Be encouraged Body of Christ, it has started to rain! It has been a long and intense season after season for the last 4 years. At every step, with all that you had in you, you did your very best to obey God at all costs. You kept hanging on to the faith that you profess. You knew that God is ahead of you in everything He has called you to. You kept it all centered on doing everything for the glory of God, for His sake that others see who He is through you for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.
Though this process has made you physically weary and drained. You are hanging on to a thread of the hem of His garment; hanging on to the hope that you profess. Though you wonder, “how long God? I am not sure I can hang on any longer? God, you said its almost time and I believe you. How long more God?”
You looked back 6 times and you saw nothing. This time, the 7th time that you look back you WILL see a cloud the size of a mans hand and it WILL begin to rain! It’s time because the rain has begun!
Be encouraged! God is faithful! Every word He sends forth never returns to Him void! He has seen you! He has heard you! This is your season of freedom, victory and deliverance. The tides are now turning. It’s time to harvest your blessings! It’s here! He has seen that you have been faithful to all He has asked of you. God has seen that you did well with the talents He placed in your hands. God is proud of you and who you have become. He has seen that you chose never to compromise Him or His word regardless of anything or anyone around you.
“It is the same with my word.’s
I send it out, and it always produces fruit.
It will accomplish all I want it to,
and it will prosper everywhere I send it.
-Isaiah 55:11 (NLT)
It’s your time! It’s time to emerge! It’s time to come forth! Get ready because all things are about to radically change in your life.
You got this! Embrace your current process with joy for the joy set before you!
43 Then he said to his servant, “Go and look
out toward the sea.” The servant went and looked,
then returned to Elijah and said, “I didn’t see anything.”
Seven times Elijah told him to go and look. 44 Finally the
seventh time, his servant told him, “I saw a little cloud
about the size of a man’s hand rising from the sea.”
Then Elijah shouted, “Hurry to Ahab and tell him,
‘Climb into your chariot and go back home.
If you don’t hurry, the rain will stop you!’”
-1 Kings 18 (NLT)
