Unique Gifts

1 Corinthians 12:7 (VOICE) Each believer has received a gift that manifests the Spirit’s power and presence. That gift is given for the good of the whole community.

Beloved, I have bestowed on you gifts that are unique to you. Even as similar giftings flow within My Body, the manifestation of each is unique to the way I have designed the vessel through which it pours. 

Resist the urge to dismiss your gifts as being without value simply because they are different. Likewise, resist the urge to esteem your gifts more highly than anyone else’s, for each gift is necessary and designed with intention. 

So embrace your unique design, and the way I’ve chosen to manifest My glory through you. Be intentional to yield to My Spirit’s flow as purely as possible – laying down any personal agendas or desires, and simply allow Me to move. For in that, I AM truly glorified, and you share in My glory.

A Reflection of My Magnificent Glory

Isaiah 6:4 (AMP) And the foundations of the thresholds trembled at the voice of him who called out, and the temple was filling with smoke.

Beloved, enter My holy place. Let the resonance of My voice move you – may it stir you to action. May you be changed in My presence. And may any outer protective layer you’ve created for yourself tremble and be shaken free. 

Be naked and unashamed, beloved. You’ve no need to hide yourself or try to shield yourself from Me. I AM the One true God and the Lover of your soul, so find your identity in Me. For you are a reflection of My magnificent glory, so be radiant without shame. 

Isaiah 6:1-3 (VOICE) In the same year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a grand throne way up high with a flowing cape that filled the whole temple. Bright flaming creatures waited on Him. Each had six wings: two covering its face, two covering its feet, and two for flying. Like some fiery choir, they would call back and forth continually. Flaming Creatures: Holy, holy, holy is the Eternal, the Commander of heavenly armies! The earth is filled with His glorious presence!

Come Up Higher

Revelation 4:1 (TPT) Then suddenly, after I wrote down these messages, I saw a heavenly portal open before me, and the same trumpet-voice I heard speaking with me at the beginning broke the silence and said, “Ascend into this realm! I want to reveal to you what must happen after this.”

Beloved, come up higher. I have granted you access into the heavenly realms that you might see. Open your eyes and step over the threshold into the fullness of what I have made available to you. Refuse to allow anything to hold you back – not doubt or fear or unbelief.

Step forward, beloved, and come up higher. Ascend into higher realms, for the glory that will be revealed is magnificent and life changing, but it requires you to move. It requires you to see. So take My hand and step forward in faith with your spiritual eyes alert and ready as we move into the things of My Kingdom.

Revelation 4:1 (ESV) After this I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven! And the first voice, which I had heard speaking to me like a trumpet, said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.”

Beautiful and Radiant

Song of Songs 4:1 (TPT) Listen, my dearest darling, you are so beautiful—you are beauty itself to me! Your eyes glisten with love, like gentle doves behind your veil. What devotion I see each time I gaze upon you. You are like a sacrifice ready to be offered.

Beloved, see yourself as I see you – beautiful and radiant in all your splendor. Nothing in creation comes close to the glory of you. Resist the urge to view yourself superficially, or to allow the thoughts and words of man to distort your view. Just as a newly minted dollar has the same value as one that is wrinkled and torn, see your value in truth and not by shallow measures. 

I see you as glorious and breathtaking, and anyone seeing with spiritual eyes will see the same. Be mindful to view others through the same rose-colored spiritual eyes that I ask you to view yourself. Each of you has been created with intention, in My image, and is worthy of love and blessing. Reflect it out just as I desire it for you – and as you want to receive. 

Chay Elohim (the Living God)

Isaiah 60:1 (NLV) Rise up and shine, for your light has come. The shining-greatness of the Lord has risen upon you.

Beloved, I shine brighter than a thousand suns. My light is more glorious than anything on heaven or earth. Look to Me. Keep your eyes fixed on My gaze and refuse to look away. May your face reflect My radiance.

I AM Chay Elohim – the Living God. I AM not an idol made by human hands – lifeless and powerless. Rather I AM the source of life. My Holy Spirit gives life to the dry bones and makes the dead places to flourish. Look to Me, and refuse to shift your gaze, and see what I can do in you.

Time to Awaken

Psalm 57:8 (TPT) Awake, O my soul, with the music of his splendor-song! Arise, my soul, and sing his praises! My worship will awaken the dawn, greeting the daybreak with my songs of praise!

Beloved, hear My voice calling you. I AM rousing you from slumber. I AM calling to the dead bones and telling them to rise and live again. It is time to awaken. Come into a heightened sense of awareness. Receive more of Me.

Sing your praise and dance with joy. Let your prayers whisper in the dawn. Watch My glory rise to noonday. Come alive in Me. It’s time to awaken. There’s always more life to embrace. There’s always more, so, beloved, receive.

Ignite the World in My Glory

Luke 10:19 (AMP) Listen carefully: I have given you authority [that you now possess] to tread on serpents and scorpions, and [the ability to exercise authority] over all the power of the enemy (Satan); and nothing will [in any way] harm you.

Beloved, human mind cannot fully comprehend the power of My Spirit. And yet, as you yield to Me and allow My power to work in and through you, the work of My Spirit is accomplished through human vessels. 

The supernatural is natural to Me. My children should expect to walk in My power – not in a way that puffs up human pride, but in a way that glorifies Me and expands My Kingdom. 

So be expectant for Me to move. Be expectant for My authority to be entrusted to My children. In humility, yield to My Spirit and watch how together we will move – igniting the world in My glory. 

Desire My Glory

Habakkuk 2:14 (GW) But the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the Lord’s glory like the water covers the sea.

Beloved, feel the weight of My glory. It is no light, inconsequential thing. My glory changes all it encounters. Nothing can resist its pull. It shift atmospheres and changes hearts. It is life changing.

Desire My glory – a move of My hand. Embrace the change it brings with reckless abandon and wholehearted trust. Watch as My glory spreads as it manifests – My Kingdom come to Earth.

Be Transformed By My Glory

2 Corinthians 3:18 (VOICE) Now all of us, with our faces unveiled, reflect the glory of the Lord as if we are mirrors; and so we are being transformed, metamorphosed, into His same image from one radiance of glory to another, just as the Spirit of the Lord accomplishes it.

Beloved, be transformed by My glory. Not changed in little, near unnoticeable increments, but rather wholly, completely, and radically transformed. Become a new creation in Me. Let the power of My glory bring forth metamorphosis and be made new. 

Resist the urge to fight My transforming power. Refuse to be intimidated by change. Know that I AM with you always and My plans for you are good plans. Then yield to My wonder-working power and be made new. 

Feel My Glory Rising

Malachi 4:2 (AMP) But for you who fear My name [with awe-filled reverence] the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings. And you will go forward and leap [joyfully] like calves [released] from the stall.

Beloved, stay in that place of awe-filled wonder and trust that I AM able to do abundantly above all you can ask or think. For I AM able. Stand in adoration before your King. 

Feel My glory rising and the tide of the miraculous along with it. Be ready, beloved. Be ready to burst forth in joy to the right and to the left. Be unrestrained in your praise to the One who is worthy. For I AM moving, beloved. Make ready.
