|Friends, As we embark on this new year, I wanted to share a prophetic revelation that has inspired and encouraged me, and I believe it will do the same for you.I prayerfully made a list of goals to accomplish in 2024, yet my mind naturally brought up everything from 2023 that I did not complete. I felt the weight of shame, disappointment, and judgment setting in. I went from being fanciful to being frustrated to feeling like a failure.
It’s the familiar loop of should haves, could haves, and self-improvement reflections rooted in perfection. Regret, rewind, and replay quickly kicked in as I analyzed instead of celebrating.. Over time, I’ve gained the insight to recognize these patterns, I’ve experienced the tangible love of God, and accepted that His unwavering affection embraces me in my humanity and imperfection,
1. This is why you and I must know the heart, character, and nature of God’s timeless love for us! Love is heaven’s measuring stick!
– Here are some more tips for recognizing & healing the critic within.
The voice of the Holy Spirit does not judge or condemn. (1 Cor 2: 13-14)
The nature of God is not critical and impatient. (Romans 1:20)
The Word of God assures us that ‘He who began a good work in us is faithful to complete it.’ (Phil 1:6) “We are the work of His hand, and He will perfect that which concerns us.” (Ps 138)
The Spirit of God in us is the Spirit of Truth, so I always bring my “feelings” and “thoughts” through the FILTER of the FRUIT of the Spirit. When it produces anything opposite of the Fruit of the Spirit, I release it. (Gal.5:22)
If we do not begin to challenge & question our thoughts, wrong thoughts will become familiar ones. We have to hold them to the measuring stick of heaven and not our humanity!
2. Maybe you are like me and love to build, create, and innovate; progress is your language. There is nothing wrong with that. But here is the revelation God gave me through a good friend about the dangers of not slowing down to celebrate your wins!
My “aha moment from a prophetic word: “Charla – You birthed it but haven’t nursed it.” She was right! When you give birth to a baby, it requires nurturing, attention, connection, and celebration. If not, it will fail to thrive. We get so caught up in the victory of actual birth that we neglect to continue giving it the attention and nurturing it requires.
I believe that right now, God wants to add to our arsenal; He is taking us from builders and innovators to protectors and champions who know how to sustain and maintain the things He has placed in our hands and hearts.
It is time for us to come fully alive and awake to the gifts, callings, talents, ideas, and solutions God has put within us. This world needs what you carry.
FRIENDS, Notice that the Holy Spirit was not shaming me. My friend gave me a prophetic insight from heaven that strengthened, comforted, and encouraged me. (1 Cor 14:3) Her word to me was framed in love for my good – that is the core of the prophetic gift we all carry. And your voice carries a frequency of Heaven that resonates with those who need what you hold within. (Psalms 42:7)As we enter 2024, I am praying for you, believing that this is the year God solidifies your message, restores your voice, heals your pain, and renews your strength. Marriages will be rebuilt, visions released, and you will find the courage to run your race.
If you have questions or need a safe place to process, I’m here! You can schedule with me or our pastoral team at this link: Book with Charla.
I celebrate you today!
