Beloved, refuse to resist the “prescribed burns” of My holy fire. In the same way that farmers will burn their fields to the ground to encourage enriched regrowth, so will I bring what appears to be brutal devastation for the purpose of bringing forth new life. This seeming destruction may feel at odds with My character, which you know to be good, but when you embrace the fiery season, it becomes more life-giving than you could begin to imagine.

Many years back, a prophet named Richard Knight shared an analogy about operating in the prophetic that was so profound it has stuck with me a decade and a half later. He likened operating in the prophetic to being a postman. It’s our job to deliver the message – that’s it. The postman isn’t responsible for making sure bills are paid. They aren’t on the hook for ensuring RSVPs are sent out. They aren’t even responsible for making sure mail is retrieved from the mailbox. They simply deliver it. Continue reading “Being a Yielded Vessel of God’s (John 15)”
The Lord is saying that He has planted in you the gift of wisdom. Receive His gift and allow it to flow freely. Like a cork being pulled from a bottle, you’ve been released to flow in increased measure. So pour out, beloved. Pour out in humble obedience. Resist the urge to feel selfconscious, instead choose to focus on the One who has bestowed that which you pour. Continue reading “Word of Wisdom – Simply Pour”
Psalm 77:1 (VOICE) I cry up to heaven, “My God, True God,” and He hears.
Beloved, when you cry out to Me, I always hear. No matter where you are or what you’ve done, I AM always listening. I do not turn a deaf ear to you in punishment or neglect. Those who know Me know that does not align with My character.
Just as an earthly parent uses wisdom in granting their children’s requests, so do I. In the moments I don’t respond the way you expected, know that is not a sign of My neglect, but rather of your inappropriate expectations. I’m not a genie in a bottle to call and command, so be sure that is not your expectation.
What I AM is El Chai – the Living God, and I love My children, and am mindful of their needs and their cries – of all things concerning them. So know that I AM present and listening. I will never leave you nor forsake you. So cry out to Me, beloved, for I AM listening.
Luke 1:33 (NKJV) “And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.”
Beloved, I AM ageless. I AM beyond time. To know Me and the things of Me, you must embrace eternity. Your time on earth may be fleeting, but eternity is everlasting. Embrace the joy of knowing Me, and dwell in My presence.
Look to Me in times of trial. Look to Me in times of joy. Trust that with your eyes on Me, your walk will be secure. I reign. Let Me help you stay Kingdom-minded. Yield to Me – let Me embrace you in My loving arms, for I AM Olam Zerowa – the Everlasting Arms. Continue reading “Embrace Eternity”
I am in the details. I know all about you and every need. Why do you not think I would want you to come to me for any and every issue you may have? Even the little ones that seem insignificant to you, they are all important to me. Every hair on your head is numbered. I so do care about you and every situation you face. Bring them all to me, the big ones and the little ones. No one thing is too small or too hard for me to do. Is there anything too hard for me? I am Lord who created all things, and I am in the details of your life. You are important to me, and I desire you to seek My face on everything that affects you to the smallest detail. Give it all to me and watch me work. Continue reading “Details”
I had a vision of a shallow fast moving river flowing down into a waterfall then onward. A breath of wind moved in and around the river like a ribbon. This vision shifted to an ocean where I could see the depth and layers it carried. Then I could see the river flowing into the ocean. The river joined seamlessly being pulled into the bottom layers of the ocean and then up and over into the waves. The breath of wind had been riding on top of the river and instead of smoothly flowing over the ocean water it pushed against the ocean waves and caused an increase of water droplets spraying upward and outward.

Isaiah 58:11 (VOICE) The Eternal One will never leave you; He will lead you in the way that you should go. When you feel dried up and worthless, God will nourish you and give you strength. And you will grow like a garden lovingly tended; you will be like a spring whose water never runs out.
Beloved, let My love wash over you and soothe the broken, dry places. Be saturated in My presence – no longer dry and brittle, but supple and flexible. I AM the potter and you are the clay. When clay becomes dry and difficult to work with, water makes it pliable and easy to mold.
So be saturated by My Spirit. Become fully yielded in My hands. In the same way dried clay can be broken, but supple, wet clay simply adapts and changes shape, so I have created you to flourish regardless of what comes your way. Saturate yourself in Me, and be whole. Continue reading “Be Saturated”
I keep hearing the Father say to just be yielded vessels to Me and for Me. Allow Me to work in and through you, allow Me access to all places. Those places that you might wall off or shut down to others, allow Me access so I can bring in My rush of healing, love, and provision. I will remove all doubt and fear. And like the verse says, “I can do all things through Christ” (Philippians 3:14). You can do all things and have boldness, courage, and strength to do anything that I have indeed called you to. Continue reading “Yielded Vessels”
Psalm 4:5 (VOICE) From this day forward, offer to God the right sacrifice from a heart made right by God. Entrust yourself to the Eternal.
Beloved, entrust your heart to Me. Resist the urge to hold back or try to protect yourself. You are safe with Me. I do not promise a life without trial, but I promise to give you the strength to endure.
Hold on to Me, and honor Me with the offering I most desire: a surrendered heart. Yield your plans to Mine. Yield your will to Mine. Yield to Me, beloved. Yield. Entrust your heart to Me.
