TODAY’S PROPHETIC WORD
God is making a way for you to move into His specific plan. Be prepared to walk in unknown paths.
GUTS FOR HIS GLORY
Again, God is a God of process. If you can stomach the process, there is a monster payoff most people only dream about.
I am talking about the realization of God’s specific plan, purpose and yes, promises for your life. There is something much better for you and the Word clearly shows you how to get it.
Nobody just wakes up and finds themselves in the midst of God’s promises for their lives. If you see someone’s glory, don’t forget to check out their story. There has never been, and there never will be, a great man or woman of God without great affliction. Process is never easy, though it is rewarding.
Remember the three stages? They are Egypt, the Wilderness and the Promised Land. The reason for these three stages is not because God changes from stage to stage, but because we change! We catch the vision for our upgrade. We get a vision of a future with something better. We mature.
Within those three stages, there are lots of things which need accomplished within us before we can move on to the next level.
Take for instance money. If you’ve always been a slave to your finances and are drowning in a sea of debt, that mess is your Egypt. If you want out, ask God for deliverance, then WALK IN IT by making a plan for your money and bringing spending under control. Now, you’ve stepped into the Wilderness.
In the Wilderness, you continue to keep expenses under control and follow your financial plan (budget). You learn to trust God and you begin to tithe. You acknowledge the source of your money by giving it back to God to be used for His purposes. When you see the way you are blessed through tithing, you decide to give sacrificially over and above that 10 percent. Now, you’re stepping into the Promised Land.
In the financial Promised Land, your debt begins to melt away as your generosity to the poor and needy increases. You continue with your plan and keep your spending in check because the money you are giving away is actually being used to keep people across the world alive! In the Promised Land, you fight for them and God gives you even more financial freedom so you can give even more away!
Are you getting the picture? Want out of debt? Make a plan, stick to it and be a crazy giver. Process!
