Hold Your Course to Obtain Your Promises!

by Cindy McGill
Oct 14, 2004

New days ahead. In these days of uncertain events, there can be a perceived need to make decisions under pressure. When things are coming apart, it is human nature to try and hold things together. The Lord is urging us to hold to the path He has us on right now. The steps of righteous men and women are ordered by the Lord. His path is sure and will lead us to a victorious end, but if we veer off that path, it can take us in a wrong direction as well as those following us. It's time for the vision and the reaping season has begun.

Galatians 6:9

9 And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.


There seems to be a shift in our relationships. People we once had a very strong bond with are now being removed from us, moving into the next season in their lives as we are moving into the next season in ours. Though we miss those tight friendships, it is important to see the plan of the Father who is bringing other people into our lives. We are always being molded by each other. It is easy to stay with the certain and comfortable friendships, but there is a new order being laid out and new friends are coming. These new friends will add to us as God uses us to add to them. We will soon discover that our eyes are being opened to new ideas and styles. This new alignment and networking will produce great revelation and insight. We'll see God teaching us something about His love in a new way.

A freshness is birthed from new friendships and strength is added to all of us.


People are coming back to the Lord. Those who, for whatever reason, had walked away from Him. The spiritual hunger that comes from that incorruptible seed, has done its job in drawing loved ones back to Him. Other perceived avenues of fulfillment haven't satisfied these ones who have been bought with a price. God is tenacious at holding on to those who have come to Him. He is fully able to complete the work He has started in all of us. It's important that we follow the example of the prodigal son's father as these weary travelers return. Creating a safe place and a welcome that lets them know they are received home again. Some of these new arrivals will be mightily used of God in this next season we are entering. On their journey, they have unknowingly picked up some vital information that God will use to instruct the church for this harvest. They will also be used to reveal the heart of the elder brother who has developed a self righteous attitude that needs to be repented of. Exciting days are ahead as the
family is being restored again.


Habakkuk 2:3

3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry.

We have crossed over the hard places and now it is time for the promises to come to pass. There are those who have stood in faith, even when it looked like nothing was ever going to happen. Those pastors and leaders who said a million times, "I can't do this any more". The tears, the prayers, the fastings and plowing in hope is about to be rewarded. Tears that have been shed are with the Lord and counted precious to Him. The faithful husbands, wives, mothers, fathers, intercessors, who have stood in against seemingly impossible odds, not wavering, are getting ready to see desires fulfilled and the tree of life blooming. The whole chapter of Deuteronomy 8 is at hand.

Deuteronomy 8: 1-2

1 "Every commandment which I command you today you must be careful to observe, that you may live and multiply, and go in and possess the land of which the Lord swore to your fathers. 2 And you shall remember that the Lord your God led you all the way these forty years in the wilderness, to humble you and test you, to know what was in your heart, whether you would keep His commandments or not.

The process has been completed in those who have stood for years and under great pressure. A people who have allowed God to groom them for this place
and didn't run away. The years of refining fire have produced vessels that
He can entrust much to.

God is a rewarder of faith and diligent seekers. It is time. Time for seeing things that have been prophesied and hoped for.

Deuteronomy 8: 7-9

7 For the Lord your God is bringing you into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and springs, that flow out of valleys and hills; 8 a land of wheat and barley, of vines and fig trees and pomegranates, a land of olive oil and honey; 9 a land in which you will eat bread without scarcity,  in which you will lack nothing; a land whose stones are iron and out of whose hills you can dig copper.

A strong resolve has been built in these very hard times. A strength has been built that has not been realized yet. God is getting ready to entrust much to those who have given much.


Get ready for the new fathers and mothers in the faith who will instruct this next generation. Those who have been passed the baton by those fathers and mothers who have gone to be with the Lord. A fresh anointing will be placed on these teachers and mentors. New insight is coming forth. These spiritual "parents" will be given a glimpse of the mysteries that have been stored up until now. A spiritual inheritance has been left to us by previous forerunners such as Maria Woodworth Etter, Charles Finney, William and Catherine Booth, Aimee Semple McPherson and the world will see the mighty acts of God demonstrated again in this final harvest. Classrooms will be filled with young, passionate, believers who will feed from the treasure God has invested in you. I hear God say "thank you" for your years of service. The best days are ahead and the glory of the latter house will be greater than the former.

Haggai 2:5-9

5 'According to the word that I covenanted with you when you came out of Egypt, so My Spirit remains among you; do not fear!' 6 "For thus says the Lord of hosts: 'Once more (it is a little while) I will shake heaven and earth, the sea and dry land; 7 and I will shake all nations, and they shall come to the Desire of All Nations, and I will fill this temple with glory,' says the Lord of hosts. 8 'The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine,' says the Lord of hosts. 9 The glory of this latter temple shall be greater than the former,' says the Lord of hosts. 'And in this place I will give peace,' says the Lord of hosts."

Be so richly blessed today!
