“And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” John 1:14 KJV
As a Tribe called StrongNation, we have walked this path for about eleven months together and I can truthfully say God has been good to us. We’ve taken on the unusual and despite all odds, God has come through for us. No doubt we have every cause to be grateful and indeed we are.
Our last Total Praizze: Songs of Thanksgiving really touched me in places I never knew existed. Following the event and considering everything, I wondered “how does one beat this?” I could hear God respond in my spirit saying, “You ain’t seen nothing yet”. The question, “how?” lingered in my heart. Remember StrongNation was birthed and anchored in prophecies, twenty two to be exact (Isaiah 60:1-22). I believe He has not established us for mediocrity, otherwise He would not have given us such a distinctive and challenging name.
Our first year anniversary is just around the corner so it’s time to take a considered look at those twenty two glorious prophecies. God says it time we lived up to our name or ‘what do you think?’. Romans 10:10 says, “we believe with the heart and declare with our mouth”. God has given us His Word, we need now to start commanding ‘those things that be not as if they were’ (Romans 4:17).
Remember the birth of StrongNation was not without its challenges, but God came through because we believed, declared and a nation, StrongNation was born 20th May, 2018. The same way I am encouraging you to go back to those prophecies, taking each one and believing God to come through. Each prophecy is so mind blowing, it will put doubt into the heart of the natural man. But we’re not natural, we are SUPERNATURAL, indeed we are StrongNation!
I can feel a stirring in the womb, I can see through the ultrasound of the supernatural the gestational period of each prophecy is at end. This is the ‘fullness of time’ at least for this period of the journey. It is time the Word became Flesh, so that we can behold the glory and faithfulness of God.
I believe with all my heart that we ain’t seen nothing yet, exciting times are ahead. However, things of lasting value do not come without some effort, so it is time to wrap those prophecies in coats of faith so that the Word can become Flesh. God is the one in us both to will and do of His good pleasure. We are StrongNation created in Christ Jesus to walk in the path that God has ordained before Time.
