The Lord sent me to research pearls and gave me a word.
A pearl is formed when an intruder slips between one of the two shells of an oyster and the protective layer. The oyster will quickly begin covering the uninvited visitor or irritant with layers of mother-of-pearl until the iridescent gem is formed.
If this resonates with you, let it do what only His words can.
Here’s what I heard the Lord say…
The enemy has sent irritants in hopes to become as a pearl farmer and cause you to give up what is costly.
A pearl farmer?
You see, a pearl farmer strategically places an irritant in hopes a pearl will form around it and the pearl farmer can take it.
Now, you know that I work all things out for the good of My people.
You have walked through dark, grievous and difficult seasons.
Some, more than you ever had imagined.
Paths of pioneering have seemed alone, uncharted and without wind in your sails.
These pioneering paths have produced power. Broken fallow ground. Paved pathways for others. Made way for miracles, signs and wonders to follow.
Your authority has increased because of the path.
Don’t give your pearl away. Stay the course.
The enemy has tried to write his name on the season. He’s wanted to lay hold of the claim to the pearl that was formed.
The testimony. The victory. The mighty work that I did for your good.
He has plotted the pain to take credit for the pearl.
Thereby, hoping to steal the pearl and all her glory.
But you are not a victim!
You are the victor. My victor.
You and I.
Yes, You and I have marked these seasons with My glory, My victory.
You have come out as gold.
I am opening your eyes to see the many warrior angels surrounding you. That you were not and are not alone.
What has even felt as a “barely got by,” an “I should have, could have, would have” moment or even a defeat or failure will be known by you as a “team effort.” As a redemptive moment. As an “I’m still here, the devil didn’t take me out” narrative.
Out of weariness, guilt, shame, despair, felt defeat, the fog of failure and fear and everything else that has been looming over truth, you were almost taken out. Some have even written you off.
With the increased pressure and effects of fatigue, the enemy has brought a sudden onslaught against you in hopes of taking you over the edge, numbing your conviction. Steering your course off, just enough. A slight variance from your conviction to holdfast to My promises, holdfast to My word, holdfast to MY victory you ALREADY carry.
Where the enemy has plotted to turn conviction into shame.
Twisting and tangling humility into humiliation.
You have the final word. And your final word can be mine…”It is finished.”
I declare a deep refreshing and a lifting of every weight that has you held down. The wind has been knocked out of you, the enemy has tried to muffle your voice and prevent the necessary inhale of fresh air. No more. The suffocation ends today. I prophesy the Spirit of God to fill you. Saturate every cell. Let the spiritual hemoglobin carry My Spirit to all facets of your life.
Where clots exist, I call them to dissolve and come into alignment to My word and My purpose. Rest, refuel, re-fire.
It’s time for My Kingdom to advance with exponential force, speed and territory.
My Bride has suffered greatly.
But remember, without the shedding of My blood, there was no remission.
One time! One time is all it took and every sin, all sickness, every slate was wiped clean. Every weapon against you, rendered powerless.
Now, the enemy keeps coming back to remind My bride of the things I wiped off of her slate.
But remember, you, My Bride, carry My victory.
Don’t give him your pearls.
Don’t give him the victory you carry.
IT'S TOO HEAVY A LOAD TO CARRY THE VICTORY AND WHAT THE ENEMY WANTS YOU TO CARRY.
HE WANTS YOU TO CARRY COMMENDATION, SHAME, JEALOUSY, BITTERNESS, SIN AND THE OTHER KNOTS AND TANGLES/AGREEMENTS THAT DON’T BELONG.
I declare a severing of every unholy alliance.
Keep hold of your pearls and watch as you cut through “glass houses “and shatter “glass ceilings. “
