TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
I created Adam to be a farmer and so it is with you. While he tended a garden, you are to tend to the hearts of men. Plant My word. Shower it with love and I will harvest the eternal fruit from your vine.
YOU CAN COUNT ON IT
Guys, can I tell you I can’t believe I’m the guy standing there in front of OpenDoor Church and the whole world that is watching on the worldwide web?
I’m shocked every single time I get up to preach, but you know what? I have to man up to that. I have to live the kind of lifestyle knowing God has called me to stand in this place. I have to say, “Yes, and amen” to that.
Well, that’s what you have to do with every piece of territory you’ve been given. You have territory in your home, in your job, in your relationships, finances, ministry – you’ve got a lot of ground Jesus wants to see plowed, planted and watered for a great big harvest.
When you stand there and don’t fall out, you’re showing you’re qualified for the next level. Just know that, like farming, it’s going to take faith and hard work. There are often trials and tribulations. God didn’t promise it was going to be a walk in the garden.
Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him. – James 1:12
Better is never easier, but I promise you it is better and it leads to life – real life and transformation in the eternal Kingdom of God. Stand your ground and the Lord will increase your territory. You can count on it.
