Where Does Our Help Come From?

Whom Shall I Fear” by Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Art

One day, I was meditating on how rest can be a powerful weapon in the spiritual realm, and Isaiah 30:15 came to mind, “For this is what Adonai Elohim, the Holy One of Isra’el, says: “Returning and resting is what will save you; calmness and confidence will make you strong —but you want none of this!” I often hear people quoting another translation of this Scripture, “in quietness and confidence is your strength.” While these words are a needed reminder, I couldn’t help but be drawn to the last part of that verse—God’s people resisted the call to return (repent) and rest.

Be My Covenant Defender

Empowered by Love” by Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Art

Psalm 69:9 (TPT) My love for you has my heart on fire! My passion consumes me for your house! Nothing will turn me away, even though I endure all the insults of those who insult you.

Beloved, attune your ear to My heart. Be so consumed with My Word and My standard of righteousness that our desires meld into one. Allow My passion to burn as a fire in your veins, and rise up as My covenant defender. Continue reading “Be My Covenant Defender”

Fear My Name, I Have Redeemed You

“Fathomless God” by Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Art

The Fear of the Lord has many characteristics, promises, variations, and benefits. The awe of giving your reverence, honor, and full attention to the Savior King Jesus is just beautiful. The benefits of surrendering to a Holy God is mind-blowing. There is truly no other God besides Him.

Submit your thoughts and spend time in adoration and fear (awe and wonder) of His name. Listen to Him, and turn your affections to loving and obeying Him. Stand fast by placing your full trust and assurance in Him.

Allow your faith to be strengthened in fearing the name of the Lord —regardless of what you see. Live and walk according to the Spirit in repentance and humility. Fear His Name. Live in One Accord with the mind of Christ, forgiving one another and staying away from all evil. Obey His commandments.

“You are My witnesses I have chosen you. I Am with you. I’m doing a new thing. There is no God beside Me. My blessings are you and your offspring. Take delight in Me as I delight in you. I have called you by My name, and you are mine.

Isaiah 44:6-8 (NKJV) “Thus says the Lord, the King of Israel, And his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts: ‘I am the First and I am the Last; Besides Me there is no God. And who can proclaim as I do? Then let him declare it and set it in order for Me, Since I appointed the ancient people. And the things that are coming and shall come, Let them show these to them. Do not fear, nor be afraid; Have I not told you from that time, and declared it? You are My witnesses. Is there a God besides Me? Indeed there is no other Rock; I know not one.’ ”

“I renew and strengthen you with My righteous right hand. When you seek Me, you find Me. When you pray, I listen and answer in My perfect timing. You are named the priests and servants of God. You are a chosen kingdom of royalty.

“My promise is: instead of shame, I will pour double honor. I will replace confusion with the promise of rejoicing in your portion. In your land, you will possess double. I clothe My children with garments of salvation and robes of righteousness. I cause things that are sown to spring forth a spiritual harvest that is fruitful in due season.

Isaiah 61:6-8 (NKJV) But you shall be named the priests of the Lord, They shall call you the servants of our God. You shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, And in their glory you shall boast. Instead of your shame you shall have double honor, And instead of confusion they shall rejoice in their portion. Therefore in their land they shall possess double; Everlasting joy shall be theirs. “For I, the Lord, love justice; I hate robbery for burnt offering; I will direct their work in truth, And will make with them an everlasting covenant.

Isaiah 43:1 (NKJV) But now, thus says the Lord, who created you, O Jacob, And He who formed you, O Israel: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; You are Mine.

“My people are a crown of glory in My hand, a royal diadem. I rejoice over you, and My rewards are plentiful.”

God delights in us and will be married to our God. He rejoices over us, as we rejoice with him too. His rewards are with him. We are the Redeemed, rescued, people of The Most High God!

Isaiah 62:3-5 (NKJV) You shall also be a crown of glory In the hand of the Lord, And a royal diadem In the hand of your God. You shall no longer be termed Forsaken, Nor shall your land any more be termed Desolate; But you shall be called Hephzibah, and your land Beulah; For-the Lord delights in you, And your land shall be married. For as a young man marries a virgin, So shall your sons marry you; And as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, So shall your God rejoice over you.

Isaiah 59:19-20 (NKJV) So shall they fear the name of the Lord from the west, and His glory from the rising of the sun; when the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him. “The Redeemer will come to Zion, and to those who turn from transgression in Jacob,” says the Lord.

 Proverbs 19:23 (NKJV) The Fear of the Lord leads to life, And he who has it will abide in satisfaction; He will not be visited with evil.

Proverbs 22:4 (NKJV) By humility and the fear of the Lord are riches and honor and life. 

Psalm 33:8-9 (NKJV) Let all the earth fear the Lord let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him for he spoke, and it was done he commanded, and it stood fast. 

Psalms 33:18 (NKJV) Behold, the Eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him, on those who hope in his mercy.

Breakthrough Harvest (Psalm 126)

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 three Prophetic Nuggets based on Psalm 126:3,5-6 (VOICE):

We shook our heads. All of us were stunned— the Eternal has done remarkable things for us. We were beyond happy, beyond joyful. Those who walk the fields to sow, casting their seed in tears, will one day tread those same long rows, amazed by what’s appeared. Those who weep as they walk and plant with sighs Will return singing with joy, when they bring home the harvest.

Praise (Psalm 149)

“Open the Gates with Praise” 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 three Prophetic Nuggets based on Psalm 149:4-6 (TPT):

For he enjoys his faithful lovers. He adorns the humble with his beauty and he loves to give them the victory. His godly lovers triumph in the glory of God, and their joyful praises will rise even while others sleep. God’s high and holy praises fill their mouths, for their shouted praises are their weapons of war!

The first Prophetic Nugget is called “Humble and Yielded.”

Psalm 149:4 (TPT) For he enjoys his faithful lovers. He adorns the humble with his beauty and he loves to give them the victory.

Beloved, I delight to bring victory to those who rejoice in Me. It gives Me immense pleasure to bestow such blessings on those who have held nothing back. Love Me lavishly, sweet one, and without agenda – simply love because I loved you first. 

Focus your heart on Me, and leave the battle plans to Me. Your role is humility – eyes and heart fixed on Me; My role is to be God and all that encompasses including knowing what is best for My children and leading them in that path as they yield. I have you, beloved. 

The second Prophetic Nugget is called “Praises Rise.”

Psalm 149:5 (TPT) His godly lovers triumph in the glory of God, and their joyful praises will rise even while others sleep.

Beloved, let your praises rise. Let them rise both in triumph and in the expectation of it. Let it rise at all times. Your steadfast, joyful praise is an audible banner lifted high – a clear reminder to all of Who I AM: I AM God, the Lord of Hosts, the Mighty One, and I reign. 

Refuse to be silent. Refuse to be distracted. Let your joyful praise come forth like refreshing waters encouraging yourself and all those around you. You know who you are because you know Who I AM. Walk boldly in your identity as a child of Mine. 

The third Prophetic Nugget is called “Steadfast Praise.”

Psalm 149:6 (TPT) God’s high and holy praises fill their mouths, for their shouted praises are their weapons of war!

Beloved, as your praises rise, things begin to shift. As your praises rise, mountains begin to move. Just as a drip of water can change the face of a rock over time, never underestimate the power of your steadfast praise. 

Stay equipped. Hide the word in your heart and raise a banner or lift your voice high or dance before Me, beloved, but do something. Allow the fruit of your faith to pour forth from your heart. 

Your praise changes things. It shifts the atmosphere. It is powerful because I inhabit the praises of My people and I AM mighty beyond expectation or description. So be steadfast in your praise. 

Silk: Batach YHWH (Trust the LORD)

The name of your silk is Batach YHWH (Trust the LORD). The colors in it are:

  • White representing purity
  • Royal blue representing righteousness
  • Pearl shimmer representing light of Christ

The scripture that goes with it is from Psalm 37:3-6 “Trust in the LORD, and do good; dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness. Delight yourself in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him, and he will act. He will bring forth your righteousness as the light, and your justice as the noonday.”

Trust…it is a daily choice, sometimes a minute by minute choice, to trust in Me. Trust will grow as you spend time with Me, in My Word, in prayer, in song, in dance, and in just being with me, relaxed in my presence. Trust that I have your best interest at heart. Trust and believe in My great love for you. Cling to Me, cling to what is good. Chose to trust Me.

The lyrics of “‘Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus” written by Louisa M. R. Stead are connected to this.

Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus, And to take Him at His Word;
Just to rest upon His promise, And to know, Thus says the Lord!

Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him!

How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er. Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus! O for grace to trust Him more!

O how sweet to trust in Jesus, Just to trust His cleansing blood;
And in simple faith to plunge me ’Neath the healing, cleansing flood!

Yes, ’tis sweet to trust in Jesus,

Just from sin and self to cease; Just from Jesus simply taking Life and rest, and joy and peace.

I’m so glad I learned to trust Thee,

Precious Jesus, Savior, Friend; And I know that Thou art with me, Wilt be with me to the end.

From Vasquez Savage Ministries blog archive: These words by Louisa M. R. Stead were said to have been written following her witnessing her husband drowning. According to Louisa Stead, God never left her. She and her daughter always made it through somehow. She learned how sweet it was to trust in Jesus after the death of her husband. Was her husband’s death sweet? No! It certainly was not, but it did reveal to her a very important biblical truth; Christ is enough! Though she was mourning her husband’s death and was left poor, and destitute; she learned that Jesus was enough. Enough to give her rest, enough to give her all the grace she would ever need, and enough to give her peace in a circumstance most would say was tragic. She learned just how sweet it is to trust in Jesus. God took her tragedy and turned it into a life full of mercy and grace.

A Prophetic Nugget from Daily Downloads from Heaven by Meghan Williams is connected to this. It is called “Make Me Your Obsession.”

Psalm 37:3-4 (AMP) Trust [rely on and have confidence] in the Lord and do good; Dwell in the land and feed [securely] on His faithfulness. Delight yourself in the Lord, And He will give you the desires and petitions of your heart.

Beloved, delight in Me. Keep Me as your focus, refusing distraction, and maintaining your gaze toward Me. I AM the author and finisher of your faith. I AM the I AM. I AM faithful. I AM worthy. I AM true. Rest in Me. Rely on Me. Taste and see that I AM good.

Make Me your obsession, your hope, the fulfillment of your dreams. Allow your love for Me – and the ardent nature of your affections – to radiate from your countenance and be apparent for anyone to see. May you be known for your love for Me. Be known as My lovesick one, wholeheartedly and overwhelmingly devoted to Me.

Psalm 37:3-7, 11 (VOICE) Believe in the Eternal, and do what is good— live in the land He provides; roam, and rest in God’s faithfulness. Take great joy in the Eternal! His gifts are coming, and they are all your heart desires! Commit your path to the Eternal; let Him direct you. Put your confidence in Him, and He will follow through with you . He will spread out righteousness for you as a sunrise spreads radiance over the land; He will deliver justice for you into the light of the high sun. Be still. Be patient. Expect the Eternal to arrive and set things right. Don’t get upset when you see the worldly ones rising up the ladder. Don’t be bothered by those who are anchored in wicked ways. But the humble-hearted will inherit the land; they will take pleasure in its peace and enjoy its abundance.

Another Prophetic Nugget from Daily Downloads from Heaven by Meghan Williams is connected to this. It’s called “Look for Me in the Storm.”

Psalm 89:9 (TLB) You rule the oceans when their waves arise in fearful storms; you speak, and they lie still.

Beloved, refuse to be intimidated as the winds and waves rage around you, and look for Me in the eye of the storm. I AM your peace, YHVH Shalom – the Lord your Peace, and I AM always with you. Find your rest in Me.

When the storms come, pause to breathe and regroup. Fix your gaze on Me. Refuse to allow the chaos to mandate your internal landscape. I have given you My peace, none can take it away, so hold it fast and refuse to let go.

Refuse to make room for chaos and confusion. Instead look to Me in the midst of the Storm, for I will guide you with My eye. I will bring order and rest that no circumstance can alter. See clearly, beloved, and let that peace that I have given you radiate out and shift the atmosphere.

You are My carrier of peace. Release it to the world, changing it rather than allowing it to change you. I AM your strength. I AM your joy. I AM your peace. And I AM steadfast.

John 14:27 (NLT) I am leaving you with a gift–peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.

A final Prophetic Nugget from Daily Downloads from Heaven by Meghan Williams is connected to this. It’s called “Carrier of My Peace.”

John 14:27 (AMP) Peace I leave with you; My [perfect] peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be afraid. [Let My perfect peace calm you in every circumstance and give you courage and strength for every challenge].

Beloved, I have endowed you with My peace. It is yours and you walk in the fullness of it. Allow My peace to so saturate you that you carry it like a tangible presence and like a lingering aroma leave it everywhere you go.

You are an overcomer, and you have overcome fear with My peace. Continually shift the atmosphere around you, being intentional to usher in that shalom – the peace that wars against chaos. You are My chosen vessel – a carrier of My glory, My Spirit, the truth of who I AM – share that truth unashamedly and cultivate an atmosphere of peace everywhere you go. Peace, peace, abundant peace.

It has been prayed over and anointed with the Scent of Heaven’s Faithful God, which is used as an acknowledgment that God the Father is faithful. The scriptures that goes with it are:

  • 1 Corinthians 1:9 “God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.”
  • 2 Thessalonians 3:3 “But the Lord is faithful, who will establish you and guard you from the evil one.”
  • Hebrews 10:23 “Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful.”

We pray it blesses you!
