TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
I Am a loving and powerful God. Yes, I could make this or that happen, but the truth is, I want your involvement. Partner with Me through the Holy Spirit. Take authority as My child to love the unlovable.
THE LONG WAY HOME
Both believers and non-believers say, “If it’s not of God, it won’t work. And if it is God, you can’t stop it.” While this is true, it’s also false and you need to know why.
Let’s be clear: there is the will of God that is fixed, permanent and is going to happen. A good example is Jesus is coming back. Nothing is going to stop Him. You can vote or not vote. You can believe or not, it doesn’t matter. Jesus is coming back.
Then there’s also the will of God that concerns His heart’s desire. That is the plan of God being carried out in our individual lives. The problem is that the “in-a-me” often gets in the way and we get in the way of God’s plan for our good.
I know for a fact that God wanted me to be a preacher who traveled all over the world helping people nobody else would help. Instead of partnering with Him as a kid or a teenager, I had my own dreams and planned a future as a musician.
Drugs, alcohol, broken relationships, anger issues, legal troubles – I brought all of these left turns into my life. I was actively derailing God’s heart, His will, for my life. I got in the way and so do you, my friend.
How many times have you launched into the next thing – the new job, relationship, financial scheme – only to leave the Lord out of that decision? Finding the will of God demands partnership. Want to find your destiny? Ask God for your identity. Then go after your purpose by asking the Father to reveal His heart for you to you.
“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.” – Matthew 7:7
That door is to His Heart. Don’t take the long way home. Partner with Him so His Kingdom can come and His amazing will be done on the earth of your life as He planned it in Heaven.
“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” – Ephesians 2:10
