I was not going to write a prophetic decree tonight. However, the Lord is pressing it upon my heart to share some words of encouragement.
It is so close; I can taste it.
Have you ever prayed and believed God for something? I mean, for years on end, you have prayed, fasted, and believed, and now, the time of walking into the promise is closer than ever. However, although the promise is closer than it has ever been, this season is also proving to be the hardest one yet.
This season is not hard because of tests and tribulations —No— you have overcome many of those hard tests in the past. This season is the hardest because you can see the promise. Although you can see the promise, you must wait for its fulfillment.
Before, when you believed and hoped your promise, it was not sitting in front of you, looking at you in the face. Instead, it was a dream, a vision, a desire, and a Word from the Lord in which you held tightly. This time, the promise is so close that you can taste it. I mean, you are salivating and anxious because the promise is finally ‘here,’ but you cannot have it yet.
So, what do you do when your promise is sitting on the shelf in eyesight-view, but untouchable? Well, the Lord has a few words for moments, just like this.
Now, as you are waiting to receive and open your promise, it is time to prophetically stir yourself up and encourage yourself as you wait a little while longer.
Tonight, as you meditate and prophetically decree these scriptures, pay special attention to the bolded portions.
Remember, as you are waiting on the promises of the Lord, know that The Lord wants to fulfill His promises within you. Yet, above all, the Lord wants to ensure that you are complete and lacking nothing. The Lord wills that as He blesses you with His promises, that you are ready to uphold all, He is pouring into you.
So, if you are looking at your promise in the face and if it is so close that you can taste it, be of good cheer, know that it is only a matter of time until you are enjoying the fruit of your labor and the decree of God’s Word.
