“You are the Father’s golden vessel!
I see nobility in you.
I see glory upon you.

The Holy Spirit is the one Person on this earth who knows us intimately.
And nothing is secret to Him.
No trial, no pain, no scar, no shadow.

Nevertheless, wonder of wonders, the Spirit of God—God Himself in us—sees, and calls forth greatness.

“You are My golden vessel!”

The King’s Golden Vessels

Golden vessel, eagle flying“All King Solomon’s drinking vessels were gold, and all the vessels of the House of the Forest of Lebanon were pure gold. Not one was silver, for this was accounted as nothing in the days of Solomon.” (1 Kings 10:21, NKJV)

This week, I’ve been struck by this verse!
In Solomon’s time, gold was plentiful—and silver became so common they stopped counting it.
“All of the King’s drinking vessels were gold…”

I believe we are coming to such a day, when God’s sons and daughters awaken to their true worth.

  • This will be a time in which miracles that once seemed scarce, will become plentiful!

For He is touching our eyes.
So that we will see who we are in Him.
And what we are capable of.

4 Keys to Seeing Yourself as a Golden Vessel

1. Start Perceiving the Golden Vessel

If you have struggled with feelings of insufficiency, this is good news!
Perhaps, you can identify with what I heard the Lord say to me recently:

“Stop judging the earthen vessel, and start seeing the golden vessel.”

It was a challenge that went straight to the heart.
“How do you perceive yourself?”

Today, reflect on this life-changing truth:

  • There is more grace than you realize, towards you as an earthen vessel
  • And, there is more glory than you know, upon you as His golden vessel!

Right now, shame is being broken off.
Shackles are falling away.

Let the kindness of God soak into your heart.
“The Lord is like a father to his children, tender and compassionate to those who fear him. For he knows how weak we are; he remembers we are only dust.” (Psalm 103:13-14, NKJV)

2. See Yourself as Already a Golden Vessel

What makes the golden vessel, gold?
A gold vessel is created gold.

You can know, without a shadow of a doubt, that you’re His beloved.
You can look upon who you are in Christ.

“But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor.
Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work.”
(2 Timothy 2:20-21, NKJV)

There is a vast difference between striving to become a gold vessel, and realizing (with wonder) that you already are one!

Yet, this is the truth.

  • Instead of trying hard in our own strength to get rid of contamination—and faltering—our starting point is that we are already made holy, through Jesus’ sacrifice (Heb 10:10)

Defilement can’t stick to us, when we are conscious of being holy—sanctified and cleansed.
It falls away!
Today, you can know you are His golden vessel.

3. See Yourself in the Light of Eternity—as a Golden Vessel

Now, here’s another key:
The Apostle Paul reminds us that our outer body is a tent, that will be discarded one day.

Weakness of body and soul; that ageing person in the mirror; there more to us than that!
Hear the Father say, “You are My golden vessel”.

The real you, the inner person of the heart.
The eternal you.
Be assured that through every trial, you are going from glory to glory.
And there will come a time when your glory is fully revealed.

On that day in God’s safekeeping, when we each pass through death into eternal life, the “clay vessel” will be discarded (see 2 Cor 5:1-5).

But God’s Word says you are already glorious!

So, let’s ask, “What does it look like to live now as His golden vessel?”
Today. Tomorrow. And in every situation.

4. Meditate on the Truth that You are Located in Christ

You are in Christ.
And when you look into the mirror of God’s Word and see Jesus, you also see where you are located—in Him.
The mirror gives you perspective.
It not only reveals His glory—but also, your own glory.

And when you look to Heaven, you’re not only looking towards God’s Throne; you are also looking at where you are located (Col 3:1-4).
In glory.

What a relief!
What joy.

Hear Him say, “Beloved! Look into My mirror.”

You do not need to look to yourself, in your earthly frailty, for glory.
You need only look to Jesus. For your life is bound with His.

Your future is joined to His future.
And your glory, with His glory.
You are the King’s golden vessel.

If this message has touched you, I encourage you to look up the Scripture references. Here are some further Scriptures to meditate on: 1 Kings chapter 10, 2 Corinthians chapters 3-5, Colossians chapter 3.

    1. I’m sorry to hear that, Hilda! I’m praying for you, may His resurrection power flow right through you, body, soul and spirit, right now in Jesus’ Name

      1. Trying to press into God. I’m having real difficulty with my previous work for over 10 years holds any relevance in the secular world. I’m also 60 this year. God is leading me in ways I could not have imagined through this period but I still need a job before finances run out in a month. I felt it was an end of an era and God had something new for church and me. I took my long service leave after resigning. My “seeing” is unclear in interpretation and I’m now doubting and feeling anxious. Mary

        1. I’m praying for you right now Mary! May the clarity and door God has for you become clear.
          Thank You Father for all you have for Mary. Your love and favor is abundant! Enrich her faith and embolden her with Your love and courage, in Jesus’ Name

  3. Good day Helen,

    Thanking you very much I am in agreement with the prophetic word “I am truly His golden vessel”

  4. This teaching and word has so inspired me. They all speak to me.
    It’s so rich I will just stay in this for
    A time. God wants us to know where we are. The enemy lies to
    Us and we find ourselves believing
    The lies. But we can know the
    Truth and that truth set’s us free.
    Thank You so much. Wow

    1. That’s so true Betty, it’s like we are conditioned to believing the lies. God’s word shows us a different viewpoint. It sets us free!
      May you delight in His effortless freedom

  5. God bless you abundantly and thank you for sharing all the prophetic words you receive- so anointed!
    Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery by mending the areas of breakage with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum.
    The first time I heard of kintsugi was a friend on 21 November 2020 after I had just been in hospital and was feeling very low spiritually, physically and emotionally. Then the second time was this year when another person shared it at a very poignant time for me as I had been battling with my various health and consequent issues. And then last night again, it was so perfect a third time because it was on a day that I felt the Lord was speaking to me again after I was better listening instead of just complaining to Him. And then imagine my surprise to see your blog in my emails sharing God’s prophetic Word about being God’s golden vessel!
    God bless and thank you for being such a Spirit-filled and led faithful instrument of Christ

    1. Hi Pravina, that’s amazing to hear you relate this to kintsugi!
      This was in my notes, but I didn’t have room to use it in the blog:
      “The Japanese art of kintsugi is where broken pottery is repaired using gold.
      I’ve often heard it used as a parable, to illustrate how we don’t need to hide our scars, but God can use them, those imperfections, to reveal His beauty.
      And it’s true.

      But what if, you could also see it this way: that the cracks are not merely patched and “filled”, but instead, reveal the inner vessel. A whole, glorious and unbroken, golden vessel.

      1. Wow praise God Helen! I just definitely feel confirmed that the Lord spoke to me (and no doubt others) through you today. Not the first time either I might add. But the first time, I was brave enough to comment. Thank you so much! God bless you, your family and your ministry!
