The pressure you have felt is because you are about to give birth to what God has placed in you. Every birthing has labor pains/pressure until the moment you are told to Push. I’m telling you it’s time to push through in the spirit. There is a birthing about to take place and you need to press through, push hard, for the release of your promise is about to manifest. This is not the time to give up, this is not the time to be quite, and this is not the time to stop listening to the instructions given to you to guide you into the release of your promise. Man oh man even now writing this I’m getting fired up, because the pressure always means there is about to be a release.
The only time something builds up pressure without a release is when you let it fizzle out and lay dormant. It’s time to Press On and Press in your prayer life, in declaring the word over your promise, over your destiny, over your circumstances......... folks it’s time to roar loudly like the very ones who hold the victory in their hands, because that is exactly what has been given to you! For those that are pregnant with a promise, I declare that this is your season to push for the release.
Mary had to hold onto the promise given to her. The circumstances in Jewish customs surrounding a unwed mother, a virgin, and a woman betrothed to a man that did not intimately knew her could have caused enough pressure to drive most people into a place of fear or depression. But in the moment where the pressure and the thoughts could have spoke loudly, she quitted those voice only to hear what God was saying and her response was vital.
Luke 1:37-38 For with God nothing will be impossible.” Then Mary said, “Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word.”
In this birthing forth process it is vital to hold on to those Words spoken over you. Those prophetic words, those words of promise, those words that God has spoken directly to you that has birthed with in you the promise which you are about to release and step into.
