TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
Just as I do not demand your love, I also do not demand you follow My good and perfect will for your life. I ask for your involvement and your partnership. Together, we can bring your destiny into focus for your ultimate good.
THE PLAN FOR PARTNERSHIP
God could demand your love, but He doesn’t. Love demanded is not love. He could demand your obedience, but He doesn’t. His will for your life, His heart for you, is a lot like His love. He wants your permission and involvement.
Yes, God Almighty is looking for you to partner with Him. You can’t just say, “If it’s a God thing, it will happen. If it’s not, it won’t,” especially as you and I tend to get in His way.
Here’s what’s real about partnership: you can find your identity, purpose and destiny through many avenues – all connected to the awesome heart of God. Here are just a few ways to get with His program.
- Praise and worship as a weapon
- Stewarding environments
- Declarations and decrees to be made
- Obtaining the mind of Christ
- Going after the power of binding and loosing
- Being connected to the right people for Kingdom advancement
- Principles of pulling and casting down
There is also the word of your testimony and so much more. In short, we must cooperate with God by being sold out to His heart that is being revealed in any situation.
That’s still easier said than done. As human beings, we tend to jump on the defense when life brings trials. Truth is, that is exactly when our faith and everything we’ve learned ought to kick into high gear. Non-Christians are watching us to see how we will react to this or that. The good news is, so is God.
“Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” – Luke 10:19
We tend to focus on the serpents in this scripture, but if you read it, it also says we have power over all the power of the enemy. That power is partnership with the Holy Spirit. Do you know His plan? Get with the program and go after God’s will for your life.
