TODAY’S PROPHETIC WORD
Remember the great things God has done for you as you press in and go deeper. The Kingdom is about progression and progression always moves forward. The Lord says to you, “Behold, I am doing anew thing. I will even put a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert” (Isaiah 43:19). He is God of your past, present and future.
AN EYE FOR GREAT THINGS
Looking back is often dangerous, especially if it causes you to limit God’s power in the present and future.
An alternative to glorifying an era, or saying, “We’ve always done it this way,” is to have a proper view of the past. In other words, take a good look at how great God has been in the past. When you look for Jesus in your past, you learn to see Him in your present and future.
Do you see the times He saved you from disaster? The blessings or favor He provided? Did He give you direction when you had none, or provide a miracle you will never forget?
Remembering how Jesus worked in your past is key to recognizing how He is working in you today and what He will do in your future. Sounds crazy, but think about the Cherubim — the tripped out angels that circle the throne of God.
Also in front of the throne there was what looked like a sea of glass, clear as crystal. In the center, around the throne, were four living creatures, and they were covered with eyes, in front and in back. The first living creature was like a lion, the second was like an ox, the third had a face like a man, the fourth was like a flying eagle. Each of the four living creatures had six wings and was covered with eyes all around, even under its wings. Day and night they never stop saying: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come.”
It’s strange enough that each one has four sides and four separate faces, but have you noticed the Word says their bodies are covered in eyes? Do you know why?
They literally see God in the past, present and future – all at the same time! Every time they circle the throne, they see how great God has been in the past, how great God is now, and how great He is going to be in the future. Living in eternity has its privileges!
I want to be like that. I don’t just want to see my past, I want to see how great God has been in my past! Once I see that, I want to see how great God is in every part of my life, forward from here!
TODAY IS A GREAT DAY TO SAY “HOLY, HOLY, HOLY IS THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, WHO WAS, AND IS AND IS TO COME IN MY LIFE! MOVE ME FORWARD LORD!”
