Prophetic Word: I AM Using You in the Seemingly Small and Great

Lord, sometimes we forget we are Your delight created for Your purposes. We forget that in and through all things You desire to use us and even when what the enemy intends is evil, Your purpose is to bring Your eternal good eventually through it. We forget to remember that You never leave or forsake us and that our value is in Your eyes and no one else's.  Lord, like the lilies of the field, we bow again to You. We desire only You--to delight in You!  Use us where we are. It does not matter whether others see. We delight in You for we know You delight in us and there is no stopping Your care and love. Thank You! In Jesus' name Amen

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.

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
