To those who feel looked down upon, who look down on themselves, or have been looking down on others- don't look down, look up! There are some now who have had their authority questioned, are questioning their own authority, or are questioning the authority of someone God has brought alongside them.
““Tell us by what authority you are doing these things,” they said. “Who gave you this authority?””
Luke 20:2 NIV
The Lord wants to remind you from where authority comes!!! We have been given authority, and this authority is bestowed by Heaven not by man. It is the Lord who promises to lift up and bring through those who look to Him, so stop looking down; look up!
“As the eyes of slaves look to the hand of their master, as the eyes of a female slave look to the hand of her mistress, so our eyes look to the Lord our God, till he shows us his mercy.”
I keep seeing rainbows and the word/name/flower "Iris". Maybe this is what you are seeing too. If so, God is reminding you of His PROMISE to finish what He has started in you. Just as the rainbow symbolizes God's promises scripturally (Iris means "rainbow"), God is giving you your sign that He will keep His promises to you. Despite what is being said to you, what you say to yourself, or what you expect from unlikely alliances, God promises the time of fulfullment is coming! Lift up your eyes to Heaven and look up!
““Yet the Israelites will be like the sand on the seashore, which cannot be measured or counted. In the place where it was said to them, ‘You are not my people,’ they will be called ‘children of the living God.’”
Hosea 1:10 NIV
