Breathe

Garden of His Love” by Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Art

Beloved, breathe. Breathe in the atmosphere of heaven, God’s breath of life. Be refreshed by the essence of God’s nature.

Close your eyes, and meditate on the image of Yeshua. Open your spiritual eyes so that you might see Him. See His eyes full of love for you, beloved. With open arms, He welcomes you. 

Hear His voice call your name, “Beloved of Mine.” Feel His embrace as He draws you near His heart. He whispers words of endearment and encouragement in your ear. 

You feel His breath against your cheek as He speaks, “All is well, beloved. All is well. I have gone before you, made the crooked way straight. I am leading you to green pastures with springs of water for you to drink and meadows of flowers with fruit to eat. Come, beloved of Mine, come.”

Silk: Increase

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!

Do Versus Be (Luke 10:38-42)

Come to the River” 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.”

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. Continue reading “Sit with Me”

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.
