Hold Nothing Back

Matthew 22:37 (TPT) Jesus answered him, “‘Love  the Lord your God with every passion of your heart, with all the energy of your being, and with every thought that is within you.’

Beloved, hold nothing back. Give Me all your love, devotion, and passion, but also give Me free reign to mold and shape, to refine and prune. Trust Me to do so with love and with purpose, for My heart is to see you bloom into your best self. 

I created you and I know your innermost parts. I know the purpose I designed you for and I made you well. You are not “too much.” A fish on land looks foolish and weak, but put him in the water for which he was created and he will flourish. 

Trust Me to place you where you belong. Refuse to waste time wishing you were different or trying to be so. You are fearfully and wonderfully made. Be you and be you to the fullest. 

Trust Me to Do What is Good

Psalm 89:14 (VOICE) Your rule is rooted deeply in justice and righteousness— unfailing love and truth lead from the way ahead of You.

Beloved, I AM full of love and rich in mercy. I AM truth and fully trustworthy. Rely on Me. I will not be mocked, those that sow shall surely reap. Will I allow one who sows that which is evil to reap that which is good? That would be an injustice. 

Trust Me to do what is right. Trust Me to see and know. Trust Me to hear and respond to the cries of My people, for I AM a good God and righteous and just. Trust Me to do what is good. 

Swing Wide the Gates

Psalm 24:7 (TPT) So wake up, you living gateways! Lift up your heads, you ageless doors of destiny! Welcome the King of Glory, for he is about to come through you. 

Beloved, make way and make room. Swing wide the gates of your heart and make room for Me to come in all My Splendor. Live a life that models the beauty of one who is open and yielded to Me, for the spiritual power of that will shift atmospheres and cause the hardest hearts to pause in wonder.

Be a living testimony to the love of God – My love, for as you consciously and continually yield in your heart it causes a spiritual shift that becomes evident in the natural. So wake up and open the gates and prepare for things to move!

Sweet Surrender

Psalm 91:4 (TPT) His massive arms are wrapped around you, protecting you. You can run under his covering of majesty and hide. His arms of faithfulness are a shield keeping you from harm.

Beloved, I AM here and steadfast. Ever vigilant. Ever ready. My desire to protect you is acute. Consistently make the choice to run to Me. Be intentional to surrender to My covering. You cannot both protect yourself and surrender to Me – and only I can truly cover you, so hide yourself in Me.

Relinquish control, beloved, and trust Me completely. I AM the Rock of Ages, the Everlasting Arms, your Deliverer and your Strong Tower. Find your rest in Me. Cast your burdens down and surrender your cares to Me, for I AM well able to meet each and every need.

Trust Me. Trust that My ways are perfect even when they are not your ways. I see things you do not see and know things you do not know, and I operate with complete understanding, so surrender yourself to Me and delight in the sweetness found in that surrender.

Confident Assurance

1 Kings 18:44 (AMP) And at the seventh time the servant said, “A cloud as small as a man’s hand is coming up from the sea.” And Elijah said, “Go up, say to Ahab, ‘Prepare your chariot and go down, so that the rain shower does not stop you.’”

Beloved, step out in faith. Trust that I will meet you there. Know My instructions in your heart, and declare My words with your mouth. Then watch with eager expectation as I bring to fruition the promises at hand.

Refuse to be discouraged regardless how intimidating the foe. As long as you yield to Me, victory is assured. Stand tall in confident assurance, knowing I AM with you. I call you mighty warrior, and the hosts of heaven respond to your lead. Walk in the fullness of the mantle resting on you.

Spirit of the Fear of the Lord

Job 28:28 (CSB) He said to mankind, “The fear of the LORD –that is wisdom. And to turn from evil is understanding.”

Beloved, as you see Me as I AM, you cannot help but be moved by My holiness and respond in kind. In reverential fear, choose to reject that which is evil and turn your back on sin. Resist temptation.

Allow your heart to be so tender that a gentle whisper from My Spirit brings conviction and change. Willingly yield to My Spirit, beloved, and choose to flow in the Spirit of the Fear of the Lord.

Spirit of the Lord

Luke 4:18 (VOICE) The Spirit of the Lord the Eternal One is on Me. Why? Because the Eternal designated Me to be His representative to the poor, to preach good news to them.

Beloved, be My voice. Open your mouth and trust Me to fill it. Allow My Spirit to flow through you, to inspire thought and action, to give vision of the unseen, and to bring prophetic revelation in My perfect timing. Trust, and yield to My flow.

As you partner with My Spirit, you will see the miraculous take place. The supernatural will become as if it were common so clear and continuous its evidence. The gifts of My Spirit alive and on display for all to see. The beauty of My glory manifest on earth and in the heavens. Choose, beloved, choose to yield and flow in Me.

Rainbow Waters (Seven Spirits of God)

Seven Spirits of God: Flow in the Spirit by Dyed4you Art

Isaiah 44:3 (NKJV) For I will pour water on him who is thirsty, And floods on the dry ground; I will pour My Spirit on your descendants, And My blessing on your offspring;

Beloved, thirst for Me, for I will not leave you parched. I delight to saturate you with My Spirit – to flood you to overflowing that you might bless others in the overflow. Pour out without reserve knowing I AM faithful to pour in. Allow My Holy Spirit to bring forth abundant life, with beauty blooming forth even in the desert and the dry season.

For I give the only water that truly satisfies. Seek Me, beloved. Yield to My Spirit. Allow each facet to manifest in splendor in your life: My Spirit, Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Might, Knowledge, and a reverential fear of Me. Flow in each glorious stream, and let the rainbow waters flow in and through you bring glory and honor to Me. Continue reading “Rainbow Waters (Seven Spirits of God)”

Flow in Unity

Ephesians 4:3 (VOICE) Make every effort to preserve the unity the Spirit has already created, with peace binding you together.

Beloved, flow in unity. Be intentional to choose unity, even when that means sacrificing your pride or your plans. Yield to My heart and My plans. Love your fellow believers and extend much grace to them, just as much grace has been extended to you.

For you to flow in harmony as one, you must walk in love. Resist the urge to judge. Trust My Spirit to guide and correct each of you. Bring your concerns to Me, and then leave them in My capable hands as you embrace your siblings in Christ with sincere, unfettered love.

Coming Promises

Ruth 3:1,5 (AMP) Then Naomi her mother-in-law said to Ruth, “My daughter, shall I not look for security and a home for you, so that it may be well with you? Ruth answered her, “I will do everything that you say.”

Beloved, I see the promises I have set before you, and I know each step you must take to walk in the fullness of them. Trust Me to lead. Yield completely to My plan. You don’t have to agree or understand, you simply have to obey.

This is a matter of trust, which is a matter of faith. Will you wait when I say wait, and act when I say act? Will you trust that I have not forgotten you even when the wait seems long? Will you rest in the knowledge that My timing is perfect and My plans for you are good?

Know that I AM God. Be content with every part of the journey. As you wait in expectation for the promises ahead, be mindful not to slip into impatience, frustration, or resentment. I do not toy with My children. Even the time of waiting is fruitful, so embrace it and wait with joy for the coming promises.
