"This Is the Season of You Flourishing with Me"
By Melissa Pearce
Over the last couple of weeks, I kept hearing the Lord say, "It is time to flourish!" I believe this word is specifically for
those who've watched God move in the lives of others, but have not yet seen the awaited blessing of His hand in their own lives. Due to the delay of God's timing, the enemy has tried to infiltrate your minds with doubt. You have battled questions such as,
"God, will You do it for me? God, am I not qualified? God, am I missing something?" or "God, did I hear You correctly?"
Questions like these often indicate that there is something amiss with our ideology
concerning God and who we are in Him. Because of our skewed interpretation of God's willingness to perform in our lives, we lose sight of His true nature towards us. The enemy wants you to displace your focus. God is good, and He desires to bless you. He knows
you; He knows your needs and your desires. He will always act as the loving, nurturing Father that He is towards you.
The spotlight is on you! Will you waiver in your true identity in Him?
Your interpretation of the unanswered questions has caused your heart to falter and to become unsettled. In a place of unrest, there is no flourishing. "Unrest questions," as they relate to the true nature of God,
His intentions for you, and who you are in Him, can leave you depleted and withered.
No matter your season, God's intent is for you to flourish.
comes with the realization that God sees the best in you. He has your interests at heart, and His plans of hope for your life.
"And he shall be like a tree firmly planted [and tended] by the streams of
water, ready to bring forth its fruit in its season; its leaf also shall not fade or wither; and everything he does shall prosper [and come to maturity]." (Psalm 1:3 AMPC)
Below is an encouraging word
that Abba Father spoke into my spirit. As you read the following word, my prayer is that your hearts and minds will become repositioned, thus becoming the breakthrough you need to advance in the Kingdom of God.
Word from Your Abba Father: This Is the Season of You Flourishing in Me!
"My child, it has been a long time since your heart was at rest in Me. I am washing over you. You thought I would not visit you
to engage with you in this capacity, but I yearn to engage – to fellowship with you.
"I never stopped delighting in you. Contrary to what you believe, I do delight in you, for you are pleasurable
to Me. You are significant to Me. Do you hear Me? You are significant to Me. It's not what you do for Me, My love, but it is who you are to Me. You are My beloved child.
"I never want to see you hurting
– in pain, in turmoil – because I know it is not what I have destined for you. My freedom is where I long for you to abide, to reside, and to inhabit.
"My child, don't you see? I have always
been for you, but you believe it is so for others but not yourself. My love, take your inheritance and operate in what I am giving you. Don't be bashful, but fully receive; fully accept My offering. It is My gift to you.
"You want greatness. You want to achieve greatness, but define greatness. Do you define it as what you achieve, or do you define it as living in the place of possibility with Me? You see, My love, one places emphasis on what you do, who acknowledges
you, the accolades, the rewards, the acknowledgments of man. The other rests in who I've called you to be – in the place of great intimacy – the place of great possibilities that relinquish when we are abiding together.
"The lies that the enemy has planted within you – that you would not be significant, that you would not amount to anyone – have been the beast you have been fighting all your life. Even when interacting with others, you question your
abilities. You question, 'Do I measure up?'
"The answer to those questions is YES! You are significant because I have placed My value in you. You are significant because I have deemed it so. You are My
child, My love, My Bride, My partner, My friend, My heart. Do you not see? You are significant because your worth to Me is greater than anything – more than you can conceive or achieve. My love, see yourself as significant. 'Significant' means you are
relevant. Significant means you are important. Significant means you are valuable. Significant means you carry My heart.
"My child, allow the Word to wash over you in this season. Embrace My love from
a fresh perspective. Let it be inviting and invigorating. Allow My love to consume you, to demolish fears, to conquer your doubts and insecurities. My child, this is the season of you FLOURISHING IN ME.
means that the weeds (those inconsistent messages) are removed, and you remain true to the core knowledge of who I am, who I am for you, and who I created you to be. Flourish means no longer beating yourself up over what you are not, but resting in who you
are, right now, with Me. Different areas within you are budding while other areas are taking a greater root within Me.
"You display My beauty well. You display My beauty well...I needed to repeat
Myself, for at that moment, you doubt your beauty. I see no ashes; I see beauty. I see no disqualifications; I see qualification. I see no restrictions; I see freedom. I see beauty discovering her true calling, stepping into what I have ordained, and releasing
her voice with Mine to bring My Kingdom to Earth.
"My love, let's go on a journey to discover beauty within you, so that you will recognize Beauty for who He is and who He is creating you to be. No more
lashing yourself...no more judgments, no more criticism, no more calculations, no more scales, no more validating yourself through numbers...just walking in beauty; My beauty that I have lavished upon you.
love, the undo pressure you have placed upon yourself is not of Me...still, you are operating in that capacity because you are trying to achieve significance, instead of realizing you are significant.
heart seeks for My rest. Your heart seeks My approval. Your heart seeks My joy and peace. Here is the beauty of what your heart desires; it is already available to you. You need to receive what has been given to you, not allowing the enemy to cause you to
"So My love, rest in True Beauty. Don't get caught in the outward adornments, but get caught up in Me again. Let's begin a new adventure that is filled with all of your heart's desires, and
with My joy, peace and love. Remember, My child, this is the season of you FLOURISHING IN ME."
I pray that you embrace this season of flourishing with God. Don't allow the enemy to infiltrate your thoughts
with doubt of God's love for you, or who He destined you to become.
Blessings of Flourishment,
