In the month of February, we believe that inheritances are being restored to those who feel they have lost or were never given earthly inheritances. There is grace right to lay worry and partnerships with fear at the feet of Jesus, choosing instead to take up faith and trust in His promises. Watch for an increase in nighttime dreams this month, for we believe that God is releasing revelation and encounters even to those of you who have not dreamed in a long time. Also watch for unique opportunities to grow in understanding and compassion towards the people God has placed in your life. We believe that humility and vulnerability will strengthen your connections with others as you go low and seek to understand.
YOU ARE MY INHERITANCE
“O Lord, You are the portion of my inheritance and my cup;
You maintain my lot.
The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places;
Yes, I have a good inheritance.”
Psalm 16.5-6 NKJV
There are some people that have wrongly had their inheritance taken from them. A portion of them had it stolen, and for others it was not stewarded well and therefore never reached them. These people feel the injustice hanging over them, and they’ve been waiting for God to vindicate this violation. If this is you, God wants you to know that He is your inheritance. Your inheritance is an intentional plan for God to take care of you. On this earth this often involves stewardship, faithfulness, thoughtfulness, and planning on the part of living individuals, with the goal that they would have something to pass on. We believe that right now, God wants to reassure those of you who have lost earthly inheritances to swindling, misallocation, and outright deceit that you do not have to go without.
If you have had an inheritance wrongly taken from you, He is stepping in and He’s filling in that gap. Although our earthly ideas of receiving an inheritance often involve receiving a lump sum of money or earthly possessions, what an inheritance really means is that we’re taken care of by our family. It might not look like you get a huge lump sum of money (although it could), but perhaps you will find instead that He provides for you in ways that only He could. Some will experience Him lining up portions of their destinies that will bring income they never could have imagined. Some will supernaturally have their needs met; they may find a deep desire of their hearts that they’ve only shared with their Heavenly Father is met by a stranger or a friend. Some will have gifts given to them they never imagined receiving, like cars, houses, and land. Some will find obscure, unknown relatives did leave them an inheritance because they’re the most direct descendant. Others will receive a check in the mail, learning that they are entitled to the mineral rights on some land and there are untapped resources there.
This month watch for miracles, signs, and surprises that prove that God is your inheritance. Even if you don’t feel cared for by your family, God wants you to know that He is stepping in and caring for you, and that He’s given careful thought and consideration to your future, because you are His beloved child.
FEAR VS FAITH
“Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?”
Matthew 6.25 NKJV
Every day we are given a choice to partner with who God has told us He is and the promises He makes to us throughout Scripture, OR we choose to worry. The Bible tells us not to worry a number of times, and we learn from Scripture that worry is actually worship of or partnering with the wrong kingdom. Bill Johnson says that “fear is misplaced worship.” Worry brings about bad fruit; it becomes the thief of our joy, time, peace, sleep, and health. If we believe God’s promises and His Word, which says that He will care for us, then we have no right to partner with worry or fear. It is a choice to stand in faith and believe God, and the fruit of that choice is good.
There is a sweet invitation right now, drawing us back to the truth of what God has said to us about our situation and also what His Word promises to us. We are able to plainly see the fruit of worry and fear and we get to choose to stand in faith instead, reaping the benefits of faith. There is grace for us to see the worry that we’ve been partnering with, and there is grace to lay worry at His feet. He’s standing, ready to pick up our burdens, ever-faithful to fulfill His word to us. Trust His promises to you, standing in faith this month. All of His promises to you are yes and amen (1 Corinthians 1.20).
TO DREAM AGAIN
“I will praise the Lord, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me.”
This month, watch for an increase in nighttime dreams. If you are someone who has dreamt in the past, but hasn’t for some time, prepare your mind and body to start dreaming again! Some people have been in a kind of dormant season, and their dream-life is being energized again. It’s time for God to wake some of these dreamers back up. The dreams that God is releasing are powerful, significant, and deeply meaningful. It is a season in which God is speaking to those with their eyes and ears open. If you are a dreamer, we believe that you can impart that gift easily and swiftly to those who want to receive it. Be intentional about praying for those you know who are not dreamers but would like to be. Watch as this creates a powerful domino effect and increases the dreams of many around you!
In February, expect God to speak through dreams again and release heavenly dreams to people that have had negative dreams in the past. It is a time of redemption for past seasons of nightmares or demonic visitations. Those of you who desire to dream, but haven’t (or can’t remember your dreams) have faith for God to meet you in the night season. God loves to speak through dreams to His children!
UNDERSTANDING LEADS TO COMPASSION
“Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.”
Ephesians 4:32 NIV
Recently I was reading a book about World War 2 and children who grew up during the war. For the first time, I realized that my dad (now in heaven) was the same age as the kids I was reading about in the book. He was six years old when the war started and it ended when he was twelve. On top of that, he lost his dad during that time, as well, in a tragic accident. Putting all this in perspective in the context of the war, and reading about how little boys handled life during the midst of a war, filled me with such understanding and compassion for my dad and his childhood. This is not something I ever remember him talking to me about while he was alive. Once I had this perspective, I could understand more of why he did certain things and thought in certain ways.
God is releasing opportunities for us to learn about those we love, in order to bring understanding, and ultimately, compassion. We must humble ourselves, tapping into our own vulnerability, in order to appreciate what others have been through. When we go low, God will allow us to see and understand more. Taking this step towards another person will strengthen our relationship and our connection. In addition to understanding those that are alive with us, God is also granting understanding for those in our lives that have already passed away.
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 allwords 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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
