It came to pass

And it came to pass, after the death of Abraham, that God blessed his son Isaac. And Isaac dwelt at Beer Lahai Roi (Gen.25.11).

Between the word God told you and the fulfilment, there is usually a time lag that must be used to war in the place of prayers. It is by labouring in prayers that results are recorded. It is wrong to assume that because God has spoken therefore it will come to pass without praying till the answer comes. When you pray for the prophetic words received or the promises of God, it does not make you an unbeliever, it means you understand the spiritual protocol of receiving. The word spoken to you determines the type of prayers to pray.

While Daniel was interceding for the words spoken concerning Israel while in Babylon, Mary was praying the prayers of thanksgiving after the angel spoke to her. Often, when the word of the Lord comes to you, He has acted on your matter. It is usually the period before the answer that is most difficult for many due to impatience, temptations and sometimes discouragement.

Tell them therefore, “Thus says the Lord GOD: “I will lay this proverb to rest, and they shall no more use it as a proverb in Israel.” But say to them, “The days are at hand, and the fulfillment of every vision (Ezek.12.23).

God is set to fulfil all He has spoken to you. Keep your focus on Him. Your testimony shall be big. Do you have a word from God, take it back to Him in prayers. Has God spoken about our nation, it is time to labour in prayers until that which was spoken gain expression. It is no longer time to complain. Either you engage in a warfare or thanksgiving prayers, You’re blessed.
