Did you know that you prophesy all the time? Prophesy is simply speaking the vision before you see it. It’s talking about your future.
Kids do this all the time. A little boy will say, “I’m going to be a fireman.” He imagines himself as a fireman. He uses your garden hose to pretend he is putting out fires. And when he grows up, he goes into training to be a fireman and begins his dream job. All of the years he spent growing up, he was prophesying his future until he began to live it out. Kids have no problem speaking something until they do it.
Then we become adults and we throw all that out, or we do it negatively.
The words you speak about your life might be positive and based on God’s promises, or they might not be. If you are saying things like, “I’m going to have a terrible year,” or “I’m always sick and tired,” those words don’t line up with what God’s Word says you can have.
Now, you might be thinking, “Well, it’s true! I am always sick and tired!” That may be your reality today, but it’s not your future. Jesus teaches us that we need to have confidence that through Him we will have what we don’t yet see (Hebrews 11:1, NIV). That’s the definition of faith, according to Him.
So when you speak positive things over your life like, “I am healthy. I am prosperous. I am full of joy and peace,” it’s not that you are being dishonest. You’re just speaking the language of the spirit. You are prophesying over your life, or in other words, you are telling your life what it is now because of Jesus.
Jesus is a safe harbor
I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him.
If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32.
He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips.
I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS!
I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE!
