Keys for Tapping into Your Promises – A Word by Christy Johnston
Are you still in transition? Or have you been seeing 11:11 or 12:12 all the time? Numbers are prophetic in nature because in Hebrew they carry significant meaning, and I wanted to give you some key scriptures and promises that are prophesying into your life right now if either of these two numbers are being highlighted to you or if you are finding yourself in transition.
Take Possession of the Land.
11:11 often signifies transition. Nate and I, and many other prophetic voices have been saying it all year, that it has been a year of transition. Many are standing at the crossroads of the eleventh hour, waiting for supernatural intervention. For some, you may have already crossed over into your promise, for others, you may still find yourselves in the hallways of transition. I want to encourage you, that as we crossed into the Hebraic new year of 5780, I personally felt a shift in the heavenly realm. I believe there is significant momentum about to take place for many who have been in the ‘waiting,’ your doors are about to open. I also want to remind you of a word I wrote a week ago, about the keys in the door. You can read it here: https://nateandchristy.co/the-door-is-ready-to-open/
But the land you are crossing the Jordan to take possession of is a land of mountains and valleys that drinks rain from heaven.
Faith Taps into the Promise
It does not matter how impossible your situation may look right now, the key is, resting in the One who has promised you. He is faithful to deliver. So how do you tap into His faithfulness? Look beyond your natural eyes and see with your spiritual eyes, keep your eyes fixated there. Speak the promises He has given you and thank Him for the answers ahead of time. Speak words of faith and not doubt. Sarah’s faith EMBRACED the miracle power to conceive the child, despite the natural impossibilities. We live in a higher realm and God is teaching you how to operate in this realm, by faith. Many despise transition, but I encourage you, if you will not lose sight of the promise, keep your eyes, ears and mouth fixated on what you see with your spirit, keep declaring what God has promised and you too will conceive the impossible in your own life. The training you have learnt in this period of time has prepared you to take possession of the inheritance that is awaiting you.
Hebrews 11:11 tpt
Sarah’s faith embraced the miracle power to conceive even though she was barren and was past the age of childbearing, for the authority of her faith[a] rested in the One who made the promise, and she tapped into his faithfulness.
Worship engages supernatural strength.
Eleven can also represent confusion, and I don’t mean that in a negative way, but transition can often feel like confusion. Yet, spiritually speaking, as the clock ticks over to twelve, the Hebrew meaning for 12 is divine order and alignment. Transition and waiting on the promises can sometimes feel overwhelming, exhausting, confusing and even disheartening. Particularly when it feels delayed or as though what you are praying doesn’t seem to be happening. This is how you can find encouragement and strength in the midst of it all: through worship. Lift up your tired hands in thanks to Him. You will find your heart beginning to soar again with supernatural strength as you do. Worship is what carries you across the threshold into divine alignment. I love how when the Israelites passed over the Jordon river into their Promised land, that the presence of God in the ark of the Covenant was held in the middle of the waters. It speaks of standing in the middle of His river, His presence, and finding refreshment in Him and He is the one who creates a pathway through impossible currents. He is the One who holds back the raging waters. Create space in your day to enter into His presence more than you ever have before. It is the key to unlocking the doors of your promised land.
Colossians 1:11 And we pray that you would be energized with all his explosive power from the realm of his magnificent glory, filling you with great hope.[a]
So be made strong even in your weakness by lifting up your tired hands in prayer and worship. And strengthen your weak knees.
You are not alone.
Finally, one of the biggest lies the enemy whispers to us in transition is this: ‘you are alone’. When in fact, there is a MASS migration taking place across the entire body of Christ right now. Millions of believers are finding themselves in this transition of moving into the promise. This transition is bigger than you alone, it is for a great unveiling that is about to take place across the earth. God is moving His people into positions of authority, moving them into the right locations and assignments in order to prepare for what is about to take place: the harvest of the earth. You play a SIGNIFICANT role in what is about to unfold, so be encouraged. He who has promised, is faithful. Your inheritance is yours, and it is for His unveiling.
Ephesians 1:11 Through our union with Christ we too have been claimed by God as his own inheritance. Before we were even born, he gave us our destiny; that we would fulfil the plan of God who always accomplishes every purpose and plan in his heart.
