Delay is not denial:
“…and the LORD answered me, and said, write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry. Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith” Habakkuk 2:2-4.
Delay is not denial, for all things have been working for your good (Romans 8:28)! Yes God is preparing us for greater! There is such an excitement in the spiritual atmosphere and God is speaking through his servants! Your blessings have been delayed, but have not been denied! You have been proven “qualified to receive the blessings” by the almighty God! Therefore God is releasing and positioning us for his promotions, blessings and eternal greatness (Psalm 75: 6-7)! These are blessings which will establish kingdom building for the harvest! These are blessings not for a few weeks, a month or a year. But for eternal provision and there is nothing or nobody to stop God’s hand from moving. God is going to bless right in the midst of your enemies (Psalm 23:5). God has not forgotten about the prayers nor his promises to his children. Some of these promises he gave through visions and dreams even years ago, and they are being manifested and will be manifested into the lives of his people (Genesis 37:5).
Arise and shine for thy light has come right in the midst of great darkness and famine (Isaiah 60:1)! Even though there is a famine in the land, God’s chosen will eat the good of the land (Isaiah 1:19)! He is aligning his true and faithful ones, those who have been earnestly seeking him with their whole hearts. This not saying that we have been perfect, but we have been found faithful to the Lord and that we desire the things of God and for Him to be Lord of our lives! We have been unmovable and steadfastly walking according to his word and will (1 Corinthians 15:58)! So right now, we are being entrusted with the rich treasures of heaven and the secret and hidden treasures of the earth (Isaiah 45:3, Haggai 2:8)!
We are his royal jewels and others will know that only god could have provided this blessing! (1 Peter 2:9, Malachi 3:16-17) These blessings from God will be so great that we will be overjoyed to forgive even those who tried to hinder and stop us! Just as Joseph we will also declare that “I am in the place of God” (Genesis 50:19).
So, continue to press on in the Lord and in the word and the will of God. Heaven is asking today. Who is on the Lord’s side? The angels are ready to deliver because our prayers have been answered and God’s promises to us are YES and AMEN! His word will not return to Him void (2 Peter 3: 1-9, Isaiah 55:11)!
Get ready for God has positioned and aligned you for your eternal blessings and greatness!
“Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus” Philippians 3: 12-14.
