TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
Stay close to me. I am a well-spring of provision. I am the answer to every need. Don’t look to yourself for provision. Stop looking to others to supply answers. When you learn to follow me, you have true freedom.
OUT OF EGYPT
The wilderness is the place where you learn to live with God, day in and day out. It’s an ugly place because you and I try to take control there. The whole point of the wilderness is to learn to give up control.
When God shows up in your wilderness, amazing things happen. He says, “You don’t need to do anything because I’m going to do everything for you.”
You have only one responsibility in the wilderness: stay close to His side. Why is it so hard? Why do you want to run off and do things your way?
You and I love Egypt. It’s all you’ve ever known. Yes, you were a slave there, but it was familiar, so you long for the way it was. You run back to Egypt in your finances, marriage, relationships, work or ministry. The cycle never stops and you soon realize that light at the end of the tunnel is an oncoming train.
Stop! You have a heavenly Father who wants to supply all – and that means ALL – of your needs. He is rich beyond measure and merciful without end. Learn to let Jesus supply all you need.
You see, where you were once a slave, you are now part of God’s family. The family is welcome at the table where you no longer eat scraps, but the best the King can offer. You are free to follow Him or go your own way. Just a tip, you’re way isn’t the best way.
And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work. –2 Corinthians 9:8
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO LET GO. LET GOD PROVIDE YOUR IDEAS, NEEDS AND RELATIONSHIPS. HE KNOWS WHAT HE’S DOING.
