Be careful not to rush into anything prematurely.
Often The Lord will lead you in directions that just may seem pretty much beyond you.
He did it to Abraham when he told him to go from the place in which he was so familiar with.
Whereas He told Isaac to stay exactly where he was.
That’s hard isn’t it?
It’s hard to go away from a place that you’re so familiar with and into the unknown.
It’s hard to stay in a place that to you might seem so hopeless, you’d rather leave.
It is important that we learn to trust The Lord no matter what.
Even in the driest season we must learn to trust Him.
I can testify that the dry season is the most difficult season to be in, because it’s the season where the enemy will discourage you the most.
The dry season is where the enemy will cause you to compare yourself to others, just to cause you to stop trusting in The Lord.
The dry season is where the enemy will cause you to forget about all that The Lord has already done for you, so that you can give up.
In the dry season there is the temptation to go into something prematurely, whether work related or ministry related.
In the dry season there is the temptation to heed to our own voices instead of the voice of God.
The dry season is in reality trying, because you have got to learn to totally depend on and trust in The Lord.
Despite all that is going on.
The dry season will teach you to wait on God’s timing instead of your own.
God speaks in the dry season.
He will always reassure, remind, and encourage you of who you are and what He will do through you.
But in the dry season He will always remind you that He will do what He says He will do in His own time.
In the dry season it can become frustrating.
Moses later became frustrated in the wilderness, in the dry season and that later prevented him from entering into the promised land.
We must not allow trying times to frustrate us, else it will prevent us from entering into the promised land.
This is most definitely a Word in season for me.
Quit complaining, and learn to trust God no matter what.
God is not going to call you at the same time as your brother and sister.
Neither is God going to use you in the same way as your brother and your sister.
God might tell you to stay or He might tell you to go, whatever He tells you, just trust Him.
God knows, He is all seeing.
You might not see it now.
You may not understand it right now, but He does.
You have the ideas, you have the dream, you have the vision but guess what it will not happen according to your timing but according to His.
Because it is all for His glory.
Joseph, he had a great dream,a great vision didn’t he? But did it happen right then and now?
It happened according to God’s perfect timing.
God can never fail you.
No man can curse whom God has blessed.
Once God has spoken He has the final say.
We have just got to learn to trust Him even in the driest season, we have got to trust His perfect timing.
Remember that everything can not happen all at once, there is a process.
God prepares us in order to go through the process.
He has given you that great vision but first you must go through the process, it is not just going to happen.
Joseph went through the process.
Potiphar, prison, and became Prime Minister.
Joseph he had a great vision, but he didn’t just enter into it.
I’m sure if most of us were in Joseph’s shoes as soon as we enter prison we would give up.
Sometimes we have got to enter prison before we enter into His great vision.
Sometimes prison is apart of the process.
Often the dry season will feel like prison.
But even in the prison God is there.
Even in the wilderness God is there.
Even in the dry season God is there.
Often we will have to be alone before we can enter into His great vision, but we are never lonely because God is always there.
Remember wherever The Lord is taking you it will not be the same way as your brother or sister.
But always remember that for every child of God there is a process, and there is a perfect timing.
Like Joseph you may have found favour in Potiphar’s house, and that for you may be work related, or ministry related.
Praise God, and even in Potiphar’s house always remember to trust and acknowledge God.
And for some they may have found favour in Potiphar’s house but now they have entered prison.
For such people I urge you not to give up, prison(the dry season, the wilderness) is apart of the process.
When you enter the prison(the dry season, the wilderness) you are getting even closer to the vision.
When you enter the prison(the dry season, the wilderness) it means something great is about to happen.
Congrats! You are just about to enter into your promised land.
Go if The Lord is telling you to go, because He knows if you’ll go you’ll enter into your season of reaping the harvest.
But stay if He is telling you to stay because He knows if you go you will miss out on the season of reaping the harvest.
There is a perfect timing for everything.
I’m very encouraged right now, as I was not expecting this Word from The Lord.
The work of your hands is not in vain.
Do not allow the enemy to lie to you, to discourage you.
The Lord is pleased with you, and trust Him it’s going to get much better.
It may take some time for the vision to become a reality, do not worry it will happen according to God’s perfect timing.
When you wait on The Lord you are not wasting time.
Rather we waste time when we do not wait on The Lord.
You can work all you want but if you’re not working according to God’s perfect plan then you are only wearing yourself out.
Refuse to let the enemy worry you.
Relax, God has spoken.
Be patient, and wait unless He tells you otherwise.
A Word of encouragement for myself and for anybody else who is in the dry season, trust Him it is apart of His perfect plan.
Thank You Lord.❤️😊🙌
Do not be surprised when The Lord tells you to do the outrageous.
If you study The Word you will understand that God supersedes the norm.
So if He asking you to do something that is beyond you know that you can because He said so, no matter how crazy it may seem.
Because guess what He knows you are capable of doing so.
The dream, the vision may seem so crazy to your friends and even to your family but God said so, and so it will work.
We have got to learn to hold on to His Word, and not let go no matter what.
Are the opinions of others really necessary at times, no I don’t think so.
Often we ask for the opinions of others just so that we can try to talk ourselves out of doing and being what God says.
If God said so, you don’t really need the options of others, you do not need to seek their approval.
If you do that you will never come out of the prison(of the dry season, of the wilderness), rather you will stay there.
And that is not God’s intention for us.
He desires that we come out and enter into the vision.
The prison is apart of the process, but we are not supposed to stay there.
There must be a time that we come out.
That all depends on how much we yield to the Spirit of God.
The key to getting out of prison and into the vision, is simply trust.
Put your trust in God, and you’ll be out and into the promised land.
Just know that in His time you will get there.
In your own time you will not.
So in everything you have got to keep your eyes fixed on God.
It may take ten years in our time, to God ten years may be a day.
Will you still trust Him?
The vision will always be there for you.
The challenge is time.
Do not let time defeat you.
Overcome time with trust.
Trust in The Lord.
Thank You Lord.👀
Ok I think I’m done now lol.❤️🙈🙌
I know there are many believers dealing with this not just myself so He has more to say, but we thank God for His encouraging Word. Amen😊❤️🙏
Doubt, will not get us to the place that He wants us to be.
God has got it all in control.
Look to Jesus and not to the storm.
Look to the vision and do not dwell on the prison.
Commit your works to the LORD, And your thoughts will be established. Proverbs 16:3
A man’s heart plans his way, But the LORD directs his steps. Proverbs 16:9
Honest weights and scales are the LORD’s; All the weights in the bag are His work. Proverbs 16:11
How much better to get wisdom than gold! And to get understanding is to be chosen rather than silver. Proverbs 16:16
It is better to do what The Lord is telling you, than to follow what the world is telling you to do.
This world is temporary.
His Word is eternal.
Choose life, choose eternity.
God does not have to answer to the world, but the world will have to answer to God.
When that day of judgement comes He will not ask you what did you do for the world?
Rather He will ask you what did you do for My Kingdom?
That’s why He says seek ye first The Kingdom, and not seek ye first world.
Everything else He will add, but He says first it’s My Kingdom.
First we must look to God.
Understanding is a wellspring of life to him who has it. But the correction of fools is folly. Proverbs 16:22
The heart of the wise teaches his mouth, And adds learning to his lips. Proverbs 16:23
There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death. Proverbs 16:25
Where you are going may seem right to you but if God is not involved, you are simply on the road to destruction.
The person who labors, labors for himself, For his hungry mouth drives him on. Proverbs 16:26
The lot is cast into the lap, But its every decision is from the LORD. Proverbs 16:33
In every decision we make lets involve God first.
As for God, His way is perfect; The word of the LORD is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him. II Samuel 22:31❤️🙌
“For who is God, except the LORD? And who is a rock, except our God? II Samuel 22:32
God is my strength and power, And He makes my way perfect. II Samuel 22:33
He makes my feet like the feet of deer, And sets me on my high places. II Samuel 22:34
“You have also given me the shield of Your salvation; Your gentleness has made me great. II Samuel 22:36
You enlarged my path under me; So my feet did not slip. II Samuel 22:37
Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; Proverbs 3:5
In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. Proverbs 3:6
To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven: Ecclesiastes 3:1
What profit has the worker from that in which he labors? Ecclesiastes 3:9
I have seen the God-given task with which the sons of men are to be occupied. Ecclesiastes 3:10
He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, Ecclesiastes 3:11
But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. II Peter 3:8
Now the LORD had said to Abram: “Get out of your country, From your family And from your father’s house, To a land that I will show you. Genesis 12:1
I will make you a great nation; I will bless you And make your name great; And you shall be a blessing. Genesis 12:2
I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” Genesis 12:3
So Abram departed as the LORD had spoken to him, and Lot went with him.
And Abram was seventy-five years old when he departed from Haran. Genesis 12:4
There was a famine in the land, besides the first famine that was in the days of Abraham.
And Isaac went to Abimelech king of the Philistines, in Gerar. Genesis 26:1
Then the LORD appeared to him and said: “Do not go down to Egypt; live in the land of which I shall tell you. Genesis 26:2
Dwell in this land, and I will be with you and bless you; for to you and your descendants I give all these lands, and I will perform the oath which I swore to Abraham your father. Genesis 26:3
because Abraham obeyed My voice and kept My charge, My commandments, My statutes, and My laws.” Genesis 26:5
So Isaac dwelt in Gerar. Genesis 26:6
Abraham, Isaac, and Joseph all had to eventually dwell in Egypt at a certain time.
Joseph had to enter prison before he got to the vision.
The Israelites were eventually enslaved in Egypt for 400 years, and then The Lord uses Moses to deliver them.
Then they end up in a dry season the wilderness but well on their way to the promised land.
They carry the bones of Joseph with them from Egypt and into the promised land.
He never intends for us to stay in the prison our murmuring, frustration, lack of faith will keep us there, but when we trust Him the enemy can never hold us captive.
Even death could not hold Him captive.
On the third day He arose.
Even in the grave Jesus is Lord.
The Israelites carrying the bones of Joseph to the promised land was prophetic.
Jesus died yet He is alive, He arose.
We are free because He lives.
We will enter His vision, we will enter the promised land.
There’s always a process before we enter into His perfect plan!
There is a process.
No matter what He will take you out of Egypt and into the promised land.
You can never stay where you are forever.
Just wait and trust Him.
For His timing is perfect.
