”You have forgotten what manner of woman you are….I have big shoes for you to fill!’. I was woken up by these words from Jesus for you, His becoming Bride! I saw the most beautiful pair of high-heeled gold sparkly shoes in the Spirit that were huge, far bigger than me even, never mind my shoes! I felt myself respond with ‘They’re enormous’, as I wondered how I could even climb up to get into them. As I uttered those words i felt Jesus highlight the ‘or’ in the middle of the word. This is the French word for gold, and He was saying in the language of love:
It is time to go for gold My Bride…you have been focusing on receiving My love and being My lover, but now My Bride it is time to focus on being My warrior. That does not mean that you have to let go of loving, we wage war in love. In fact it is because of the perfect love that we rise up in warfare to bring justice, and to protect those we love. Neither does it mean that you stop being the beautiful, feminine you just because you are called to contend for My Kingdom. You can fight beautifully! This is part of what redemption looks like, I bring beauty out of the ashes in your life . You are My mighty woman warrior and I designed you to love and to fight. As My Bride I have created and called you to do both, they are not separate parts of you, they are at the heart of who you are. I am calling your spirit, your heart and your mind to Bridal maturity.
Have you not been feeling the buffeting in the Spirit in your own life, sensing a deep calling to deep within you? The enemy has been circling around you and seeking to cause a swirl in your circumstances. We are in strategic times. My Bride, this is your time to arise and shine …
Isaiah 60:1-2 (The Passion Translation)
1 Rise up in splendor and be radiant, for your light has dawned, and Yahweh’s glory now streams from you! 2 Look carefully! Darkness blankets the earth, and thick gloom covers the nations, but Yahweh arises upon you and the brightness of his glory appears over you!
Come up higher in the Spirit and fix your eyes on what is unseen … where you feel like you have mountains in front of you, come up with me and stand on the mountain tops . I will share my perspective with you . You have the mind of Christ. I am not intimidated by the mountains, nor do I adapt to tolerating them… I flatten the mountains and I raise up the valleys. I am inviting you to lean on me as we walk together. You are My partner in ruling and reigning from your true position of being seated with Me in Heavenly places.
Open your spiritual eyes to look and see what is going on in the Spirit realm . Where you feel stuck in your life in the natural, there is always a Spirit solution . Where the enemy has brought a storm in your circumstances, I bring the stillness. It is in the stillness that you have the discernment and the clarity to know how to wage war with Me, how to live as My shining overcomer.
It is time to align with your true Bridal identity and these gold sparkly shoes will fit you like they were made for you. Because they were! These are My shoes of peace in your Spirit armour as My chosen warrior. Put on your Bridal shoes and walk with Me, I am the One who makes a way where there seems to be no way…’
Invitation from Jesus for you: You may wish to repent for aligning with your own view of yourself and not God’s. As a prophetic act in the Spirit you may want to take off the old shoes you have been wearing and walking in, that you thought were fitting but have taken you down old paths. Maybe invite Jesus to show you how to align with your true identity as His Bride, so that you can step up and step into your new gold, sparkly, Bridal shoes …and as you do so be asking Him Jesus ‘show me what it looks like to fight lovingly and beautifully with you…’
