“HOW LONG”?
THE DELAY IS BEING BROKEN.
Jodie Hughes

I HAD A VISION RECENTLY OF A SCROLL BEING PLACED ON MY CHEST
There’s a collective cry rising in the atmosphere just now. It’s a cry many are asking….. HOW LONG?

How much longer till this breaks? How long till the promise manifests? How long till you answer? How long till things shift? How long? How long? How long?

There has been a battle in the heavens for the release of many promises, and many sense the pressure of long overdue promises and breakthroughs building up. I see a picture of a funnel of provision that has gotten blocked and the corresponding pent-up pressure has been getting more and more intense. Many are feeling the strain of THE DELAY, and many feel pushed to their limit.

THE VISION OF THE SCROLL
The vision was short but profound. I clearly saw a hand place an unwrapped and old looking scroll on my chest. I looked at the well worn page and written on it was Psalm 13.

I could feel this psalm being absorbed into my heart somehow releasing GREAT FAITH FOR SWIFT TURNAROUND AND A SURGE OF HOPE FOR THE BRIDE. I knew THE DELAY WAS BREAKING. I knew the assignment to hold up promise was being broken. And I knew it was important to decree our promises and partner with God right now. Then I woke up.

THE DELAY IS BREAKING!
As I read Psalm 13, it asks this same question over and over, reiterating David’s raw, authentic cry & battle weariness. It echoes the cry of many…… how long?

YOUR RESCUE IS ASSURED
This psalm doesn’t give a time frame, it simply promises RESCUE. Your rescue is assured. As I read my eyes were drawn to the words “YOU HAVE RESCUED ME”!

LET THESE WORDS INFUSE YOUR HEART
Psalm 13
“O Lord, how long will you forget me? Forever? How long will you look the other way? How long must I struggle with anguish in my soul, with sorrow in my heart every day? How long will my enemy have the upper hand?

Turn and answer me, O Lord my God. Restore the sparkle to my eyes, or I will die. Don’t let my enemies gloat, saying, “We have defeated him!” Don’t let them rejoice at my downfall.

But I trust in your unfailing love. I will rejoice because you have rescued me. I will sing to the Lord because he is good to me.”

God is shifting your how long to your rescue HAS come! This great resistance and pressure is breaking. Divine rescue is being implemented even now. THE DELAY IS BEING BROKEN AND RESCUE IS BEING DEPLOYED EVEN NOW.

YOUR SPARKLE IS COMING BACK
REJOICE!
Your unique “sparkle” and joy is being given back! The parts of you that somehow lost their “sparkle” in the intensity of the storm are being recovered and restored. God is breathing new life and restoring your unique shine!

DEFINITION OF RESCUE
The definition of Rescue according to Miriam Webster is powerful:
Definition of rescue, rescued; rescuing
: to free from confinement, danger, or evil : save, deliver: such as�a : to take (someone, such as a prisoner) forcibly from custody�b : to recover (something, such as a prize) by force�c : to deliver (a place under siege) by armed force

Be encouraged. God is rescuing His bride!! Stir up hope. Stir up joy. Read & re-read this psalm until it connects your heart to the heart of your rescuer. He understands your heart, and your pain of the delay……… you are not forgotten, you are not invisible and He is still the God of the breakthrough. Speak life and His promises until faith stirs. Your decrees are shifting things.

PENT-UP PROMISES WILL SUDDENLY BURST FORTH
A sudden breaking through of held up provision, resources and breakthrough is upon the bride. It’s a season of quick turnarounds. DECREE YOUR PROMISES AND BREAKTHROUGH NOW. Partner with heaven in speaking God’s promises. Your decrees are smashing the assignment that has caused the delay. Here comes the pent up release of answered prayers.

Let His unfailing love enter the places of your heart today that have been asking questions and need fresh hope. Let His hope heal you. Be loved dear beloved. Your “how long” is being shifted to “your rescue has come”. The delay is breaking and pent-up promises are suddenly bursting forth.
