TODAY’S PROPHETIC WORD
The Lord is working through you to become who He intends you to be. Cooperation is necessary to maintain a posture of integrity and move into your next upgrade.
When you are blessed by God and begins to prosper in business, ministry, relationships, school or whatever endeavor you choose to glorify Him through, you will have haters. People will be jealous and want what you have.
Know this: they have only partial eyesight. They can’t see that, for all your blessings, you’ve had to go through a lot of hell to get what you have. They see your glory, but they don’t see your story.
Here is a great rule of thumb when it comes to being suspicious or envious of those who seem to be better off or more blessed: If the grass looks greener on the other side of the fence, you can be sure their water bill is higher than yours.
This is true in the natural, as well as the spiritual. There is no such thing as a great man or woman of God without great affliction.
Look in the Bible. You don’t find a single awesome person of God who didn’t have a major malfunction to deal with every day. When cursed people see blessed people, they don’t see the price they had to pay each and every day to maintain that blessing.
An overweight person might dislike someone who is fit and in shape, but they don’t consider the choices that skinny person makes every day to look like that. It’s really this simple! If you want what someone else has, be willing to pay the price they paid to get it. If not, change what you want to what you’re willing to pay for.
Want what God has for you. It’s better than what He has for me because it’s something uniquely tailored for your life. If your haters don’t understand this principle and they attack your character and calling, continue to be a purpose-driven person and know you’re in good company. The world hated Jesus and it hates us as Christians because we bear a family resemblance.
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.
– Matthew 5:16
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO CALL YOURSELF BLESSED BECAUSE THE WORLD HATES YOUR SUCCESS. IT FIRST HATED JESUS AND HE CHANGED THE COURSE OF MANKIND. CONTINUE TO GO AFTER YOUR PURPOSE IN THE FACE OF PERSECUTION AND GLORIFY GOD.
