Prophetic Promises

“When God gives us a promise instead of an answer, it reveals His desire to draw us into our eternal purposes.”

Bill Johnson

Food is our sustenance; we need to eat in order to live. As it is in the natural, so it is in the spiritual. Moses wrote in Deuteronomy chapter eight, verse three, “He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna, which neither you nor your fathers had known, to teach you that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord.”

Our bread, what sustains us and gives us strength to live, is every word that comes from the Lord’s mouth. I require nourishment from God’s Word when I’m tempted to sin, feeling weak and in need of His grace. Both the Logos and Rhema words provide life support. Both are God’s promises that He will fulfill.

I read my Bible daily and a few times a week, I sit quietly in God’s Presence, listening to His voice. Our pastor here says, “One word from the Lord, changes everything.” I can testify to that. Hearing God’s voice altered the depth of intimacy with Him. When I receive a word from Him, I pray into those words and declare them out loud. Truth needs to be heard, not just read.

I’ve been typing up the Rhema words I heard from the Lord, during our last year in Omaha, which specifically spoke to our upcoming move to Wichita. I have been blown away by the fulfillment of His prophetic promises to John and me. Just as the angle told Zechariah in Luke 1:20b, He is doing for us: “…My words will certainly be fulfilled at the proper time.” 

These are a few of His words I’ve held onto, which have given me life:

  1. This is for your good.

  2. You will love, absolutely love, what I have next for you and John.

  3. More freedom.

  4. You won’t be disappointed.

  5. You will feel at home there.

  6. There will be a moving forward in your whole being, acceleration and momentum. 

“God is the God of promise. He keeps His word, even when that seems impossible; even when the circumstances seem to point to the opposite.”

Colin Urquhart

Relevant Reflections:

  1. How have you seen God’s Word, both the Logos/Rhema, give you life?

  2. Periodically declare God’s prophetic promises He’s given to you.
