Matthew. 16:19 (KJV) And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever, thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever, thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
Many times, God will not do what He says He will do except there is a man aligned to partner with Him to see His kingdom come in a particular sphere of influence. God is sovereign and all-powerful but has given the earth to man to rule and dominate (Gen. 1:28, Psalm 115:16). So whatever God wants to do on earth, He looks for vessels who are aligned enough to partner with Him to bring it to pass.
Most times we say we wait on God to act and change our situations when God is actually waiting for us to align and partner with Him so we can see the necessary changes we desire (and this could lead to delays of the fulfillment of prophecies).
We can enter into partnership with God by believing and confessing God’s word until we see the manifestation of the word. It is not enough to confess the word but our hearts and mouths must agree so that we would not be double-minded (James 1:6-7; Rom.10:10, Prov. 23:7).
Go into today knowing that as a child of God you are a partner with God in fulfilling His purposes on earth. Don’t give up, contend in faith for every of God’s promise until you see its fulfillment.
Prayer: Dear Lord, help me to continue in faith until I see the manifestation of what you have spoken. Amen.
