Father of Redemption | July Blog
In the month of July, God is restoring lost things, dreams, and promises to people. He is showcasing His love in little ways, through seemingly insignificant details. He is releasing unexpected upgrades in multiple areas–including areas of authority and influence. And He is redeeming family lines and healing generational trauma. Lean into His Presence and allow His goodness to lead you. Bless His name no matter what you’re facing–trust that He is working everything out for your good.
The Lost Has been Found
“Or suppose a woman has ten silver coins and loses one. Doesn’t she light a lamp, sweep the house and search carefully until she finds it? And when she finds it, she calls her friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost coin.’ In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.”
Recently, I lost my debit card. It was gone for over a week and I couldn’t find it anywhere. I searched high and low for it, but it still didn’t show up. Finally, I paused and asked God where it might be. I remembered that I had eaten at a specific restaurant recently and wondered if it might be there. I called. The lady told me that they shred credit cards that have been left for more than two days (it had been over a week at this point). She looked and sure enough, they had my card!
In the process of searching, I had a ton of peace. Although this was my primary card, I didn’t feel any anxiety about having misplaced it. When the card was returned to me, I was struck at the goodness of God who covers our mistakes and shows up on our behalf and I thanked him for his kindness in showing me where the lost card was.
Likewise, this month is a month of lost items being found. Whether it’s dreams, physical items, or broken relationships–God is restoring that which has been lost, abandoned, or even stolen. Inheritances that were stolen are being restored. Family relationships that have been severed or broken will experience healing. God doesn’t hold our mistakes against us, rather, He covers us. This month, ask God practically how to pray and find that which has been lost or stolen and pray for the restoration of broken relationships. If you’ve lost hope over a promise, a dream or something physical you’ve lost, ask God to return it to you! Watch as hope floods your whole being and He does the miraculous on your behalf! And if something comes to your mind to do, do it! He’s leading you back to that which is yours.
He’s In The Details
Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.
A friend recently shared a story that she was in a wedding, and didn’t like her bridesmaid dress. She let it go, because the day wasn’t about her. But she still didn’t really want to wear her dress on the wedding day. Another bridesmaid also didn’t like her dress. They tried each other’s dresses on and each liked those dresses way better! Although they would have been fine wearing their original dresses, the fact that the swap meant they were both happier was a fun surprise. And they both were amazed that God cared about the details—even something like a bridesmaid dress.
You may think that if something is small that it doesn’t matter to God. Small details or preferences may not seem important. It can be easy to believe that something is only important if it is really significant. However, if something matters to you, then, it also matters to God. God is a good father, and he doesn’t just care about the ““ important stuff. He cares about the details. This month, he wants to show up to you in the details—in the things that don’t seem like they’re a big deal, but still matter to you. God is showing up as the God of intentionality, as the God of joy, and as the God, who cares about the little things. In addition, God is releasing fun and easy solutions for problems or frustrations that are in front of you. God is showing his tenderness and kindness and caring about the details that matter to you.
You may have given up on hoping or wanting certain things. But know this: God cares. You may have had to make sacrifices that “weren’t that big of a deal” and you let it go. Or perhaps, you have made big sacrifices and assumed you just had to live with the sacrifice. But God wants you to know that He cares about what you care about. Allow God to meet you in the desires of your heart. Be bold in speaking up and asking for what you need even when something seems insignificant. If it matters to you, it matters to God.
“Oh how abundant is your goodness
which you have stored up for those who fear you
and worked for those who take refuge in you.”
In the last month, many people have experienced unexpected transitions. Moves. Job changes. Relational shifts. These moves have been stressful and a lot has happened quickly. But in the process, there are “better than you expected” upgrades. God is intentionally releasing upgrades in every area of your life. Yes, change can be stressful and challenging, but God’s in it. And He’s working out details that you never would have anticipated.
These upgrades might equal big shifts (e.g. a housing move or move across the country), but they include massive upgrades. Better homes, stronger communities, more income, and a stabler sense of home. Know this: transition is temporary, but the upgrades will be long lasting. There is grace for the shift and grace for the upgrades.
You may not be looking for upgrades, but God is ready to upgrade you. God is upgrading people who aren’t even looking for upgrades. Look for evidence of upgrades in little things and big things: upgraded flights, hotel rooms, or cell phone plans. Circumstances unexpectedly working out in your favor. In some of these upgrades, there will be stressors, but some will come so easily! Many of these upgrades also include an increase in authority in the spirit. If God is upgrading you in the natural, chances are He’s also upgrading you in the spirit. Ask Him what spiritual upgrades you are receiving and how to steward the increase. Sometimes upgrades come with increased responsibility. If He’s giving these to you, trust Him! He’s doing this on purpose and for your good! His goodness will meet you in the upgrade!
“And the Lord restored the fortunes of Job…and the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before... And the Lord blessed the latter days of Job more than his beginning.”
Many of you have experienced extreme heartache and loss over the past few years. You are waiting on promises to come to pass, and it seems like they’ll never show up. Or something you believed was good and a gift from God was stolen. These losses have devastated you and you have been feeling the effects of a broken heart. In addition, you may be feeling the pain of a dysfunctional family or of generational struggles. Whether that generational struggle is addiction, poverty, or broken marriages, know this: this is not the end of the story. In fact, it is only the middle. And the best is yet to come.
God is redeeming brokenness, generational trauma, and loss. For some of you, the pain that you have been feeling is even more connected to generational trauma than any one situation in your life. Generational trauma is where painful events or beliefs are passed down through generations. These are habits, mindsets, beliefs, illnesses, or even fears.
God is specifically and intentionally healing generational trauma right now, and he is exposing areas where there have been agreements, bondage, or sin in your family line and he is setting you free! This ends with you. The heartache, the pain, and the brokenness ends with you. You may have felt shame over some of your struggles, but God wants you to know that these are not your fault. Many things you have faced did not start with you. But they do get to end with you.
This word isn’t for everyone, but if this resonates with you, lean into the presence of God, and ask him what the keys are for you and your family. He is releasing specific keys for healing and breakthroughs of generational trauma. He may ask you to repent on behalf of those who have come before you. He may ask you to partner with a new belief over who you are and who your family is. He may ask you to forgive people you’ve never even met, as an act of intercession. Trust Him! You have access to a brand new spiritual inheritance in Christ Jesus that will affect you and those who come after you and will even manifest in your physical life. He is redeeming your story and He is redeeming your family story. Stay connected to his presence and continue to bless him no matter what comes up or goes on in your life.
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
