TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
God is waking you up to your dreams so you can walk in the purpose He has for you. While that purpose may not be clear, continue to glorify God in the way you act. Upgrade will come before you know it.
BOUGHT WITH A PRICE
Do you know why most people won’t get out of bed on Sunday morning? Just like you and me, they enjoy their down time. The difference is, you cannot convince them their life is not their own.
It isn’t that they don’t want to be fed the Word of God, or even that they don’t want to worship the Lord. They likely do. It’s just very, very difficult to get an American to believe they are not in total ownership of their own lives.
They lack character because they lack covenant.
A covenant mentality says “my job is to glorify God no matter what.” A covenant mentality says, “My life is not my own, but God’s.”
Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s. – 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
Lack of a covenant mentality causes Christians to warm a pew on Sunday, then cheat someone out of money on Tuesday. It causes them to enjoy Bible study on Wednesday morning, then spend the afternoon in the gossip cauldron. You see, they don’t believe their business practices, their words, or their life in general actually belong to God.
Here’s the kicker about covenant: covenant is the only thing that causes God to respond to you! God doesn’t respond to your need, your riches, pain or poverty. He only responds because He created you – He owns you – and He purchased you back after you willingly became slave to a cruel master, the devil.
Do you lack Christian character? If you do, you likely lack a covenant mentality. However, that can change! You can get into covenant. It just means changing the way you think. Once your thinking changes, your actions will begin to change.
Focus on this: Your only job on this earth is to glorify God no matter what!
Whether you eat, or drink, or whatever you do, do everything for the glory of God. – 1 Corinthians 10:31
“Whether” refers to action. Whether you are eating, drinking, walking, sitting, laughing, crying, buying, selling, winning, losing, traveling or building – no matter what your circumstance – shine the spotlight on God.
Every human being is called to glorify God. There are individual purposes that go with that as to how we are to glorify Him, but we will never find that purpose unless we start with our calling – covenant!
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO GO AFTER YOUR PURPOSE. START LIVING YOUR CALLING – YOUR COVENANT TO GLORIFY GOD WITH YOUR LIFE NO MATTER YOUR CIRCUMSTANCE. YOU BELONG TO GOD – NOT YOURSELF!
