Why the Delays?

As a prophetic voice I receive a large amount of emails or messages from individuals who do not understand all of the words of hope and yet all of the delays that they personally are experiencing. 

Of course there is no way to give one answer for all since there are so many variables in different lives. I know that I can speak on behalf of many of those voices and say that we humbly and faithfully wait on the Lord to hear His words, how He desires for them to be released and when to release them. We are always so pleased when we see that other voices are hearing the same And yet why all of the delays?

This past week I heard the verse from Psalm 37:3 that says,
“…dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness…”

The moment that I heard these words God opened my eyes to see something that gave me understanding about many delays in circumstances. 

I saw many of God’s people “cultivating faithfulness” in the midst of circumstantial delays. They had promises that they were holding on to and yet delays and desperate needs before them. They were not moving from their posture of believing in the faithfulness of God, they were not wavering in trust and they were not allowing circumstances to dictate who their God is. I could hear their voices raised with the words, “You are forever faithful my God!” 

As I saw this it was like they are reversing something in the land, in the nations and in the spirit realm. Years of disappointments that caused many to abandon their faith had strengthened the case of the Accuser of the Brethren but this season of time has revealed a company of men and women that refuse to deny their faith or who they know their God is. They are His “witnesses of faithfulness” and they are cultivating (feeding upon) His faithfulness even in the midst of very difficult circumstances.

This is reversing a curse. It is defeating the accusations and it is healing the land and affecting the spirit realm.

If you are one of these “faithful witnesses” who has been cultivating faithfulness as you dwell in the promise of His faithfulness then know that your faith has not been in vain! 

Ephesians 6:12 says that when you’ve done all that you can do and can do no more then STAND. Stand firm in the faithfulness of God. Stand in His truth and put on the armor of His truth. Dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness. 

Though I cannot tell you when your circumstances will change but I can tell you that change is happening. The negative circumstances are actually causing a change to happen in the spirit realm and in the land. Authority is coming back upon God’s people as they stand in truth and God’s faithfulness.

“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints— and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.”

‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭6:12-20‬ ‭

Dwell and do not loose heart! He has not forgotten you or your needs. He is forever faithful!
