Activated Promises

“I am watching over My Word to perform it” (Jer. 1:12).

When God speaks a Word over your life, He watches over it until the time of its fulfillment. In this prophetic season many are nurturing promise 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.

Prophetic Means Activated:

God’s Word is living and active (Heb. 4:12). It is a moving, living resource activated by the authority of God, because it is spoken by His living breath, the Spirit of God or Holy Spirit. The Apostle Paul confirms this by saying, “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God (meaning it is God-breathed), and is profitable (beneficial) for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete and thoroughly equipped for every good work.” (2 Tim. 3:16-17).

The “Now” of God’s Word:

Notice he says “The Scripture is God-breathed”; not, “was God-breathed”. Its a current Word! God’s Word always is in the “Now”. It is being carried upon God’s breath. What He spoke in years gone by is still being spoken. Not a single Word is lost or forgotten.

Every Word has a Timing:

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 is shaqad which means “to be alert, to be awake, to be on the lookout”. The purpose of the Word was to release destiny and increase favor. We must become alert and join the watch with Him (Ezek. 3:17-19); interceding in prayer concerning the Word He has spoken over us. We watch with Him in faith, believing that what God has said He has power to fulfill. Every Word of God carries within it the power and authority intended for its fulfillment, because our God is watching to perform it at its appointed time. He will never let His Word fall to the ground.

Awaken the Promise:

God has not forgotten! Have you heard a Word from the Lord today, maybe recently, or perhaps in the midst of a season in the wilderness? God has not forgotten what He said to you. It is time to bring that Word before Him and hold onto it with complete confidence that what He has promised He will bring it to its ultimate fulfillment.

An activated promise is ready to be fulfilled… God is waiting for us to believe!
