Dear Presence seekers,
If you are in transition right now, the Lord gave me 3 encouraging, prophetic words for you. I pray they will bless you!
1. The enemy has covered up your blessing with a lot of uncertainty …
… so much so that you feel like you have lost your hope. But, the Lord says: “Ask Me to fill up your hope bucket.” It is hope that keeps you pliable and maneuverable. It is hope that helps you move forward in your life. And it is hope that helps you to receive more from the Lord.
Papa God wants to load you with His benefits. However, He responds to faith. So …
Do a faith check along with your hope check.
Is your faith preparing you to receive from the Lord? Or, is your mind set on the uncertainty and instability the enemy is throwing at you?
Remember that faith is a choice. We choose to say, “My hope is in You, O God, the God of my salvation.” When you choose to walk in faith, you will find the victory much earlier, and your hope bucket will be filled with blessings.
2. The Lord will be cementing some things concerning you over the next two weeks.
Although you have been tempted to waver, the Lord has been continuously working on your behalf. (I specifically heard Holy Spirit emphasize the word “continuously.”) He has been cooking up just the right combination of ingredients to lay the foundation of the next stage of your life.
The ingredients are currently swirling around. They feel disconnected to you right now, but they will not always be that way. As a matter of fact, Papa is getting ready to pour out the mixture of blessings you have been waiting for.
Is your ground ready?
In order for the Lord to pour out His prize concoction of blessings–the blessings that will empower you to build your house–your ground must be ready. This means that you must have everything prepared that He has already given you, because those things will be the container for your blessings.
Without a proper vessel that is prepared and positioned to contain your foundation, the blessings the Lord has for you will not support the house He wants to build for you going forward.
You also need to persevere.
In these next two weeks, you will be tempted to give up. However, it is essential that you persevere. Jesus is in Heaven interceding for you … and He is petitioning our Father for you to persevere!
So hang in there! Hang in there! Hang in there! Your foundational blessings are on their way to you right now. Just prepare your ground and pray it in!
3. If things haven't been moving for you, move them.
When an intolerable situation doesn't change despite much prayer on your part, it is usually because Father God is waiting for you to make a hard decision or obey Him in some area. The very thing that you've been hesitating to do is usually the key to your breakthrough.
So if things aren't moving for you, move them!
Remember the words of Jesus:
And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force” (Matthew 11:12).
Jesus said that the violent take the Kingdom by force. Throughout the ages, people who have done the most for God have refused to be stopped. Smith Wigglesworth, for example, was known for saying, “If the Spirit's not moving, I'll move Him!”
So what have you been waiting on God to do? Consider doing it yourself.
If you have peace about doing so–even if you have to move away from your comfort zone–look at what needs to be done and decide to move forward with it.
Stop waiting for two trumpet blasts from the heavens, an angel appearance, and a sign in the weather patterns. Just step out in faith, presenting everything to the Lord and covering everything in prayer, knowing that God is a big enough God to protect you and stop you if you are about to do anything that would be bad for you.
You may have been waiting for God, but God's waiting for you.
Beloved, if you're in transition, our Lord Jesus sees right where you are – and He's going to be with you all the way.
Persevere. Let Him fill you up with hope. Do a faith check. And move forward in faith. Jesus will meet you and help you all the way.
