THE AIR IS PREGNANT WITH PROMISE!
Megan Howell

 

This week I dreamt I was making a puzzle, and I was holding up two pieces and I was looking at them and said ‘These don’t go together at all- how will these ever fit together?’ I didn’t realize they were pieces from two different parts of the puzzle.

When I woke I had a deep sense that the dream was in reference to the promises of God. I was holding up two promises or prophetic words I’d received and wondering if or how they would ever come together. Then the Lord began to speak to me about promises and puzzles. Part of the joy of puzzle making is not necessarily knowing where all the pieces go, but discovering along the way as you build that the pieces work together into one big picture.
I believe God is encouraging us with this word- that He is faithfully building a picture with our promises, drawing them together and giving us permission to enjoy the process!!

Then I got excited when I looked up the definition of enjoy: to take delight or pleasure in; to POSSESS AND BENEFIT from! Yay! Jesus is willing us to ENJOY the process of seeing our dreams come true in this season!

Later in the week as I stood out in the humidity and felt the Lord say ‘THE AIR IS PREGNANT WITH PROMISE’. Then I
saw a double rainbow!

I believe God is doing more than just fulfilling or piecing promises together at this time, He’s preparing our hearts for a DOUBLE PORTION OF PROMISE!
He’s stretching our hearts, ready to receive MORE THAN WE BARGAINED FOR, and more than we believed for! And his encouragement is that the air is PREGNANT with PROMISE!

Perhaps like me, you have had many opportunities to become discouraged, disappointed or disheartened this week!?
But don’t be afraid- don’t be dismayed- what the enemy wanted to use to distract you, God is using to prepare and equip you!

In the midst, the Lord has been singing to me ‘Don’t let disappointment steal your prize, don’t let discouragement turn your pretty eyes!’ That’s the Lords encouragement to us- don’t let disappointment steal your prize, your joy, your hope, your enjoyment of Him- don’t let the enemy turn your eyes from Jesus- the ONE who is so worthy of our gaze!
Instead, I heard the Lord say- ‘SING for your supper, and dance for your deliverance! SING for your supper and DANCE for your deliverance!’

Then I heard part of a spontaneous song I have been singing of late
‘No more shame, there’s only victory, there’s no more shame there’s no more shame for me! Double recompense is coming my way- I’ve got a reason to celebrate! Double recompense is coming my way- and so I will sing!’
Then the Lord reminded me of Psalm 40:2-3
He brought me out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my steps. He has put a new song in my mouth, praise to our God; many will see it and fear, and I will trust in the LORD.
Or the Passion translation says: A NEW SONG FOR A NEW DAY rises up in me every time I think about how he breaks through for me! Ecstatic praise pours out of my mouth until everyone hears how God has set me free. Many will see his miracles; they’ll stand in awe of God and fall in love with Him! (v3)

The LORD is releasing a NEW SONG FOR A NEW DAY over you- a song of praise, a song of victory, a song of celebration- that MANY would hear and see His goodness outworked in your life! So sing friends- sing for your supper and dance for your deliverance!

THE AIR IS PREGNANT WITH PROMISE! Perhaps all that’s needed is a little rain dance? We have a reason to celebrate- double recompense is coming our way- So let our praise be heard in this hour!

God has not forgotten you!
God has remembered, and He will come through.
He is faithful, He is true,
God has not forgotten you!

Can a mother forget her nursing child? Can she feel no love for the child she has borne? But even if that were possible, I would not forget you! Isaiah 49:15
