When we hear God’s voice, we should allow our expectations in Him to arise!
In Ezekiel 37 God told Ezekiel toe speak to the bones and declare life over them. All the bones came together but there was no life in it. This is the time and place where most Christians will stop and think they did not hear the voice of God. We think we’ve heard God prophesy, but when things don’t turn out as we thought, we too often give up and end up falling short of reaching our prophetic destiny. We do not see the word that God has spoken to us coming to fulfillment.
It is one thing for there to be promise in our lives that we know is from God, but it is another thing for that promise to be performed in our lives. We cannot be a people who faint easily. Discouragement has no place in us as God’s people.
