As we begin the second half of 2019, the pace is going to shift and pick up. Many of you have been experiencing a lull the first half of the year. In that waiting time the Lord has been enlarging your capacity to carry what you're going to begin to manifest the second half of this year. For things to manifest in the natural, it must first be birthed in the spirit. Each prophetic word is like a seed the Lord puts in our spirits. The seed has to grow and mature, so it doesn't die prematurely. Each prophetic word released has an assignment. Isaiah 55:8-11 (MSG) declares, “I don’t think the way you think. The way you work isn’t the way I work. For as the sky soars high above earth, so the way I work surpasses the way you work, and the way I think is beyond the way you think.Just as rain and snow descend from the skies and don’t go back until they’ve watered the earth, Doing their work of making things grow and blossom, producing seed for farmers and food for the hungry, So will the words that come out of my mouth not come back empty-handed. They’ll do the work I sent them to do, they’ll complete the assignment I gave them." What you've been experiencing these past few months is the birthing pangs of these prophetic words. For many of you, the pressure you've been feeling is the pressure of the "baby" that has dropped into position to come forth. The head is crowning in the spirit.
Many are pregnant with promise, but prophetic words just don't happen. We have to partner and co labor with Holy Spirit to see the manifestation of His promises in our lives. The Holy Spirit is your midwife. Romans 8:26-27 (MSG) says, "Meanwhile, the moment we get tired in the waiting, God’s Spirit is right alongside helping us along. If we don’t know how or what to pray, it doesn’t matter. He does our praying in and for us, making prayer out of our wordless sighs, our aching groans. He knows us far better than we know ourselves, knows our pregnant condition, and keeps us present before God." Don't give up now, you've come too far. There is grace and help to birth what the Lord has been growing and developing in you.
Many of you feel like Mary, and can't believe what you're carrying. When the angel of the Lord came to Mary in Luke 1, she had a hard time wrapping her head around what Gabriel just told her. Gabriel told her she would carry and birth Jesus. She would be the mother of God Imagine hearing that. She asked Gabriel how can this be? He told her not to fear and worry, and that, "Not one promise from God is empty of power, for nothing is impossible with God" (Luke 1:37 TPT)! Some of you feel like Mary, have been asking the Lord how can I birth what you spoke over me. As the angel told Mary, I encourage you today there is power in the promise the Lord has given you. Mary may not have understood how it was all going to work out, but she came into agreement with the promise. Mary told Gabriel, "Then Mary responded, saying, “This is amazing! I will be a mother for the Lord![ad] As his servant, I accept whatever he has for me. May everything you have told me come to pass" (Luke 1:38 TPT). Mary accepted the promise and partnered her faith with the word to activate it. Some of you have come out of agreement with what God has spoken over you. It's time to come back into agreement with the word over your life, Partner your faith with each promise, and watch them become activated in your life again. It's not too late. As Gabriel told Mary, "There's nothing impossible with God."
Position yourself as we enter the second half of this really. The pace is shifting and picking up. Jump into July, and get ready to go full speed ahead. Door are opening, opportunities are coming, promotion is being released. The new is now!
