This prophetic word is titled Launch.
Who is this word for? People that are in their birthing process right now. Specifically if you are a perfectionist or you operate with a spirit of excellence.
This is going to be very specific so you are going to know for sure if this is for you by the time you get to the end.
When you are birthing something in the spirit and before it even manifests in the natural there is time and process. You have to put everything together in preparation for what will manifest. As you get close to your due date, it becomes more laboring. Weariness. And, you just want it to be over so you can move on. Even on the day of the birth, some women can have hours upon hours of labor.
One thing is for sure, it is not fun in those final hours until you are looking at that baby. It feels like it is going on forever. Are you feeling like that now? Some of you have been feeling this for years. That is because you are in this process right now.
It’s great to want things to come out perfect. Everybody wants that. Don’t you know sometimes we are not in control in the final hours of delivery.
You are a perfectionist. You like things to be done a certain way and in a certain order. It has to be perfect. After all, you are involved in this and your name is associated with it. You have a reputation to maintain.
What some people would be ok with you are just going to notice that it is off and not right and you need to fix it before you can launch…before you can birth that thing.
Do you know who else knows that you are like this? The enemy.
He is going to use this to create delay for some of you. You will in essence cause your own delay because you are waiting until it is perfect before you launch it. So when you are ready to launch he’s going to walk by hold the right hand corner of that picture and move it just a hair. And you know, you have to fix it so you delay for a few days so you can fix it. Then he comes back and he holds the left hand corner and he moves it just a hair.
And every time you get ready to launch something is not going to be right. You fix that and then something else is now broken. Then you fix that and the next thing is now broken. Before you know it you are delayed 1 week, 2 weeks, 4 weeks, 3 months…you were ready 6 months ago but here you are still holding out for perfection. Then you are going to think about this “cool feature” and if you add that it would make all the difference. So you delay so you can add this one thing. All the enemy has to do is make sure something is off, it’s not quite perfect yet because he knows that is all it will take to make you back up, you back off. He can hold you hostage like this for a very long time.
When people ask how it’s going you say “I’m about 95% there”…but that was over a year ago!
The enemy is using your own spirit of excellence against you.
So what do you do? Launch it! With all the imperfections and then immediately start fixing it.
The enemy is not expecting you to launch it. Because it will be so out of character for you. You are catching him off guard. When you do, that is going to back him up and then you will be able to fix it very easily. What you couldn’t get right in 6 months will be fixed in hours. Because he lost! Defeated. Game over!
I’m not talking about something that is 50% ready. I’m talking about something that is ready to be launched that is in a never ending cycle of brokenness. What you are doing can probably function without it anyway.
You’ve heard of the 80/20 rule, well when you are a perfectionist your 95% is better than 80% of the people that are doing it. Selah.
I know even after hearing this some of you are still going to be thinking, it’s ok within a week it will be perfect. Until the week rolls around and it still isn’t. Then I pray the spirit of God will remind you of this post.

Have you ever seen a newborn baby? I’m talking just came out of the womb. They are not pretty.
They have to be cleaned up first and even then it takes awhile before some babies get cute. I don’t think the moms remember them like this. No, they remember them after they have clothes on and they don’t look so messy. Like one week later…
Some of you are not going to have “pretty births”. No, it will be messy! And by no means perfect. So you have to clean it up and nurture it, until it looks like what you envisioned…after you launch it.
Do not back up off of the promises of God because the enemy is using perfection to hold you hostage. You don’t want to be the inventor that never invented anything. Or someone with magnificent creative ideas that never created anything. You have ideas for days and have nothing to show for it. Some of you have babies that you’ve had in your womb so long that 2 years later you see someone else launching the same thing that was in your spirit. You know what happened? Second Choice stepped up to the plate. Please do something this year!
