Movement by the Marginalized

hand-1917895_640

 

In prayer this morning I heard these words reverberating through my spirit…Movement by the marginalized!!! 

 Marginalize-  to treat a person or group as unimportant, insignificant or of lower status.

We have seen this issue attempted to be resolved through violence and disrespect in the world. This is not God’s will or His way. The answer isn’t found in fighting and protesting for rights and fair treatment but in restoring HONOR  and RESPECT for ALL people…no matter what. Whether it be where you live, your skin color, your gender, your religion, your vocation, or anything else that divides us……You are worthy of love, honor, and respect!!

We have lost the revelation that we are all made in His image and He dearly loves each and every once of us. That fact should cause the fear of the Lord to effect how we treat each other. Love should be the motivating force behind everything we do, think, feel , and speak to others.

I believe with all my heart that it will be the voices within the church that have been silenced as unimportant that God wants to use loudly in this season.  The ones who have been made to feel like they don’t matter as much as others will suddenly become vitally necessary in this next move. It will be the people who have been treated like they are disposable that will become needed. Those who have been limited by the words or actions of man will become limitless fueled by the Holy Spirit. Those who have been seen as foolish, will now be seen as wise. Those in the back of the line will be coming to the front. Those picked last in gym class for teams will be called as one of the first. It will be the sound coming out of the ones who were told they can’t sing and the dance from the ones who were branded “uncoordinated” who will shatter strongholds that others couldn’t shatter. Honor for all people will be ushered in along with His presence.  We cannot be truly whole as a body until we learn to come together and love and honor our differences instead of allowing them to separate us.

Please don’t take things you hear through gossip and slander as truth. Make the effort to engage in and get to know the person behind the story.  You may just be richly blessed by finding out that what you heard was completely wrong or completely biased. We will stand before God and answer for the judgments we made out of word of mouth. We are responsible for repeating lies that are told to us. It’s an unholy domino effect. Can any good fruit come from gossip? Dare to go after the truth instead.

Please remember that structures are held in place by those thinking they are being wise. The status quo is maintained by what man thinks is “wisdom.”

  For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, “He catches the wise in their own craftiness” (1 Corinthians 3:19)

 God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty (1 Corinthians 1:27).

There is a richness that is developed in a person when they are treated in an unfair and an unjust way. Do not let your situations make you bitter but let them refine you so that He can define you for His glory! Let it develop great compassion and empathy. Stay in His presence, stay pure, stay innocent, stay in the word, stay trusting, stay humble, stay in love, stay at His feet, stay full of wonder, for these are the ones who will go from marginalized to esteemed! These are those who will fight for as it is in heaven to be seen on earth!

Take a look at these antonyms for marginalized. This is how the Father sees you and how we should be seeing each other…. as valued, honored, respected, admired, reputable, celebrated, cherished, treasured. May your view of others line up with how God sees them. Don’t agree with what people have said about you or let how they have treated you turn you bitter. He is turning the tables, He is shaking up the status quo. Get ready to MOVE  and be MOVED by His glory!!!

 

Spirit Fuel Interview (working link)

For those of you who may have missed this interview when it aired live on August 28th, here is the link to watch it on SpiritFuel TV. The episode was called Falling Into Your Calling. We covered the topics of healing, spiritual warfare, persevering past fear, and walking in wonder.

Say Yes to the Quest

quest

I was praying this morning and had a vision of the Father’s house. There were many rooms and people were in different rooms being equipped with whatever they needed in this season. Some were reading and focused on education, some were resting, some were learning how to move and fight (like Neo in the Matrix), some were simply laughing, some were focusing on truth and others were focusing on love, etc.

I realized as I walked around that part of the deep revelation needed right now in the body is that we have access to all these rooms. It’s in our “born again” birthright. We need infused by the holy spirit to birth a desire for adventure and a desire to see wonders.

I sensed that some people believed that they were meant to live and die in one room and didn’t realize that they were free to explore this whole house. Their identity had become so wrapped up in whatever room they we’re currently in that they couldn’t imagine there being “more” to discover or learn. They couldn’t imagine preaching, functioning, or living differently.

I felt a caution in my spirit especially for the five fold ministry holders to not let their titles contain and define them. That may be your office gifting but it’s not your full picture, it’s a puzzle piece. There is a call to explore the whole house to get the other pieces you need in order to see the BIG picture!

There were “war rooms” and “wonder rooms.” I had been in both these rooms before in my life. It is very interesting when you’ve been in the war room (and focused on the battle plan and having eyes of a sniper in the spirit) to be switched to the play room (where you remember how to play and have eyes of wonder.) I saw a “worship room” that connected these two rooms.

The willing ones who were walking into room after room were becoming more well rounded in their beliefs and skills, more like Jesus fueled by the holy Spirit,   in order to bring heaven to earth.

He is calling you to expand your ideas of who He is, who you are, and what is possible! There is so much more yet to be uncovered much like a huge treasure hunt. He can be trusted on this journey. He will never leave you or forsake you. I sense His great joy as His kids are saying YES to the quest!!

1 Corinthians 2:9- “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,
Nor have entered into the heart of man
The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” NKJV

The Genuine Being Revealed

Through the years people have tried to convince others that you were cubic zirconia to get them to see you as common instead of holy and to cause an irreverent opinion to form regarding you. The enemy’s goal was to get you treated as common instead of being treated as priceless so you would start to question your worth. It even started to effect the way you saw and treated yourself for a season.

I hear the Lord saying that He is coming as the Appraiser in full sight of everyone to declare that you are a genuine diamond of the highest purity and of the highest quality!!! The power of the ones speaking lies will be forever broken over you when Truth Himself speaks your worth.

There is much unveiling and exposing going on right now in the world, but it’s not only the counterfeit being uncovered, it’s also the genuine being revealed.
