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.

A Stroll in the Garden

 

 

 

I have been quietly working and spending time with our Lord. 

Yesterday, I strolled in our garden as the sunset, and I gave thanks to the Lord for all He is in our lives. I noticed the beautiful light that was cast on our garden and its flowers. The sun bathes our garden every day, but there was a mesmerizing new light that filled my spirit with a new spiritual expectation. It was beautiful! 

I heard Him say, “Capture the moment.” And as I looked through the viewfinder I could see much more…

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.

Tend Your Light

Your light, Father, it calls to us – like a lighthouse on a bank surrounded by a body of water. It may be the very dark of night and the storm may be raging around us, but the beacon of hope is shining out. It is guiding us back to safety, back to the wonderful warm glow of light that floods – out piercing any darkness. The light is brighter in the darkness, and the darkness cannot shut it out.  Continue reading “Tend Your Light”

Choose to Be a Luminary

Matthew 5:16 (TPT) So don’t hide your light!  Let it shine brightly before others, so that the commendable things you do will shine as light upon them, and then they will give their praise to your Father in heaven.”

Having spent nearly a decade and a half in ministry, one of the travesties I’ve seen over and over is people believing they are less than they are. When I look at them, I see a lion, but when they look in the mirror they believe they’re seeing just a kitten – powerless and ineffectual. I’m not sure why we all seem to have an inclination to believe the worst of ourselves and the the truth is hard to receive, but it seems to be the case.

And yet in truth though we may believe the worst, on some level we HOPE that we are wrong. We HOPE that we truly are powerful and able to make a difference. What we fear is failing in that capacity. So we unconsciously come into agreement with the lies we’ve been told about ourselves (or had reflected to us), and decide to live smaller than our call. Thinking somehow this is safer. And yet, doing so leaves us feeling unfulfilled and robs the world of the blessing we are meant to be. Continue reading “Choose to Be a Luminary”

The Glory of the Throne Room and the Value of His Presence

The glory of the throne room exists outside of space and time, beloved. The door in the spirit realm stands open – waiting, an invitation for you to step in. Immerse yourself in My presence. Saturate yourself in My glory. 

Value Me – value My presence – as the greatest gift imaginable. Just as I have held nothing back in My pursuit of you, hold nothing back in your pursuit of Me. Value Me as the rarest of gems and sacrifice all to have Me. I AM worth the cost.  Continue reading “The Glory of the Throne Room and the Value of His Presence”

The God Who Sees

“Seek the Light” – by Meghan Williams, Dyed4you Art

Genesis 16:13 (VOICE) As a result of this encounter, Hagar decided to give the Eternal One who had spoken to her a special name because He had seen her in her misery. Hagar: I’m going to call You the God of Seeing because in this place I have seen the One who watches over me.

Beloved, in the midst of your pain, remember that I see. I see you, the beautiful soul I have made in My image. I see the scars you bear and every unhealed wound that needs addressing. I see all and I care for every part of you. I am not a God who is distant and unsympathetic to your suffering. I do not look upon you with shame or rejection. You are Mine and My love for you is irrevocable. Nothing could ever cause Me to change My opinion of you. Continue reading “The God Who Sees”

My Light Pierces the Harshest Night

Psalm 18:16 (TPT) …He reached down into my darkness to rescue me! He took me out of my calamity and chaos and drew me to himself, taking me from the depths of my despair!

Beloved, no darkness is too deep for Me to reach you. For My light pierces even the harshest night. So though the walls may seem to be closing in and the pit seems unbearably deep, rest assured, beloved, I AM with you and I AM mighty to save. I AM drawing you to My side.

And in the darkness when you cannot see and your senses feel impaired, remember that is where faith is made strongest, because you must choose to blindly trust in Me. So refuse to let the darkness overtake you, and cling tightly to My hand. For I AM faithful and no hardship of the night is enough to convince Me to leave your side. I AM with you always, so cling to Me. Continue reading “My Light Pierces the Harshest Night”
