I am so thankful for you. It is encouraging to me to know that the Lord has chosen me to speak His truth into your life. What an honor and a privilege!
Our God is in the business of fulfilling what He promises. We are entering into a time of fulfillment. A time when God is consummating or bringing to pass the things He pledged, promised, and vowed.
We have entered into a time in which we are about to see more promises from His Word fulfilled than perhaps we’ve ever seen before. You could say it like this: UNPRECEDENTED!
You see, throughout history, every time God’s people have come under heavy attack by their enemy, God always retaliates with a major outpouring of His love, His goodness, and His favor. Do you remember the children of Israel when they were being oppressed by the Egyptians?
God retaliated and the Bible says that He told His people:
…I will execute judgment…And the Lord gave the people favor…and they spoiled the Egyptians (Exodus 12:12, 36).
Their time had come and their enemy couldn’t do a thing to stop them. It was their time for breakthrough. It was their time for flourishing.
God is about to do it again! He is not going to leave you in misery or pain. He’s not going to leave you oppressed, held back, or restricted.
According to the Bible, tests and trials and hardships and challenges can only last for a season.
The Apostle Peter wrote, “You have endured many trials for a little while” (1 Peter 1:6-11, NLT). The Apostle Paul said it like this, “Our present troubles won’t last very long…” (2 Corinthians 4:17, NLT).
This means that your hardship and trials cannot last forever. They are coming to an end. That’s God’s promise! The prophetic Word which we have received is that this is our YEAR OF FULFILLMENT!
I’m declaring by the Word of the Lord, the seasons are changing!
I believe, just like in Exodus, that our God is saying once again, “Enough is enough, Let My People Go” (see Exodus 9:1).
The Psalmist David wrote Psalm 102 during a time of great discouragement. He starts the chapter by talking about how bad things are. He feels overwhelmed. What he is going through seems entirely impossible. He needs answers fast…he is on the verge of giving up.
But while David is crying out to the Lord, there is a shift that takes place as God gives him a revelation. In verse 13 David boldly declares, God will arise and save His people, “for the time to favor her, yea the set time is come…” (see Psalm 102:1-13).
You might be thinking, “But when is this set time?”
Well, if we look at these verses carefully, it could be at the time when God’s people have become overwhelmed (as David had) but refused to give up — then that’s when God says once again, “Enough is enough. Let my people go!”
To say there is a set time for something means that it is in the plan, in the mind, and in the will of God. It means nothing can change that which has been set. Although you and I have had access to God’s favor since the day we made Jesus the Lord of our lives, I believe that what has come upon us now is a time of favor like no other generation has ever seen.
I’m not saying that we won’t be opposed, or that we won’t experience some adversity. We will. But when the favor of God is on our side, we’ll face adversity and overcome it just like the three Hebrew children did (see Dan. 3:19-30). They went through the flames and came out on the other side with not so much as a singed hair or the smell of smoke on their clothes.
The Apostle Paul encourages us today with these words: “Let us not be weary in well doing, for in due season we will reap, if we faint not” (Galatians 6:9).
I believe if you refuse to give up, your “due season” has come!
This is your time for God’s promises to be fulfilled! You have entered into a new season. Your specified time for flourishing is here!
Listen to God’s promise to you and me:
But the godly will flourish like palm trees and grow strong like the cedars of Lebanon. For they are transplanted to the Lord’s own house. They flourish in the courts of our God. Even in old age they will still produce fruit; they will remain vital and green (Psalm 92:12-14, NLT).
This is your time to flourish! Maybe you’re thinking, “But how can you be so sure?” Because I have the Word of the Lord on it. He told me that this is a year of fulfillment.
And according to Daniel 2:21, God changes the times and the season. That means He reserves the right to determine when it is time for things to change — not the government, not the economy, and certainly not the media!
No matter what you are going through, regardless of the pressure to quit, even if it looks impossible…hold on, don’t give up, God is about to turn things around for you. Your breakthrough is on its way.
The next time you feel like quitting, you just tighten your belt a little more, drive your stake a little deeper, and stand your ground and tell the devil, “If it’s a fight you want, it’s a fight you’re going to get.” But when the dust settles, it will be you and God who are still standing!
God is saying to you today, “Your due season to flourish has come!”
According to Ecclesiastes 3, there is a season for everything and “A time to plant and a time to harvest.” This tells me that the season of fulfillment that we have entered into is the time when we will harvest from the seeds we have sown!
If you are like me, you have planted seed and haven’t seen the complete fulfillment of the harvest yet. But if the Bible is true…and it is, if God keeps His promises…and He does, there is a harvest that is coming your way.
The Bible promises that whatever a man gives, that will he also reap! Don’t give up on the seeds you have sown. Stay in faith. Keep trusting God. Your time to flourish is here!
As I close this letter, let me just say how grateful I am that God has linked us together. Once again, I am so honored that you allow me to speak God’s truth into your life. I pray that it is encouraging and life-giving to you.
P.S. When the pressure is on and you’re facing hardships, it is easy to get discouraged. In those times, keeping your faith strong is vitally important. That is what I am here for — to encourage you and strengthen your faith. I’m praying for you and believing for God’s best in your life.
