PROPHETIC WORD – STAND & WATCH THE DELIVERANCE OF THE LORD!
As we start another week let me prophesy over you – this week you are going to enter a shift where as you adjust your sight you will leave the labor of your ability and strength and enter into the deliverance of the Lord.
I HEARD, “PAST DUE”
I heard the Lord say, “Many feel past due. They feel as if it’s too late for them. That I have passed them by and what they were believing for has left the harbor, but it’s not past due but I am right on time”
It reminded me of Lazarus. There was a four-day-long and painful moment between the death of Lazarus and the time Jesus showed up and called him out of the tomb. Martha even said to
Jesus, “Why weren’t you here?”
I know many have said the same thing in this season, “Jesus where were you?”
Many are still right now in the messy middle between death and resurrection, yet you just don’t know the resurrection is on its way.
It just feels like the death of so many things and you are left with the grief and the heartache of trusting in God and feeling left by the wayside.
But watch as Jesus arrives on the scene of your life’s biggest hour and begins to transition you out of death and into new life.
That which felt past due is actually right on time.
THE TRAUMA OF LONG-TERM BARRENNESS
That’s the phrase I heard “long-term barrenness” like someone who was pregnant but not with a baby but with barrenness.
So many have felt barren for a long time and God is shifting your womb in this season where in a moment you will go from feeling barren to ready to deliver.
You will go from empty and lost in grief to ripe and ready to reveal what God has been doing in your life behind the scenes.
It looked like it was all over for you, but this shift is the miracle-working power of God to OVERTURN the enemy’s agenda keeping you barren and making you suddenly and unexpectedly fruitful.
But you are going to have to let go. Let go of what didn’t happen. What didn’t work out and what you feel should have taken place.
“Sarah’s faith embraced God’s miracle power to conceive even though she was barren and was past the age of childbearing, for the authority of her faith rested in the One who made the promise, and she tapped into his faithfulness” – Hebrews 11:11
It’s time to embrace God’s miracle-working power and as you do you will conceive and tap into the faithfulness of God.
SHIFT TO EXPECTANT BIRTHING
I shared a word a few days ago about the Lord shifting us into delivery mode.
You can read the short word here.
We have been so focused on false labor and stillbirths that we have begun to feel jaded over whether the birthing will ever come.
But I feel that this week God wants us to shift into EXPECTANT faith that the birthing feeling is leading to tangible delivery.
We just get our eyes of awe and wonder back!
Do I bring to the moment of birth and not give delivery?” says the LORD. “Do I close up the womb when I bring to delivery?” says your God.
– Isaiah 66:9
GET BACK YOUR EAGLE EYES
It’s important this week to shift your sight from the problem and back onto Jesus. The problem has been preaching at you endlessly and trying to back you into a corner of hopelessness but this week you must shift.
It starts with surrendering your parameters, expectations, and time limits you placed around the promise you were contending for.
It starts with giving them to Him to bring to fruition.
It starts with getting back your eagle eyes and handing over the sandpit glasses you have been wearing.
You can’t stay stuck in the mud right now, but you must shift into higher faith by getting back your sight!
“But Nate I’ve seen everything crash and burn. I have lost my hope and vision and I don’t know what to do”
Double down by faith. You don’t move by feelings but by faith.
You don’t move by what you see, but by what you SEE! It’s time to ascend and get back your eagle’s eyes that see through the realm of faith.
“but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint” – Isaiah 40:31
What did God say? Lock your eyes with it again and don’t let go!
SOUL SICK TO FULLY FILLED
As I’m writing this I hear, “I am refreshing and refilling the empty”
Those who have felt empty and depleted are being filled right now.
Specifically, those who have felt soul sick and unable to shake it. Like a poison or virus that seems like it just won’t leave.
God is breaking the heaviness of the yoke that has been around you.
He is pouring into you right now and cleaning your soul with His abundance.
He is pouring water on the dry and thirsty and making rivers flow from your belly once again!
UNTANGLE FROM THE DRAMA
“Because the Sovereign LORD helps me, I will not be disgraced. Therefore have I set my face like flint, and I know I will not be put to shame”
– Isaiah 50:7
This week watch as God untangles you from the drama. The web of lies and constant words against you trying to bait you away from your path.
In the midst of contending for major promises, there has been an overt assignment of slander and mud-slinging taking place to get your eyes off the prize.
The enemy has wanted you so surrounded by the drama that you lose sight of who the real enemy is and what you are pushing in the spirit for.
But you must lose the drama.
I especially feel this for the builders and pioneers. We can’t keep looking behind us and building simultaneously. Leave them to God and keep building!
This week set your face like flint. Look to Jesus and not man and as you do you will get back your peace and the chatter will fade into the distance.
DELIVERANCE IS COMING!
When God spoke this word to my spirit I heard, “Stand and see the deliverance of the Lord!”
but then the second time I heard, “Stand and see the delivery of the Lord!”
There is both deliverance and delivery taking place right now as we shift our focus.
This week I believe we are placing the baton in the Lord’s hand as we shift our eyes onto Him – our lord of war, strong and mighty in battle.
And He will finish what He started.
So let’s get back our eyes and watch the deliverance come!
“You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the Lord will give you, Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them tomorrow, and the Lord will be with you.” – 2 Chronicles 20:17
