Going through full notebooks where a seemingly endless stream of messages from Him have been scribbled over months and years, I came across this message from December 10, 2012. Perhaps there are some who will be blessed by the encouragement He gives us through it. This is what is called a prophetic word. I hear it as if the words are being spoken into my mind and write it down as I “hear” it. Please always pray before and as you read. By definition I am human and imperfect. In addition, when the Holy Spirit “downloads” a word, it will either resonate with you or it will not and that’s okay. No one prophetic word is for every person. And this is my prayer for you: ”LORD, please lead each reader perfectly and cause them to receive and remember, only that which is from You for them. In Jesus’ name, Amen.” ~ Elizabeth
Keep marching forward even when it feels as if you are not moving. I am with you. I am using you to build a highway of holiness to bring them closer to Me. I want them to see Me. I want them to know Me. Do not worry when it seems as if that which I am having you do has no effect. It is having My effect. I love you. I love them.
I am working on your heart even as I flow through you to touch them. I desire to use you as I used My Son Jesus. There is a message they need to know—a vision they need to catch. True greatness is in shining me with the joy which is as of a trusting child every day. That is everything.
So many push for great moments. Tirelessly and fruitlessly they push to go faster and higher to reach the greater, striving to reach a pinnacle and dwell there. The mountain they climb is not Mine. I am the pinnacle and only when seeking to be pursuing close relationship with Me, waiting on My every word, then obeying, will you live on the pinnacle of life, in the fullness of all I have for you and all I created you to be in Me and for Me every day.
Be in Me as I am in the Son and the Son is in the Father. Be in Me reveling in My love and My purpose for the world, seeing your life from My perspective instead of Your own.
Stay in the exquisite beauty of life even through unavoidable difficulties, suffering and sorrow because you know I am with you, using you for eternal benefit and good in the lives of others.
There is nothing better or greater than being in my will—nothing.
There is such beauty in what others consider the smallness of life. Do not miss it. So many quote my teaching to consider the lilies and yes, it is to remind you that I am your provider, I have the plan for your life and I will take care of you in your season of life until I ordain it is time for you to come home to Me forever. Yet there is another aspect to the lilies of the field—the wildflowers. Few are ever seen by the masses. Few are ever acknowledged individually for the purpose they serve in My creation. Few notice when the first wisps appear above the earth—tender-shoots. Few notice when they bloom declaring and proclaiming My glory by their existence. And few notice when they wilt and fade.
But their value is not determined by the measure of any human being or human attention. I give them their value and it is greater to me than can be measured by any human means. I say it again—listen to Me. The value of every wildflower which lives, its entire existence unseen and unappreciated by any human is greater than can be measured by human means. YOUR VALUE TO ME IS GREATER. You were made in My image. The flowers, plants, trees, rivers, streams, mountains, animals and fish of the sea which all proclaim My glory through their mere existence are not. You alone are made in My image. My love for you is infinite and everlasting and unconditional. Your value cannot be measured by the type of home in which you dwell, the occupation you pursue or the company you keep. Remember and never forget, your value cannot be measured with any human method of measurement.
If today you find yourself in a dark place –a place where you would rather not be, understand first, that I see and I know. I know it is not easy for you there and when you weep, I weep with you. When evil comes against you, I too grieve, just as I grieved for My Son and every prophet when they murdered Him and them.
I will not leave you in this hard place. It is but a season, but know even there I desire to use you if you will let Me. There are those who need to see and experience My light and My love. You are My lamp through which My light and My love can illuminate the darkness by My Spirit if you will let Me. I desire to ignite the flame of My light to shine through your broken spaces. You are My vessel, My jar of clay through which I desire to flow My river of life–of love, grace, righteousness and justice. This is the river of My Spirit which ushers My way into the world and with it the rewards of My joy, peace and perfect contentedness now and eternal life with Me forever.
And so My beautiful child by all the seemingly small acts of obedience which bear fruit you cannot see, You teach the beauty of the smallness—the fullness of life which is there for each to grasp who will follow, and reveal the blessings of obedience in the everyday which are also beyond measure. This is blessed work because it is Mine, for Me.
Come to rest in it daily and revel in Me. Remember and never forget (be encouraged) everything which is My way is beyond human measure and oh how I delight in confounding those who choose to try to see life only through the eyes of the world. I AM, I AM, I AM and I will be known throughout the earth and the work will be done in part through you—wherever you are.
