Recently, I was awakened one morning and heard the Lord say one word to me, "Sustain". The Lord continued to unpack this revelation to me and gave me seven things God is going to sustain in this season.
The first one was this. God gives people a prophetic word over their life. Then He plants that word like a seed. And what happens is like in John 12:24 that seed, once it is the ground, will break open, die and then start to grow. But what we have to understand is that that prophetic word is just like a seed. The word is not the only word you are going to get. The word God plants inside of you produces many other seeds once it is planted and grows.
The Lord said, "I am going to give My people sustained wisdom." Every prophetic word God gives has a process attached to it. There is a process that we must go through to obtain the promise. There are many people who have powerful prophetic words from God, but they do not yet have the sustained wisdom from God to walk it out completely.
The second word the Lord gave me was "friends." It may seem that over the years you have had different friends come in and out of your life. Every person comes into our live for a reason or a season. Most people who come into our lives are seasonal. But the Lord spoke to me and said that, "In this season, you will have sustained friendships." These are building relationships. These are friendships that will be sustained for a long period of time, and you are going to be able to build with these friends in ministry, in business and in life. Sustained friendships are coming your way.
The third thing the Lord spoke to me about was money. God will give you a vision and a dream inside of your heart and you are so excited about it but financially there is no way you can do it. But what we do is we ask the Lord for a substantial amount of money to start that business, start that ministry, to buy your dream home or go on that vacation. But here is where we miss it. We ask God for that one big financial breakthrough. If God gave you a million dollars, you could spend that million dollars But what if God gave you wisdom to sustain wealth? God is giving people wisdom to sustain their finances. God is giving His people wisdom on how to make and sustain wealth. God gave you the vision and now His is giving you the provision.
The fourth thing the Lord spoke to me was sustained health. You know how it is, every time you get ready run hard after God you deal with sickness or infirmities. Over the past three or four years, I have been fighting physical infirmity. I'm not talking about little things; these have been things that make it hard for me to move. But through prayer, fasting and having intercessors around me, I have overcome every single one of them. Recently, in a time of prayer, I was asking the Lord to give me sustained health. I even declared, "These last four years of me battling infirmities, I declare I will have decades of sustained health. Even 30 years of sustained health." You are going to have sustained health in your life.
The fifth word was sustained peace. Many times we want to move forward in life, ministry, business, marriage, parenting or entrepreneuring, but we don't have peace in our life. Peace is an option because Jesus has made it available to us. During some of the most stressful and turbulent times of my life, I still slept like a baby at night because I had peace. I'm not worried about what the natural may look like. When you live in the supernatural, you have God's perspective about everything, and you will have peace. Keep moving forward, even if it looks like in the natural you can't and God is going to give you peace. Sustained peace.
The sixth word was very simple: God is taking people to sustained locations. Some of you have been going from city to city, church to church, job to job but God is about to plant you in the right place at the right time. God is sending people to sustained locations so He can establish you. Once you have a sustained location, you will be doing the right thing in the right place at the right time.
And finally God spoke to me about the seventh thing: God is giving His children sustained breakthrough. Breakthrough is your portion. You will have a sustained period of breakthrough. I believe God is giving many a powerful breakthrough anointing. So that wherever you go and whatever you do you will bring change. The anointing for breakthrough is coming, and it will not just be one isolated breakthrough, it will be a sustained breakthrough. When you pray, heaven and earth shakes and moves because you are a child of God declaring the word of the Lord. Everywhere you go, breakthrough will start to happen because breakthrough is your portion.
You are about to walk in sustained wisdom, sustained friendships, sustained finances, sustained health, sustained peace, sustained location and sustained breakthrough. We are entering into a season, the season we have been praying and prophesying over. This season is a season of sustainability. The body of Christ is about to step into one of the best seasons in history.
