Some of the petals from the bouquet of past revelations have begun to wither. It is time for a fresh word from the Lord for a new season.
I enjoy buying a fresh bouquet of flowers for Jan from time to time. I love the look on her face when I return home with a bouquet in hand. After a week or so, I can tell it’s time for a new bouquet. The luster and life of an existing bouquet begins to wither no matter how much water we add to the vase. At that point, I need to pay a visit to a florist.
While the Lord will issue prophetic words that will span centuries and even millenniums of time, most prophetic words have a shelf life. A word comes to us for a new job. A child is born, and a word is delivered to help a new mom who feels overwhelmed or a senior citizen wonders what their remaining days will look like. Specific words come in these instances to help us move forward with hope.
What was given as a word of hope to get us through a unique life experience will need to be revisited and redelivered in another form, so it remains fresh and applicable to each changing season of life. As the seasons of life change, so will the specific content and application of the prophetic words we will need to help us move forward.
Some days I bring home roses. Other days, I might purchase sunflowers or tulips. They are still flowers but in a different form. It is like the changing content of a word of encouragement given to us in the past. The new word contains the same encouraging content but in a different form.
Ask the Lord if it is time to receive a fresh revelation for a familiar prophetic word. He has an unlimited eternal floristry of encouragement waiting for delivery. Ask and He will deliver.
