Last Thursday night at our prophetic school, Jessica, shared a great message along with her personal testimony in regards to the absolutely marvelous grace of God poured out on her the last couple of years and to all who will receive it. If you would like to have a copy of this message click this link and send us your mailing info. After the teaching session and Q&A session, we normally have prophetic activation. These are always designed to stretch the students by looking and listening to the Holy Spirit for a word of personal prophecy. Standing up before the class, I had no idea what the Lord wanted me to do in regard to this. God is always faithful and has many pleasant surprises for us. I heard my cell phone buzz quietly in my pocket, but didn't pay any attention to it as I don't normally take calls when I am in the middle of a meeting. However, after it buzzed a second time and I saw that it was a call from my youngest daughter, I answered, telling her by the prompting of the Holy Spirit that we were getting ready to do prophetic activation and we would like to minister to her prophetically over the phone. This was definitely a divine appointment. I then asked the students to look to the Lord Jesus for a word for my daughter. Almost every one of the students had a powerful prophetic word or a vision for my daughter and gave it to her over my cell phone. It was really an awesome evening of ministry. This is an hour when the Lord wants to use different methods to minister to people.
Be prepared and seize the opportunity.
Love never fails. How many times do we hear that in church? Now how many of us actually understand what that means that love never fails? Simply it means this: “God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good? (Numbers 23:19). It also means this: For when God made a promise to Abraham, because He could swear by no one greater, He swore by Himself, 14 saying, “Surely blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply you.” 15 And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise. 16 For men indeed swear by the greater, and an oath for confirmation is for them an end of all dispute. 17 Thus God, determining to show more abundantly to the heirs of promise the immutability of His counsel, confirmed it by an oath, 18 that by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we might have strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the hope set before us.
Right now is a time of great breakthrough and moving forward in the things of God for the Body of Christ. But in order to get the breakthrough we so desire we must die to our flesh. This is sometimes a painful process that feels drawn out and never ending, but let me assure you God's Word is true. He does not lie and He does not forget about the things that we have asked HIm for. In fact the scripture says He delights in the details of our lives...that is as personal as He can get to delight even in the itty bitty details...that is an amazing God!
So for those of you who seem to be waiting and waiting and waiting and you feel like you're going nowhere? Trust me God is still moving and breathing and sitting on the throne. He knows your needs and He has already met them despite what it may look, sound, or feel like. Just praise Jesus! Praise the King of Kings for bringing every promise to pass and for being faithful! Feed on His faithfulness...Psalm says Trust in the Lord, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. 4 Delight yourself also in the Lord, And He shall give you the desires of your heart. So whatever you do....don't give up!!! Rejoice in the Lord today!!!
