The night of the partner prayer call, Kelita and I talked about how it felt like a different teaching. We shared that it felt more like a word from God than a teaching.

The following day, we were still talking about the emails we had received from partners who were greatly encouraged by the call. We were referring to people who had become discouraged in their faith.

Kelita sent me a text that really spoke to me.

We had texted back and forth about something I felt during the call. I had felt that there were many listening who thought, “we’ve heard this all before and nothing has changed.” To that she texted…

That is the spirit of anti christ- wearing down the saints- trying to change the times and seasons…. he’s spent years getting us focused on the time of something instead of keeping our eyes on God. Then when it doesn’t happen in the TIME we think- we get CALLUSES on our hearts so when the timing of the Lord actually comes, we are hard! We MUST keep our focus on Him to where timing doesn’t matter and then when HE says it’s time – ANTICIPATION is birthed!

This has been a concern I have spoken with her about many times.

When hearing or reading a prophecy, be wise. Especially if the person giving the prophecy gives a time line. Often times, we get our eyes on their timeline. Or we expect it to happen right away. If it doesn’t, we become discouraged. Then, we get our eyes off God.

Time passes. If we don’t see the promise in that allotted time, we may become weary and give up.

Prophecy is good. I love that gift from God. It has a vital place in the body of Christ. However, when receiving prophecy, be sure to keep your eyes on God.

If it is truly a word from God, it will come to pass. If you keep your eyes on God, the timing of it won’t matter. If you are fully persuaded in your faith, time will have no relevance.

I once heard someone teach on seedtime and harvest. They said it like this, seed…time…and harvest.

I see this as a truth. Whether we are sowing financial seeds, or sowing the seed of the word of God into our heart. There is most often time between the seed and the harvest. During that time of waiting, what we do is vital. What we set our affections on is very important.

The enemy will do everything in his power to make you think it is not going to happen. He will whisper in your ear. He will taunt you to look at the time that is passing. He will speak words against our God. He will do whatever he can do to cause you to let go of that promise. Why? He wants you to lose your vision of the promise. Without a vision, we let go. (Proverbs 29:18)

He knows Galatians 6:9 is truth. Let us not grow weary in well-doing, for in due time we will reap a harvest, if we do not give up.

We will reap our harvest, if we do not give up. We will reap our harvest of salvation for our kids and family. We will reap our harvest of wealth. We will reap our harvest of healing and wholeness. We will reap our harvest of peace. We will reap every single harvest if we continue in God’s word and refuse to give up.

You may be one of those who have grown weary. Perhaps you are feeling like you have heard it all before and nothing ever changes. If that’s you, I want to encourage you today. God is faithful. He will do all He has promised He will do.

I encourage you to cast your net of faith one more time. Choose to believe what God has said is truth. Refuse to listen to the lies of the enemy. Immerse yourself in God and His word. Build your faith. Declare His word. Seek His faith. Do whatever you need to do to get your focus back on God.
We are in a season of restoration. Don’t allow the passing of time to discourage you. Continue to trust in God and His word. He will not fail you.
