"Get Ready to Push"
In the New Testament we read about the angel Gabriel appearing to Mary and telling her that she was going to conceive and bring forth a Son, and His name would be called Jesus. Mary's reply was "Behold the maidservant of the Lord. Let it be to me according to your word" (Luke 1:38).
The Holy Spirit is showing me that although every one of us are carrying a promise from God, some of us are spiritually tired and emotionally drained. The time of being pregnant with God's promises may be exhausting and seem long term, but don't get weary in the process. A natural pregnancy is measured in three stages which are called trimesters. Many of you are in your third trimester. Don't abort the baby because your due date is drawing near. Get ready to push.
"You Are About to Give Birth to What You Have Been Predestined For"
The Lord says, "The water is about to break and you are about to deliver. Stay strong and stay focused during the process. There are gifts that have been lying dormant inside of you and it is now time to give birth to what I have imparted to you. Doors are about to open for what I have called you to do."
John 16:21 A woman, when she is in labor, has sorrow because her hour has come; but as soon as she has given birth to the child, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world.
"Although the waiting has been arduous, you are about to give birth to what you have been predestined for. You may have been in hibernation for so long and are afraid to step out, but now is the time to be released into what you have been created for." (Photo via en.wikipedia)
Luke 1:26-28 Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. The virgin's name was Mary. And having come in, the angel said to her, "Rejoice, highly favored one, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women!"
"In the same way that Gabriel came to Mary and said that she was highly favored, I say to you that you are also highly favored. You did not conceive through artificial insemination but through My Spirit.
"I Will Place People in Your Life Who Are Also Pregnant With the Same Vision"
"The seed that has been implanted inside of you will come into fruition, and My divine presence operating within you will be regenerated. In the same way that Mary was impregnated supernaturally, you will also conceive supernaturally. You are also carrying something so valuable that will change the world if you submit to it.
"Just as Mary's cousin Elizabeth was also pregnant and the baby leaped in her womb, I will also bring others to you who are also carrying divine destiny. I will place people in your life who are also pregnant with the same vision. They are those who are in alignment with the same dream. Together you will work in unison and there will not be any disunity." (Photo via pixabay.com)
John 3:6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
"Trust Me when you feel that the process is too difficult. Know that it is I who works in you both to will and to do for My good pleasure. Do not say that this is an uncomfortable place, but know that it is necessary to bring you into My purpose and plan for your life. You will know that you are in the third trimester as the discomfort intensifies. Don't try to induce labor before its time, but welcome My plan as it comes into existence.
"This is not the time to give up but get ready to push because you will soon see the fulfillment of the promises that I have for you," says the Lord.
