God’s Promises + Our Belief = Earnest Expectation
Isiah 43: 19 “Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.”
God’s promises which we believe and receive leads us to the next level of earnest expectation, these promises must come to pass or be made manifest, tangible in our lives, for He alone is God who cannot fail.
1-Enlarge the borders of your tent, expect, anticipate increased blessings. Make room for and increase your capacity to receive them, do so now, don’t wait.
2-Go back to your field of broken dreams, and resurrect every God given dreams, vision and goals that He has ever given you, resurrect them and begin anew to bring them to fruition. Begin to bathe and nurture them in prayer. This is your season, so walk in to it. Though the vision or promise tarries wait for it, the time is now for them to begin to come to pass.
3-No vision or dream for God’s glory?
Get a great dream or vision by prayer and fasting, every believer should have one. Get one and begin saturation prayers over them now.
4-How quickly is the fig tree dried up!
This refers to Jesus condemning the fig tree to die and it did so very quickly from the root up. God’s authority will increase so much in your life that truly what you bind on earth, will be bound in heaven, and what you lose here on earth, will be loosed there in heaven. This will be quick and powerful because you will be wielding the sword of the spirit which is the word of God.
5-Vicious attacks will be made against Christians. How will we respond?
Fire back. Speak, prophesy against these wicked words (fiery darts of the wicked) send them back to the sender no matter who the sender is. When someone gives a nice wish to you we respond by saying, “and same to you, or likewise.”
Let wicked words spoken or sown be reaped by the wicked speaker. Pits that are dug for you and your family, let the diggers fall into it. Gallows made for you? let the gallows maker hang on them. It’s either them or you. Who will it be?
Your number one job is to ensure that you and your family survive.
6– Hostility to God and the believers makes one wicked.
The Bible describes the Wicked as those who are hostile and hateful to God. (Strong’s concordance) They position themselves as enemies of God. Well, let God arise in you and let every enemy be scattered. Remember God’s enemy is your enemy, and your enemy is God’s enemy.
