Jewels from Judy: Cooperating with the Promises of God
Judy A Bauman
Do the promises of God seem slow in coming, or do you wonder if they are coming at all? Do you wonder if you heard Him correctly or misunderstood what He meant? This was the topic of my conversation with the Lord this morning – New Year’s Day. Here is what the Holy Spirit spoke to my heart, and I pray He will use it to speak to yours as well.
“My child, you misunderstand your part in My promises, and this is what I am teaching you. You are and have been learning that you must cooperate with My promises. I do not want My people to lay down and let Me bestow gifts. It is My desire for My people to engage with Me, so that the victory has greater value. If My beloved ones do not engage in the conquering of a matter, then the success of it is not shared or mutually enjoyed.
“My Desire is to share My victories and that can only be done if My people will engage with My plans and purposes. You live in a time that your forefathers longed to see, so I encourage you to co-labor with Me. The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few.”
2 Corinthians 1:20 “For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us.”
Romans 8:37 “Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.”
Matthew 9:37-38 Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”
