TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
I have not hidden My ways or Myself from you. I Am always present, but you must seek Me – invite Me to be involved with your day. When you look for Me and My benefits, I can bless you.
HIDE AND SEEK
To seek means “to pursue until you see something.” What is it we’re supposed to seek? The Kingdom. The place of “sovereign rule and royal power” where the King has dominion.
When you give God dominion over your life, you’re seeing to it that you give God power and His rightful place in every situation. That’s the “sovereign rule” in the “King-dom” where the King has dominion.
My friend, you need to pursue His power and dominion in every every part of your life – every situation – until you finally see it. You need to go after that in an incredible way.
You know what? Jesus is counting on you to say, “I’m not god, but I know who is” and give Him dominion over your life. Pursue until you see the power of God within your life and let God Almighty rule and reign.
The result of this is Kingdom expansion. To do this, you not only need to get past your offenses, but get past the “I don’t wanna’s.” Offense and “I-don’t wanna” kills people and prevents them from seeing the goodness of God.
Hear me on this: That’s not you! You are going to refuse to get offended. You are going to let things roll off you and not offend you. You are going to get up off the couch and accomplish vision because you’re a seeker and seekers find.
What do seekers find? The Prince of Peace, King of Kings and Lord of Lords. They find Jesus.
And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their pre-appointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us… – Acts 17:26-27
