Friends, when God speaks over us prophetically, He is making us aware of His will for us.
God's will being manifested in our lives ALWAYS DEPENDS ON OBEDIENCE from us and from those involved in our life's promises.
If things with us don't turn out as God has spoken, it's always due to disobedience
somewhere along the line - either directly from us or from those involved in His
plans for us - it is never God's fault. There is no fault in Him.
If we and all those involved in God's promises and directives embrace His ways in 100% obedience, every single promise God has made will come to fruition in our lives, for He is Faithful and cannot lie.
Many people don't understand that God is not going to mow us down with His plans... He'll simply tell us what they are and lovingly urge us to align ourselves with His will to bring them to pass in our lives.
Remember that relationship is always a two-way street; there's God's part and there's our part. God will always keep His part, but whether or not the promises make it from Heaven to manifestation on earth ultimately depends upon our decision to obey Him. The scriptures are rife with examples of this truth in the lives of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, David, and many more.
Determine within your hearts today to dust off those "old" prophecies and allow Holy Spirit to renew your hope! Align yourselves with all of God's will concerning them and declare them in the heavenlies, beloved; then watch God honor your obedience in faith, believing!
When we trust and obey God, HE WILL BRING EVERY DETAIL OF HIS WORD TO PASS!
