Just for kicks, I did a word search through the Bible. Guess what? The word coincidence doesn’t come up. It’s not in the Bible. There’s no coincidence in His word or His plans. Continue reading “No Coincidences With God” »

Now that you have your list of promises, read it like it’s a letter from God. These are things He wants to do for you. Claim them as promises. Remind God that He promised. If you get a word that you brush aside, or never believe, chances are great that you never will see it fulfilled. God’s promises are true. You can trust them. But you need to give life to them by believing them and expecting them to happen. I get excited every time I read through my list. I can’t wait to see these things start to happen. They may not happen for years, but I’m still excited and I thank God all the time for what He’s promised. He’s so generous because He wants to be real in my life. And the more I believe Him for, the more He’ll do for me, in me, and through me.
When ever you get a prophetic word, write it down immediately so you don’t forget any part of it. If you can record it even better. If you do record it, transcribe it. There’s something about hearing, writing, and seeing it that helps you understand it better. Pull out the key words and phrases and list them. Then group them by subject. I date them as well. By grouping the key words together, you can see how God has repeatedly given you the same promise over time. If you’ve had several prophetic words over the years, you’ll have an astonishing list of promises that will bring a smile to your face every time you read it. Ok, so I have my list, now what?
Discipline is a good thing. When I feel down, I know to still rejoice. When I am sad or depressed, I can still be thankful. Regardless of how I feel, I know you are true. I know that your promises are the wonder of the universe. How could I ever doubt that? So I am always grateful, even when the waiting brings sadness. Smiling through tears, as my old voice teacher used to say. Yes, I am grateful. There is no hope without you. In you, there is more than hope, there is joy today. There is being sheltered under your wings. There will be no need for that in heaven. Today we need your shelter, your grace, and so much more. Draw me into the more. We know so little. Show me a glimpse of the more. I have no idea what’s behind the curtain, but I will press in regardless. You are my life, my breath, my hope. Thank you for help when I need it. Help that will train me to be better at the things I need to do. I just want more of you. I want to hide in you and only come out when all the world is new and safe. Ok, I’ll be who you want me to be because I can trust in you like no other. Thank you for everything. Thank you for everything you do for me, for loving me completely.
