GOD’S TIMING IS PERFECT
VISION, TRANSFORMATION AND BIRTHING- IT’S A PROCESS
There is a time, season and purpose for everything. (Eccl. 3)
Knowing that, do we really BELIEVE that God works all things together for our good? (Rom. 8)
God’s ways are certainly not our ways and when we are waiting for God to act on our behalf, we must remember He has a timing and a process.
We understand through the patterns in scripture that God is not random.
In scripture we see where God did things during the appointed feasts/festivals. He fulfilled His word, promises and plans during those times.
Trust me when I say that with God- timing is everything.
God has blueprints for your life and as you cooperate with His leading, He will position you for the fulfillment of His plans and purpose.
WAITING IN THE PROCESS
The typical response is to get weary in the waiting process and give up! Don’t give into that. The best way to stay hopeful is to stay connected to God in prayer, His Word and be around like minded people of faith who will encourage you while you wait.
Waiting isn’t a passive thing-it involves prayer.
God isn’t trying to frustrate you, He’s wanting to reveal Himself to you, because He is relational and He loves you.
There is comfort when we realize His involvment in our lives. It may still be a process but His involvement is a good thing.
The process God has for you is tailored specifically to you. Your process will not be like my process.
PROCESS & VISION
In Habakkuk we see an ongoing conversation between God and the prophet. Habakkuk brings his questions and complaints before the Lord and then waits for His response.
God did something that didn’t make sense to Habakkuk and he started complaining to God- we can learn from this.
God can handle your complaining- especially where injustices have occured. Ive learned to talk honestly with God.
God instructed the prophet to simply write down what his vision was.
God is asking you and I to do the same thing.
Writing down the vision will make it clear, not only to you but to God. Remember that God wants us to invite him into things. It opens up more dialogue between you and God and helps you see more clearly and hear His heart in the matter.
What exactly do you want? Get specific and write it down! Put it where you can see it daily and pray into it-RUN AFTER IT!!
God’s waiting on you in other words. We are in a divine partnership with God- He isn’t our suga-daddy.
Don’t know what the vision looks like? Maybe start by processing your thoughts with God and others that you trust in the faith.
We don’t just want our vision- we want God’s vision for us.
This is one of the reasons why I journal daily with God. I’ve learned that this is how I hear His heart and thoughts towards me and then I can track what He says to me on a daily basis.
Getting a clear word from God and asking Holy Spirit questions will bring clarity and life to the vision He desires to birth in and through you. The Word and Spirit bring order to us.
WHERE ARE YOU NOW IN YOUR PROCESS?
Has God given you a vision for your future? Has He given you a revelation about something to come?
“Write down this vision; clearly inscribe it on tablets so one may easily read it For the vision is yet for the appointed time; it testifies about the end and will not lie. Though it delays, wait for it, since it will certainly come and not be late.” Habakkuk 2:2-3
If you are going to birth a vision or revelation (figuratively and non figuratively) you will go through a process that involves 40 days, weeks, months or possibly years of transformation.
Maybe God is re-creating the vision in you, like He did in Noah’s time. Maybe it began at some other time but needed a re-birthing.
I sense that for many of you. Ask God to show you more about the genesis of your process.
40 IS LINKED TO PREPARATION,VISION & BIRTHING
I don’t know if you know this or not but God is mathematical.
One number we see as it relates to preparation vision and birthing is 40. We see it with Noah, Moses, the nation of Israel and Jesus and we see it in our lives as well, as the human birthing process is 40 weeks in length.
God had a vision for the earth. From the garden of Eden to Noah we see how that vision needed re-birthing- it was TIME for a reset.
For 40 days and 40 nights God sent rain to cleanse and transform the earth.
God used the pattern of 40 days to re-create, re-calibrate, re-birth the earth.
For 40 years, the children of Israel wandered in the wilderness after their miraculous exodus from Egypt. During those 40 years they grumbled, complained and refused the transformation process.
This wasn’t just a personal process, it was a national process. God had birthed a nation when He released them from Egypt and divided the Red Sea- but He had to take them through a process of transformation in their hearts and minds before giving them all that was in His heart.
Promise before process will cause spiritual abortions.
They weren’t ready to receive all God had for them. They still had the mindset of slaves and were still bitter from all their years of captivity. They had physically left captivity but the bondage was still alive in their hearts-they were rebellious.
At the end of that 40 year process only 2 people entered God’s promised land from that original generation-Joshua and Caleb.
You see agreement with the process of transformation is not easy dear ones, but without it you will stay stuck in the wilderness until you die.
Moses also experienced great personal process as he spent 40 years in Pharaoh’s house, 40 years in the desert before he went to back to Pharaoh; 40 days and 40 nights up on Mt. Sinai with God, receiving the 10 commandments and experiencing God’s transforming glory not to mention 40 years in the wilderness with all of Israel.
Moses understood process, preparation and transformation. He experienced the Glory of God like no other human- as he met face-to-face with God.
“The Lord would speak to Moses face to face, as one speaks to a friend. Then Moses would return to the camp, but his young aide Joshua son of Nun did not leave the tent.” Ex. 33:11
JESUS OUR GREATEST EXAMPLE OF PROCESS
Then there was Jesus, who was led by the Spirit into the wilderness.
This was a necessary process for Jesus even though He was the Son of God. He took no short-cuts as He humbled Himself in every way.
At the end of the 40 days His process began as He was tempted by Satan.
You must understand that before you birth your vision your identity will go throught a process of testing.
“If you are the Son of God……”If you worship me……”If you are the Son of God..
Every time Jesus answered- “It is written….
Thus the marriage of the written Word of God and the Spirit is vital in the process of transformation in your life.
You have to know God’s written word and who you are to Him.
Jesus answered Satan from a confident place of authority and identity- as the Son of God.
We must too.
What took 40 years to prepare the people in the wilderness took Jesus only 40 days to prepare the disciples after He was resurrected. This is the power of acceleration and a renewed mind.
It was important that they truly understood, nothing is impossible with God and that God would keep His promises to them.
THERE IS A TIME TO BIRTH
We are indeed NOW in such a time of acceleration.
40 weeks ago I had an encounter with God, as He woke me up on August 24 at 1:24 am and told me he was about to shift things and bring turn around in peoples lives in a 24 hour TIME period.
More and more lately God has been confirming that the timing for this revelation is now.
So I want you to get ready for the shift, turn around, birthing and re-birthing -the time is NOW!

Now may the Lord Bless you and Keep you; may the Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you; May the Lord lift his Countenance upon you and give you His Peace-as you wait.
