Blessed Beyond a Curse depicts a zealous one, standing in worship and intercession in the deepest of nights surrounded by reminders of His promises and knowing without a doubt that joy comes in the morning.
- Numbers 23:20 (GW) …He has blessed, and I can’t change it.
- Isaiah 54:9-10 (NLT) “Just as I swore in the time of Noah that I would never again let a flood cover the earth, so now I swear that I will never again be angry and punish you. For the mountains may move and the hills disappear, but even then my faithful love for you will remain. My covenant of blessing will never be broken,” says the Lord, who has mercy on you.
- Numbers 25:11-13 (NKJV) Phinehas the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, has turned back My wrath from the children of Israel, because he was zealous with My zeal among them, so that I did not consume the children of Israel in My zeal. Therefore say, ‘Behold, I give to him My covenant of peace; and it shall be to him and his descendants after him a covenant of an everlasting priesthood, because he was zealous for his God, and made atonement for the children of Israel.’ “
- Ephesians 1:3 (VOICE) Blessed be God, the Father of our Lord Jesus the Anointed One, who grants us every spiritual blessing in these heavenly realms where we live in the Anointed—not because of anything we have done, but because of what He has done for us.
A Prophetic Nugget from our Dyed4you Ministries blog is connected to this. It is called “Blessed Beyond a Curse.”
Numbers 23:20 (VOICE) Look here, I received a word of blessing, and He has spoken a blessing. I cannot take it back.
Beloved, you are blessed beyond a curse for what I bless no man can curse. My word is Truth and nothing and no one can stand against it. I AM sovereign and My word will not return void. Wait upon My word. Maintain your focus on Me and delight yourself in My presence.
Refuse to be tempted to pursue the favor of man, for My favor is steadfast and unchanging unlike the fickle favor of man. Remain true, for without fail My showers of blessings will come in due season and will saturated you beyond your ability to contain them.
You may constantly feel like the obstacles to your blessings are insurmountable. What God promises, He delivers! His words to your heart will not fall apart when pressure is applied. You walk in covenant with the Father, meaning what He has- you have! But what about those moments when it feels like the world is caving in, there is no way out, guilt eats at your heart, and fear at your mind? The Holy Spirit murmurs to your spirit now, “Find another way”. God is not constrained by earthly laws of science or physics or the boundaries of flesh, and you have what He has! Ask the Father to open your eyes to the creative and maybe peculiar ways He has to thwart the enemy. Whispering to the mountain to move may be more effective than dynamiting your way through, that dunamis power you carry doesn’t just manifest in brute force but in faith, gentleness, and joy! Do not fear to attempt what others say is impossible or even stupid- you don’t answer to them and neither does your faith rest in them. Surrender to the Father’s wisdom and creativity as your forge your way to meet His promises. Find another way my sweet friend, may the Holy Spirit guide your steps and your heart be happy and delight in the magnificence of a Father who confounds the wise with the impossible.
A Prophetic Nugget from our Dyed4you Ministries blog is connected to this. It is called “Uncontainable Blessing.”
Genesis 15:5 (NET) The LORD took him outside and said, “Gaze into the sky and count the stars – if you are able to count them!” Then he said to him, “So will your descendants be.”
Beloved, My promises for you are plenteous and steadfast. Just as the rainbow is a reminder of My promises, may the stars be a reminder of the overwhelming blessings in store for those who love Me. For just as I promised Abraham more descendants than there are stars in the sky, so My promises for those who love Me are an uncontainable blessing.
Fix your gaze on Me and make Me your first choice. Throughout the ages My heart-cry remains the same: that I would be your God and that you would be My people. I hold nothing back from those who hold nothing back from Me. So delight in Me, beloved, and let your zeal be unmatched. May your passion be a flame that burns so brightly those around you can’t help but be ignited. May it serve as a lighthouse that guides the way to unfettered access to Me and the fullness of My love, which knows no bounds.
Another Prophetic Nugget from our Dyed4you Ministries blog is connected to this. It is called “Vast Blessings.”
Romans 4:20-21 (TPT) …because he was mighty in faith and convinced that God had all the power needed to fulfill his promises, Abraham glorified God!
Beloved, will you allow Me to be glorified through you? Will you expand your faith and stand fast in My promises? I will not love you any less if you are unable, but know that the beauty of My glory shining through your trusting heart speaks volumes about who I AM without uttering a word.
Will you take Me at My word? Will you allow My promises to stir hope in your heart? Will you remain steadfast in your hope even when My promises seem to tarry or when circumstances look bleak? I AM worthy of your trust, beloved. Stir up your faith! Look to the stars and remind yourself My blessings are vast and far more reaching than you will ever be able to know. Refuse to allow your blessings to be stolen through doubt and unbelief. Take Me at My word and refuse to be moved for I AM God.
The lyrics to Israel Houghton & New Breed’s “Trading My Sorrows” are connected to this.
I’m trading my sorrows, And I’m trading my shame
And I’m laying it down, For the joy of the Lord
And I’m trading my sickness, And I’m trading my pain
I’m laying it, laying it, laying it down, For the joy of the Lord
Yes Lord, yes Lord, yes yes Lord Amen
I’m pressed but not crushed. Persecuted, not abandoned
Struck down but not destroyed, And I am blessed beyond the curse
For His promise will endure, That His joy is going to be my strength
Though my sorrows may last for the night, His joy comes with the morning
A word called “Life Changing Promises!” from June Reinke of Prophetic Light is connected to this.
My promises to you are life changing, says the LORD. I will stretch out My hands to you and give you multiple blessings that you could not even imagine. For they will astound you. They will challenge you to a new level of greatness in Me. They will lift you into new heights of My glory and you will excel in Me and My Kingdom. My promises are permanent and fixed in My Kingdom. As I have declared them to you in the company of angels that serve Me, they will implement what I have decreed over you in DUE season. Do not fret about who, what, when, where or how. Let things that I have promised to you unfold, even as My Word is infallible, says the LORD.
Let your heart be filled with joy, says the LORD. For nothing is past the point of possibility with ME. Remember Sarah and Abraham of old, and the birthing of Issac. He was their miracle. I have one for you. Do not despise the times and seasons that I have set forth for you as though they are a burdensome thing for you. For I have them in My hands, even as I have you. I will develop you and furnish you and prepare you for all that I have for you to accomplish and embrace, so enjoy the journey. It is with Me, from Me and for Me and My kingdom, says the LORD, and I will fulfill My Word concerning you in MY TIME.
And one other word called from June Reinke of Prophetic Light is connected to this. It is called “My Promises are Unimpeachable.”
My promises are unimpeachable for those who will receive them by faith, says the Lord. I cannot change. My Word cannot change. It does not change because of times and seasons. It does not change because of your circumstances. It does not change because of persecutions. It does not change because of any assault against it. It remains the same, yesterday, today and forever, even as I do, says the Lord. My Word contains My promises, and I have sent My prophets to speak a clear and now word to you. Listen. Believe. Receive. For My word will not return void or unproductive onto Me. It will accomplish what I have sent it forth to do for you as you release your faith. I release My promises within My Word for you. Heaven and earth will pass away, but My written and declared and decreed Word will not pass away. It will accomplish in your life what it was sent to do. I will see to it, says the Lord. BELIEVE! Believe My Word. Believe in Me as your Lord and God and so shall you be established. Believe in My prophets and so shall you prosper in that which I sent: My infallible, undefeatable, NOW Word for you, says the Lord.
Let My Word dwell richly in your hearts and become what it decrees, says the Lord. Let faith arise in your heart. For as your faith arises, so shall My Word arise and bring forth the fruit of it in your life. Faith comes by hearing My recorded and NOW sent word for you. BELIEVE AND RECEIVE. Hold fast to it and do not let it go! My promises are written and spoken and done for those who embrace them, says the Lord. WILL YOU BELIEVE TO RECEIVE what I have authored for you, says the Lord. For nothing can stop me from giving you the desires of your heart except your lack of faith and trust in Me. I have spoken it and I speak again and again. Even My word is written upon the tablets of your heart! It will come forth in fulfillment as you meditate upon it, speak it and remember My Word. Remember that I watch over My Word, I hasten My Word to perform it for you. I sent My word and healed you and delivered you from all destruction, and healing is in every area of your life as you BELIEVE and RECEIVE all that I AM and all that I have spoken onto you, says the Lord. My promises are yes and so be it to those who believe. BELIEVE! Will you believe? Believe in ME and My unimpeachable promises for you, says the Lord and receive the fullness of the blessings that I will pour out upon you, in an unstoppable and unimpeachable way, says the Lord.
The name of the silk in this piece is Faithful to the Call. It is a mismatched pair made up of a combination of silks, Passionate Abandon and Your Name, which capture the intense zeal we should walk in and the importance of our identity being defined by God.
Father, thank You that we are blessed beyond a curse and that Your promises endure. We are blessed to be Your children! Thank You for loving us, thank You for being faithful, and thank You for Your enduring word and promises that are always true.
