Recently, I was in a time of corporate prayer, and I was just pacing and praying by myself. I began to labor in prayer, making declarations and decrees over the prophetic promises I haven’t seen come to pass yet. Then I just heard the Lord say so clearly, “I’m stepping in.” As soon as I heard this from the Lord, I felt such a relief in my spirit. Then the Lord spoke again to me, and He said, “I’m stepping in. I’m stepping into their personal lives, marriages, ministries, and businesses. I’m stepping into their finances, certain situations, and circumstances. I’m stepping in.”
When God steps in, everything changes. When God steps in, things shift. This is why I believe this is a powerful prophetic promise for so many in this season. Many have been praying, interceding, and standing in faith, believing for God to move on their behalf in so many different ways and situations. This is your time! God is about to step in!
Daniel 2:21 says, “He changes times and seasons; He deposes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning.” God can step into a season and change it. He can set up somebody new in leadership and remove others. Many times in my life, I’ve seen leaders suddenly removed and someone new step in. This is why you need to always do your part to position yourself with the Lord because He is the one who elevates the faithful into positions of influence. Some of you just simply need the Lord to shift you into a new season.
I believe as the Lord steps in for you, you will see Him change times and seasons for you. Some of you just need wisdom and revelation about what to do next. The Lord is the one with wisdom and understanding, and He wants to give it to you if you will only lean in to receive it. The Bible says if we lack wisdom, all we have to do is ask for it! God is looking for those who are hungry for the wisdom of Heaven and those that will do what they are instructed to do so they can go forth and do great exploits for God. Some just need to become the leader of their own life. It’s time for you to step into what God has for you!
Lamentations 3:22-23 says, “Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness.” God is so faithful, and you will see the true greatness of His faithfulness in your life as He steps in to answer your prayers in this season. Galatians 6:9 says, “And don’t allow yourselves to be weary in planting good seeds, for the season of reaping the wonderful harvest you’ve planted is coming!”
I want to encourage you, my friends, never ever, ever stop believing for your prophetic words to come to pass. You will see them come to full fruition in your life as long as you don’t give up! If you are tired or find yourself growing weary in this season, don’t stop now. If you have prophetic words that God has spoken over your life that you are about ready to give up on, then this word is going to help you!
Mark 1:35 says, “Jesus got up early in the morning and went to a solitary place where he prayed.” This lifestyle of dedicated prayer will keep your heart from growing weary in the waiting. It is only from the place of prayer that I draw the strength to do all that God has called me to do. If you will get in the presence of God, commit yourself to the place of prayer, and stay grounded in the Word of God, you will not grow faint or weary. The Lord is merciful, and His mercies are new every morning.
Get in there with the Lord, and allow Him to refresh and encourage you so that you can be an unstoppable force for the Kingdom of God.
I want to encourage you again that the Lord is about to step in! This is your promise for this season that no matter how impossible things may have looked in the past, you are about to step into a new season, my friends. The Lord will do everything He has promised, and you will see everything shift when He steps in. Do get ready for healing, financial breakthrough, promotion, greater revelation, and whatever it is that you have been believing for because it is about to happen!
