The Bridegroom-King

Song Of Solomon 2:10-17

The one I love calls to me:

 

The Bridegroom-King

Arise, my dearest. Hurry, my darling.

Come away with me! 

I have come as you have asked

 to draw you to my heart and lead you out. 

For now is the time, my beautiful one.

The season has changed,
    the bondage of your barren winter has ended,
    and the season of hiding is over and gone.
    The rains have soaked the earth
 and left it bright with blossoming flowers.
    

The season for singing and pruning the vines has arrived.
    I hear the cooing of doves in our land,
    filling the air with songs to awaken you
    and guide you forth.
 Can you not discern this new day of destiny
    breaking forth around you?
    The early signs of my purposes and plans
    are bursting forth.
    The budding vines of new life
    are now blooming everywhere.
    The fragrance of their flowers whispers,
    “There is change in the air.”
    

Arise, my love, my beautiful companion,
    and run with me to the higher place.
    For now is the time to arise and come away with me.
For you are my dove, hidden in the split-open rock.
    It was I who took you and hid you up high
    in the secret stairway of the sky.
    

Let me see your radiant face and hear your sweet voice.
    How beautiful your eyes of worship
    and lovely your voice in prayer.

 You must catch the troubling foxes,
    those sly little foxes that hinder our relationship.
    For they raid our budding vineyard of love
    to ruin what I’ve planted within you.
    Will you catch them and remove them for me?
    We will do it together.

The Shulamite

 I know my lover is mine and I have everything in you,
    for we delight ourselves in each other.
 But until the day springs to life
    and the shifting shadows of fear disappear,
    turn around, my lover, and ascend
    to the holy mountains of separation without me.
    Until the new day fully dawns,
    run on ahead like the graceful gazelle
    and skip like the young stag
    over the mountains of separation.
    Go on ahead to the mountain of spices—
    I’ll come away another time.

Today the Lord is saying to you His Bride, the church–“will you come with me? Come with me into this NEW SEASON, this season of change and transition; and allow me to refresh you and prepare you to move with me. For the season of singing, is springing forth! I am bringing you to your place of purpose and destiny. Trust me in the process of the pruning; for I have kept you hidden in the cleft of the rock and protected you from the little foxes. Delight in me, separate yourself to me and come up with me to the mount of my presence; my radiant bride.”

Safe and Secure! Psalm 91 “The Passion”

“Remember whose you are.”

My little one, there is a hiding place you can find in Me. The shadow you see over you is the shadow of My wings. It is not a shadow of confusion, but a shadow of My hiding place where I will place you next to My heart. For I have taken you from troubled waters and brought you up on high to rest in My presence. No matter how dark the night and how fierce the trial, My kiss of mercy will keep and protect you.

No one says in My presence, “I am afraid.” It is never heard in My glory, “I am poor.” For I have given you all things that will strengthen your life and prepare you for eternity. In My presence all cry, “Glory.” Come into the shelter of My shadow, where all My lovers are washed, robed, crowned, and seated with Me. I care deeply for you, and nothing can disturb you in the hiding place of My glory. Come and rest with Me.

Psalm 91:1-4 The Passion Translation

When you sit enthroned under the shadow of Shaddai, you are hidden in the strength of God Most High. He’s the hope that holds me, and the Stronghold to shelter me, the only God for me, and my great Confidence. He will rescue you from every hidden trap of the enemy, and he will protect you from false accusation and any deadly curse. His massive arms are wrapped around you, protecting you. You can run under his covering of majesty and hide. His arms of faithfulness are a shield keeping you from harm.

God Hears Every Prayer!

What Is The Importance of Having A Prayer Life?

pexels-photo-186447.jpeg
PRAYER USHERS YOU INTO THE PRESENCE OF GOD 

 

JEREMIAH 29:12-13

Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. 

And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. 

 

You can experience The Presence of God:

*In God’s Presence is fullness of Joy! At His right hand are pleasures forevermore. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. He said, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, To all who call on Him in truth.*

 

The importance of having a prayer life: builds our faithfulness to prayer and helps us experience God’s love–in our life and in our world. Prayer opens up our spiritual eyes and ears to hear God’s voice. Prayer is a means of communication with God, it’s a responsibility and a privilege. Prayer brings God on the scene, where we can draw closer to Him through different types of prayers. Prayer is acknowledging our dependence upon Him and our gratefulness for His power in our life.

 

The purpose of living an active prayer life: It is God’s desire for us to live close to Him and have a deep, solid, unshakeable relationship with Him. The purpose of prayer is a means by which we deepen our relationship with God. A life of prayer allows you to be aligned with the Lord; by communicating with Him every day. The focus is not only on the praying though; Our focus must be on the One to whom we are praying.

2 Corinthians 6:18

“I will be a Father to you, And you shall be my sons and daughters,

Says the Lord Almighty.”

 

Pray God’s Word, Pray In Faith and Pray In Love: Why should we pray the Word? Joshua 1:8 says, “This book of the law shall not depart out of your mouth but you shall meditate in it day and night that you may observe to do all that is written in it.” Praying God’s word brings life to our bodies, gives us truth that will set us free, and brings peace to our minds. His word will lead and guide your path, and He will not cause you to stumble. His word is light–and will give you direction; when you pray.

One of my favorite scriptures is Psalm 119:165 which says, “Great peace have those who love Your word and nothing causes them to stumble.” The Passion Translation says it this way; “There is such a great peace and well-being that comes to the lovers of your Word, and they’ll never be offended.” That means so much to me! When a child of God; Believes and Trusts God and His Word–there is such GREAT PEACE! Love the Word–ALL of it; and you will not stumble or be offended by the word! We have to know God and establish a committed relationship with Him. It is important.

Pray and Declare Your faith: Speak the word, speak your faith, pray and believe! (Romans 4:20) Last but not least: Pray in Love: Let Love Abound! Be “filled with the fruits of righteousness.” What is that you wonder? It’s being filled with the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23). It’s allowing the character and heart of God to be cultivated in you; so when you pray, speak and love–you are doing it with God’s heart on the matter. God comes on the scene! You are not praying in your own understanding, or in your own natural ability–but; you are praying from an inner strength that comes from God.

Philippians 1:9-11 Passion Translation

I continue to pray for your love to grow and increase beyond measure, bringing you into the rich revelation of spiritual insight in all things. This will enable you to choose the most excellent way of all—becoming pure and without offense until the unveiling of Christ. And you will be filled completely with the fruits of righteousness that are found in Jesus, the Anointed Onebringing great praise and glory to God!

When you come to know who your Heavenly Father is; then you will better understand who you really are in Him. Establish a covenant–a relationship today with your Heavenly Father. Build a foundation of prayer, faith and love. Remember that your foundation of your entire relationship with God is that you are His son and daughter! [Matthew 7:7 says, “He gives good gifts to His children who LOVE and SEEK after Him and ASK of Him.] Become dependent on God for everything! Trust, rely and attach yourself to Him. Go to God for everything; go in prayer. Trust Him to provide your every need and know that “GOD HEARS YOUR EVERY PRAYER”! He is answering those prayers for you, because He loves you and is a GOOD GOOD FATHER. 

 

Declare Your Faith In God

Because of Christ I am free, and He whom the Son sets free is free indeed. 

I walk by faith and not by sight. I live by faith. I do not put my trust in man.

I do not put my trust in flesh. I put my trust in the Lord. 

I am responsible for the decisions and choices I make. I decide to choose life today!

I choose God’s blessings. I choose the Word of God.

I thank you Lord, that I am responsible for making my own way prosperous

and to have good success. My heart will never depart from You, Lord.

I will always serve You, God. Thank you Lord, for prospering my soul.

I will flourish and walk in divine favor and blessings upon my life; because of You!

Amen!

KNOW THAT GOD LOVES YOU & CARES FOR YOU DEEPLY! 

 

 

GOD IS A GOOD GOOD FATHER! BY: CHRIS TOMLIN 

 

 

BLESSED!

 

YOU HAVE ALL THAT YOU NEED!

IMG_4078

What is your perspective on life? Are you following a formula or are you allowing God’s plan to unfold in your life? Do you know that God has infinite resources for every individual? How do we access these resources? What does God’s word say about living an abundant life?

God’s Word never ceases. We have infinite resources in Him because we are being transformed by the truth of his word. In order to receive anything from God; it requires faith. If you want to live a Victorious, Blessed life, you will want to live by faith! God’s word is the SOURCE of God’s FAITH! Everything that God has for you is the BEST, and it’s always available to you–by speaking your faith. To access these infinite resources; you do it by accessing His word by faith. God is always ready–and you can receive your breakthrough and abundance now! Faith is in your mouth–the MIRACLE is in your mouth waiting to be RELEASED! Those words which you speak must be filled with faith. Speak your faith! Speak what God says about you! 

2 Peter 1:3 NIV

His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. 

God gives us everything we need because God gives us Himself. He doesn’t give you a formula to follow on how to be blessed. He gives you the resources that will transform your minds and hearts that you need; in order to live a Blessed, Abundant and Fruitful life. God gives each of us the Holy Spirit–the fruit of the Spirit; that will shape and cultivate our lives day by day. We are BLESSED because God makes a way for us to be equipped with everything we need.

 

The fruit of the Spirit—Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Self-Control. The Helper; the Holy Spirit develops these fruit in our lives.

We are blessed to be a Blessing!

IMG_3907

 

We as children of God; must dare to believe God’s Word. God wants His children Blessed: [Protected, Prosperous & Healed!] There are no limits with God! When you have all that you need from God; you can live free in the middle of captivity. You can live in constant victory; by developing a spirit of FAITH and persevere in that attitude of faith–even when going through any pressures that the devil may try to put on you. Even though you may go through tests and trials; when you activate and function with a spirit of faith–you will always receive the BLESSINGS of God and come out supernaturally every time. 

 

Colossians 2:10 Passion Translation

And our own completeness is found in Him.

We are completely filled with God as Christ’s fullness overflows within us.

He is the Head of every kingdom and authority in the universe! 

 

[The truth is; that “God has given us everything we need!”He has called us to Himself. We are complete in Him.]

Our completeness is found in Christ! We are BLESSED with all Spiritual Blessings!

We are Blessed in Christ! Jesus is our EVERYTHING!

 

 

Ephesians 1:3 Passion Translation

Every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realm has already been lavished upon us as a love gift from our wonderful heavenly Father, the Father of our Lord Jesus–all because he sees us wrapped into Christ. This is why we celebrate him with all our hearts! 

pexels-photo-302081.jpeg

 

Everything we need for an abundant life is found in Christ. It is found in his word; by walking in an attitude of faith, and keeping our perspective on the truth of God’s resources. When we believe the Word of God, we open the window of our life to give God an opportunity to move! God responds to our faith. So keep your eyes on the word and take God at His word. When you do that; you are taking a step of faith and releasing the blessings on your life. There is VICTORY in your faith! (Hebrews 11:1-6)

Psalm 23:1– 

The Lord is my Best Friend and my Shepherd. I always have more than enough.

 

 

2 Corinthians 9:8–

Yes, God is more than ready to overwhelm you with every form of grace, so that you will have more than enough of everything—every moment and in every way! He will make you overflow with abundance in every good thing you do.

Wednesday Word – “Wisdom From Above”

“TRUST GOD” ~ PUT YOUR TRUST IN THE LORD!

 

PROVERBS 3:1-26  PASSION TRANSLATION

The Rewards of Wisdom:  

1-2–My child, if you truly want a long and satisfying life, never forget the things that I’ve taught you. Follow closely every truth that I’ve given you. Then you will have a full, rewarding life.

3–Hold on to loyal love and don’t let go, and be faithful to all that you’ve been taught. Let your life be shaped by integrity, with truth written upon your heart.

4–That’s how you will find favor and understanding with both God and men–you will gain the reputation of living life well.

 

Wisdom’s Guidance:

5–Trust in the Lord completely, and do not rely on your own opinions. With all your heart rely on him to guide you, and he will lead you in every decision you make.

6–Become intimate with him in whatever you do, and he will lead you wherever you go. Don’t think for a moment that you know it all,

7–For wisdom comes when you adore him with undivided devotion and avoid everything that’s wrong—

8–For then you will find the healing refreshment your body and spirit long for.

9–Glorify God with all your wealth, honoring him with your best, with every increase that comes to you.

10–Then every dimension of your life will overflow with blessings from an  uncontainable source of inner joy!

 

Wisdom’s Correction:

11–My child, when the Lord God speaks to you, never take his word lightly, and never be upset when he corrects you.

12–For the Father’s discipline comes only from his passionate love and pleasure for you. Even when it seems like his correction is harsh, it’s still better than any father on earth gives to his child.

13–Those who find true wisdom obtain the tools for understanding, the proper way to live, for they will have a fountain of blessing pouring into their lives. To gain the riches of wisdom is far greater than gaining the wealth of the world. 

14–As wisdom increases, a great treasure is imparted, greater than many bars of refined gold.

15–It is a more valuable commodity than gold and gemstones, for there is nothing you desire that could compare to her!

16–Wisdom extends to you long life in one hand and wealth and promotion in the other. Out of her mouth flows righteousness, and her words release both law and mercy.

17–The ways of wisdom are sweet, always drawing you into the place of wholeness. 

18–Seeking for her brings the discovery of untold blessings, for she is the healing tree of life to those who taste her fruits. 

 

Wisdom’s Blueprints:

19–The Lord laid the earth’s foundations with wisdom’s blueprints. By his living-understanding all the universe came into being.

20–By his divine revelation he broke open the hidden fountains of the deep, bringing secret springs to the surface as the mist of the night dripped down from heaven. 

 

Wisdom, Our Hiding Place:

21–My child, never drift off course from these two goals for your life:

To walk in wisdom and to discover discernment . Don’t ever forget how they empower you.

22–For they strengthen you inside and out and inspire you to do what’s right; you will be energized and refreshed by the healing they bring.

23–They give you living hope to guide you, and not one of life’s tests will cause you to stumble.

24–You will sleep like a baby, safe and sound—your rest will be sweet and secure. 

25–You will not be subject to terror, for it will not terrify you. Nor will the disrespectful be able to push you aside,

26–Because God is your confidence in times of crisis, keeping your heart at rest in every situation.

 

My Prayer for you Today:

Is that you would search your innermost thoughts, heart and soul–to see where your “Trust” (dependency) is? God’s word is His wisdom. His word is life to all our flesh and bones. His word brings healing and refreshment, and His word draws us closer to Him. The Word of God is truth, and the truth will make you free today–all you need to do is accept it, believe it, receive it and take it at face value. His word is not too be taken lightly. God desires that we TRUST Him with everything! That means our heart–our soul–our Time–our Talent–and our Treasure (money). When your heart is fully Trusting in the Lord–you are proving that your FAITH is in God; and that He is your everything! 

 

Ask God for Wisdom, direction and discernment. Apply and Obey the Word given to you; in His blueprint that is laid out for you. Go to Him in Faith, and bring every decision, every desire, and every plan before Him. He will hear and answer you; when you call on Him. 

Jeremiah 33:3 The Message

‘Call to me and I will answer you. I’ll tell you marvelous and wondrous things that you could never figure out on your own.’

“Open Your heart to me, Father. I receive Your supernatural anointing for the spirit of wisdom to come into my life. I know that wisdom is pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits; Release your wisdom to me.” In Jesus Name, Amen—James 3:17
