TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
I know your dreams. They are gifts from Me put in your heart before time began. It’s time to put away childish things and rise up. Your full potential has yet to be reached.
WHEN YOU ACT LIKE JESUS
You and I weren’t made to live our lives in comfort and safety attending Bible studies and planning potlucks. Nope. Jesus made you to be the solution to someone else’s problem.
You see, in the wilderness, God is the solution to all your problems. You just follow Him and He takes care of you. While that sounds great to a lot of you, it really isn’t. It’s like being a child who never grows up. It’s actually a curse to act like a kid when you’re a grown man.
You were designed for the Promised Land. You were made for conquest and construction. You take territory from the enemy and build on it because, in the Promised Land, you are the solution.
In your lives you must think and act like Christ Jesus. Christ himself was like God in everything. But he did not think that being equal with God was something to be used for his own benefit. – Philippians 2:5-6
He says, “I send you out as lambs among wolves.” He doesn’t send you into safe places where you can figure everything out. He sends you into deep places and He’s trusting you to be rock-solid about His love toward you and yours toward Him – even when you don’t have a clue what you’re doing.
Here’s what’s real: It’s OK to be clueless when you’re off your map and into uncharted territory. Never prophesied over a stranger before? It’s OK. Just do it and Jesus will give you the words. Never laid hands on the sick and declared healing in Jesus’ name? It’s OK. The results are God’s, not yours.
Comfort kills and safety swallows hopes and dreams. Step into the Promised Land and be the solution someone else has been waiting for. They’ll see Jesus when you act like Jesus.
