On November 27, 2019, I deposited a check made payable to our coaching business, issued by Dauphin County as part of a workforce development grant. We didn't write the grant, but the organization that applied for it, included our business as one of the entities that is providing training for their staff.
Every year in March and September, we pause to rehearse the prophetic words that were spoken over us and this ministry in south central Pennsylvania.
"I'm going to unlock finances through grants...." Prophetic word spoken over us in our Commissioning Service (May 30, 2004).
Every time I rehearsed the recording of that prophetic word from over 15 years ago, I always wondered how it could possibly happen since we didn't have the time or resources to do any grant writing. It never occurred to us that God could make us beneficiaries of someone else writing and receiving a grant.
So what's my point?
Don't try to figure out how God is going to fulfill His promises to you. Just continue to obey the steps He has already set before you, even if they don't make any sense at all. When God gives you a promise, you can count on it. You can live in expectation of its fulfillment; even if it takes 15 years.
And this small check was just the beginning. I took this photo in our car, sitting outside our bank. It is a reminder of a prophetic promise.
Carol and I have told our children (natural and spiritual) that they have one job after God gives a promise. That one job is to get prepared for the moment when HE opens the doors and sets them on a course to fulfill the reason He had them born into this world.
There's nothing you and I can do to make a prophecy come to pass. But we can get ready for it.
BE ENCOURAGED FAMILY - GOD'S GOT THIS!
