“All things are possible for you, but not all things are beneficial.  This is where your trust meets your faith in me.  Often you desire to go down one path, but I have a better path for you to follow; a path that keeps you near to me; a path that keeps you dependent upon me.  To live in unity with my Spirit, you must be dependent upon me.

Often the road ahead is not clear, and you cannot see the big picture, but you must remember that I see all, and I am in all of it.  It is my desire to fulfill your life and to bless you.  It is my desire that you’d have fellowship with me each day, and that you’d rely upon me for all the things that are out of your hands, remembering that they are in mine.

Sometimes you circle around as if you’ve forgotten that I am right there with you. Allow my presence to be a comfort to you.  You do not have to live in a whirlwind, you can choose to abide in me and remember that I am God.  I know what is best for you and no matter what you are facing, I will always be with you.

Receive this encouragement today as it is for you.  I want you to depend upon me in every area of your life. I am only as far away as your faith allows me to be. So, in faith, I encourage you to embrace me by accepting the plans I have for you today and trusting me to work everything out for good in your life.

My love for you is perfect. I always know what is best for you. There is no fear in my perfect love so wrap yourself up tightly in it today, and rest for I am near to you.”

  • “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5,6

a Whisper…flow with me

“I am fully aware that your journey in this life is not always easy. I know that things are not always as you desire them to be. Yet, I see you learning to trust me in all things. I see your desire to have a grateful heart and to please me.  This honors me. It is a form of your daily worship to acknowledge me and focus on my presence.

When the needs of your flesh are not being met, your spiritual needs will always be fulfilled because of your love for me and your desire for more of me.  These are the deeper things that keep you calm and focused amidst the challenges you face.

You are not alone because all my children face these things in life. However, it is my desire that you recognize your need of me.  I want to be needed.  I want you to draw upon my Spirit so that I can satisfy you with the important things you need to sustain you in this life, which will also carry you to the next. My blessings come because of your faith in me, they come through a grateful heart.  It is only I who can help you become all that you are meant to be for my glory and in my service.

Be who you are and accept others knowing that regardless of their personal interest in you, you are mine; you are capable; you are loving and kind and good because my Spirit flows in you…like a river…it keeps you in peace…it keeps you moving forward…it keeps us in sync and we flow together to accomplish what needs to be done.

You need not fear or be discouraged for I AM with you.  You will know my blessing in the place where I have led you. You must continue to trust me for I AM your Father who loves you. I have provided for you and will continue to do so.

Be blessed today my child and feel the warmth of my love poured out upon you.  Let my Son shine in your heart today, the light of Jesus, the Prince of Peace.”

  • “Those who know your name trust in you, for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you.” Psalms 9:10
  • “The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well -watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.” Isaiah 58:11

a Whisper…from I AM

“I AM that I AM, and you are my creation. You’ve been created out of love and planned from the beginning of time to live the life that I have called you to; to be one with my Spirit, and in sync with my purposes for you. I AM your great teacher, and I AM your trustworthy guide. You can abide in me and know that as your Father, I love you with an everlasting love; a love that is secure and dependable; a love that is constant and present.

You know me, you hear my voice, and you follow after me. I will give you all that you need to get through the life I’ve planned for you. I will carry you in times of trouble and lead you beside still waters. Though you walk in this valley of death and imperfections, I will be your strength and comfort; your faithful companion and guide.  You never have to fear when you walk with me.

Open your heart to receive all that I have for you, to know the many blessings I provide, which are far greater and more satisfying than the material things this world offers you.  All things I give you are for your enjoyment, but the deeper things of the Spirit must be sought out and found as you look to me, as you desire more of me.  I cannot lead you where you will not go.

Don’t fear your journey for my presence will never depart from you. My blessing will be close at hand and my provision will make a way even in times of uncertainty.

Today, find your heart safe in the shadow of my wings and let the river of my love flow in and through you, carrying you to all that I have for you. Open your eyes to see me even in mundane tasks because you may receive a blessing you are not expecting. Abide in me as I AM in you and be satisfied in my unceasing love for you through Christ Jesus your Lord and Savior.”

a Whisper…from the Great I AM

guillaume-briard-776191-unsplash

“As the mountains reveal their glory so majestically in the sky, I have revealed my glory in the hearts of those who love me.

I AM Majesty.

I AM Creator.

I AM in all and part of all.

I AM in the sunshine.

I AM in the rain.

I AM found in calmness.

I AM revealed in storms.

Turn your spiritual eyes upon me and you will open them to my glory in everyday things. As your spirit becomes more sensitive to mine, the heavens will be opened to you in ways you’ve never seen before. Fix your gaze upon me to experience the beauty of my Holiness. Worship me for I am the only true God, and King of all.

Open your heart to me and to all that I have in store.  Do not allow yourself to become discouraged when you see the world trying to get rid of me. It is impossible. I laugh at the folly of it! Yet, my heart is saddened by rejection, as I love all my children. It is my desire to see everyone born into my family, so they will share in the blessing of eternity.

I call you to stand firm in faith. You need to love even when it hurts, and to minister to those who seek to deny and diminish the power of My Name.  My greatness can never be taken away. It is the devil who deceives and clouds the minds of unbelievers. Let not hate for those who hate me come into your heart lest you find yourself brought low for your own thoughts and actions.

There is a time to pray and stand firm, but not to act. I have eyes to see it all, and I will act as is fitting in my plan. The battles you are called to fight are often spiritual in nature, not physical.  When you see things that are wrong in your society, do not take for granted the power that is in you to pray. When people scoff at you because you pray and don’t act, shut your ears to them. Submit to me, resist the devil, and he must flee from you.

As you choose to resist the urge to fight back and remember that I am your source, I will keep you in perfect peace. My Spirit is always in touch with the pulse of the world. You can rest in me. You can place your hope in me.  You who love me have received a grace and comfort that is not of this world. I am coming back for my children one day. Prepare your hearts and be ready for no one knows the hour. Time is in the hands of your Maker, and I am He who holds the movement of the hands.

It is not necessary to be discouraged by the things happening in the world around you.  Look to me, the Hope of Glory, and let peace rule in your heart for I am near, very near, and nothing anyone can say or do will ever take my love from you.”

a Whisper…deliverance

Occasionally the mountains that you climb are not easy to get over; it may take years to reach the peak, and to arrive at the place where the glory of my Son shines so brightly that all else is washed away.

Today, I set you free from the past. Today, I open the heavens to let my Son shine upon your soul, restore your mind, and heal your heart. Today you are free and forgiven. Today all things become new.

Today you can live in the power of my love. Today the past will haunt you no more.  You are forgiven and free. Embrace me, embrace my love and know that I walk closely with you to guard you in all your ways. There will never be a time again in your life where you feel alone and lonely for I am always near.  I will always provide and make a way for you.

Let your tears be tears of joy and thankfulness for your Father has redeemed you!  I have given you a seat of honor in my Kingdom. You are blessed, and you are free.

Live in the freedom I have given you for my glory, as well as for your joy.  May it be so because of Jesus, my Son, who is in you; the one who loves you most of all.”

a Whisper…His plans

“My child, it moves my heart when you desire to include me in your day. I desire to be first in your life. Our relationship is a special treasure and pleasure.

When your days are long remember that my plans for you will always prevail. Rest, knowing that I have your life in my hands and that my plans are for good, to bless you and to help you be a blessing to others. All the work that I have done in you up to this point is for something greater that I am working out in you.

Where others have disappointed you, I will not. Where you have been hurt, I will heal and bless. Where you have been lonely, I will make relationships. You don’t have to worry about what to do or how to do this by yourself, for I am with you.

It is not my desire to bring you pain or frustration. It is my desire to build your confidence in me, and your oneness with me. You are learning to see that I am greater, that my ways are higher, and my purposes are right and true for you. Choose not to worry or fret about the things which are in my control for I am at work to bless and fulfill your life in ways that you cannot see yet.

I see you and I see your heart. I see your desire to fully trust in me. Your faith will be rewarded, and many blessings will come as you humbly trust in me.  Your first priority should always be to focus on me and the fact the I am all knowing, all seeing, and all-powerful to move, to act, and to make a way for you in this life, in the time I have ordained for you.

Live free in me, live confidently in me; live with joy in your heart for I, who am greater, am working to draw you near to me. I will make you stronger and provide all of your needs according to my glorious riches.  I long to reveal my plans and purposes for your life as you remain open to me, and in faithful trust understand that your life is hidden safely in me.

You are mine and I love you with perfect love, unlike no other. Live peacefully, take comfort in my presence with you today and always.  I am faithful, and what I say will come to pass.”

“But the plans of the Lord stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations”.   Psalms 33:11

 “Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.” Proverbs 19: 21

 “Set your minds on thing above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.” Colossians 3:2-3

a Whisper…silence

“Sometimes in the stillness of the morning it is good to just be quiet.  In quietness and trust is your strength.  I am in the wind. I am in the air you breathe. I am all around you. It is your choice to breathe me into your life, your actions, and decisions, but it all starts with an awareness of my presence in the silence around you.

Soak in the silence; bask in the glow of my presence; feel the light of my love as it pours over you. Receive my Spirit, abide in me, and know my great peace today.  I love you my child.”

Isaiah 30:15 “This is what the Sovereign Lord, the Holy One of Israel, says: “In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength…”

a Whisper…intentions

Sometimes things grow from the doing, not simply because you have a master plan. Remember, I am the Master, and I always have the plan.  You don’t have to fret about anything, just be open and willing. Do what you feel led to do, what is on your heart to do. I can bring something out of nothing and that something can be a beautiful work of art. I know this is what you desire so stay with me on your journey and we will accomplish it together.”

Psalm 20:4 – “May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed.” (NIV)

a Whisper…letting go

“When your focus is upon me, all the cares of your world find their place behind me. You can rest and find peace in my presence because I hold you in the palm of my hand.  Trust enables you to embrace dependency upon me. It frees you to experience the gift of my abundance when all is not quite as you’d like it to be.

I encourage you to let go of everything that is unimportant, those things that would hinder you from the freedom I’ve provided for you to live in.  Allowing your humanity, (emotional reactions of irritation, frustration, anger, humiliation, rejection, pride) to get in the way, makes it difficult to live above your circumstances.  Conversely, going against the grain of your humanity frees my Spirit to work in you to accomplish the greater purposes I have for you in those times.

Acknowledging me, in faithful obedience, will help you steer clear of little things the enemy uses to trip you up. Letting go of unimportant things enables you to see the good I desire to reveal in every situation. My way is always better, although in some instances, it may not be easier because it may be contrary to your feelings, and fleshly responses.

My Spirit searches your heart and examines your intentions. When your heart desires to do my will, my Spirit is released to provide the needs of the moment and you will receive the grace you need.

It is a difficult thing to teach yourself to respond to me first, rather than to your flesh. However, this is a goal I desire for all my children to obtain. It is the best way for you to live.

I desire that you be blessed beyond your flesh. This requires sensitivity to my Spirit, moment by moment, and day by day. Keep your focus upon me, and you will find me where you are. Abide in the blessing of my love for you are precious to me.”

Job 22:21 – “Submit to God and be at peace with him; in this way prosperity will come to you.”  (NIV)

 Philippians 3: 12-14 – “Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers and Sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” (NIV)

a Whisper…discouragement

“Breathe, my child, for it is a time to trust me to provide all that you need for this day.  I am your source. I am your strength and I will help you as you look to me for provision. Let my river of peace flow over you in this moment so that you can hear me and know my thoughts for you today.

Do not be discouraged as you are doing good in the world around you.  My Spirit is upon you to help you, to guide you, and to make a way for you to be effective for me.  Your smile is needed even when it seems like people don’t care. Rest in me; abide in me; be who I have made you to be.

When I place you somewhere there is always a greater purpose for what you do. When you don’t feel like you’re doing much, you can’t imagine what others are seeing by your presence, in your witness, in your behavior. You are a person of peace because you walk in peace with me, and I am your Lord.  I am personal to you.

People are hungry for peace; however, they have a hard time knowing where to find it. Many are simply afraid to look to me because they do not understand what it is to have faith in what they cannot see. You must pray for closed eyes to be opened, cold hearts to be made warm, and closed minds to be made soft.

When others offend you with their language or actions, pray. For it is the enemy of your soul at work trying not only to discourage the one who is speaking, but the one’s whose ears are sensitive to such things.  The enemy only has the power you give to him to discourage you.

Stand firm and remain strong in me. You can do this wherever you find yourself. You are capable of multi-tasking when you exercise your spiritual muscles. Nothing is impossible for you.  Be blessed today for I love you and I am near to you.”

“You are my strength, I sing praise to you; you, God, are my fortress, my God on whom I can rely.” Psalms 59:17 (NIV)

“The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave your nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” (NIV)
