Partaking Of His Promises + (Giveaway)






But Jesus answered, “The scripture says, ‘Human beings cannot live on bread alone, but need every word that God speaks.’” (Matthew 4:4 GNT)

Today’s focal verse is one of my favorite verses in the entire Bible because it’s a very powerful reminder of how vital it is for us to not only partake of the word of God everyday, but to savor, revel in, and meditate upon the truth of its promises to us.

I also love the AMP version of today’s focal verse as well because it adds a bit more depth which makes the words of Jesus a bit more personal to us.

But Jesus replied, “It is written and forever remains written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes out of the mouth of God.’” (Matthew 4:4 AMP)

I’m a genuine lover of the Bible and I have just been lingering in and enjoying it almost every single day for the last 11 years. However, as 2019 was starting to come to a close, The Lord really started to deeply impress upon my heart how necessary it was going to be to truly feast upon and stay rooted in the word of God in days ahead. I had many nights where The Lord would wake me up in the middle of the night and give me a specific verse or passage of scripture to meditate on for that day. And so, all of 2020, I just consumed the word every single day.

That was such a game changer for me because in doing that, I had SO many “selah moments”. Moments where I was just able to intentionally pause, intimately reflect upon, and truly internalize the word of God. And as I did that, SO many of God’s promises took root in my heart and just began to blossom and come alive in my life in ways that I could have never dreamed or imagined.

I share this with you guys because I know that if you were to do the same, you would begin to foster and cultivate this new hunger, appreciation, faith in, and love for God’s word as you witness His promises come to fruition in your own lives.

I leave you with this verse to pause and reflect upon… What a God you are! Your path for me has been perfect! All your promises have proven true. What a secure shelter for all those who turn to hide themselves in You! You are the wrap-around God giving grace to me. (Psalm 18:30 TPT)

Hide yourself in His word and you will partake of His promises.

And don’t for a minute let this Book of The Revelation be out of mind. Ponder and meditate on it day and night, making sure you practice everything written in it. Then you’ll get where you’re going; then you’ll succeed.  (Joshua 1:8 MSG)

Sunday Soul Kiss Kingdom Creative/Entrepreneur Spotlight Of The Week

This week’s Sunday Soul Kiss spotlight shines on Lyn Joyfull who is a beautiful woman of God and CEO of Love Yourself Jewelry.







I bought the beautiful mystic rainbow topaz ring that you see above from Lyn last year in July and not only did I receive the ring that I bought, but The Lord impressed it upon Lyn’s heart to also send me an amazing prophetic word and a sterling silver band with “I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine…” engraved on it. That is from the Song of Solomon 6:3. The Song of Solomon is my favorite book in the Bible because a few years ago I had several supernatural encounters with God that were directly from the Song of Solomon after The Lord had me camp out in that particular book for about 4 years. But just to show you how The Lord works, you would have to be very close to me to know that and I had never met Lyn.

To shop with Lyn at Love Yourself Jewelry, please click here.  If you’d like to connect with her on social media, you may do so through the following links. Instagram / Facebook

    • Hi, Lauren! The AMP often gives more richness and depth to a verse. I always compare versions and then meditate on the one that grips my heart the most. 💙😊

      Thanks so much for visiting with me! Hope you were blessed here! 🙏🏾😊


  1. I’m always encouraged to hear of others who love to read God’s words. Thanks for sharing this, Tai! I rotate through a 2-year Bible reading plan and it never gets old. I try to read a different translation every two years so the words don’t become common. I never want to lose my hearing for God’s voice.


    • That’s awesome, Lisa! I too love to compare and read through different versions. I find that doing that helps me to connect to the word of God in a deeper way. And like you, I always want to be tuned in to hear His voice.

      Anyway, so glad that you stopped by today! Blessings to you! 🙏🏾😊


  2. What wonderful encouragement! I loved this post. I am currently reading through the Bible and just read these verses from Matthew last night. I have never been given a specific verse by the Lord. Maybe I need to quiet my mind and listen harder. That would be an amazing experience!


    • Awww! I’m so glad that you loved it, Laurie! 😊And you are exactly right! For me, it is often in my intentional stillness that I hear His voice the most.

      Hugs and blessings to you, Sister! 🤗🙏🏾


  3. Great post, Tai! I love to linger in God’s Word too. I generally read through the bible every year, this year chronologically, but with added readings in the evening which gets me through the NT twice in the year. I feel like I can’t get enough of His word into my heart! I love using various translations, as you point out to get more richness from the words. Such an encouraging post! Thank you!!


    • You are most welcome, Donna! It’s such a beautiful thing to linger in God’s word and Presence! 😊💙

      I’m so glad that you stopped by! Just reading your comment was so refreshing! Hugs and blessings to you! 🤗🙏🏾


    • Thank you so much, Kristie! I am truly honored! 💙 I will definitely drop by! Also, in reference to the giveaway, I emailed the giveaway to you! 😊

      Hugs and blessings to you! 🤗🙏🏾

    • Awww! Thank you, Pat! I’m so happy to hear that you’ve been inspired here and if there’s any way that I can pray for you today, please let me know! 🙏🏾

      Hugs and blessings to you! 💙🤗🙏🏾


  5. Tai, thank you for sharing such an encouraging post. This touched me, It felt like you were talking directly to me , when you spoke about Selah. Selah is my one word 2021, as it spoke to me to intentionally pause and reflect on God’s word. I also try to pause and reflect on what others share here in the Christian blogosphere. My desire to learn more about our Lord is insatiable, and includes learning from others. Blessings.

    • Awww! You are most welcome, Paula! I’m so happy to know that you’ve been encouraged here! That truly blesses my heart! 💙😊

      I think selah is the perfect word for 2021. Honestly, it’s perfect for any time. But as you pause and reflect may The Lord saturate you with His Presence and give your greater understanding of His promises to you. 🙏🏾😊🙌🏾

      My word for this year is create. God has put so much in my heart to bring forth, so I really want to focus on using my creativity to bring Him glory. 😊

      Anyway, I’m so glad that you stopped by! Thank you so much! Hugs and blessings to you, Sister! 🤗🙏🏾


      • Thank you so very much! 💙 It really means a lot that you enjoyed visiting with me here. I just followed you as well! 🤗 Also, if you decide to buy anything from either of my nano Bible partners, don’t forget to use the code: ASKS10 and you’ll receive a discount. 😊


    • You are most welcome, Linda! And you are very right about that. We definitely need all of those things now more than ever.

      Thanks so much for stopping by to visit with me today! Hugs and blessings to you, my friend! 🤗🙏🏾


  6. I so enjoyed my visit with you Tai. It is so important that we are rooted in God’s Word where we draw from the well that never runs dry. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today. Blessings~


  7. Tai, what a blessing you are to your sisters in Christ. I thoroughly enjoyed the video. The music and scripture you paired together are so relaxing … feels magical. Thank you!


    • Awww! Thank you so much for such sweet and encouraging words, Kim! That really means a lot to me. 💙 And you are most welcome! I’m so glad that you enjoyed the video and your visit here! 😊

      Hugs and blessings to you! 🤗🙏🏾


  8. So true. As I’ve aged and look back over these many, many years, God has given me a perfect path even though at times could not see it. Thank you for the positive and uplifting post, and the free things to help with our journey. Have a safe and blessed week.


    • You are most welcome, Nancy! So happy to know that you found encouragement here and that you were blessed by the verses. Thank you so much for stopping by to visit! Hugs and blessings to you! 🤗🙏🏾


  9. Tai, yes to all you said about spending time daily in God’s word. I have definitely found God’s word ministers to the places I need most, especially when I’m struggling with something or going through a difficult time. I like your focal verses. And, though I often also read the daily verse on the Bible app, I’ve never made it for more than a few weeks before breaking my streak. 🙂 Well done. 🙂

    This post would be a great fit for the link up over at Tell His Story, if you ever feel like linking up in another place.


    • Thanks so much, Jeanne! Like you, the word always ministers to me when I need it most and I thank God for that! And a tip for studying the Bible and meditating on the word daily is to do it when you first wake up in the morning like before you even get out of bed and when you get ready for bed at night. That way you end and start your day with the word with no distractions. 😊

      And I would be honored to link-up with you at Tell His Story! Hugs and blessings to you! 🤗🙏🏾


  10. I love that: a selah moment. God’s Word is so important in our lives. I found out this weekend that two of my step-children don’t read their Bibles. My heart hurts. How can you live your life guided by God without reading his Word? Without knowing how He thinks about things. Without aligning yourself with His will? Without His bread?


    • I’m so sorry to hear that, Ashley! It’s definitely tough on our hearts to find out things like that because we just want God’s best for the people that we love. But prayer is powerful! So perhaps, praying for them to develop a hunger for God’s word would be the best place to start and I will be praying in agreement with you!

      Hugs and blessings, Sister! 🤗🙏🏾
