TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
I have so many amazing plans for your life. Keep your eyes fixed on Me only. Do not be frightened by what surrounds you, for I will equip you to have victory over the giants in your life. Nothing is impossible when you place your trust in Me!
EPIC WALK WITH JESUS
The word ‘epic’ can be defined as “heroic, majestic, or impressively great.” However, the word ‘nominal’ can be defined as “existing in name only” or “very small.”
You are the only one who can make the decision between an epic walk with Jesus or a nominal, insignificant walk with Him.
You must believe that God Almighty has empowered you to put your hands on the steering wheel of your life. Then, steer your life into the power of God in such a way that you partner with the Lord to have kingdom outcomes in your life.
On the flip side, if you think you’re bound up and see yourself the way your giants see you, you will never cross over into the Promised Land. The Bible says the reason the children of Israel turned around the first time and didn’t enter the Promised Land is because they saw themselves as grasshoppers in the sight of the giants.
In other words, the enemy said to the Israelites, “Ya’ll are a bunch of bugs.” So, they turned to God and responded, “Sorry, God. We’re bugs.” They placed more value on the words of their enemy than they did on the voice of their God. This kept their focus more on their history than on their destiny.
The book of Luke says that no word of the Lord will ever fail, but because they did not believe this, they could never conform their lives to the image of His plan.
“Now may the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep,equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.” – Hebrews 13:20-21
Are you going to allow the circumstances in your life to determine your response? Or, will you become vulnerable and allow the author and perfector of your faith to guide you through each day? Will you settle for a nominal, easy going walk with God? Or will you push hard into the heart of God? Trust His ways. Live an epic life.
