TODAY’S PROPHETIC WORD
God is changing the atmosphere in your earthly domain. Receive it and notice the Presence of the Lord and His glory surrounding you.
THE EXPERIENCE OF GOODNESS
I’m an atmosphere fanatic. I haven’t always been like that. When I was a kid, everything I did looked like someone was moving hell and I was the very first load! I was a mess. My room looked like a 747 had failed a crash landing and my school locker was filled with unspeakable things that would grow and multiply in the dark.
There was very little order in my messed up world, and my world was messed up because of it. Maybe you can relate.
Something happened when I got saved. I began to appreciate the value of stewarding environments and creating atmospheres. Though I have a world famous case of ADHD, I have learned to be very intentional about the surroundings I keep myself in. I learned this from Jesus.
God created a beautiful garden for Adam and Eve to live in. He produced a fiery, thunderous environment on the mountain to bring Moses the law. He fashioned stillness to bring His intimate voice to comfort Elijah because the context of setting is very important to producing a specific outcome.
God knows this, but so does the devil.
Wherein in time past, you walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now works in the children of disobedience
– Ephesians 2:2
The Word says Satan rules the atmosphere. He is the spirit working in ungodly people and one of the ways he controls them is by controlling the atmosphere. Most people don’t realize they have given over a big part of their lives to the enemy because they willingly live in an atmosphere designed by evil.
How many churches taught the Bible in an atmosphere of judgement or superiority? How many daddies made sure their kids went to church, but when he came home from work, they walked on pins and needles because of an atmosphere of anger? How many wives have destroyed their marriages because they built an atmosphere of hostility and control over their husbands?
That’s not you. If it is, stop it. Repent and take an inventory of the atmosphere you’re not only living, but creating. It should look more like Heaven than hell.
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO PAY ATTENTION TO THE ATMOSPHERES YOU SPEND YOUR DAY IN. CHANGE THOSE YOU CAN, AND FLEE THOSE YOU CAN’T.
