“’Yes indeed, it won’t be long now.’ GOD’s Decree. ‘Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, one thing fast on the heels of the other. You won’t be able to keep up. Everything will be happening at once—and everywhere you look, blessings! Blessings like wine pouring off the mountains and hills. I’ll make everything right again for my people…'”Amos 9:13-14, MSG
Recently while spending time with the Lord, I heard Him say, “Acceleration in August!” Many of you have felt the Lord working and preparing you in the stillness. Like a tree that roots itself beneath the ground, you have been undergoing much growth and maturing, even when it has not always been visible to the natural eye. Roots provide support and help anchor plants to the ground; without a strong root system, trees would not be able to withstand the strong winds. Even through the winds of adversity that you have endured, the Lord has been securing your roots so that you will now be able to resist what would have previously blown you over. Your character has been refined; you have been made ready for the increase and promotion that God is holding in store for you, just as Joseph was.
“They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit.”Jeremiah 17:8
Although the enemy intended to knock you off course through adverse circumstances, it has only served to make you stronger and even more tenacious. You will be a force to be reckoned with, a mighty arrow in the hand of the Lord (Psalms 127:4)! Your testimony will be like Joseph’s, and you will decree, “What the enemy intended for my harm, God has used for good” (Genesis 50:20).
I strongly sense the Lord’s encouragement to those who have been so battle-weary and experiencing hope deferred. God is changing your season; even in the month of August, you will begin to see momentum pick up as things begin to accelerate!
Many who have been faithfully sowing for years are suddenly going to come into a season of harvest. This won’t just in one area of life, however, but in several. Be on the lookout for blessings and open doors of opportunity, for his favor is upon you! This will not be something you have to strive to attain, rather, it will simply be the Lord’s goodness being poured out upon you. We are entering a season of great reward!
Momentum is going to rapidly increase, and what has previously seemed unclear will reveal itself. Watch as the missing pieces suddenly come together. God is bringing his justice and great reward to those who have remained faithful to steward what the Lord has called them to, even at great costs. Many have been ridiculed, misunderstood, and slandered simply for following God’s call on their life. Even so, the Lord is going to make things right. He has seen the tears wept, and he knows the cost of your “yes.” Recompense is upon you, for he calls you faithful!
“‘I know your deeds. See, I have set before you an open door which no one is able to shut, for you have a little power, and have kept My word, and have not renounced or denied My name.'”Revelation 3:8, Amplified
The Lord is not only bringing restoration, He is also making things even better than what you’ve previously experienced. Take heart and let hope arise! Breakthrough has already begun, so watch and begin to see acceleration in August!
“Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne; love and faithfulness go before you.”Psalm 89:14
