TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
When you feel weakened and weary from this life, know this; in all the ages there has never been another you. I created you for now; simply add my super to your now, and experience the super-“now”-tural.
The Bible says when the angel of the Lord showed up to Mary and said, “Hail Mary. You’re blessed,” Mary “cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.” In other words, she thought he had the wrong address.
She was probably thinking, “This angel thinks I’m blessed and highly favored. He’s talking to the wrong person. Does he see me or my circumstances? This is going to be bad.”
It’s just like that with you and me. When you first decide to break ground in your soul, He begins to show you His heart for you in that area. When He shows up, you’ll think He’s mistaken you for somebody else. Here’s the truth: You are mistaking you for somebody less.
Why? Because you don’t know you like He knows you. God sees the redeemed version of you. He knows the you that’s going to be in Heaven forever and ever and ever. He knows that you.
Father God always deals with us in future-present tense, not according to our history, but rather according to our destiny. He’ll start telling you some crazy stuff like you are blessed, a natural learner, a leader, a prophetic voice, a mighty man of valor or a handmaiden of the Lord.
Are you ready to hear those things? Can you walk in the promises and favor He’s offering. Plow up the hard, fallow ground of that place you’ve kept from Him. As you soften that field, be prepared to discover who you really are.
This is what the Lord says to the people of Judah and to Jerusalem: “Break up your unplowed ground and do not sow among thorns. – Jeremiah 4:3
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO KNOW YOU’RE GOD’S FAVORITE. YOU ARE NOT SOMEBODY LESS. HE SEE’S YOU AS YOU WILL BE, NOT AS YOU ARE.
