Lift Up Your Heads

P1020298This 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

Lift up your heads My children. Lift up your heads. You are looking too low. You are looking for things of this world. That is not wrong, but it distracts from My higher things and discourages because you measure My activity by the wrong measures. Be assured. In all that you have laid before Me in prayer, I am at work. Steadily, progressively, I am providing all that is needed for My result. I am aware of your heart’s desires. Remember, I made you!  I made you to love, to care and want what you perceive as best. Yet in your best intentions you remain children and as yet, immature in your view. And I love you as you are! And I am calling you to My more.  Your measure of success is too small. Your measure of what’s important like the view of the ant. I love you in this. I love you massively, for you are My beloved children. And…I am calling you to increase your trust. Increase your reliance to Me. Your abandon.  Delight yourself in Me and rejoice in the work I have set before you this day. All work is good and I am working through it. All work is large. There is no measure of one type of work being supreme over another. Do it as if doing it for Me (because you are!) Lift up your heads. Put your eyes firmly on Me. Meditate on Me and let Me write My essence on your hearts.  I love them more than you do and I have not forgotten a single one. Do you not remember? I AM the Good Shepherd. I go after every lost sheep always. I do it My way in My timing. I am never late. I am working out My perfect plans which include all. Believe in Me! Rest in Me. Find your peace in Me even today—especially before you see results. REJOICE!

Put Down Your Fear. I AM!

Lord, there are hard things. You know. Speak. I am listening. Help me to be in this space. As Guide and Love I know You will show me the way forward. One true God, Savior and Lord all trust is in You. Speak, Lord, Your servant is listening. In Jesus' name, Amen

Put it down. Put it down. Put it down. You picked it up again and it is too heavy for you. I am all that you want or need. I see. I know. I have not forgotten. I have not been overwhelmed or overcome. I am still here and have not changed. I know. I am not finished. I have not left. I am still about my business. Look to Me.

Where you are there is danger. You have correctly discerned. This can destroy you or through it I can make you stronger in Me (for Me and by Me). The choice is yours. I desire to make you stronger for with Me you will overcome. Will you let Me?

I know what you are facing is difficult. I am well aware you have neither been this way before nor is it a way you would have chosen for yourself. Even though that which you face seems so much larger than any obstacle or enemy faced in the past—even though you know it is not within your control—it is I who am with you always even to the end of the age. I have not left. My arm and reign remain supreme. NOTHING changes that. Nothing—not even that which causes such fear in you now.

This fear is not from Me. No fear is from Me. I am the One to be feared—the only One. This is not because I will harm you, but because I am Supreme, above all, the Most High! Everything else is less. Everything. I am Creator. I am the only Creator. I laugh at every other entity which seeks to exalt its own power for it shall not be. I am to be revered in My place. Fear of anything else is not from Me and cripples. Do not allow it to have this power. Look to Me and rely on Me instead. Trust ME. There is no other one trustworthy and I am faithful.

You realize you are not in control. You know that which comes against you is greater than you are. Indeed! It is! Yet I AM Greatest! This is not large to Me. It is as nothing. I already know what I will do with it. More importantly, I already know what I will do through it. Nothing thwarts My purposes. Nothing. Never. Ever. Nothing. I AM GOD. Remember this. Engrave it on your mind and heart. Look to Me and don’t look away and I Myself will do the engraving and you will be able to stand strong.

Even though suddenly this is before you, it is not new to Me. I have known. I have the plan and I remain the same. I AM Emmanuel, God With Us, so God with you now and even now. I have not changed. My power continues to be almighty. I remain Conqueror. I am ever Victor. Even in this. Especially through this.

You cannot see the way forward, but I can. Do the same as I have always asked of You: look to Me, worship, listen and obey with complete abandon. You are right. This is out of Your control, but it is not out of Mine. You have never been in control. Any sense of control which you thought you had was really illusion. I have always been in control. Surely the adversary acts as if he can, but in the end I win for My people, always and eternally because of My zeal for every person, because of My love.

Set down your need to know and understand. This is critical if you are to receive My peace in this place. There will be much in this season which you will not know in advance. I am the One Who knows. That is all that is required. Look to Me and let go of your fear. You fear because you know you have no power in this. You can make nothing happen. Your fear is unhelpful for you and it is an obstacle between you and Me and all I want to do for you and those you love.

Where have I ever told you to fear what you see in the world? Where have I told you the enemy is worthy of being feared? You are giving glory and credit to him which belongs only to Me. I am the One to be feared with a reverential awe and awareness for nothing is greater! I am the One with all power. I am the One who can change all things in a moment in ways you cannot anticipate. I am the One who knows what I am about and what I will accomplish through this. Yes, the enemy is evil and has reared his head. And I am greater or I am not God. Do you believe in Me? Then put down your fear of the unknown which lies before you. The enemy is indeed crouching near, lying in wait and whispering lies that he is more powerful and will win. Why do you listen? Stop listening. Do you believe in Me? Then believe in My power and My promises. Put down your fear of what you cannot control. I AM. Lift your eyes to Me and remember. Worship Me. Choose to receive My peace where it does not make sense (it is there for you) and I will guide you and those you love through this.

I will be glorified. I am victorious. I will be exalted in the earth. People will see and know I am God because of what I will do through this and through it all and it will be great. Fear Me alone.

PRAYER:  Lord, You are right. This is too heavy. I cannot carry it and am breaking under it. Trying to hold this up before You is even causing me to be sick. I am so thankful that this is not Your will for me. Thank You for inviting me to be Your child where I can simply sit at Your feet and play until You tell me what to do next. Thank You that I don’t have to figure this out, but only have to trust You and Your sovereignty over all things. The growing awareness of Your dominion helps me to receive Your peace. How thankful I am for your kingdom. I choose to seek Your kingdom and Your righteousness understanding that when I do, I need fear for nothing else for there You are with me and those I love even to the end of the age. It doesn’t matter how the adversary rears his ugly head or the threats or whispers of lies made. You are the only One with Supreme power, ever-Victor, Savior and Lord. You are the only One whose plans are not thwarted and can see the best and the good and the right not just for the moment but from here to eternity. How I love You! Thank You for this freedom which I have in You. You are my hope. You are my shield. You are my Mighty Warrior. You are just. Your Way is Supreme. You are love. I will take up my rest in You again today. You beckon me and I am thankful. I am thankful Lord. I am thankful for this place for You are in it. Thank You, Lord that You ever and forever are. In Jesus’ name, Amen

Prophetic Word: Give Me Your Hand

Wonderful One, all I want and all I need is to take your hand. You lead from darkness into Your light. You restore. You heal. All I want and all that I need is Your way.  You promise to bring mountains down and raise valleys up so that there is a level place where I can stand and take your hand and move forward into all that You have for me. My heart is rejoicing. Yes, Lord, here is my hand. Lead me.

Give Me your hand and I will lead you. I have so much to show you. I want to reveal more of Myself to you and My Way. I want to love you more. I want to use you more. But the love comes first. I want to heal you. My love heals. This is the greatest aspect of My power which is all love.

I give life now and I give LIFE forever and I heal and restore. Fallen one, it is I who lift you up. How do you expect to pick yourself up if you do not take My hand? How will the world see Me and come to k now Me if it is not through you?

I know you are broken. This world is not kind, but I am. The world’s ways are not my ways. Climbing over each other for power, vying for greatness defined by invisible accolades from the masses. Who are they anyway, that they should value you?

You are Mine. You have always been Mine whether you choose to recognize Me or not.

There are opinions of you which have no true hold on you. They will pass away. Their opinions won’t matter.

Yet, I AM. I have always been and I will always be. No matter what others say or do to you in the end it all loses its power. It does not last. I alone reign. I am eternal and eternal life is with Me alone. My way—how I have ordained things to be will always be. I AM He and there is no other.

Will you take My hand? Will you believe Me? Will you choose to see your life and yourself the way I see you and be free? That which holds you captive is not from Me.

How I long to free you from it. It will take time. It is a process. You need a new way of thinking and of seeing.

I will help you. Will you take My hand?

I am all good. I am gentle. I will help you. I will lead you. As I lead you I will heal you, wounded one. Do you know? Can you see? Through my wounds I have restored and redeemed the world. This is the full, complete healing—to eternity with Me!

By My wounds. Because I suffered. My wounds were inflicted by the evil one who desires to reign, pretends to reign, yet from an eternal perspective is already defeated.

By your wounds—through your wounds, I desire to heal others.

Do not be mistaken. I do not delight in your wounds. It is not from Me that you hurt. I have wept as they hurt you and how I long to hold you yet closer in My eternal arms of love, to comfort you and let My love be a balm, a bandage and a miracle, which restores to you all I have meant you to be.

You are My beautiful one, My handsome one, and I long to finally usher in full justice for you.

And yet, and yet, My way is so superior, so supreme that even in the hard, ugly places of this worldly temporal life I will use all things for eternal good in the lives of those I have called and I have called all.

Will you hear Me? Will you come? Will you let Me be in You and heal you? Will you let Me flow through your wounds to bring My healing to others even as I heal you?

I have purpose for you. It is great. It will be one of refreshing and joy to you.

Listen. I am calling. Will you take My hand? Don’t let go for I desire to lead you.

I can. I will. I AM.  Give Me your hand.  It is a choice. Will you do it?

Little one, I see you. I know you and know the places of your pain. Little one, how I long to hold you. I am here even in those moments when you are unsure whether I am real at all.  I never leave your side. I am your Comforter at all times.

There will be a moment–Father knows the time–when the season of suffering will be over. Pain shall cease and you will see Me face to face. Then you will know I am wiping every tear away.  The fullness of My justice will have come.  And the fullness of My love.  All will be complete, redeemed and restored.   That time is not yet, but I am still with you.

Get up and walk. I will show you the way.  One step at a time. Keep going. There is good work for you through this place. It is My work. By My grace, if you will let Me, I will work through you tohave my eternal effect in the lives of others. You do not decide what this is. I do.

Little one, I love you. I am holding you. I am leading you. We will go there together and every step (no matter how hard) when considered  from My eternal perspective will be glorious!

Prophetic Word: Steward It As I Lead


Lord God, all that we are and all that we have is Yours.  We know You alone are God and that You have good plans for us. We ask for You to guide us by Your Holy Spirit. We are listening and as Your beloved children, only want Your will. Our trust is in You and we look with excited expectancy for how You will work for good through us for Your glory in ways beyond anything we could imagine when we choose to trust, listen an obey. Indeed we are Yours. In Jesus' name, Amen

Steward what I have given you. It was never yours. It is Mine and I alone know what it is for—how I want to use it. I alone see needs. I meet them. I meet them through you

My way is wondrous. My way is great. My way is just. My way is right.

Miracles are worked by Me. My miracles are worked through you.

I made My sacrifice. Follow Me and make yours.

I am your Provider. I alone know what “enough” is. I supply it. I will supply it.

On this earth, in this life, times of famine and times of abundance are. Help each other through it. I provide for one and nudge you to help the other. Then it is your turn and I will call on them to help you in your hour of need.

You focus too much on money as the key to My provision. I provide in an unlimited myriad of other ways, too. Money is not the way to an abundant life. Fullness, contentment and satisfaction are found only in ways that go beyond what money can provide. Money is merely a tool, which is a part of My complete provision. It will never be more in providing the fullness of blessing I have for you. Money is temporary and can help to meet physical needs in the now. It will never meet the deep inner needs which are at your core. Only I can. Money is not the way.

I know at times it is hard for you. I know when you are hungry and worry for shelter. How difficult it can be to trust in the greater, forever-lasting, greater gifts I have for you. Look to Me. Sometimes I have instruction to help you out of the hard place where you find yourself. Sometimes these will not seem to make sense. I exhort you—listen to Me!

And to all of you, I say and keep on saying, open your hands!!! How can I take care of others My way when you are so tight-fisted with what I have provided and refuse to open your hands. Open them and let what I have enabled and provided to flow through you to the world the way I ordain.

This means you must listen. You must choose to believe I will speak to you and direct you as I did My Son, Jesus. It is why I sent My Spirit.

The needs of this world—this place which is not heaven and so much less than I have for you—are massive. You cannot meet all of them.   You cannot and this is not my plan for you. I alone am God. It is through Me alone all needs are met perfectly. My plan. No other.

You do not want to listen because you do not think you want My will. You think there may be a cost and there may be.

If you say you are My disciple, what does that meant to you? A disciple seeks to be trained by the Master—to follow in His footsteps. A follower is committed to walk and live in the way of the One who leads. Am I your leader? You call Me, “Lord”.

Do not call me, “Lord” unless you intend to actively try to follow Me. Do you not know and remember My joy is your strength? Do you not believe and remember, I have plans for you—plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future. How do you expect to enjoy these—to enjoy My blessings—if you are not following in the way I am leading? Do you create your own blessings? Do you have any power to do anything without Me? If I decide, can you stop it from coming to pass? Do you decide when the seasons change or when the rain falls? Can you stop death from coming when it is My time? Why do you still think anything is yours? It is Mine and I give it to you to bless you and through you I desire to bless others My perfect way in My perfect order in My perfect timing. Open your hands. Open your mind and seek to hear Me.

Steward all that you are and all that you have as I lead.

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.

Prophetic Word: I AM With You Always

Lord, even in our worst, You are there. You know our sorrow. You know our suffering. You carry us through. Therefore our trust is ever in You and in You in all things our joy is complete for Your joy is our strength and it is on You alone we rely. Ah, Lord, we sigh with relief. Thank You for who You are and Your magnificent way in all things. In Jesus' name, Amen

I felt the first sentences of this word from the Lord welling up inside me as I fell asleep last night. It is for those who hurt and need a word of encouragement in a very hard place. It may be for you now. It may be for you later. It may never be for you, but it is for very specifically for some individuals who will find it at exactly the moment they need.  With this particular word, please remember that when our Lord speaks of healing sometimes it is healing here, always it is for eternity.  His greatest healing is the healing of our hearts which finds its completion in the Life without end which is His promise. Please also keep in mind, when the Holy Spirit “downloads” a word, it either will resonate with you or it will not.  No one prophetic word is for every person. Additionally, in seeking to write down what I think I “hear” from Him, by definition I am human and imperfect.  Please always pray before you read and as you read. 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

I have seen your pain and I will heal. I know it has not been easy. I know it has not made sense.

I know you often have felt alone in this journey, yet I have been beside you as you have walked through it. In this valley of the shadow of death where discouragement, confusion and even despair have also been your companions, I have never left you and never will. Though this place has been so hard that often you have not felt it, I have carried you on the days you thought you could go no further. In the same way I rejoiced with you, ever beside you whether you knew it or not, on the days where glimmers of hope and even joy have finally begun to return to the life you were tempted to think was lifeless and never again would be revived.

According to my very real promise, I have collected your tears in a bottle in complete awareness of every single one and have wept with you as you wept.   My angels have been dispatched to minister to you even though often the pain has been so great you were unaware of their presence and help. A life of sorrow and pain is not my best for you. In this fallen world there is so much of it, yet I, Jesus—the One who has also suffered—have made the way for this life not to be the end, but the beginning and not to be the best, but the least of what I have for you.

There is so much good to come! You cannot even fathom it. So great is indeed My love.

Here in that place to which I invite you and wait for you to be with me forever, I also wait to wipe away every tear which has ever fallen as you are ushered into that everlasting joy waiting for you when your service for Me here in this temporal, hard life is done.

I assure you, My child, that indeed you are Mine and though at present you are engulfed in the world, you are no longer of it. You have a purpose beyond yourself to be My ambassador, to shine My light, to usher in more of My kingdom My way to those around you—even in the hardest of places. Where there seems no hope even there I desire to use you.

Will you let Me? Will you be My instrument for My purposes even now?

I need you to look to Me even though sometimes you are not sure you see Me in this. I need you to choose faith, which believes in that which cannot be seen. I need you to listen and seek Me and I will teach you to hear My voice. You are my beloved, beloved, special, unique and treasured child and as Your Shepherd, I do so desire to lead you in the way I know is best for you to go.

Life in this world will never be easy. It will never be heaven. The enemy will always be nipping at your heels proclaiming your defeat and the demise of all you love. But this is and always will be a lie. Only I am Truth and I tell you that I will bring you and those you love through it. Those who have gone before are cheering for you and waiting for you. I know the day and time I will bring you home. Do not desire it sooner. Until then I have good work for you in every moment, whether you can recognize it or not.

For now, seek Me. Let My Spirit do a work in you. Through your pain I will use you for good in the lives of others. I will use you to help them see Me and begin their own healing journey. I will use you to be My love, encouragement and My right arm ushering in more justice and rescue for others who hurt. Do it My way. I will lead you. Listen. Trust. Seek. Listen. Wait. Listen. Obey. Do it in love. Choose love. Choose love for love of Me, not because they deserve it. Choose love because I love you and do it all for Me for often from others there will be no appropriate or reassuring response. Choose love to be My instrument. I will show you how to do it.

Find your place and your rest through the suffering in Me. Rest assured in My presence. Rest confident in My purpose. You are My instrument even in that which is worst. Receive the gift of My love. Let My peace go deep and sustain you even now. Eyes on Me, thoughts on Me, heart listening for My movement and instructions within. I will bring you through it and My results for eternity in you and especially in the others in ways you cannot see will be glorious!
