TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
I have made you to be more than conquerors. All I have promised, I will perform. Stand in My love and grace this day knowing I Am for you and I Am in you to accomplish all I have for you.
CELEBRATING WITH GOD?
I want to be known of God. I know that God knows me. But I want to be known of God and known in heaven as somebody who cooperates with the Holy Spirit and with heaven. I want to be known as one who obeys God rather than men. One who serves men instead of wanting to be served.
“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us…” — Hebrews 12:1
The author of Hebrew’s is saying, “Since heaven is rooting, believing, and trusting in you, you might as well do away with the things that are keeping you from running this race to the fullest.” It’s an amazing thing to know that heaven is rooting for us. It’s a sense of accountability because heaven believes in us! God is trusting us with stuff – Kingdom stuff.
Jesus didn’t care if He was celebrated on earth. He really and truly didn’t. He knew He was celebrated in heaven. He heard the Father say,
“This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”—Matthew 3:17
He heard the Father say what we just read, and then immediately the devil began to test Him. He said, “If you are the Son of God, turn that stone into bread, jump off this cliff…” The devil was actually coming against the Word the Father had spoken to Jesus.
Guys, if you have prophetic words over your life, you haven’t been talking to snakes again, have you? Because the enemy will always ask you, “Did God really say that? Did he really mean it? Are you sure?” He doesn’t want that word to come true in your life.
God’s word is full of promises. Over and over again, God has demonstrated His love for us and shown us the victory we already have in Christ. Let’s, you and I, not become sidelined by the voice of the enemy. That snake is a liar. You and I are going to run the race marked out for us, knowing that all of heaven is cheering us on and celebrating our awesome finish.
“Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith…” – Hebrews 12:2
