TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
Seeking requires action. Sometimes, it requires stamina. I Am worth it and so are the gifts and upgrades I have for you. Seek Me no matter how long it takes and you will be found by Me.
THE KRYPTONITE OF SEEKING
Offense will destroy you. It will keep you rooted in one spot and once you’re not moving, you’re an easy target for the enemy. Listen to me on this. Offense will drain you of all desire for forward progression.
You have to get past the “I don’t wanna’s” of life. The “I don’t wanna’s” are apathy and apathy kills you. Apathy is the absence or suppression of passion. It’s the part of you that says, “I better not get too fired up about that because I might get disappointed.”
So your value for your comfort is greater than being passionate about Jesus. You have to change your values. Your balance is messed up and the Bible says that God doesn’t like false balance.
Dishonest scales are an abomination to the Lord, But a just weight is His delight. – Proverbs 11:1
A big part of dealing with your “I don’t wanna’s” is dealing with the part of you that simply wants to make it through the moment. That’s the survival mentality. That’s actually what Jesus is addressing when He’s talking to everybody in Matthew 6:25-34.
Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? – Matthew 6:30
God’s not saying to be irresponsible and just wait for your needs to magically show up on your doorstep. You still have to go to work. God is saying, “Do not approach me as though you are a survivor. The survivor mentality is a poverty mentality.” God doesn’t think like a poor man. Surviving is the kryptonite of seeking and seeking is necessary for finding.
Sick of apathy? Tired of being a survivor? Get up! Refuse to be offended and go after Jesus is a crazy cool way. You’ll never be disappointed.
