TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
While I live in eternity and Am not subject to time, you are. Time is a safety net I use to keep you from being overwhelmed with My enormity and complexity. Invite Me into your time – past, present and future. I will not only accept, I will bless you.
HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO BE BLESSED?
There’s a word that gets thrown around in church a lot that people don’t understand. Oh, they smile and act like they know what it means, but they don’t. Most pastors don’t have a clue so I’ll make it simple for you all today: Whenever you intentionally go after the Kingdom, that’s called consecration.
In the book of Exodus, Moses commanded the children of Israel to get themselves consecrated.
“…Consecrate yourselves today to the LORD…that He may bestow upon you a blessing this day.” – Exodus 32:29
When you seek after God in an incredible way, there are things God doesn’t teach you because He gives them to you. So much of the power of God is not taught, it’s caught.
You have to be at the right place at the right time. You have to accept the appointment. You meet God at a certain time in a certain place and there’s a certain conversation you’re going to have. He’s going to give you a download or an upgrade just because you consecrated yourself to being obedient.
What do you need to get purposeful about? Your marriage or family relationships? Do you need to get consecrated over your finances, business or ministry? Whatever it is, you need to get serious about it and pursue the Kingdom until God bestows – or gives – you a blessing over that thing.
My friend, standing still is going backward. I’ve told you many, many times that comfort kills because it does! It kills hopes, dreams, faith, and upgrade because you were not made to be comfortable. You were made to be consecrated.
You were designed to be an overcomer and a warrior, and that takes guts. It takes grit and action. Do you have what it takes to be blessed?
