We get so excited when we receive a prophetic word over our lives.
We wait and wait and wait for those prophecies to come to pass.
Then several months later, when that promise has not shown up, we often give up on it.
We give up too soon! We think God’s promises will show up the next day or the following week.
The truth is that God’s promises may not show up for years. Could you wait 12, 15, or 20 years for God’s prophecy to come to pass? Would you wait that long???
We have to remember that God’s timing is not the same as ours. He does not recognize time passing the same way we do. Years may pass for us, but for God, it may only be a year’s timeframe.
Between the time that promise is spoken and the time it shows up, we have work to do.
You MUST keep that word alive. We MUST speak life into that prophetic word. We have to remind God of that promise often and show Him that we have not given up on it.
Write that prophetic word down, word for word. Write down specific things like where you were, the date, the time, who was with you, how you felt, and the things you felt.
Then, read it often, and remind God of His promise spoken through His true prophet.
The word has to come from a true prophet of God! There should be clear evidence that this prophet or prophetess has a good track record of speaking God’s will via their prophecies.
Also, remind yourself, often, that God is faithful and that His promises have to come to pass.
There are a lot of false prophets in this world. Those false prophets come to fool/trick you.
You don’t have to wait for the prophet to come to town. Go and prophecy over yourself. You know God’s word. Use it!
Lay hands on yourself and prophecy that God came to give you a more abundant life. Prophecy that God has healed your body and mind, that you are set free, that you are blessed coming in and going out, that everywhere your feet touch that you shall possess it, that God is restoring your power, that you are a descendant of Abraham and as his descendant, you have access to all the promises God spoke over Abraham.
All of this is in your bible, AND much, much, much more! Read it yourself! Remind yourself of all of God’s promises.
He wants you blessed beyond anything you can contain. He blesses you for you to, in turn, bless others.
Believe, receive, and decree these promises today!
