"Good News: It's Time to Give Birth to Past Promises! God is Blessing You From Past Sufferings"
Starting this month, you can expect to gain new clarity and see the birthing of new things. The Lord is going to provide greater understanding into why you have suffered. Suffering produces perseverance and God is going to use this to bring new strength to you.
Get ready for God to release a divine strategy to help you navigate through what is coming! There are good things that God has kept hidden for this time and they are now being revealed to you.
"Set up road signs; put up guideposts. Take note of the highway, the road that you take." (Jeremiah 31:21a NIV)
God is giving you signs and a roadmap, providing you directions for some major changes that are now here. Many people have been waiting for the prophetic promises of the Lord. But some of the promises you are waiting for are not the ones that the Lord is bringing in this particular season. God will show you what to let go of and what to pick up.
"For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay." (Habakkuk 2:3 NIV)
God is going to help you sort through what He has been speaking to you so that you know what to focus on. It will be important for you to let go of things from past seasons and get a clear vision for what God is doing right now. God is going to highlight prophetic words and promises from the Bible, which will be like a light going on for you. Things are suddenly going to make sense.
Understanding Your Suffering
"I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us." (Romans 8:18 NIV)
Good news is here! Things that you have suffered through are now going to come back to you in the form of blessings and restoration from what was lost. Those who have suffered are about to understand why the road has been so difficult and why it seems that things are being delayed. (Photo via unsplash)
Though suffering is not fun, there is something powerful that gets imparted when we suffer. Those who are crying out to the Lord, "My suffering in the season has been too great," are going to suddenly understand that it was necessary to go through difficulties. A new foundation is being built that will allow you to move in greater authority and anointing so that you can contain what God is imparting to you right now.
Time to Give Birth
"We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time." (Romans 8:22 NIV)
The past nine months has been a time of birth pains. The Lord began something in August 2017, which was nine months ago. There have been painful and unusual circumstances and things happening. The weather patterns, injustices being exposed, increasing violence...this has been like child birthing pains and seems to be increasing.
If you look back at what God was speaking to you last August, you will find some details and strategies that you will need right now. It may have seemed that these things were supposed to have happened already, but the Lord has allowed them to maturate in your life. Had God brought these things last year when He spoke them, you would not have been ready for them.
God has used the last nine months to raise up prophetic intercessors. Those who have been groaning like the pains of childbirth, crying out to the Lord to bring revival...this revival is now going to start in your own life and spread like wildfire to those around you. (Photo via unsplash)
Pentecost Prophetic Breakthrough
Pentecost marks the coming of the Holy Spirit during the Jewish holiday called the Feast of Weeks. We normally celebrate it just on Sunday (May 20 this year), but watch for God to move from May 19–21, which is the entirety of the Feast of Weeks. God showed me that something is going to radically shift after the 21st.
It would be good to make yourself available to hear from God during this time, as the heavens will be open for the Holy Spirit to flow with new revelation. The time between Passover and Pentecost is an exciting time of year in which God visits us with breakthrough strategies and births new things that were released during Passover.
