7/11/17 HOW TO OVERCOME THE CANKERED
PAIN OF PROPHETIC DELAY
The nature of the prophetic is to see and then announce what
is yet coming. To a prophet, what they see is always in now
time because His Word circles that person before, during and
after the fact, bringing understanding and confirmation. It
is fun to live in that world of Words!
However if a person gets stuck standing on a specific
promise and doesn’t keep advancing for more of the Lord, it
can cause a cankering of one’s heart and faith regarding the
timing of when it is fulfilled.
Proverbs 13:12 Hope deferred makes the heart sick: but
when the desire is fulfilled, it is a tree of life.
I have been living in the prophetic since 1984 and I have
learned that Solomon knew what he was talking about when he
said there is nothing new under the sun. He is raising up a
whole new generation of prophets still saying the same
things, yet waiting for the same promises, basically
reinventing the same wheel.
Ecclesiastes 1:9-11 The thing that has been, it is that
which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall
be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. 10 Is
there anything of which it may be said, See, this is new? it
has been already of old time, which was before us. 11 There
is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be
any remembrance of things that are to come with those that
shall come after.
He told me I am a prophetic intercessor standing for 3
generations to cross over into our promises at the same
time. So while I and others of my generation wait for
others to catch up to inherit what He has promised, how do
we continue to circle the same words and not lose our
As I ponder this, I ask myself is it easier to know where
God is going and understand what He is doing, or is it
easier to be blind? When I ask that, I know that the gift
of understanding is a huge comfort and it is a whole lot
better than feeling abandoned by blindness and not knowing.
So I cried out to the Lord how do I resolve this?
For 2 days I have put the pedal to the metal and been
speaking in tongues most of my waking hours. I needed a
breakthrough really bad. Yesterday I went to the grocery
store and when I drove into the parking lot I prayed,
“Lord thank You for giving me understanding. Is there a way
for me to overcome the pain of delay?”
Immediately He downloaded into me that the way we overcome
the pain of delay is to
PARTNER with Him regarding what He is doing in
the NOW, not in
the future. To me no matter how that is applied, it means
intimacy and joy in Him, being yoked with Him in purpose for
the NOW moment. He has a purpose for each and every day.
Ecclesiastes 3:1 To every thing there is a season, and a
time to every purpose under the heaven:
Matthew 6:11 Give us this day our daily bread.
Astounded at such a simple but profound resolution, I got
out of the car and a fellow came towards me wearing a Tshirt
that said, “Waiting for that perfect truth!”
I knew I had hit the perfect truth of overcoming the canker
of delay. I KNEW that was a confirmation to
partnering with Him in the
NOW. I was excited!
I did my shopping and Wayne wanted cantaloupe but I didn’t
like what I saw at Wallmart. So I decided to stop at
Albertsons on the way home.
Wallmart - Hitting a wall in the marketplace.
Cantaloupe – can’t elope, having to wait for the marriage.
Albertsons –son of Albert, name meaning noble and bright.
I am still praising Him about the idea of partnering with
Him in the moment – (ie – Lord what is Your understanding
for this moment in time and how can I partner with You about
it?) and my eye catches the headline of our local
The newspaper read: NATURAL
I am smiling about this with joy and walking out of
Albertsons, less than a minute after seeing the headline,
Natural partners…. I see a sign on their window.
The sign read, WHY NOT
God is so amazing, I love it when He talks to me like this.
I have found a true key to help me get out of the prophetic
pain of delay: Seeking Him for understanding of what He is
saying NOW, and then partnering with Him in prayer at that
moment in time. Thank You Lord for tongues and breakthrough
of truth, wisdom and understanding!!!
Proverbs 4:7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get
wisdom: and with all your getting get understanding.
PONDER: OVERCOMING DEFERRED HOPE 7/11/17
Dear hearts, I am the God of NOW. Even
My name is I AM. Yes I was, yes I will be, but I am always
NOW, I am there for you NOW. I have longed to give you
understanding and wisdom to know Me and what I AM doing in
the earth. Every time I give you understanding, it draws
you closer to Me and it comforts us both.
Always remember that in My Presence is
the fullness of joy. It is My Presence in this moment, not a
promise in the future where I want you to walk. Continue to
ask Me what I AM doing now in that moment, and seek to
partner with Me regarding such. That is the true joy of
fellowship and intimacy. It is where you belong, not wishing
for Me to come in the future, but enjoying Me in the NOW.
The more you spend time with Me in the now, the more you
will find the true secret of a prosperous soul.
What is your desire dear one? Am I not
the desire of all nations? Our deepest joy is in every now
moment in which we commune.
Proverbs 13:12 Hope deferred makes the heart sick: but
when the desire is
fulfilled, it is a tree of life.
Haggai 2:7-9 And I will shake all nations, and the
desire of all
nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory,
says the LORD of hosts. 8 The silver is mine, and the gold
is mine, says the LORD of hosts. 9 The glory of this latter
house shall be greater than of the former, says the LORD of
hosts: and in this place will I give peace, says the LORD of
