TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
I delight in your trust in Me. Call on My Name and trust in My power to answer you in your time of need. Declare, decree and proclaim the Kingdom boldly. I have moved heaven and earth for you and will do so again.
FAITH IN ACTION
There is power in prophetic acts. While many believe that kind of stuff was real in Bible times, I can testify from experience that the prophetic is alive and well today.
First, we need to believe that if we obey God with our natural bodies and do things as unto the Lord, it will initiate a supernatural response from heaven. If we make a confession, a declaration, or a proclamation, we believe our words – lined up with the Father’s – will open a window to heaven that changes things on earth.
Likewise, if we anoint folks with oil, have elders lay hands on them, and pray for healing, we need to believe we’re going to initiate a response of healing from heaven.
The Bible says the Spirit of the Lord responds to what we do in the natural. That’s what Jesus was talking about when He said,
“Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven.” – Matthew 18:18-19
He is saying, “Heaven is looking at what you do, waiting to respond to what you do.” Think about how crazy that is. Heaven is activated by our faith in action!
Heaven responds to prophetic acts throughout the Word of God. Look at the intercession in 1 Kings 18, the act of healing 2 Kings 5, in the warfare of Exodus 17, and the warning in Ezekiel 4 & 5. In Acts 21:10-12, Agabus takes the belt of the apostle Paul and wraps his hands and feet in it. Look those up and see what I mean.
Do you believe Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever? Do you believe our God “changes not” and “there is no shadow of turning in Him”? If you do, you’ve got to believe the power of prophetic acts is just as real and available to believers today as it was in biblical times.
Put your faith into action. Do more than believe in the power of prophetic acts. Give the Lord the opportunity to open the heavens in response to your faith. I double dog dare you!
