Silk: Tarries Not

The name of your silk is Tarries Not. The colors in it are:

  • Seafoam green representing mercy
  • Lavender representing peace
  • Fuchsia representing joy

The scriptures that go with it are:

  • Habakkuk 2:3 (AMP) “For the vision is yet for the appointed [future] time It hurries toward the goal [of fulfillment]; it will not fail. Even though it delays, wait [patiently] for it, Because it will certainly come; it will not delay.
  • Psalm 37:9 (VOICE) Besides, those who act from evil motives will be cut off from the land; but those who wait, hoping in the Eternal, will enjoy its riches.
  • Psalm 27:14 (AMPC) Wait and hope for and expect the Lord; be brave and of good courage and let your heart be stout and enduring. Yes, wait for and hope for and expect the Lord.

God’s timing is perfect, but for you this time may feel like it’s long overdue! But there’s a pattern in scripture where the Father bears with us long to move suddenly. Like Habakkuk 2:3 says, “For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.”

The word “wait” is defined by Merriam-Webster as “to anticipate, look eagerly for, hope, expect, linger for.” A we wait for the vision, we wait on Him. Tarry with Him. Let’s consider what that looks like a little more.

Waiting on the Lord. Lingering on Him. Linger means to tarry on, give extended time to, even to saunter. This makes me think of warm summer evenings just laying in the grass and talking softly with someone. Totally unaware of time. Just resting in the moment. Taking it all in and not wanting it to end. And the Lord wants that kind of moment with us. Selah. Those are precious intimate moments… in these moments we are restored (of good courage) and strengthened in our hearts – our inner man. Being at peace, even as we anticipate what is to come.

Waiting on the Lord. Anticipate the Lord, eagerly looking for Him. Watching for His leading. An active wait. Ready to jump into action. Like a doctor on call or a fireman on duty, ready to jump at a moment’s notice. Staying alert, ready to be put into motion if the Holy Spirit nudges you.

Wait on the Lord. Hope on Him. He is our inheritance. Remain in expectation for the fulfillment of His promises. Hope in Him. To cherish a desire with expectation, our desire being the Lord. To cherish the Lord with expectation. Expect in the Lord. Expect Him to be faithful. Expect Him to protect. Expect Him to have my best interests in mind. Expect Him to be mindful of all my needs. To place confidence or trust in the Lord. Hope in Him. Wait on Him. This can be the most difficult part of waiting since “though it tarries, it tarries not” – it can feel like we’re waiting in vain, but He who has promised is FAITHFUL.

So our expanded version of Psalm 27:14 considering the definition of “wait” could be, “Wait on the Lord. Tarry with Him. Linger with Him. Find strength in Him. Be built up in Him. Be restored in your inner man. Again I say, wait on the Lord. Anticipate Him. Eagerly watch for Him. Hope expectantly in Him. Put your full confidence in Him. Cherish Him with expectation.”

A word called “I Am Never Late” from June Reinke of Prophetic Light is also connected to this silk.

I Am never late, says the LORD. You can depend upon My promises being fulfilled. I Am not looking for an excuse not to give you what I said belongs to you. I have not deceived you nor given you any false hope. When I give you MY WORD, I keep it. I will not break covenant with you! You will embrace that which I have declared is yours and nothing will keep ME from honoring My promises to you. A promise is a promise. MY WORD IS MY WORD. MY WORD is in total agreement with My Will, and My Word will NOT be altered or watered down. It is precise and will be performed exactly as I have spoken, for MY WORK will be in complete alignment with MY WORD, says the LORD.

Hold onto MY Word and do not let it go, says the LORD. Do not wallow in unbelief. For your faith pleases Me. Be steadfast and unmovable in your trust in Me at all times. For I will honor your faith. I will honor MY WORD, and I will honor those who honor ME! Be patient and wait on Me, for you are not going to be able to make things happen. You do not have to try to make My Word work for you. That is what I DO! Let ME give you the fulfillment of MY promises to you as you entrust everything to ME. For when you take matters into your own hands rather than leaving things into My hands, it only complicates things for you. I Am NOT creating unsolved mysteries for you to resolve. I Am not taking you round and round in circles or creating problems for you just so that I can solve them. I have not put you on hold or given you a detour. Your times are in My hands and as you entrust your total care to Me, you will see things unfold for you and you will embrace that which I have spoken concerning you, for I will bring it to pass in My prescribed time and way, and I will perfect that which concerns you and you will be completely furnished for every good work that I have called you to do, says the LORD.

It has been prayed over and anointed with the Scent of Heaven’s Wait Upon the Lord.  The deeper meaning of this oil is, “His timing is perfect and our character and trust is stretched and built as we wait upon Him. It is a discipline that He counts as invaluable. The right action in the wrong timing is disobedience. We must listen – ready to act upon His direction. It is an active waiting – not passive. It’s an expectant waiting – a readiness for Him to move at any moment as we wait upon Him.”

The scripture that goes with this oil is from Isaiah 40:31, “But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”

We pray it blesses you!
