Whatever you are praying about in this season, be encouraged that it is happening. Though things in the physical have not yet changed, there is something moving in the atmosphere. Your prayers are going to shake down the walls of doubt and unbelief. While you are waiting, ask God to help you prepare for what you are praying about in this moment. Whatever you are seeking from God, involves your partnership with Him. Now is the time to align your faith and works as you are in expectation of answered prayers. Even when you experience the moment of God’s fruition and manifestation, your works with God will still be required to maintain and build on that answered prayer. Your partnership and preparation are vital to nurture and sustain what you are seeking and asking for. If you are praying for a mindset of consistency and persistence, start by making the necessary changes to your schedule and personal life that reflect that prayer. If you are praying for a breakthrough, you can start living in the newness of that transition in this moment. If you are praying about clarity for a situation, position yourself to abide in His presence. Make yourself available to see and hear His instructions and information with clear vision and precision. Prepare for what you are praying for; make room for all that is coming to you.
What you are asking will require endurance through all of the trials that will come from your steps of faith and works. Your works represent the seeds that you are planting in God. Your works will illustrate the foundation of what is about to transpire from your prayers. Your expectancy from God now becomes tangible. You are agreeing with the power of God when that miracle happens. Your faith and works speaks to the preparation of what you are believing God to do. “Do you want to be shown, you foolish person, that faith apart from works is useless? Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered up his son Isaac on the altar? You see that faith was active along with his works, and faith was completed by his works. You see that a person is justified by works and not by faith alone. For as the body apart from the spirit is dead, so also faith apart from works is dead.” –James 2:20-22, 24 &26.
If your prayer takes two months or two years to answer, know that God is still faithful and honors your works and faith in Him. He sees what you are doing for His kingdom in your off time. He sees what you are building in the wilderness. There is a responsibility and obligation to what God has assigned to your name. What we will receive from God is not just for us, but for the people that will become connected to you. His assignments to you are always bigger than you. We can show God that we will be the ones that will go and do great things in His name because we believe in the Holy Spirit. The things that you are praying about have the potential to transform and help others. Ask God to help you to prepare for what is coming. Ask Him for guidance and provision for the things that you are seeking answers and information about. God is a rewarder of those who seek Him diligently. Do not give up on your prayers. Keep praying; the heavens and earth are ready to experience what God has already claimed over you. Some moments are put in place for us to be in the stillness and know that He is God. Those moments help us to retrieve the information we need to move in our works and faith. His presence is needed for us to understand and move accordingly. God will walk you through your prayers and works. Your healing, progress, and restoration has already been paid for through Jesus. We have full access in Him to prepare for the things that we are praying about. Pray without ceasing—God hears you. It is coming to pass.
