Cindy Jacobs: Don’t Let Spirit of Delay Stop Your Dreams

by | Feb 27, 2019 | Blogs, Prophetic Fire

The Lord says, “My children, didn’t I tell you not to let your dreams die? Some of you are stuck because you have just said, ‘Well, that dream is gone.’ Didn’t I say there was a convergence of dreams? Didn’t I say that there were prayers that you have prayed that are all coming together?”

I feel an admonition from the Lord that many of you heard what He said, but you didn’t really believe it. The Lord shows me that there are many people in the body of Christ today who are heartsick. And your heart is so full of unbelief. You’ve gotten to a place where the spirit of unbelief has overcome you. In the name of Jesus, we bind and break the spirit of unbelief.

And the Lord says, “There’s nothing too hard for Me. If you stay stuck, then it will be because you did not apply My principles.”

I remember giving a word about binding the spirit of delay. I actually was on the phone the other day, waiting to get an answer from a credit card company, and I was just fidgeting, feeling so tired of waiting. And it was like the Holy Spirit touched me on the shoulder and said, “You know, you have authority over this.” So I bound that spirit of delay, and I’m telling you, that agent came on right away.

Another thing like that happened to me where I was delayed on a flight. We weren’t taking off, we’d actually waited on the tarmac for an hour, and it was the same thing. The Lord goes, “Now look, there’s a weather problem; you can take care of that. And there’s a problem going on right now with delays. So why don’t you just bind, take authority over the weather where you’re going to fly, and bind the spirit of delay?”

I used those tools God had given me, and so what happened? Well, the pilot got on, and said, “Oh, I want to tell you the weather patterns have changed. And we’re not going to be delayed any longer; we will make up the time.”

Now I want to say to you—there’s that spirit of delay. It’s stopping your dreams; it’s stopping this convergence. So the Lord says, “I want you to be spiritually astute. I don’t want you to just let life pass you by and assume this is a natural thing when we live in two kingdoms, the kingdom of darkness and the kingdom of light. The kingdom of darkness wants to stop your dreams, stop you from advancing, and the kingdom of light wants you to go forward; God’s power wants you to go forward.”

Father, we thank You, Lord, that we’re going to accept and we’re going to believe that nothing is impossible. There is a dream convergence going on; there is restitution going on; there is favor going on. Lord, we receive it, and we receive the spiritual intelligence, that spiritual quotient that we need to have, the SQs of our life.

And the Lord says, “You have emotional quotients, you have character quotients, but I want you to come up higher in the spirit realm and understand really what is happening around you.”

If you will do that, you’re going to see the promises of God begin to be answered over and over. Amen, God bless you. {eoa}
