When God speaks a word over your life, he watches over it until the time of its fulfillment. I believe that Silver Creek Fellowship is in the midst of a prophetic season where many people are nurturing promises given to them by God years ago. It is time to bring these out again and, together with the Holy Spirit, keep watch over them. That's how we partner with the Holy Spirit in the fulfillment of God's prophetic word to us.
The Bible says that God's word is living and active. It is a moving, breathing word because it is spoken by his living breath - the Spirit of God! The Apostle Paul says:
"All Scripture is given by inspiration of God (God-breathed), and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness" (2 Timothy 3:16).
Notice he says the Scripture “is God-breathed"; not, "was God-breathed". God's word always IS. It is being carried upon God's breath. What he spoke in years gone by - is still being spoken today. Not a single word that God speaks is ever lost or forgotten.
God says he is watching over the word he has given you: "I am watching over it; like a hen broods over her eggs". The Hebrew word for watching is שָׁקַד (šā∙qǎḏ) which means "to be alert; to be awake; to be on the lookout". We watch with God in faith as we prayerfully consider the word he has spoken over us. The way that we watch with him in faith is by believing that God has the desire and the power to fulfill what he has promised. Every word of God carries within it the power for its own fulfillment. He will never let his word fall to the ground.
Have you heard a word from the Lord, maybe recently, or perhaps many years ago? God has not forgotten what he said to you. It is time to bring that word before him in prayer and hold onto it with complete confidence that what he has promised he will fulfill. I have a feeling that many of us are entering into a time of prophetic fulfillment. Keep that word fresh. Believe it. Proclaim it. Pray over it. And wait for it - it will surely come!
Isaiah 14:24 “The Lord Almighty has sworn,
‘Surely, as I have planned, so it will be,
and as I have purposed, so it will stand.’”
