So I shared a word yesterday on live about being a Diamond in the Father’s Hands and then in my Facebook memories today, this pops up where I had written and shared before several years ago.
I wanted share it as it goes along perfect with yesterday’s live!
You are that Diamond in the Father’s Hands!
The Island of Misfit Toys
Many times we may feel we are like those on the island of misfit toys.
Somehow our maker made a mistake and now we are cast aside, or unprofitable, and of no use to anyone or anything.
We know there is something deep inside of us that is different and unique. It is calling out to us saying its not over, you can make it, don’t give up, it won’t be long, God has a plan for you.
This morning I could see God working behind the scenes in a hidden room. I could not see what he was doing at first, but then his hand outstretched toward me and I saw a handful of different stones.
He was bringing out the most beautiful diamond that lies within each of us. I can still see those stones so clearly in the Father’s Hand!
Deep below the surface and down where no one sees the pressure, so deep where the fire gets turned up to what seems unbearable levels, God is doing something mighty in those deep places of your spirit and life.
If you are willing to give yourself to the process, you might just find a new sparkle on the other side.
I know, it’s hard to see the potential when all you feel is pain, but keep going! Don’t stop. You are not alone!
You see, a Diamond is just a piece of charcoal that handled stress exceptionally well. Just remember, a new sparkle is waiting for you on the other side!
As I looked upon these stones in the Father’s Hand, I heard the Words, “Diamonds in the Rough!”
Yes we are his Diamonds, but yet a bit of “coalish carbon” remains. The Master Jeweler knows exactly what is needed to shape us according to the best design and make us shine.
He uses the hammer of hardship and the anvil of angst to knock off our rough edges. He takes the file of frustration and shaves off our impatience.
When certain people tend to annoy, keep in mind that it is by design! When sandpaper people rub you the wrong way, Rejoice! You are being buffed and polished!
I hear The LORD say, “You are My Diamonds, My priceless Treasure. You are My lively Stones which men tried and threw away, but you are the ones I have chosen and are precious in My Sight.
You are a Diamond in My Hands, My Child and they cannot break you!”
Your cries have broken open a dead atmosphere and released power!
Miracle working power!
“Can these bones live?”
My answer to him was, “Yes, Oh Lord you alone know!”
Then The LORD said “Prophesy!”
Feeling much like Ezekiel must have felt, I spoke with everything in me, “Come from the four winds, O breath of God, and breathe on every area of my life that needs that resurrection power, reconciliation, that resuscitating touch, those areas that need your deliverance and saving grace, those areas that need your healing and abundance to flow.
May everything spring to life through Your Words, Your Breath and Your Touch!
Come Alive, Come Alive, Everything in this valley around me, Come Alive!” In Jesus’ mighty Name!
Hiding in a Cave
David hid in a cave waiting upon God!
He asked the very same question, “What have I done?”
You were created for something greater, and yet you are chased by your circumstances that are sometimes beyond your understanding and control.
Like David had to wait, we wait. Sometimes, when we are in our cave, we find our answer.
I know many of you are facing storms and hiding in your caves right now.
Press into Jesus! Push through!
Through the harsh winds, through the heavy rains beating upon you, through the hail, you will hear his voice rumble as a mighty thunder in the middle of it all. He waits patiently in your rain, your thunder, and your lightning to lead you gently to safe harbor.
Still as your sails are battered and your hopes may lie shattered, believe in the One who never fails! The great I AM!!
