How can a young man keep his way pure? By guarding it according to your word. – Psalm 119 vs 9


God said it and I believe it
And that settles it for me
God said it and I believe it
And that settles it for me
Though some may doubt that His word is true
I’ve chosen to believe it, now how about you?
God said it and I believe it
And that settles it for me

“And David prepared iron in abundance for the nails for the doors of the gates, and for the joinings; and brass in abundance without weight; And David said to Solomon, My son, as for me, it was in my mind to build an house unto the name of the Lord my God: But the word of the Lord came to me, saying, Thou hast shed blood abundantly, and hast made great wars: thou shalt not build an house unto my name, because thou hast shed much blood upon the earth in my sight. Behold, a son shall be born to thee, who shall be a man of rest; and I will give him rest from all his enemies round about: for his name shall be Solomon, and I will give peace and quietness unto Israel in his days. He shall build an house for my name; and he shall be my son, and I will be his father; and I will establish the throne of his kingdom over Israel forever. Now, my son, the Lord be with thee; and prosper thou, and build the house of the Lord thy God, as he hath said of thee. Only the Lord give thee wisdom and understanding, and give thee charge concerning Israel, that thou mayest keep the law of the Lord thy God. Then shalt thou prosper, if thou takest heed to fulfil the statutes and judgments which the Lord charged Moses with concerning Israel: be strong, and of good courage; dread not, nor be dismayed. Now, behold, in my trouble I have prepared for the house of the Lord an hundred thousand talents of gold, and a thousand thousand talents of silver; and of brass and iron without weight; for it is in abundance: timber also and stone have I prepared; and thou mayest add thereto.”
1 Chronicles 22:3‭, ‬7‭-‬14 KJV

Prophecy encourages us and lifts up our spirits from depression to joy and from weakness to strength. It gives us directions and changes our perspective over issues by aligning us with God’s will over them. However, in this generation, many people have become aroused by prophecies so much that they have become lazy. God is not lazy and His word will never stir us into laziness.

King David had a strong desire to build a temple for God and God gave him a prophetic word in order to align him with God’s will. He didn’t throw caution to the wind, rather he began working in line with that prophecy. He believed the prophecy enough to take deliberate actions. His faith was accompanied by works.

He prepared building materials ahead for the one chosen for the work;
He established good social relationships ahead for the one chosen for the work;
He taught the people under him the mind of God and thus prepared them for the task.

When God gives you a promise or reveals to you His will for your life, you are not to throw caution to the wind if you want to see it come to pass in your lifetime.
Unfortunately, many people wrongly believe that hearing a prophetic word means it must surely come to pass whether or not they conform to that word of God. Prophecy is not que sera sera… It can be delayed if your character doesn’t align with its demands. It can be hastened if you take deliberate steps through faith and patience in line with the word of God.

The bible is a sure word of prophecy for anyone who believes in Christ and can act on it to obtain supernatural results.
Prophecy should be written, meditated upon, and prayed over.
War with prophecy in prayers. Act on prophetic words by preparing for their fulfillment.

If God told you you’ll travel to a certain country for a particular assignment, acting on the prophecy means that you’ll begin by praying for that country; Reading and researching about the country; Getting your international passport ready; Processing all required documents, and awaiting the supernatural.

Every miracle that God does always has a good reason. He didn’t multiply five loaves and two fishes just because He could. There were a good reason and a good need for it.
Play your part in the natural and await the supernatural intervention that the prophetic word brings into manifestation.
Prayer stirs up the word of God, war with it through prayers, and obtain your testimony.
Teach your family and loved ones how to respond to prophecy in faith and how to run with it.

It is my prayer for you that every prophetic word from the Lord God that has delayed over your life contrary to the timing of God be hastened into manifestation this morning, in the name of Jesus!
