Greetings, highly honored ones!
Father chose you, specifically, to co-labor with Him on the highest ROI (return-on-investment) in the cosmos!
Who are these honored ones?
What is this highest ROI co-labor with Father?
The process of loving, raising and training children.
Incredibly harder, but more worthwhile, than expected is parenting. Parents are entrusted by Father with treasures (children’s spirits) in jars of clay (physical body).
The vast majority of parents deeply desire to provide the best for their children. As such, we, parents, can end up carrying loads of hyper-responsibility, guilt, frustration, fear and shame for their well-being and our role in it. With any trouble regarding the circumstances around their conception, these burdens balloon. Loads such as these greatly reduce effective parenting.
Below is a new paradigm from the Father that will release you from these.
Additionally, this new series is presented with the desire and prayer to grant direction and connection for you to partner with your Father and theirs in raising the big-spirited children. Of all the people on earth and in history, your Father chose you to love and raise them.
To build this paradigm, let’s take a closer look at King David.
Famous for defeating giants and establishing Israel’s eternal capital, David also experienced heavenly visitations and prophetic encounters. Not as widely known, David was a prophet, though referred to by Jesus (Luke 20:41-44). His powerful encounters flowed as a result of his heart to honor Father God and through his cultivation of worship. In Psalm 110, David recorded a heavenly preview of the Messiah, Jesus, initiated by Father into a new priesthood—Melchizedek’s.
If you’ve tracked with prophetic ministry over the past 14 years, you’re familiar with the interchangeable terms, “destiny books,” “books of destiny,” or “scrolls of destiny.”
This concept comes from the prophetic vision of David regarding his life, all the way to womb and before (Psalm 139). Recorded in Scripture which Paul instructs us to use for training in righteousness, we gain Father’s wisdom and view on children, and thus adjustment as parents (2 Timothy 3:16).
“My bones were not hidden from You when I was made in secret; when I was woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my embryo; and in Your book all my members were written; the days they were formed, and none was among them.” (Psalm 139:15-16 in A Literal Translation of the Bible by Jay Green, Sr., 1985).
Notice the word “secret” (Strong’s #5643 cether). It is the same word used in Psalm 91:1: “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty” (KJV).
Secret place here is a spiritual place of spiritual meeting. In Hebrew, it means “covering, shelter, hiding place, secrecy, shelter, protection.” The secret place spoken of in Psalm 91 is in the heart of the Father.
Where does love flow from? The heart. Where is the physical genesis of babies? The heart of the parents in the physical act of intimacy. Where is the spiritual genesis of babies? The heart of the Father, Son and Spirit.
The vision David saw revealed development on two different planes. 1. the secret place and 2. the depths of earth.
For a baby’s bones to develop from cell layers through the process of transforming cartilage to soft bones, with the active use of calcium and minerals, it takes almost nine months. Soft bones are made ready for entry to the world in the last month before birth.
Before bones developed in utero, Father developed David (and each baby) in the secret place of His heart. Father’s eyes considered the unformed person (embryo) which He created. He fully and intimately knew every detail of the child’s spirit, soul, body and recorded his/her days in a special book (1 Corinthians 13:4-8; 12-13; Psalm 139:16).
At this point, before placing the baby’s eternal spirit inside his/her temporal body in the womb, Father wrote (Strong’s #3789 kathab) all the days planned for that child before any of them occurred. Write here means “write, record, enroll, inscribe, decree.” And the word book (Strong’s #5612 cepher) means “book or scroll, legal document, record book.”
This is why there can be such accurate prophetic words released when a child is in the womb, or very young, because the Father is speaking to the prophet words from the child’s destiny book.
The Father revealed to David that He was fully engaged in the unfolding of David’s life in Heaven and on earth. He formed him above, planned and prepared for his life in his own personal book or scroll of destiny, and wove him skillfully on earth (DNA spirals look like weaving!).
Nothing random, wrong, or haphazard occurred with the eternal development and the placement of David in his mother’s womb, in that time of history, and in that place of geography. Nor did it occur in our child’s.
The same is true for us, as parents. We were as lovingly prepared and planned for “. . .by the power of God, who has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time, but it has now been revealed through the appearing of our Savior, Christ Jesus. . . (NIV, 2 Timothy 1:8b-10a).
Father is your parent. He is your children’s parent. And He chose you. Specifically, because He trusted you with His masterpiece. His child—and yours.
The burden of guilt, shame, hyper-responsibility, fear and frustration is lifted off your shoulders this day. You are free to partner with your Father and theirs in loving and raising these beloved children. He knows what they, and you, need at each season.
Shift gears from any negative emotions or heavy load of trying to do the best for your children for the Father, and allow Him to lead you on what needs to be done, and when.
You are His child, too. And He’s parenting you both.
(If you aren’t a parent, you are still Father’s child. . .and He would love to connect deeply with you, if you are not already deeply connected. And He may well have physical and/or spiritual children ahead for you to nurture.)
Paradigm shift: You’re not raising your children for God, to be good people, or good Christians. Father designed them and their destiny. Then, He chose you to share them with. Through this process with them, He is re-parenting you. From His loving, tender knowledge, He is giving you wisdom from Heaven on how to parent (nurture, guide and train) them with their spirit needs.
My prayer for you:
Father, thank You Your truth that sets us free! Thank You for lifting these heavy burdens off Your beloved parents. Cause them to feel the release and freedom. Give them grace to connect with You, as Father. Give them grace to receive Your process of parenting in their lives, and in the lives of the children You’ve blessed them with. Align and adjust them now. Give them freedom to synchronize with the flow of Your days of destiny for them and their children in the mighty name of the Lord Jesus Christ, amen.
