Yesterday at fellowship I received what seemed like a 20-minute prophecy. I was very caught off guard by God’s focus on me and His words as my heart wasn’t in the best place. In fact, I almost missed them because their tone was so conversational and flowed like streams of water. Before the deliverer of the words shared what she was hearing she asked if anyone needed ministry. Although I knew that I did, just as some others in the room did, I didn’t speak up. Mostly because I was in a place of hopelessness and did not even care for the state of my own heart. Yet the Lord in His mercy, love and goodness directed His gaze to me through this woman and proceeded to speak:
“Nicole, you will dance in Uganda. You will release healing in dance. You will release redemption. You stand in the gap for your generation. The tears that you cry are tears of intercession for your generation. Just like the weeping prophet Jeremiah, you weep. You weep for nations. Your husband is a king. Do not settle. You will not have to look for him for he will find you. Do not settle. There is favor on your life. God is revealing the real, eternal, you. This is evident even in your natural hair. God has done so much in you. Do not be discouraged by what is going on around you. These are land issues and God has removed you from the equation. Turning 30 set the stage for the next decade of your life. The blessings and favor will be evident for the next decade. You will see with the eyes of Yeshua and it will be so much brighter than what you see now. Your eye lenses are changing. Do not be discouraged, for this is only a season”.
Another woman then anointed my feet with oil and kissed them. Just as Jesus’ feet were anointed by Mary. I was humbled and in awe. All I could do was ask in my heart, “Father, what are you doing with me???”. I then went into intercession for my mom. We all then surrounded another woman in the fellowship, laid hands on her and prayed. I released to her a song I heard and interceded for her and her family.
I am deeply touched by the Lord’s words. It really shows His devotion to us and His care of us. Even still, I struggle with the timing of His promises. In my heart I ask, “How long Lord? How long before Your promises come to pass in my life? How long before my loved ones experience Your answered prayer?”. Africa has been on my heart for a few months now. I’m not sure if I will go but I have a desire to. I’m not sure when this will be but I know if I do, God will do great things.
I am reminded that God is not a man that He should lie. I am reminded that His word does not return void. And so, I want to remind you of the same thing. God is not a respecter of persons. Seek Him for your future. Find out what He has in store for you. I assure you, it will be exceedingly, abundantly, above all you could ask or think.
