You Were Made For Glory! His Glory! ~ It’s A New Year, New You! God is Releasing Many For His Glory!
Recently, as I lay before the Lord digesting all the things He has done in my life over the past decade, the past year, and especially the past few months, I began to pray about the new year and what He has in store for me, my family, and His bride. I asked Jesus, “What do you want to show me Father? What can I do for you? What is on your heart Jesus?” Instantly a brilliant vision flashed before my eyes. What I saw was a statue or trophy-like person clothed in brilliance and splendor beyond any words; sparkling, dazzling, shining, breathtaking! This trophy-like person was rotating continually upon a platform. I was thinking, “What a prize! Beautiful!” Jesus broke into my thoughts and said, “Beloved YOU are my prize! This is your new man. This is who you really are. This is how I see you. Behold, you are new! Behold, truly I make all things new.” His expression was that of utter joy and delight. I was speechless. I watched Jesus take great care and detail in the finishing touches. He pulled out various unique tools, brushes, cloths, and the like as He did this. I watched Him place oil on the cloth (His anointing) and cover the statue head to toe with great care and satisfaction. I could tell He was overjoyed that that this “new creation” was nearly complete. I was mesmerized by the entire process as I realized this represents the end of a long and painful journey for me. I’ve been remade! When Jesus was satisfied with all His finishing touches, He lifted me gently off the pedestal I was on and put me amongst an army of people, a beautiful sea of people, who had also stayed the course and allowed Him to finish the work He had started in them. What a sight!!
The latest leg on this journey called life has been more difficult and different than any other time in my life. Right now many of you are also feeling this way. But you are also in this finishing phase with Jesus! Don’t give up! Like me, you have gone through the flood and the fire, trials and temptations, hurts and traumas, betrayals and misunderstandings that are beyond any human understanding, but the end is in sight! As I thought back to all the things that tried to kill me, be it physically, emotionally, or spiritually, I saw the statue take a hard punch to the stomach. The statue doubled over in pain as dust and dirt shot out from it. Instantly the following scripture rose up within my spirit. Beloved receive this! “If you only look at us, you might well miss the brightness. We carry this precious Message around in the unadorned clay pots of our ordinary lives. That’s to prevent anyone from confusing God’s incomparable power with us. As it is, there’s not much chance of that. You know for yourselves that we’re not much to look at. We’ve been surrounded and battered by troubles, but we’re not demoralized; we’re not sure what to do, but we know that God knows what to do; we’ve been spiritually terrorized, but God hasn’t left our side; we’ve been thrown down, but we haven’t broken. What they did to Jesus, they do to us—trial and torture, mockery and murder; what Jesus did among them, he does in us—he lives! Our lives are at constant risk for Jesus’ sake, which makes Jesus’ life all the more evident in us. While we’re going through the worst, you’re getting in on the best!We’re not keeping this quiet, not on your life. Just like the psalmist who wrote, ‘I believed it, so I said it,’ we say what we believe. And what we believe is that the One who raised up the Master Jesus will just as certainly raise us up with you, alive. Every detail works to your advantage and to God’s glory: more and more grace, more and more people, more and more praise! So we’re not giving up. How could we! Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without his unfolding grace. These hard times are small potatoes compared to the coming good times, the lavish celebration prepared for us. There’s far more here than meets the eye. The things we see now are here today, gone tomorrow. But the things we can’t see now will last forever” (2 Corinthians 4:8-13 Message Version). So you see, God is using these things as part of His tools to consecrate and separate us for His glory! Right now, God is applying the finishing touches and we are about to be perfectly positioned and aligned together for a mighty purpose, for destiny! It’s Jesus in us that makes us so beautiful!

The last thing I saw Jesus do before He took me off the potters wheel was reach inside me with both hands and massage and mold my heart into His image. He continued to do this until every hurt, wound, trauma, offense, anything not of Him, was completely gone. This made the story of the potter’s wheel even more endearing to me (Jeremiah 18)! Beloved, it’s a new day! Believe it! We have and are being “RE-born” for such at time as this! Don’t allow anyone or anything to take you off the potter’s wheel. You have come to far to give up now. Stay on the wheel, withstand the blows! You have come to far to allow anyone to take you off that wheel! Don’t do it! Allow Jesus to finish the work He has started! It’s going to be worth it! We are being made for glory….HIS GLORY!!!!
A TURNAROUND FOR YOU..
A word by Dana Jarvis
I decree you are making the spiritual journey from the bondage of Egypt into your promised land of destiny. I know you have grown weary. Do not let the murmurings and complaining attitudes rule you. It causes the faith to waiver! Your focus is upon the cup of bitter waters that you are currently drinking from.
Rest assured that your God is making these bitter waters sweet!
You shall taste and see that the Lord is good! You are going to see such extravagance in your daily life. He is delivering much into your hands so reach up and take hold. Just as he was with you before, he is with you now. You are going to drink deep of the Living Waters. The bitter waters of life have tried to steal all joy.
However I hear the Lord say, “It is done, I am the Lord who heals you. I am the Lord who will restore you. I am the Lord who will provide your every need. I am the One that is making the bitter waters sweet!”
I feel so strongly that God is removing your cup of bitter waters you have had to drink for so long. He is causing a turnaround for you in a situation that you desperately need him to move. I am speaking to several and know this word is for you. Even as the Lord led Moses and the children of Israel from their bondage at the Red Sea, it still took one step of faith. One step of faith is all it takes to cause a release from all of this. Take a moment and sow into good ground by giving into Spirit Fuel. For just a contribution of $25, $50, or even $100 or more given into Spirit Fuel is an active step and good ground on which to sow. It is a powerful ministry reaching the world for Christ. As you sow that offering, it is that act of faith that will cause the Red Sea where you are standing to part in your life. The bitter cup will be removed and the sweetness of the Lord shall begin to flow!
