My Delight

Delight Yourself in the Lord

Father always has something bigger and better in mind if you’ll walk toward what He loves, even if that means walking away from what you think you love. Here’s a promise: you’ll discover that you love what He loves far more than you loved what you walked away from.

Father gives you the desires of your heart as you delight yourself in Him – and sometimes that means He changes the desires of your heart to line up with His. So delight yourself in Him because He delights Himself in you. And be willing to let go of the good things for the best things He has planned for you.

I set my heart to delight in You. Change my heart’s desires to match Your heart’s desires. Give me the desires of Your heart so that You can give me the desires of my heart. I surrender to Your perfect will in my life.

First Thing First (FTF)

I Will Show You How to Prioritize

People will always want more from you than you have to give. They don’t understand that there are many standing in line with a want or need. Don’t let the demands frustrate you. Learn to recognize My grace on a thing, move in that grace, and trust Me to handle the rest.

You can’t please everyone all the time, so don’t try. Follow My lead. I will show you how to prioritize the demands, and I will provide the grace you need to meet them. All you must do is receive that grace. Don’t let people make you feel guilty that you cannot fulfill their desire.

Sometimes it feels as if everybody wants a piece of me – but I want to give myself more to You and Your will. Will You teach me to recognize Your grace to move out into service? Will You help me to set right priorities without fear of man?

No need to take cover

You Are Not Under Attack

Too often I hear you and others say, “I’m under attack” when the enemy is harassing you. That’s not a victory mind-set, and you should not go into battle declaring you are under attack. Beloved, the attack is under you.

The enemy is under your feet, and you are seated above him – in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. So change your perspective. Yes, the enemy may be attacking you, but you are not under his attacks – you are over them. Speak and act as if you believe that.

I repent for not standing in my authority in Christ when the enemy comes against my life. Thank You for reminding me who I am in Christ. Will You strengthen my heart and pour out a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him?

Come this way

Take the Pathway to Peace

Trust is the pathway to peace. For there is no fear where trust exists. Love breeds trust, and perfect love casts out all fear. Trust in Me with all your heart and lean not unto your understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Me, and I will direct your steps.

Trust Father to lead and guide you every step of the way into a broad place of blessing where you can come to know Him in a new way. He wants to encounter you today and every day. Trust that He is with you always, and look for His blessings.

I trust You, Lord. Help me trust You more. I choose to trust You with everything in me. Show me the places of my heart that I am holding back because of fear. I am determined to trust You with all that I am and all that I have. Help me.

I see differently

I Don’t See as Man Sees

I am El Shaddai. I don’t see the way man sees. I don’t think the way man thinks. I see over, above, and beyond the circumstances that try to weigh you down. So see Me as I am. I am the One who meets your needs, who nourishes your soul, who supplies your heart’s desires, who satisfies your hunger and thirst. I am the Lord of abundant blessings, and I will walk with you through the circumstances that try to weigh you down and take you over, above, and beyond where you thought you could go.

Thank You for being almighty in my life. Thank You for seeing my heart’s intentions even when I don’t live up to my own standards. Thank You for all of Your promises and all of Your blessings. Help me walk in the fullness of Your plan for me.

Real Love

I Love You Just the Way You Are

You don’t have to try to be someone you are not. I love you just the way you were created. Don’t compare yourself to anyone else. I have given you unique gifts and talents, and I have called you for such a time as this. If you allow frustration to flood your heart, you only hinder My grace. So reject comparisons. Reject frustrations. Reject striving. Embrace who you are now. Move forward as the person I’ve called you to be, and your unique gifts will make room for you.


You see into my heart in ways that I don’t see myself. Help me not to compare myself to others or give in to the frustrations of daily life. Help me to rest in You instead of striving. Show me how to do things Your way instead of my way.

I Know You

Your Weakness Does Not Disappoint Me

I know you feel weak on some days. Rejoice! My strength is made perfect in your weakness. Your weakness does not surprise Me or disappoint Me. I knew that you would not always win your inner battles with temptation when I wooed you into this relationship. You are a work in progress, but I see you as a masterpiece despite your failures. I see you as a winner! I see you through the eyes of love. I see you through the blood of Jesus. So call upon Me to strengthen you, and I will help you overcome your weaknesses.


I’m so glad that nothing can separate me from Your love. Strengthen me in my inner man so I can resist all the temptations of the evil one. And help me see myself the way You see me – complete in Christ.

Don’t Limit Me

I Can Do More Than You Can Imagine

Take the limits off. Do you realize that the power that raised Christ Jesus from the dead dwells in you? Do you know that I am able to do more – much, much more – for you than you can ever imagine? Do you know that I want to? Will you believe in Me the way I believe in you? Take the limits off! Dream with Me! Let your eyes see, your ears hear, and your heart dwell on what I have prepared for the one I love. Your best is yet to come. Only believe.


Your promises are glorious, and I want to walk in every one of them. I want to see things the way You see them. Reveal to me the things You have prepared for me in love. Stir my heart to follow You toward Your perfect will.

Pray for my SOUL

Look Ahead to Your Destiny

Don’t look back. I know it hurts. I know your wounds. I know your disappointments. I saw the betrayals. I saw the tears. I was with you through the pain, and I am here to make it right. I will work it all – the hurt, the disappointment, the betrayals – together for your good because you love Me and I love you. I will give you beauty for ashes. But you have to leave those ashes behind so I can resurrect with newness of life those things the enemy tried to steal, kill, and destroy. Remember Lot’s wife. Don’t look back. Your destiny is ahead, and I am leading you toward your dreams.


Thank You for Your healing power in my soul. Give me the strength to press beyond the past and toward my high calling in Christ. Show me how to make the divine exchange that will give me beauty for ashes, and I will glorify Your name.

Who Am I ?

Who Do You Say That I Am?

Jesus once asked His disciples, “Who do you say that I am?” Many people knew He was a great prophet, but only Peter received the revelation that He was the Christ, the Son of the living God. Now, I ask you, who do you say that I am? Many people disregard My work in their lives because they don’t understand who I am. And even those who know Me don’t always have a continual awareness of My presence and a deep revelation of My love for them. Who do you say that I am? Search My heart, and I will show you a new realm of My faithfulness, My kindness, and so much more. Search My heart.


Holy Spirit, I know what Jesus said about You, and I’ve read about You in Scripture, but I want to know You more and more – experientially. I want to experience who You are in a fresh way. Help me to search Your heart, and show me more about Yourself.
