TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
Follow Me this day and discover the glory of My presence in you. With Me, all things are possible to those who believe. There is none like Me, able to do more than you could ever ask or dream.
When you start hanging around Jesus, something happens. You start believing you can take on hell with a water pistol. You start saying, “You know what, I’m not nearly as big of a failure as I thought I was.” This is because the Lord is speaking new identity into my life.
“So, Pastor Troy, are you saying that you think you’re supposed to be great?” Absolutely, you and I are supposed to be great. All of the disciples got into these constant knock-down, drag-outs over this one thing: “Which one of us is the greatest?” Jesus never did answer that question.
Instead, He said something amazing. “You guys will all do things greater than I’ve done.”
That’s the green light to go for it. That’s the difference in the wilderness journey and the Promised Land. It’s in following that we learn the goodness of God. In the wilderness you don’t move unless you see God move. In the Promised Land, He’s like, “Get ‘em, and I’ll just back up whatever you do! Whatever you put your foot on, I will give you. Just go, go, go!”
King David tapped into that kind of grace a thousand years before Jesus showed up, and what did he say? “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life.” See man, in this new covenant with the Lord, you go and Jesus follows you.
Jesus in the book of Matthew sums up what He means by “go”:
“All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” – Matthew 28:18-20
Go! Go, in the power and authority of the Holy Spirit, accepted, loved and forgiven – knowing you are never alone. Do those greater things God has planned for you.
