I received the following prophetic word by Elaine Tavolacci this morning via my subscription to her website, 

I believe it is a timely and encouraging word of confirmation, hope and mobilization to the people of God concerning the valuable treasure that is in us and as such I am re-blogging it with her permission.

Valuable Treasures In Earthen Vessels

March 6th, 2014 

Elaine Tavolacci

People will go out of their way to protect the things that they treasure. They have security systems with cameras installed on their houses and stores for protection against thieves stealing their valuables. They have smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors to protect their families against gas leaks and fires. The Holy Spirit spoke to me and said; people guard earthly possessions which are precious and valuable to them, but they don’t recognize and protect the treasure that I have placed inside of them.

The Lord says, I have placed valuable treasures inside of you that many of you have not yet identified or discovered. There are wells on the inside of you that you have not yet tapped in to. Do not allow these wells to be stagnant any longer. There are precious treasures and gifts that have been cultivated as you refreshed yourself in My presence. They have been imparted to you as you studied My word and sought out the mysteries of My kingdom. They have been conceived as you spent quality time in the secret place with Me. They have been released to you as you have continued steadfast in prayer, stood fervently in intercession and prayed in the Spirit with perseverance and determination without wavering. Stir up that which is lying dormant on the inside of you. Resurrect those gifts that are available and accessible. These are not natural treasures of silver and gold but they are treasures of revelatory gifts and mysteries. Multitudes have gone to their graves without ever discovering these priceless treasures that I have given to them. Now is the time to discover the treasure that I have placed within you.

I have not come to destroy your dreams, your plans, your purposes or your destinies but to fulfill them. Understand that your gift will make room for you. Seek Me for understanding to be able to discern what I have made available to you. Listen for My voice in the daytime and in the night seasons. I will speak to you in dreams and visions and reveal My plans and purposes to you. I am calling you to step out. This is the season for My gifts to be released. These gifts are spiritual gifts that many of you have longed for. They are priceless gifts of revelation and hidden mysteries. They are secrets and as you discern them, you will use them for My glory. Desire these gifts and discover the treasures that I have placed deep down on the inside of you, and you will see marvelous things in your life and ministry that you have not yet experienced. Do not think for a moment that you have been disqualified. My gifts and calling’s are irrevocable and My purpose will come to pass as you put aside your man made agenda’s and allow Me to show you the hidden treasures that I have placed in you says the Lord.

Proverbs 18:16 
A man’s gift makes room for him, and brings him before great men.

2 Corinthians 4:7
But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.

2 Timothy 1:14
Guard the good deposit that was entrusted to you – guard it with the help of the Holy Spirit that lives in us.

  1. Great words, Kim. I especially like the line, “I have not come to destroy your dreams, your plans, your purposes or your destinies but to fulfill them.” So many times we might feel like God is stomping all over our dreams, but if he shuts one thing down, it’s only because he has something even better in store. I’ve learned that from personal experience.

  2. Good morning David….well it’s morning in the Bahamas…:)….that line stood out to me as well and was very encouraging to read. Your comment is dead on….even in the midst of disappointment due to closed doors, we need to remember that they closed because God has something better in store and look forward to discerning and pursuing what God deems better.

  3. I hope you have a great day. I’m off to bed now actually. By the way, speaking of plans and dreams, we are moving back to the States in June. I’m looking for a job now, so if you get a moment, please pray. It would be nice if I could have a job before we got there.

  4. Thanks David….as you approach your time of relocation, I pray that the Lord will order your steps with precision, that He will go ahead of you and open the employment door that is for you, and that the transition from Korea to settling down in the States will be smooth for you and your wife. May His grace rest upon you both as you embrace His next assignment for your lives.

  5. Good morning to you too…hope you are having a great day so far…..I am happy that the word was an encouragement to you…the best is yet to come…..:)
