TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
My promises are “Yes” and “Amen.” Amen means “let it be done.” When you come into deeper relationship with Me, you qualify to hear both yes and amen. I Am offering you upgrade. Is your answer “Yes” and “Amen”?
YOU’VE BEEN INVITED
The place of intimacy and special privilege relationship with God is called the “secret place.” You don’t have to be a Bible scholar to be invited into the secret place. In fact, all are invited, but few go.
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in Him I will trust.” – Psalms 91:1-2
Psalms 91 is all about a special verbally-activated covenant of security in the midst of a very dangerous world. It actually starts off saying this covenant is reserved for people who can be intimate with God.
If you are not careful, your focus on task and achievement will interfere with the secret place. What’s that all about?
This is the difference between Martha and Mary. Martha was awesome but she was refusing the upgrade to being a friend because she prized her status as a servant.
There’s a big upgrade from being a servant to a friend – that’s a different kind of relationship. There’s a big upgrade from being a friend to being family – that’s a son. Then there’s a big difference from being a son to becoming a bride.
Friends are all about taking on His priorities. Sons are about becoming a co-heir with Jesus. Brides are about covenant in whole-hearted identity in Jesus. Now, all of this is about the secret place. It’s about the level of intimacy with Jesus you go after.
Want security in a dangerous world? You need a covenant that only comes with intimacy. You’ve been invited, now go!
