For as many as are the promises of God, they all find their Yes in Him [Christ]. For this reason we also utter the Amen (so be it) to God through Him [in His Person and by His agency] to the glory of God. (2 Corinthians 1:20)
This I know, Your timing is of supreme importance and if I do not walk according to it, I miss the best You have. Many things will be missed and many things will be born before their time when I don’t wait on You….when I try to fulfill promises according to the flesh. I ask for an increase in the gift of discernment to know when to wait and when to move. In the past I have sometimes equated delay as denial and not seen it as Your protection. There are always others connected to the fulfillment of Words You have given me and my delay may be there preparation time. (Good)
Therefore, I choose to see Your timing as a place of rest and preparation…a place to develop trust and grow in anointing for the task ahead. I choose to wait on You. I will not run ahead into a mine field full of the enemies plans to destroy, maim and abort the plan You have for me and others connected with me. As I wait on you, the explosive plans of the enemy are exposed and dismantled.
Lord, I cry out to You as You have asked me to. I cry out for wisdom, understanding and revelation. I cry out for an abiding heart that hears You and walks out Your instruction accordingly. I give You my heavy load in exchange for Your light burden. My roots are growing deep to produce abundant fruit and my leaves…my countenance…my faith do not wither for I have not and will not grow weary…nor shall I faint. I will reap in due season. All things are coming in to maturity in my life, including my character and my hope. I forsake all frustration and embrace the green pasture of rest provided by the Lord. I drink from the still waters of promises given and promises kept. I rest in the original Promise Keeper even of The Mystical Order and it’s Leadership.
The rain falls from the heavens and waters the earth. As a result, things grow, mature and become fruitful. It is the same with Your Word. Every Word You have given me is full of power and ability…full of the redemptive work of the Cross and brings about the purpose for which it was sent to me. Everything You purpose for Your Word in my life shall be accomplished. Every need is and will be supplied according to the riches in glory in Christ Jesus. You called me from the very beginning…before the worlds were and are trustworthy to keep me according to all You have called me to be even to lead Your people.
Therefore, I will not grow weary in doing good…will not grow weary in following Your Word and unction of the Spirit. I will not be one who faints and I will reap in due season according to Your timing. I stand in the confidence of one who is a son of God and heir to salvation. I will be found standing on the day when my promises come into fullness and are manifest before me. I will not be late to my own party. I will not be absent for the manifestation of Your Word to me. The Lord has gone before me this day and every day after to make a way where there is no way. He has gone before me and I will follow His lead.
I do not have to demonstrate some kind of perfection based on my own self-doing, for I am already perfect in You. Knowing this and walking accordingly gives me rest and takes the pressure of the journey off me and lets it rest on Him. Every word given to me by Him is truth already manifest and is waiting for me to receive it with my own heart that my eyes might see.
Therefore, I seize the day and grab hold of all promised to me. I do not give it over to the birds of the air. The Word promised is my inheritance…my fruit…my destiny. I acknowledge the faithfulness of the Lord; thereby, I experience the fullness of strength, endurance and steadfastness it takes to not grow weary. I stand in the strength of You, Lord and receive the refreshing of the Lord…receive the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. When the Lord speaks to me, a promise given is a promise kept and there is no dispute on my behalf. I will not be one who accuses my own self and thereby vacate the seat of honour given to me. The Great Promise Keeper has drawn near to me and I to Him. I am refreshed, renewed and full of expectant hope. I remain standing. Amen
Go rejoicing and serve the Lord.
Your servant and brother,
