In the month of March, we believe that God wants to remind you of the promises He’s made to you, showing you how you can partner with Him to see them come to pass. We believe that He is also healing the hearts of those who have longed for fruitful relationships but experienced pain instead. Watch for Him to bring breakthrough as you lay down your agenda of how these relationships should look. Also watch for truth to be revealed in the media, and ask God to show you His answers as you embrace humility. In the month of March, many are facing situations that feel impossible, and you may feel powerless to change them. But be encouraged - God is bringing solutions to things that have felt impossibly big and insurmountable.  

Land of Milk and Honey

You shall write on them all the words of this law, when you cross over to enter the land that the Lord your God is giving you, a land flowing with milk and honey, as the Lord, the God of your fathers, has promised you.” 

Deuteronomy 27.3

This month, just as God made a promise to the Israelites that He would lead them into a land flowing with milk and honey, God wants to remind you of the promises He has made to you.  He is faithful to fulfill what He has promised you.  The land of milk and honey was Israel’s inheritance, but at the same time there was effort required by the Israelites to steward that promise well. In order to have milk, cows must be tended. In order to have honey, bees must be kept and the honey extracted. God delights in our partnership - co-labor with Heaven to walk into our promises.  Before Israel inhabited their Promised Land of Canaan, they became angry with God in the waiting. In order for them to receive their promise , they had to believe Him and take Him at His word.  Instead, they lacked belief in His capability, faithfulness, and loving nature. Just like with a people-mover at the airport, you have to take the initial step and then the momentum of the device carries you forward. When it comes to God’s promises, we often play a vital role in seeing them come to fruition. 

 

In March, God is reminding us of His promises to us. We are privileged to partner with God and co-labor with Him to obtain our promise.  “Now, faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.” (Hebrews 11.1)  The tension of standing in faith is that we are choosing to believe in God for what we do not see, while we wait for it to come to pass.  We don’t stand in faith when we see it, but before we see it.  This month, ask God to show you how you can intentionally take a step towards your Promised Land.  Be reminded that those who are not full of faith will not understand. Surround yourself with people of like-minded, bold, and courageous faith.  Your single step, made in faith, is bringing you that much closer to your breakthrough. Take a step today and partner with what God is doing in your life!

 

Healing Hearts

"And he will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers."

Malachi 4:6


Most of us have at some point in our lives longed for a relationship that felt elusive and just out of reach.  For some, it’s been upsetting for a moment, and for others it has led to years of heartbreak and confusion. In many instances this relationship has been a part of  your family, and for others it was a friendship or a romantic relationship. We believe that God is bringing healing this month to people who have histories of painful relationships. Some of these relationships will be supernaturally restored overnight, and for others, God will bring healing to your heart apart from that relationship being realized.  The key for this breakthrough to be manifested is for you to surrender your ideas of how things should look. As you pray, lay down your own agenda for the relationship and ask God to show you what He has in mind.

 This month, watch as God opens the door of breakthrough when we take steps towards the desires of our hearts. He’s bringing healing to painful places that only He can. God values connection and the prioritization of family. He wants this restoration to happen even more than you do.  Consider this month that God may be inviting you to surrender your agenda for these painful relationships as you trust Him to bring healing and restoration.  

 

Truth in Media

And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

John 8.3

Not everything we hear in the news is true.  It is becoming increasingly important to learn the right questions to ask in order to get to the truth, because everyone has their own angle on the “story.” Discernment and wisdom are needed now more than ever in determining what is really going on in the world around us.  

 

Last year in Dallas, TX, the story of Amber Guyger made headlines when she, an off-duty cop, opened fire on a black man sitting in his own apartment because she mistook his apartment for hers.  The story was filled with emotion and hot-buttons for many, and it quickly turned into either a gun issue or a race issue. The end of the story held redemption when the victim’s brother, Brandt Jean, said that his brother, the late Botham Jean, would’ve wanted her to accept Christ as her Lord and Savior.  He told her that if she asked for forgiveness she would receive it, and even said to her from the witness stand, “I love you as a person. I don’t wish anything bad on you.”. He also said to the judge, “I don’t know if this is possible, but can I give her a hug?” Whereas the enemy would seek to divide and distract, God turned the situation around for good, even amidst this terrible loss.   Just like He promises, He is the God that works all things together for the good of those who love him and who have been called according to his purpose (Romans 8.28).  

 

When we come to conversations with our defenses up, ready to fight, it’s so much harder to find the truth. The key is humility.  Right now, God is showing us the right questions to ask. He’s raising up voices of truth in the media, His very own spokespeople.  They may not be popular, but they will be highlighted and showcased for all to see. God will not be limited by an agenda or a certain stance that a network may have.  He is the Author of truth, and the truth will be known. Watch for new breeds of reporters and news anchors to rise to the top during this time. Ask the Lord to let your spirit resonate with truth when you hear it. As you partner with Him in humility, He promises to lead you into all truth. 

 

Speed and Ease 

"Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly, abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us."

Ephesians 3:20

In the month of March, many are facing situations that feel impossible, and you may feel powerless to change them. But be encouraged - God is bringing solutions to things that have felt impossibly big and insurmountable.  Many of you who are reading this will know this pertains to you if you’ve felt STUCK unless God moved. You’ve asked God for a miracle, because without one you haven’t seen a solution anywhere in sight. This could pertain to important decisions, like relocation, finding the right place to live, renting a house, buying a house, breaking a lease, quitting a job, getting a job, or finding the right person to fill a position or a need. 

 

This month will be a testimony to the fact that God knew about your need before you did, and that He’s gone ahead of you. Before you even knew what to ask, He made a way.  He’s brought just the right people together at just the right time. He’s orchestrating things that you hadn’t thought to ask about. This month will be marked by speed and ease. James 4.2 reminds us, “You do not have because you do not ask God.”  Take some time this month to intentionally talk with God about your needs, and watch as He moves mountains to meet you.

At The Crowning Jewels our desire and our mission is to bring encouragement, to build others up and to bring comfort to people’s lives (1 Corinthians 14.3).   As a team each month we ask the Lord what He’s doing in the coming month and for any words of encouragement he might have for people as a loving God.   We realize that with a corporate prophetic word not all words are applicable to all people.  If it’s prophetic it also needs to be encouraging and edifying.  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. We do not sell prophecies; prophecy is a free gift from heaven.  As a prophetic business, our mission is to bring encouragement and edification to people; our product is simply 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 also believe that in speaking forth these declarations, you will change your life.  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.
