Processed Into A Partnership

I don’t know what God spoke to you years ago that has still not come to pass. I don’t know what you have gone through that looks contrary to what God spoke to you. But this I do know, Isaiah told us how God works, “Remember the former things long past, For I am God, and there is no other;

I am God, and there is no one like Me, Declaring the end from the beginning,

And from ancient times things which have not been done, Saying, ‘My purpose will be established, And I will accomplish all My good pleasure’; Calling a bird of prey from the east, The man of My purpose from a far country. Truly I have spoken; truly I will bring it to pass. I have planned it, surely I will do it” (Isaiah 46:9-11). My friends, God starts with the finished product, shows us what it will look like, then He brings us back to the start and says, “Will you follow Me?” The Lord shows us where we are going then brings us to the starting line, so we can begin the journey.

Can you remember what God spoke to you about who you are going to be? Maybe it was a childhood memory, maybe it was a youth camp moment, maybe it was a coffee talk with God as a young adult, maybe it was more recent than that. But somewhere in your history, God showed you who you are going to be. I remember the day, the place and the person God used to show me who I was going to be. It was my 25 year anniversary as a Christian, but if I was honest I saw a glimpse of it when I was actually 25 years old, but that never panned out, so the Lord upgraded it and made it clear in 2014. Little did I know the next 8 years to date were going to not look anything like what He told me in 2014. Can I get a witness?

The reason is, because God was showing you, showing me the end from the beginning. If we said yes to what we saw, if we accepted the call He showed us, the process began to get us where He showed us we would be. Oh friends, it has been a process, a refining process, but we are looking more and more like Him the longer we are in the process. But the process is not for process sake, it has a product that God is going to manifest, a partnership people will see between us and God. He showed you the end from the beginning. You saw the end, not the start, keep going, there is an end, you have seen it and the end is what keeps you moving through the process.
