| The Crowning Jewels
In the month of June, God is releasing strategies from heaven for people’s divine assignments. He is inviting people to “clear the clutter” in their lives and let go of things that are good, but not His best. He is bringing us into a deeper relationship with Him and–from relationship–releasing revelation. It’s time to “prophesy your future” by partnering with His word and declaring what He’s doing. Make the decision to stop complaining and to use your words to declare life. 

Heavenly Strategies 
All this,” David said, “I have in writing as a result of the Lord's hand on me, and he enabled me to understand all the details of the plan.”
1 Chronicles 28.19 

God is releasing strategies from heaven over people’s lives–their divine assignments and callings. Angels are on assignment, handing out kingdom blueprints; these are being made available to those who are seeking Him. God is giving people divine strategies and showing them the ways they can partner with Heaven in order to fill His purposes on the earth. 

This is a beautiful, but sacred invitation. And in order to step into the fullness of God’s calling on your life, not everything can come with you. You may have numbed out, avoided, or primarily sought entertainment outside of God. But when you see your heavenly assignment, those other things lose their value. It’s time to write down what God shows you and to hold it close to your heart. Trust Him, even if what He reveals to you seems too big for you to accomplish on your own. Invite trusted people to share this vision with you and take a step of faith. Trust that God will bring the strategies you need as you move in accordance with His voice. If this is for you, God is opening your eyes to see the action steps you need to take today even if that is simply writing down the vision. 

Cleaning Out Dark Places
Keep your heart with all diligence for out of it flows the wellspring of life. 
Proverbs 4.23 

A few weeks ago, my housemates and I (Katelyn) decided to tackle cleaning our garage. We had moved in a frenzy a year ago and the garage had grown chaotic over the winter. Not only did it feel incredible to finally haul off mounds of unused items to the thrift store, it created space for what we actually wanted to use our garage for. However, in the process of cleaning,  we found and killed multiple black widow spiders that had just been hiding amidst the chaos and darkness. YUCK. 

Chaos and clutter, while not inherently wrong, make space for unwanted guests both in the spiritual and the natural. Black widow spiders were hiding in the chaos and clutter of our garage. In the same way, resentment, anger, sadness, unprocessed pain etc. can hide in the clutter of our busy lives. When we never take time to slow down and pause, we end up carrying around an unnecessary amount of physical and emotional baggage. 

God instructed His children to honor the Sabbath and keep it holy because we need to slow down and rest. And slowing down is one of the best ways we can connect with God. Our brains and bodies heal when we sleep and when we rest. Our minds and spirits are the same. It’s important to clear the clutter of our physical, mental and emotional lives. When you say “no” to the things that are no longer serving you, whether that’s physical junk, extra activities that you’re doing because you’re “supposed to,” unhealthy relationships that you’re scared to walk away from, you make space to say “yes” to the BEST that God has in store for you. 

So take time to pause and reevaluate your commitments, clear out your junk-filled spaces, and clean house. Where you’re holding onto bitterness or unforgiveness, invite God in! It may be that God specifically leads you on a healing journey or changes your path because you take time to slow down and reconnect with Him. He has so much goodness in store for you and you will discover the joy and liberation that comes from letting go and cleaning house! 

Revelation Flows from Relationship
With it [the coal] he touched my mouth and said, “See, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away and your sin atoned for.” Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
Isaiah 6.7-8

Surrender is one of the greatest keys to breakthrough you will ever experience. We often search for answers while holding onto the things keeping us stuck, whether that’s addiction or unhealthy relationships or old patterns. However, when we come to the Lord in surrender, revelation flows. 

Isaiah surrendered and asked God to purify His heart and his eyes and ears were opened to what God was doing in heaven, searching for someone to send. In the same way, when we surrender and allow God to purify us, He opens up our eyes and ears to see the things of God. This can look like learning to recognize His voice and the ways He speaks. He doesn’t always use words, rather, He can speak to us through our five senses. This may come through an inner knowing that you recognize as His voice, seeming coincidences that keep showing up, physically experiencing His Presence (this can feel like a weightiness), or even noticing that when you pray, it seems like a beautiful fragrance has filled the room. In the same way we have physical senses, we have spiritual ones. 

If you’re hungry for the things of God, ask Him to open up the eyes of your heart to what He’s doing. If you feel like you haven’t been able to hear Him, then come to Him in faith and surrender and ask Him to open up the eyes of your heart to recognize Him. Partner with people who have a history of knowing His voice and see the ways you grow in cultivating your spiritual senses. 

Prophesy Your Future
The tongue has the power of life and death and those who love it will eat its fruit. 
Proverbs 18.21

One of the things we are most passionate about at The Crowning Jewels is the importance of the tongue. Scripture speaks strongly of the significance of your words, yet so many of us go through life flippantly using our words. We complain and criticize, finding fault with others, our bodies, our situations, or our relationships. We make jokes about our struggles saying things like “well, shoulda known this would’ve happened to me,” or “that’s just my luck.” And we wonder why we feel stuck and like nothing is ever changing. 

This is because we can literally create life or death with our words. Our words are like seeds, they go into the soil of our lives and grow fruit bearing trees or choking and destructive weeds. If you’re experiencing an onslaught of negative circumstances in your life, one of the first places you need to look is at your words. Your voice matters and your words have power. What are you saying over your circumstances, body, relationships etc? Are you prophesying hope and a bright future? Or are you cursing your life with your words and with complaining? 

God is teaching us to speak words of life and He is calling us to pay attention to what we speak and speak in alignment with His promises. So many of the things we have declared have come to pass because we spoke them out in faith. It’s time to align your words to match what God is saying and doing. It’s time to prophesy blessing and favor over your life. Speak out good things even when circumstances look the opposite. If you need to go on a negativity fast where you stop complaining for 40 days, in order to change your habits, DO IT! So many of God’s children are caught in cycles of destruction because they haven’t changed the way they speak about their lives. When you change your words, you’re not just saying positive things. You’re actually changing the trajectory of your life to line up with God’s purposes for you. 

At The Crowning Jewels, it's our desire and our mission to bring encouragement, to build others up, and to bring comfort to people’s lives (1 Corinthians 14.3). Each month, our founder, Anne Jackson, and our main writer, Katelyn Alexander ask the Lord what He’s doing in the coming month and for any words of encouragement He might have for His people. We believe that prophetic words need to be encouraging and edifying. Moreover, with a corporate prophetic word, not all words are applicable to all people. If our words bless you, please take hold of them and apply them in your own life. If it’s not specific to you, please pass it on to someone else who might be blessed.

As always, the prophetic is a free gift from heaven and will always be something we freely share. As a prophetic business, it’s our mission to bring encouragement and edification to people through the free gift of prophecy, with our product being jewelry.

We at The Crowning Jewels believe in the absolute, transformational power of declarations. We know that truth comes by hearing (Romans 10.17), and speaking truth is an active way for us to renew our minds (Romans 12.2). We invite you to partner with what God is doing and say these declarations for the remainder of the month. We would love to hear what God does! Please email us your testimony at hello@thecrowningjewels.com.
