This is a prophetic word for you if you know Father God has promised you things that you haven't seen manifest yet.
Beloved, you know what God has promised you. You and God know, and chances are that your dream is really too precious to tell anybody else about the fullness of your dream … and too precious for anybody but you and God to understand anyway.
And you've been praying. You've been praying for your dream. You've been claiming those promises. Maybe you've even been fasting. And all of those things are great.
But you still haven't seen the results you long for. You still haven't seen the manifestation of what God promised you.
Beloved, if that's you, it's time to contend.
Sometimes praying isn't good enough. Sometimes even adding fasting to your prayer isn't even enough if you aren't contending through your prayers and fasting.
What is contending?
Contending is when you get in a birthing position, spiritually speaking, and you travail in the Spirit for the thing YOU KNOW is in God's heart to come forth.
Contending is when you become aggressive and offensive in your prayer and in your fasting. It's when day and night, and night and day, you strike God's heart with your intecession for HIS dream, which is your dream too.
Contending prayer is when you don't just pray, but you also decree a thing, in accordance with God's Word always, and you speak it out loud–and by doing so, you enforce God's governmental decree on the earth.
Contending happens WHEN YOU WILL NOT BE DENIED. Contending happens when you insist and demand that Father answer your prayers and bring forth the thing for which He has sent you to war.
Some of you are not yet walking in your promises simply for lack of contending.
So it's time. Start contending. Do it now. Birth those promises in insistent, declarative prayer that will not be denied.
