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”

Loving Yourself

Invitation to Love (no text version) by Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Art 

Beloved, what I have made is good, and you are included in that creation. It is essential that you both accept and love yourself. Accept yourself as being beautiful. Accept yourself as being worth loving. Accept yourself as you are. Refuse to give conditional love to yourself. Rather overflow with unconditional love knowing that you are a work in progress, and, as you yield to My Spirit, further progress and beauty will take place. Give space for the process.

Kingdom Child

Mark 10:14-15 (AMP) But when Jesus saw this, He was indignant and He said to them, “Allow the children to come to Me; do not forbid them; for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. I assure you and most solemnly say to you, whoever does not receive and welcome the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it at all.”

God loves those who are childlike, full of faith and trust and filled with the light of His love and life. They don’t allow the lies of the enemy to shut them down. They turn their gaze on their Abba Daddy, King of the Universe, and their Shepherd, knowing He guards and protects them, and they move forward into all God has. These Kingdom children know that God delights in their exuberance and passion and play. They know He leads them and protects them, guarding their path and enabling their joyful, playful light of life to come forth and shine – making way for those who have been crushed in spirit to return to Abba Daddy and be restored into their joy-filled, passionate purpose once again.

Plant the Seed

Mark 4:30-32 (NIV) Again he said, “What shall we say the kingdom of God is like, or what parable shall we use to describe it? 31 It is like a mustard seed, which is the smallest of all seeds on earth. 32 Yet when planted, it grows and becomes the largest of all garden plants, with such big branches that the birds can perch in its shade.”

So often we find ourselves in situations where we can’t see how we could possibly have any impact… Well, I encourage you to keep in mind that our purpose is to just plant the seed!

A seed will grow with time into it’s fullness. We should always remember that growth starts at the roots, underneath the surface where it can’t be seen. Trees, flowers, plants all grow at different speed, the same goes for a seed that we are called to plant in someone’s life! We may not get the benefit of reaping it’s harvest BUT we can know for certain that it will take root!

My Power is Ready and Available

Mark 16:18 (TPT) They will be supernaturally protected from snakes and from drinking anything poisonous.  And they will lay hands on the sick and heal them.”

Beloved, be My hands and feet. As My Spirit prompts you, move. Trust that My power is ready and available when you’re operating in My will. Not in your own strength, but in Mine. For I AM able. 

You have nothing to fear as you live submitted to Me, for I AM with you and moving in every circumstance. I AM good and I AM able, so make ready. A move of My Kingdom is afoot.  Continue reading “My Power is Ready and Available”

Healing Oil

Luke 8:43-48 (TPT) In the crowd that day was a woman who had suffered greatly for twelve years from slow bleeding. Even though she had spent all that she had on healers, she was still suffering. Pressing in through the crowd, she came up behind Jesus and touched the tassel of his prayer shawl. Instantly her bleeding stopped and she was healed.

You have grasped at the hem of My garment, and now flows forth the healing oil of YHVH Rapha. What was once broken in you is now healed. Arise and go forth, Beloved. Fly with might, armed for battle with the new wings I have given you. Indeed, your rebirth has come through many trials and tribulations. You are now a new creation, made in My image and likeness. Therefore, walk boldly in the power of My Spirit and in My authority. I send you into the world to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy.

Be Filled and Satisfied in Me {Moments with God}

{my heart whispers} Father, you are worth it all. Willingly I lay down all I have and all I am at your feet. I surrender everything into Your hands because I trust you completely (or at least my heart desires to do so). I refuse to hold on or try to control things from a place of fear or doubt. I know Your perfect love casts out all fear and I know you are good. I choose to believe. I refuse to let circumstances, emotions, or any fleshly evidence convince me otherwise. I choose to trust in You. 

{He gently replies} Beloved, all you have is Mine – freely given. Be strong, and resist the urge to judge My goodness based on earthly situations. Choose to know Me. Delight yourself in Me, not because you know that I will then give you the desires of your heart, but because I AM worth delighting in. Operate from a pure heart. As you have surrendered all to Me, now make Me your all. Be filled and be satisfied in Me. 

Mark 10:28 (VOICE) Peter: Master, we have left behind everything we had to follow You.

YHVH Shalom (the Lord your Peace)

Mark 4:39 (VOICE) He got up, shouted words into the wind, and commanded the waves. Jesus: That’s enough! Be still! And immediately the wind died down to nothing, the waves stopped.

Beloved, I AM YHVH Shalom, the Lord your peace, the One who calms the storm. I AM the giver of peace and I AM peace itself. Rest in Me. 

Beloved, I make no promises that the winds and waves won’t come. Instead I promise I AM with you to calm the waves – whether those be inner or outer – to bring peace. So trust in Me and wait, for I AM good and I AM faithful. Rest in Me. 

Hosanna

Psalm 118:25 (TPT) O God, please come and save us again; bring us your breakthrough-victory!

Beloved, cry out, “Hosanna!” Cry out for salvation of the lost, for the broken and weary to come home. Refuse to grow weary in your intercession, and be relentless in your pleas. For I will not turn a deaf ear to your petitions, nor will I neglect to answer your call.

Beloved, cry out, “Hosanna to the Son of David!” Give honor to the One who was slain. Rejoice in His holy sacrifice, and the victory it has already won. Call out “Hosanna in the highest!” Welcome the heavenly hosts to join your praise. Rejoice for salvation is won – it is coming, and, lo, it is already here. Continue reading “Hosanna”

Fragrant Offering

Luke 7:36 -38 (NKJV) Then one of the Pharisees (Simon) asked Him to eat with him. And He went to the Pharisee’s house, and sat down to eat. And behold, a woman in the city who was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at the table in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster flask of fragrant oil, and stood at His feet behind Him weeping; and she began to wash His feet with her tears, and wiped them with the hair of her head; and she kissed His feet and anointed them with the fragrant oil. 

Mark 14:4-6, 9 (NKJV) [emphasis added] But there were some (His disciples [Matthew 26:7], Judas Iscariot Simon’s son [John 12:4], and the Pharisee who had invited Him [Luke 7:39]) who were indignant among themselves, and said, “Why was this fragrant oil wasted? For it might have been sold for more than three hundred denarii and given to the poor.” And they criticized her sharply. But Jesus said, “Let her alone. Why do you trouble her? She has done a good work for Me…Assuredly, I say to you, wherever this gospel is preached in the whole world, what this woman has done will also be told as a memorial to her. 

It is first interesting to note and understand the significance of where Mary was on her journey to where Jesus was. I believe it to be significant to the journey your heart has taken. Simon’s name means “listening, to be heard, reputation. His home was in Bethany (which means “house of dates” or “house of misery“) and Bethany was right at the Mount of Olives. The Mount of Olives was and still is one of the most well-known Jewish cemeteries in Israel. Bethany was next to the road that led from Jericho (means “Place of Fragrance“) to Jerusalem (means “foundation/possession of peace“…a place of completeness and wholeness).
