Beloved, have you been frustrated because God is not doing what you dreamed He would do–and it seems like He never will?
If so, today's prophetic word is for you.
The Lord says to you today:
“I am wiping things away so you can see clearly.
For too long, you have been seeing things through the lens of your emotions. Your tears have dictated how you feel. However, it is time for that to change.
I want you to see clearly through the lens of My Word. You have hidden My Word in your heart; now it is time to work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
This life is a faith journey. It is a journey on which you must step out on nothing but My voice, but My voice is enough. And as you step out, following My voice, you have to practice reminding yourself of what I said to you:
- When the enemy tempts you to doubt, you have to believe what I said and remind yourself of what I said.
- When circumstances look difficult, you have to believe that I am who I say I am and that I will do what I say I will do.
- When sobering events threaten to steal your joy away, you have to look to Me and choose to believe Me, regardless of what you hear from others or see in the world around you. You have to remember that I am able, and that it is not My will that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
So now, I am wiping things away so you can see clearly:
- I am removing things you depended on that were not My will for you to depend on.
- I am allowing people to be separated from you who did not really have your best in mind after all.
- I am allowing you to see that you can still love from a distance; you do not have to be close to someone to love them in Me.
- I am removing your belief that you need certain things to happen on the outside in order to be happy.
My beloved child, I have more in mind for you than you can imagine. And I will get it to you, in time.
But there are things that need to happen in order for you to be able to sustain what I would have you do. Your season is now for what I am allowing you to do now, but there are certain doors I have not yet opened to you. I will open them; be patient! But these things are for a future time.
Remember that, in the Spirit, everything looks like it is now.
This is because I have shown you things so clearly that they have become real to you. I have hidden eternity in your heart, together with all my plans for you between now and My eternity in Heaven. There are things you do not yet know, but even those things are already a seed in your heart, and you can feel them.
O My beloved, I know that the seeds of eternity in your heart are difficult to carry.
Anything eternal is a weighty matter. The things I have called you to do are weighty, important things. Even your dreams that you think are not very important are weighty and important to me, and although your mind dismisses the weight of these things, your spirit knows otherwise. You labor and groan in travail for these things.
But My love, I have not forgotten you.
I have hidden you and engraved you in the palm of My hand. You are forever before Me; Your frame is not a secret to Me; I know the things for which I have created you. I know the mighty works I have in mind for you.
You are hungry for these mighty works, and you should be. Yet, at the same time, I also need you to be patient for My coming. I need you to be patient for Me to open doors for you that no man can shut, and that no man could ever have opened.
I am with you and I will do it,” says the Lord.
He continued: “I go before you to consume your adversaries. Do you not think that I can and will do such simple things as bringing you into My plans for your life? But there is a time and there is a season for everything, and you would regret it later if I allowed you to get outside of My timing and My season.
Opportunities are being presented to you right now to invest in the things that really matter: things that have far more eternal significance than a mere professional opportunity or the status of man. I need you to pay attention to these things; to honor them and to love the ones I have put in front of you.
The season for these things is not forever, but you would regret it the rest of your life if you missed out on the things I have NOW placed before you. I do not want you to carry regret like that.
I see the desires that burn in your soul.
Over the next few years, contend for these desires as if they were going to happen tomorrow. This birthing time of prayer and fasting is not for nothing; I tell you, it is not in vain! I see who you are and who I have made you to be. Do not worry; I have not forgotten!
But I have your best interests in mind, and you cannot always see the end from the beginning. I am setting you up right now for a lifetime of favor, honor, and blessing, in which your children of all ages and stages will rise up and say you are blessed.
I know it looks like I have forgotten you, but I have not.
I swear to you by Myself: I have not overlooked you. I know where you are and where you want to be, in every area. I see the dreams that are impossible for you, and I know what you are capable of, for I have made you. I have made you, My child, to be both My child and My co-laborer, and I have not forgotten you.
Be patient. I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me.
Focus on what is in front of you today. Be still, and know that I am God. Your times are in My hands, and I can be trusted with them.
Time is your friend. Never forget it.
Your loving Abba Father.”
Thank You, Abba Father.
Respond with me to this word today by praying this short prayer:
“Abba Father, in Jesus' name, I thank You for this word. I confess that I have been impatient; that I have been too eager to move on from where I am now; and that I have not valued what You are doing in my life right now. I repent. Please forgive me.
Father, please change my heart and help me to love what You are doing in my life right now. Keep me focused on this instant; on hearing Your voice for the now. Help me not to miss out on anything You have for me to do in THIS season, and in Your timing, bring me into all the next things when the time is right.
Thank You, Abba Father. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.”
