Silver Hearts Melting in His Grace

Silver Hearts Melting in His Grace

I saw a beautiful vision that took my breath away and left me in awe, yet confused.

I saw at least eight heart-shaped silver metal objects with the beauty of jewelry, but larger than any jewelry I had ever seen. These hearts the size of your hand were strung on a thick silver rod that had a hook at one end to ensure they would not fall off that side. The open end was tilted toward a huge fire burst. This flaming ball shot out sparks and cascaded fire down in a dripping mass. The molten mass acted more like a liquid than an ordinary blaze.

Silver hearts slid toward the fireball supernaturally slower than possible, allowing me to see them enter the blaze and melt. Silver hearts melted in His grace. As the silver melted, it dripped down into a bowl just below the fire. I understood that not a single drop of the valuable metal was lost and, in fact, that was the purpose of this process. To restore to the Kingdom of God the provision that we had willingly used in agreement with the kingdom of darkness. The precious metal shaped into a beautiful pendant represented the gifts that God gives each one of us that we choose to use to cover our ugly sin.

He explained to me that as the redeemed of God, we have access to unfathomable beauty. When we use our wisdom, precious time, will, and strength to agree with the enemy, we wrap what is ugly in beauty. We are, in fact, robbing from the Kingdom of God to give to the kingdom of darkness. How horrid.

This led to the question, “When had I done this?” He explained to me I had agreed with the kingdom of darkness whenever I refused to forgive or engaged in willful sin.

When we harbor unforgiveness, we seal forgiveness, love, and gentleness in these hard but beautiful shells. We forsake the grace that was so freely given to us. It is only righteous and correct that we forgive who we need to and restore to the Kingdom of God what is His.

Jesus paid for our unforgiveness, pain, rage, anger, bitterness, disease, and sin on the cross. We do not have the right to keep them.

Stop plundering the Kingdom of God by harboring unrepented sin. Release your sin and allow yourself to be used by God for all the purposes of the Lord. Harboring our sin and trying to keep it hidden in what we hope are beautiful facades is foolish. God knows our every thought and action. The sooner we agree with God, the better.

“Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you” (Ephesians 4:31-32, ESV).

We must restore our wills, time, strength, and energy to concentrate on what is good and not evil.

Prayer for you and me: Thank You, Jesus, that You paid for all sin and its horrible consequences. Teach us how to forgive, expose our hearts to Your gentle work. Show us where we have any unrepented sin that we may not even be aware that we are engaging in. Melt our silver hearts in Your grace. We want to agree fully with what You did on the cross. All benefits of Your powerful grace we accept and ask You to reveal to us. We repent of any time we acted in unforgiveness, gossip, crude behavior, or words in Jesus’ name. Amen.
