"The Issue of Timing - When Prophetic Promises Haven't Come to Pass"
Kim Potter, Dayton, TN

From the Desk of Steve Shultz:

Steve ShultzThis is such an important word right now...for this "time". I know many of you have had powerful prophetic words spoken over you in your life...in your callings. Often when things don't happen right away, we become discouraged and we let that prophetic word fade away.

For those dealing with this right now...this word by Kim Potter is just for YOU!

Kim shares here:

...When receiving a prophecy, be wise and ask God for the timing of it. Often times, we set our eyes on it happening right away. If it doesn't, we become discouraged and we take our eyes off God. Time passes—if we don't see the promise in that allotted time frame, we may become weary and give up.

"The Issue of Timing - When Prophetic Promises Haven't Come to Pass"

Our Timeline Vs. God's Timeline

One night after a partner prayer call, Kelita (my assistant) and I talked about how the teaching had felt different—it felt more like a word from God than a teaching. The following day, we were still talking about all the emails we had received from partners who were greatly encouraged by the call (we were speaking a word to people who had become discouraged in their faith). Kelita and I had also been texting back and forth about something I had felt during the prayer call. I had felt that there were many listening who thought, "We've heard this all before and nothing has changed." Then she sent me a text that really spoke to me. This is what she wrote:

"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 CALLOUSES in our hearts, and when the timing of the Lord actually comes, we are hard! We MUST keep our focus on Him to where timing doesn't matter; then when HE says 'it's time,' ANTICIPATION is birthed!"

This has been a concern I have spoken with her about many times in our private conversations. When receiving a prophecy, be wise and ask God for the timing of it. Often times, we set our eyes on it happening right away. If it doesn't, we become discouraged and we take our eyes off God. Time passes—if we don't see the promise in that allotted time frame, we may become weary and give up.

I love the gift of prophecy, as it is vitally important in 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.

The Enemy Knows God's Truth

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 own hearts. There is most often time between the seed being planted 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 what God has promised you 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 and he will do whatever he can to cause you to let go of that promise. Why? Because he wants you to lose your vision of the promise. Without a vision, we let go (Proverbs 29:18).

The enemy 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.

Choose His Truth

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 that 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 and seek His face. 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. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
