A Prophetic Nugget from Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Ministries is connected to this. It’s called “The Presence of the Living God.”
Psalm 96:6 (NASB) Splendor and majesty are before Him, Strength and beauty are in His sanctuary.
Beloved, find your rest in Me. Behold the beauty of My presence. Allow the awe of My majesty to fill your heart and overflow. May that overflow pour forth as a pleasing offering before My throne.
Find strength and resolve in My presence. Allow your faith to be renewed. Recharge and refresh as you sit at My feet. Refuse to allow life to get in the way of finding time with Me, for I AM worthy and indeed your very heart cries out for Me – for the presence of the Living God.
Another Prophetic Nugget from Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Ministries is connected to this. It’s called “Make Me Your Choice.”
Psalm 25:14 (VOICE) ONLY those who stand in awe of the Eternal will have intimacy with Him, and He will reveal His covenant to them.
Beloved, go deeper. Refuse to settle for a surface level relationship with Me. See Me as I AM. Stand in reverential awe. Desperately seeking to know Me. Pursue Me as a priceless jewel. Wrestle for My blessing. Refuse to give up. Be relentless. Bare yourself to Me. Yes, I AM omniscient, but choose to share all the parts of your heart with Me. Make Me your choice.
Choose Me because I chose you. Each sliver of your heart is priceless to Me. I cannot get enough. I’m wild about you! I love to share My thoughts, mysteries, and promises with those who seek Me wholeheartedly. Let that be you. Hold nothing back and refuse to be sidetracked or deterred. Be unshakable in your pursuit and outpouring of love for Me.
A final Prophetic Nugget from Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Ministries is connected to this. It’s called “Yield to the Life-Changing Flow.”
Ephesians 5:26 (VOICE) …He gave Himself up completely to make her His own, washing her clean of all her impurity with water and the powerful presence of His word.
Beloved, allow My Word to wash over you. Take the time to soak in it. Meditate and saturate. Be washed clean, refreshed, and renewed. Allow it to hydrate and soften you, let it remove and restructure areas that are dry and brittle.
And in the same way water refuses to be held back – managing to find cracks and crevices, and then over time changing the shape of even the hardest surfaces, yield to the life-changing flow and be transformed.
A Meditation of the Word called “The Key is to Ask” from Elisa Eaton of Waiting in the Wings is connected to this.
Jeremiah 33:3 (AMP) ‘Call to Me and I will answer you, and tell you [and even show you] great and mighty things, [things which have been confined and hidden], which you do not know and understand and cannot distinguish.’
For several years, I have been learning how important it is for us to ask questions in our daily walk with God. Persistently inquiring of God about scripture, its mysteries, or my prophetic encounters with Him has been like a key that opens the double doors of revelation. While God desires that His children would inquire of Him so that we will learn more, we may not realize that the release of His Kingdom is actually dependent upon it.
One night, during a church worship service, in the Spirit I saw a lock hovering in the sanctuary, over the platform of the worship team. The Lord told me to use my key. I knew from a similar experience in the past that my key was to “Ask, Seek, and Knock”. Specifically, I felt the Spirit prompting me to ask Him for more revelation regarding the anointing of the Seven Spirits of God that had been coming up on my spiritual radar for the last few years. So, I asked Him for more revelation about it, though I knew this would be the beginning of a process. Instantly, I saw the lock open and a flood of rainbow paint flowed out. In my prophetic language, paint can represent anointing.
A few minutes later, the Father brought to mind the story of the Azuza Street revival. I remembered that the revival began because a small group of people were personally seeking God for the manifestation of His Kingdom. In fact, I remembered seeing a similar theme in other stories about revival. These individuals were asking questions; they wanted to know why the Church wasn’t flowing in certain manifestations of the Spirit as it did in the 1st Century. They weren’t pressing in because they were expecting a large revival or wanting to grow a church—they personally weren’t content with the state of the Church as is and the answers they had been given about it. Yet because a small group of pioneers in the Spirit were brave enough to seek God for more, the release of the Kingdom of Heaven to them eventually led to the Azuza Street Revival. The questions this one small group had impacted millions of lives and the Church as we know it today.
That night, God widened the scope of His lesson to me about “asking, seeking, and knocking”. I realized that whether or not the Kingdom comes to earth and how much of it we experience is entirely up to us! We are gatekeepers on the earth, poised to open the door to the King of Glory into our homes, cities, and nations. The release of the Kingdom comes from our fervent pioneering prayers and inquiries, and by having hearts that will not rest until Heaven answers with a heavy rain of God’s Spirit.
Matthew 16:19 (TPT) I will give you the keys of heaven’s kingdom realm to forbid on earth that which is forbidden in heaven, and to release on earth that which is released in heaven.”

Father, may we be diligent to wash in your word and allow its life-changing flow to cause us to flourish. May we seek You in it as the most priceless of jewels, and as we seek You, may we find You and so much more. Thank You for being faithful to bestow wisdom when we ask, and thank You for loving us through no matter what.
