WARRING WITH YOUR PROPHETIC WORD by Elaine Tavolacci
Warring With Your Prophetic Word
In the book of First Timothy, Paul was encouraging Timothy to wage a good warfare concerning the prophecies that were given to him. He wouldn’t have told him that if he wasn’t going to experience spiritual warfare. Every one of us has received a word from God either through a personal prophetic word, or the bible. The Holy Spirit is showing me that many of you have become disheartened because that prophetic word has not yet come to pass. For some of you it has been months, and for others it has been years that this promise has not manifested in the natural. There is a process between the time that we receive the word, until the word comes to pass. The bible says in 1 Timothy 1:18 that we are to wage a good warfare with that prophecy, and to fight the good fight of faith.
The Holy Spirit gave me this analogy of two trees. Two distinct seeds were planted in the same field and at the same time. The first seed was a cherry blossom tree seed and the other was a sequoia tree seed. Each seed had the same care as they were both provided the same sunlight and water. The cherry blossom tree grew quickly and flourished beautifully with brilliant pink flowers and bright green leaves, but the seed of the sequoia tree seemed to be taking a long time to show any signs of growth. As time went on, the cherry blossom tree continued to grow and flourish but the sequoia tree seed didn’t appear as if it was going to amount to anything. After some time the sequoia tree began to grow towering over the cherry blossom tree and multiplied in size, surpassing the cherry blossom tree in height, width and overall proportion.
The reason why the sequoia tree took longer to grow was because it required stronger and deeper roots to support its tremendous size. Neither tree was insignificant, but each one served their purpose. Although the cherry blossom tree was beautiful to the eye, the sequoia tree grew to be the tallest and strongest tree in the world. In the same way, some of you have promises that are taking longer to come to pass because they are more extensive and wide range. Don’t let go of the prophecy that has been given to you no matter how long it takes. Your promise will come into fruition just as these two seeds which were planted. Every one of us, and every promise is unique and exclusively designed. When His word comes to pass in its appointed time, you will see the vastness of it and you will be amazed at what Jesus has done in your life and ministry.
1 Timothy 1:18
This charge I commit to you, son Timothy, according to the prophecies previously made concerning you, that by them you may wage the good warfare.

1 Timothy 6:12
Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
1 Timothy 6:20-21
O Timothy! Guard what was committed to your trust, avoiding the profane and idle babblings and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge- by professing it some have strayed concerning the faith.

A TURNAROUND FOR YOU..
A word by Dana Jarvis
I decree you are making the spiritual journey from the bondage of Egypt into your promised land of destiny. I know you have grown weary. Do not let the murmurings and complaining attitudes rule you. It causes the faith to waiver! Your focus is upon the cup of bitter waters that you are currently drinking from.
Rest assured that your God is making these bitter waters sweet!
You shall taste and see that the Lord is good! You are going to see such extravagance in your daily life. He is delivering much into your hands so reach up and take hold. Just as he was with you before, he is with you now. You are going to drink deep of the Living Waters. The bitter waters of life have tried to steal all joy.
However I hear the Lord say, “It is done, I am the Lord who heals you. I am the Lord who will restore you. I am the Lord who will provide your every need. I am the One that is making the bitter waters sweet!”
I feel so strongly that God is removing your cup of bitter waters you have had to drink for so long. He is causing a turnaround for you in a situation that you desperately need him to move. I am speaking to several and know this word is for you. Even as the Lord led Moses and the children of Israel from their bondage at the Red Sea, it still took one step of faith. One step of faith is all it takes to cause a release from all of this. Take a moment and sow into good ground by giving into Spirit Fuel. For just a contribution of $25, $50, or even $100 or more given into Spirit Fuel is an active step and good ground on which to sow. It is a powerful ministry reaching the world for Christ. As you sow that offering, it is that act of faith that will cause the Red Sea where you are standing to part in your life. The bitter cup will be removed and the sweetness of the Lord shall begin to flow!
