He Had Made All Things Beautiful Prayer Of Declaration And Supplication
So that your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men (human philosophy), but in the power of God.
Yet when we are among the full-grown (spiritually mature Christians who are ripe in understanding), we do impart a [higher] wisdom (the knowledge of the divine plan previously hidden); but it is indeed not a wisdom of this present age or of this world nor of the leaders and rulers of this age, who are being brought to nothing and are doomed to pass away.
But rather what we are setting forth is a wisdom of God once hidden [from the human understanding] and now revealed to us by God–[that wisdom] which God devised and decreed before the ages for our glorification [to lift us into the glory of His presence] (1 Corinthians 2:5-7 Amplified)
Lord, You are an infinite God without end or beginning. Not only are you aware of all I have ever been or experienced, you are aware of all there is to come. In fact, You have already been there and know me…know all I have experienced from moment to moment. You have experienced my life in an intimate way even to the numbering of the hairs on my head. Every detail of my life is important and valuable to You. Though I am constrained in my thinking as it relates to time, You are not. The greatest hindrance to not living a life outside the constraints of time is to see it limited and unyielding…to see time as having no potential outside of the moment. To do so eliminates all consequences and blessings resulting out of time based actions on my part. Time is eternal and I must see it as such. What I do in time affects the times to come; therefore, it has eternal consequences both good and bad.
Teach me to see beyond the moment into a realm where there is no time so I can put more value on what I do at any given time. Teach me to see everything I do with eternal eyes. As I do this, what I participate in or don’t participate in will change in order to bring about the most effective change.
Lord, when it comes to You, time has no power to stop or hold back anything You desire to see and have done. When Joshua fought in battle, time stood still and the sun did not set until victory was accomplished. Therefore, I say the sands of time running through the hour glass of my life are all subject to You. I will not limit myself by what I see or by disobedience in any way. I will not run to and fro comparing myself or trying to accumulate the sand of another for my own purposes. The hour glass of my life is not confined to time but is eternal, for when I leave this physical life I simply continue on in You. I step over the boundaries of time which cloak the true nature of who I am, an eternal son of the Most High God.
Instead of being one who is halted or holds back, I am one who hears the Father’s voice and acts accordingly even as Christ did when on the earth. As a result, I am free and others are free as well. In doing this, I have set my eyes beyond the natural to the supernatural where all things are possible…where nothing is limited by time. I am one who is saturated with eternal perspective and the power to be transformed. I am one saturated with the power of God to bring about transformation. I am eternal and not temporal; therefore, I think in eternal ways when it comes to my everyday life and actions. I am not cloaked in time. I am cloaked in supernatural, eternal glory as a living, manifest representation of Christ on the earth.
Lord, the experiences, struggles and circumstances of life have no bearing on Your goodness. Bad things in life do not determine Your goodness. Plain and simple, You are good and truthful at all times regardless. I cannot look at things around me as a barometer of who You are. To do so would limit You to a level of being subject to the actions of men accomplished in finite time. There is no deception in Your heart for You are Truth. All the Words You have ever spoken have been in Your heart before all time and now are being revealed through the present age and the ages to come. Not one will fall to the ground nor will they come back to you without accomplishing the purpose for which they were sent.
Lord, I declare myself to be a keeper of every Word You have given to me and none will fall into uninhabited wilderness places. Every Word falls into the good soil of my heart to bring forth eternal purposes in supernatural ways.
I declare the desires of the Lord for my life shall unfold step by step as His light fills my path and gives me direction. The thoughts of the Lord’s heart for me are available and accessible at all times and I am one who puts my ear to His heart that I might know them. Every Word proceeding from Him to me has the power to transform my life and heart if I choose to embrace each one with faith. The ravages of time in my own life, the lives of those I love and those sent to me can and will be changed by the release of an eternal redemptive Word from the Lord. As a result generations can and will be transformed.
The Lord has consecrated me and set me apart for His good pleasure, not according to my works but according to the redemptive work of the Cross. Therefore, no matter how much time has sifted through my hands, the grace, mercy and call of God on my life will have its way as I surrender my heart. One by one the dominos will fall and I will obtain the prize of my high calling in Christ Jesus. As a result, blessings will flow down through the ages in many profitable and redeeming ways. Today and every day after the Lord has called me to speak no evil, hear no evil and see no evil. He has called me to speak the Word, hear the Word and see the Word come to pass. I am chosen and I will walk with eternal perspective displaying the glory of the Lord for ages to come.
Lord, Your great love which loved me even while I was at my very worst…while I was a sinner without any desire for me amazes me…cradles me and calls me to higher ground. Your love calls me to a place of complete acceptance in the Beloved where no condemnation, guilt or shame can live. Knowing how much you were aware of all my faults, failings and outright rebellion yet loved me, sets my heart ablaze with gratitude and thanksgiving. To know Your great unconditional love, sets my heart on a course to live outside the limits and confines of time with realization of eternal results.
Therefore, I declare myself as one who lives in the goodness, mercy, grace, love and hope of God at all times. I live and move within the beating of the Lord’s heart to accomplish His will on a day by day, moment by moment basis. The plans and desires of the Lord’s heart for me are too numerous to be counted and it will take all of eternity to fulfill them in any measure. His thoughts toward me are more than every grain of sand and the sands of time cannot displace one thought or one plan, for I am seated in heavenly places with Him far above all things natural. The temporal things of my life are giving way and will give way to the eternal things of His Word and His heart.
I declare that My natural life on this earth is but for a moment and will give way in the blink of an eye when I step into the realm of His eternal timeless glory. All that is of Him in me will continue on to experience and do more eternal things. The ages past and the ages to come are all permeated with Him and are pregnant with purpose at all times. I am right now this very moment receiving revelation, truth, wisdom and understanding for the moment and for the ages to come. I am an eternal timeless one created in the image of Father, Son and Holy Spirit. I am seated in heavenly places far above the tediousness of life and I embrace my position with a fully surrendered heart. I am timeless in Him
Lord, I hear Your call to come and learn from the potter’s wheel…to come and discover truths about You and how they relate to me. As I learn about how You go to great effort to rescue devastated and abused jars…abused pots of clay, my heart ascends in praise for the one who loved me enough to rescue me from the devil’s clutches…from his field of broken dreams and lost worth. How I love You Lord. There is no other who could do or will do what You have done. Your tender, ever foreseeing heart has loved and will always love me, cracks and all. Thinking about the abandoned, rejected pots in relation to my own life brings tears to my eyes as I ponder Your goodness. All I want to have is the same heart towards the loved, the broken and the lost as You had for me.
Every lifeless dry place in my heart was most important to You…so much so, the sacrifice of Your life was required and freely given. You never gave up on me for the vision of Your heart for my life was the joy set before You as You endured the Cross. I cannot imagine loving a friend, let alone a vicious enemy, enough to lay down my life with the possibility the act would not be appreciated or even accepted. However, You looked beyond the sin…the emptiness…the temporal…and peered into the very makeup of my being and said, “It is good.”
Lord, You took my broken pieces…all the worthless things and pounded the lies surrounding my worth and value into fine dust. You removed all the thorns and thistles of life and continue to do so. Everything embedded into my heart meant to cause me evil You turned for good as You released saturating amounts of living water into my very soul where unfertile, unloved soil abided. You scooped soil and living water into Your hand and placed it on Your Potter’s wheel to shape me… form me into a vessel of honor You always knew me to be. What a good treasure hunter You are.
I so want to be just like you in the reality of my life, not in theory but in practicality. In my head I know these things you say to me are true; but never the less, they are not always revelation to my heart. I ask you to open the eyes of my heart and fill me with so much love I overflow with love and grace into every area of my life…that I flow into the people I struggle with on an ongoing basis. Let the mystery of the ages…the love of the Bridegroom for His bride unfold with natural and eternal power to transform both me and others. Strengthen me for battle and teach me to marvel even more at what the touch of Your hands has accomplished in me as I move to Your rhythm on the wheel of Your heart. May Your fragrance be the only thing I emanate. I will not desire the fragrance of another but will be pleased with my place…vessel that You have taken so much time to fashion. Yes Lord, I am one who was beautiful before all time and always will be.
Lord, not only have You loved me for all time, You called me beautiful too. This is amazing and a joy to My heart. There have been those in my life who have not seen me as beautiful…who have judged me based on their own perceptions or thought they alone knew the intent of my heart, but not You. While they were judging, You were looking on my true motive…my true desire to be like You and overcome as You overcame. You knew I hated my sin but felt trapped and unsure of how to be transformed into Your image in my everyday life. It did not matter what You saw me do, I was and still am beautiful to You. Help me to realize this in the depth of my being…in any place where I was wounded, unloved or unaccepted. Heal every place in my soul where I cannot accept the beautiful picture You see me to be and I will be changed.
This is the day I declare I am a beautiful coat of many colors fashioned and formed in my mother’s womb to display the glory of God in and on the earth. Every color fashioned and meant for me will be sewn into my coat with great delight and without delay. I will not miss one color…one patch meant for me. Moment by moment, my coat of many colors is unfolding like a beautiful tapestry in order to display the plans and purposes of the Lord’s heart for me. Because of this, all I am will be a blessing in time, throughout time and into eternity. The Lord has looked at me…He has looked upon me…and has and forever will declare me to be GOOD! Everything in my life is being transformed into the reality of His likeness in my everyday life. I am a reflection of the beauty of the Lord in every way and in every situation.
Lord, I testify this day the manifestation of my divine purpose is not for a future day but is being demonstrated in the moment by moment…hour by hour and day by day things of life and love. My heart is fully satisfied with the Lord and the fragrance He has placed in me.
Come Lord and cloak me…cover me…and surround me with Your sense of purpose and beauty as who You are in me unfolds before my very eyes. The time of mantling has come. The time of cloaking has come and no opinions or words of men can stop it. For the Lord has and is adorning me according to His pleasure and not according to the opinions and ideas of man. I am truly one who was beautiful before all time, in time and for all time to come. Amen…Read Accompanying Love Letter
