There is more on this subject (waiting on God) please read inspirational article from my Snapshots of Glory weekly series “Man & Woman of God, though it may tarry wait for it” posted 4th March on this Manna from on High Blog, simply click on URL below
As believers in Christ, the “seed of Abraham”, we can draw encouragement from the fact that because we have the faith of Abraham, we too like Abraham, his son and grandson are declared righteous and guaranteed victory in our journey to fulfil our destiny. A journey that is full of challenges which includes promises that may take longer than we desire. Waiting on the promises of God is not easy, but we have Abraham, Isaac and Jacob as our role models for despite waiting for a long time for the fulfilment of God given promises, they came to pass.
Our God is faithful so let us rest in Him and exercise our faith, waiting patiently for all that He has planned for us.

Child of God, your God given image is who you are and it is not negotiable – unalterable internally or externally in order to please or fit into the status quo – quite frankly say to those who want to redesign or re-define you “accept me as a unique masterpiece of the creator or let’s wave each other goodbye” and “accept me as I am & respect me as I do you or dump me, your choice”!
Prophetic Counsel /encouragement
This month of October until December begins the winding down of 2017 as it were the shutting of the door to 2017 and an entry into the door of 2018.
Be reminded that It is The Lord God who closes doors and sets an open door before you that no man can shut, so this entry in 2018 is His open door or new season through which if only you will seek & trust Him will lead you into His divine purposes.
These next three months are therefore a time to take stock of this year and be sensitive to what He is saying you must do in these final months which if heeded to will affect events positively in 2018, for while The Lord can do it without you, He chooses for you to partner with Him as a God of relationship. God is always calling us higher, to places of greater intimacy and depth in Him (Rev 4:1) and has told us to call on Him (Jer 33:3). Our being called by Him and being asked to call on Him is so that God, a God of communication and love will show us mysteries/things we do not know for He wants us to know the signs of the times and things that He plans to do.
God called Abraham His friend and so decided to tell Him in advance when He was going to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah. It is just as well because Abraham could intercede for Lot. This shows the importance of those who are friends of God hearing from him for someone’s life including their own could be saved because He trusts them enough to share what is on His heart with them.
Christ Yeshua said to his disciples then and is saying to those who are now:
“Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.” (John 15:15 KJV). Thus those who qualify to be friends of The Lord are the obedient ones as Abraham was and are rewarded with the gift of revelation or knowing his secrets/mysteries.
It is therefore not too early for you, a “friend” of The Lord to start thanking Him for what He has done and is about to do nor seek The Lord in prayer for revelation and His wisdom concerning 2018 in relation to your plans whether they are in alignment with His for you or what He wants to share with you I.e world, family or individual issues ahead as well as insight into the enemies strategies.
Those who delight in The Lord will have the desires of their heart. May He grant you all your desires according to His perfect will. Have a blessed week ahead
Ask God for “eye salve”(supernatural means to overcome spiritual blindness) so you can “see” (discern) the wolves in sheeps’ clothing or the beast’s prime agents in the high places…unless of course you can see, but prefer to pretend all is well, or you prefer to stay in the “land of oblivion”.
Choose to see things as they truly are and indeed as a disciple of Christ, you shall know the truth and the truth will set you free (John 8:32).
God will open your spiritual eyes, give you revelation; (wisdom, knowledge and understanding) so as to pray according to God’s will and be always alert and attentive to His warning.
May the LORD gift us with greater insight and the gift of discerning of spirits in this generation of escalating wickedness and evil.
