TODAY’S PROPHETIC WORD
Each new step you take is a step closer to what God has for your destiny. Don’t listen to the lies of the enemy because he will bring you under condemnation. Keep moving towards God and He will lift you up.
When my kids were taking their first steps and they fell after only a few inches, I didn’t scold them and tell them not to fall down again. No. I clapped and cheered, celebrated and shouted, “Check that out. He took a step. He’s moving forward! Isn’t that amazing!”
The point is not that you fell when you were trying to walk. The point is that you were actually doing it.
When good daddies (and mommies) celebrate these baby steps, their kids not only learn to walk and run, but to fly. You learned to move forward because you hadn’t learned to fear failure.
Picture your daddy giving you an ice cream cone. When he does, he is not telling you not to make a mess. He already knows there is going to be a mess and he is confident that he can handle the cleanup. Isn’t that great to know?
If you fear your mess will bring disapproval, you’ll never take that first bite even though he purchased it and handed it to you. This is where a lot of people are today — afraid to go after upgrade and chase the heart of God for fear of disappointing Him. Is that you? If it is, remember the old hymn:
“Come just as you are…”
Jesus loves a fixer-upper so give Him opportunities to work on you!
“And each one went straight forward; they went wherever the spirit wanted to go, and they did not turn when they went.” -Ezekiel 1:12
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO TAKE THOSE BABY STEPS TOWARDS SERVING YOUR KING AND FULFILLING YOUR DESTINY. GOD WILL BLESS YOUR MESS BY BRINGING YOU THE UPGRADE YOU SO BADLY DESIRE!
