TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
Today is the day to put away things that have been holding you back. Open your grip and move forward with open hands. God can’t fill hands holding on to something else.
ALL MY EXES…
If you are going to have an exodus, you will have exes within your life and that’s not always easy. I’m talking about things that used to be a huge part of your life that no longer are. If you don’t have any of these, I’m worried about you!
I used to cuss, smoke dope and ride bulls. Those things are no longer a part of my life because I grew up. Those things are no longer profitable – not that they ever were – and if I were still into them, they would hold me back and most likely kill my testimony.
You see, I’ve had a transformation. Jesus saved me. I follow Him and answer to Him. There is a huge contrast between my before and my after.
When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known. – 1 Corinthians 13:11-12
How about you? Have you seen a huge transformation because of Jesus? If you have, there will be people you used to connect with that you no longer do. There will be ways of thinking you no longer think and things that owned you that you are now free from. There are places you used to go that you no longer want to darken the doorway.
I call these things “trophies of grace.” If you don’t have a few of these babies mounted on your wall, you’ve not truly had an Exodus. Jesus changes things. He just does. If nothing’s changed, you are still in bondage. Break the chains. Ask Jesus to save you.
When Jesus saves you, He changes you. Embrace that. Go after that! That’s the start of progression and progress always leads to good and better things!
Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed—in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. – 1 Corinthians 15:51-52
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO MOVE FORWARD. TAKE STOCK OF YOUR EXES. IF YOU DON’T HAVE ANY, ASK JESUS TO SAVE YOU AND TAKE YOU OUT OF BONDAGE TO SIN AND DEATH THROUGH SATAN!
