Speak Your Future ... It Ain't Over RoverOct 30, 2020
When Job prayed for his friends, the Lord restored his fortunes. In fact, the Lord gave him twice as much as before! So the Lord blessed Job in the second half of his life even more than in the beginning.
Job 42:10, 12 NLT
How many of you know you are on the verge of moving into a new season of abundance?
You've been making plans, you've been doing the work, you've laid out the vision ... and you've been diligent.
You can feel it in your heart. You know, that you know, that you know. And while there's no real physical evidence to match this knowing in your heart, there is no turning back for you either.
You are 100% in.
You are at the precipice of God's abundance. Abundance occurs at the precipice, that tipping point where everyone else quits.
Jesus came for our abundance, the abundant life. Read His words for yourself.
John 10:10 AMP - The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance [to the full, till it overflows].
You might be thinking, "Yea BUT Gerald" ... oh keep your big BUT out of this. The yea BUTs are from the enemy, not God.
You, my friend, are in the final chapter of your Job season. And I love the last chapter of Job. It begins with Job speaking what is in the Word of God, over and over, he says ...
Job 42:2 NLT - I know that you can do anything, and no one can stop you.
Then God rebukes Job's friends who criticized him with their yea BUTs. Then God asks Job to pray for them. As Job obeys, God gives Job double for his trouble.
Job 42:10 NLT - When Job prayed for his friends, the Lord restored his fortunes. In fact, the Lord gave him twice as much as before!
vs 12 - So the Lord blessed Job in the second half of his life even more than in the beginning. For now he had 14,000 sheep, 6,000 camels, 1,000 teams of oxen, and 1,000 female donkeys.
Now, after the book of Job, and you'll be worn out from reading it, you'll find the book of Psalms. Get ready to be refreshed. Step into it with me. I love how Psalms begins.
Psalm 1:1-3 NLT - Oh, the joys of those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or stand around with sinners or join in with mockers. But they delight in the law of the Lord, meditating on it day and night. They are like trees planted along the riverbank, bearing fruit each season. Their leaves never wither, and they prosper in all they do.
Psalm 2:8-9 NLT - Only ask, and I will give you the nations as your inheritance, the whole earth as your possession. You will break them with an iron rod and smash them like clay pots.
The book of Job is a painful read without the final chapter. The final chapter is the precipice to the new chapter of Job's life.
The last chapter of Job is a prophecy over your life. It is what God is going to do for you.
Along your journey, there have been many who have betrayed you. They criticized you. In fact, many of them are your Christian brothers and sisters. Some are speaking ill of you at this very moment.
Pray for them. Forgive them. Put them behind you, they belong in your past. Now let's step into your future.
Take the scriptures, the 6000 plus promises in the Bible for you, read them, meditate on them, and begin to speak them every day forward. These promises are the prophecy of your future. Breathe life into them by speaking them. (see Ezekiel 37)
Take the Prophe-CY and then Prophe-SY. Take the CY to the SY.
Isaiah 55:11 NLT - It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it.
Many times in my life, I've stood at the precipice, the end of dry season. Tired and worn out from the journey. In these moments, I've taken the scriptures and aggressively prophesied (SY) them into my life. I declared life into them. Not by my power. By the power of God.
I declare these promises over you today. I stand in the gap with you. My faith joins your faith.
Matthew 18:19 NLT - I also tell you this: If two of you agree here on earth concerning anything you ask, my Father in heaven will do it for you.
Agree with me. I declare DOUBLE for your trouble. I speak restoration through the blood of Jesus Christ.
