TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
While I Am the same yesterday, today and for eternity, that is not My plan for you. You were made to grow and change, to mature and transform. Do not fear this process. My promises are worth striving for.
YOUR FINISH LINE
I can’t tell you how important it is to understand that the depth of your relationship with Jesus determines the depth of your intimacy with Him. Likewise, the depth of your intimacy with Him determines the secret that is revealed to you.
The reason so many people in the Body of Christ do not know what I’m telling you is because religion has taught them that everything is about getting saved. It’s true. Religion tells us when we get saved everything will be great as if Jesus never said,
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” – John 16:33
There is faith unto salvation, but there’s another world of promise you’re qualified for once you get saved. The key to unlocking those promises is intimacy. If you never move from being a child of the King to a servant, then a friend, then a bride, you’re not living the fully redeemed life Jesus died to offer you.
Let me say it this way: if you halt between two opinions –as the Bible says – then you’re going to live a bipolar Christian lifestyle. What about the sin in your life? If you’re saved, you are qualified to displace it.
You’re qualified to walk in the Promised Land, confront a stronghold that’s always been in your life and say, “Come down, in the name of Jesus.” You’re qualified to walk right up to a giant and say, “Die, in the name of Jesus. You don’t rule me.”
But you don’t qualify for that if you ain’t saved. So, get yourself saved and become part of God’s family. It takes time and communication to build a relationship and Father God is no exception. The more effort you put into it, the more promises you’ll see fulfilled.
Do you want the keys to your promise? Do you understand your identity and how it is connected to your destiny? You won’t find these things in comfortable places. Go after the heart of God. Give Him your time and attention and let salvation be your starting point – not your finish line.
