Silk: Steadfast and True

The name of your silk is Steadfast and True. The colors in it are:

  • White representing purity
  • Golden yellow representing joy
  • Pale yellow representing gentle touch
  • Soft gold representing radiance
  • Dark Amber representing glory of His presence
  • Gold shimmer representing divine light

 

The scriptures that go with it are:

  • Hebrews 11:11 (AMP) “By faith even Sarah herself received the ability to conceive [a child], even [when she was long] past the normal age for it, because she considered Him who had given her the promise to be reliable and true [to His word].
  • James‬ ‭2:23-24‬ ‭(AMP‬‬) And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “ABRAHAM BELIEVED GOD, AND THIS [faith] WAS CREDITED TO HIM [by God] AS RIGHTEOUSNESS and AS CONFORMITY TO HIS WILL,” and he was called the friend of God. You see that a man (believer) is justified by works and not by faith alone [that is, by acts of obedience a born-again believer reveals his faith].
  • Exodus 34:34-35 (NLT) But whenever he went into the Tent of Meeting to speak with the Lord, he would remove the veil until he came out again. Then he would give the people whatever instructions the Lord had given him, and the people of Israel would see the radiant glow of his face. So he would put the veil over his face until he returned to speak with the Lord.

The commentary from the Voice translation’s 1 Samuel 1 is connected to this.

The story of Samuel begins quietly, not with a great warrior coming onto the scene, but with the faithful prayer of a woman who wants to be a mother. The underlying message of the books of Samuel is, as in many other places in the Bible, that faith and trust in God are more important than any trust we place in human beings—even powerful human beings. Hannah’s prayers for a child, her absolute faith in God’s plan, and her willingness to be a part of it however she can, resonate as the kings and warriors begin to enter the stage. Without her faith, there can be no story.

In the same way, we must stand steadfast in our faith, and trust that God is at work regardless of what we experience with our natural senses. He is the God of the impossible. We dare not limit Him with our preconceived notions of what will happen for His ability and miraculous working power far surpasses even our wildest imaginations. So we must rest in our faith that He is good and He is God, and remember He is worth praising regardless of our circumstance.

A Prophetic Nugget from “Daily Downloads from Heaven” by Meghan Williams is connected to this. It’s called “Cling and Sing.”

Psalm 118:14 (VOICE) He is my strength, and He is the reason I sing; He has been there to save me in every situation.

Beloved, praise Me in every situation. I AM your strength. I AM El Maowz (God your strength). Allow Me to strengthen you, beloved, regardless of circumstances. Praise Me. Let joy pour forth from deep in your soul because I AM worthy. Let your songs of love be a victory cry that you refuse to waver, that you trust Me implicitly.

I AM Yeshua (your salvation). My hand is extended to you, beloved. Take hold. Cling to Me. I AM strong and I will strengthen. We will stand fast together. The enemy cannot stand against us so cling and sing. Cling and sing, beloved. Your deliverance is here.

2 Samuel 22:33 (NKJV) God [is] my strength [and] power, And He makes my way perfect.

A final Prophetic Nugget from “Daily Downloads from Heaven” by Meghan Williams is connected to this. It’s called “Let My Touch on Your Life Testify.”

Psalm 103:5 (AMPC) Who satisfies your mouth [your necessity and desire at your personal age and situation] with good so that your youth, renewed, is like the eagle’s [strong, overcoming, soaring]!

Beloved, allow My word to satisfy you as the choicest meat and richest honey. And My Spirit to refresh and restore you. Be saturated and rejuvenated in My presence. Allow Me to buoy you – lifting and strengthening you – you are an overcomer!

Let My touch on your life testify to My goodness, announcing to the world that I AM fulfilling, revitalizing, and sustaining. Let My joy radiate from your face that the lightness of your countenance might attest to My love for My children. Let your expectation of good cause you to shine like a beacon of hope in the darkness, for I AM good and I relish delighting Myself in you.

It has been prayed over and anointed with the Scent of Heaven’s Radiant Light. The scripture that goes with this oil is Isaiah 60:1 (AMP) “Arise [from the depression and prostration in which circumstances have kept you–rise to a new life]! Shine (be radiant with the glory of the Lord), for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you!”

Deeper meaning of this oil shares that the Lord’s heart is for His light to both shine on us and through us. 1 Thessalonians 5:5 says Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day and Psalm 89:15 says we are blessed when we walk in the light of [His] countenance.

We pray it blesses you!

The Weapon of Rest

“Faithful Victory” – by Meghan Williams, Dyed4you Art

Beloved, the weapons of war I have given you are mighty and unlike anything of this world. I call you this day to take another look in your arsenal for a weapon that is often overlooked and undervalued—the weapon of rest. Yes, there are times when you need to exercise your faith in an active, forceful manner. However, there are some wars that can only be won through quietness and confidence, the times when I call you to simply rest and trust in My Word. Continue reading “The Weapon of Rest”

Prepare Yourself in Him

Be Still” by Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Art

{hearing} You can’t be prepared for all of it, so, prepare yourself in Me.

With the way our world is and our current reality, there is a lot of fear, a lot of worrying, a lot of opinions floating around, a ton of emotions, incredible division, and a lot of speculation as to what is happening from a biblical perspective. There is no way for us to really look ahead and prepare for what is to come. I think it’s fair to say there is no telling what on earth is ahead.  Continue reading “Prepare Yourself in Him”

Trust Me to Lead the Way

“Quest for Wisdom” by Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Art

Beloved, at times the way forward may appear a bit foggy. Remember, you’re not alone. Take My hand, trust Me to lead the way. As your eyes begin to focus on Me, you look beyond your ability—fear is removed as joy takes its place. 

Ephesians 3:20 (TPT) “Never doubt God’s mighty power to work in you and accomplish all this. He will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination! He will outdo them all, for his miraculous power constantly energizes you.” 

 

Cherish Him

“Fervent Passion” by Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Art

Galatians 2:20 (KJV) I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

Daily we should die to ourselves so that we live with Christ. The flesh is weak, but the spirit is strong. Whenever doubt and fear try to sneak in, we can always rely on Holy Spirit to strengthen us and lift us up as long as we’re willing vessels.

So often we put unrealistic pressure on ourselves only to get discouraged when we don’t accomplish what we thought we had to. He died for us so that we can simply trust Him to guide and not us trying to do God’s job.

Love Him and trust Him blindly, like a child trusts their parents. Even when you stumble, know that He’s right there brushing the dust off your clothes, smiling at you and knowing that you want to make Him proud. So let’s have grace on ourselves and continue to cherish Christ’s sacrifice for us—because it is the most beautiful love story there could ever be!

Peace Be Still

“Place of Rest” by Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Art
A thousand failures bombard my mind one after another. Every failure. Every sin.  Every disappointment. Every rejection. They sound like a raging ocean, a tumult of waves crashing in my mind, one after another, and I feel as though I am drowning. There is so much noise. I can’t find any peace. I wonder how long this is going to last because I just don’t think I can take anymore. I sink to my knees in despair, and then You are there standing in front of me.

He stoops down in front me, “I do not see you as a mistake or a failure. I see you as someone who strives every day to be better than you were the day before. But I need you to understand something—that doesn’t mean you are not good enough right now. I don’t love you any less right now. In fact, I don’t think I could love you more than I already do. Trust Me to love you exactly the way you are at this very moment. When I said I wanted all of you, I meant all of you, mess included.”

Abba speaks gently to me, “Who is it that calms the storms and the seas? Who is it that stops the earth from quaking? Is it not I? Who is it that set the stars in the sky? Was it not I who named every single one? Who told the mountains to rise from the earth?  Who is it that told the rivers to divide the lands? Is it not I? Who is it that created man, and woman, and all other life? Is it not I? All of creation was brought into existence at the work of My hands, and this includes you, little one.”

Abba stands up and extends His hand to me, “Reach out and take My hand. Allow Me to mend your heart. Allow me to calm the storms raging in your mind. Allow Me to be your Light in dark places. Allow Me to restore your true reflection.  All I have to say is, ‘Peace! Be still.’ Trust that I am your peace, your shalom. Trust Me to lead you in the way you should go. Trust Me to help you stand. Trust Me to love you. Trust Me, little one. Trust Me.”

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!

The End from the Beginning

His Gift of Life by Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Art

During a season when a dear friend was in hospice care and I was in ongoing prayer for him, Father woke me up one night with these words, “I know your first breath and your last breath.” I immediately understood He was reminding me that I didn’t need to fear because He was in control. And even more, I sensed He was reminding me that death wasn’t the last step, for He has won the victory over the grave. He guides us along life’s path. I sensed Him assuring me that He knows the beginning from the end and that the knowledge of that should fill me with comfort. As I continued to press into what I was sensing, the following word came forth.

“I am the Creator, the One who saw you in womb. I crafted you the way you are. I alone know the exact number of your days. Take courage in that fact no man knows but Me. I was there when you breathed in your first breath as a newborn child, and I will be with you as you take your last. My gaze is ever upon you. You are always in my sight pattern.  My heart leans into you, My child, for you are vital to Me.

“Take heart as you let go of loved ones on this earth, knowing I am forever with them. It is not darkness at the end of the journey, it is just an instant from earth into My loving arms.  I await the moment when we can look at each other, face to face. And I will marvel as you explore the wonder of Me as we enjoy true communion uninhibited by your earthly body. 

“Don’t be afraid, I was present the moment you caught your first breath of air on this earth, and I will be attentive to you as you take your last. You are Mine, so there is nothing to dread. It’s a simple step into My arms. I have not left you to navigate this earthly realm alone; My comforter (Holy Spirit) is on the scene, to guide you directly to Me. 

“Take courage as your loved ones leave this earth. For as they step into eternity, they are more alive now than ever before. They have complete freedom. Yes, you grieve as you miss the person they were, but imagine how they are embracing this new discovery and finally ridding themself of human frailty. Indeed a celebration party goes on when one of My children arrives home. This is truly home. Remember this as you learn to let them go. Have your memories and take time to grieve, but know that better days are ahead and soon you will meet them again. Everyone has an appointed time. 

“There is so much more than the natural world. The spiritual realm is beyond what your human mind can comprehend. You see glimpses of it now and then, but the picture is not yet revealed. So much more awaits you, My child. Take care to seek those treasures that last, not the ones that rust. Yes, it’s good to take care of the natural body, but your primary focus is on the spiritual world. Exercise those spiritual senses. Spend time with Me so that, at the end of your time on earth, we can already be intimately acquainted.”

Psalm 39:5-6 (CJB) “Make me grasp, Adonai, what my end must be, what it means that my days are numbered; let me know what a transient creature I am. You have made my days like handbreadths; for you, the length of my life is like nothing.” Yes, everyone, no matter how firmly he stands, is merely a puff of wind. (Selah)

Psalm 139:16 (CJB) Your eyes could see me as an embryo, but in your book all my days were already written; my days had been shaped before any of them existed.

Job 14:5 (CJB) Since his days are fixed in advance, the number of his months is known to you, and you have fixed the limits which he can’t cross;
