Sticking to the Prophetic Blueprint

blueprintToday I am praising God for His goodness. I am usually very steadfast in what God tells me, but for some reason I allowed a particular circumstance to get me down. But when I start praying, it doesn’t take long for God to reassure me of what He has said.

My desire to go home to New York was just that; a desire. But once God has spoken, God says what He means and means what He says;. For you who are of the prophetic call remember this:

Amos 3:7

New International Reader’s Version (NIRV)

7 The Lord and King never does anything without telling his servants the prophets about it.

This morning my pastor was teaching online and he reminded us to stick with the “prophetic blueprint”. That means to stick to what God has already revealed. Nothing has changed.

Sometimes we get tired and antsy and we get tired of looking at the same old thing. But remember God knows all and sees all and if you are waiting there is a reason. Wait for the promise and don’t do anything to cause a delay!

Habakkuk 2:3

King James Version (KJV)

3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.

 

Going Back?

So I’ve been talking about this move back to New York, and I knew that the house I used to live in was for sale. So I decided to do a search on Zillow and was shocked to find out it finally sold! I just assumed it would still be on the market. So that changes some of what I see. Of course everything I shared was what I was desiring by faith and really wasn’t in the realm of possibility in the natural. But that was no problem for me.

Just because I was seeing this in no way means it’s God’s will. In this case, it had a lot to do with desire and lack of vision. But there was something comforting about thinking I could go back. But honestly, if you think about it, is God really calling us to go back? I was looking at the house on googlemaps and it just looks like I would be going backwards, not going forward. I’m sure God has something better.

Do I really want to go back? I felt like I did, but now a big part of what I saw for myself, appears to be gone. But anyway…let me stop rambling. I really need to get in the face of God and get a renewed vision for the future because now it seems I have none. Strange how a house being sold could change my direction. Well maybe.

Proverbs 29:18

King James Version (KJV)

18 Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.

Proverbs 29:18

New International Version (NIV)

18 Where there is no revelation, people cast off restraint;
but blessed is the one who heeds wisdom’s instruction.
