Delight me in Your Word.


Open up Your Truths

So I can clearly see;

For my path is in Your hand.


Cause my feet to walk steady,

And in Your Word I’ll safely stand.”

He will make my feet like deer’s feet”

Prepared

“Nourish Up!

Revive me according to Your Word,”

Promised life,

Your best is yet reserved.”


“The Kingdom of heaven is like a certain king who arranged a marriage for his son and sent out his servants to call those who were invited to the wedding; and they were not willing to come.

“Again, he sent out other servants, saying, ‘Tell those who are invited, “See, I have prepared my dinner…and all things are ready.

Come to the wedding.”’

Matthew 22:1-4 NKJV


“Revive me according to Your word…

Revive me, O LORD, according to Your lovingkindness.”

Unto You

“Anoint my hand

In the things of You.

Protect my feet

As I walk it through.


Bless my thoughts with

Your Word Divine.

“Holy unto You”

According to

Your plans

Not mine.”


“A woman came to Him having an alabaster flask of very costly fragrant oil…” Matthew 26:7 NKJV

Warrior Word

Let the Bridegroom leave His room,

It’s Prophecy’s hour,

In Kingdom Power.

Unsheathe the sword,

You warrior word.

His Bride is here.

Relationship draws near.

Give their full yield.” Joel 2:22 ESV

And the Bride her chamber.” Joel 2:16 ESV

The Circle Dance

2020-12-30

Gilgal – The Circle Dance

It’s been a while since I picked up my Joshua journal, opening the book, thumbing through the pages finding today’s date – Day 30 – and the words penciled – Gilgal.

Gilgal – the circle dance.

Spinning back around to the Promises of God. Held back, often by ourselves or the people we travel with in life, from the Promises of God. –

What is my Gilgal?  What promises am I circling back around to today? Lord, I don’t believe it is by happenstance I reached for this book today. What are You speaking on this 30th day of this season?

“Command the priest who bear the ark of the Testimony to come up from the Jordan…and it came to pass, when the priest who bore the ark of the covenant of the LORD and come from the midst of the Jordan, and the soles of the priests’ feet touched the dry land, the waters of the Jordan returned to their place and overflowed all its banks as before….and they camped in Gilgal.” Joshua Chapter 4:14-20 NKJV

Gilgal – The place where the priest, (a shadow of you and me) the place where the priest feet stood firm (trusting in God) in the crossing of the Jordan, (into the Promise Land) bearing the Ark of the Covenant, (His Word tucked into our spirit, soul, and mind) to come up out of this year stepping into all the good promises found in His Word and encamp there (staying in the Word, circling back around time and time again to His faithful promises) in the coming new year.

The circle dance of Gilgal.

“The Grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit, Amen.” Galatians 6:18 NKJV

“Praise the Lord!

Sing to the LORD a new song…

Praise His name with dancing…

For the Lord delights in His people.”

Psalm 149:1-4 NLT

Release the Fragrance!

“Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.” 2 Corinthians 2:14 NKJV
