‘You will keep the mind that is dependent on You in perfect peace, for it is trusting in You.’ Isaiah 26:3
That’s a promise BelovedOne.
The enemy wants to fill you to the brim with
to doom and gloom you
Capture those, PrayerWarrior, before they multiply and try to push you off a cliff.
Father God has already done the work for you. No matter what, realign your thought process to His holiness.
Know that you are His.
He is good.
He is God.
His ways are right.
You are so much more than you think you are.
You can do so much more than you think you can.
Lift your face.
Go to bed.
‘Our mouths were filled with laughter then, and our tongues with shouts of joy. Then they said among the nations, “The Lord has done great things for them.” Psalms 126:2
Do you like to play? You respond to your days with duty, you work, you figure things out, you stay obedient and busy, but have you learned to free up time to just do your own thing … that thing that really sparks a little-kid giggle deep within? Life gets far too serious some days. The enemy tries to lock us in to suffering, living drained and tired. In that weary place, you will not grow. Do not give in to that.
Loosen up, SpiritChild. Find a place, supportive and fun and creative. When you cultivate the part of you that brings you joy, you learn to savor your connection with your Creator at a whole new level. Surely, your joy brings rumbles of laughter to your Father God, too!
‘My goal is to know Him’ Philippians 3:10
Set your intent, BelovedOne,
The more familiar I become with the Most High, the more I can’t get enough. This experience continues to drive home this fact … there is a predictable pattern, throughout the history of God dealing with His children: He often asks us to do what makes no sense at the time.
Set a goal, Angelheart.
Are you coming to know Him at a very intimate level?
It takes time, set-aside time, purpose driven time, in His Word.
Some do. Some don’t.
‘By reading this you are able to understand my insight about the mystery of the Messiah. This was not made known to people in other generations as it is now revealed to His holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit’ Ephesians 3:4, 5
We have hardly scratched the surface of all the benefits that come with being God’s forgiven child. Our human thinking struggles to wrap its mind around common people
tapping into access of the divine nature of the God of the Universe.
We can basically stand outside of time itself and have real, productive, interactive encounters with our Creator.
Yet, often, we stay so caught up in the day to day that we live spiritually paralyzed.
Where are you in your spiritual arena, DearOne? It’s time to move. Ask. Ask for courage and boldness to awaken the deep in you – with color and motion and ecstasy to live. out. life. in. the. SPIRIT. of. GOD. ALMIGHTY!!
It is time.
‘but those who trust in the Lord will renew their strength; they will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary; they will walk and not faint.’ Isaiah 40:31
This is a time of much heart turmoil for everyone I know. It is easy to be overcome by fear when drowning in waves of change, Sweetheart. It is common to wonder where the Holy Spirit is when the world demands so much attention.
Slowdown, HurtingHeart. Stop. Peaks and valleys are part of the challenges that grow us.
Name your desire to know Father God better through your curveball of change. Allow the Spirit to shake out a creative quilt in you. Boldly follow the pattern of His Holy ways … His answers are personal, unique, tailor made to you alone. Trust the process, DearOne.
Trust the process.
in the Word
in the lap of the Almighty.
When the list gets unruly, to-do thoughts begin shooting impossible darts, then you are in need of some ‘time’, Dearheart. Even the slightest prayer, with time in the Word, rockets you straight into the control room of the universe. Yes, straight into the very heart of your Creator. Do not put limits on Him. Maybe, SweetSoul, you need to be reminded …
The One who loves you is:
SOVEREIGN, with the right to do as He pleases:
‘He said, “I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.” Exodus 33:19
OMNIPOTENT, all powerful: ‘For nothing will be impossible with God.’ Luke 1:37
OMNIPRESENT, He is everywhere, in Peter’s view, ‘that seasons of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, Acts 3:19
OMNISCIENT, He knows everything … past, present, future: ‘I declare the end from the beginning, and from long ago what is not yet done, saying: My plan will take place, and I will do all My will.’ Isaiah 46:10
HOLY, and He is holy in you and me … personally, privately: ‘for it is written, Be holy, because I am holy.’ 1 Peter 1:16
Soak a while in the God who surrounds you.
‘but as he who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, since it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.” (1 Peter 1:15, 16 ESV)
Shining morn’ HolyOne!
Yesterday, I listened to a speaker who was a guru of the brain and brain studies. It dawned on me that the Father gave us a groove of Holy connection to Him that is unexplainable. He calls us to His realm of Holy. He calls you, DarlingHeart, to His realm of Holy.
The brain processes are, in most part, unexplainable, and always will be – because it was created to always be in a state of aligning with God Most High. His ways are not to be totally understood, but simply trusted.
And, as you and I trust, we find the groove of the song of our soul, drumming in closer to align with His ways.
We don’t have to explain it. We just do it.
“Open my eyes that I may see,
Glimpses of truth Thou has for me,
Open my eyes illumine me,
‘The Lord asked Satan, “Where have you come from? ” “From roaming through the earth,” Satan answered Him, “and walking around on it.” Job 1:7
Like a retriever at attention to fetch a dead duck, the enemy foams to attack you, the Beloved of the Most High.
Be at attention.
Have a counterattack plan ready.
As the temptation comes,
to cut someone down,
choose to build them up;
to text an insult,
choose to send encouraging words;
to watch a vulgar video,
choose to delete the temptation;
to walk on by,
choose to help carry the load;
to skip the workout,
choose to honor and care for this temple Father God gave you.
It is all about choices.
You are defined by them.
You are highly rewarded when you choose to bring honor to our Father God.
You curse yourself when you choose to walk with the enemy.
I’m sending love to you now, PreciousOne! It is my choice!
No discipline seems enjoyable at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it yields the fruit of peace and righteousness to those who have been trained by it.’ Hebrews 12:12
Whether nailing triple axels on Olympic ice, or hitting for the cycle at Fenway, or fanning the chemistry in relationships, or expecting great FAITH to pull you from your darkest days, they all have one thing in common:
SweetSoul, the more time you spend in the heart of the Most High, the easier it becomes for you to trust Him in the grind.
Set apart time.
Tending to the flame, without fail, makes you white-hot ready for every canyon you must cross.
‘Then the Spirit lifted me up and brought me into the inner court, and the glory of the Lord filled the temple.’ Ezekiel 43:5
Lift us, Father.
Take us there.
Into Your presence.
Show us Your glory.
Show me Your GLORY.
Enter in, DearOne.
