TODAY’S PROPHETIC WORD
God has blessings ready to pour out on you as you pursue His purpose for you. Just know that how He accomplishes His purpose through you does not always look like what you might expect. Be ready for unexpected opportunities.
THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS
“Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” is a well-known phrase in the United States Declaration of Independence. It is part of one of the most well crafted, influential sentences in the history of the English language.
I believe they are anointed words – God breathed – and if you think that’s hokey, well rain on you!
When those 55 men signed their “John Hancock” under the 55 words of the Declaration, they handed themselves a place of honor in American history and a death warrant by the British government.
You see, in their minds, the right to pursue one’s own heart and dreams outside of government shackles was so essential, that it had to come from God. They believed this so wholeheartedly, they were willing to die for it.
The true pursuit of happiness is a God thing because God loves it when we pursue Him and His purpose for us. He even blesses it.
The only finders in the Kingdom are seekers. The only people who get the answers in the Kingdom of God are those who consistently ask. Those who walk through supernatural doors to powerful upgrades are those willing to knock at the door until someone finally opens it.
But you, O man of God, flee these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, gentleness.
– 1 Timothy 6:11
Limp-wristed, milquetoast attitudes in the Kingdom tend to produce weak results. God may be a loving Father, but don’t forget He is also a Warrior King.
That pursuit of happiness? You have to go after it. Go after it against all odds and against what’s accepted as normal. Even if it doesn’t make sense, you have to be willing to pursue what is on your heart so God can bless it.
