TODAY’S PROPHETIC WORD
Jesus is calling out to you saying, “I love you! Trust in me! Walk with me! I’m your Rock! I’m your strong tower! I will give you rest in the midst of your business! I will prosper the work of your hands! I will redeem the time that has been stolen from you! Trust only in me!
LIVING IN THE DAYS OF MIRACLES
These are the days!
If you ask 100 people to define the days we’re living in, you’ll get 100 different responses. For the unemployed, they are fiercely competitive days. For those in the military, they are troubling days. For the businessman, they are likely days of opportunity. Ask any Bible thumping Christian to describe the days we’re living in and they’ll likely tell you “the Last Days.”
I agree that the time is short. I also believe the best descriptor of the times we live in would be “busy days.” Does time seem to go by faster than it used to? I’ll tell you why these are fast and furious times: technology.
Fifty years ago, people didn’t travel as far or as often. They knew only a handful of people, and likely talked long distance on the phone only on Sunday evenings when the rates were low. There were only three or four television stations. They all played the national anthem at 2 p.m. then cut to the “bug races” until 5 p.m. It’s not like that anymore.
Through technology, mobile devices and a 24-hour news cycle, you are aware today of more murders and scandals in one week than people in the 1960s knew in a lifetime. You travel more miles and talk to more people, thanks to cell phones, email and Facebook. We live more life in a year than those before us lived in an entire lifetime. We’re just busy.
No wonder you’re worn out! If you’re not careful, the busyness of your life will keep you oblivious to the special days the Lord has given you, and you could miss incredible opportunities.
“See that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil.” – Ephesians 5:15-16
If you want to redeem or “cash in” on the day you are living in, the Bible says to “walk circumspectly” – aka: know what’s going on around you.
In every generation, lifetime and point in history, there are windows of opportunity where the timing is perfect for your life to be changed. There is opportunity for you to make a maximum impact on the world around you and for God to get maximum glory.
God is moving like never before and most people don’t even know it. They are busily focused on themselves. These are the days of miracles. Have you seen one? Do you need one?
Just know that God is still in the miracle business, so don’t be afraid to ask your Father in Heaven when your back is against the wall.
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO SLOW DOWN. BE AWARE OF WHAT’S GOING ON AROUND YOU AND LOOK FOR THE MIRACLES IN THE MADNESS. THEY ARE THERE IF YOU ARE WILLING TO LOOK. LOOK FIRST IN THE MIRROR!
