Draw Upon My Spirit of Counsel

“Faithful Victory” – by Meghan Williams, Dyed4you Art

Isaiah 11:2 (VOICE) And on this child from David’s line, the Spirit of the Eternal One will alight and rest. By the Spirit of wisdom and discernment He will shine like the dew. By the Spirit of counsel and strength He will judge fairly and act courageously. By the Spirit of knowledge and reverence of the Eternal One….

Beloved, victory is always in your hands because I am always with you. As a carrier of My Presence, I have sent you into this world to accomplish My Kingdom purposes. And those whom I send, I abundantly equip that they may succeed.

I have imparted My Spirit of Counsel to you. Just as a king would seek wise advice before waging war, I encourage you to make every effort to seek My voice in the moments you need strategy. My Spirit of Counsel is gentle and supportive, like the presence of a trusted friend. Just as you would not have an important conversation in the midst of a crowd, so you will need to draw aside into the secret place in order to draw upon My Spirit within you.

Remember, I do not expect you to walk out your commission alone. Indeed, I am here to support you. I have already ordained the provision you need for every stage of My plans for you. Therefore, lean upon Me. Walk with Me. We will accomplish much more together than you could ever do alone.

Proverbs 20:18 (ESV) Plans are established by counsel; by wise guidance wage war.

1 Samuel 18:14 (AMPC)  David acted wisely in all his ways and succeeded, and the Lord was with him.

Explore With Me

Isaiah 45:3 (VOICE) I will give you hidden treasures and wealth tucked away in secret places; I will reveal them to you. Then you will know that I am the Eternal, the God of Israel, who calls you by name.

Beloved, I have so much more for you – things below the surface, outside your immediate natural understanding – will you go deep with Me? Will you allow Me to give you revelation? Will you choose to take the time – make the time – for us to be together?

Seek Me as you would immeasurable riches, for I AM more worthy and considerably more satisfying than such. Explore with Me. Together let us plumb the depths of My mysteries that I may share with you and teach you as I have promised.

Proverbs 3:13-15 (ESV) Blessed is the one who finds wisdom, and the one who gets understanding, for the gain from her is better than gain from silver and her profit better than gold. She is more precious than jewels, and nothing you desire can compare with her.

Follow the Beat of My Heart

1 John 4:18 (TPT) Love never brings fear, for fear is always related to punishment. But love’s perfection drives the fear of punishment far from our hearts. Whoever walks constantly afraid of punishment has not reached love’s perfection.
 

Beloved, be led by the sound of the beat of My heart. Resist the call of the world, which seeks to guide you through fear, guilt, and shame. You are My delight, and I created you for relationship with Me. Knowing Me is about so much more than a list of do’s and don’ts. It’s about more than work, projects, deadlines, and commissions.

Although I have placed purpose within you, your work in this world is still an avenue for your personal connection with Me. I have ordained that each day and every experience would provide you with opportunities to explore the depth of My heart. When you give in to the fear that you are performing wrong or disappointing Me, it creates unnecessary walls of separation between us. Remember: I desire to work with you, in you, and through you. Release the desire to determine what this journey must look like, for My plans for you cannot remain in the box of your understanding. Allow Me to lead and let us move together, always together, beloved.

Therefore, cease from striving and worrying. Fear not, for you do not have to go it alone. Take My hand, and let me lead you in this wondrous dance called life. Lay your head upon My chest, bask in the songs I’m singing over you, and let your feet be moved by their melody. Allow My Presence to intertwine with every area of your life. As you yield to My constant leading, joy, peace, hope will overflow.

Psalm 46:10 (NASB) “Cease striving and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”

Wings of Faith

Matthew 14:27-29 (AMPC) But instantly He spoke to them, saying, Take courage! I Am! Stop being afraid! And Peter answered Him, Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water. He said, Come! So Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water, and he came toward Jesus.

My child, remember that courage is not the absence of fear. Courage is the choice you make to move in accordance with My guiding in spite of your fears. Do not fret if your heart still trembles as you take bold steps in the direction I call you. Like a muscle that becomes strengthened through constant resistance training, so your confidence will be built through repeated resistance of fear. Fear will lose its hold as you repeatedly make the choice to trust Me.

Remember, I do not call you out of familiar territory to expose your weaknesses. I am not setting you up to fail or waiting to embarrass you. On the contrary, I desire to bring forth My character and power in you. Just as some young birds do not know they can fly until their mother coaxes them to leave the nest, you too must learn of the inherent power in your wings of faith. As my child, you were created to accomplish more than you can ever comprehend. Simply let go and believe that, as your Father, I know what is best. As you learn to use your wings of faith, trust that I will not let you fall. For in My hands you will always be safe.

Deuteronomy 31:6 (AMPC) Be strong, courageous, and firm; fear not nor be in terror before them, for it is the Lord your God Who goes with you; He will not fail you or forsake you.

Have Faith in My Path

Jeremiah 29:11 (NLT) For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.

When I set you on a path, beloved, remember that I am there with you to see My plans through. All that is required on your part is to walk in the power of your faith in Me. At times, you may find the journey to be difficult because you cannot see all the details of My plan. I have given you the destination, yet I alone know all the twists and turns in your journey. Walk along this course being certain that you will see My goodness. I urge you to yield your expectations over the details to Me. Instead, adopt an attitude of childlike wonder over this adventure. By doing so, you will be able to maintain your peace and security in Me.

I have not made this path needlessly complex; I have designed it with your good in mind. This path is encouraging spiritual growth within you that you do not yet see. For as you rely upon Me to take every step, I draw out the gifts of the Spirit I have placed within you. I desire to get you to your destination well-equipped for all I have in store for you.

When you feel uncertain or discouraged along this journey, pause and remind yourself that I have already ordained that you will succeed. I have commanded the blessing upon your life so that you will prosper wherever I send you. The words I have spoken over your life will not return to Me void; they will accomplish all I desire. And you too, beloved, will succeed in walking this path as I empower you by My Spirit.

Isaiah 55:11 (NLT) It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it.

Philippians 4:13 (AMPC) I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency].

The Beauty in You

“Priceless Beauty” – by Elisa Eaton

Song of Songs 4:1 (TPT) Listen, my dearest darling, you are so beautiful—you are beauty itself to me! Your eyes glisten with love, like gentle doves behind your veil. What devotion I see each time I gaze upon you. You are like a sacrifice ready to be offered.

My Bride, as much as possible, choose to see yourself the way that I see you. Let the words you speak and think towards yourself align with what I would say and think of you. I am not ashamed, disgusted, or displeased with you. You are My precious creation, in whom I find much delight. 

I tell you, even in your shortcomings and failings, there is beauty. Yes, the gravity of the world pulls at you. And yet I see your efforts and celebrate your successes as you choose My ways over the ways of the world. Even in your weakness, your desire is for Me and My Word. This pleases Me so!

I am patient and long-suffering, beloved. Like a potter with clay, I know well what it takes to mold you and bring out the beauty I see within you. I am not afraid or ashamed of the process you must go through. Therefore, neither should you be.

My covenant of grace is ever extended to you. Therefore, receive it. Receive all that I have for you, for you are forgiven and I have commanded the blessing over your life. Choose to believe the words I speak over you and trust that I tell you no lie. Hold tightly to the vision I have imparted to you of who you are becoming in Me. Keep it in mind and let it be your mirror. Keep your heart open, for I will always reflect back to you the beauty I see in you.

Isaiah 54:9-10 (NLT) “Just as I swore in the time of Noah that I would never again let a flood cover the earth, so now I swear that I will never again be angry and punish you. For the mountains may move and the hills disappear, but even then my faithful love for you will remain. My covenant of blessing will never be broken,” says the Lord, who has mercy on you.

Ephesians 2:10 (NLT) For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.

Yield to My Love

Romans 8:1, 2 (TPT) So now the case is closed. There remains no accusing voice of condemnation against those who are joined in life-union with Jesus, the Anointed One. For the “law” of the Spirit of life flowing through the anointing of Jesus has liberated us from the “law” of sin and death. 

Beloved, be vigilant in keeping the door closed to condemnation. Resist even the seemingly small thoughts that are not aligned with My thoughts towards you, those that would cause you to wear the old garb of guilt and shame. The price has been fully paid for your redemption. By the blood of the Lamb, you are forgiven and the way has been made for you to walk in freedom and deliverance.

Godly love makes no record of wrongs. Therefore, atonement is available for your past, present, and future sins. My grace towards you abounds more and more. My grace is the blessing that overtakes you and sweeps you into My Presence. 

Therefore, beloved, be swept away. Let My love carry you into My throne room. You have eternal access to Me and I desire that you would be fully present with Me. Every piece of your soul belongs with Me and is deeply treasured. Let fear of punishment and shame hold you back no longer. Let go and boldly yield to My love.

Allow My Love to Lift You

“Currents of His Love {Air}” – by Meghan Williams, Dyed4you Art

2 Corinthians 12:9 (TPT) But he answered me, “My grace is always more than enough for you, and my power finds its full expression through your weakness.” So I will celebrate my weaknesses, for when I’m weak I sense more deeply the mighty power of Christ living in me.

Beloved child, you know well that I am the source and giver of your life. Your life-path is designed to be challenging so that you will continually prosper in new levels of spiritual maturity. However, your life was never meant to be burdensome. Yes, as you are faithful with the little I will entrust you with more. And with each spiritual increase, the expansion that I set before you may seem overwhelming and, at times, far outside of your power to handle. However, I never give you more than you can handle when you are willing to draw upon the strength provided by My Spirit.

You were not made to walk this life alone, forced to draw upon the resources of the fleshly and natural realm. You are born of the Spirit, and, as My child, I delight to give you everything you need. Therefore, come, beloved, abide fully in My grace. Resist the urge to let pride keep you in a state of independence. Instead, open your heart to receiving the help that you need. I will not make you feel ashamed in your weakness; indeed, I delight to lift you up and empower you so that you might flourish!

Therefore, trust My Spirit-wind to lift you and provide the support and strength beneath your wings of faith. I am faithful to carry you everywhere you need to go, and I will surely equip you for the great work I have called you to. Remain in life-union with Me, beloved, and allow My love to lift you.

Numbers 6:24-26 (AMPC) The Lord bless you and watch, guard, and keep you; The Lord make His face to shine upon and enlighten you and be gracious (kind, merciful, and giving favor) to you; The Lord lift up His [approving] countenance upon you and give you peace (tranquility of heart and life continually).

John 14:16-18  (NKJV) And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.

 

The Desert is in Bloom

Ecclesiastes 3:11 (NKJV) He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end.

There is beauty and life blossoming within you, beloved, you just have to look for it. I know the state of your life has seemed so dry and barren for so long. But the past is the past and a glorious future is now upon you.

Know that the arid conditions of your wilderness have only caused you to cry out all the more for the abundant reign of My Presence in your life. You are not forsaken nor are you desolate, for you have responded to My passionate overtures with a blossoming passion of your own. In the midst of the wilderness, you have found your delight in Me. You have stretched your roots out and have indeed found the water and source of all life.

Yes, it is an enigma, how I bring beauty from ashes and death to life. Remember, how I formed man in My image and likeness out of the dust of the earth and how I breathed My Spirit upon him so he should live. Remember, how I breathed over the dry bones to bring the dead back to life. Nothing is too hard for Me. Now, I breathe over you, beloved, unleashing My Spirit of Life in abundant measure.

Look with My eyes now and see how you are blossoming. I make all things beautiful in their time, and all of heaven knows that now is your time to shine as My Bride. Know certainly that I long for you just as much as you long for Me. As a bridegroom waits with joy for his bride, so I wait with joyous expectation for our union. I am counting the moments until all will see that I Am yours and you are Mine!

Isaiah 62:4-5 (VOICE) People won’t talk about you anymore using words like “forsaken” or “empty.” Instead, you will be called “My delight” and the land around you “Married,” because the Eternal is pleased with you and has bound Himself to your land. As a young man marries the woman he loves, so your sons will marry you, Jerusalem. As a groom takes joy in his bride, so your God will take joy in you.

The Joy of Eternal Life

Psalm 16:11 (NKJV) You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

Beloved, know that I have given you fullness of joy because I have granted you complete access to My Presence. Resist the urge to become discouraged when the earthly realm shifts your focus and you feel out of alignment with Me. Simply stop, take a breath, and seek Me. Look to the Cross and remember that the way has been paved back into the Garden of My Presence. Your old life is gone and I have made you new. The newness of life that you now have is eternal and lived by faith, and daily I call you to discover what that means.

There is grace upon grace upon grace as you learn how to remain in the flow of abundant life. As much as possible, resist feeling pressured or rushed by the earthly realm. While the world, at times, may seem to be overpowering, it is I, your God, that holds power over all. Victory is not waiting for you in some distant future; victory is available now through My Spirit.

Now is the time to come into My rest. Simply learn to “be” in Me. I created you for freedom, therefore, feel free to live, and move, and have your being in Me. You exist that I might delight in you and that you might delight in Me. Holy pleasure is found as you cease from striving and remain at rest and life-union with your Creator.

Therefore, I say, take of the fruit of the tree of life—My Word. My Word holds the answer to every question you have, it is the antidote to whatever ails you, it is your vision and wisdom, and it contains all of the promises I have given to you. By partaking of My Word—My very nature—your inner life is renewed daily. As your thoughts and perspective become as My own, the uncontainable joy of life will come bursting forth from within you.

John 10:10 (VOICE) The thief approaches with malicious intent, looking to steal, slaughter, and destroy; I came to give life with joy and abundance.

John 4:14 (NLT) But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again. It becomes a fresh, bubbling spring within them, giving them eternal life.”
