Today's Scripture and Message:


Isaiah 54:5

For your Maker is your husband, the Lord of hosts is His name; and your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel; He is called the God of the whole earth.

Isaiah 62:3-5

You shall also be a crown of glory in the hand of the Lord, and a royal diadem In the hand of your God. You shall no longer be termed forsaken, nor shall your land any more be termed desolate; but you shall be called Hephzibah, and your land Beulah; for the Lord delights in you, and your land shall be married. For as a young man marries a virgin, so shall your sons marry you; and as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, so shall your God rejoice over you.

Desire the Bridegroom

My Beloved,

Hear your Beloved,

My Bride. Awaken, slumbering spirit. Arise-- your Bridegroom is near. Keep coming. Keep listening, for I am nearby. I wait for you as you are waiting upon Me.

Be encouraged. Be of good cheer. Do not lose hope, for I am coming closer. I have never lost sight of you. My Beloved, keep hungering for your Bridegroom. Press inward toward Me. I love to be desired. Stir the embers of your heart, that you do not grow cold. Blow gently upon the embers. Fan the flame of our love. Keep faithful to your journey, as I am faithful to you. Do not worry how you will grow, just trust in My promises to you. It is not too late for you, dear one. Keep looking at Me.

My timing is perfect, as are My plans for you. Grow in love for Me by remembering My love for you. Do not grow weary of waiting, for I am worth the wait. Do what you can to fuel the flame of our love. Be hungry without becoming bitter. Have expectant faith. I will not lead you astray. I am a gentleman.
