Dwelling in the Heavenly Realms

23 Jan

My Take

DiVoran Lites

Matthew 6-13

Our Father, dwelling in the heavenly realms, may the glory of your name be the center on which our lives turn.

Manifest your kingdom realm, and cause your every purpose to be fulfilled in heaven.

We acknowledge you as our Provider of all we need each day.

Forgive us the wrongs we have done as we ourselves release forgiveness to those who have wronged us.

Rescue us every time we face tribulation and set us free from evil. 

For you are the King who rules with power and glory forever. 

Amen

DiVoran has been writing for most of her life. Her first attempt at a story was when she was seven years old and her mother got a new typewriter. DiVoran got to use it and when her dad saw her writing he asked what she was writing about. DiVoran answered that she was writing the story of her life. Her dad’s only comment was, “Well, it’s going to be a very short story.” After most of a lifetime of writing and helping other writers, DiVoran finally launched her own dream which was to write a novel of her own. She now has her Florida Springs trilogy and her novel, a Christian Western Romance, Go West available on Amazon. When speaking about her road to publication, she gives thanks to the Lord for all the people who helped her grow and learn.  She says, “I could never have done it by myself, but when I got going everything fell beautifully into place, and I was glad I had started on my dream.”

Thoughts

My Take

DiVoran Lites

Isaiah 55:8-11

My thoughts, says the Lord,

Are not like yours.

As high as the heavens are above the earth, 

So high are my ways and thoughts from yours.

My word is like the snow and the rain that come down from the sky to water the earth.

They make the crops grow and provide seed for planting and food to eat. So also will be the word that I speak; it will not fail to do what I plan for it; It will do everything I send it to do. 

You will leave Babylon with joy; you will be led out of the city in peace. The mountains and hills will burst into singing the trees will shout for joy.

Wisdom and Discretion

9 Jan

My Take

DiVoran Lites

Proverbs 3:21-26

My child, let them not depart from your eyes—-

Keep sound wisdom and discretion; 

So they will be life to your soul and grace to your neck.

Then you will walk safely in your way, 

And your foot will not stumble. 

When you lie down, you will not be afraid;

Yes, you will lie down, and your sleep will be sweet. 

Do not be afraid of sudden terror,

Nor of trouble from the wicked when it comes; 

For the Lord will be your confidence,

And will keep your foot from being caught.

Perfect Peace

2 Jan

My Take

DiVoran Lites

Isaiah 26:3+

You, Lord, give perfect peace to those who keep their purpose firm and put their trust in You.

Trust in the Lord forever; he will always protect us. He has humbled those who were proud. 

Lord, you make the path smooth for good people; the road they travel is level. 

We follow your will and put our hope in you; you are all that we desire.

Shouts of Glory

My Take

Psalms 148:1-7

Hallelujah! Praise the Lord!

Let the skies be filled with praise and the highest heavens with the shouts of glory!

Go ahead—praise him, all you, his messengers!

Praise him some more, all you heavenly hosts!

Take it up even higher up to the highest heavens until the cosmic chorus thunders his praise!

Let the entire universe erupt from nothing to something. He spoke and created it all. 

He established the cosmos to last forever, and he stands behind his commands so his orders will never be revoked.

A little Christmas humor.

Mighty Warriors

Ps. 45:3-4 TPT

Now strap your lightning sword of judgment upon your side, O mighty warrior, so majestic!

You are full of beauty and splendor as you go out to war! In your glory and grandeur, go forth in victory!

Through your faithfulness and meekness, the cause of truth and justice will stand. Awe-inspiring miracles are accomplished by your power, leaving everyone dazed and astonished!”

A Tribute

My Take

Round up an orchestra to play for God, 

Add on a hundred-voice choir.

Feature trumpets and big trombones,

Fill the air with praises to King God.

Let the sea and its fish give a foundation of applause,

With everything living on earth joining in.

Let ocean breakers call out, “Encore!”

And mountains harmonize with the finale 

A tribute to God when he comes,

When he comes to set the earth right.

God Sends Angels

5 Dec

My Take

DiVoran Lites


When we live our lives within the shadow of God Most High, our secret hiding place, we will always be shielded from harm. How, then could evil prevail against us or disease infect us?

God sends angels with special orders to protect you wherever you go, defending you from all harm. If you walk into a trap, they’ll be there for you and keep you from stumbling. You’ll even walk unharmed among the fiercest powers of darkness, trampling every one of them beneath your feet!

For here is what the Lord has spoken to me: Because you have delighted in me as my great lover, I will greatly protect you. 

I will set you in a high place, safe and secure, before my face. I will answer your cry for help every time you pray. You will find and feel my presence in your time of pressure and trouble.

I will be your glorious hero and give you a feast. You will be satisfied with a full life and with all that I do for you. For you will enjoy the fullness of my salvation!

Ps. 66:1-4

For the pure and shining one, 

A Song for awakening.

Everyone everywhere, lift up your joyful shout to God!

Sing your songs tuned to his glory!

Tell the world how wonderful he is.

For he’s the awe-inspiring God, 

Great and glorious in power!

We’ve never seen anything like him!

Mighty in miracles, you cause your enemies to tremble

No wonder they all surrender and bow before you! 

All the earth will bow down to worship;

All the earth will sing your glories forever!

O God in Zion, to You, even silence is praise!
You are the God who answers prayer,
All of humanity comes before you with their requests
Though we are overcome by our many sins,
Your sacrifice covers over them all.
And your priestly lovers, those you’ve chosen,
Will be greatly favored to be brought close to you.
What inexpressible joys are theirs!
What feasts of mercy fill them in your heavenly sanctuary!
How satisfied we are to be near you!
Psalm 65:1-7
