This is a word I released previously, but felt impressed in my spirit by the Lord to share once again.
I sense in the Spirit that there is an acceleration taking place. For some the momentum of all God has placed in you for His glory and the furtherance of His kingdom is quickly approaching. For many of you there are dreams on the inside of you.
Even promises from God that have lied dormant, but only for a season. Now is the time of birthing! That which the Spirit of God has supernaturally conceived within you will soon be manifest in the natural!
For many of you this time of carrying what God has placed in you has been some of the most difficult and trying times of your lives. There have been many wilderness seasons. There have been seasons in the night. There have been many times of despair where you have longed even for just a glimmer of God’s hope.
But I believe the Lord would have you know is that all you have endured through, persevered through, and battled through was to PREPARE you to receive that which He has PROMISED to you. God in His faithfulness does not place us into POSITIONS without first doing the necessary and preparatory work in our lives. What you have been experiencing is spiritual labor pains! Pains that are unwanted yet necessary to give birth to that which God has placed on the inside of you. The pain will give way to joy as the Lord brings to pass that which He has spoken over your life.
And then for some of you it may seem as if nothing is happening. The Lord has spoken many things over your life prophetically but it may seem as if nothing is happening. Let me tell you that it may seem that way in the natural but God will supernaturally bring to birth His words over your lives. It may seem that the exact opposite of what God said is happening. It is then we must take a hold of what God has said by FAITH and carry His promises close until they are birthed by God.
Moses knew He was to be a deliverer for the nation of Israel. The only problem was He didn’t understand the timing and seasons of God. After trying to make it happen in the natural He was thrust into the desert for 40 years where He would CARRY the promise of God until the burning bush where God called Moses out to begin to BIRTH that promise. And when the LORD saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I. (Exodus 3:4, KJV)
Joseph was given prophetic dreams from the Lord concerning his destiny and purpose. Genesis 37:5 tells us, “Now Joseph had a dream, and he told it to his brothers; and they hated him even more.” Joseph CARRIED those promises from God through bitter betrayal, through the pit, the prison, and eventually to the PALACE where He would eventually give birth to those dreams given Him prior by the Lord.
In this season many of you have gone through the fire. You have travelled through the deep waters. You have spent time in the pit as well as the prison. You have even felt the sting of betrayal. Even those closest to you have hurt and wounded you.
But I sense the Lord say these were seasons of preparation to prepare you for your season of BIRTHING. Take heart people of God and get ready for that which God is about to do.
“Get ready, get ready, get ready, says your God.”
