The Lord says to you, “This is a time of unveiling My plans and purposes. This is a time to draw closer to Me as I desire to give you greater revelation and spiritual sight. I am revealing the ‘gold’ of past seasons. Many times you didn’t see My hand working behind the scenes but I was orchestrating and aligning things for your good. Many times you couldn’t see the path ahead but you stood in faith knowing I was faithful to fulfill the promises I had spoken. You are entering a time where you will see how I worked all things for your good. You will see the beauty and importance of the journey. You will testify of My goodness and faithfulness. You will see the work of My hand over your life and you will be amazed at how I used past seasons to bring you to this time and place. I am revealing the gold and treasure found in the process of going deeper in Me and deeper in understanding My ways. I am revealing the gold inside of you and opening your eyes to the treasure you are to Me. You are My masterpiece and I delight in you. Spend time in My presence and draw closer to Me. I desire to give you greater revelation and understanding. The gold of past seasons will be revealed as you see how I worked all things together for your good. The gold of the new season will be revealed as you trust in Me and step onto the path set before you. The gold in you will be revealed as you understand and walk in your identity in Me, use the gifts you have been given and walk in love. Allow the gold and light within you to shine and you will draw many to Me and bring glory to Me.”
The Lord then gave me a vision of an intricate patchwork quilt. Each square of the quilt was sown together with golden thread. It was only when the quilt squares were all joined together that the picture and design of the quilt could be seen and truly appreciated. So much care had gone into sowing the quilt together and in arranging the squares to form the beautiful design of the quilt. The Lord wants to remind us that each square or season of our lives is used by Him. The golden thread is a picture of God’s workmanship and hand over our lives. He is working behind the scenes aligning and working all things for our good. It is only when we see all the squares together that we fully appreciate the design. God has a purpose for every season of our lives. God sees the big picture and He has a master plan for our lives. God wants to transform us and move us from glory to glory. Those who love God can trust His goodness, power and will to work all things for our good.
Romans 8:28 (TPT) – So we are convinced that every detail of our lives is continually woven together to fit into God’s perfect plan of bringing good into our lives, for we are his lovers who have been called to fulfill his designed purpose.
Romans 8:28 (NASB) – And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.
The Lord desires to give you greater insight into His plans. God reveals things to us by His Spirit. We have received the Spirit of God so that we might freely know the things that have been given to us by God (1 Corinthians 2:12). He wants you to draw closer to Him so He can give you revelation and understanding of the ways He has brought you to this strategic point and place, as well as where He wants to take you in the future. He has seen your faithfulness and your trust in Him. He wants to reveal the great value in the journey you have been on in growing in Him. He wants to lavish you with His love and He wants you to know your true value. The Lord is inviting you to go deeper in intimacy with Him so you can grow in your knowledge of Him and who you are in Him. He wants you to delight in Him and experience the joy of His presence. You will encounter His heart and will receive new revelation and understanding of His plans and purposes. You will testify of His goodness and faithfulness.
Ephesians 1:9 (NASB) – He made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His kind intention which He purposed in Him.
Jeremiah 33:3 (NASB) – Call to Me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know.
Proverbs 25:2 (NASB) – It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, but the glory of kings is to search out a matter.
At this strategic time where the Lord is unveiling the next step and assignment people are to take in their destiny, the Lord is taking His people deeper and revealing Himself and His plans in a greater way and awakening His people to see themselves the way He sees them. You will be amazed at the ‘gold’ revealed to you!
