Silk: Be Strong and Flourish

Be Strong and Flourish The name of your silk is Be Strong and Flourish. The colors in it are:

  • Fuchsia representing passion
  • Wisteria representing intimacy
  • Peacock blue representing fullness of His word
  • Plum representing prosperity
  • Seafoam representing mercy
  • Baby blue representing heaven
  • Gold shimmer representing divine light 

The scripture that goes with this silk is from Deuteronomy 28, which is a conditional promise from the Lord; He tells us what we need to do to receive His blessing (i.e. prosper), and what we will bring on ourselves if we don’t follow His instructions (which brings curses).

“If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully keep all his commands that I am giving you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the world. You will experience all these blessings if you obey the Lord your God…” Deuteronomy 28:1-2

The blessings from Deuteronomy 28 get prayed so often, but people forget these beautiful promises are a result of our actions. Here are a few of the blessings we can walk in:

  • blessings shall come upon you and overtake you (v2)
  • Blessed shall be the fruit of your womb (v4)
  • Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out (v6)
  • your enemies who rise against you to be defeated before you (v7)
  • They shall come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways (v7)
  • blessing on you …in all that you undertake (v8)
  • the Lord will make you abound in prosperity (v11)
  • bless all the work of your hands (v12)
  • you shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow (v12)
  • the Lord will make you the head and not the tail (v13)
  • you shall only go up and not down (v13)

These are powerful promises!  But the key point is: they are conditional. What that means is we don’t simply GET these, we get these when we fulfill the conditions of this promise, which He makes clear.

  1. IF you faithfully obey the voice of the Lord your God, being careful to do all his commandments that I command you today (v1)
  2. IF you keep the commandments of the Lord your God and walk in his ways. (v9)
  3. IF you obey the commandments of the Lord your God (v13) and IF you do not turn aside from any of the words that I command you today, to the right hand or to the left, to go after other gods to serve them. (v14)

It is clear Father holds His commandments in high regard, and He has given us beautiful, powerful promises IF we choose to obey them. He so strongly desires to prosper His children! This word that accompanies this silk is both a reminder and a promise. He’s reminding you of the conditions of these promises because He wants to remind you that it is worth it. Sometimes living set apart can feel so difficult because it is counter to our culture. He uses the foolish things to confound the wise (1 Corinthians 1:27), so often the choices He would have us make don’t make sense to others, which can leave us feeling ridiculed or ostracized, rejected and alone. But we are not. So He is encouraging you to stay strong. Whether it feels like you are swimming upstream or whether you simply feel a tad crazy, continue to obey Him, His word, His whispers.

A portion of a “whisper” called “The highway of praise” from the Passion Translation team’s “I Hear His Whisper” is connected to this silk.

Dearest one… You have kept My word and walked deeper in My ways, even when the light was dim and uncertainty surrounded you. I see that you long to be a doer of My Word and not just a hearer, and that you have become faithful even in that which is little as you do your tasks for Me.

Walk with Me on the highway of praise, and I will remove your unbelief. You have asked Me for greater faith. I will grant it to you, but it requires that you walk in the spirit of gratitude for all things. Faith and complaining cannot live together, My beloved. You will either have great faith and gratitude, or you will have great doubts and complaining. Choose the higher way of praise and watch as your faith increases.

The ways of My kingdom are always growing. It is a beauty that grows, a faith that grows, and a holy gratitude that grows deep within you. As you lay hold of eternal life, it will manifest with an undiminished hope. Go forward. Step closer to the eternal flame. Learn the lesson of My servants Paul and Silas, who found even in a prison cell a sanctuary of praise. Lift up your voice with no thought of the past and set your heart on the joy that is before you. Walk with Me on the highway of praise, and your prison doors will fling wide open.

A word called “I Will Build You” from June Reinke of Prophetic Light is also connected to this silk.

I will build you and make you and cause you to succeed in proportion to your pursuit of Me, says the LORD. For as you press into My presence and pursue My higher thoughts and ways, you will have an increase of wisdom and understanding. You will have clarity in the steps that I order for you. You will receive revelation that will be useful to you as your mind will become aware of new things that will benefit you. As you search for Me and the deeper things of MY Spirit, I will give you the things that you ask for, the things that you didn’t ask for and bring an increase of those things that you didn’t even think possible. For when you find Me, you find My wisdom. You find My knowledge. You find wonderful counsel. You receive My power. I will empower you and give you success as you make Me your priority and give Me the honor and glory and follow My higher ways and think on My thoughts that I give you. They will be as seeds that grow in a fertile field and the waters of My Spirit will make them grow and prosper, says the LORD.

Seek me early. Seek Me with all your heart. Make me your ardent desire, says the LORD. All else will come into place as you find the secret place and press into My presence and glory, where I will press into you the things you need and be more than enough for you. Time is everything, and your times are in MY hands that created you, and I want you to walk by faith in Me and trust in Me at all times for EVERYTHING! For I Am your everything and ALL, and I who created the earth, I who created you, I who created every person, place and thing, I who created the silver and gold own what I have formed for My purposes and glory and I will not forget you as you make Me The LORD of all your life at all times. For what I OWN, I work with and through. Give ME EVERYTHING and let Me put My name on it and My seal upon it and let Me make it and form it and use it for My glory and you will see that I AM more than enough for you, says the LORD.

It has been prayed over and anointed with the Scent of Heaven’s Prosperity (Deut 28) oil, which is used as a commitment to obey God and wait ready to receive all His promised blessings. The scripture that goes with this oil shares this conditional promise: that IF we obey His commandments, THEN He will bless us. Deuteronomy 28:1-2, “If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully keep all his commands that I am giving you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the world. You will experience all these blessings if you obey the Lord your God…” The deeper meaning of this oil reminds us: When we obey God, He will bless us. Merriam-Webster Unabridged’s defines prosper as “to become strong and flourishing : THRIVE”.

We pray it blesses you!
