For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us. 2 Corinthians 1:20
Promises, promises, promises! I hear it but I don’t see it. Ever feel like that? You feel like you’re slipping into an abyss of broken promises. Nothing good seems to happen to you through no fault of your own. You’ve been faithful, you’ve stood unwavering while the black storms hammered you over and over again. You’re a train wreck! When will help come, you ask?
I’m reminded once more of Elijah and the long drought, when he prayed for rain. He didn’t give up when he saw nothing once. Twice. Six times! Ok, one more time….tiny little cloud. Most of us would have said, ‘STILL NOTHING!’ Why report a cloud that small when you need a kazillion more with it!
I Kings 18:45 MSG, “Things happened fast. The sky grew black with wind-driven clouds, and then a huge cloudburst of rain, with Ahab hightailing it in his chariot for Jezreel.” Oh my golly gee, did you see that? Things happened fast!
That’s what’s been in my spirit so, so strong. It’s gonna happen so fast. The Spirit of the Lord spoke to me a while ago, that when things began to happen, it would happen so fast it would take my breath away. I became breathlessly excited just thinking of it.
So do I patiently wait for it, or do I give up on the promises of rain? I mean, really! How long should I have to wait, anyway! 22 years ago sitting in a friends house after prayer, I had a vision. I saw an overhead window with a hand on the latch and the words, “I’m getting ready to open a window over your life to bless you. Get ready for it!” 15 years ago after Saturday night prayer again I saw the same window, the hand had turned the latch and I saw the window bulging. The word then was, “Get ready, it’s gonna bury you alive! You won’t be able to run fast enough because my blessings will chase after you!”
I don’t know what your promise is, but I do know the promise keeper! I don’t care how long I have to wait to see the manifestation of the promise, but I’ll just continue having faith in God and watch the sky be black with the abundance of rain. After all, faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not yet seen. Hebrews 11:1
Father thank You for the reminder today that You remain faithful to keep promises that You’ve made. I will be thankful before You because that is where my breakthrough comes from. My words will create pathways for my answers. I will continue to agree with You, in Jesus mighty name, amen.
