Be My Covenant Defender

Empowered by Love” by Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Art

Psalm 69:9 (TPT) My love for you has my heart on fire! My passion consumes me for your house! Nothing will turn me away, even though I endure all the insults of those who insult you.

Beloved, attune your ear to My heart. Be so consumed with My Word and My standard of righteousness that our desires meld into one. Allow My passion to burn as a fire in your veins, and rise up as My covenant defender. Continue reading “Be My Covenant Defender”

Stay Alert, Be Vigilant

“Wake Up” by Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Art

1 Peter 5:8 (NIV) Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.

Beloved, be aware of the schemes, lies, and devices of the enemy. Resist the desire of the flesh to side with the opinions of man. This war is not against flesh and blood; come higher, come see from heaven’s perspective.

Ephesians 2:6 (TPT) He raised us up with Christ the exalted One, and we ascended with him into the glorious perfection and authority of the heavenly realm, for we are now co-seated as one with Christ!

You are a pilgrim in this land, this is not your home. Silence the noise of the earth by drawing closer to Me in our secret place. Refuse to become distracted by the noise. Be diligent to guard your eyes, ears, and your heart. Most importantly, protect our time just as a Mama bear protects her cub. Bring every concern to Me, for I know all things—just ask.

Jeremiah 33:3 (VOICE) Eternal One: Call to Me, and I will answer you. I will tell you of great things, things beyond what you can imagine, things you could never have known.

Tend Your Light

Your light, Father, it calls to us – like a lighthouse on a bank surrounded by a body of water. It may be the very dark of night and the storm may be raging around us, but the beacon of hope is shining out. It is guiding us back to safety, back to the wonderful warm glow of light that floods – out piercing any darkness. The light is brighter in the darkness, and the darkness cannot shut it out.  Continue reading “Tend Your Light”

Our Weakness, God’s Strength

“Lamb of God ” by Meghan Williams, Dyed4you Art

2 Corinthians 12:9-11 (TPT) But he answered me, “My grace is always more than enough for you, and my power finds its full expression through your weakness.” So I will celebrate my weaknesses, for when I’m weak I sense more deeply the mighty power of Christ living in me. 

I must admit that there are times when I have viewed a picture of a lamb and cringed. It’s not because I dislike how they look. On the contrary, such gentle and innocent faces are precious. However, it has been hard for me to accept that such sweet creatures were God’s choice as a sacrifice. In just the same way, our sinless and meek Savior—the Lamb of God—was God’s choice to bring atonement for the world. Continue reading “Our Weakness, God’s Strength”

Trust Me

Proverbs 3:5 (AMPC) “Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding.”

Deuteronomy 1:29 …”Don’t be scared! Don’t be afraid… You won’t have to fight this battle yourselves; the Eternal your God, who always goes ahead of you, will fight for you… haven’t you seen the Eternal, your True God, carrying you the way a parent carries a child? … He always goes ahead of you… He always shows you the right way to go.”

Daughter, {hearing the tender sound of His voice} I see you. I see your pain. I know it has not been easy for you. Yes, I do see the battle raging—trust Me, you are not alone. Refuse to fight this battle in your own strength—your efforts have left you wounded. You’re feeling hurt, tired and alone. Come, {hand reaching} allow Me to lead the way {wipes tears, takes hand}. Breathe, daughter. {takes a shallow breath} Breathe deep. {pauses, close her eyes and breathes deep. As she breathes she releases the tension and tears begin to stream as she let’s go of all fear and anxiety. As she breathes deep she can feel strength being restored and a renewed sense of peace and trust}. “Look around! Do you see Heaven’s armies?! I told you, you are not alone.” {She opens her eyes. She is overlooking a large city filled with multitudes of Angels who are fighting on her behalf}  Continue reading “Trust Me”

Exult in Me Throughout the Nations

Romans 5:2 (NASB) …and we exult in hope of the glory of God.

Beloved, find exuberant joy in hope – the hope of Me and of My glory. Exult in Me throughout the nations. May your praise abound in all the earth. For I AM worthy of all honor and praise, so let your hope rest in Me. 

Glory in the peace that hope in Me brings. Allow that confident assurance to shine forth in your countenance that those who see you might see and ask about about the foundation of your hope. This way your hope in Me isn’t simply your own bedrock, but also a beacon to all. Continue reading “Exult in Me Throughout the Nations”

Rest In My Strength

2 Corinthians 12:9 (AMP) but He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you [My lovingkindness and My mercy are more than enough—always available—regardless of the situation]; for [My] power is being perfected [and is completed and shows itself most effectively] in [your] weakness.” Therefore, I will all the more gladly boast in my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ [may completely enfold me and] may dwell in me.

Beloved, I am your strength. I am the very power that sustains your life. My ability to sustain you is much more than physical, and it is always available for you to draw on. However, never is My keeping power more apparent than in times when you feel the weakest. Yes, times of trial can be humbling. Through them, you learn to draw on My strength day to day, and moment to moment when necessary. But I do not wish for you lose sight of this truth, for this is who I am to all the days of your life. Continue reading “Rest In My Strength”

Steadfast in Vigilance

1 Peter 5:8 (AMPC) Be well balanced (temperate, sober of mind), be vigilant and cautious at all times; for that enemy of yours, the devil, roams around like a lion roaring [in fierce hunger], seeking someone to seize upon and devour.

Beloved, this is not a time to slumber or be distracted. The hour is late. This is a time for sobriety and vigilance. Be awake and alert. The King is coming. Make ready and remain watchful, for you do not know the hour, but will not want to be caught unaware.

Resist the urge to become complacent or lackadaisical. In doing so you become vulnerable to attacks intended to derail you from My purposes. Instead, remain steadfast in vigilance and prepare for the King to come, for I AM coming.

Rise Up

“Wake Up” – by Meghan Williams, Dyed4you Art

Rise up, My people, rise up. The alarm sounds for the time of war, and I need you to be awake and vigilant. There is much territory for the kingdom of light to take, and I have fully equipped you to cast out the kingdom of darkness. Therefore, take care not become lax and forget who you are and what I have called you to do. Resist the voice of defeat which would have you believe you are a victim of any earthly circumstance. Shake off the weariness of past battles fought in your own strength. A new day of war is ahead—a war already won by My might and My Spirit. Continue reading “Rise Up”
