As we were in worship (August 18, 2016), I fell asleep somehow and there I saw the vision of a man polishing and cleaning what looked like diamonds.
In another, I saw the same man working like a Potter molding clay pieces.
There in his possession were a few, handpicked colourful stones and he searched and selected them.
One by one he took his time and rubbed them till they shone. Then I heard a whisper, “Pearls and Gems.” That’s when I woke up..
Shortly after, the Holy Spirit started to minister to me as I lay there in my bed. Then I heard again, “I AM doing a work!”
The Holy Spirit soon began to speak to me and say, “You are My Precious Jewels.
You have been polished after the similitude of a palace.
You have been crowned and dressed with ornaments; My Precious ones, My crown and diadem, My Beloveds. My daughter.
There is nothing I would not do for you. No mountain I would not move, no sea I would not divide, O daughter of Zion!
Your beauty is unmatched. I’ve made you fearfully and wonderfully. I have crowned you with favor and graced thee with glory.
My child, I have loved thee before the foundations, predestined thee to rule beside Me. I have made thee a Priest. Wear your crown well!”
Women, let us know our worth and value.
You are special, you are incredible, you are amazing.
You are that “good thing” that brings “favor.” Everyone may not know it, they may know and refuse to accept it and refuse to treat you as such.
But GOD knows and He is doing a work in us do we may shine and exude the essence and presence of God.
Pearls and gems are so unique and rare, not everyone is able to afford them, but only those of a certain class.
Once a “gem in the rough” is discovered, it takes the “gem masters” a considerable time and lots of efforts to cut the different facets.
So it is with God. He is working in each of us to create in us a unique gem. And for God, the Master Gemologist to smooth the rough edges and polish us and cut the different facets of His character.
It is vital that we feel like gems in His expert hands. We have to allow Him to work in us.
