June 27

Do you ever wonder where I really am? Being omnipresent, I am everywhere. The only thing I want you to understand about that is that I am always with you, My chosen child.

Does it bother you that I say you are chosen? Since before the creation of the world, I knew of you and chose you to be My own. No matter your background, or even if your mother or father made you feel unloved or unwanted, I planned you. I made you. I CHOSE YOU to be Mine, to walk with Me, to be My beloved child.

Yes, you will fall. And no, you will never, ever be deserving, but it doesn’t matter because Christ paid the cost for our relationship.

Oh, the pain of those days! The pain of seeing Him Who rules with Me going through such agony and pain at the hands of those We loved. Days pass much faster for Me than for you, but those days passed SO slowly….But such joy when it was over! Now the world can know of the victory We have over the devil!

So come close, dear chosen one. You are dearly loved. I could not have paid for you with anything more precious to Me than My dear Son, Jesus Christ.

Come near. You are deeply loved.

Ephesians 3:17 TPT:

“Then, by constantly using your faith, the life of Christ will be released deep inside you, and the resting place of his love will become the very source and root of your life.”

June 26

In the stillness of the morning, you sense My presence more. Some people stay up very late and don’t take the time in the morning to commune with Me. They are missing so much!

Starting the day with Me is allowing Me to protect you when I cover you with My armor of righteousness.  

Wear it proudly. Feel it’s weight. Know it is My love that has “cocooned” you.

I am smiling because there is joy in our communion. Such joy when you come to Me fresh out of bed!  

Fall on your knees and wait until My presence settles over you. There you are at the threshold of the kingdom of God, kneeling at My throne. 

I hear your prayers, dear one, for I am right beside you. Such reverence is precious to Me.  Pour out your heart and your soul, for the King of the universe hears and will answer your prayers.

Then rise up, and get ready for the day. Because you have given Me permission to cover you with the protection of My love, all things are possible, if you will but believe.

Ephesians 6:13 TPT:

“You must wear all the armor that God provides so you’re protected as you confront the slanderer, for you are destined for all things and will rise victorious.”

June 25

You are here with Me now, dear one, and nothing is more precious to Me. Reach out and touch My hand. I am that close.

Today will be a day of victories for you; victories you may not see yet, but in your walk with Me, they happen.

Behind the scenes the real battles are going on as evil pulls and pushes at you. But if you put on My breastplate of righteousness in the morning, I arm you with the protection against it.

Someday you will know. I will tell you of the fascinating things that you could not see through your earthly eyes. The battles are real, dear one, and I long to protect you with My armor. The evil everywhere cannot touch you when you wear it.

When you first arise, come to Me and but ask for it. I will surround you with the protection.

Let Me take care of you, for you are so precious to Me.

Deuteronomy 20:3-4 NKJV:

“Today you are on the verge of battle with your enemies. Do not let your heart faint, do not be afraid, and do not tremble or be terrified because of them; for the Lord your God is He who goes with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.’”

June 24

I long to speak to you in the quiet moments. Did you leave the busyness of your life yesterday to come apart and commune with Me? You would have drawn so much strength from it if you did. 

Today, put one foot in front of the other and just plow ahead. I have a special task for you that only you will know of. If you allow Me to guide you, I can fulfill a ministry in you just by your daily walk. Others will be blessed.

So much I want to tell you is in My written Word. The Bible is your guide to live a complete life with Me. Stories of how I led the Israelites, of how I led Paul, and personal promises to you of how I will lead you.  

These are hints of the closeness I long to have with you.

Carry it with you when possible to read words directly from Me to you. Let it warm your very being.

Then, close your eyes and think of Me, for the very same God of the Bible is right beside you, longing to love you.

Just put one foot in front of the other. This will be a great day!!

Hebrews 13:20-21 TPT:

“Now may the God who brought us peace by raising from the dead our Lord Jesus Christ so that He would be the Great Shepherd of His flock; and by the power of the blood of the eternal covenant may He work perfection into every part of you giving you all that you need to fulfill your destiny. And may He express through you all that is excellent and pleasing to Him through your life-union with Jesus the Anointed One who is to receive all glory forever! Amen!”

June 23

Good morning, dear child. Today is a day of new possibilities. Close your eyes and be filled with My joy, for I am right here beside you.

Oh, the love I have for you, the joy I long to share with you! Fill yourself up with My presence and we will face the world together.

This world is in such turmoil, but you needn’t be. I have given you the promise of My abiding care and guidance. This should allow you to face even the grimmest predictions and problems with peace. The “peace that passes all understanding.”

Let others be amazed at the peacefulness of your countenance during such times. You have the Holy One on your side. What possibly can you fear?

So, gather yourself together this morning, wrapped up in the knowledge of My love, and face today with your head held high. I will be beside you all the way!

“Don’t be pulled in different directions or worried about a thing. Be saturated in prayer throughout each day, offering your faith-filled requests before God with overflowing gratitude. Tell Him every detail of your life, then God’s wonderful peace that transcends human understanding, will guard your heart and mind through Jesus Christ.”

Philippians 4:6-7 TPT

June 22

Do you ever wonder why there is so much pain and suffering in the world? Do you think about how a God who loves so much allows it?

Oh, child, the pain to Me is worse than the pain you see and feel.

Only through pain will people come to realize that this earth is not their home. This earth and the life on it that they think they like so much is but a drop in the hat of what I have in store for them if they would just look to Me.

In their pain, I long for them to reach out to Me, to see life as deeper than their day-to-day trials.  

One day it will be different. The pain and suffering will be wiped away. Pain and evil will be gone and we will live forever in peace and joy.

Choose righteousness, child. Amid everything, choose righteousness and peace. I am at the heart of it all.  

“Joy cometh in the morning.” You will see. I will lead you through it.

No matter how much pain you are going through, don’t let go of My hand. I will lead you like a shepherd through the dark valleys and high mountains. Don’t look down or let go.  Joy is ahead.  

You see just a glimmer now, but soon it will surround you with bursts of light. Oh, how I look forward to that moment!  

Don’t let go.

Psalms 30:5 TPT:

“I’ve learned that His anger lasts for a moment, but His loving favor lasts a lifetime! We may weep through the night, but at daybreak it will turn into shouts of ecstatic joy.”

June 21

I am really here with you now. You are learning to sense My presence. The world seems far away as you read this.  

I am surrounding you with My armor, protecting you, and our time together.  

You and Me. Me and You.Together we can do this.

Since before the foundation of the earth, I knew about you, and planned for you….when you would come, and where you and your family and friends would live.

I love you with an everlasting love. There is no one more special to Me than you. Let My love and comfort surround you today.  

We are together: You and Me, Me and you.

Psalms 16:8 TPT:

“Because I set you, Yahweh, always close to me, my confidence will never be weakened, for I experience Your wraparound presence every moment.”

June 20

Child, I am here with you now. Close your eyes and feel My presence. Draw My closeness in with every breath. 

During the day, find a quiet room and do this. These moments with Me will give you the strength you need to carry through.

When you feel tempted to draw away from Me by the busyness of life, come back to your quiet place, and close your eyes and draw Me in with every breath.

Today will be a wonderful day for us. Face it with courage and joy. The little things in your life need to be done with as much fervor as the big things, as I have appointed them all to you.  

Keep your eyes focused on the dream I have given you. With Me beside you, we can accomplish it, even when others say we can’t.

There are no “no’s” in My world. The vision I gave you is the vision I will give you the strength and knowledge to fulfill. Seek only to do My will and we will accomplish it.

And when you feel like you’ve reached your limit and can’t go further? Find that quiet place again, close your eyes, and breath Me in. I will surround you with My love and strength.

Proverbs 16:3 NKJV:

“Commit your works to the Lord, and your thoughts will be established.”

June 19

How do you face the profound sadness of some days? By keeping your mind focused on Me. 

I am oh so aware of the pain and confusion you feel, the not understanding of why some things happen.

It is hard to make you understand while you are in this world. Just know that someday you will know and see things the way I do. Use this time to let Me fold you into My arms and hold you closely. 

Close your eyes and put your head against My chest. I long to hold you like this until your pain subsides.

When the pain comes back, return to My embrace, drawing strength from My nearness and absolute love for you.

I understand the suffering you are going through, more than you will ever know. When I walked the earth, I loved those around Me, yet My love was rejected, My words and actions were criticized, and I was abandoned and horribly murdered. Yet, when I rose again, I was able to show love in the face of it all.

The One that has been through it all is here with you now, wanting to love you with an everlasting love. Let Me draw you into My arms so you may feel the strength of it and be able to face another day here.

Take heart. I am here, and I will come again. 

Just for now, rest in My embrace.

Isaiah 41:10 NKJV:

“Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you. I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’”

June 18

You are scared this morning? Don’t you know I am with you? Close your eyes and sense My presence. Feel My peace drop over you like a blanket.

Today is a sacred day between you and I. It will be the day you remember that I walked with you. 

You can make it happen. We can be that close. Others crowd around but it is My relationship with you that keeps you focused.

I am the Master of the universe, Maker of Heaven and Earth. Where would you be but for Me? Yet I have chosen you, just you, to be with Me.

I long for intimate time with you. Please spend it with Me now. Read My word. Let Me speak to you of past glories and past stories, and over all, My love for you through all existence. It is the written story through all generations, ending with the story of your salvation through My Son, Jesus Christ.

Let’s make our own story. The story of how I walked with you. Just you.

I am here, dear one.  I am here.

Isaiah 61:1 NKJV:

““The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me, because the Lord has anointed Me To preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound;”
