Hey beloveds, I wanted to share a few things with you today that the Lord is telling me right now. These aren't necessarily “prophetic words” in the normal sense, but I do believe they are rather urgent–and we know that, what the Lord does with one person, He does across His whole Body.
That being said, here are 3 really practical (and, I feel, rather urgent) WISDOM KEYS the Lord is speaking to me about right now:
1. The Lord is really speaking to me about nutrition. Specifically:
A) He is helping me learn about inflammatory foods and get them out of my diet.
I've been reading books by Dr. Don Colbert, whom I learned about years ago from Joyce Meyer. I've also been reading online materials from a number of other people.
The information I am learning is information I wish I had learned 30 years ago. It's information that nobody in the mainstream talks about. But I am making major nutritional changes as a result of what I am learning, and I feel SO much better. (I could actually tell a difference after the first non-inflammatory meal I ate.)
B) He is teaching me to associate sickness, bodily pain, setbacks, and discouragement with things that are bad for me–because these are the end results of things that are bad for me.
This goes against the lust of the flesh, for the lust of the flesh wants to concentrate on the momentary thrill you get when you taste (for example) a piece of pie, and all the sugar that comes with it.
Nevertheless, the end result of things that are bad for me is BAD.
These things result in sickness, disease, an inability to function, and so much more. This is the TRUTH, and Jesus always wants us to focus on the truth, which sets us free.
C) He has asked me to learn about functional medicine.
None of the physicians I have seen before in my life are into functional medicine, but I am learning that (at least I believe) finding a functional medicine doctor is actually more apropos for what I personally need than even my PCP is. Learning about cortisol levels, hormone optimization, nutritional needs and food sensitivities is a BIG deal. You might want to read up on it if something sparks in your curiosity about this.
2. He told me to establish routines in the morning and evening for my family and myself.
To establish the routine, He showed me to begin at the time the routine ends–e.g. the time I need to leave my home and drive to work. Then, He told me to work backwards from there, and to set a schedule for the other things I need to do in the morning, with beginning and ending times for each.
I've been using the new schedule for a few weeks, and it has already made a HUGE difference to both my mindset, my health, and my productivity. I feel more tuned in to the Lord than ever before. Also, I am living more holistically than ever before because of these routines.
What I mean by “holistically” is:
Everything we do should be worship, and everything we do should be done as to the Lord. There should never be a time when we “put our spiritual hat on” or take it off. Everything we do is spiritual, and we should perceive it all as such.
In practical terms, this looks like:
- When I get up in the morning, I get up because I want to please the Lord, and I'm going to meet with Him.
- When my Bible study time is over and it's time to exercise, I get up from my study spot and begin exercising–but still in a spirit of worship. I'm exercising as a way to worship the Lord, because taking care of my body honors the Lord.
- When I'm done exercising and it's time to prepare for the day, I cook healthy meals for myself, my son, and my husband before they even get up–because Proverbs 31 says I should, and I want to obey the Lord.
- When I'm done with that and it's time to get my son up and ready for school, I do that as unto the Lord.
This is what I mean when I talk about “living holistically.”
Everything we do should be done to the Lord, and should involve our whole person pointing in worship to Him. Establishing routines (with His help) has helped me do that better than ever before.
3. He has told me to declutter because I'm going to need to be mobile.
I feel strongly by the Spirit of God–and I have heard Him telling me this for most of this year–that tremendous opportunities will open up in 2021. He told me that my family and I will need to be mobile, agile, prepared to act, and NOT held down by clutter and chaos if we are going to be able to take advantage of these opportunities.
Therefore, I am ruthlessly decluttering, purging things I once held dear (mementos, knick-knacks, clothes, etc), and cleaning. I want to be able to move with the Lord, and 2021 is getting closer.
I don't know if any of these things resonate with you or not. However, I feel in the Spirit that they are quite urgent.
If the Lord is already speaking to you about any of these things, then I pray this blog post will serve as confirmation, and will inspire you to press on.
If the Lord has not yet spoken to you about any of these things, please ask Him today if you need to be aware of any of these items–and then begin to research and pray, however He leads you.
Love in Jesus,
