You Matter! Honored!

A prophet is not without honor except in his own town, among his relatives and in his own home – Mark 6:4

Familiarity breeds contempt”. “The Cambridge dictionary explains it this way, that “if you know someone very well you stop respecting them because you have seen all of their bad qualities

This is what causes frictions in relationship. Jesus Christ experienced it in His home town. The people that knew him intimately, that have lived with him could not recognize the power at work in him. They could not benefit from it either.

Isaiah 43:4

Therefore, what you are experiencing is not strange to you. Your closest relationship, and those that know you casually may not see your worth as a being. Your genuineness, love, and virtues, may not be appreciated.

You speak wisdom and truth, speaks justice, peace, fairness, kindness, give wise counsel, and it is overlooked or ignored. It is a natural phenomenon summed up in “Familiarity breeds contempt”

I want you to know:

The unbelief of Jesus’s hometown does not negate or reduce the effect of His grace, love, and power to work wonders in the lives of many others of His days. Mark 6:13

Likewise you friends, you matter so much in many ways to God, and to all that have had, and will have the honor of being blessed by you. Christ Jesus for example did the ultimate for you.

You are saved by grace! Ephesians 2:8

You are a sign and a wonder to all! Isaiah 8:18

You are a city set on a hill that cannot be hidden! Matthew 5:14

You are the head and not the tail! Deuteronomy 28:13

You are speaking and foreigners cower before you! Psalms 18:43-45

Your voice heard in the uttermost ! Romans 10:18

And ……

……

You matter and you are honored so much friends!

This very month, I want you to have that confidence. Meditate on these scriptures, let the Holy Spirit breath on it and give it room to build you up from within! Walk with a swag 🙂

You really do matter and Jesus is counting on you.

Happy New Month Everyone!

Meant To Shine! Sparkle You Should!

I am a city set on a hill, I will not be hidden! I am a royal diadem, treasured and valued.  Declare so friends!

The enemy of your shine and mine, have been going to and fro, throwing obstacles here and there to deter us, hoping to cover up our glow, make us self-conscious and deceive us that our shine is blocking others glow. So we taper it down a little, and then a little until we don’t even recognize ourselves.

Kick that thought out of your mind. The thought that you may be casting a shadow on another, minimizing yourself in other to be “normal”, to fit in. Get it straight, treasures are not normal, you are not meant to fit in, you are meant to stand out. Treasures, jewels are worn on occasion for all to see! That is who you are! You carry the radiant glory and presence of God.

You are not normal, you are uniquely created to be who you are for every occasion! A light in the dark! Oh, how you shine even in those dark places! In the desert sun with a torn garment, under the element without covering, yet regal, glowing, and radiant! Moses, Joseph, Esther, Ruth, …………., Jessica, Amanda, Lindsey, Lisa, Beth, Avril, Martha, Mary, Janet, Irene, Deborah, Adenike, Ola, Olu, Seun, Abigail, Morgan, Joan, Miriam,……… Josephine! Put in your name! Arise shine for your light has come!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

meant to shine

Wasteland? Barren land? Backside of the desert?

A wasteland? A barren land? Backside of the desert? Is that what you think? Is that where you are at? Are you sure? Really!!!! Could it be your carnal mind perspective? Okay, it’s your unbelieving heart perspective! Is that better?

Well, heavens perspective is that you are at a place where your spirit is thriving! You are at a place where you can download from heavens freeway. You are at a place where you can hear the inaudible. You are at a place where you can see the invincible. You are at a place where God’s power and presence is  made manifest in you. You are at a place where your five loaves of bread and two fishes are feeding thousands – Mark 6:30-44

a-woman-of-faith

Will you open your eyes and see!!! Your presence makes the wicked uncomfortable. Can’t you see? Your joy in the midst of storms is revealing the peace of God and the heart of the deceiver. You are having impact far and wide. Your seed offering is growing right where you are! You must employ all, you must be poured out! Exodus 4:21 The Lord said to Moses, “When you return to Egypt, see that you perform before Pharaoh all the wonders I have given you the power to do. But I will harden his heart so that he will not let the people go”.

Don’t you dare hold back! But, but enough of your excuses!!!. Aaron spoke for Moses! I am working this out for you, equipping you daily.  Absolutely! Oh yes!

Do not be afraid, but be strong and courageous for I am with you! I will never leave nor forsake you.  2 Chronicles 32:“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or discouraged because of the king of Assyria and the vast army with him, for there is a greater power with us than with him. With him is only the arm of flesh, but with us is the Lord our God to help us and to fight our battles.” And the people gained confidence from what Hezekiah the king of Judah said.

You are seated and there is so much commotion. Imagine when you stand in your full stature in the capability of the Most High God to wage war against the hypocrisy of religion and the ills amongst my people!!! You are made for a time like this, remember Moses my servant, he had to go through the desert to be matured, Joseph had to go through the wilderness of unfairness from his brothers, slavery, wrong accusations, imprisonment in order to be able to take charge of the abundance of my provisions and protect my heritage.

godJust know that everything you have experienced, are experiencing and will experience was, is, and will work for your good, preparing you for the purpose for which you were created. You needed to be strong dear, for you were too weak, too sentimental, doubtful, intolerant, temperamental and simple. You had to be toughen up, you have to be refined to be among the chosen few.

I am your strength and light, your great reward, your righteousness, your refiner, your glory and beauty. I am working in you to will and to act in order for my great pleasure to be fulfilled in you- Philippians 2:13! Hold nothing back my child! You must be poured out, so be bold knowing I am with you! Fear not! You are blessed and highly favored! Stay focused, I will help you!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

joy-like-a-riverFriends, will think about the goodness of God towards you, and all He has done for you. Will you release your soul to shout hallelujah, praise God for saving, preserving and upholding you by his righteous right arm.

What? What? You don’t have a clue? What is all this about? Friends, it is by the mercies of God that you are not consumed. No matter what you are going through, know this for sure it could be worst, had it not been for the Lord. Will you give your all to the Lord today? Stop striving with your maker, He loves you! Yield your heart to Jesus today, let Him carry your burdens for He is the burden bearer for the redeemed. Accept your need for a Savior, confess your sins and ask Jesus to come into your life today. Tomorrow may be too late. Today is the day that the Lord has made, rejoice and be glad in Him. Salvation is here today, in no other but Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Reach out to Him today for He cares for you! Yes He does.

Prophetic Blessing

You have treasure in this earthen vessels that Christ Jesus put in there before the foundation of the world was laid.

That treasure my friend is for this very moment. For creation waits for the manifestation of the Sons of God.

Pure Glory

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Don’t shrink, discount, or belittle, what Jehovah supernaturally conceived within you, and graced you to be.

I pray the Holy Spirit surround you, like Mary and Elizabeth, with people who make your baby jump. Be loosed to love, value and honor, who you are in Christ. Be unlocked to new heavenly realms of God’s grace, ability, and great power. New dimensions and chapters of pure worship be your portion, in Yeshua’s name, today.
