Say ‘Yes!’ to God’s Prophetic Promise

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.

    Wow….. Thank you Helen,
    This is truly powerful! God is so good!
    Great message! Welcome back and I pray you were able to find rest and peace in the Lord.

    1. Helen Calder Post author

      Hello Tanika, thank you, it’s so good to hear from you!
      It’s been good to have a break from the online ministry and to have a rest too (although a little chilly here to get outdoors much!) I’m feeling recharged to head into the rest of this year now.

  2. Patricia Shaw

    God has said many times to me that I am a prophet. I reacted by thinking this calling is too high fo me but today i accept it and respond with a “yes.”

    1. Helen Calder Post author

      Wow Patricia, I love that! That is a very powerful step to God’s unfolding plan for your life. Be richly blessed.

    2. Nana

      Im having a same challenge Patricia and looking for someone to help me as a Mentor to usher me to the place where God wants me to be .

  3. Amy

    I don’t know how I found you (well, yes I do, it was God :), thank you so much for your ministry. God has been calling me and I’ve been so afraid to do it. I’m use to being in control of my life. But last year I completely surrendered my life to him…not my will any more, but his will. It has been an AMAZING, joy-filled year of learning to trust and obey him. And now he’s been calling me to prophetic ministry, and it’s so hard for me, because I don’t feel in control. Does this make sense? I’m scared when the Holy Spirit comes on me and gives me a word. Half the time I’m scared of how I am feeling, and the other half I’m scared to give it because it might be wrong. And then I feel bad after because I was scared and didn’t give the word. How do I move past this?

    1. Helen Calder Post author

      That sounds very familiar, Amy!
      I always say God has a sense of humour in choosing me for prophetic ministry. I had a career in accounting, and my nature is to have everything add up, be controlled and make sense. Prophecy is a journey of faith. Your faith to minister prophetically grows as you step out and say yes, and watch as miracles start to happen and people’s lives are touched, gradually you will increase in confidence.
      (God will always lead us outside our comfort zone though, that’s where growth happens, so there will often be an aspect of personal discomfort)

  4. George Willeboordse

    My RSVP is yes to a new business opening. Where I live now the work has dried up …as in shut tight. By Aug 31 I need to step in to new work. I say yes to a smooth transition to the new work without it causing financial heart ache.

    1. Helen Calder Post author

      George, I agree with you in prayer today, may the new business opening be revealed, in Jesus’ Name

    1. Helen Calder Post author

      Amen, Darryl. Come Holy Spirit, minister powerfully to this family.

  5. Tameka

    Thank You for being a vessel the LORD can work through! This message was very Powerful especially at this time in my journey with the LORD! I have received many many Prophetic Promises from the LORD, but didn’t know I had to respond to them!!!
    So today, my response to every Prophetic Promise from the LORD is “YES LORD YES”!!!!

  6. Irene Kyriacou

    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

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

  7. mike

    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.

  8. Kenny Aguda

    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. Helen Calder Post author

      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.

  9. Bechem Eyong G.

    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.

  10. pontsho

    yes , I did got the invitation and I was ignoring it but since I’m reading your articles I’m saying yes to the invitation.

  11. Christine

    On time message! I’ve been struggling in my marriage–I simply desire for my spouse to submit fully to God’s perfect will and not lead us through life on his own accord. I just left a 3-day conference, and on the third day, the speaker emphasized giving God a “yes.” I submitted to His will and plan for me to stay in my marriage in faith that there will be better days. Before I ever met my husband, it was prophesied that I would marry a pastor. I sought God fully regarding my husband because he was not who had been prophesied–but there was something “on” him. It has been prophesied and declared by our spiritual leader (after marriage) that God desires for him to walk fully in ministry. My husband gives God a “yes” but then takes it back. My “yes” this past weekend is that I will take the heartache, pain, and frustration of being married to someone whose spiritual walk is suffering (which reflects in how he treats his family) because of his refusal to submit. I have to pray him through it and not give up on him. God WILL be glorified. God said that my reward will be great. To see him walking fully in God’s purpose will be reward enough.

    1. Helen Calder Post author

      Christine, I believe God is doing something great in your life. What is on you will overflow onto your husband!
      Sometimes in marriage God brings us to the point of surrender, when we say, ‘if this is as good as it gets, I still choose this’ and we respect and pray for and bless our spouses, we let go and let God…Holy Spirit moves! He is so faithful.

  12. Yolanda

    Hi Helen! Your ministry is a complete blessing to the Body of Christ! I certainly praise God for you and Prophet McCracken. My husband and I are saying yes to God’s leading and provision for our own ministry facility. Three Men of God in 3 different regions within the span of 7 years has prophetically spoken that God was going to “GIVE ” us a worship facility. We are in our 7th year and the church building that we were faithful in renting, foreclosed and didn’t share with us that it had. We were then given 30 days to vacate and are down to 2 weeks as of today. We’ve searched and searched and have landed a city’s civic center that is welcoming us to lease for 3 years. Purchasing would be financially difficult in this season and the majority of commercial facilities in California DO NOT want church occupants. However, God is faithful and we put our total trust in HIM to lead us as did Abraham. Blessings!

    1. Helen Calder Post author

      Hi Yolanda, what an exciting journey you are on! Thank you for sharing, and I pray with you for your ongoing breakthrough in the area of a building facility.
      – Helen

  13. Pat Shaw

    Hello, yesterday I said yes regarding starting a Bible study in the building where I live. I am somewhat afraid because I am alone here and dont have anyone here to do it with me. I am retired now and feel the Lord wants me to do this. Im not a Bible scholar. I think I have to do this because I think it’s part of God’s plan for me.

    1. Helen Calder Post author

      It sounds wonderful, Pat! ‘Such confidence we have through Christ before God. Not that we are competent in ourselves…but our competence comes from God.’ 2 Cor 3:4-5

  14. Lillian

    God has spoken of a great marriage for me from different men of God and to me too and I say yeeeeess!!!!!
