Philippians 4:6 (VOICE)
Don’t be anxious about things; instead, pray. Pray about everything.
Trust in My timing–be anxious for nothing, not even for the fulfillment of My promise to you. Be anxious for nothing, yet stand in expectation. Expect Me to keep My promise to you, but do not try to “bring it to pass” in your own strength and timing. Follow My lead and pray through the truth of My Words to you. Hold on tight to every word you’ve heard Me speak. Rehearse My words and keep them close to your heart. As you seek, I speak. As I speak, ask Me, “what is for now, and what is for later.” Not everything I speak is for this moment–however, I speak of My promises to keep you encouraged–it is to come.
Hebrews 10:23 (TLV)
Let us hold fast the unwavering confession of hope, for He who promised is faithful.
When you feel like forgetting about it, or burying My promise to you, I speak at the right moment. My words come to reignite your passion for that specific promise. I do not “play” with your feelings, nor with your emotions, beloved. My Words come to reignite your passion for the promise to cause you to wait with EXPECTATION and JOY! That’s why I continue to blow My truth in your direction. My truth is a reminder that you will receive ALL I have promised you. I remain true to My promise. It belongs to you. You DID and you DO hear Me. Beloved, My timing is impeccable. When it’s time, you will see, as you stand appreciative in wide-eyed wonder with your heart full of gratitude. Gratitude for the fulfillment, but also gratitude for the wait. You will see why you had to wait and you will come to appreciate My timing. It will cause you to wait with expectation for other things that I’ve promised. Oh yes, it’s that great, its even greater than you perceive.
For ye have need of patience…
Allow My words to encourage you as you wait–patiently. When you do not see fruit from all of your efforts, only wasted time, you find yourself discouraged. Beloved, wait on Me, you cannot do anything within your own strength. Instead, choose to walk in this truth, you are another day closer to the unveiling of My promise. Refuse to take on the ideals of man, do not make claims on anything I have not told you to claim–that is not how faith is designed. Faith speaks according to what I have spoken. Faith does not speak on its own accord. Faith hears My Words and partners with power (Holy Spirit) to see the manifestation of My words. When you run ahead of Me and place your timing on the promise, the result is discouragement. Remember, I do not move according to your timeline. Trust in Me–promises spoken from Me to you, they WILL be fulfilled.
Isaiah 55:9, 11 (VOICE)
9 My thoughts and My ways are above and beyond you,
just as heaven is far from your reach here on earth.
11 So it is when I declare something.
My word will go out and not return to Me empty,
But it will do what I wanted;
it will accomplish what I determined.
Be anxious for nothing. Everything has its proper time. Trust in Me. Trust My timing. You are not behind. No more striving, only thriving!
Ecclesiastes 3:11a (TLV) He has made everything beautiful in its time
