It's time to wage warfare with the prophetic words spoken over you and your family.
Though our prayers are answered immediately by the Lord in the spiritual realm, it takes persistent prayer for those answers to manifest in the physical realm. The Apostle Paul instructed his spiritual son Timothy to wage war and “fight well” using his personal prophecies.
"Timothy, my child, I entrust to you this command, which is in accordance with the words of prophecy spoken in the past about you. Use those words as weapons in order to fight well, 19 and keep your faith and a clear conscience." 1 Timothy 1:18-20 Good News Translation (GNT)
The Amplified translation of that verse exhorts us to "be inspired and aided" by the prophetic words "that you may wage the good warfare." The New Living Translation tells us that the prophetic words "help you fight well in the Lord's battles." And the Message Translation tells us the prophecies should make you "fearless in your struggle, keeping a firm grip on your faith and on yourself.
After all, this is a fight we're in. It's a good fight of faith against unseen enemies. The enemy is real, but the fight is often the fight to believe God's Word is true in the face of contrary circumstances. In waging war you have to mix the Word with faith otherwise the word will do you no good. "For we have heard the Good News, just as they did. They heard the message, but it did them no good, because when they heard it, they did not accept it with faith." Hebrews 4:2 (GNT)
While believing for the word of the Lord to come to pass in your life, allow the promises of God to give you hope and sustain you. Don't become frustrated and give up before your breakthrough. Think about Daniel. He had a prophetic vision that took him into prayer and fasting for three whole weeks. During that time Daniel experienced an angelic encounter. The angel told Daniel from the first day he started praying out that prophetic vision, God heard his words and an angel came because of his words.
"Then he said, “Daniel, don't be afraid. God has heard your prayers ever since the first day you decided to humble yourself in order to gain understanding. I have come in answer to your prayer." Daniel 10:12
It's time to go back and review some of your prophetic words and rise up against the enemies that are standing in the way of your destiny. Know that they are God's Word spoken to you!
May you be abundantly blessed!
