This morning God showed me a vision of a crown of thorns placed in the middle of this empty white space and surrounding it were many other crowns. They’re were all different shapes and sizes. They had different jewels on them. They were scattered everywhere. I felt God say that we are apart of His kingdom. We are heirs to him. We have royalty running through our veins. All we have to do is pick up our crown and claim the victory. Claim the Power of Jesus. Later on in prayer I began to see that each crown had a different word on it. Such as: joy, hope, peace, comfort, forgiveness. God is saying whatever it is you need pick up your crown and wear it. You have the victory and power.
This following chunk of scripture is under the heading Zayin in the book of Psalms. Our generation is Generation Z. In Hebrew Z means Zayin. Zayin means warrior or mighty weapon. The words in this text describe our generation entirely, those whose hearts are on fire for God and on a mission to advance the kingdom.
“Remember your promise to me; it is my only hope. Your promise revives me; it comforts me in all my troubles. The proud hold me in utter contempt, but I do not turn away from your instructions. I meditate on your age-old regulations; O LORD, they comfort me. I become furious with the wicked, because they reject your instructions. Your decrees have been the theme of my songs wherever I have lived. I reflect at night on who you are, O LORD; therefore, I obey your instructions.This is how I spend my life: obeying your commandments.”
Psalms 119:49-56 NLT
We want so badly for people to feel God and have a connection with him. It drives us crazy! We want everyone to have a taste of what we are feeling. But that can also be our flaw. We must not grow furious with those whose sight is obstructed right now because of the world. It’s our job to keep showing them who God is, through ourselves. Keep pursuing the lost souls. Keep pursing your family and friends. God has already won the victory. “We are not fighting for victory we are fighting from victory.” Do not give up on people. Do not give up on yourself. Do not give on your situation. Generation Zayin is taking back the nation!
“But now, GOD ’s Message, the God who made you in the first place, Jacob, the One who got you started, Israel: “Don’t be afraid, I’ve redeemed you. I’ve called your name. You’re mine. When you’re in over your head, I’ll be there with you. When you’re in rough waters, you will not go down. When you’re between a rock and a hard place, it won’t be a dead end— Because I am GOD, your personal God, The Holy of Israel, your Savior. I paid a huge price for you: all of Egypt, with rich Cush and Seba thrown in! That’s how much you mean to me! That’s how much I love you! I’d sell off the whole world to get you back, trade the creation just for you.” In that last sentence the scripture says “I’d sell off the whole world to get you back, trade the creation just for you.” He’d give up His creation, what He birthed into existence, to have you, to have your soul. How much greater can a love get. We know God’s love, but sometimes we lose perspective of just how great it is. It’s a love that gave it’s life, a love that never fails it always picks you back up and brushes you off, a love that never abandons you, a love that gives thousands of chances, but most of all a love that promises you an eternity. God is so amazing that it can be hard to fathom or put into words. He will not let you sink. You may have to push and preserver but God’s test come with an amazing outcome when you stick with it, stick with Him!
The most vulnerable thing a person can do is put themselves out there. But what is “there?” Is it someone else? Is it a new place? It’s different for everyone. I think the most detrimental thing a person goes through is having all of their innocence ripped away. The innocence of protecting their heart. Their mind. Their hope. We fail at a lot of things. We just wish we didn’t fail so badly. Do we take shelter and never try again or do we push ourselves outside of our comfort zones and know that there’s more out “there” for us?
