Run the Race (Philippians 3:12-16)

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 four Prophetic Nuggets based on Running the Race (Philippians 3).

Philippians 3:12-16 (TPT) I admit that I haven’t yet acquired the absolute fullness that I’m pursuing, but I run with passion into his abundance so that I may reach the purpose that Jesus Christ has called me to fulfill and wants me to discover. I don’t depend on my own strength to accomplish this; however I do have one compelling focus: I forget all of the past as I fasten my heart to the future instead. I run straight for the divine invitation of reaching the heavenly goal and gaining the victory-prize through the anointing of Jesus. So let all who are fully mature have this same passion, and if anyone is not yet gripped by these desires, God will reveal it to them. And let us all advance together to reach this victory-prize, following one path with one passion.

The first Prophetic Nugget is called “Run with Persistence.

Philippians 3:12 (TPT) I admit that I haven’t yet acquired the absolute fullness that I’m pursuing, but I run with passion into his abundance so that I may reach the purpose that Jesus Christ has called me to fulfill and wants me to discover.

Beloved, run the race with passion. Anything worth doing is worth doing well. And yet as you seek excellence, extend grace to yourself when you fall short. Far better to dust yourself off and move forward, than to get waylaid by frustration and condemnation.

It is by grace that you are saved, and for love you give your best. Celebrate each step along the way, for the trials and the victories all serve a purpose. So run the race with excellence, but even more so, run with persistence.

The second Prophetic Nugget is called “Steadfastly Onward.”

Philippians 3:13 (TPT) I don’t depend on my own strength to accomplish this; however I do have one compelling focus: I forget all of the past as I fasten my heart to the future instead.

Beloved, remember that you do not run alone. I AM YHVH Shammah – the Lord is present, and I AM with you through it all. Resist the urge to rely on your own strength, and instead lean on Me. For I AM fully able to support you through every test and trial. 

Keep your eyes fixed on Me, and your focus on what’s ahead. Refuse to be distracted by disappointments or the things of old. Instead move steadfastly onward as you walk hand-in-hand with Me. Trust Me to guide and uphold you as you remain focused on the path ahead.

The third Prophetic Nugget is called “Intentional Focus.

Philippians 3:14 (TPT) I run straight for the divine invitation of reaching the heavenly goal and gaining the victory-prize through the anointing of Jesus.

Beloved, be singularly focused on your eternal prize. For as you focus on that destination, your journey will align to the best path. Refuse to be distracted by obstacles that seem to hinder your way. For what you focus on, you make room for. So be intentional to focus on the goal ahead rather than that which will lead you astray. 

As the eyes of your heart stay fixed, your footsteps will not wander. So may your journey be steady and steadfast, and may your gaze be ever true.

The fourth Prophetic Nugget is called “Simply Walk.”

Philippians 3:15-16 (TPT) So let all who are fully mature have this same passion, and if anyone is not yet gripped by these desires, God will reveal it to them. And let us all advance together to reach this victory-prize, following one path with one passion.

Beloved, the steadfastness of your purpose marks your maturity. For a child’s attention is constantly fluttering from one experiential feast to the next, but the one who has grown and learned life’s lessons knows it is often the things most easily overlooked that benefit from our attention.

Yield your plans to Me and continue on with purpose. Remember your walk with Me is more like a marathon than a sprint. Though your zeal may entice you to do and see and experience everything at once, therein lies the way to burnout. Rather be steady and yield the pace to Me. Allowing Me to bring each revelation and experience in exactly the right moment. So be steadfast, beloved, and simply walk with Me in love.

Time is at Hand

Faithful and True by Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Art

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”

In Gratitude is Strength (Nehemiah 8:10)

Embrace Gratitude – Dyed4you Art

In a recent Daily Downloads from Heaven, God surprised me by naming it “Let Gratitude Build Your Strength.” I had to pause to assess whether I believed that or not – not that I’d think gratitude was bad, but that it actually brought strength was a new concept for me. This Prophetic Nugget which is based on Habakkuk 3:17-19 (AMP) reads: Continue reading “In Gratitude is Strength (Nehemiah 8:10)”

Speak Life (Ezekiel 37)

James 3:9-11 (VOICE) Ironically this same tongue can be both an instrument of blessing to our Lord and Father and a weapon that hurls curses upon others who are created in God’s own image. One mouth streams forth both blessings and curses. My brothers and sisters, this is not how it should be. Does a spring gush crystal clear freshwater and moments later spurt out bitter salt water?

Beloved, would you be a vessel for darkness? And yet the temptation to speak the things of darkness into existence is strong, but you are stronger. So refuse to give in to bitterness and anger, jealousy and hatred, greed and destruction. Look to the root that wants to bear such fruit and invite Me to move. Then as you trust My sovereignty, watch as I bring forth beauty from ashes and give joy for mourning. Continue reading “Speak Life (Ezekiel 37)”

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”
