Kingdom Conversations

God's Heart for Kingdom Writers

In November I spoke at the Mount Hermon Writers Retreat. I share with the audience what the Lord revealed to me about Kingdom writers. I want to share that with you today. Blessings, Lynn


135037970_10160494802758332_8777818351789899330_nIn 2017 the Lord spoke to me often through my journaling. I wrote down what he was telling me and many of my journals became devotions that were published in my local city’s newspaper. Eventually I collected them into a book. Kingdom Conversations.

In preparation to speak to the writers at the retreat, I sat once again with my journal as I was curious what God really thought about us writers. I waited with my pen ready. As a readied writer and asked the Father a question.

I was undone by the immediate and passionate response to my question.

Listen in as we have a conversation with our Father in heaven.

Q: Father, what is your heart for writers?

He replied: Kingdom writers are the echo of my voice. Their lives and their stories are lived out on pages of books…. And these pages reflect my love, healing, truth, wisdom and goodness. Their written words reflect my Son. Because their story, their books, lead to redemption.

Then He went on….. Encourage these special creatives of the Kingdom to write from their hearts, write of their love and faith.

Then He said tell them to be vulnerable. Sharing your real, story, the good, bad and ugly in light of redemption is where we connect with others. And connection is family. It is love, and it is eternal.

He said: Be brave. It takes courage to write with vulnerability. But know that you are not standing alone. I am always with you. The Holy Spirit is with you. The angels have been assigned to protect and assist you. And a great cloud of witnesses is watching, and all are cheering you forward. (I could see in my mind the saints and relatives, who passed on cheering the loudest.)

Be the path-maker: Show your readers the pathway through the weeds, the briars and the traps of the enemy. Show them the hidden way through pain, confusion, and loss. Show them what freedom looks like. They look to you for the truth to lead them forward through the darkness into the light and into hope. Help them to take My hand when they can’t see past the diagnosis, the divorce, the broken dreams and all that seems hopeless.

Be the teacher: You, my Kingdom writers, teach my people to dream again. Teach them my holy Word. Restore their broken identity and lost purpose. Reveal the many promises I’ve given to them and that I stand behind them in the trenches. Instruct them in the holy ways that they emerge from deception and find release from the snares of lies and the mire of untruth. Reveal how truth changed your life and will also change their lives. Lead them to discover that a broken heart becomes healed and made whole in the light and love of Jesus Christ. Lead them from fear into safety and stability. You can lead them because you have walked the path of humility and service. You are readied and prepared to direct the many through your example of compassion and love in action.

Be a friend: Laugh together, giggle, make your readers smile and anticipate the goodness of life through Jesus, my son. Introduce them to a way of living that is outside of selfishness and worldly pursuits. Please show my people that living life identified as a son or daughter of God, is the highest and best life and fully attainable now, not just in heaven.

Hold my sons and daughters when they are sad. Celebrate their victories. Always, always, always write to give them HOPE. Encourage their faith. Write words that inspire them to love Me and love others with a full heart.

My Beloved Kingdom Scribe, this writer’s call that you are walking out is a renowned high and holy calling. It is only for a chosen few. Your words echo my heart for a lost and broken world.

Kingdom writer, you determine to live out my truths, then write about your experience and my faithfulness. Then share your words and illuminate Me and My love. Illuminate my son, Jesus, he will save them.

Kingdom writers, as your Father, I commend you. Thank you for giving from the depths of your pain, your hope, and your struggle. Thank you for pouring out yourself.

Your words bring me honor and glory.

Well done good and faithful servant. Now go and share your gifts and talents with the world.

  • Be vulnerable
  • Be brave
  • Be authentic
  • Be a path maker
  • Be a teacher
  • Be a leader
  • Be a friend

Your book is my book. Your words are an echo of my heart.

Let’s pray:

Father, I take up Your charge and declare today thatI will fulfill our high and holy calling. We will write to reflect your love. Father when uncertainty, frustration, or fear of rejection tries to speak doubt into my purpose, I ask you to remind me who I am and whose I am and that one written word and change a life, can save a life.

Today I determine to share the hope we have with the world. Stir up an unquenchable passion to write and speak your truth. Let me become a hope bearer to bring illumination to the path less traveled that others may find their way. Bless me as we write. Place your creativity upon my heart, mind and let your words flow onto the screen.

Father, thank you for establishing me as a Kingdom scribe. In Jesus name.

Please stand:

Today, let's make a stand and declaration. REPEAT AFTER ME, ALOUD:

Father, in the name of Jesus, I am committed to reveal your kingdom to others. I will write and speak Your truths. I will be a hope bearer and teach others to love. I will share my story with vulnerability and courage. I will come alongside people as a friend with humility. I will point them to healing, honor, and joy as a leader to the pathway of freedom.

I declare myself a Kingdom writer. In Jesus name. AMEN

Conversation With Papa. Why the First-Born?

First Fruit First Born A Conversation With Abba: 

A few days ago, I sat down with the Lord and began reading a passage from the Old Testament. The Lord speaks to Moses and tells him that He has chosen the Levites as His chosen/dedicated people in place of the first-born sons.

My curiosity arose and I admit I’ve never understood why the Lord chose First born? Why sons? Why is this so important to Him?

I’ve made it my goal not to just pass over passages I don’t comprehend or understand the reasoning. But to ask the Lord to explain. He is very good to respond, and I’ve gained a great deal of clarity from the Holy Spirit about the Word.

So join me as I share my conversation with the Lord. Perhaps you were curios as well?

Good Morning Abba, I’m here. Speak to me. (This is where I pause, and began to read the Bible.)

Lord, why the first-born sons? Why is it so important to you? Why do you ask for their dedication? The first impression was that first born sons or daughters are not any more or less important that other children born in succession. THAT IS COOL.

He answered me saying: First Fruits. It’s about honor and my love for the sons (all the children not just boys). The first born are given as the first fruits of the womb. The signify great value and I treasure them and keep them. Lynn it’s all about honor. Knowing I’m a good Father, it’s honor to dedicate and give first fruits of the womb to me and allow me to be that child’s caretaker. It’s worship, it’s love and sovereignty and respect.

Offering a child is noble, and it is a deep trust and faith and an offering of great love to dedicate first born unto Me. It is a very high gift that most will not offer. And thusly, the first born missed the blessings that come from this dedication.

WOW LORD! I respond. Thank you for this understanding.

Then the Lord said: I love you, My child. Keep asking. I love your heart that you want to know more.

Then an understanding or revelation arrived in my mind: First born carries a heavier responsibility than the other children. For example, they often work harder, they are often caretakers of siblings and parents. They are responsible for carrying property and a marriage to carry their name and inheritance. In many circumstances in years past, as well as today, the family business/farm is passed to the first born as they are responsible to continue to run the business. They are called to care for their parents, the orphans and widows.

With great responsibility the Lord offers great reward. A double portion. This is what it means: Double- greater responsibility brings with it greater sacrifice of personal desires. But I send to the first-born greater reward in the way of prosperity, peace of mind, identity, love, and honor.

Okay, this is the revelation I received. What are your thoughts? Hugs, Lynn

MY SON HEALS ALL

He himself bore our sins in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.” 1 PETER 2:24

 My child, fear not! The enemy has petitioned to sort through you—even unto death.

However, his petitions have been denied in the heavenly courts this very hour. Although he has hit you hard, the accuser WILL—NOT—PREVAIL!

Kingdom Conversations New Cover July 27 2020For I have received the fruit of thy hands and count it as righteousness. Thusly, I have relayed unto you through the hands of the angelic forces the healing balm of Gilead. This oil is sent forth for your protection and healing.

Behold! I am delivering your healing now. Do not doubt. Do not listen to those who walk with fear. Their voices pour forth from the spirits of doom—gloom—and fear.

Take charge! Today, decree the promises of my hand. Set them as edicts over yourself. Stand upon them. Speak them. Pray them back to me. Arise daily bearing witness that your healing progresses into finality.

Worship in the House of the LORD! Tell of my wonders. Reveal my promises. Stand in faith with the communion of the saints. The blood that is sprinkled speaks a better word than that of Abel. The blood covenant is mercy, grace, forgiveness, healing, and your wholeness.

All is well, my child.

I call you my beloved. You walk in my favor, hope, truth, and power. Decree my purposes forward in your life. You shall see my faithfulness unto all your petitions. And many will glory because you chose to believe.

Blessed are you among many, beloved child. I carry you in the very palm of my hand—the Lord, the LORD, God Almighty!

You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit —fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you (John 15:16).

Praise the Lord, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits—who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s (Psalm 103:1-5).

But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed (Isaiah 53:5).

Jesus saith unto him, "Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.” And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked (John 5:8-9a).

A large crowd followed him, and he healed all who were ill (Matthew 12:15b).

Today, in the name of Jesus, I set a decree over myself for the complete healing of my body. I ask for healing specifically _______________. Lord Jesus, by your name, blood, and authority, I stand upon the promises of God’s Word and in faith to see all my petitions come forth. Thank you, Jesus. I worship you, the Father, and the Holy Spirit. AMEN

Mantle of Boldness by Lynn Donovan

I've been working through the edits of my new devotional, Kingdom Conversations. 90 devotions for those who hunger and thirst for the Voice of God. 

I read this one today and it's it spot on for our current hour. Read it aloud. Pray it and step into it Kingdom Warriors. Hugs, Lynn

Kingdom Conversations cover photoMantle of Boldness

You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

MATTHEW 5:14-16

Out of this dark and wicked world I choose you. Be my light.

I choose you to rise out of the shadows shouldered with a cloak of boldness. You may feel ill-equipped to stand against the shaming from a public that is raging against me, but I have released into you a spirit of confident peace. Remember my instructions in the book of Ephesians— STAND—just stand for me. I will do the fighting!

I have angels surrounding you. They fight for you at my command. Your words of prayer are strategic battle plans that activate the angelic realm.

This very hour in which you live, you are called to participate in one of the greatest moments of my Kingdom, the Acts 2 Church. This is a critical hour in the history of humanity. And…..

I chose you to see it.

I chose you to live it.

I chose you to pray it forth.

I chose you to prophesy my love, forgiveness, and mercy.

Take my hand, my child.

Stand with me, my heir of salvation.

I bequeath a spirit of boldness upon you!

You are more powerful than you believe, and your life and prayers are bringing the Light into the world this very hour.

Well done, my child. WELL DONE!

 

Father, I receive this mantle of boldness. I choose to step into the high calling you have declared over my life. I accept and am thankful for the grand purposes you designed for me before time began. I receive the Spirit of Boldness and will be a light in my culture.
Thank you, Father. AMEN
