TODAY’S PROPHETIC WORD
Consistent, continuous interaction with the Father through His Son in the Spirit is what makes the difference between being connected or becoming distracted. He loves you. Don’t get all formal and religious. However, don’t be so casual that you forget who you’re talking with.
AN ANCIENT WONDER
The Chinese were so afraid of being invaded from the warring nations to the north, they built a 6,000 mile wall to protect themselves.
One of the ancient wonders of the world, it was so high, no one could get over it. It was so thick, nobody could tear it down and so long that few wanted to go around it. When it was finished, the Chinese went home to enjoy their new security.
However, within 100 years, China was invaded from the north three times. The invaders didn’t go over or around the wall. All they had to do was bribe the gatekeepers and they marched right through the massive structure.
Amazing! Find one person who is not covenant minded and the wall became irrelevant. It’s like that with our lives. If we don’t value covenant, our minds, marriages and money will be taken over by invaders.
You see, covenant – a sacred promise between God and you – is the only thing in the world that will cause God to respond to you. What?!? You heard me. The only reason God acts on your behalf is because He promised to when you got saved and became part of His spiritual family.
God does not respond to poverty, trials, sickness or pain. That is what we humans signed up for when we turned against Him in the garden. If God did respond to those things, every coal miner in Virginia would be Billy Graham.
So what does God respond to? Faith according to His covenant.
To base your relationship with God on covenant – a “no matter what” mindset – you need to think on this: Your job is to glorify God no matter what!
Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.
– 1 Corinthians 10:31
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO TRUST GOD TO KEEP HIS COVENANT OF MERCY WITH YOU. KEEP YOUR SIDE OF THE DEAL BY GLORIFYING HIM WITH EVERY ASPECT OF YOUR LIFE, NO MATTER HOW SMALL!
