TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
I have created you with a special purpose. No one can be a better at what I have for you than you. I will put desires in your heart and you are to search them out. Use your gifts for My Kingdom.
OPEN YOUR EYES
God does not hide things from us. He hides things for us. But if you fold your arms and say, “Pastor Troy, if God’s not going to just tell me, I’m not seeking,” you’re going to have problems. Need an example?
God caused human beings to want gold. Gold is a yellow rock. Yet, God Almighty hid the yellow rock inside other rocks. The only way you can find it is to bust up some rocks. That’s the Kingdom.
It is the glory of God to conceal a thing but the honor of kings to search out the matter. – Proverbs 25:2
You are beginning to step into majesty when you search and pursue, when you go after things. God doesn’t see you as a loser. He sees you as a King, so He expects you to go after things. He will use your individual gifts and talents for His Kingdom and your destiny.
Say you have a talent for music and playing instruments. God may lead you toward leading worship. You may have a love for children. The nursery at your church may benefit from your skills. What is it your heart wants? Chase that dream.
Once you begin to seek your part in the Kingdom, God will reveal tid-bits to advance your search. 1 Corinthians 10:31 says, “Whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” 1 Corinthians 14:1 says to “Pursue love, and desire spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy.”
You have to go after it. This is the New Testament where you desire and pursue. You need to pay attention to what your desires, or your want-life, is all about. Be careful that you don’t get fascinated with somebody else’s something. God has enough and a plan just for you, so search it out. It’s so worth it!
