We are right on the precipice of God pouring out His glory in ways we have never seen before. This is your season of suddenly!
On a recent group Zoom call – I felt led to break off the spirit of delay. A spirit of delay tries to slow down God’s plan for your life. It will cause roadblocks, hindrances, and confusion to keep you from accomplishing all God has for you.
Testimony from Zoom Call
M.P. was on the Zoom call and I received her testimony the next morning:
I also wanted to tell you a suddenly. I have been moving in art and crafts which was delayed while I was sick, however, I have been diligently moving in learning and creating. We have experienced many delays and hindrances as I have attempted to use some of this as ministry and blessings. Anyway, I have (removed product name to keep anonymous) to glorify God as gifts to folks. This morning, I saw where I finally, not only made a sale, but sold out to one person, 18 items and they are going to California! I pray over anything I sell and send a personal note or scripture! I see this as a sign of answer to breaking off delay and I wanted you both to know. The time stamp on the sale was 10:00 pm Eastern Standard Time!
God knows the number of hairs on your head and He wants you to receive the miracle you need more than you want it.
When you study the life of Jesus – you quickly realize He lived in the realm of the immediate. Jesus spoke to Lazarus and he was instantly raised from the dead. Jesus told the disciples to cast their net on the other side of the boat and immediately the nets were filled with fish.
Live in the Realm of the Immediate
The pruning season you have been in is to prepare you to live more like Jesus – including seeing immediate results as you follow the Holy Spirit.
I have declared the former things from the beginning; and they went forth from My mouth, and I announced them. Suddenly I did them, and they came to pass.Isaiah 48:3
God wants to take you from hoping your promises will one day come to pass to seeing sudden manifestation.
Right now in the name of Jesus, I break off every spirit of delay trying to hinder you from walking into all God has for you. Together, we agree this is your season of suddenly and turnaround.
Time of Great Harvest
As you study the life of Jesus you quickly notice He was always focused on other people. He wasn’t concerned about His own circumstances but looking to meet needs in His path.
You are anointed to have an impact on people and situations around you.
We are entering a time of great outpouring to the Body of Christ so we can get our eyes off ourselves and look at the world around us.
After this the Lord appointed seventy others, and sent them two by two ahead of Him into every city and place where He Himself was about to come. He said to them, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Pray therefore the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.Luke 10:1-2
Ask God to open your eyes to people in your life who are ready to hear the Gospel.
Get Ready for Resistance
Some guys showed up at a meeting John and I were hosting for the purpose of mocking the meeting and God. We have had plenty of experiences where people voice opinions about our beliefs or us personally but I can’t remember a time when someone so brazenly showed up to be a disruption.
You might have heard a saying similar to, “the greater the darkness in the world, the brighter your light shines”. Just because your light is shining, doesn’t mean you don’t experience persecution.
If you are reproached because of the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. On their part He is blasphemed, but on your part He is glorified.1 Peter 4:14
Pray for God to open the eyes of those who would come against your faith and boldness to stand no matter what is coming against you.
Called to Give
God loved the whole world so He gave. The story of the Samaritan is a great example of giving without any expectation for return.
Is there a way you can sow kindness to someone who has been helping you grow in love?
But a Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was. And when he saw him, he had compassion on him, and went to him and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine. Then he set him on his own donkey and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. The next day when he departed, he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper and said to him, ‘Take care of him. I will repay you whatever else you spend when I return.’Luke 10:33-35
Evaluate how you can sow your time, energy, effort or resources in a new way.
Amazing Outpouring of God’s Glory
Can you imagine a worship service where the person next to you starts screaming because their prosthetic leg turned into a leg of flesh?
You are called to walk in the miraculous power Jesus did.
Many kings and prophets of old longed to see these days of miracles that you’ve been favored to see. They would have given everything to hear the revelation you’ve been favored to hear. Yet they didn’t get to see as much as a glimpse or hear even a whisper.Luke 10:24
Begin praying for more hunger to see God move miraculously.
Manifestations are Secondary
You have been given authority to use the power found in the name of Jesus but more importantly you get to personally know Him!
As more miracles are poured out, don’t lose the most important thing – personal intimacy with God.
Look, I give you authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy. And nothing shall by any means hurt you. Nevertheless do not rejoice that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice that your names are written in heaven.Luke 10:19-20
Make sure to set aside time daily to love on Jesus.
Don’t Get Distracted
We can all fall into the trap of working for God. Don’t let the excitement of the season we are living in keep you from spending time sitting at Jesus’ feet.
Let’s be a people who set our focus on Jesus, live in God’s presence and walk His miraculous power!
