As we round out the month of June, I have to finish with the last book of Isaiah. I continue to get so much out of this book of prophetic vision.
Thus says the Lord: “Heaven is My throne, And earth is My footstool. Where is the house that you will build Me? And where is the place of My rest? For all those things My hand has made, And all those things exist,” Says the Lord. “But on this one will I look: On him who is poor and of a contrite spirit, And who trembles at My word.
“He who kills a bull is as if he slays a man; He who sacrifices a lamb, as if he breaks a dog’s neck; He who offers a grain offering, as if he offers swine’s blood; He who burns incense, as if he blesses an idol. Just as they have chosen their own ways, And their soul delights in their abominations, So will I choose their delusions, And bring their fears on them; Because, when I called, no one answered, When I spoke they did not hear; But they did evil before My eyes, And chose that in which I do not delight.”
Hear the word of the Lord, You who tremble at His word: “Your brethren who hated you, Who cast you out for My name’s sake, said, ‘Let the Lord be glorified, That we may see your joy.’ But they shall be ashamed.”
The sound of noise from the city! A voice from the temple! The voice of the Lord, Who fully repays His enemies!
“Before she was in labor, she gave birth; Before her pain came, She delivered a male child. Who has heard such a thing? Who has seen such things? Shall the earth be made to give birth in one day? Or shall a nation be born at once? For as soon as Zion was in labor, She gave birth to her children. Shall I bring to the time of birth, and not cause delivery?” says the Lord. “Shall I who cause delivery shut up the womb?” says your God. “Rejoice with Jerusalem, And be glad with her, all you who love her; Rejoice for joy with her, all you who mourn for her; That you may feed and be satisfied With the consolation of her bosom, That you may drink deeply and be delighted With the abundance of her glory.”
For thus says the Lord: “Behold, I will extend peace to her like a river, And the glory of the Gentiles like a flowing stream. Then you shall feed; On her sides shall you be carried, And be dandled on her knees. As one whom his mother comforts, So I will comfort you; And you shall be comforted in Jerusalem.”
-Isaiah 66:1-13 NKJV
Daughters and sons of light, many of you have been carrying things inside your hearts and it’s time to give birth to them. The release allows it to breathe in this earthly realm. God is calling His daughters and sons to rise and shine, for the light has come. There are new inventions and business innovations to be started from your mind and heart. The Lord will give the increase once you release your vision to your communities. See a need, fill a need!
I believe like never before that the believers with a kingdom-minded perspective are given creative ideas, for He knows they will follow through and create on behalf of the King. It’s our mandate to create and love on others in the midst of building beautiful things. I have a desire to encourage as many humans as I can in this way. Something awakens inside of us when we partner with the Divine to create new things along our life journey. At least, it has for me.
What do you feel stirring inside of you?
What is holding you back?
Fear of failure?
Not feeling qualified?
Maybe you feel someone else has something similar?
I have heard that your way will always bring a different/unique perspective or bent to any situation. This is how we keep things fresh by re-imagining common things or needs.
Well, I believe I have gotten my point across. Let me say it again, “It’s birthing season, so let’s begin!”
Until next time,
