TODAY’S PROPHETIC WORD
Enter into My joy this day and partner with Me to serve. Watch how the power of the Holy Spirit is released through you as I see My face in the ones you serve.
RELEASE THE MIRACULOUS
It’s in the context of serving that the miraculous is unleashed. Serving is powerful because it is fruit-based. Fruit is when heaven shows up. Jesus said that His Father is glorified when we bear much fruit (John 15:8). Serving is about results and fruit is heaven’s result.
Serving is also powerful because it’s faith-based. Mother Teresa is famous for saying, ‘I always saw the face of Jesus in every leper I ever cleansed.’ She cleansed the festering, nasty wounds and treated them like royalty as if they were Jesus.
There are two ways you can receive this. When you’re serving someone, you can either treat them the way you’d treat Jesus or you can treat them as if you are Jesus. You partner with the Lord both ways and it’s not blasphemy. It’s partnership to literally be His hands and feet. Isn’t this how Jesus trained His disciples?
“Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.” – Matthew 25:40
We are the only hands and feet of Jesus the world is going to see. If the only face of Jesus the world sees is a mean face, or a racist face, or an accusatory face, we’ve missed the mark. What’s real is, we ought to blow peoples’ minds with how we serve.
We have the privilege of being the face of Jesus to everyone we come in contact with each day. God trusts us with that. In the Gospels, Jesus modeled what serving Him looks like. One of the last acts of servanthood He performed right before He went to the cross was to wash the disciples’ feet.
“If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet.”—John 13:14
The creator of the universe humbled Himself and gave us an example in which to follow. Let’s you and I follow Him and serve. I give you permission to release the miraculous in your life and the lives of others by serving Jesus.
