I pray that this will encourage someone.
When you receive a word or if you are unsure of whether a word spoken over you is given by the LORD or otherwise, always seek Him first for the truth, which may be established, as His Word says, by the evidence of two or three witnesses, (Matthew 18:16). Let it be known that the LORD does not contradict His own Word. Thank You, JESUS! Praise GOD!
JESUS said in John 10:14, “I AM the Good Shepherd. I know My own and My own know Me.” Know GOD for yourself, for it is a relationship between you and the LORD. The LORD says, “Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing,” John 15:4-5.
“Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or make the tree bad and its fruit bad, for the tree is known by its fruit,” Matthew 12:33.
“When He [JESUS] has brought out all His own, He goes before them, and the sheep follow Him, for they know His voice. A stranger they will not follow, but they will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers,” John 10:4-5.
I humble myself before You, O LORD. I am here, at peace, giving thanks and praising You always, O GOD, and testifying that great is Your faithfulness. In our time of need, the LORD answered us when we sought Him. In Him, we find rest, for He who watches over His Word to perform it, is faithful and brought clarity to us, gave counsel and direction.
He who calls us is unchanging. He is mindful of our every step and He did exactly that for both my husband and I, and we are in awe, just amazed, and all we did was yield to Him in obedience, wait on Him, be still and know that He is GOD. “For He who saved you and me and called us to a holy calling, not because of our works but because of His own purpose and grace, which He gave us in CHRIST JESUS before the ages began,” (2 Timothy 1:9).
I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed, and I am convinced that He is able to guard until that Day what has been entrusted to me.
I am sure of this, that He who began a good work in us will bring it to completion at the day of JESUS CHRIST. Glory to GOD! Hallelujah!, (Philippians 1:6).

“For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven and do not return there but water the earth, making it bring forth and sprout, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it,” Isaiah 55:9-11.

“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm,” Ephesians 6:10-13.

Amen,” Philippians 1:9-11.
