"Now is the time! For the Lord has said, 'I have chosen David to save My people Israel from the hands of the Philistines and from all their other enemies.'" (2 Samuel 3:18)
The Lord highlighted this verse to me during a time of prayer for this season. Like David, many of God's people have been waiting so long for God's promises to be fulfilled in their lives. As a young boy, David was anointed king over Israel by Samuel (1 Samuel 16). But this was just the start of a long journey, full of waiting.
Although David won the battle against the Philistines and killed Goliath, he continued to run away from Saul, who became jealous of him. His dreams of being king faded further and further away. Eventually, Saul died, but David was still waiting to be king. He had gone through so much trauma, he found it hard to discern that his time was NOW.
In 2 Samuel, God sent David's enemy, Abner (the commander of Saul's army), to speak with the elders of Israel and convince them that David's time had arrived. It was time for David to be king over Israel. David was so ecstatic with joy that he danced before the Lord with all his might (2 Samuel 6:14).
Believe - Now Is the Time!
As I was in prayer, I heard God say, "Now is the time for long-awaited promises to be fulfilled." The waiting period is over. It's time to grab hold of the things God promised us—to claim our God-given inheritance, which Christ has paid for. This will happen effortlessly, as we move forward in faith and trust God.

When David received this revelation, he moved in faith and was anointed king over Israel. It's time for the Bride of Christ to move and lead the way of the coming revival.
I am reminded of the bride in the Song of Solomon, who realized her time was now. With his full approval, she told her groom, "I would lead you and bring you to my mother's house" (Song of Solomon 8:2). She was ready and she was on the move to receive all her groom had for her. As the Bride of Christ, this needs to be our condition. We are ready, and our time is now.
Many pray to have the faith of Abraham, who believed that God is able to give life to the dead and to call those things which do not exist as though they did (Romans 4:17). Against all hope, Abraham believed in hope that he would become a father to many nations (Romans 4:18).
The biggest challenge is to believe that 'now is the time.' Many find it easier to wait and believe for the future, but find it hard to believe that the time is now. Many are stuck in their past, holding onto hurt and pain, while others are focusing on their present circumstances.
However, the Lord is calling the Bride to believe what no eye has seen and what no ear has heard—the things that God has prepared for those who love Him (1 Corinthians 2:9). With this promise in mind, the Bride of Christ must discern the times and the seasons. We must operate in our God-given authority and take, by faith, what belongs to us.
