I have found that the time in between the release of a prophetic word and its fruition can be quite trying; especially if you do not understand the prophetic process of a word released. We have to learn to understand that released words, like a seed in the ground, go through a process of incubation, gestation, and maturity before manifesting in your life.
Prophetic words are seeds give them time to grow. Some seeds (words) take longer than others do. Do not be in a hurry to see the word fulfilled, let the process take its course: because while that seed grows you are also being enlarged in order for you to have the capacity to carry.
Do not be in a hurry to see the word released manifest in your life. Often times, if you are in such a hurry you can miss out the growth patterns that are also activated in your life. Do not try to make the word manifest all by yourself: you must realize that you are not the author of all things.
When the Father releases a word, he knows when it must manifest in your life and he knows how it must come to completion in you. He knows the current condition of your heart and what must be changed (in you) in order for you to function according to the word released.
Waiting is not easy, but it truly is worth it! The word tells us in Isaiah 40:31 Amplified Bible (AMP),
But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him, will gain new strength and renew their power; They will lift up their wings [and rise up close to God] like eagles [rising toward the sun]; They will run and not become weary, They will walk and not grow tired.”
Yes, I know that you are in a hurry for the prophecy to be fulfilled but be patient because you also have to go through your own growth process in order for you to receive the full manifestation of that word.
Look at the time that the Prophets announced the birth of Jesus, how many dispensations were they before Jesus was actually born?
Even after his birth, how many years before he began his ministry?
When the time for fruition has come, nothing can stand in the way of manifestation: because what God has declared over your life shall be!!
When Jesus was born, Herod tried to annihilate him, but it was to no avail. Abraham had been told that his descendants would go into slavery and they would be delivered. But how long did it actually take for that to take place? When Moses was introduced to the scene?
At one point, he seemed an unlikely candidate: Moses had grown up in the house of Pharaoh and later killed an Egyptian and fled.
what God has ordained, he will maintain”.
Do not lose hope, you must believe that in the time of fruition, that word will be manifest in your life!
Whilst you wait, take time to thank God for the manifestation of the word and the process that he is taking you through (for the perfecting of your faith walk). For we know that his plans for us are to prosper you and not to harm to you, so whichever way that word will manifest for your good!
