No More Delay - It's Time To Birth The Promises!
IT'S TIME TO BIRTH THE PROMISES!!!
And by faith even Sarah, who was past childbearing age, was enabled to bear children because sheconsidered him faithful who had made the promise. Hebrews 11:11
It is uncanny how many people I know are seeing repetition in numbers. 11:11, 111, 444, 222, 333, etc. God often speaks to me using numbers, and often the time. When He highlights a number multiple times, I take notice and begin to seek Him on what that might mean.
Before we moved from Kansas City to El Dorado Springs, I saw 444 for months beforehand. The Lord showed me that this meant open doors. We had been praying and sensing a change and then suddenly God moved us away.
For the past 2 years, I've been seeing 444 again....and have been strongly sensing a move.
I've also been seeing 11:11 (and other numbers, but for this blog, focusing on 11:11). After multiple times over the past week or so, I asked God, what are you speaking for me? For us? I heard Hebrews 11:11 - the verse above. I asked Him ok, so am I getting pregnant? Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! I have had in my spirit that this month, September is the month we will be birthing our destiny, my healing and a turnaround in our finances. I know, in the natural, there is absolutely no way we can see this happening. But if you look at this verse, Sarah wasn't looking at her natural circumstances, she was focused on the Lord = WHO IS FAITHFUL!!!!! That is where we are at. It has been a hard long journey. It is hard to be around people, because they ask, anything new on our "destiny". And our answer is the same. Not that we can "see". It's often awkward at best. I know some must think we are absolute fools! And then there are the few that really care and are walking with us, believing and contending for this dream to come to pass.
Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen;
it gives us assurance about things we cannot see. Hebrews 11:1
This morning, I was sitting on the couch, with my bible in hand.....asking God to speak to me. To be honest, I had tears streaming down my face. Feeling a little sorry for myself. I've had so many sleep deprived nights, frustrated that I can't find a remedy to allow me to sleep. Frustrated, that this exacerbates and gives me additional health concerns. Frustrated that I cannot change a thing! Only God can! Yet, my heart was still in prayer and grieving for so many who have way worse problems than I do. I had just been looking at videos from Hurricane Maria and the earthquake in Mexico. It truly grieved my heart, the fear and devastation those people are experiencing. And so, I thought how selfish I was complaining again about my little old problems. At that moment, I got a text from a friend in Kansas City. She is not one I talk to often but she hears from God. She sent me this:
Ezekiel 12:21-28 There Will Be No Delay
21 The word of the Lord came to me: 22 “Son of man, what is this proverb you have in the land of Israel: ‘The days go by and every vision comes to nothing’? 23 Say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am going to put an end to this proverb, and they will no longer quote it in Israel.’ Say to them, ‘The days are NEAR when EVERY vision will be fulfilled. 24 For there will be no more false visions or flattering divinations among the people of Israel.25 But I the Lord will speak what I will, and it shall be fulfilled without delay. For in your days, you rebellious people, I will fulfill whatever I say, declares the Sovereign Lord.’”
26 The word of the Lord came to me: 27 “Son of man, the Israelites are saying, ‘The vision he sees is for many years from now, and he prophesies about the distant future.’
28 “Therefore say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: None of my words will be delayed any longer; whatever I say will be fulfilled, declares the Sovereign Lord.’”
In that moment, my tears went from tears of sorrows to tears of joy. God knew exactly what I needed to hear to give me strength and courage to press forward, once again. This Scripture is filled with NOW words. It sums up the words God has spoken to my heart in my quiet time and through other personal prophetic words.
I don't know how!! I don't know exactly when! But, I do believe that my God, who is faithful is about to birth EVERY promise He has spoken to us. I believe this applies to others in the Body of Christ as well. It is time, we step into our destinies. There is such a great harvest to be harvested! Many hurting, broken souls that need Jesus! They need to know the love of the Father. They need to be set free from bondages, sin and addictions. It's time to be about our Father's business once again!
NO MORE DELAY! IT'S TIME TO BIRTH THE PROMISES!

God has given us a vision to build a retreat property along with ministry equipping center.
The retreat portion of our ministry is to provide a safe place for pastors, lay leaders & other ministry folks to come and be refreshed & encouraged through prophetic ministry (if wanted). We will offer private cabins with kitchens & full bathrooms, and plenty of places to roam on the property to get quiet with the Lord.
We will offer other specialty retreats - marriage, healing, prophetic teaching & activating people into the world & health and wellness retreats and more.
The Lord has graced us with the desire to come alongside the Church - to bring healing, deliverance & freedom to new/newer believers. We are not wanting to replace their church, but better help them be ready to serve in their church.
In our community building - we will eventually have a 24/7 prayer room, healing & prophetic rooms and a place for community worship services for those on the property.
Our passion is to minister to a lost & hurting world. To equip the saints to do the same and to be a blessing to our community and surrounding areas. Our hopes are that we can pour out God's love in a mighty way to bring more and more souls into the Kingdom, get them discipled, called into their purpose & destiny and released to do God's business!!!! We also have a passion to give generously to help those in need and to help others launch into their God given destinies.
