It is through the fire of delay that God produces hearts of endurance. As we walk in places of suffering, He causes a stretching of our heart muscles to endure more than we thought possible.
Be encouraged to know that the Lord will bring us into our place of inheritance and promise, He will not delay nor hold back on the appointed day of reward and recompense.
For the Lord is going to restore our waste places, He is going to bring new life to that which has been hidden under the ground. Bulbs that have been lying in wait, will burst forth into the most glorious array of colours and scent.
It is a New Day! Look to your Saviour, behold His Glory. For it is He who will surely deliver you and set you on a high mountain, a mountain of display. He has anointed your tongue to declare His decrees over your life and your land. You, His Sons and Daughters, stand tall and know your position in Heavenly places. For all that is needed is found in His Presence.
The enemy scatters, he flees in four directions. Sore afraid of the Power displayed and released through the Sons and Daughters of our One True God. He trembles at the sight of you, ‘No! Let them not see who they are! Keep them below in the valley of the deep!’
But the Lord is lifting you up by His Mighty Arm, He is setting you on high, declaring, ‘This is My Beloved One with whom I shall share My Crown. My Power and My Glory I share with My Beloved Ones to shake and dismantle the works of the Evil One.
Rise up oh Bride of Christ! This is your appointed time to rule and reign in Heavenly places, you are My Chosen Race who will bring forth My New upon Earth’s Face.’
“Yet a little while,
and the coming one will come and will not delay;
38but my righteous one shall live by faith,
and if he shrinks back,
my soul has no pleasure in him.”
39But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who have faith and preserve their souls.
16He sent from on high, he took me;
he drew me out of many waters.
17He rescued me from my strong enemy
and from those who hated me,
for they were too mighty for me.
18They confronted me in the day of my calamity,
but the LORD was my support.
19He brought me out into a broad place;
he rescued me, because he delighted in me.
20The LORD dealt with me according to my righteousness;
according to the cleanness of my hands he rewarded me.
21For I have kept the ways of the LORD,
and have not wickedly departed from my God.
22For all his rulesc were before me,
and his statutes I did not put away from me.
23I was blameless before him,
and I kept myself from my guilt.
24So the LORD has rewarded me according to my righteousness,
according to the cleanness of my hands in his sight.
