TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
I call you holy, acceptable and loved. Let no other thought invade your heart. Know I proved My love for you when My Son hung on the cross to shed His blood. This blood has given you right standing with Me.
FROM WOE TO GO!
Can you believe God is good in the midst of terrible circumstances? Then you know how to stand. You can’t stand if you don’t know God is good, and you can’t follow if you’re not willing to be led. Finally, you won’t be able to go until you are healed.
Are you willing to entertain the fact that God Almighty is going to be leading you into places you have not been willing to go–painful places? Isaiah was.
“In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and His train filled the temple. Above it stood the seraphim; each one had six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew.” – Isaiah 6:1-2
And in the midst of this holy place, Isaiah begins to get overwhelmed with how he doesn’t belong in this room. And he says this:
“Woe is me for I am undone…Then flew one of the seraphim unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar.”—Isaiah 6:5-6
What goes on the altar? The blood of the Lord Jesus Christ goes on the altar. So He put a new word in him and it cleansed him. So then Isaiah said,
“Also I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” Then said I, “Here am I. Send me!” – Isaiah 6:8
The brother (Isaiah) went from “woe” to “go” because he was healed. So, here’s the dill pickle. The reason so much of the church doesn’t go is because they’re not healed. You have to receive your healing.
The holiness the Lord Jesus has given you is not your holiness–it’s His holiness that you get to call yours. Jesus brags on you, on any little step that you’re willing to take for Him even in the midst of great big messes and it looking crazy. He’s applauding you.
Today, walk in your God-given identity in Christ. You are cleansed and made whole by the blood He shed on the cross for you. Rejoice and be healed!
