You are Already Famous to ME

Lord God, You give us our reason for being. You give us life. Our purpose is found in You. Use us to spread Your fame throughout the earth in the way which pleases You. We wait for Your Word - bowed, listening...

PROPHETIC WORD

Do not seek fame.  You do not need it for you are already famous to Me.

I know you and I love you with all your shortcomings and faults.  You are beautiful and loved infinitely.  I could not love you more.  (And no one could love you more than I already do.)

The fame of this world is deceitful.  You seek to be known.  Yet what the world builds up it also delights to wrongly judge, rip down and destroy.  There is no love in it.  It is not Me.  It is not My way.  It does not represent My Kingdom way.

Worship God and do not seek to be worshipped.  Only God is to be exalted.  The Father is exalted by the Son and the Son by the Father.  However, true value of the individual is in considering others better than oneself. True value is the valuing of others without the de-valuing of self.  True value is to know you are of infinite value to the Lord whether you are seen by the world or not!  Be in Me! Seek Me!  Revel in My love.  It is the only love which will not disappoint.  With Me are eternally lasting good consequences.  The fame of this world is of no lasting value and gone in an instant.

You have no need for this fame.  There is great burden which fame (and even wealth) brings with it, for fame is not the blessing it seems.  If I allow it to come to pass as part of your service to Me, then I also will provide you with the strength for it, but in order to survive its manifaceted onslaught, you must take nothing for granted.  You must cling to Me daily, moment by moment and ongoing as never before.

There is great risk for now and for eternity in the fame society dangles before you like a priceless jewel.  Its value is fake.  It is not as it seems.

Do not look to the right or left to see who is watching or if they are watching.  That is the wrong focus.  I see you.  Look only to Me or anything which is built will be destroyed and washed away because it was not built on Me, the Rock.

Seek only the wealth that lasts. Seek Me and My Way.

True treasure is to be in Me and for Me.  I provide everything else you need and I provide it perfectly.  What I provide will not always look like you think you want or how you expect because I AM and I am infinitely superior to you.  My ways are not your ways.  Neither are my thoughts your thoughts.  As high as the heavens are above the earth, so much higher are my ways, my thoughts, my perfect plans and strategies.

I know your needs.  I know your wants.  Fame is not the answer.  I AM.  Your delight will never be full or complete, there will be no true joy or peace until you know I AM and can rest in it.  Look to Me, for in Me you need to look no further.  You are made complete by Me, in Me and through Me.

Success defined as you have been taught is a lie.  It is no success at all. True success is to  be Mine and it is to be in Me with Me in you as I am in the Father and  the Father is in Me, joined together for My purposes throughout the earth.

I came on a mission of love.  Money did not matter and money does not matter.  It is a mere tool.  It can be used for great good if you steward as I direct!  (And it is MINE not yours anyway.)  However, I promise to provide all that you need, therefore you do not need to seek money, you need to seek Me!

Do the work I set before you and I will enable you to have enough.  Trust Me; seek Me – not wealth and fame. The joy and inner peace you seek is not in it.  It is found in Me alone.

I am a God-seeker--a Jesus-worshipper--a Holy Spirit follower. I create songs, devotions, prayers, books and Bible studies to give words with which to get to know God more. For you. Its for one-on-One encounter unto transformed, transcendent living. This is not my vocation. I am not professional. I am a real, ordinary person just looking to do what God put me here to do. (You have a unique purpose too.) So I am called to the work. It is not my income source, but my gift to those who find it blessing. Eagles Nest Foundation sponsors all projects for you. The result: pure, clean spiritual nutrition to feed that deep insatiable spiritual hunger which eventually overtakes each of us and galvanizes you to the life God has for you. This life is purposeful. Exceptional. You--yes, you--are called to something greater and more satisfying in His service. So it is hoped you'll try this spiritually dense nutrition and find it to be a personal blessing. However, the goodness of God-following doesn't stop there. He uses those who seek Him to be His love and care (justice, mercy, advocate, kindness) very tangibly in the lives of those around you. Not by your power but by His. His ideas. God ideas. Not just good ideas. To be part of changing the world, if you will let Him. You learn to just follow where He leads. That if you listen, He will teach you to hear His voice and then when you obey His inner promptings you will become His incredible hands and feet in this hard world. These materials will help! They will help you aim your life towards God in a way you never look back. You will not be the same. He will become the River in your desert spaces and you will become a conduit of this same River of refreshing, replenishing Water of Life to others. Find a prayer. Pick a blog post. Read a book. Be led deeper into the Bible. Select a song which resonates and use it and use it again to go close and ever closer to the God who longs to draw you near. Oh, and don't be tempted to think I'm a crazy over-spiritualized loony...My background is financial planning and counseling. Almost 40 years of it. To choose to believe in God is not to leave practicality and reason behind, but to learn that there is that which goes beyond it and includes it, unto true life fulfillment beyond all your dreams for the one who keeps seeking Him. I am a third generation Californian. I am a person to whom family means everything. The only priority higher is God. The foothills of the Sierra Nevada are my home. It is here the 1849-1856 Gold Rush is still glorified. Easy money? Actually only for the few. Even though I was raised in the Church, it took me ten years of doubting God even existed to realize that without Him, no matter how much of this life's "stuff" is accumulated, I actually have nothing. To come to know that all those who chased after gold are dead and all those who still chase stuff will be dead. That's when I became a God-seeker. Looking for that more. And Eureka! (This is California's state slogan and means I found it.) I found God...or rather, I discovered He was there and had been there waiting for me to look for Him the whole time. May you discover more of Him for you, greater flourishing life and greater flourishing for all in the world as well. God bless you! ~Elizabeth
