Eye of the Lord

“Surrendered Heart” by Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Art

Psalm 17:8 (VOICE) Keep close watch over me as the apple of Your eye; shelter me in the shadow of Your wings.

At some point in my childhood, I was seriously convinced that the moon was the eye of God. Before I would go to bed, I would sit by the window and stare at that bright light in the darkness sure that the One who loved me was staring back. At this time, I didn’t know about the Scripture that says the eyes of the Lord are always upon the righteous (Psalm 34:15) or how we are the apple of His eye (Psalm 17:8). Yet somehow, I instinctively knew this truth.  Continue reading “Eye of the Lord”

Let Peace Be Your Guard

Philippians 4:6-7 (NKJV) Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. 

Notice what “the peace of God” does for you. It will “guard” your mind. From what? Acting impulsively, acting selfishly, or acting maliciously. Acting in any way that will result in loss rather than gain – and regret rather than joy.  Continue reading “Let Peace Be Your Guard”

Burn Like Holy Fire

Consuming Fire by Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Art


That burning inside you is of Me.  I placed that flame inside you and the wind of the Holy Spirit fans it. Giving it strength when needed. The strength to stand up for injustice, to fight for one another. We are at war!  The things of this world and the things of Heaven.  The enemy would rather you be quiet and let your fire die down to tiny embers. I stoke the fires, I resurrect the dead things.

Our Lion Shepherd

Peaceable Kingdom by Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Art piece

Our Lion Shepherd looks after the sheep – the Father takes care of each one. He is gentle with us, but in an instant our fierce Lion Shepherd can come out and roar over any who threaten His sheep. He is protective of His flock with His eyes ever watchful. He guides us along the path of life and as the path gets hard, He never leaves us. He gives true rest by the refreshing of His stream, nourishing our parched areas. He gives out daily blessings, may we always be thankful for His grace and kindness. The true Shepherd tending His sheep. Continue reading “Our Lion Shepherd”

Double the Strength

Psalm 36:7 (NIV) How priceless is your unfailing love, O God! People take refuge in the shadow of your wings.

When you are beaten down, exhausted, hopeless and don’t know where to turn… take refuge in His embrace under the shadow of His wings. There you are protected, nurtured and there you will receive your healing. He knows your pain and the wounds caused by others, ultimately Our God is the only true Healer for them.  Continue reading “Double the Strength”

High and Lifted Up

Isaiah 54:5 (VOICE) Because the One who made you will be your husband; the One called Commander of heavenly armies Will set you right again, the Holy One of Israel. It’s not for nothing that He is called “God of all the earth.”

Beloved, I AM the One who loves you best. I AM the Lord your God, the Holy One, the Lord your Maker – YHVH Asah. I AM sovereign, and I AM mighty. I command the heavenly armies. I AM YHVH Sabaoth, the Lord of hosts. 

What do you think you have to fear? I AM the enthroned One – high and lifted up, who is above Me? Who is mighty enough to stand against Me? And you have chosen to stand at My side and under My protection. So again I say, what have you to fear? Rest in Me.

Put Your Trust in Me

Isaiah 43:1 (AMP) But now, this is what the Lord, your Creator says, O Jacob, And He who formed you, O Israel, “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you [from captivity]; I have called you by name; you are Mine!

Beloved, what have you to fear? For you are Mine. I made you. I know your innermost parts. Nothing about you is secret from Me. I AM fully able to protect and support My children. So rest in and rely on Me. 

The enemy’s plans are not a mystery to Me. Nor do his forces exceed Mine. I AM all-powerful and have all the hosts of heaven at My command. Is anything too hard for Me? Resist the urge to lean on your own strength, and instead put your trust in Me.
