Trend or Revelation - Lori Frackelton
A few days ago I was in one of those quiet unoccupied moments which seem so rare at times. I clearly heard the Lord ask me to look up the definition of the words ‘trend’ and ‘revelation’. When your spirit is stilled and just enjoying being, the still small voice of promise stirs up an action on your behalf, so I received His push and started looking things up.
a general direction in which something is developing or changing;
a change or development in a general direction.
Now to me, these seem very man centered or established. For example, I’m on the shorter side in stature on the vertical scale and I am not happy about big pants coming back into fashion. Fashion designers are leading this trend. As I began to meditate on the definition, I began to see the creative power that the Lord has entrusted unto us. More on that in a bit…
1. The act of revealing or disclosing; disclosure.
2. something revealed or disclosed, especially a striking
disclosure, as of something not before realized.
Theology: A fact disclosed or revealed
God’s disclosure of His nature and His purpose for mankind especially through the words of human intermediaries.
1. God’s disclosure of Himself and His will to His creatures.
2. An instance of such communication or disclosure.
3. Something thus communicated or disclosed.
4. Something that contains such disclosure, as the Bible.
Wow! I get it, Lord. Thank You for opening my eyes. You see that a trend is a direction we choose to follow according to its appeal to us. Do we like it, do we enjoy its effects? Does it work for us?
While we may learn new tools in healing, as frontline warriors in a healing ministry, our hearts must be poised to hear instruction from the Creator of the person before us. While ways people were healed or gained victory are helpful tools, it must be the Holy Spirit of God who is guiding us on what to use and how.
Please understand, dearest frontline warriors, a great reset is occurring in ALL creation and its systems. Please allow Holy Spirit to be the One who stirs up a prayer, scripture or word of knowledge within you. We see many new tools that can easily become ministry trends if not applied under the guidance from whom all good things flow and who knows ALL things. Allow the Revelation of our Father, King and Redeemer to guide you with each and every lamb He has placed before you.
God’s disclosure of the root, need or word that heals and sets captives free is enough. His nature and purpose are to see His children whole, restored and free. Allow His Holy Spirit to reveal the words to speak to bring the wholeness and freedom that was purchased for them at Calvary.
