Prophecy: Same Season, Different Outcome—Expect God’s Favor!

by | Dec 21, 2018 | Blogs, Prophetic Fire

Recently the Lord has been speaking to me about similar seasons with totally different outcomes. In the natural, we have four different seasons, and often many people will assume that this winter will be just like last winter. People assume their summer next year will be like their summer this year or that next year will be just like last year. But it’s not like that. Every season will be different from the previous one, even though they are similar.

You may be experiencing a season right now that looks like other seasons you’ve walked through before, but you need to expect a different outcome. Expect things to turn out differently than they did before! Expect the outcome to be in your favor, because God is turning things around for you.

Many times, people will start moving forward with what God has promised them and called them to do, and then they will encounter a similar situation or circumstance that they’ve been through in the past, and they’ll quit. Don’t let a similar situation or circumstance keep you from moving forward. Do not quit, because I’m telling you, my friends, this season may be similar, but the outcome will be different.

I was recently speaking with a man at a conference where I was ministering. He was telling me about four different businesses he had launched, and each of them immediately took off. But after two years, in each business, something would happen, and they would have to close down. He shared with me that they had launched a 5th business and they were hitting that two-year mark and feeling like they were going to have to close down again. I prayed with him for his business, and we believed together that even though the business was in a similar season, there would be a different outcome. Months later, I was back in their city, and I spoke with them, and they were celebrating Year 3 in their business. They hit a plateau, and some obstacles that they had experienced with their other businesses, but this time they pushed through, and their business was thriving.

You may feel like you are going around the same mountain over and over and over again, but this time, things will be different. Psalm 97:5a says, “Mountains melt like wax in the presence of the Lord.” Invite the Holy Spirit into whatever you are facing, whatever season you are in, and determine, “I am not going around this mountain anymore!” Many of you have been doing the same thing, season after season, with the same results. Instead of going around the same mountain over and over again, you need to start speaking to that mountain and command it to melt like wax in the presence of God.

I was recently speaking with some other ministers, and they were saying, “You know how it is; it’s right after Thanksgiving, and normally at this time of year, we don’t get booked to minister anywhere.”

I responded back, “Guys, I’m sorry, but I’ve never been this booked this time of year as I am right now.” I am traveling more in these last couple of weeks of the year than I have before. Why? Because I declared that I will not have a dry season, and I will go anywhere the Lord wants to send me. I love spending time with my family during the holidays, but I also want to keep doing what God has called me to do.

Many times, we will experience whatever we are expecting. So my question to you today, my friends, is this: What are you expecting? Are you expecting increase in your business? Are you expecting financial breakthrough? Are you expecting restoration and healing to come to your and your family? Whatever you are expecting, be encouraged, it is going to happen, and God is going to do everything He said He would do. Remember, you may be in a similar season, but expect and believe for a different outcome. {eoa}
