I want to remind you that sometimes words are not necessary. I know all of your needs and all of your desires. I know that all you desire the most is to always experience My loving presence upon you!Oh, how you love my presence and my voice!
In the midst of all the great works you are doing for My kingdom, I know that sometimes all you desire is to spend time with Me. Just like a young child desires to be held in the comfort of her Father’s arms, know that I hold you closer than you can ever imagine.
I have you in My heart, cherished and protected. In My heart I hold you close. I sway and rock you to the humming of the sweet lullaby of My heart.
Bask in My love and enjoy My stillness that brings forth joy and peace. Rest in Me as I cover you with My hands and I shelter you under My mantle.I keep you lifted from the dreary darkness of this world, and I give much-needed rest. In My heart, you will always be engulfed in the overflow of My love.
Beloved, hush your thoughts and listen to the melody of My heartbeat. Allow Me to comfort you and give you rest. My love will strengthen you. My love will restore you. My love is more than enough. Let it permeate every cell of your being as I prepare you for greater works for My glory.
Remember, you are always loved, embraced, covered, and protected in My heart. There is no need to rush. Be still in Me. Rest in my love.
God the Father entered into an eternal covenant with His son before the creation of the world. God chose blood covenants (the ultimate and final one being Christ’s sacrifice on the cross) as a way to both relate to us and reveal more of Himself to us. God designed the terms of blood covenant to demonstrate His airtight, immovable faithfulness and love toward us. God shares His heart and plan for us to be restored to relationship with Him. He is a God who loves to reveal more of Himself into our hearts and understanding. He desires for us to know Him more closely. He wants us to know Him intimately.God desired that we would know Him and understand more about His deep and abidinglove for us, gaining insight into just how serious He is about being faithful to us.
Covenants may vary in format, but their essence is the same: a covenant is an intensely loyal bond entered into by two parties, individuals, or groups. An interesting point to note is that a blood covenant is an UNBREAKABLE bond entered into for life. It covers everyone represented by the two parties as well as all their descendants, including those yet unborn.
The terms of the covenant are constructed and then sealed through a series of steps, including:
a ceremony with the exchange of gifts
the exchange of belts and weapons
the pledging of solemn promises
the shedding and mixing of blood
an exchange of names
a covenant meal
a covenant memorial
a covenant scar
While each step in the cutting of covenant is important and brimming with meaning, I only want to highlight two: the exchange of gifts and the exchange of belts and weapons.
In the exchange of gifts, covenant representatives exchanged tunics as a symbol of their now combined goods and assets. This tunic exchange said, in effect, “All I am and all I have is yours. I am at your disposal. All you need to do is ask.”
In the exchange of belts and weapons, the covenant representatives exchange their belts and weapons with one another. This signified a pledge of unending loyalty and that one would fight and protect the other’s interests. In essence, the exchange of belts and weapons said, “I will stand with you, even if you are in the wrong. I am here for you. I will hold nothing back to pledge my loyalty to you—even if it means my death!”
All the steps of the covenant, lead to an understanding—a pledge and unshakable commitment between the two parties. The parties involved become one entity. Their formerly separate interests and lives are now merged into one. Their destinies, purpose, and common interests are now one. Former enemies are now one.
The covenant entered into is airtight and permanent. The covenant love is for the other party rather than for one’s self. True covenant mentality, in its richest and purest form, is God-given and opens the door for us to understand even more how much God loves us.
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 ten Prophetic Nuggets based on Matthew 5:43-48 andbeing a vessel of God’s love.
Matthew 5:43-48 (TPT) “Your ancestors have also been taught ‘Love your neighborsand hate the one who hates you.’ However, I say to you, love your enemy, bless the one who curses you, do something wonderful for the one who hates you,and respond to the very ones who persecute you by praying for them. For that will reveal your identity as children of your heavenly Father. He is kind to all by bringing the sunrise to warm and rainfall to refresh whether a person does what is good or evil. What reward do you deserve if you only love the loveable? Don’t even the tax collectors do that? How are you any different from others if you limit your kindness only to your friends? Don’t even the ungodly do that? Since you are children of a perfect Father in heaven, you are to be perfectlike him.” Continue reading “Life-Changing Love”

Matthew 5:14-16(AMP) “You are the light of [Christ to] the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. 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.”
Ephesians 5:8-9 (TPT) Once your life was full of sin’s darkness, but now you have the very light of our Lord shining through you because of your union with him. Your mission is to live as children flooded with his revelation-light! And the supernatural fruits of his light will be seen in you—goodness, righteousness, and truth. Continue reading “Be the Light”
Come to Him—the living stone—who was rejected by people but accepted by God as chosen and precious. Like living stones, let yourselves be assembled into a spiritual house, a holy order of priests who offer up spiritual sacrifices that will be acceptable to God through Jesus the Anointed. But you are a chosen people, set aside to be a royal order of priests, a holy nation, God’s own; so that you may proclaim the wondrous acts of the One who called you out of inky darkness into shimmering light.
