WHAT DO TO WHEN YOU DO NOT RECEIVE CONFIRMATION WHEN YOU PROPHESY

 

When you have given a person a Word and there is no confirmation, this can really shake your faith in hearing the Lord, if you are used to experiencing 2-way relationship when you are giving Words.

 

The more mature a person becomes in being sent with Words, they learn how to fly only by being carried by the Holy Spirit, and leaning on the Lord for confirmation and validation.  What once was a 2 way reciprocation between people becomes a 2 way relationship with the Lord.  It is the Lordís job to establish His gifts in His people and He will bring confirmations and validations in the most amazing places.  What is important at that level of faith is not to look to a person for confirmation, but to the Lord.

 

2 Thess 2:16-17 NKJV

Now may our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and our God and Father, who has loved us and given us everlasting consolation and good hope by grace, comfort your hearts and establish you in every good word and work.

 

 

1. ASK THE LORD TO ESTABLISH YOUR FAITH

Ask the Lord to fortify and increase your faith to stand.  Ask Him to complete the good work He has started in you.  Expect Him to answer that prayer and begin to move in your life to increase your faith.

 

Heb 12:2

Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith.

 

2.  RESIST CONDEMNATION

If you are being bothered by not receiving a confirmation, remember that Jesus does not condemn us.  Take the condemnation you feel back to Him and ask Him for wisdom as to why you are feeling this.  Learn to rebuke the condemnation and not take this personally. 

 

Bind demonic spirits of condemnation, fear and insecurity, doubt, etc over yourself. 

 

3.  LOOSE THE PERSON TO RECEIVE

You may be feeling a spirit of judgment coming from the person who did not receive the Word.  There can be a demonic boomerang affect when we give a Word and it is either not received because of doubt, fear, or being judged.  Bind the spirit of doubt and hindrances in the other person that is keeping them from receiving the Word.  Loose them to receive and pray for their heart and faith.

 

4.  LEARN TO STAND IN FAITH

Learn to stand and abide in faith.  This is like remaining in an upright position and being employed to stand in position like a bodyguard.  It is firm, resolute, not bending, doubting, wavering, or fearing. 

 

Your ability to stand on the Word of God is standing in the gap for another person to be able to receive that Word.  If you are doubting your Word was accurate, then it opens a door for the other person to waver and doubt too. 

 

James 1:6-8 NKJV

But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. 7 For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; 8 he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.

 

5.  Do not give a Word unless you are sure

Prophesy according to your level of faith.  If your faith is not strong, then prophesy the Word of God via scripture.  Trust that the Holy Spirit will draw your mind to the right scriptures.

 

Rom 12:6-7 NKJV

Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, let us prophesy in proportion to our faith;

 

You are the ambassador of that Word and need to keep that Word entrusted into Godís care to fulfill it and confirm it.  Ask Him to confirm His Word with signs following.

 

Mark 16:20 NKJV

And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word through the accompanying signs. Amen.

 

6.  LEAVE A BLESSING

After you have prayed over yourself and them and you are standing in faith, remember that when we give our blessing to someone, if it is not deserved it will return to us. Expect to be blessed by having given a blessing.

 

Matt 10:12-14  NKJV

And when you go into a household, greet it.  If the household is worthy, let your peace come upon it. But if it is not worthy, let your peace return to you.

 

Prov 11:25

The generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed.

 

7.  BE BOLD AND ASK

If you feel that a lack of confirmation is truly shaking your faith and this has become a stumbling block to you, then ADVANCE and take your ground.  How?  Be bold and ask the person if what you shared was quickened to them.  It doesnt have to be at the time of the Word, it can be a followup at a later time.
