Summary

In the month of November, God is making a way where there seems to be no way. He is releasing supernatural faith for impossible situations and divine turnarounds. He is empowering us to take back what the enemy has stolen from us. As we renew our minds on His Word, God is giving us joy for the journey and patience for the process. Our trials shall become our testimony--the testimony of His goodness.

He is My Waymaker

“The Lord is my strength and my song, He has become my salvation.”
Psalm 118.14

God is making a way where there seems to be no way. Many people are in impossible situations where there seems to be no solution.  You may be trying to buy a house in a crazy market, facing a dismal diagnosis, losing  your job or business, struggling with infertility, or scrambling to make ends meet.  God  knows the end from the beginning, and He is not surprised by your current situation.  Do you believe God has a solution for your specific situation?  Where are you placing your faith?  In the impossibility of your struggle or with God’s ability to overcome?  Whatever we focus on grows: the seemingly impossible nature of your situation or God’s supernatural ability.  When you focus on God’s supernatural abilities to work in your situation, your faith attracts divine solutions and miracles.  Your trial will become your testimony. 

Watch as what the enemy tried to use to derail you is turned around and used for your good.  The tables are turning in your favor!  The enemy has overplayed his hand and he’s backed into a corner.  This word is for anyone who is facing a big battle and needs supernatural breakthrough.  This is for you if things have consistently felt hard and like you can’t seem to break through.  It is important to renew your mind with truth and align your faith with God’s ability to overcome.  Declare the truth of Scripture over your life.  Ask God to highlight the truth in His word-even if it doesn’t yet feel like the truth.  

Joy for the Journey

“The joy of the Lord is my strength.”
Nehemiah 8.10

So often we can have big dreams and goals that become all consuming.  But when we become only destination focused, we can actually lose sight of the journey we’re on.  Our focus on the end goal can derail us and cause us to miss out on the enjoyment of today.  We must be intentional about embracing the process.  So many people want to jump ahead to the end result, losing sight of the growth that happens on the way to the destination.  If we only focus solely on the end result, we may get discouraged.  Choose to focus on small victories and progress, not perfection.  

God is reminding us to partner with Him along the journey.  The joy of the Lord is a fruit of the spirit and flows out of us when we host the Holy Spirit.  Remember that He is with you and wants to be included in our process.  This word is for people who are super focused on their goals.  If this is you, you may have even felt disappointed lately that your goals were not progressing as you’d hoped.  You wouldn’t characterize yourself as joyful right now and are not really sure when or how that happened.  If this is you, invite God into the places you lost your joy.  Spend time in His presence just being with Him, even when it seems like you don’t have time--especially then!  Slow down and look around.  Ask God to show you where you lost your joy and how to find it again.  As you partner with Him, you’ll regain clarity and joy.  And who knows?  You may even find that those all consuming goals change and shift in His Presence to become something entirely different and even more beautiful.

Recompense is Coming!

“Pursue them,” he answered. “You will certainly overtake them and succeed in the rescue.”
1 Samuel 30.8

There's a story in the Bible of David and his mighty men at Ziklag (1 Samuel 30).  In this story, they returned home to discover that the Amalekites had raided and plundered their town, burned it, and taken captive the women, children and animals.  David went before the Lord in distress and asked if he was to go after what was stolen.  The Lord said YES!  So, he and his mighty men pursued the Amalekites, overtook them, and retrieved everything that was stolen!  

We know that the enemy is the prince of the power of the air and that he has come to steal, kill and destroy (John 10.10).  He can only take the power that we give to him.  When we have something stolen from us (dream, relationship, money, child, marriage), it can be easy to just accept that it has to be that way.  But what if God is inviting us to pursue what we lost just like He did with David?  What if He is calling us to stand in faith for what He has promised or what was rightfully ours?  We are in a battle for the planet-a spiritual war that is happening before our very eyes.  There is an invitation right now for us to ask the same question of the Lord that David did.  Shall we go after what was lost?  God has assured us in 1 John 5.14-15 that if we ask anything according to His will we shall have it!  This is a time to partner with God to reclaim what was lost.  Recompense is coming! 

God is inviting you to not just accept your losses, but to stand up, be bold, and fight for what is rightfully yours.  This word is for people that have lost something in the last twenty months. If during the time of the pandemic, you lost anything (relationships, job, home, business, profits from business, etc.), now is the time to get it back. First, ask God if you are to pursue what the enemy took from you. If He says “yes”, ask Him how to go about it. Your victory is in the hands of the God of Justice.  

Absolute Truth

“You shall know the truth and the truth will set you free.”
John 8.32

God’s word is absolute truth and  Jesus came to the earth, embodying that Truth. (John 14.6).  Relativism has infiltrated our world and even the church.  Rather than believing what the Bible says, we have created doctrines and ways of thinking that change based on our experience. For example, let’s take supernatural healing.  If we haven’t experienced God healing, then we might deduce that He doesn’t heal anymore, and might even decide that the gifts of the spirit have ceased to function.  However, just because we haven’t personally experienced something, doesn’t mean that it isn’t true.  The word of God tells us we need to renew our minds with truth (Romans 12.2).   This verse is an indication that we might face disparities between God’s word and our experience.  This simply means we need to lean into the truth so our experiences will eventually catch up to the truth of God’s Word.  Rather than changing our beliefs to match what we see, let’s be intentional about renewing our mind with the word of God, which is truth.  

He is calling us as believers to be set apart from the world.  He is challenging us to take Him at His word and to use His word as a weapon.  There is an invitation right now to go even deeper in the Word, as God releases understanding.   This is for you if you have been hungry to see God move supernaturally in your  life .  If you are ready for an upgrade in your beliefs, stand firm and refuse  to change your doctrine to match your current experience.  Ask God to open your  eyes and heart to the deeper truths in the Bible and ask to see these truths manifest in your life. And partner with Him in faith and hold onto His truth even before you see it..

At The Crowning Jewels, it's our desire and our mission to bring encouragement, to build others up, and to bring comfort to people’s lives (1 Corinthians 14.3). Each month our founder, Anne, asks the Lord what He’s doing in the coming month and for any words of encouragement He might have for His people. We believe that prophetic words need to be encouraging and edifying. Moreover, with a corporate prophetic word, not all words are applicable to all people. If our words bless you, please take hold of them and apply them in your own life. If it’s not specific to you, please pass it on to someone else who might be blessed.

As always, the prophetic is a free gift from heaven and will always be something we freely share. As a prophetic business, it’s our mission to bring encouragement and edification to people through the free gift of prophecy, with our product being jewelry.

DECLARATIONS

We at The Crowning Jewels believe in the absolute, transformational power of declarations. We know that truth comes by hearing (Romans 10.17), and speaking truth is an active way for us to renew our minds (Romans 12.2). We invite you to partner with what God is doing and say these declarations for the remainder of the month. We would love to hear what God does! Please email us your testimony at tellyourstory@thecrowningjewels.com.

November Declarations:

  1. God’s ability to overcome is greater than my struggle.
  2. I celebrate progress, not perfection.
  3. God is repaying me for what I have lost.
  4. The truth will set me free. 
  5.  My trials will become my testimony. 

Each month we design two limited edition pieces of jewelry, only available for that month, handmade with words and charms that reflect the monthly prophetic word. If this word resonates with you and you'd like to wear a reminder of its truths, click the pieces below to shop!
