Upon receiving a Word from the Lord, that you have now entered your “takeoff” season, you are elated. Instantly you begin to imagine all the different ways that God will accomplish this. Though you understand God’s ways and thoughts aren’t yours, you still can’t help but to imagine. However, things begin to take a turn for the absolute worst. Does this sound like a season you’re in?
Don’t worry, you are right on track for God’s Word to be fulfilled in your life. It’s just you don’t have the right perception. Let me guide you though this. When a plane is preparing to takeoff, it first backs away from the jetway. Though the plane is set to be in the air, it has to go through this part of the process first. The same for you.
When it feels like a setback, know this season is only God’s way to set you up for a major comeback. He has to reveal those who doubt your anointing. He has to reveal those parts of you that still need fixing. He has to renew your mind for the new level you’ll be experiencing. It’s all a part of your process.
So though it feels like a setback, know this won’t be where the story ends.
“Until the time that his word came to pass, The word of the Lord tested him.”
Psalms 105:19 NKJV
