Beloved, we were never intended to carry burdens. The One who holds out His arms waiting to receive yours is fully able and fully trustworthy. He is more mindful of your needs, desires, and call than you are; and He knows how to lead you and guide you and protect you – and will do so as you let Him. Trust without fear. He who loves you is able to carry you. Be at rest in His arms. There is peace in His presence and healing in His hands. His love will overtake any obstacle as you enter His arms.
Psalms 55:22 (TPT) So here’s what I’ve learned through it all: Leave all your cares and anxieties at the feet of the Lord, and measureless grace will strengthen you.
The name of your silk is Increase. The colors in it are:
White representing overcoming
Light Blue representing life-giving flow of the Holy Spirit
Light Turquoise representing healing
Dark Teal representing increase
Green halo shimmer representing double portion
The flow of the Holy Spirit (light blue) which comes from intimacy with God undergirds everything… it may not be visible to everyone, but the results of it – the increase (dark teal) – is apparent to all. It brings healing (turquoise) where it’s needed and allows an unobstructed flow. As you increase in all of these areas, there will be an overflow from your heart. The outpouring will be a living water that will bring life to a dry and parched people/land.
The scripture that goes with this silk is from Psalm 115:13-15 (ESV), “He will bless those who reverently and worshipfully fear the Lord, both small and great. May the Lord give you increase more and more, you and your children. May you be blessed of the Lord, Who made heaven and earth!”
Israel & New Breed’s song “No limits” is connected to this. The lyrics are written from the perspective of the Lord speaking to us, reminding us that we need to remember He is a limitless God and we need to stop trying to limit Him or box Him in so He feels understandable (and heaven forbid, controllable). It declares a time of increase and harvest – multiplication and enlargement. And finally it reminds us to not forget to ASK. Ask and it shall be given (Matthew 7:7).
A Prophetic Nugget from Daily Downloads from Heaven by Meghan Williams is connected to this. It’s called “Take the Limits Off of Me.”
John 16:24 (TPT) Until now you’ve not been bold enough to ask the Father for a single thing in my name, but now you can ask, and keep on asking him! And you can be sure that you’ll receive what you ask for, and your joy will have no limits!
Beloved, I AM a good Father who loves His children. Do you think a young child hesitates from asking their beloved earthly parent for anything their heart desires? Or that the parent of the cherished little one doesn’t weigh each request with reverence, desiring deeply to bless the child they love?
So beloved one, ask! Resist the urge to edit your requests, and instead pour out your heart’s desires to Me – trusting Me with those secret thoughts. If I withhold, it is not from a place of rejection or any lack of love, for My desire to bless you is beyond your comprehension. So take the limits off of Me and ask.
Another Prophetic Nugget from Daily Downloads from Heaven by Meghan Williams is connected to this. It’s called “Hold Fast to Hope and Believe.”
Genesis 40:14 (VOICE) But I ask one thing. Remember me when things are going well for you. If you have the opportunity, do me a favor and mention me to Pharaoh. Perhaps he will get me out of this place.
Beloved, you need not curry the favor of man, nor look to them in your time of need. I AM the great I AM, and I AM the One to look to. I AM the One who knows each plan for you and the perfect execution of each.
Look to Me, the Author and Finisher of your faith – the Alpha and Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. I AM God. There is no one higher than Me. Refuse to create an idol by looking to man to “help” when you believe Me slow to answer. Though I may seem to tarry, I tarry not.
Beloved, I know the hour and the moment of your deliverance. Look to Me and trust Me to move at exactly the right time. Embrace each moment, allowing the trials to increase your strength and your faith. Hold fast to hope and believe.
Another Prophetic Nugget from Daily Downloads from Heaven by Meghan Williams is connected to this. It’s called “YHVH Jireh (the Lord your Provider).”
Matthew 6:11 (KJV) Give us this day our daily bread.
Beloved, look to Me for your provision. Resist the urge to trust in man – who is as changeable as a summer breeze, or even to trust in your own human efforts – which are fallible at best. Instead look to Me, and know I AM fully able to take care of My children.
I AM YHVH Jireh, the Lord your Provider, and I AM creative in My provision. I multiplied the loaves and fishes, and I caused the Israelites’ shoes to never wear out as they wandered the desert. Look to Me, and trust Me to meet every need in its time.
Matthew 6:9-13 (KJV) After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
A final Prophetic Nugget from Daily Downloads from Heaven by Meghan Williams is connected to this. It’s called “Manifest Provision.”
Galatians 6:7 (VOICE) Make no mistake: God can’t be mocked. What you give is what you get. What you sow, you harvest.
Beloved, trust the process. You have been faithful to give, so you will be faithful to receive. Resist the urge to be impatient in the pause in between the two. For a cheerful giver gives simply for the joy of giving, not as a manipulation to receive. So keep your heart pure and give from a place of loving obedience, and refuse to let anything steal that joy.
I AM faithful and I AM good. What I have said, I will do. I cannot operate in a manner opposed to My character. So quietly wait in steadfast assurance knowing that I will multiply back to you your harvest. I AM fertile soil, so when you sow in Me you will reap abundantly.
A Meditation of the Word called “The Keys to Multiplication” from Elisa Eaton of Waiting in the Wings is connected to this.
John 6:10-13 (TPT) … So on the vast grassy slope, more than five thousand hungry people sat down. Jesus then took the barley loaves and the fish and gave thanks to God. He then gave it to the disciples to distribute to the people. Miraculously, the food multiplied, with everyone eating as much as they wanted. When everyone was satisfied, Jesus told his disciples, “Now go back and gather up the pieces left over so that nothing will be wasted.” The disciples filled up twelve baskets of fragments, a basket of leftovers for each disciple.
The keys to multiplication in ministry is remembering that there is always more than enough. It is the Father’s good pleasure to give you the Kingdom. You do not have to beg for your portion because you have Christ and Christ is the very Bread from Heaven and the Word of Life.
Like the loaves of bread and fishes, what you have to give to others will always come from of the overflow of your relationship with God. Your daily portion of His life and your daily portion of His Word are first and foremost for you. When the time comes to minister to others, seek God’s face and He will bless and multiply your portion.
Has someone come knocking on your door for bread or fish? Look into your cupboards, that miraculous storehouse of your heart. What is sustaining you today from His Word? What is the encouragement He has poured into your cup? What is the gentle correction that has shifted your thoughts and attitudes back towards Him? What is the revelation that you see bubbling forth from His Spirit at this hour?
Beloved, take a portion of what you have received and watch God multiply it. You will find that you will always have more than enough to give to others—and even some left over!
A pair of Prophetic Nuggets from “Daily Downloads from Heaven” by Meghan Williams are connected to this. They’re based on 2 Kings 2:9-10.
The first Prophetic Nugget is called “Ask in Faith.”
2 Kings 2:9 (VOICE) After the two had made it to the other side of the Jordan, Elijah spoke to Elisha. Elijah: Tell me what it is you would like me to do for you before I am taken away from you. Elisha: Please, I wish to receive a double portion of your spirit. As your successor, I want to have twice the portion of your power.
Beloved, if anointing is what you seek, don’t be afraid to ask. I love to empower My children, and I love to work through you. For those who are willing and tenacious in their faith, I AM able to do amazing and awesome things.
So if you desire to move powerfully on My behalf, cultivate relationship with Me and ask boldly. For I have given you access because of My love for you, so approach Me without hesitation, and ask in faith expecting Me to respond.
The second Prophetic Nugget is called “A Yielded Vessel Bears Much Fruit.”
2 Kings 2:10 (VOICE) Elijah:What you have requested of me is challenging, but it will be done if you witness my departure. But if you do not watch, then you will not have your double portion.
Beloved, you desire increase, but remember it often comes as a result of obedience and vigilance. Be sensitive to My Spirit’s leadings and you don’t miss a thing. Be ready and alert, and – when I give direction – be quick to obey.
Remember, beloved, your understanding isn’t required for you to be obedient. Step out in faith. Trust My direction. Trust I’ll bring loving correction when needed. So obey and trust, and then watch as I increase the powerful ways I move through you. A yielded vessel bears much fruit.
It has been prayed over and anointed with the Scent of Heaven’s Multiplication Power, which is used as a symbol of coming into unity with God and those He yokes us with all for the purpose of the multiplication power. The deeper meaning of this oil reads:
The multiplication power comes when forces join (one puts a thousand to flight and two puts ten thousand – Deuteronomy 32:30) and synergy happens, creating a deep and abiding strength. A strong marriage can be an example of this: the masculine and feminine traits joining with God in their midst – a powerhouse that brings forth life.
In this anointing oil, each essential oil is a “fighter” – with living, individual power, but as they’re combined they have a synergy that brings that multiplication power. These oils are mirroring the heart behind this anointing oil – the multiplication power. Again, one bringing a thousand to flight as two brings TEN thousand. Combined energies. Synergistic power. Exponential multiplication. In this anointing oil each essential oil has its role and that role or characteristic prophetically mirrors necessary roles and traits needed in groups to bring unity and that synergy that brings deep strength.
Lavender blends well with most oils. This flexibility speaks to what is needed to solidify unity. Working well with others. Joining. Melding. Multiplying together.
Ylang ylang has sweet and tenacious characteristics. This too speaks to the heart of the unifying warrior – tenacious, persistent yet sweet, able to connect with others.
Cassia is often used for vascular disorders. It’s help in keeping the blood (life) moving throughout the body is a vital part of unity.
Blood orange is one of the oils used to address nervous tension and stress. In the same way, for unity you need those who defuse situations and bring peace in lieu of tension.
Cedar has deep roots. It has a steadying factor. It also astringent and antiputrescent – combatting decay and purification. Bringing healing and cleansing to the body.
Roman chamomile is antibacterial, a fighter in your body – a warrior, like special forces. It is an agent that destroys that which attacks the body. It not only attacks the enemy, it’s the one who heals, promotes health, and brings harmony.
Oak moss is also called oak lungs or lung moss. It treats respiratory issues. In the same way, breathing life – making the way for the Breath of Life (the Holy Spirit) to be in the midst.
Labdanum (rose of Sharon) representing the Christ. The bond that connects us, grafting us and holding us together.
We pray this blesses you!
NOTE: If you’re wondering why I’ve shared this letter, I explain on my personal blog in a post called God Speaking Through Silk why I began sharing these on my personal blog. Later, I felt led to share some on the Dyed4you Ministries blog as well. So I share some here and some there (you can find the ones there in the silk words category). To find out more about the words we birth – including how they are created and what is typically included – visit our About Our Silk Letters and Art Words page.
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…
This is our Nissi flag, which features our YHVH Nissi silk. This flag is part of our “Names of God” Dyed4you Art flag line. Each of these flags feature an image of a related Dyed4you silk, the word for which is included as part of the word that goes with this flag. Additionally, these flags are anointed with the same oils as the original silks.
The Hebrew lettering on this flag says: Jehovah Nissi, which means the Lord our Banner. This name comes from Exodus 17:15 (KJV) [emphasis mine] “And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it Jehovahnissi:”
In scripture, the name of God is written with the Hebrew letters: yod-hey-vav-hey. This is sometimes noted in English by the acronym of the letters (YHVH); and sometimes vowels are added to create Jehovah, Yahweh (sometimes abbreviated YHWH), or Yehovah. All of these renditions refer to the one true God, the eternal one, maker of heaven and earth.
Though some people firmly believe in using one version over another, we use whichever one we feel led to given the circumstances. As Jehovah tends to be the most recognized version, that was what we felt led to use on this flag. Just as we see earthly parents and grandparents smile as their familial infants slaughter the pronunciation of their names, so we trust God will extend grace to us. We believe His primary concern is that we are in fact calling on Him. And the fact that we are gives Him much pleasure.
Exodus 17:15 (NLT) Moses built an altar there and named it Yahweh-Nissi (which means “the LORD is my banner”).
Beloved, I AM Jehovah Nissi – the Lord your banner, your miracle. And when that day of victory comes, be intentional to take note so that when future battles make you weary, you will remember you serve the victorious One.
Refuse to forget the successes of the past, and use them as memorial stones to build your foundation of faith so you will be unshakable in future. For I AM the same – yesterday, today, and forever – and I AM God.
It has been prayed over and anointed with The Scent of Heaven’sVictory oil, which is used as a reminder that our victory is in Him. The scriptures that go with this oil are:
1 Corinthians 15:57 – “But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
1 John 5:4 – “For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world— our faith.”
Indeed you are able to do “all things through Christ who strengthens you.” God gives you the authority to fight and win the battle you face.
We pray it blesses you!

The name of your silk is YHVH Nissi (The LORD My Banner). The colors in it are:
Kelly green representing life
White representing victory
Indigo representing kingdom authority
Cobalt Blue representing standing on the Word of God
The scriptures that go with this silk are:
Exodus 17:9-15 (ESV) So Moses said to Joshua, “Chose for us men, and go out and fight… Tomorrow I will stand on top of the hill with the staff of God in my hand.” So Joshua did as Moses told him, and fought…while Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill. Whenever Moses held up his hand, Israel prevailed, and whenever he lowered his hand, Amalek prevailed. But Moses’ hands grew weary, so they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat on it, while Aaron and Hur held up his hands, one on one side, and the other on the other side. So his hands were steady until the going down of the sun. And Joshua overwhelmed Amalek and his people with the sword… And Moses built an altar and called the name of it, The Lord Is My Banner.
Psalms 60:4 (NLT) But you have raised a banner for those who fear you– a rallying point in the face of attack.
Isaiah 59:19 (KJV) When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.
O Eternal One, You have explored my heart and know exactly who I am; You even know the small details like when I take a seat and when I stand up again. Even when I am far away, You know what I’m thinking. You observe my wanderings and my sleeping, my waking and my dreaming, and You know everything I do in more detail than even I know. You know what I’m going to say long before I say it. It is true, Eternal One, that You know everything and everyone. You have surrounded me on every side, behind me and before me, and You have placed Your hand gently on my shoulder. It is the most amazing feeling to know how deeply You know me, inside and out; the realization of it is so great that I cannot comprehend it. Can I go anywhere apart from Your Spirit? Is there anywhere I can go to escape Your watchful presence? For You shaped me, inside and out. You knitted me together in my mother’s womb long before I took my first breath. I will offer You my grateful heart, for I am Your unique creation, filled with wonder and awe. You have approached even the smallest details with excellence; Your works are wonderful; I carry this knowledge deep within my soul. You see all things; nothing about me was hidden from You As I took shape in secret, carefully crafted in the heart of the earth before I was born from its womb. You see all things; You saw me growing, changing in my mother’s womb; Every detail of my life was already written in Your book; You established the length of my life before I ever tasted the sweetness of it. Your thoughts and plans are treasures to me, O God! I cherish each and every one of them! How grand in scope! How many in number! If I could count each one of them, they would be more than all the grains of sand on earth. Their number is inconceivable! Even when I wake up, I am still near to You.
Holy is His Name reminds of the many facets of God’s character (which we find in His names), and it encourages us to meditate on each of them in our quest to know Him more.
Acts 2:21 (VOICE) And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be liberated into God’s freedom and peace.
Psalm 105:1-4 (NIV) Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name; make known among the nations what he has done. Sing to him, sing praise to him; tell of all his wonderful acts. Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice. Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always.
Proverbs 18:10 (TPT) The character of God is a tower of strength, for the lovers of God delight to run into his heart and be exalted on high.
The name of your silk is HaShem (The Name). The colors in it are:
Dark red representing overwhelming love of God
Ruby representing being of immeasurable worth
Burgundy representing belonging to the Lord
Brandy representing the sweetness of His name
Dark gray representing fear of the Lord
Black representing mystery
The scriptures that go with it are:
Proverbs 18:10 (NLT) The name of the Lord is a strong fortress; the godly run to him and are safe.
Deuteronomy 28:58-59 (VOICE)If you don’t carefully obey every word of this law that’s written in this book, if you don’t fear your God’s glorious and awesome name, “Eternal One,” then He will strike you and your descendants with extraordinary plagues that will be widespread and long-lasting, with serious, persistent illnesses.
Psalm 72:19 (VOICE) May His glorious name be blessed forever and the whole earth be filled with His eternal glory! Amen. Amen.
Just before Purim this spring, God reminded me of the importance of looking for His “hidden hand” in our lives. In the whole book of Esther, God isn’t mentioned. There’s also no record of God speaking directly to His people or prophets. However, this doesn’t mean that He wasn’t present, moving, and speaking throughout the events that transpired. In fact, we can see how God strategically moved through different individuals to protect His people from genocide. Continue reading “Seek God’s Hidden Hand”
