The Lord spoke this to me a few day ago and it really impacted my heart. I knew it was a corporate word but it was so applicable to the way I happened to be feeling.
Let this be an encouragement to you just like it was for me!
“I am promise.
I’m the one that unwinds the road before you, bringing light when all you see can see is darkness. The words that I have spoken have not disappeared into the earth to be forgotten forever. They have been placed in rich soil like seeds to be watered and cared for as they grow into a beautiful crop.
I’m the one tending the seeds inside of you. I know it seems like nothing is happening but the growth is not being stunted. Don’t become discouraged by the lack of movement or progress you see in the natural. The plants are being prepared for the day that they will burst through the ground, releasing fruit into your life and the lives of those around you. I have so much more for you than you can even imagine so don’t turn your face away from the promises I’ve made to you.
I am Promise.
Keep the distractions and anything that would cause destruction out of the field. There are things the world has to offer that can seem to cause fast growth. But that growth is only temporary and soon after all things begin to wither and die. What I am doing may not be happening as fast as you’d like but the end will bring eternal rewards rather than temporary relief.
I want to refresh you, renew your heart and mind as I work to prepare the steps ahead of you. I will never let you go and I will never walk away. I love you and you are so precious to me. I will never forget the intense desires of your heart. The things you long for are the things I long for, for you!”
