Tenacious Praise

Psalm 13:1, 5 (AMP) How long, O Lord? Will You forget me forever? How long will You hide Your face from me? But I have trusted and relied on and been confident in Your lovingkindness and faithfulness; My heart shall rejoice and delight in Your salvation.

Beloved, be tenacious in your praise. Refuse to leave the taste of concern or censure on your lips. Rather fill your mouth with exaltation. Resist the urge to accuse or doubt Me. Share your heart, but remain steadfast in truth. Be firmly rooted in the knowledge that I AM good and trustworthy – wholly worthy of your praise. 

Put your hope in Me and trust My timing to be perfect. Trust and praise, beloved. Trust and praise. Declare My goodness whether your circumstances underscore that truth or not. I AM always working all things for good and am always worthy of all praise.

El Elyon (Most High God)

1 Kings 7:21 (GW) Hiram set up the pillars in the temple’s entrance hall. He set up the pillar on the right and named it Jachin [He Establishes]. Then he set up the pillar on the left and named it Boaz [In Him Is Strength].

Beloved, I establish and I bring strength. I stand fast, and I AM your firm foundation. Trust that I AM building that which is needed for what is to come. I see what lies ahead, and each and every need is accounted for. Rest in Me. 

Pillar of truth. Pillar of strength. Unchangeable and unwavering am I. Fully dependable. Wholly reliable. I AM El Elyon, the Most High God. Fully trust in Me.  Continue reading “El Elyon (Most High God)”

Surrender Your Plans to Me

Jeremiah 31:3 (GW) The Lord appeared to me in a faraway place and said, “I love you with an everlasting love. So I will continue to show you my kindness.

Beloved, never has My love for you dimmed or been diminished. No, it burns like the brightest flame, casting light and bringing warmth – a steady assurance and unyielding support. I AM and have been at your side, and ever will I be.

Let My love strengthen and encourage you – bring you comfort when you are in need. But press forward, beloved. Refuse to turn back. The threshold lies before you, and like a bridegroom carries the bride into the chamber, so, My love, will I carry you as you surrender your plans to Me.

Be Filled and Satisfied in Me {Moments with God}

{my heart whispers} Father, you are worth it all. Willingly I lay down all I have and all I am at your feet. I surrender everything into Your hands because I trust you completely (or at least my heart desires to do so). I refuse to hold on or try to control things from a place of fear or doubt. I know Your perfect love casts out all fear and I know you are good. I choose to believe. I refuse to let circumstances, emotions, or any fleshly evidence convince me otherwise. I choose to trust in You. 

{He gently replies} Beloved, all you have is Mine – freely given. Be strong, and resist the urge to judge My goodness based on earthly situations. Choose to know Me. Delight yourself in Me, not because you know that I will then give you the desires of your heart, but because I AM worth delighting in. Operate from a pure heart. As you have surrendered all to Me, now make Me your all. Be filled and be satisfied in Me. 

Mark 10:28 (VOICE) Peter: Master, we have left behind everything we had to follow You.

El Shammah (the Lord is Present)

Psalm 46:1 (TPT) God, you’re such a safe and powerful place to find refuge! You’re a proven help in time of trouble— more than enough and always available whenever I need you.

Beloved, rest secure, for I will never leave you or forsake you. I AM El Shammah. I AM the Lord who is present, and I AM with you always. No trial or temper-tantrum can scare Me off. I don’t grow weary of you or your needs. For you are Mine – My beloved child, the apple of My eye. 

I AM all you need. Cling tightly to Me – refusing to let go regardless of the hardships that come. Trust I AM with you, walking you through them, and working all things for good. So rest in My presence, beloved, and trust your heart in My capable hands. 

Elohim Yakol (God Most Able)

Psalm 21:7 (VOICE) For the king puts his trust in the Eternal, so he will not be shaken because of the persistent love of the Most High God.

Beloved, refuse to be shaken. Have complete trust in Me. I AM worthy. And I AM willing and more than able to carry you and all that concerns you. No load is too heavy – no need beyond notice. I AM El Roi, the God who sees. 

I love you, and what matters to you, matters to me. Let Me lavish you with My love even as you respond in kind. Trust in Me, and rest in that trust, for I AM able. Behold My name is Elohim Yakol, God most able. 

Adonai Ori (the Lord your Light) and YHVH Shalom (the Lord your Peace)

2 Timothy 1:7 (AMP) For God did not give us a spirit of timidity or cowardice or fear, but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of sound judgment and personal discipline [abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind and self-control].

Beloved, push back as fear tries to encroach upon you. You know it is not from Me. Find strength and rest in My presence and resist the urge to succumb to anything dark, like confusion or anxiety. I AM Adonai Ori – the Lord your light, and light dispels darkness. 

So stand in the light unafraid. Refuse to be moved or intimidated by darkness around you. You know Me and you know My voice, refuse to be moved by another’s. Stand fast and be at peace, for I AM YHVH Shalom, the Lord your peace. 

I Sustain You

Isaiah 40:31 (AMP) But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] Will gain new strength and renew their power; They will lift up their wings [and rise up close to God] like eagles [rising toward the sun]; They will run and not become weary, They will walk and not grow tired.

Beloved, as you soar with Me, I sustain you. I lift you and carry you by My Spirit. Rest in Me. Trust Me to carry you where you need to go. Soaring on My breath, rising on eagles wings. 

Trust Me to show you what you need to see. To give you the perspective and vision I would have you have. And when I don’t show you, trust that I have My reasons then too. Refuse to get tempted into a downward draft, stay firmly in My flow and rest in Me. I AM the sustainer of your life. 

Refuse to Withhold

Matthew 16:25 (VOICE) The person who wants to save his life must lose it, and she who loses her life for Me will find it.

Beloved, refuse to hold anything back. The temptation is always to protect oneself, to hedge one’s bets, to cover your own interests, but I AM fully trustworthy to see to your needs. You cannot both protect yourself and surrender to Me fully. To yield requires trust, and to do so without condition.

Search your heart, beloved, and see if there are areas you  are yet withholding. Resist the urge to try to “help” Me take care of you, for I have the job well in hand. Give yourself to Me completely, and know I AM covering you in My great love.

Trust My Love

1 John 4:16 (TPT) We have come into an intimate experience with God’s love, and we trust in the love he has for us. God is love! Those who are living in love are living in God, and God lives through them.

Beloved, trust My love for you. Relish and delight in it. Be intentional to see all the ways I lavish you with My affections. I know your heart and I know it well, for it is precious to Me. Abide in this place of intimacy with Me – cocooned in the safety of My heart for you. 

Allow My love to penetrate and saturate, and live as one with a keen understanding of being inherently worth loving – someone worth pursuing, someone worth giving it all for, for that indeed is My heart for you. And as you walk in the confidence that My love inspires, you will change the lives of those around you, and they will know Me more simply by knowing you.
