HEARDWatch tower. 


IMPRESSION:  I had the brief impression of a watchman peering in the distance from a watchtower.


HEARDIn time.  James. 


QUICKENED MEMORY:  The Lord brought back to memory that years ago Anna heard, “When will James be done?”  At the time we felt it was directly related to waiting upon the Lord’s promises.  I feel the Lord is saying that the watchman is peering in the distance and knowing that the fullness of James' message is coming.  In connection with her past rhema and the book of James, that message is patience.


James 1:2-5 NKJV

My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.





“And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.”  (Rom 5:3-5 KJV)


“Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.”  (Rev 3:10 KJV)


“Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.”  (James 5:7 KJV)






HEARD: When Lord? ... Not much longer. ... Amazed. Certified. What a long time in school. You mean graduation? ... All this studying. .. Prepared. Long course.


Soon. All over. Then comes mirth. Joy restored in soul. Have in spirit now. Listen. Singing songs. Rejoice soul.   When will James be done?



HEARDChoice vine.  Pruned.  Will bear much fruit.  Let patience have its perfect work.  James be done. 



HEARDAre you James?  Let James be done.

Even when you are busy, you can choose to be patient. Nobody really likes to wait around for something to happen, especially if it's something they really want to see come to pass. But God says that people who trust in Him need to wait on Him. Waiting is hard, but here's the good part. Waiting on God is not like waiting on anyone else in your life because God never fails to keep His Word! If you're asking God for something right now or hoping that He will fulfill your dreams; just keep praying and holding on. Don't give up on God; remember, He isn't on the same timetable as you, but He will answer faithfully. Let me encourage you to be patient on a daily basis.


A Prayer for Today

God, please continue to give me patience to wait on You—and thank You for the assurance that You will never fail to keep Your Word. In Jesus' Name. Amen.





Joe Gatuslao



When the idea is not right, God says, "NO".

•          No - when the idea is not the best.

•          No - when the idea is absolutely wrong.

•          No - when though it may help you, It would create problems for someone else.


When the time is not right, God says, "SLOW".

•          What a catastrophe it would be if God answered every prayer at the snap of your fingers.

•          Do you know what would happen?

•          God would become your servant, not your master.

•          Suddenly God would be working for you instead of you working for God.



When you are not right, God says,"GROW".

•          The selfish person has to grow in unselfishness.

•          The cautious person must grow in courage.

•          The timid person must grow in confidence, The dominating person must grow in sensitivity.

•          The critical person must grow in tolerance.

•          The negative person must grow in positive attitudes.

•          The pleasure-seeking person must grow in compassion for suffering people.


When everything is all right, God says,"GO".

•          Then miracles happen:

•          A hopeless alcoholic is set free.

•          A drug addict finds release.

•          A doubter becomes a child in his belief.

•          Diseased tissue responds to treatment, and healing begins.

•          The door to your dream suddenly swings open and there stands God saying, "GO!".



•          God's delays are not God's denials.

•          God's timing is perfect.

•          Patience is what we need in prayer.






Who would despise small beginnings?  I AM God of the seed.  Everything that grows comes from a seed.  I have a harvest intended for your life, if you will be willing to go through the process.


First the seed of promise is planted in the willing and yielded soil of the heart.  “Now what?” you ask. “It’s dark in here, I can’t see where I AM going.  It’s cold and isolated.  It’s damp.”  If you will have a little patience, I will shine the warmth of My Son upon you, and His warmth will warm your soul, as you break through your shell and grow roots downward.  Look up, rise up, reach up to His warmth, and suddenly you will break through the darkness and into His light.  Rejoice as He gives you eyes to see, and warms your heart with His radiant Words.  “What now?” as you view this seed of promise.  Growth, growth, and more growth as your hungry soul thirsts for living water and finds rich nutrients. 


But through it all, the elements come and you begin to feel their resistance as you reach up into the light.  The winds blow, storms rage, hot times, cold times, dry times, wet times; your soul becomes weary with the standing.  Again I say, if you will have patience in the waiting process, you will live to see the fruit of all the promises I have spoken. 


I promise you a fruitful harvest.  But it is up to you if that harvest is 30, 60 or 100 fold.  How willing are you to receive, how willing are you to stand, how willing are you to wait?  A large harvest takes time.  And time is My tool to build every fiber into a strong plant, one that is able to endure all that would come against it.  If you are willing to be patient and wait, and give Me time, I will bring you all the way into your compete inheritance. You are almost there My love!  All the way, one hundred fold.  It is up to you. 


“For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear.  But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in the sickle, because the harvest is come.  And he said, Whereunto shall we liken the kingdom of God? or with what comparison shall we compare it?  It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when it is sown in the earth, is less than all the seeds that be in the earth: But when it is sown, it groweth up, and becometh greater than all herbs, and shooteth out great branches; so that the fowls of the air may lodge under the shadow of it.”  (Mark 4:28-32)
