TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
Your future is much greater than your history and it is leading to your destiny. God’s plans for you are good; to prosper you and not harm you. His plans are to give you hope and a future. You are positioning yourself under the windows of heaven and can expect to receive.
THE FIGHT FOR WHAT CAN BE
One thing you must learn on your quest for upgrade, is to trust in the heart of God and in the power of His grace. Why? Because He is not prepared to punish you for mistakes made in your attempts to move forward and receive your upgrade. Anyone who tells you different, doesn’t know God’s goodness!
You see, Father God doesn’t punish you when you mess up. Instead, He does what any good father does – He picks you up! God is passionate about your progression. He has a much higher value for your personal growth than for your punishment.
“I will heal their faithlessness; I will love them freely, for My anger is turned away from Israel.” – Hosea 14:4
Since He made you to be a warrior, He knows that if you don’t fight for upgrade, you will fight for things that don’t matter. He says to you the same thing He said to Joshua three different times as He was commanding him to move forward into the Promised Land.
When you are afraid to move from where you are, you will settle for something that once was, rather than what could be. The fight for what once was (the past) is a battle for what is irrelevant and insignificant. It is the wrong fight to be in! I like to call that the “Dragon of Religion.”
You see, religion likes to call whatever used to be a long time ago “godliness.” Not sure what I’m talking about? Think, “This is the way we’ve always done it.” Or, “God doesn’t work that way anymore.”
When you keep your head stuck in the sands of the past, you will never move forward.
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO LET GO OF YOUR PAST AND DETERMINE TO MOVE FORWARD IN YOUR KNOWLEDGE AND RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS! HE WON’T PUNISH YOU IF YOU MESS UP. HE’LL PICK YOU UP AND SAY, “SIC ‘EM!”
