An important key to seeing a prophetic promise from God come to pass is to begin by responding ‘Yes!’ to Him.

Have you ever been sent an invitation to a formal event like a wedding, and been asked to RSVP? The initials ‘RSVP’ come from a French phrase, which means ‘please reply’.

Once you have replied ‘yes’, that invitation becomes your pass, giving you access to enter the event. If you do not have your invite on hand, your name may be checked against a list.

Saying ‘Yes’ to God’s prophetic promise is a powerful first step you can take, to seeing that promise  fulfilled.


The Power of Saying ‘Yes’ to God’s Prophetic Promise

Prophetic PromiseGod gave Israel a prophetic promise. He said, ‘I am giving you the land of Canaan.’ In Numbers 13, we read that Moses sent 12 leaders into the land, to check it out and report back.

Joshua and Caleb responded, ‘Yes! We can certainly take this land with God’s help!’ (Num 13:30; 14:6-9)

However, the other ten spies expressed doubt. They said, ‘We cannot take this land. There are giants there who will certainly defeat us!’ (Num 13:31)

The doubtful ten turned the whole nation against God’s promise. Instead of saying ‘yes!’ their RSVP was ‘No, we don’t think so!’

As a result, an entire generation missed out on entering into the promises of God.


Honour God by Saying ‘Yes!’ to His Prophetic Promise

‘The Lord said to Moses, “How long will these people treat me with contempt? How long will they refuse to believe in me, in spite of all the signs I have performed among them?”’ (Numbers 14:11)

The people dishonoured God when they said ‘no’ to His promise.

It is time to check your heart and mindset concerning the promises of God. Today your Father says, ‘Don’t elevate doubt and fear above My Word and My prophetic promise to you.’

Honour God with a resounding RSVP ‘yes!’ to His prophetic promise for your life, family, church, ministry, business, and circumstances.


Your Response to God Determines the Outcome

A prophetic promise is not one-sided. God loves you and does not override your will, in order to perform what He has said He will do. Everything the Father does is in relationship and partnership with you.

As Prophet David McCracken says, ‘A prophecy is not what will happen; a prophecy is what God intends to happen.’

Fulfilment of a prophecy is conditional firstly upon our acceptance of God’s promise. It is then also dependent upon our relationship with God, our character, our choices, and our obedience to Him.

God’s call and promise for your life will be big. It will be out of your comfort zone. But it will resonate deep in your heart.

It is time to RSVP ‘yes!’ to God. What does this look like?

  • It means responding in faith, praying and speaking positively about God’s promise
  • It means testifying ahead of time of what God will do
  • It means taking action; walking in anticipation—taking positive steps towards the prophetic promise

God’s Promise Gives You Access

God’s word to Joshua was, ‘I will give you every place where you set your foot, as I promised Moses.’ (Joshua 1:3)

The prophetic promise from God was the only thing Joshua needed to access Canaan, the Promised Land. Once he said ‘yes’ to God, he needed to listen to God’s personal instructions, respond in obedience and step out in faith.

The story of Joshua is a reminder that no giant, no wall and no limitation can stand between you and God’s promise for your life.

The first step is to RSVP ‘yes’ to Him.

    Dear Helen, you are such a Wonderful Blessing to all the Body of CHRIST. Your Prophetic Teaching
    is always a constant source of Encouragement and Inspiration to so many of us, and I want to say Thank you for Revealing the Heart of GOD to us. I love this Teaching, I was so inspired to write a Poem this morning.

    JESUS Paved the Way for me
    For the Glorious Dawning of a New Day I can See

    Rivers Breaking forth in the Desert
    The Rose Bud begins to Blossom and Bloom
    Yes, the Glorious Dawning of a New Day will be Born Soon

    A Golden Pathway I can See
    A Pathway of Love, Hope, Strength and Victory

    Yes, my JESUS Paved the Way for me
    The Glorious Dawning of the New Day I See

    Poem by Irene Kyriacou

    1. I love it, Irene, thank you! Reminds me of one of my favourite passages..Isaiah 35
      And thank you for your encouragement. 🙂

  3. Thank you for such a great teaching I am so inspired by your insight in the Word of God, Now I can boldly say “YES’ to the promise of God to activate my spiritual Gifts that I may be able to serve in His Kingdom he is truly to impart in me unshakable faith that will move mountains and toss them into the seas.

  4. I saw in a dream, the general overseer of our church laying his right hand on me and praying prophetically: such a young man, such marvelous gifts; it’s time for those gifts to start manifesting. Even though I am facing serious spiritual warfare now, I believe it will surely come to pass, and that without delay.

    1. What an encouraging dream, Kenny! God is at work in your life, empowering you to press through the opposition and be all He has created and called you to be.

    MUM HELEN AM SO BLESSED TO EVER MET AND STILL READING THIS YOUR ARTICLES, MAY GOD BLESS YOU. I have two things that i need clearification from you, one is a revelation while the other is a dream. let me start with the dream;
    I HAD A DREAM BEING WITH A MAN OF GOD WELL KNOWN(Pr Chris) IN A VERY LARGE CONGREGATION. HE SPOKE FOR A SHORT WHILE AND GAVE ME THE MICROPHONE TO PREACH. I PREACHED FOR A WHILE(but i cant remember the topic) THEN WE JOINED AND SPOKE IN SOME TONGUES THEN EVERYONE STARTED DEPARTING. THEN I MOVED TO THE MAN OF GOD AND HE SAID TO ME ’‘ Its just the begining”.
    THEN I WOKED UP AND ON WRITING DOWN WHAT I DREAMED, THE HOLY SPIRIT I BELIEVE SPOKE TO ME AND GAVE ME SOME INSTRUCTIONS AND FROM THAT DAY I FEEL INWARD TEACHINGS FROM WITHIN AND I CONTINEOUSLY SEE DEVILS IN THE HOUSE IN MY DREAMS AND ALWAYS FEEL NEGATIVE PRESENCE WHICH MAKE ME UNABLE TO SLEEP.
    Now my question here is, AM I CALLED TO THE PROPHETIC AND CAN YOU HELP ME WITH PRAYER POINTS AGAINST THOSE SPIRITS??

    Secondly,that is a Holy Ghost visitation. It goes thus;
    In this month 26th, i heard a voice called me twice, but it was only the second time i perceived it was God. Then i went into His presence and He said this;
    “SON I AM THE LORD THY GOD SPEAKING TO YOU. I KNOW OF EVERYTHING YOU KNOW AND THINK ABOUT ME. I AM GOING TO START SHOWING YOU THINGS MORETHAN THOSE I HAVE SHOWED YOU BEFORE BUT I JUST NEED YOU TO REMAIN FOCUS, BE WITH ME AS I BE WITH YOU.
    I AM GOING TO BE USING NEW DIMENSIONS WITH YOU SO YOU MIGHT UNDERSTAND ME AND RECOGNISE MY WAYS WITH YOU…
    SOME OF THOSE I WILL SHOE YOU, YOU WILL KEEP THEM TO YOURSELF AND OTHERS YOU WILL SHARE THEM, I LOVE YOU”.
    Now my question is what should I do more now???
    Thanks for understanding and please i share this with you because you are out to help as I’ve noticed. Am waiting and stay blessed Mum H.
