When painting silk, sometimes I am led to pick up the brush and start painting without the slightest idea of what will be manifested. The colors are shown one at a time. Brushstrokes are shown one at a time. I dip the brush into the dye, and I just paint in the flow that I’m being led, still not knowing, still not having the slightest idea what the end result will be.

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…
Kingdom Identity and Honor
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.
The name of your silk is Transformed. The colors in it are:
- Black representing shadow of His wings
- Turquoise representing healing
- Electric blue representing release
- Cayman island green representing flourishing or thriving
- Royal blue representing tehowm (the deep – Psalm 42:7)
- Silver shimmer representing redemption
God of Compassion (2 Corinthians 1:3-5)
This is a series of Prophetic Nuggets from “Daily Downloads from Heaven” by Meghan Williams that are connected by scripture / theme. It is a series of three Prophetic Nuggets based on 2 Corinthians 1:3-5 (VOICE):
All praise goes to God, Father of our Lord Jesus, the Anointed One. He is the Father of compassion, the God of all comfort. He consoles us as we endure the pain and hardship of life so that we may draw from His comfort and share it with others in their own struggles. For even as His suffering continues to flood over us, through the Anointed we experience the wealth of His comfort just the same.
The first Prophetic Nugget is called “Elohei khol-Nechamah (God of all Comfort).”
2 Corinthians 1:3 (VOICE) All praise goes to God, Father of our Lord Jesus, the Anointed One. He is the Father of compassion, the God of all comfort.
Beloved, I AM Elohei khol-Nechamah -God of all Comfort, so trust your heart to Me. I AM keenly aware of the troubles that try you, and I remain by your side – sustaining you – through them all.
So be at peace. Quiet your soul. Trust that the afflictions of this world will pass, but My love remains steadfast and true. Let My love uplift you and carry you as on eagles wings. Let My hand guide you, and let My Spirit comfort you.
The second Prophetic Nugget is called “Find Fellowship with Me.”
2 Corinthians 1:4 (VOICE) He consoles us as we endure the pain and hardship of life so that we may draw from His comfort and share it with others in their own struggles.
Beloved, in the midst of pain, I AM still with you. No hardship will scare Me away. I will use each one to grow you and strengthen your character, if you will yield to Me. Draw comfort from Me. You are not alone.
And remember as you endure the sufferings, that I have endured them as well. And when you encounter betrayal, remember I have encountered it as well. And when you’re ridiculed, misjudged, and persecuted – remember, beloved, I have been too. So draw close to Me, and in the midst of trial, find fellowship with Me.
The third Prophetic Nugget is called “Embrace the Wealth of Comfort.”
2 Corinthians 1:5 (VOICE) For even as His suffering continues to flood over us, through the Anointed we experience the wealth of His comfort just the same.
Beloved, embrace the wealth of comfort I offer. Refuse to stay stuck in pain. Allow Me to guide you through to the other side. There is no shame in grief or in feeling things deeply. Nor is there shame in taking time to pause – in acknowledging your experience. But there comes a moment when it is time to step forward. And just as relearning to walk after a serious injury can be difficult, moving forward after an emotional blow can be equally trying. And yet, you must try. You must carry on.
Resist the urge to wallow when it comes time to step forward. Refuse to give the enemy a toehold. Trust that My strength will sustain you. Trust that My love will uplift you. And trust that I will use all the pain for good purpose; all that was intended to bring devastation, I will use to bring more life. Because I AM the giver of life, and I give it abundantly.
My Love is Unwavering
Numbers 23:19 (NIV) God is not human, that he should lie not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?
Precious child, I have set My love upon you. My love is sure and the most stable truth of all. My heart is not fickle like that of a human, able to be hot one moment and cold the next. I do not grow bored, weary, or impatient. My affections for you do not depend upon how well or how poorly you perform; in fact, you cannot earn what I have already given you freely. And having given you My love, know, dear child, that that love is irrevocable.
I have claimed you as My own and sealed your adoption through the Blood of the Lamb. Every time you stumble and fall, know surely that I will lift you up. I will dust you off, heal your hurts, and help you get your footing again. During the times you come face to face with your weaknesses, turn to me and allow My perfect love to wash over you and strengthen you. My love is always present and available, waiting for you to grasp ahold of it. I will give sureness to your steps again and hold your hand as you continue to walk the path of life. I will never abandon you.
If ever your fears tempt you to question My affections and intentions toward you, resist the urge to run and hide in shame. Instead, remind yourself of Who I Am. I Am your Father. I Am your Redeemer. I Am Faithful. Most of all, I Am love, and My love is unwavering.
2 Corinthians 6:18 (TPT) I will be a true Father to you, and you will be my beloved sons and daughters,” says the Lord Yahweh Almighty.
Romans 8:38-39 (TPT) So now I live with the confidence that there is nothing in the universe with the power to separate us from God’s love. I’m convinced that his love will triumph over death, life’s troubles, fallen angels, or dark rulers in the heavens. There is nothing in our present or future circumstances that can weaken his love. There is no power above us or beneath us—no power that could ever be found in the universe that can distance us from God’s passionate love, which is lavished upon us through our Lord Jesus, the Anointed One!
2 Corinthians 3:12 (TPT) So then, with this amazing hope living in us, we step out in freedom and boldness to speak the truth.
You have been called to be bold for His Glory and His Holy name. Through Christ we have been set free, thus you have been empowered to speak the truth. Being bold doesn’t mean you have to beat others over the head with the truth. Simply stand firm for the truth of who our Heavenly Father is. Your life is the testimony of truth.
When you feel uncertain, grow weary or hopeless, with boldness approach our Heavenly Father. Allow Him to grow your boldness in multiple ways, one of which should be how to pray with boldness. Be persistent to pursue His promises for you. When your heart’s desire aligns with His, He will not deny you.
1 John 5:14 (TPT) Since we have this confidence, we can also have great boldness before him, for if we present any request agreeable to his will, he will hear us.
See the Harvest
Beloved, can you see the harvest? Can you see the fruit that has come forth in your life as you have believed My Word? Each day, you are becoming more conformed to My image as you believe what I have spoken over you. My Word is life, and you have readily received it into your heart. It has taken hold of your mind, and each day it transforms your thoughts so that they come to mirror My own. In this, I am well pleased. Continue reading “See the Harvest”
Time is at Hand
Listen closely, and know time is at hand. Spend your time on things that are of eternal value. Live in-filled with My Holy Spirit. Stay sober-minded and alert. Remember the time you spend with Me counts for eternity, so be aware of how much time you are giving to Me. Spend your time focusing on the essence of who I am. Stir up your faith by reminding yourself that with Me the impossible is possible. My timing may be different from time as you perceive it, but choose to trust Me and focus on Me. As you do, you’ll see My hand at work and be reminded I work all things for My glory and for the good of the Kingdom. Continue reading “Time is at Hand”
Trustworthy to Transform
I am trustworthy. I will not fail you. I am not fickle like man. I do not abandon you, or leave you without hope. It is not in My nature.
My child, look for Me at each step. Make every effort to seek Me. I am not far away from you – I’m closer than you think. It may not feel that way, but don’t go by your feelings, instead turn to the truth of who I am. Continue reading “Trustworthy to Transform”
