We are in an opportune, interesting and tumultuous time. We need to take stock of where we are and prepare to move into the new. (This is the biblical Month of Tammuz)
When Moses sent out the twelve who would spy the land, all saw the good opportunity that lay ahead, but most saw the tumultuous obstacles that lay in the path of their inheritance. I hear the Lord say, “Look at what is before you with eyes of faith and you will enter all I have designed for you. Doubt will keep you out and cause you to walk presumptuously. Remember, presumption is operating within your own strength: it is never a substitute for faith.”
We need to recognise that giants always stand at the entrance of a new opportunity and the place of promise. Giants indicate we are moving into the fullness of our inheritance.
I believe three key areas to look for are:
People who God brings into your life. Moses needed a Joshua and a Caleb. There will be a deepening of old relationships as with Moses and Joshua, and a developing of new relationship as with Joshua and Caleb. These relationships will promote and advance you into a new portion of your inheritance.
Recognise and take note of what God is doing; don’t limit yourself to what you hear politicians or the media say. God is about to release revelation that will give understanding to the events that are taking place. With this revelation we are able to move forward, pulling the prophetic promise into reality as God makes himself known. Don’t dwell on the confusion of the situation but look for the completion that will bring forth fullness.
Pay attention to the specific moments of time when promises of the past are birthed in the now. A cycle of barrenness is broken off now, and a cycle of blessing is released. Angelic messengers are bringing new assignments.
And the Lord appeared to him by the oaks of Mamre, as he sat at the door of his tent in the heat of the day. He lifted up his eyes and looked, and behold, three men were standing in front of him. When he saw them, he ran from the tent door to meet them and bowed himself to the earth and said, “O Lord, if I have found favour in your sight, do not pass by your servant. Let a little water be brought, and wash your feet, and rest yourselves under the tree, while I bring a morsel of bread, that you may refresh yourselves, and after that you may pass on – since you have come to your servant.” So they said, “Do as you have said.” And Abraham went quickly into the tent to Sarah and said, “Quick! Three seahs of fine flour! Knead it, and make cakes.” And Abraham ran to the herd and took a calf, tender and good, and gave it to a young man, who prepared it quickly. Then he took curds and milk and the calf that he had prepared, and set it before them. And he stood by them under the tree while they ate. They said to him, “Where is Sarah your wife?” And he said, “She is in the tent.” The Lord said, “I will surely return to you about this time next year, and Sarah your wife shall have a son.” And Sarah was listening at the tent door behind him.
This Scripture will impregnate you with prophetic seed guaranteeing the fulfilment of promise!
The key word this month is ‘watchful’. We need to stand on our watch tower of prayer to ‘see what the Lord will say.’
I will take my stand at my watchpost
and station myself on the tower,
and look out to see what he will say to me,
and what I will answer concerning my complaint.
The Righteous Shall Live by His Faith
And the Lord answered me:
“Write the vision;
make it plain on tablets,
so he may run who reads it.
For still the vision awaits its appointed time;
it hastens to the end – it will not lie.
If it seems slow, wait for it;
it will surely come; it will not delay.”
We are entering this time of opportunity which is causing a shift in the realm of the Spirit. Make that shift! Bring heaven to earth! Release what God has decreed in heaven onto the earth!
