TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
This is a season where you will open your mouth wide and God will fill it. This is not a time to be a wallflower but to speak up and speak out with the wisdom of God. No matter what happens, God loves your efforts.
HEAVEN APPLAUDS YOUR MISTAKES, REALLY!
Jesus commanded His followers to “make disciples of all the nations.” Yes, you’re to tell others about the greatness of Christ. In doing so, you go after your own greatness — your upgrade to the next level of Jesus Freak. Does God want this for you? You bet He does!
When you multiply the Kingdom, Heaven applauds. But what about when you blow it trying to bring a message of hope to a friend, or fail to be a winning witness to a co-worker? What happens when you mess up?
“…so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace: the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands.” -Isaiah 55:12
Yes, Heaven applauds your effort because you are not charged with the results — God is! Now, the Devil will try to convince you of just the opposite. He will tell you that God is disappointed — that He is angry at your failure. Did I tell you Satan is the “father of lies” who stands at the throne accusing you day and night? God’s Word says he is.
You see, when you’re afraid to mess up, you freeze up and refuse to move forward. If the enemy can convince you that you are going to get in bad trouble if you don’t do everything perfect, it’s a huge win for Hell.
The enemy wants you cowering in a corner afraid of the very one who loves you most — Father God. Satan wants to convince you that you are messed up and are always going to mess up, so you might as well just give up.
We need to be healed of that mess. Yes, healed! Those bloody stripes were to combat ALL the work of the Devil including his lies.
Know that God encourages and empowers you to continuously do great things and live life greatly when you know you’re in good standing with an amazing father. You are loved and He is pleased with you, just like He was pleased after each day of creation. Despite it, and you, being a work in progress, He says, “It is good!”
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO GET BACK UP, LET THE FATHER DUST YOU OFF AND THEN, SIC ‘EM! AFTER YOU DO, KNOW THE RESULTS ARE UP TO GOD, NOT YOU!
