Stories of a good God

Calling all creative ones to shine – God is good!

I was with my 9½ year old daughter.  We had just purchased some new ballet shoes and placed an order for her first ½ tutu … her eyes were shining with anticipation as we left the ballet store in search for our Lindt Hot Chocolate treat …

We made or way through the shopping centre and I noticed a new store.  I felt the prompt to pop in and take a look. 

We walked in and I looked at a few items.

 Seeing some gum boots I asked God quickly if I was to buy these … but I felt a “no” and reminded myself that the vision He had given me were of red gumboots … not orange or teal like these were …

As I wandered a young girl serving followed me around the store chatting.  I sensed that I was to pray for her, but I wanted to take a look at the items first … in peace.

I walked around and as I looked she gathered together the rubbish and went to take it out, I thought “ok, now I’ll have to wait” … and feeling a bit frustrated that I may have missed it I continued to wander, knowing I needed to wait for her to return.

As I waited I was served by another assistant who helped me purchase a new little mug with a blue bird on it  … I felt God was highlighting this item for me to buy … a simple item to hold our toothbrushes in but a significant one in my world … yes I believe God cares about the detail in our lives …  As I finished up the purchase M (the young girl) came back into the store.

I turned to M, introduced myself and asked her if I could pray … explaining that I had felt that I was to offer earlier, and that through experience I had learnt to step out and risk looking strange because it had impacted so many people over the years when I did stop and pray for them because “the prayer of a righteous person are powerful and effective!” (James 5:16 emphasis added) …

She agreed to my praying, and I explained that I had no idea why I was to pray, but I asked if she was sick or if anyone she knew was … she wasn’t, and she didn’t … so I went with my first instinct and said “right I think I am just to bless you” …

I took her hands in mine, and blessed her and as I did I got the word “upgrade” and so I prayed “upgrade” … I called forth promotions (quietly, because as it turned out it was her boss across the store that had served me) and I declared her destiny open in the name of Jesus …

I very quietly said I believed that “upgrades” were coming and asked if she was after a promotion …

She motioned to her boss and quietly said yes and that I was freaking her out how did I know? …

We clearly could not talk, but that was fine with me, I didn’t want to take long and I felt I was simply there to move things in the spiritual, to declare God’s will into her world, so her destiny could be extended and outworked in the natural …

I said that the word I clearly felt, “heard” was “upgrade” and so I again agreed with God’s word over her, feeling the Holy Spirit’s Presence swirl as I did. I declared favour and open doors to her destiny in the Name of Jesus …

I turned to go and stopped and looked at her and said “you’re very creative aren’t you?”

She looked and said to me “yes I am … now you are really starting to freak me out … “

I smiled and said to her quietly … “step into it, God made you that way, and it is who you are … He delights in you being you, so don’t stifle it, or you will be stifled …

And I left, with my precious creative little 9½ year old daughter whose dreams I am nurturing and calling into fruition …

God is a creative God ….

We are made in a creative God’s image …

And so I call forth the creative ones and I say:

“Arise, shine for your light has come!” (Isaiah 60:1)

Shine into the darkness creative ones … be all you are called to be … dare to be you …

For I believe that as we walk out our true design and we allow ourselves to shine, the earth will be blessed and God will delight as He gazes upon His children … for I believe that like any loving parent He delights in us being all we are called to be because …

God is Good!
