Sit with Me

“Come Away” by Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Art

Put down the phone, the TV remote, and put the games way. Block out the distractions, and sit with Me. Just sit with Me and hear all I have to say to you. I want to tell you how much I love you, and I want to tell you all about the plans I have for you. However, you are always so busy, and sometimes you are busy doing nothing.

Do Versus Be (Luke 10:38-42)

“A Place to Tarry” by Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Art

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 six Prophetic Nuggets based on a story of Mary and Martha in Luke 10.

Luke 10:38-42 (TPT) As Jesus and the disciples continued on their journey, they came to a village where a woman welcomed Jesus into her home. Her name was Martha and she had a sister named Mary. Mary sat down attentively before the Master, absorbing every revelation he shared. But Martha became exasperated by finishing the numerous household chores in preparation for her guests, so she interrupted Jesus and said, “Lord, don’t you think it’s unfair that my sister left me to do all the work by myself? You should tell her to get up and help me.” The Lord answered her, “Martha, my beloved Martha. Why are you upset and troubled, pulled away by all these many distractions? Are they really that important? Mary has discovered the one thing most important by choosing to sit at my feet. She is undistracted, and I won’t take this privilege from her.”

The first Prophetic Nugget is called “Welcome Me.”

Luke 10:38-39 (TPT) As Jesus and the disciples continued on their journey, they came to a village where a woman welcomed Jesus into her home. Her name was Martha and she had a sister named Mary…

Beloved, the first step to intimacy is creating room for it to occur. Just as a couple cannot experience intimacy if they never spend time alone together or are constantly allowing interruptions to disturb them, so we cannot experience an intimate relationship if you do not make room for Me.

Welcome Me, beloved. Invite Me to tarry with you just as I’ve invited you to dwell with Me. In life you have many choices of where to spend your time. Choose Me. Welcome Me. Then keep welcoming Me. It is not a one-time occurrence, but rather an ongoing relationship. So create the space, make room, and abide with Me.

The second Prophetic Nugget is called “A Journey of Discovery.”

Luke 10:39 (TPT) Mary sat down attentively before the Master, absorbing every revelation he shared.

Beloved, find your place at My feet. Cuddle in close, and abide with Me. You cannot rush “quality time,” for it occurs in the plethora of moments intentionally devoted to one another. Those key moments are experienced, but cannot be forced or manufactured. 

Devote yourself to Me. Devote time and attention to cultivating relationship with Me. Spend time in the Word reading about Me. Choose to know Me as I have chosen to know you. I invite you to a journey of discovery as you spend your time with Me. 

The third Prophetic Nugget is called “Place of Overflow.”

Luke 10:40 (TPT) But Martha became exasperated by finishing the numerous household chores in preparation for her guests, so she interrupted Jesus and said, “Lord, don’t you think it’s unfair that my sister left me to do all the work by myself? You should tell her to get up and help me.”

Beloved, whatever you do, do with love. For the heart of the giver matters as much as the act itself. Sow what you sow with joy. Serve as you serve with love. Be generous from your place of overflow. 

If you have no overflow to pour from, be intentional to pause and find a place of rest. Be refreshed in My presence. Refuse to allow yourself to be like an earthen vessel that becomes cracked and dried. Saturate yourself in Me. Then give generously from your surplus.

The fourth Prophetic Nugget is called “Currency of Time.”

Luke 10:41 (TPT) The Lord answered her, “Martha, my beloved Martha. Why are you upset and troubled, pulled away by all these many distractions? Are they really that important?

Beloved, pause to ponder what keeps you from Me. Are they things that are truly important? And if not, what need or desire are they filling? Is it one I can fulfill? There is no shame in having activities in your life, for I AM with you even as you “go and do”; however, it’s easy to be drawn away from the things that truly matter by fruitless, time-killing activities, or things of high urgency, but low importance. 

Each moment of your life is a gift, and only I know the number of your days. So spend your currency of time wisely and intentionally. Moments of silly fun can be beautifully refreshing, and yet if that is the fullness of your life, it’s like dining on cotton candy alone. It lacks in substance and sustenance. So choose wisely, for the days are short, and time “wasted” on Me is never wasted. So press in, beloved, and find your life in Me.

The fifth Prophetic Nugget is called “Choose the Better Part.”

Luke 10:42 (TPT) Mary has discovered the one thing most important by choosing to sit at my feet…

Beloved, dwell with Me. For to taste the sweet nectar of intimacy requires first partaking in the fruit. Make our time together a priority. Even if all you have available are stolen moments – find them. In doing so, you demonstrate your priorities. Refuse to let the busyness of life keep you away, for there will always be something or someone calling for your time.

Choose the better part: time with Me. For in My presence you find necessary refreshing for your soul. Indeed My love will look forward to you, and that joy then brings you strength. Indeed time with Me is vital to your well-being, so make it a priority. I AM calling, beloved. Come and dwell with Me.

The sixth Prophetic Nugget is called “Tarry with Me.”

Luke 10:42 (TPT) Mary has discovered the one thing most important by choosing to sit at my feet. She is undistracted, and I won’t take this privilege from her.”

Beloved, I AM not one to play cruel games. I will not draw you in to suddenly spurn you, nor cause you to trust only to desert or humiliate you. I AM faithful and I AM true. When you choose Me, I stand with you, and I will not turn away nor turn you away.

So tarry with Me. Give Me your undivided attention. Let Me love on you and we can share the deep things of the heart. If you want to be with Me, I will make sure you are able to be. For you are never too much for Me. You’re exactly as I’ve made you – beautiful in every way, and you’ve captivated My heart. So tarry with Me.

Melek Kabowd (Psalm 24)

 

“Fire of His Presence” by Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Art

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 six Prophetic Nuggets based on Psalm 24’s Melek Kabowd (King of Glory).

Psalm 24:3-10 (TPT) Who, then, ascends into the presence of the Lord? And who has the privilege of entering into God’s Holy Place? Those who are clean—whose works and ways are pure, whose hearts are true and sealed by the truth, those who never deceive, whose words are sure. They will receive the Lord’s blessing and righteousness given by the Savior-God. They will stand before God, for they seek the pleasure of God’s face, the God of Jacob. Pause in his presence So wake up, you living gateways! Lift up your heads, you ageless doors of destiny! Welcome the King of Glory, for he is about to come through you. You ask, “Who is this Glory-King?” The Lord, armed and ready for battle, the Mighty One, invincible in every way! So wake up, you living gateways, and rejoice! Fling wide, you ageless doors of destiny! Here he comes; the King of Glory is ready to come in. You ask, “Who is this King of Glory?” He is the Lord of Victory, armed and ready for battle, the Mighty One, the invincible commander of heaven’s hosts! Yes, he is the King of Glory! Pause in his presence

The first Prophetic Nugget is called “Choose Me.”

Psalm 24:3-4 (TPT) Who, then, ascends into the presence of the Lord? And who has the privilege of entering into God’s Holy Place? Those who are clean—whose works and ways are pure, whose hearts are true and sealed by the truth, those who never deceive, whose words are sure.

Beloved, entering into deep fellowship with Me is something available to all. It simply requires a choice. Choosing Me. Choosing purity over that which would create separation. Choosing truth over lies that would draw you away. Choosing pursuit of Me over distractions. No one – not even Me, likes to be marginalized and given the dregs of time. True intimacy is cultivated, not demanded.

I AM not one to be manipulated or controlled. I do not appreciate demands to deliver a specific outcome as if I were a genie in a bottle. I AM God. Yield, beloved. Choose Me, and then yield. That is when you begin to receive the overwhelming blessings of revelation and intimacy that I have for you. So make the decision, make Me a priority, and choose Me.

The second Prophetic Nugget is called “Enter In.

Psalm 24:4-5 (TPT) Those who are clean—whose works and ways are pure, whose hearts are true and sealed by the truth, those who never deceive, whose words are sure. They will receive the Lord’s blessing and righteousness given by the Savior-God.

Beloved, enter in to My blessing. Enter in to greater intimacy with Me. A gift awaits before you, and all of heaven watches with bated breath to see what you’ll choose. Will you choose to go deeper? Or will you satisfy your heart’s longings with the world’s tasteless fare?

Behold, I AM before you with My hand extended in invitation, so grab hold. No matter what depth of relationship we already have, there’s always further mysteries to explore, for I AM Gelah Raz – the Revealer of Mysteries. So take My hand and enter in to the more I have awaiting you.

The third Prophetic Nugget is called “Pause in My Presence.

Psalm 24:6 (TPT) They will stand before God, for they seek the pleasure of God’s face, the God of Jacob. Pause in his presence

Beloved, pause in My presence. As the world keeps pressing in, be still and feel Me with you. For when you seek My face, I shall not withhold Myself from you. So stand before Me, and in stillness bask in the glory of My gaze.

Just as the sun’s rays warm and reinvigorate you, so My presence fills you with that pervasive glow of warmth that enlivens and renews. So stand and receive. May you reflect the glow of My countenance, and in turn may it shift those around you as well.

The fourth Prophetic Nugget is called “Melek Kabowd (King of Glory).

Psalm 24:7-8 (TPT) So wake up, you living gateways! Lift up your heads, you ageless doors of destiny! Welcome the King of Glory, for he is about to come through you. You ask, “Who is this Glory-King?” The Lord, armed and ready for battle, the Mighty One, invincible in every way! 

Beloved, see Me for who I AM. When you doubt Me, you are showing that you aren’t seeing Me rightly. For no one who truly knew Me would doubt that I AM more than able to move on behalf of My children. And no one who truly knew Me could believe I’d turn a deaf ear to their cries – to your cries. 

Who am I? I AM Melek Kabowd – the King of glory. I AM more than enough and greater than you know. I AM also keenly in tune with everything that has to do with My children – every thought, every dream, every desire, every need – I know them all. And I AM more than able. Trust in Me.

The fifth Prophetic Nugget is called “Stay Ready.

Psalm 24:9 (TPT) So wake up, you living gateways, and rejoice! Fling wide, you ageless doors of destiny! Here he comes; the King of Glory is ready to come in.

Beloved, be alert. Be ready. Be watchful because I AM about to move in ways you won’t want to miss. Rejoice and give praise for that which is to come. You know Me, and you know My character. I AM a miracle-working God, so keep your eyes open and attention fixed.

Beloved, you were created for such a time as this. Expand your expectations and make room in your heart for God-sized plans. For My plans are not the plans of men, for My ways are not your ways. So think bigger, think differently, and stay ready.

The sixth Prophetic Nugget is called “Eternal One.

Psalm 24:10 (TPT) You ask, “Who is this King of Glory?” He is the Lord of Victory, armed and ready for battle, the Mighty One, the invincible commander of heaven’s hosts! Yes, he is the King of Glory! Pause in his presence

Beloved, all of heaven is at My command. Nothing is too difficult for Me. The enemy may plot and plan, but whatever the fight, whatever the battle, know that I AM the victorious One. Eternal and invincible. Nothing and no one can stand against Me.

Take shelter in Me, for I AM your strong defense, so rest in Me. See Me as I AM, beloved – high and lifted up. No god above Me, nor man, nor creature. I AM the Eternal One – Melek Kabowd (King of Glory) is Me.

God’s Radiant Countenance (Numbers 6)

At the end of Numbers 6, we find what is referred to as the “Aaronic Blessing.” In the Voice translation it reads, “The Eternal One bless and keep you. May He make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you. The Eternal lift up His countenance to look upon you and give you peace.” (Numbers 6:24-26) What we see in this blessing, is the radical impact of the face and countenance of God.
