For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us. [2 Corinthians 1:20 KJV]
Look at Sue's story. Sue Justus wins a 10-day all inclusive, all expense paid trip to Spain. She excited because she just got her passport and finished a beginner's course Spanish one month ago. This prize is perfect timing. Sue shops for clothes, packs and feels more excited as each day approaches for travel. Sue is prepared and ready to go! Everyday of the trip is adventure and she is having the time of her life. Day 10 arrives Sue checks out. She is all smiles and has a twinge of sadness at leaving this paradise. The hotel manager helps with Sue's checkout and asks with much concern if everything was to her liking. "Oh yes, lovely," Sue responds. Relieved the manager exclaims, "Really? We weren't sure since you never came to any of the meals we prepared in your honor." Sue, shocked response, "What meals!?"
For no matter how many promises God makes to me, Jasmin I cannot get access nor can I disburse them if I do not have presiding work. There is a specific prophetic anointing in my life that's being made manifest in my life regarding work. I have to exercise dominion in order Master, manifest and walk in authority in the area of work. I tell you truly the journey is intense. The travel coordinates for my journey have been full mysteries as well profound revelations. The real deal is in God's Word being work (energy) that never stops, and I mean never. God's Word is not just letters. That is why God tells the letter kills but spirit gives life. "And we have such trust through Christ toward God. Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think of anything as being from ourselves, but our sufficiency is from God, who also made us sufficient as ministers of the new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life." [2 Corinthians 3:4-6] There will come a point in everyone's life the Spirit (rhema-spoken Word of God) that works. This why we are encouraged to not just be a hearer of God's Word but to DO God's Word. But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. [James 1:22 KJV]
Concerning all God's promises the yes and amen (let it be) is done however by us, well that is going to requiring work. Let's look at just a few by us moments:
- Deliverance-- the Promise to the Children of Israel took the 40 years to receive it. Think about the things that held up their obtaining God's Promise. Think of how many perished in the wilderness never obtaining the promise. Moses himself did not make it. Think about why.
- Healing-- health and healing is a promise of God think of man at pool of Bethesda 38 years or the woman with issue of blood for 12 years. It took them a long time to have their aha moment. How long before you have yours.
- Wealth and abundance--Joseph the Dreamer comes to mind. Do you realize the road map to his prosperity was not at all easy but is was a work in progress the entire time. At any point he could have given up and stopped believing but his partnership was with God.
