I want to be known by you

Today’s Holy Spirit Love Note:

I want to be known by you. It brings me great joy when you seek my heart. When you explore my word in an attempt to understand me more, I am delighted. There are many mysteries of course but I’m not far from you and I don’t step away, forcing you into a game of hide and seek.

But you’ve noticed that I seem to offer contradictions and this confuses you. How can laughter be good medicine and sadness good for the heart? How can I say that I will always hate someone and refuse to never stop loving them? How can I command against murder and call David a man after my own heart?

It all comes back to how I am known by you. Who am I to you? Who do you say I am? The filter through which you explore life impacts what you’ll see and this is as true for your Creator as it is for the pencil on your desk.

The difference between me and an inanimate pencil is I am alive and loving and reaching out to you to be known. I want you to know my heart. I want to walk in relationship with you. I want to share all things with you. 

And as you begin to understand my heart towards you, the contradictions and confusion become unimportant. You find yourself content to rest in my love. Some might call this blind faith but I call it loving faith. You have faith based on who I am to you, faith anchored in love. It’s not blind faith. It’s faith based on relationship.

And that’s why I love it when you seek my heart. Being known for who I am is such a joy! Thank you for journeying with me. Would you like to know more of me? Ask me!

Simple and easy

Today’s Holy Spirit Love Note:

Let joy be your continual feast, make your life a prayer, and in the midst of everything, be always giving thanks. How? Me-helping you of course!

Yes, we’re going there again because you’re still trying to willpower your way through some areas of your life. I know you don’t think you are but it’s impossible to see your own blind spots so that’s why we’re having this conversation today.

I don’t need you try and be strong for my sake. Many things are upside down in the Kingdom. The first shall be last and the last shall be first. Jesus the Master came to be a servant. When you’re weak, you’re strong.

What this really means is that when you rely upon me, lean on me, co-labour with me, allow us to move and grow and explore together; when you stop trying to have everything figured out and instead allow yourself to always be in a position of a learner, then you are at your strongest!

I am the vine, you are the branches, remember? When you try and separate yourself from me you can do nothing. Worse than nothing, away from me you lose the vital life force that comes from being connected to the life force. Away from me you will shrivel up and die!

I know that sounds dramatic but this is how seriously I take remaining in me. Your life is to be one of joy, love and thanksgiving, but apart from me this is impossible. You’ll manage a vain imitation for a time and you might fool a few people but I am never fooled.

But remaining in me is simple and easy. I don’t lay rules and regulations on you. There are no hoops to jump through. It’s simply about doing life together, one moment at a time. That’s how you remain in me. Simple and easy.

Good is the enemy of best

Today’s Holy Spirit Love Note:

Pause in this moment and allow me to show you the things that are on my heart concerning you. I see so much potential in you. There is the you I created you to be, full of anticipation and excitement for what lies ahead. You really are a wonder and a delight to me. Pause in this moment and let me lavish you with my love. There is nothing that you can’t do when you follow my lead and allow us to move together.

Hear my heart … this is not an invitation to do everything. You’re not a machine! This is not about powering through, trying to be superhuman. You are a super human of course, you are very good, but you will have success beyond anything you can possibly imagine in those areas of my best for you, when you move with me.

Moving into my very best for you is going to mean letting go of other things that are good. Good is the enemy of best. You could live a whole lifetime aiming for “good”, never stepping into my very best for you, and that would be a tragedy!

Pause in this moment and let us explore my best for you. Ask me if there are any “good” things that I’m inviting you to move away from. Yes, I know this feels uncomfortable but this is not about making you miserable!

This is about guiding you into my very best. You’re so capable, if we don’t pause and explore together you’ll all too easily move down a path that is good instead of great. I don’t want that to be your reality. I love you too much to let you do that. So ask me, trusting that I will make up any difference, always.

Expect the unexpected

Today’s Holy Spirit Love Note:

My thoughts are different to yours. Unusual, yes. Often unexpected and counter-cultural. I am able to consider situations in a way that you never could and I want to share with you in the pondering. I love to share my heart with you, explore with you what’s on my mind.

Even as we explore all of the things together, know this … it is inevitable that every word I speak will be fulfilled at just the right time. And I want to partner with you in the fulfilment of my promises. Yes, I could do it alone but I am love. I am community. Together is a part of who I am.

As you co-labour with me in this adventure, you’re going to walk into situations where it feels like my words cannot possibly come to pass. Your feelings are a guide but they do not get the final say. No matter how you feel, all my promises are yes and amen!

You’re wondering about those occasions where it appears that I have changed my mind? This is one of those occasions where I invite you to trust me. I know it’s confusing to when you hear a word from me and it doesn’t come to pass in the way it was described to you. You doubt yourself and wonder if you ever really heard from me.

Are you able to simply trust that yes, you do hear from me and sometimes things unfold differently because of circumstances you can’t know and see? I recognise that that’s a lot to ask of you but never forget that we don’t need to have just one conversation about things.

If something is on your heart, if there’s a promise from me that you’re clinging to, keep exploring it with me. Keep asking questions. And keep following my lead. Expect the unexpected and know that you do so from a position of unconditional love and care.

What season are you in?

Today’s Holy Spirit Love Note:

It is finished! The enemy is defeated! Stop looking to the media for the score. The battle has already been won! If you want to focus on any score, keep score of how many times today you choose love instead of fear.

It is a choice and one that gets easier with practice. You’re not ruled by your emotions. You’re free to notice them and then, me-helping you, move on with the rest of your day, loving as you go.

I know I make that sound very simple but I’m here to help you so it really is simple. Simple and yes, even easy if you allow yourself to be guided by me. I know you hear this from me a lot but it really is vital. When you move with me, you’re living your best life, no exceptions!

You focus on all the things you haven’t done yet or all the areas where you don’t measure up without realising just how powerful you are. If you really knew the power you have, yes through me but delegated power is still power! And if you knew how powerful you are, you wouldn’t allow yourself to get intimidated so easily.

Let me show you the areas of your life where I’m inviting you to move with power and authority today. Yes, there are seasons of waiting but not every season is a waiting season. Sometimes it’s time to move! How will you know if you don’t ask me?

So ask me what season you’re in. Ask me what power and authority look like within the context of that season. Ask, always expecting an answer, and then let me help you move in accordance with what you hear. One step at a time, together.

Created for a life of joy

Today’s Holy Spirit Love Note:

As you move with me, as you let the reality of my love take up residence in your life, as you love others, your capacity for joy will increase. You were created for a life of joy. A joy built on loving me and loving others. It is your natural, at rest, state. Yes, you live in a world that is not yet perfect but that doesn’t change your original design. Your DNA hasn’t changed. You’re still mine!

Those times when you find yourself moving from a different place, a different that isn’t joy filled, take that as your cue to check in with me. Let me help you love in all circumstances. It won’t always be easy for you but it’s my best for you and you don’t have to try and do it on your own. With me, remember. Follow my lead. Watch how I move.

And lighten up! Since when did love and joy get so serious? You should be the most vibrant, peace-filled, happy person you know. When people look to you, do they see me? I am holy yes but I am also love, joy and peace. Let the corners of your mouth lift up once in a while. It’ll do you good and be a better representation of me!

This is not about being frivolous or disrespectful. I am powerful and mighty, respect your Dad, but you can have fun with me. I don’t want you to be afraid of me. I want you to let me love you and it’s hard for you to do that if you’re worrying about saying the wrong thing.

Hear me again on this … there is nothing you can do, say, think or read that will ever stop me from loving you. Be certain of my love for you and let that love empower you to a life of joy. It’s what you were born for!

A natural consequence of remaining

Today’s Holy Spirit Love Note:

One of the beautiful benefits of flowing with me through day to day life is I can and will grow in you to produce fruit. Fruit that will last. Fruit that you don’t have to strive for. Fruit that is a natural consequence of your life in me.

I am the vine, you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit. It’s a promise. I cannot lie so you can take me at my word and if you remain in me, expect fruit! Yes, all sorts of different fruit. I am incredibly creative and I love to give you good gifts. Don’t put a limit on the fruit that will show up in your life when you remain in me.

For today though, the fruit I want to grow in you is patience. Don’t roll your eyes. Yes, I see you and yes, I’m smiling too. Everything is for your good, remember, and you don’t need to strive for anything, even patience. You simply need to keep doing what you’re doing, putting one foot in front of the other with me. As you do, you will grow in patience. It is a natural consequence of remaining in me.

You think you don’t like patience but it is a beautiful gift. Patience helps you show up with love when it seems like the people around you aren’t making any progress at all. You’re not the one to measure progress of course, outcomes are on me, but allowing the fruit of patience to ripen is delightful.

Patience allows you to embrace the joy in each moment instead of pushing to rush to what’s next. You miss so much glory, awe and wonder in a day when you run at full speed. Be patient. Slow down. See the delightful right under your nose!

Hope again

Today’s Holy Spirit Love Note:

Look up, I’m inviting you to hope again! For every season of disappointment, I’m bringing you a fresh anointing of my healing balm of hope. This is not wishful thinking, crossing your fingers and hoping. This is hope that only I can give you. Certain hope. A hope based on the evidence of Jesus. Hope based on all the promises that are done from my perspective. You’re here to walk a path that I’ve prepared in advance for you. That’s the hope you have.

This is not about burying your head in the sand and denying the reality around you. This is about seeing from a new perspective, a new reality, and sharing that perspective with others. Share from Whom you have hope. When all around you are losing their heads, speak the name of the One who quiets the storm and brings sight to the blind.

Miracles, signs and wonders are yours to carry as you navigate this path with me. Jesus set the bar and he expects you to leap over it! Not because you’re so wonderful (although you are!) but because of Who you travel with.

As you partner with me to bring hope to a hurting world, you can expect the miraculous. Call on my name. Make a withdrawal based on who I am to you. It is not presumptuous to do so. It is what Jesus said you would do!

Follow my lead and you will not go wrong. Allow me to lead and guide you and you’ll be living slap bang in the centre of my best for you – and the world around you will sit up and notice. This is not the season for skulking around in the shadows. I’m calling you forward. Have hope my beloved. This day is not over!

Jesus, the ultimate care package

Today’s Holy Spirit Love Note:

Keep your eyes on Jesus. He did and said only what He saw and heard from me and I’m inviting you to do the same. And that’s not to say that you can’t engage your mind but I want your mind to be transformed, made whole and healthy in me. As you allow me to renew your mind, you’ll find the conversations around you will be refreshed and renewed too. As you are transformed, you’ll bring transformation to others. That’s how good I am!

Don’t worry about how what you say and do is being received. Simply keep moving with me, allowing me to guide you, and leave the outcome, the how and the when, with me. But know that you are making an impact. Lives are being regenerated every time you choose to show up in my love.

I love my son, he is so precious to me, and as much as he is loved, as close as we move in relationship, that’s what I want for you and me too. That’s why Jesus came. He is the ultimate care package, sent to a world before it even knew it needed rescuing.

We planned the entire thing from start to finish before we created a single star. Yes, that efficient and thoughtful. Don’t ever believe the lie that I am slow and don’t think that this world is out of control, don’t you dare!

I am playing the long game because of all humanity, every single one of the billions and billions ever conceived, is important to me and has a place in the age to come. Don’t mistake love for slowness or negligence!

Simply keep moving with me. Follow my lead and embrace everything I’m doing. That’s how you live a life of consequence. Consequence for this age and the age to come.

Who are you?

Today’s Holy Spirit Love Note:

As you step into this brand new season, it’s time to embrace your identity. Who are you? Whose are you? Why are you here? What is the invitation in today? Your ability to recognise and claim your identity as my precious child, a child of the King, beloved of the One who set the sun and moon into place, is vital!

The King’s children have access and special privileges not afforded to others. The King’s children stand tall, shoulders back, knowing that their Dad has their back and will not let them down. The King’s children are already victorious!

Is this your reality? Yes! You are a new creation. The old is gone, the new is here. It’s time to claim your royal inheritance, your identity, your royal robes. Stop picking around in the dirt looking for scraps! Stop looking for yesterday’s identity, yesterday’s wardrobe. It does not befit you!

And ask me to open your eyes, all your senses, so you can see the gold in those around you. Let me show you royalty in the person in front of you. Ask me to help you call other people into their identity.

The King’s children don’t need to squabble over who has the biggest gem or the best robe. There is an unlimited supply of goodness for all of my children so don’t hesitate to call others up and into my presence. You don’t be afraid to celebrate others. Your celebration is beautiful!

See the smile on my face as you rise together. I love it when my kids play together nicely, encouraging each other forward. It warms my heart and makes me glad. You warm my heart and make me glad!
