TODAY’S PROPHETIC WORD
God is doing a new thing around you. He is placing people you would not expect to come around you and gird you up when you need it most. Don’t let preconceived ideas keep you in a box.
BREAKING THE BOX
Forfeiting your upgrade because you refuse to conform your life to match God’s will is a huge mistake, and one that many of us make without ever realizing it. Look at King Saul. He disobeyed a clear and direct order from God so he could do things his way. It cost him everything!
A simple understanding of how this works will help you get out of your box and into a better place where upgrade can happen.
Know this: Forward is not in the confines of what we are used to. Forward needs to be learned, pursued and conformed to.
Moving forward after kingdom upgrade will require you to work with teams when you’re naturally a lone wolf individualist. It requires you to go through some things alone when you wish you could party with your friends.
Better will require you to lay down what you think is a big deal and prioritize what you haven’t really cared about before. You may have to lay down something you’ve always considered precious – relationships, mindsets and habits which are holding you back from fully following Jesus. You know what they are, so write them down.
If you are going to move forward and advance into upgrade, God says you have to be that guy. In fact, He says that you already are that guy! You just have to chisel away the parts that don’t look like Him!
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, But fools despise wisdom and instruction.
– Proverbs 1:7
Take that list and lay down the things that are keeping you from reaching your purpose. When you do, that is called wisdom. It’s what Saul rejected and Solomon asked for.
Wisdom is a huge part of your ongoing move into better, so be wise and get rid of the foolish things in your life.
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO BREAK OUT OF THE BOX OF FOOLISH THINKING. MAKE THE WISE DECISION TO PUT ASIDE THE THINGS THAT KEEP YOU FROM MOVING FORWARD TO GOD’S PURPOSE FOR YOUR LIFE.
