This morning I heard the Lord say, "My yes is still yes."
I began to see many across the body of Christ who have heard a promise from the Lord and have been believing and contending for this promise. However, recently, there has not been one giant but numerous standing before their promises.
The level of battle and opposition against the promise of the Lord has been so intense that I saw many have come to a place of doubt, wondering whether what they heard from the Lord regarding these promises was actually right. I saw many beginning to question, "Maybe I heard God wrong?", "Maybe I've misinterpreted?", "Maybe what I have been believing for all along is just not my portion?"
The words from the Lord's heart resounded so loudly over this deep inner wrestling many face. "My yes is still yes."
Immediately, I was surrounded by 2 Corinthians 1:20 (NLT): "For all God's promises have been fulfilled with a resounding "Yes!" And through Christ, our "Amen" (which means "Yes") ascends to God for his Glory."
In the Passion Translation, it reads: "For all God's promises find their "yes" of fulfillment in him. And as his "yes" and our "amen" ascend to God, we bring him glory."
Friend, God has not forgotten you. God is faithful to complete that which He has spoken. I heard the Lord say "Keep standing on My yes with your yes", continue to agree with Me, for I am going to fulfill that which I have spoken (see Isa. 55:11). The battle may be intense, the journey wearying, but the tidal wave of My refreshment and strengthening is upon you."
"The waves of opposition have come and attempted to take you further away from the promise I have spoken to you, but I say unto you that the tide is going to turn. By My mighty outstretched arm, I am going to move in power, and I will part the Red Sea of impossibility!"
"Everyone will say, 'Come and see the incredible things God has done; it will take your breath away! He multiplies miracles for His people! He made a highway going right through the Red Sea as the Hebrews passed through on dry ground, exploding with joyous excitement over the miracles of God'" (Ps. 66:5-6).
The enemy has come so ferociously with hit after hit, blow after blow, to wind you and take your breath away, but I prophesy that the incredible things God is going to do, the multiple miracles, the powerful deliverance, the way that God is going to make a way through the impossibility into the manifestation of what He has spoken, will take your breath away in awe and wonder of His mighty power.
I heard the Lord speaking over these individuals: "You will have a powerful testimony to which the harvest of souls will be drawn."
Friend, this is bigger than you. The Lord is faithful to fulfill that which He has spoken. He loves you so dearly, but the Lord also sees the harvest of souls that will come to the feast table of your testimony, to taste and see the goodness of the Lord (see Ps. 34:8). The impossibilities that have come up against your promises recently, the pressure and opposition worse than ever, the screaming intimidation that continues to entice you to "give up, give up", have all come because the enemy is terrified of what God is going to do for you and through you.
The enemy is terrified of the way the Lord's kingdom will go forth through you. The enemy is doing all he can to stop you. The enemy is also terrified of so many souls coming to know Jesus through your testimonies. The testimony of His miraculous power in these areas of promise the Lord gave you, the places where impossibilities seemed to increase by the day—those places will be some of the greatest demonstrations of His power that you will tell the world about and through which many will come to know Jesus.
Do not give up! Stand up and join your yes with His yes afresh. Then watch and see God do the rest. You are closer to the manifestation of God's promise and divine justice than you realize.
