Since 2019 began I have started to take notice of what I would term as “full circle moments”—from prophetic words over the Body of Christ to personal promises from decades ago suddenly coming upon us. It is as if 2019 is taking loose threads and weaving them into the fabric of our stories so that we enter 2020 with a completed garment.
For me, personally, much of this has come about in very unexpected ways. It has reaffirmed my confidence and belief in how God orders and establishes our steps in the midst of “my plans.” Suddenly the trajectory of life has shifted and the direction has aligned with promises of old…even long forgotten promises.
The Arrows of the Lord Are Ready to Launch
My dear friend, Daneen Bottler, wrote a prophetic word on June 14th about being “shot out” like an arrow. She describes the pressure of being pulled back in the bow and then the speed and momentum of being shot out. I believe that this is such an accurate description of what is happening to many at this time. 2019 has been a year where the Lord has taken arrows from His quiver and placed them in His bow. Just as Daneen shares in her prophetic article, there has been a strong pressure as they are being pulled back, but then suddenly they will be launched!
It’s Time to Judge Him as “Faithful” Once More
This full circle time could also be described as a “for such a time as this” moment. Many years of preparation are now coming to completion for a new time of living in the assignment. The past decade has been a time of deep refinement and preparation.
Recently I heard someone prophesy about an eleven-year preparation period and as I heard these words, I realized that the past eleven years have significantly been marked by a time of great preparation, refinement, purification and redemption in my life. I believe that this prophetic voice nailed a time cycle of eleven years that we have finished and another one that we’ve entered into. I have been meditating for an entire year on Hebrews 11:11 which says, “By faith Sarah herself also received strength to conceive seed, and she bore a child when she was past the age, because she judged Him faithful who had promised” (Hebrews 11:11).
She judged Him faithful who had promised! She had her full circle moment. Though her faith wavered, and she even laughed at the absurdity of the promise, etc., still she had “judged Him faithful who had promised!” This is a full circle and fulfillment time for many promises that you judged Him faithful to fulfill, even if your faith wavered and you could not see a way for the promise to come to pass.
I believe that in this moment we are all to declare and judge Him once again as “faithful.” This is a kairos moment to speak over your life, over the lives of your children and over your promises the words, “You are faithful!” We are to declare them loudly over the Body of Christ and over our nations. We are to reaffirm that we “judge Him as faithful!”
“And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue His work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.” (Philippians 1:6)
The “Waiting Room” Season is Coming to an End
A long time and season of lingering in the “waiting room of promise” is coming to a close as we finish 2019 and enter into 2020. Many have felt that what began as a beautiful promise many years ago, became an extended time of being placed in a quiver, and even hidden away. But suddenly you will be taken ahold of, placed in His bow, and shot into the fulfillment of the promise. The seed will bring forth the promise fulfilled even though some of you, like Sarah, feel too old! Your names are being called and the “waiting room” season will come to an end.
The full circle of a promise given and that promise fulfilled is coming upon us. Though it has tarried for a long time, we are now in a “for such a time as this” moment.
“…And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?” (Esther 4:14)
Declare with me, “He who promised is faithful to fulfill!” Amen.
