This is the first truth you need to know.

It is the hook upon which all the Heavenly wisdom and revelation you need can be laid upon.

If you have been praying and seeking God for answers; if you have been grieved by the status quo, or by the condition of others. If you want guidance and wisdom:

Above all and before all, grasp this one truth. This is how Heaven knows you. This is how the Father sees you…

How God Sees You

In the book of Daniel, the prophet is crying out to God for a breakthrough. His home city of Jerusalem and the state of his nation weigh heavily on his heart.

Daniel has already experienced powerful prophetic visions and encounters. But still, the insight and answers he wants are beyond him.

Suddenly, the angel Gabriel appears.

He is sent by God in answer to Daniel’s prayers. And he has one thing to say to Daniel before anything else.

It is a truth God wants the prophet to understand.

  • And it is a designation the angel uses, not once, but three times. [1]

“Man greatly beloved”.

You are Valued

“O Daniel…At the beginning of your supplications the command went out, and I have come to tell you, for you are greatly beloved (Dan 9:23a, NKJV)

The Hebrew word translated ‘greatly beloved’, chemdah (Strongs H 2532) means that which is desirable, pleasant and precious. It is used of precious jewels.

As you seek God for wisdom and for answers to prayer, stand before Him as one who knows your worth to God.

You are desired.
You are known.

You are His son, His daughter, greatly loved.


This Truth Heals Your Heart

Perhaps you have been struggling in some area.

Let this word breathe healing into your heart today. For it holds true, regardless of what you’ve done, or what has been done to you.

In your worst condition, God placed this value upon you: You are worth the sacrifice of His Son Jesus.

“For God so loved”  [2]

This is how you are known in Heaven:


This Word Gives You Strength

A hook may be hidden from view, but its strength will determine its capacity to bear weight.

And this truth is the hook upon which all the Heavenly wisdom and revelation you need can be laid upon.

“…he said, “O man greatly beloved, fear not! Peace be to you; be strong, yes, be strong!” (Dan 10:18, NKJV)

It is the third time Gabriel calls Daniel “man greatly beloved.” His words and touch impart strength. They dispel fear.

Do you need strength to rise?
Do you need capacity to bear the weight of all God has called you to do?


A Truth That is a Heavenly ‘Hook’

A hook is powerful.

It can be used to capture, to secure, to join or to hang an object upon. Great paintings—masterpieces—can be displayed using hooks.

Receive this one word before all.

This is the “hook”—the truth that will enable you to fully receive all your Father has for you.

As it did for Daniel, this message heralds the answer to your prayers.

And he said to me, “O Daniel, man greatly beloved, understand the words that I speak to you, and stand upright, for I have now been sent to you.” (Dan 10:10b-11, NKJV)

Today you are seeking God for wisdom, interceding, looking for answers.
You want to see His power released, His Spirit move.

This is who you are.


Post Dedication

Today’s message is, I believe, a word from the heart of the Father to all who read it.

But I would particularly like to dedicate this post to my husband Malcolm (pictured here), who has his 60th birthday today.

Beloved to the Father, and to me, and to many. You are His masterpiece.

Deeper: A Journey of Spiritual Renewal

At the heart of your Christian life and prophetic ministry is your intimate relationship with God and a vital connection to His Word.

In this eBook I share my personal journey from burnout and spiritual exhaustion to a lifestyle of encountering God—the pathway that launched me into prophetic ministry.
Today I have added a new chapter, with stories of my recent encounters with God.

I encourage you to take time with God, and simply ask the question, ‘Lord, how do you want to reveal yourself to me?’

‘Deeper: 6 Steps to Greater Intimacy with God and His Word’ contains many practical tips to help you discover the relationship with God and the Bible that you are uniquely designed for. Together with the accompanying workbook, ‘Deeper’ takes you on a journey of personal renewal.

  3. This is such a timely and targeted message for me right now. I need the strength to rise! Your ministry always lifts and strenghthens me but this is the third time I’ve read this and I have really needed to hear it each time. It means a lot to me when Father speaks to me with this message this way because when I was born I had no name. My birth certificate said “No Name”. My parents simply had not thought of a name for me at that time. About a month after I was born a friend of my grandmothers that she use to go to church with came to visit her from far away. She and her husband were full of faith and she was close to the Lord and suggested that my name should be David. Everyone instantly came into agreement and realized that was what my name should be and they went and changed my birth certificate. When I got saved at the age of seventeen, the Lord revealed this story to me through my mother who had just never thought to tell me. She was going through some things of hers from her wedding and saw a picture of the woman who named me and said to me, “this is the woman who named you”. The Lord revealed to me that He is the oned who named me and He called me regardless of mans will and named me “beloved” so I would always know how much he loves and values me. It now means a lot more to me because I know He named me. Of course I know it applies to everyone of us, but the father knew I needed to hear it over and over throughout my life.
    Thank you Father for blessing this ministry. You are truly a treasure from Heaven.

  4. Thanks Helen for your bold and powerful prophetic insights. I have been reading your messages for quite some time but this one got to my heart straight away as I am carrying a burden for a wayward and suicidal son. Bless you and your calling.
