TODAY’S PROPHETIC WORD
Look to the question for the answer. God is turning your mind upside down to give you a fresh perspective. Find Him in the places you never would have expected!
What if you didn’t need a disaster to run to the presence of God?
What if, right now, you began to thirst after a powerful, intimate experience with God?
What if you and I, right now, cranked up the value we have for hearing God speak?
What if you let your experience with God during tough times you’ve already gone through teach you that, in Jesus Christ, you have life, and you will never find it elsewhere?
What if you put your complete dependency in Him right now, no matter how blessed you are?
What if you were just as desperate for Him today as you were in any time you were devastated by a terrible circumstance?
The power and manifest presence of God would show up the same way in your Promised Land as He does in your wilderness, that’s what! Only it would be better because the whole thing would be initiated by your longing for Him instead of a reaction to a painful circumstance.
If you and I could manage that, I promise you, there would be answered prayers like we have never seen and supernatural breakthrough like we have never experienced. Chase after God in good times, not just during trials.
I will extol the Lord at all times; His praise will always be on my lips. I will glory in the Lord; let the afflicted hear and rejoice. Glorify the Lord with me; let us exalt His name together. I sought the Lord, and He answered me; He delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to Him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame.
– Psalms 34: 1-5
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO ASK, “WHAT IF?” WHAT IF YOU TRULY CHASED AFTER GOD EVEN WHEN LIFE WAS GOOD? TRY GOING AFTER HIS HEART WHEN YOU’RE BLESSED AND WATCH HIS BLESSINGS FLOW!
