TODAY’S PROPHETIC WORD
As a father, I love to give you gifts – especially joy. Remember that joy is separate from happiness which disappears in an instant. But the joy that I give is a state of being. Keep your eyes fixed on mine, and you will always feel my joy in your heart.
You are so important to the Kingdom of Heaven. God’s desire is that you live life to the fullest. Day by day He reveals himself to you, but you only have a small window of time, a short opportunity to actually live out and personify the heart of Jesus toward you.
Jesus says, “Fear not little children, it is the Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.” Listen, He’s a good Dad to you and it is His great delight to bless you. He loves to watch you discover, then walk out the life He has for you.
The things you’ve missed in the past don’t matter anymore because He has unbelievable joy when you decide to walk in the thing He has called you to. The opportunities you’ve passed up don’t have anything on the incredible joy He has over you.
That’s the difference in living an epic life and living a nominal life.
We must decide right now that our lives are important and that we’re not going to live some plain Jane life that doesn’t make a difference. This doesn’t mean we will be celebrated on earth. There are people who live epic lives that the world will never celebrate.
Just because the world does not celebrate you doesn’t mean that heaven doesn’t celebrate you. You might not be a celebrity on earth, but you are celebrated in heaven.
“The LORD your God is in your midst, A victorious warrior He will exult over you with joy, He will be quiet in His love, He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy.” – Zephaniah 3:17
Living an epic life is believing that no matter the circumstances that surround you, you can have joy because you trust that God has everything under His control. The Lord has His hand on you guiding you through thick and thin.
Earthly recognition will fade away, but heaven will never stop rejoicing. Are you living an Epic lifestyle? Are you allowing God to take over even the smallest areas of your life? The wondrous plan He has is waiting for you with unspeakable joy. Take hold and believe it.
