Anointed and Appointed – Dyed4you Art

Anointed and Appointed is both an invitation and a reminder. It invites us to walk in the fullness of the call God has for us, while reminding us that we have been anointed and appointed for the journey ahead. 

  • Psalm 119:105 (KJV) Thy word [is] a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
  • Ephesians 6:14-19 (TPT) Put on truth as a belt to strengthen you to stand in triumph. Put on holiness as the protective armor that covers your heart. Stand on your feet alert, then you’ll always be ready to share the blessings of peace. In every battle, take faith as your wrap-around shield, for it is able to extinguish the blazing arrows coming at you from the Evil One! Embrace the power of salvation’s full deliverance, like a helmet to protect your thoughts from lies. And take the mighty razor-sharp Spirit-sword of the spoken Word of God. Pray passionately in the Spirit, as you constantly intercede with every form of prayer at all times. Pray the blessings of God upon all his believers. And pray also that God’s revelation would be released through me every time I preach the wonderful mystery of the hope-filled gospel.
  • 1 Samuel 1:27 (NIV) I prayed for this child, and the LORD has granted me what I asked of him.
  • 1 Samuel 2:1 (NKJV) And Hannah prayed and said: “My heart rejoices in the LORD; My horn is exalted in the LORD. I smile at my enemies, Because I rejoice in Your salvation.

This image came together with three main elements, beginning of course with the Word of God. The bible in this piece is a family bible from the 1800s. It reminds us not only to make the Word our focus, but also to honor the spiritual legacy we’ve been given. God has ordained our past. He picked the lineage we would come from with intention. 

A mountain road overlays the image of the bible. This reminds us our walk is a journey rather than a destination. Each choice and decision builds on the next. Note how the guardrail extends along the pages of the Word, this is a reminder that the Word is our guide – our guardrail keeping us from careening into harmful territory. 

And finally, we have our yielded one – wise enough to take a knee before our sovereign Lord. In his hands rests a sword, the visual reminder we’ve been well-equipped. Truly we have been anointed and appointed for the road ahead, so may we walk with confident expectation and bring God glory. 

A Prophetic Nugget from “Daily Downloads from Heaven” by Meghan Williams is connected to this. It’s called “Created with a Purpose.”

Matthew 5:13 (AMP) You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has lost its taste (purpose), how can it be made salty? It is no longer good for anything, but to be thrown out and walked on by people [when the walkways are wet and slippery].

Beloved, you have been created with a purpose for a call. Simply being you – all I’ve created you to be – and yielding to the plans I have for you (which are good plans) demonstrates who I AM. You are created in My image, and created to bear fruit. 

What then is the purpose of an apple tree that bears no fruit? It is purposeless, and though secondary (and lesser) use may be found for it, it is not fulfilling its call. In the same way, refuse to settle for anything less than the fullness of all I’ve created you for. Trust Me to lead, yield to My direction, and bear fruit. 

A Word called “Simply Shine” from Elisa Eaton of Waiting in the Wings is connected to this.

Beloved, in the midst of darkness, resist the temptation to believe that you are powerless. I have not sent you into the world unequipped and unprotected. In fact, you are a mighty one in Me, capable of overcoming any obstacle that stands in your way. The power that dwells within you is My light, and that light is love.

The foolish seek and exalt earthly forms of power. They accumulate wealth, knowledge, cunning, the favor of men, or physical might. Yet all earthly power pales in comparison to the power of love. Just as water has the ability to erode rock until it shatters and crumbles, so too can the light of love within you overcome the darkness. I urge you not to underestimate what resides within you.

In the face of insurmountable odds, unleash My love. Allow your joy to lift heavy circumstances. Watch as your peace settles the greatest of storms. Your patience, kindness, and goodness has the ability to soften hardened hearts. Your gentleness will heal the broken spirit. The fruit of love that you bear by My Spirit will always shift the atmosphere, so hold nothing back.

There’s no need for you to fight the darkness, beloved. You don’t have to kick, scream, or struggle. Remember that the very nature of light simply makes no room for darkness! So I call you to simply be, simply love—simply shine. 

Galatians 5:22–23 (TPT) But the fruit produced by the Holy Spirit within you is divine love in all its varied expressions: joy that overflows, peace that subdues, patience that endures, kindness in action, a life full of virtue, faith that prevails, gentleness of heart, and strength of spirit. Never set the law above these qualities, for they are meant to be limitless.

Matthew 5:14-16 (TPT) And you, beloved, are the light of the world. A city built on a hilltop cannot be hidden. Similarly it would be silly to light a lamp and then hide it under a bowl. When someone lights a lamp, she puts it on a table or a desk or a chair, and the light illumines the entire house. You are like that illuminating light. Let your light shine everywhere you go, that you may illumine creation, so men and women everywhere may see your good actions, may see creation at its fullest, may see your devotion to Me, and may turn and praise your Father in heaven because of it.

A word called “Be Brave and Bold” from June Reinke of Prophetic Light is connected to this. This reminds us we are strong in the Lord, that He makes us bold as a lion, and that the enemy cannot win against us with the Lord on our side. It encourages us not to be afraid or intimidated, and that as we stand fast in the Word and in His Spirit that the enemy will run and cower in fear. Refuse to bend. Stay armed and be triumphant.

Another Prophetic Nugget from “Daily Downloads from Heaven” by Meghan Williams is connected to this. It’s called “YHVH Tsur (the Lord my Strength).”

Psalm 144:1 (JUB) Blessed be the LORD my strength, who trains my hands for the battle and my fingers for the war:

Beloved, I will never send you into battle unarmed, unequipped, or unprepared. Behold I know the plans I have for you, and they are good. I prepare each step – both the easy and the difficult, the joyous and the trying – I prepare them all and each has purpose. 

Each step builds upon the last and each step prepares you for what lies ahead. Resist the urge to rush. Resist the urge to tarry. Stay in My flow and trust My timing. Trust My leading. Trust Me to prepare you. And know I AM your strength. 

Psalm 144:1-2 (NOG) Thank Yahweh, my Tsur, who trained my hands to fight and my fingers to do battle, my merciful one, my Metsuda, my stronghold, and my savior, my Magen, the one in whom I take refuge, and the one who brings people under my authority.

Another Prophetic Nugget from “Daily Downloads from Heaven” by Meghan Williams is connected to this. It’s called “Enjoy the Journey.”

Job 40:7 (VOICE) Eternal One:  Now, prepare yourself and gather your courage like a warrior. Prepare yourself for the task at hand. I’ll be asking the questions, now— you will supply the answers.

Beloved, every task I set before you is one I’ve equipped you to achieve. Resist the urge to feel overwhelmed or incapable, and rather step forward in bold confidence in Me knowing I will not lead you astray. Trust My direction, and trust Me to lead you rightly. 

Resist the urge to focus on the destination point, and instead embrace the journey – recognize it for the character-building growth experience it is. Each moment and each step is valuable – embrace each one as the gift it is. Enjoy the journey. 

A post by Meghan Williams from is connected to this. It’s called “Greater Things.”

Genesis 1:14 (ESV) And God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night. And let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years,

We serve the God of all creation. The sun and moon and stars were created by His hand. Every mystery of the universe is known to Him. And He chooses not simply to have relationship with us, but to empower us with His Spirit. He desires to move in us and through us. But just as you wouldn’t trust a two year old with a sharp kitchen knife, so God gives us time to mature and opportunities to grow our character. He does this so we can be entrusted with the “greater things” He has planned.

How can we speed up that process? In some respects we can’t. There are certain processes you simply can’t rush, and maturation is one of them. You can however smooth the way by not hindering the process, and by submitting to it fully. That is accomplished by being willing and yielded, which means trusting Him and releasing your need to understand. It means embracing trials because you know they’re building godly character in you. It means abiding with Him and walking out the Word – loving the unlovable, being cloaked in humility, putting God and His Kingdom first. 

As we embrace this lifestyle of radical faith, we become increasingly trustworthy for Him to move in and through. When we are seasoned enough not to allow pride to seep in if He performs miracles through our hands, we have positioned ourselves to be able to be used. Once we can be trusted to do whatever He asks whether it “makes sense” or not, we have positioned ourselves to walk boldly into situations where He can move in power through us. Once we are mature enough to hold close the secrets He shares with us, we have positioned ourselves for Him to share more. Once our hearts are moved with compassion rather than judgement, He can trust us to be His hands and feet to the hurt, the broken, and the lost.

Trust Him to know what you need and what you are ready for. Trust Him to grow and gently correct you as needed. Embrace that process, and be willing to be bold in your choice of how to live for Him. Boldness is about confident, decisive action. Bold doesn’t have to be loud or showy (though sometimes it can be). Be bold in your faith walk, and trust God to meet you there. Then enjoy the journey!

John 14:12 (NET) I tell you the solemn truth, the person who believes in me will perform the miraculous deeds that I am doing, and will perform greater deeds than these, because I am going to the Father.

Mark 16:17 (NLT) These miraculous signs will accompany those who believe: They will cast out demons in my name, and they will speak in new languages.

Jeremiah 33:3 (ESV) Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known.

A Meditation of the Word called “The King’s Sword: The Multifaceted Word of God” from Elisa Eaton of Waiting in the Wings is connected to this.

Revelation 19:15 (NKJV) Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.

The concept of the Sword of the Spirit was something that the Father didn’t want us to overlook…He continuously dropped the word  “Excalibur” in my spirit. Now, I’m not very well-versed in Arthurian Legend, but I knew that Excalibur was the name of the sword of King Arthur. I also knew the story of the sword in the stone; Arthur’s ability to remove Excalibur from the stone proved His right to rule.

With a little time and prayer, I realized that God was pointing us to Revelation 19, where our coming King has a sharp sword going out of His mouth. I realized that God wants us to see that, by being one with Him, we are wielding the very same sword—the King’s Sword.

As I continued in prayer over the prophetic word, one evening, I had a vision of an angel. He came to me and handed me a sword. The hilt of the sword was encrusted with multi-colored jewels that created a rainbow. I was told that this was the Sword of Might. This is not the first time that an angel has come to hand me this sword. However, it looks different each time, and the differences are intentional so that I pick up on the prophetic nuances. Also, when an angel hands me this sword, I always get the sense that they are returning a piece of my armor to me, as though I forgot that I owned it or misplaced it during my journeys.

I have been learning that the Lord would like me—and each believer really—to tap into the anointing that abides within us and more expertly wield the Sword of the Spirit—His Word. This really echoes what He spoke through the prophetic word called “Draw Upon Your Inheritance”. All too often I confess that I can’t do something or don’t know something until I realize that the One who abides with me has all of the answers. It is every believer’s birthright to access their inheritance in the Spirit, but it does take work on our part to learn how to draw from God.

I inquired of the Lord about why this sword is called the Sword of Might when it has all of the colors of the rainbow (instead of blue, which represents the Spirit of Might). He impressed upon me that this sword is the Sword of the Spirit, and in fact, all of the Spirits are a part of the sword. It is a Sword of Might because the Spirit knows the Will of God and we as believers have been commissioned to legally enforce His Will in the earth. As I pressed in, He reminded me of 2 Corinthians 10:3-6:

(NKJV) For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare [are] not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.

Having the Spirit of the Living God means that we as believers carry with us the One who perfectly knows the Will of God in every matter. The Spirit knows and searches the depths of the mind of God but He also knows our mind, our depths—the thoughts and intents of our heart. God is very much longing to complete the transformation of our minds and bring us into the fullness of our maturity in Christ. Like the picture of the children of Israel crossing over the river Jordan, God longs to bring us into our rest and give us rest from our enemies.

However, this means war. It will require dealing with every word and thought that is not under submission to His Word. He desires to address every matter that plagues His people and put an end to every argument. God is calling us to walk in the fullness of the authority that Christ purchased for us. To do so, we need to step into our royal mantle as kings and priests and mount our white horses.

Psalm 149:6-9 (NKJV) [Let] the high praises of God [be] in their mouth, And a two-edged sword in their hand, To execute vengeance on the nations, And punishments on the peoples; To bind their kings with chains, And their nobles with fetters of iron; To execute on them the written judgment–This honor have all His saints. Praise the LORD!

Daniel 7:9-10 (NKJV)  “I watched till thrones were put in place, And the Ancient of Days was seated; His garment [was] white as snow, And the hair of His head [was] like pure wool. His throne [was] a fiery flame, Its wheels a burning fire; A fiery stream issued And came forth from before Him. A thousand thousands ministered to Him; Ten thousand times ten thousand stood before Him. The court was seated, And the books were opened.

He reminded me of a teaching series by Robert Henderson called “Operating in the Courts of Heaven.” Henderson teaches that Christ’s death was the greatest legal transaction in history. It included everything that was needed to bring the full manifestation of the Kingdom of Heaven to Earth. The problem is there has been no agency to take what was done on the cross and the verdict rendered to execute it into place. That agency is us, the ekklesia (the assembly) of God that Christ said He would build. The ekklesia is recognized and registered in heaven (Hebrews 12:23) and has the right to take the verdict from heaven and execute it into place until everything is moved out of the way that is resisting a full manifestation of the Kingdom of God.

In order to do a thorough job of executing this finished work, I truly believe we need the full manifestation of the Seven Spirits of God. Revelation 19 asserts that Christ “judges and makes war” in His return. But it is also impressed upon me that Christ is not alone but fully backed by His army, His Body. We need to be able to see how God sees and shine His light so brightly that darkness has no place to hide. Finding God’s will in every matter takes weighing it through all of the filters of Christ’s anointing.

This is a series of Prophetic Nuggets from “Daily Downloads from Heaven” by Meghan Williams that are connected by scripture / theme. It is a series of five Prophetic Nuggets based on Psalm 125. 

Psalm 125:1-5 (AMP) Those who trust in and rely on the Lord [with confident expectation] Are like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved but remains forever. As the mountains surround Jerusalem, So the Lord surrounds His people From this time forth and forever. For the scepter of wickedness shall not rest on the land of the righteous, So that the righteous will not reach out their hands to do wrong. Do good, O Lord, to those who are good And to those who are upright in their hearts. But as for those who turn aside to their crooked ways [in unresponsiveness to God], The Lord will lead them away with those who do evil. Peace be upon Israel.

The first Prophetic Nugget is called “Firmly Grounded and Secure.”

Psalm 125:1 (AMP) Those who trust in and rely on the Lord [with confident expectation] Are like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved but remains forever.

Beloved, may your footing be sure and steadfast as you put your hope in Me, for I AM as secure as bedrock and more reliable than the North Star. So when you flow in faith with confident expectation, you find yourself firmly grounded and secure. 

Many choose to put their faith in men or rely upon themselves, but to do so is the same as building on shifting sands. Only I AM unchanging, and only I AM fully true. So trust then in My goodness. For if you rest yourself in Me, you’re safely held. 

The second Prophetic Nugget is called “Your Heart is Safe with Me {Moments with God}.”

Psalm 125:2 (AMP) As the mountains surround Jerusalem, So the Lord surrounds His people From this time forth and forever.

{Speaking to God} You are my shield, so I rest safely in Your presence. For I know that You are steadfast, so I know I can be fully at ease and rest in You. You remain the same – yesterday, today, and forever. You are my rock. You are perfect. You are true. 

{He whispers back} You’re worth protecting. You are precious to Me. My eye is ever on you – not one thing goes unseen. Whenever you reach for Me, I’m always by your side. I will ever love you and My love will never die. So rest assured and dwell in peace, for your heart is safe with Me.

The third Prophetic Nugget is called “Wisdom of Truth.”

Psalm 125:3 (AMP) For the scepter of wickedness shall not rest on the land of the righteous, So that the righteous will not reach out their hands to do wrong.

Beloved, resist the urge to cave to unrighteous ways simply because the world has seen fit to normalize them. My Word is a clear standard of measure – not so that you judge others, but so that you might rightly judge your own thoughts and actions. Use its wisdom to choose your path carefully.

My Word is a lamp unto your feet and a light unto your path (Psalm 119:105). Would you choose to stumble in darkness when light is available for you? In the same way, rather than having your behavior mandated by the ever-changing whims of the world, be steadfastly rooted in Me and choose your path based on the wisdom of Truth.

The fourth Prophetic Nugget is called “I AM with You Through It All.”

Psalm 125:4 (AMP) Do good, O Lord, to those who are good And to those who are upright in their hearts..

Beloved, actions have consequences. I would be a poor father if I encouraged disobedience by positively reinforcing it with blessing. However, I’m not one who is cruel or vindictive. So resist the urge to see Me as such when experiencing moments of trial. 

I delight to bless My children, so if you find yourself in the fires of testing, trust that I AM with you even in their midst. Whether the situation is one of your own making or simply an opportunity for growth, your response to the experience determines the fruit that will come forth. 

Even in the most difficult trials, there is blessing to be had. Thus you are to count them all joy (James 1:2), and embrace the opportunities to grow your character when they come knowing you will not be shaken as you rest in Me, for I AM with you through it all.

The fifth Prophetic Nugget is called “Shine Without Hesitation.”

Psalm 125:5 (AMP) But as for those who turn aside to their crooked ways [in unresponsiveness to God], The Lord will lead them away with those who do evil. Peace be upon Israel.

Beloved, you have been set apart. Chosen. Anointed and appointed. Refuse to compromise who you are for the sake of fitting in, or try to lessen or change yourself to make others feel less threatened by the light you reflect. 

Shine without hesitation. Shine without apology. Shine because you are reflecting the light of My countenance and bringing Me glory. May your fruit be sweet – may it be the fruit of My Spirit. Be bold and be beautiful, for that is how I created you to be.
