It Is Time To Flourish – A Word by Rev. Melissa Pearce
Over the last couple of weeks, I kept hearing the Lord say, “It is time to flourish!”
I believe this word is specifically for those who watched God move in the lives of others, but have not yet seen the awaited blessing of His hand in their own live. Due to the delay of God’s timing, the enemy has tried to infiltrate your mind with doubt. You have battled questions as “God, will you do it for me,” “God, am I not qualified,” “God, am I missing something” or “God, did I hear you correctly?”
Questions like these often indicate that there is something amiss with our ideology concerning God and who we are in Him. Because of our skewed interpretation of God’s willingness to perform in our lives, we lose sight of His true nature towards us. The enemy wants you to displace your focus. God is good, and He desires to bless you. He knows you; He knows your needs, and your desires. He will always act like a loving, nurturing Father towards you.
The spotlight is on you! Would you waiver in your true identity in Him?
Your interpretation of the unanswered questions has caused your heart to falter and to become unsettled. In a place of unrest, there is no flourishment. Unrest questions as they relate to the true nature of God, His intentions for you, and who you are in Him can leave you depleted and withered.
No matter your season, God’s intent is for you to flourish.
Flourishment comes with the realization that God sees the best in you. He has your interests at heart, and His plans of hope for your life.
And he shall be like a tree firmly planted [and tended] by the streams of water, ready to bring forth its fruit in its season; its leaf also shall not fade or wither; and everything he does shall prosper [and come to maturity] Psalm 1:3 (AMPC).
Below is an encouraging word that Abba Father spoke into my spirit. As you read the following word, my prayer is that your hearts and minds will become repositioned, thus becoming the breakthrough you need to advance in the Kingdom of God.
“My child, it has been a long time since your heart was at rest in Me.
I am washing over you. You thought I would not visit you to engage with you in this capacity, but I yearn to engage – to fellowship with you.
I never stopped delighting in you. Contrary to what you believe, I do delight in you, for you are pleasurable to Me. You are significant to Me.
Do you hear Me? You are significant to Me. It’s not what you do for Me, My love, but it is who you are to Me. You are My beloved child.
I never want to see you hurting – in pain – in turmoil – because I know it is not what I have destined for you. My freedom is where I long for you to abide, to reside, and to inhabit.
My child, don’t you see? I have always been for you, but you believe it so for others but not yourself. My love, take your inheritance and operate in what I am giving you. Don’t be bashful, but fully receive – fully accept my offering. It is my gift to you.
You want greatness. You want to achieve greatness, but define greatness. Do you define it as to what you achieve, or do you define it as living in the place of possibility with Me?
You see, My love, one places emphasis on what you do, who acknowledges you, the accolades, the rewards, the acknowledgments of man. The other rests in who I called you to be – the place of great intimacy – the place of great possibilities that relinquish when we are abiding together.
The lies that the enemy has planted within you – “that you would not be significant,” “that you would not amount” to anyone, have been the beast you have been fighting all your life. Even when interacting with others, you question your abilities. You question, “Do I measure up?”
The answer to those questions is YES!
You are significant because I have placed my value in you. You are significant because I have deemed it so. You are My child – My love – My Bride – My partner – My friend – My heart.
Do you not see? You are significant because your worth to Me is greater than anything – more than you can conceive or achieve.
My love, see yourself as significant. Significant means you are relevant. Significant means you are important. Significant means you are valuable. Significant means you carry My heart.
My child, allow the Word to wash over you in this season. Embrace my love from a fresh perspective. Let it be inviting and invigorating.
Allow my love to consume you – to demolish fears – to conquer your doubts and insecurities. My child, this is the season of you FLOURISHING IN ME.
Flourish means that the weeds (those inconsistent messages) are removed, and you remain true to the core knowledge of Who I am, Who I am for you, and who I created you to be. Flourish means no longer beating yourself up for what you are not, but resting in who you are right now with Me.
Different areas within you are budding while other areas are taking a greater root within Me.
You display my beauty well. You display my beauty well – I needed to repeat Myself, for at that moment, you doubt your beauty.
I see no ashes – I see beauty. I see no disqualifications – I see qualification. I see no restrictions – I see freedom. I see beauty discovering her true calling, stepping into what I have ordained, and releasing her voice with Mine to bring my Kingdom to earth.
My love, let’s go on a journey to discover Beauty within you – for you to recognize Beauty for who He is and who He is creating you to be.
No more lashing yourself – no more judgments – no more criticism – no more calculations – no more scales – no more validating yourself through numbers; just walking in Beauty. My beauty that I have lavished upon you.
My love, the undo pressure you have placed upon yourself is not of Me driving you. Still, you are operating in the capacity because you are trying to achieve significance, instead of realizing you are significant.
Your heart seeks for My rest. Your heart seeks My approval. Your heart seeks My joy and peace. Here is the beauty of what your heart desires; it is already available to you. You need to receive what has been given to you, not allowing the enemy to cause you to be unstable.
So My love, rest in True Beauty. Don’t get caught in the outward adornments, but get caught up in Me again. Let’s begin a new adventure that is filled with all of your heart’s desires and with My joy, peace, and love.”
Remember My child, this is the season of you FLOURISHING IN ME.
I pray that you embrace this season of flourishment with God. Don’t allow the enemy to infiltrate your thoughts with doubt of God’s love for you, nor who He destined you to become.
