Marking the Seasons

“In Every Season” by Meghan Williams, Dyed4you Art

Genesis 1:14-15 (AMP) Then God said, “Let there be light-bearers (sun, moon, stars) in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be useful for signs (tokens) [of God’s provident care], and for marking seasons, days, and years; and let them be useful as lights in the expanse of the heavens to provide light on the earth”; and it was so, [just as He commanded].

1 Timothy 6:12 (AMP) Fight the good fight of the faith [in the conflict with evil]; take hold of the eternal life to which you were called, and [for which] you made the good confession [of faith] in the presence of many witnesses.

There is a time and a season for everything. Knowledge cannot change what time is sent to do. We need to stand firm in what time and season God has called us to and not waver from the promises He has established. He will fulfill those promises and bring them to pass as long as we stand firm in His truth and the knowledge that He is trustworthy.

We cannot waver. Even as seasons end and new seasons begin, we have a choice to stand in His faithfulness, His goodness, and His love. His words do not come back empty or void. They are full and completed and filled with His harvest. We get to share in the joy of that harvest if we remain faithful and secure in His truth.

As we reside in Him, we are His light-bearers. Our indwelling with Him brings about a radiant peace that overflows and brings light into dark and broken places. Stand up, beloved, and shine brightly. Be the bearer of light God has called you to be.

Be full of His truth and overflow in His graciousness and goodness. Be the light, truth, grace, and love that God has poured forth in you to those around you. Be you—the you that God called forth and breathed life into. You are His creation!

Now go forth and shine with the brilliance of light He placed in you. You are the bearer of His Word. Breathe it in, and breathe it out onto those around you. 

Be at peace with the changing of days, changing of seasons, the marking of time. Beloved, God is in the seasons. He is in the middle of time. He is the great I Am and nothing escapes His notice. He does not miss one thing, one detail, one piece of time. He is in it all gathering it to His bosom, holding every piece of time tenderly and with great compassion.

He is there, beloved, and He treasures every moment. He brings it all into unity and never stops releasing His power into time to heal all diseases, to restore the broken and disheartened, to bring to fullness all of His creation. He will never stop loving you. You are His and will always be forever His.

Anointing Comes Through Repentance

Consuming Fire” by Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Art

{vision} Fire that looks like a rose dripping oil into another flickering fire below. 

The rose of Sharon is bringing the oil of thanksgiving to those who have been restored, healed, forgiven. This oil will stir up the passion for all that God has called them to as children of His kingdom. He has restored the lost and the broken, and the bitter hearts have been made whole. He is calling out to His children to repent and come to Him. He desires our hearts to be filled with Him and His love. He wants to pour out His anointing oil upon us, but we must be prepared to receive it.  Continue reading “Anointing Comes Through Repentance”

Kingdom Identity and Honor

Rightful Place” by Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Art

Matthew 5:16 (AMP) “Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good deeds and moral excellence, and [recognize and honor and] glorify your Father who is in heaven.”

Luke 20:25 (TPT) Jesus said, “Precisely. The coin bears the image of the Emperor Caesar, and you should give back to Caesar all that belongs to him. But you bear the image of God. So give back to God all that belongs to him.”

2 Corinthians 10:7, 18 (TPT) You seem to always be looking at people by their outward appearances. If someone is confident that he belongs to Christ, he should remind himself of this: we belong to Christ no less than he does. So let’s be clear. To have the Lord’s approval and commendation is of greater value than bragging about oneself.

Be the Light

Illuminating Light”  by Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Art

Matthew 5:14-16 (AMP) “You are the light of [Christ to] the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good deeds and moral excellence, and [recognize and honor and] glorify your Father who is in heaven.”

Ephesians 5:8-9 (TPT) Once your life was full of sin’s darkness, but now you have the very light of our Lord shining through you because of your union with him. Your mission is to live as children flooded with his revelation-light! And the supernatural fruits of his light will be seen in you—goodness, righteousness, and truth. Continue reading “Be the Light”

Favored One: Known One, Loved One

“Forever Bloom” by Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Art

Ephesians 3:14-21 (TPT) Then you will be empowered to discover what every holy one experiences—the great magnitude of the astonishing love of Christ in all its dimensions. How deeply intimate and far-reaching is his love! How enduring and inclusive it is! Endless love beyond measurement that transcends our understanding—this extravagant love pours into you until you are filled to overflowing with the fullness of God! So I kneel humbly in awe before the Father of our Lord Jesus, the Messiah, the perfect Father of every father and child in heaven and on the earth. And I pray that he would unveil within you the unlimited riches of his glory and favor until supernatural strength floods your innermost being with his divine might and explosive power. 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.

Never doubt God’s mighty power to work in you and accomplish all this. He will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination! He will outdo them all, for his miraculous power constantly energizes you. Now we offer up to God all the glorious praise that rises from every church in every generation through Jesus Christ—and all that will yet be manifest through time and eternity. Amen!

You are known and loved. Every hidden desire, need, want, shame, disappointment, and fear are known by God and He loves every part of you. He wants you to know that He delights in you and that you are valued, treasured, and cherished. You are His child. You are His heart. He created you to be known and loved by Him.

The word “know” can have many meanings when it comes to the Hebrew or Greek context. Ultimately, it means that God knows every single part of you and loves it all, and He is calling you to know Him in the same way. Yes, there are times He may be disappointed in your choices but, oh, how many more times there are when He is ecstatic over the steps you are taking and the progress you are making to become more like Him. 

He delights in you, His Child, and He is constantly whispering in your ear, “Well done, my child, well done!” He is so proud of you and is constantly saying of you, “Here is my child, who I love beyond words and am so pleased and delighted in!” This delight and pride is revealed in the favor you receive as you walk on the path He has planned and appointed you for. Receive this love and favor and know how much your Abba Daddy delights in you and rejoices over you in every way. 

{Hearing} You were born for an appointed time. Your design, your creation was highly favored by Me. You were created for a purpose and that purpose is to be My child, My Favored One. Nothing you do, no direction you go in, no decision you make will separate you from My love. Do I have ordained plans for you? Yes, I do. Yet no matter whether you choose to follow the path I have for you or not, I love you. (Romans 8:38-39 [AMP])

Favored One: An Appointed One for an Appointed Time

“Infinite Possibilities” by Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Art

During prayer time one day, God highlighted the name “Seth” to me, and below are revelations and the prophetic download I received as I pursued God’s heart. 

Genesis 5:3 (AMP) [emphasis mine] When Adam had lived a hundred and thirty years, he became the father of a son in his own likeness, according to his image, and named him Seth. 

The name of “Seth” can mean “appointed.” 

Definition of Appointed: to name or assign to a position, an office, or the like; designate: to appoint a new treasurer; to appoint a judge to the bench. to determine by authority or agreement; fix; set: to appoint a time for the meeting. (Definition found at Dictionary.com)

{vision} Saw a hand reaching down from heaven and the impression was from the verse Matthew 3:17 (AMP), “And behold, a voice from heaven said, ‘This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well-pleased and delighted!’”

2 Peter 1:17 (TPT) Yes, Father God lavished upon him radiant glory and honor when his distinct voice spoke out of the realm of majestic glory, endorsing him with these words: This is my cherished Son, marked by my love. All my delight is found in him!

Dear Favored One, for such a time as this, you have been selected. You were created before the foundations of the earth to fulfill My purpose. My purpose is this: to be loved by Me and take that love to others. That is it. You are My child, created in My image. I am Love, so, therefore, you are created to reflect that love, to be that love. In order to do that, you must receive My love. You are My child, My Favored One. 

So, come and crawl into My lap. I am your captive audience. I want to hear all you have to say. I want to see all that you have to show Me. Allow Me in. My desire is for you. I want to show you all My wonders. I want you to come create with Me. You were created by Me at this appointed time to be with Me. Only you can fulfill that space in My heart. Only you can partner with Me and create with Me the beautiful things that I have planned for us to do together. Only you! I love you, My child—My Favored One. I love you. {Sensing a tender, gentle voice soothing the pain and removing all doubts and unbelief, healing the broken heart and mind and removing weapons of wounding, replacing and transforming all misgivings and lies with truth and love.}

Be Renewed, Be Transformed

Transformed by the Spirit by Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Art

2 Corinthians 5:17 (AMP) Therefore if anyone is in Christ [that is, grafted in, joined to Him by faith in Him as Savior], he is a new creature [reborn and renewed by the Holy Spirit]; the old things [the previous moral and spiritual condition] have passed away. Behold, new things have come [because spiritual awakening brings a new life].

All of what you were and all you are matter. Refuse shame. God has washed your sins away and every one of your experiences God will use for His glory. Your sins are gone! Receive His forgiveness, grace, and love. You are His beloved. He sent His son, Jesus, to die and live again for you that you may be whole, complete, and fulfilled in Him. Continue reading “Be Renewed, Be Transformed”

A Time of Water and Fruit

Spring up oh well! Tap into the store house, the reservoir that never runs dry. It is there. Remove the mindsets that say it’s too hard, that it’s impossible to attain. It is in front of you. Each step brings you closer to the well. Each step removes the constrictions, the mindsets, the perceptions, the fears that keep you blinded to the well of living water that never runs dry. It is there for the taking. Remove the blindfold, remove the blindfold, REMOVE THE BLINDFOLD. (Firm tone) Continue reading “A Time of Water and Fruit”

Kingdom Child

Mark 10:14-15 (AMP) But when Jesus saw this, He was indignant and He said to them, “Allow the children to come to Me; do not forbid them; for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. I assure you and most solemnly say to you, whoever does not receive and welcome the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it at all.”

God loves those who are childlike, full of faith and trust and filled with the light of His love and life. They don’t allow the lies of the enemy to shut them down. They turn their gaze on their Abba Daddy, King of the Universe, and their Shepherd, knowing He guards and protects them, and they move forward into all God has. These Kingdom children know that God delights in their exuberance and passion and play. They know He leads them and protects them, guarding their path and enabling their joyful, playful light of life to come forth and shine – making way for those who have been crushed in spirit to return to Abba Daddy and be restored into their joy-filled, passionate purpose once again.

His Banner Over Me is Love

{Dream} A tall lean woman with long brown hair down her back fighting against a whipping wind to erect a banner flag on a make shift pole out of a crooked long piece of wood. The banner has the colors of purple and turquoise. There is a tree in the middle that with a closer look are made out of peacock feathers. The phrase running through my head as she is raising this banner is “His Banner Over Me is Love.” The environment gives the sense of a war torn land. It’s dark with the wind whipping like there is a storm yet there is almost a glow of that purple and turquoise that are being reflected from the flag.  Continue reading “His Banner Over Me is Love”
