Stand

trust God moon

From The Heart of Abba

Beloved,
STAND firm
In My Love
My Provision
My Protection.

That sort of standing
Is different than standing on your own two feet.

It is a LEANING all that is “you” in/on all that is “Me”

It is a running into the shelter of My Presence with you.

Remember I am always PRESENT with/to/in you
and where I am there is freedom.

Freedom from fear,
Freedom to “be” who I created you to be.
Freedom to live and move and have your very being in Me.

So Stand and continue to stand.
You are firmly and safely held secure
In My love.

(Kind of like the moon is firmly and securely set in the sky.)

Ephesians 6:12-18 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this [present] darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) places. 13 Therefore, put on the complete armor of God, so that you will be able to [successfully] resist andstand your ground in the evil day [of danger], and having done everything [that the crisis demands], to stand firm [in your place, fully prepared, immovable, victorious]. 14 So stand firm and hold your ground, having tightened the wide band of truth (personal integrity, moral courage) around your waist and having put on the breastplate of righteousness (an upright heart), 15 and having strapped on your feet the gospel of peace in preparation [to face the enemy with firm-footed stability and the readiness produced by the good news]. 16 Above all, lift up the [protective] shield of faith with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. 18 With all prayer and petition pray [with specific requests] at all times [on every occasion and in every season] in the Spirit, and with this in view, stay alert with all perseverance and petition [interceding in prayer] for all God’s people

When Your Heart Screams, “I Can’t”

psalm 61-2

My heart screams, “I can’t”
My emotions swirl.
My mind does not know or understand.
 
And yet,
Deeper than any of that,
I know,
Emmanuel is and will be
With me.
 
Life IS too much at times.
No!
A certain situation is too much,
All the time.
 
But we all will have those times,
The Instruction Book,
Tells us what to do.
Call on the LORD.
 
He, Who hears our heart’s cry,
Even when we have no words,
Hears and comes with healing,
Comfort,
Love and
Presence.
 
Psalm 18:6 In my distress I called upon the LORD; to my God I cried for help. From his temple he heard my voice, and my cry to him reached his ears.
Isaiah 65:24 Before they call I will answer; while they are yet speaking I will hear.
Psalm 61:2 From the end of the earth I call to You when my heart is faint; Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

When Life Is Too Hard

zech 4-6b

From the Heart of Abba
In response to, “It’s too hard for me”.
 
It is too hard for you.
And you don’t know how,
That is true,
But it is not too hard for Me.
And I do know what to do.
 
When you call out to Me,
I hear.
I come.
I enable you,
To draw near to Me.
 
In Me, you can do all things.
Even this.
The night does come,
But so does the day.
 
I am the LORD,
As well as your Comfort,
In the night and the day.

Elohim, Creator God LOVES You

From The Heart of Abba Today:

Beloved,
You ARE mine.
I do LOVE you with an everlasting, unending, unconditional love.

Lean on Me,
Crawl in My lap,
Look for Me and
Look to Me.

As you live in that manner,
You will have all you need,
In every next moment of life.

Remember I AM is present in EVERY MOMENT, past present and future.
And I AM has all you need in each and every moment.
No matter what.
I am Elohim, Creator and nothing is impossible for Me.
When the Psalmist cried out:
“CREATE in me a pure heart, Oh God, and renew a steadfast spirit”,
He was speaking from his heart to the heart of Elohim (Creator).

Beloved, when life is too much, that is what I invite you to do also.
Call out to Me, the One who created you and I WILL hear and answer..

Psalm 51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a right and steadfast spirit within me.

1 John 5:14 This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.

Hope

hope1

From The Heart of Abba Today

Hope is found in relationship.

Hope comes forth, 
When the agony of genuine need,
Meets the hand of and the love of God.

When you come a place of,
Admitting what is wrong,
What you need and,

Then accept the truth,

That I AM is working ALL things,
For your good,
Hope arises.

That is not hope,
In a specified outcome,
designed by you.
It is the sure hope,
Which is not really even hope but fact,
That I AM is going to both walk with you,
Walk you through whatever it is and,
Provide for your real needs,
In a way that brings joy and MORE hope.

Hope is KNOWING,

That you are safe,
Not just eternally but,
In every next moment of life.

Isaiah 49:23b amp And you shall know [with an understanding based on personal experience] that I am the Lord; For they shall not be put to shame who wait and hope expectantly for Me.

Psalm 62:5 For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from him.

Psalm 25:1-2 &4-7 NKJV
To You, O Lord, I lift up my soul.
2 O my God, I trust in You;
Let me not be ashamed;
Let not my enemies triumph over me.

4 Show me Your ways, O Lord;
Teach me Your paths.
5 Lead me in Your truth and teach me,
For You are the God of my salvation;
On You I wait all the day.

6 Remember, O Lord, Your tender mercies and Your lovingkindnesses,
For they are from of old.
7 Do not remember the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions;
According to Your mercy remember me,
For Your goodness’ sake, O Lord.

Trust = Rest + Peace

trust=rest+peace

From the Heart of Abba Today

Beloved, can you choose REST again today?
Just for today?

Rest is a state of trusting Me.

When your heart is secure in My Love,
Then rest is possible.

There is no need to worry about the next moments of life.
Because each next moment there will be enough grace available.

I AM is with you,
In EVERY next moment.
When you remember that,
Trust that,
Then each moment can be a moment of rest.
Resting and trusting in My provision
As well the fact,
That I truly am both your Immanuel, your Shalom and your El Shaddai.

This is a photo from the pier at Jax Beach. It was overall a dreary day, but if you look, you see the sun is still there. Look again at the clouds. Yes, there are lots of clouds, but there is also a whole lot of beauty to be seen.
Proberbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and do not lean on your own understanding.
6 In all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make straight your paths.

Lamentations 3:22-24
The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. “The LORD is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.”

Steadfast

11
Our Prayer:
May the Lord help us be:
Steadfast in hope.
Steadfast in trust.
Steadfast in love.
Steadfast in joy.
Steadfast in leaning and relying on God.
Steadfast in RECEIVING HIS LOVE.
Steadfast in knowing that we are HIS BELOVED.
No matter what.

His Response:
Be steadfast in accepting your imperfections.

Beloved, no one can ever do life perfectly.

But you can choose to invite Me into the imperfect.

Invite Me into the broken-not-yet-fully-mended places of your heart.

It is true that out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.
Each time your mouth speaks, or your heart cries contrary to the Word of God, invite Me into that place.

I WILL come, to touch, to heal and to restore.
Each time, every time, you spend time with Me,
Especially when your imperfection has shown itself,
You will leave the time refreshed and able to go forth yet again.

This is a good year to walk with Me. Remember I AM is EMMANUEL.

Our Hope Every Day

merrychristmas

From the Heart of Abba
Beloved, there is a hope that lead to JOY. On the first “Christmas”, I came to earth as THE Hope of ALL nations.

I AM HOPE and JOY and PEACE and LOVE. My name was foretold to be Emmanuel.

Before the beginning of time, I was destined to come to earth, to walk among you as Emmanuel. Once you come to Me in new birth, I literally take up residence within your heart and am Emmanuel, God With You in a different sense.

There is no trial that is devoid of My presence with you. You may not be aware that I am with you but that does not change the fact.

There is nothing, not one thing, that can separate you from My love. I created you in love, for love, because I loved you. Nothing ever changes that fact. Before time began I planned for you with LOVE.

As you learn by trusting Me. to trust Me and to place your hope in the fact that I am Emmanuel and will never leave you nor forsake you, you will be able to know both PEACE and JOY no matter what is going on.

One definition of JOY is knowing someone is glad to be with you no matter what.
I AM EMMANUEL and I am GLAD to be with you even on your worse day.

You will know both PEACE and JOY when your heart remembers that EMMANUEL, who is aka LOVE is also PEACE and JOY.

Hope of ALL the Nations: Matthew 12:21
KJV And in his name shall the Gentiles trust.
Berean Study Bible. In His name the nations will put their hope.” ESV and in his name the Gentiles will hope.”
NIV In his name the nations will put their hope.”

Emmanuel or Immanuel: Matthew 1:23 & Isaiah 7:14 “Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel” (which means, God with us).
Isaiah 7:14 Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.

Our hope: 1 timothy 1:1 Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by command of God our Savior and of Christ Jesus our hope,

Our Joy: John 15:11 These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.

Our Peace: Isaiah 9:6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

He loved us first: 1 john 1:10 & Ephesians 1:3-5In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
Eph 1:3-5 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him. In love He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will…

God dwells in us: 1 Cor 3:16 Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you?

Nothing separates us from his love: Romans 8:38-39 38 For I am persuaded beyond doubt (am sure) that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor things impending and threatening nor things to come, nor powers, Nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
