True Love

Song of Solomon 8:7 (VOICE) …If a person tried to exchange all of his wealth for love, then he would be surely rejected.

Beloved, you cannot buy My love anymore than I can gain your constancy through gifts. A love available for purchase is no love at all. So if your love is conditional upon My blessings, it is not truly love.

Love stands in the face of trials and adversity. Love is immovable and unchangeable. True love is unconditional and constant. That is the love I have lavished on you. Will you lavish the same upon Me?

Song of Solomon 8:7 (VOICE) No amount of water can quench love; a raging flood cannot drown it out. If a person tried to exchange all of his wealth for love, then he would be surely rejected.

Nothing Can Separate You From My Love

Romans 8:38-39 (VOICE) For I have every confidence that nothing—not death, life, heavenly messengers, dark spirits, the present, the future, spiritual powers, height, depth, nor any created thing—can come between us and the love of God revealed in the Anointed, Jesus our Lord.

Beloved, nothing can separate you from My love. I AM steadfast and immovable – bedrock, a firm foundation for you. No shortcoming or poor choice will scare Me off or cause Me to turn away. I AM relentless in My love for you. 

I will not slumber and I do not sleep. My exquisite longing for you is unending. Breathe Me in, beloved. Clutch Me tightly to your chest. Refuse to allow anyone or anything to cause separation between us. I AM yours, beloved, and you are Mine.

Be Moved

Matthew 9:36 (AMP) When He saw the crowds, He was moved with compassion and pity for them, because they were dispirited and distressed, like sheep without a shepherd.

Beloved, see as I see. Look not to the world with judgement and disgust, but rather be moved with compassion. For without Me people will seek every manner of substitute to fill the God-shaped void within them. 

So be light, and shine brightly. Win those around you to Me without needing a word. Shine forth godly character saturated with unconditional love, that they might have a taste of My heart for them and know no substitute will ever suffice.  Continue reading “Be Moved”

Cast Your Crown

Revelation 4:10-11 (AMP) the twenty-four elders fall down before Him who sits on the throne, and they worship Him who lives forever and ever; and they throw down their crowns before the throne, saying, “Worthy are You, our Lord and God, to receive the glory and the honor and the power; for You created all things, and because of Your will they exist, and were created and brought into being.”

Beloved, what will you do with the honors given you? What will you do with the blessings I put into your hands? Will you use them to build your own kingdom? Or will you willingly and joyously choose to lay them at My feet. 

Beloved, cast your crown before Me. Choose Me as the most valuable and precious gift of all. Find Me worthy and spend your life yielded and poured out before Me. For I AM faithful and true, worthy and steadfast – I AM the loving, righteous God. Worship Me.  Continue reading “Cast Your Crown”

Ardent Devotion

Numbers 25:11 (TPT) Eternal One:  Phinehas (Eleazar’s son and Priest Aaron’s grandson) has done well. He saved the Israelites. Because he was so zealous on My account, tolerating no compromise, I did not consume the people of Israel with My jealousy.

Beloved, I see your passion for Me. Your unreserved willingness to be obedient. Your steadfast intention to walk in integrity and model it for those around you by intentionally setting the bar high and through your very actions challenging them to step up and be their best self. 

I do not take your zeal lightly. And though you’ve acted in quiet humility, I will raise you up and showcase you as one who loves Me with their whole heart. So continue to shine brightly, beloved, and know that I recognize and am moved by your ardent devotion.  Continue reading “Ardent Devotion”

Key to the Kingdom: Reflect Me in Unhindered Glory

Colossians 2:10 (VOICE) You, too, are being completed in Him, the One who has dominion over all rule, all authority.

Beloved, remember the One you serve. I AM sovereign. I AM not some powerless, man-crafted idol. I AM the Creator of heaven and earth, the great I AM, the Commander of the hosts of heaven. Those who see Me tremble in awe. And you are on My side, and guided by My hand – acting on My behalf. This is no light calling. It is a weighty responsibility, but one for which you’ve been prepared. 

So shine, beloved. Be you without restraint. Allow the embodiment of all I’ve placed within you to radiate forth as you reflect Me in unhindered glory that those who see you might know Me. Let nothing dim your blaze, for simply to shine uncompromised and unashamed is more fearsome warfare than you can imagine – it is a key to the Kingdom.  Continue reading “Key to the Kingdom: Reflect Me in Unhindered Glory”

The Power Source

1 John 1:5 (AMP) This is the message [of God’s promised revelation] which we have heard from Him and now announce to you, that God is Light [He is holy, His message is truthful, He is perfect in righteousness], and in Him there is no darkness at all [no sin, no wickedness, no imperfection].

Beloved, I AM El Ori, God your Light, and surely you must know the innate power light embodies. Light when harnessed can start fires or form a laser to create a tool both precise and powerful. Light illuminates. It brings truth. It mandates its atmosphere. Light controls the darkness, not the other way around. 

What can darkness do? It can distort and lie, but it has no real power. It has only as much power as the lack of light allows. And you are called to be a light – to reflect Me. So shine brightly. Don’t concern yourself with the darkness, but rather focus on the Source you are reflecting, for that is where the power comes from. So make room for the Power Source and reflect Me brightly. 

Sweet Fruit of Forgiveness

Matthew 18:22 (VOICE) Jesus: You must forgive not seven times, but seventy times seven.

Beloved, I have called you to choose forgiveness. No offense against you is so great it is worthy of holding on to and creating separation from Me. Forgive as you have been forgiven. There is no need to hold offense when I AM your champion. 

Release injustices and unkind words and acts into My hands and trust Me to be the Righteous Judge I AM. Entrusting them to Me doesn’t mean what has been done is acceptable, it simply means you’re entrusting to My judgment the most appropriate means of addressing it. So release it to Me and leave it in My capable hands and let the sweet fruit of forgiveness ripen.

Drown in My Affections

Song of Songs 1:2 (TPT) Let him smother me with kisses—his Spirit-kiss divine. So kind are your caresses, I drink them in like the sweetest wine!

Beloved, receive My fresh flow from heaven. For I AM pouring out My love like the sweetest of wine to minister to your heart. Heady and intoxicating – be swept away in the rushing flow as you surrender to My love. 

Persistent and irresistible, yield to My heart, beloved. You have nothing to fear from Me, for I love you with a passionate intensity beyond your wildest imaginings. You are the apple of My eye and immeasurably precious to Me. Drown in My affections and be made whole. 

Lead with a Life of Unashamed Worship

Exodus 15:20 (GW) Then the prophet Miriam, Aaron’s sister, took a tambourine in her hand. All the women, dancing with tambourines, followed her.

Beloved, where you lead, others will follow, so be intentional about the example you set. Steer others towards what is good and help them be their best selves by first doing the same. Lay a path for others to follow, then lead them straight to Me. 

Make your praises loud, and dance before your King. Live a life filled with praise to the One who is worthy, for such a life is one that is never wasted and always bears good fruit. So worship unashamed, beloved, and make Me the center of your world.
