Last day of August…tomorrow starts September. 9/23 starts the Fall season. I hold close to my heart a Word from the Lord given to me with a specific time frame of this summer. Summer is almost over and I haven’t seen my promise. I know I can’t earn it and I know I can’t force it but in these last days of Summer I can seek the Lord regarding it. I mean really seek!!! All with those precious words on my lips… “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done…on earth as it is in heaven.”
So many are prophesying of things in September. Why do I hear something else so deeply in my heart? Maybe it is the same Word just with different Words. (I don’t write this as another prophetic word for anyone. These are my own rambling thoughts on what I feel God is saying to me.)
The Lord says “YIELD!” I have never been more desperate. I have never been more hopeful. I have never felt more prepared and unprepared. What?!? I go forth with only a Word but that Word is a promise so…I am placing all of my “eggs in one basket” as I head into these last days of summer. September is going to be a good month for the Kingdom of God. A good month but the way through it is going to be narrow. More narrow than we like to think…and the only way to walk down the path I am on is on my knees!!! Low. This thought comes to mind – no one gives birth walking around or even really sitting up and most definitely not involved in the things of the world. No, they go into the secret places to give birth. They sequester themselves. In the natural it can look really bad, feel really bad and yet be the most beautiful thing possible. It is the same in the spiritual. September is not a time for fear but to welcome what is being birthed. His promises are birthed in the prayer room but prayer involves more than just a bunch of words and it is going to take it all – prayer and worship and the Word and fasting and tears and most of all obedience. In the secret place. Expecting so much in these next few weeks.
Luke 12:29-32 And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind. For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things. But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you. Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
God bless you all.
