No new year prophetic word.

Last year God showed me a wild ox regarding this year. Like so many words I have gotten yearly about blessing, overflow and revival, it never accompanied how to, since we have been trained to sit and wait to see what God does. But we rarely see those promises as a body, because we as a body need to move with the head.

But this year I took some brave/stupid moves out of my comfort zones and I didn’t realise what it would entail. So as a wild ox, you face the attacks of wild animals and need to find your own sustenance as well. My point is there is a practical side to a word.

So instead of giving a prophetic word for 2023, I will rather just say what I am seeing, because the scope of it is bigger than next year.

On Christmas day God showed me how He gave His Son as a Gift to the world. So many Christians choose to celebrate that gift on Christmas, but there is more to it. We are to see what the purpose of the Gift is.

He came as a Son, so that there would be many sons.

For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers.
Romans 8:29 ESV

For it was fitting that he, for whom and by whom all things exist, in bringing many sons to glory, should make the founder of their salvation perfect through suffering. For he who sanctifies and those who are sanctified all have one source. That is why he is not ashamed to call them brothers,
Hebrews 2:10‭-‬11 ESV

The purpose was and still is His childrens(sons). Just like He was and is the gift, He leaves us His Spirit also as a Gift.

And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God.
Galatians 4:6‭-‬7 ESV

For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!” The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God,
Romans 8:14‭-‬16 ESV

So the Spirit is our witness of being Gods’ sons. We are to live according to the Gift(Spirit) and not according to our flesh(own ability and reasoning).

Because of Jesus and Holy Spirit, we are made the gift to creation. This is why scripture says it this way :

For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God.
Romans 8:19 ESV

Creation waits for you to manifest a son and not your flesh. The son is driven by the Spirit of God. But the shift will come when we realise we are a gift.

This is not the prideful and arrogant thinking we are used to, thinking we are some gift to the world through our own flesh effort or ability. It is realising the calling and purpose of our life through God.

This will be accompanied by a leveling that is coming upon the church. Every part of the body will start walking as a gift to the earth. Not just the pastor or prophet on your facebook banner. The leaders will be the greatest servants and cheerleaders to the rest of the body of Christ to walk in their calling as a gift.

When he had washed their feet and put on his outer garments and resumed his place, he said to them, “Do you understand what I have done to you? You call me Teacher and Lord, and you are right, for so I am. If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have given you an example, that you also should do just as I have done to you. Truly, truly, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him.
John 13:12‭-‬16 ESV

So I want to ask you if you know that you are Gods gift to the world? Or do you want to remain feeling like the problem? Or that some other person is more anointed and that you will only at least make it to heaven?

His purpose is that you will walk as a gift from Him, with His purpose and heart toward the earth. Creation is waiting, this is not a one man show, not even Jesus thought so, because you are His body. Level up or level down, wash some feet. God wants us all to be part, so the body can function as it was supposed to.
