TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
I love it when My children seek My counsel. I formed your identity. I mapped out your destiny and I know the way home. Come to Me with your requests and I will give you the desires I put in your heart.
Your life is really a big deal and it needs to be lived well. God is trusting you to live the abundant life He paid for you to live.
There’s a big difference between an epic life and a nominal life. Epic means heroic, majestic, impressively great. Nominal means existing in name only, very small. And what’s real is, it’s up to you if your walk with Jesus is epic or if it is nominal.
Because God gave you free will to love Him or not, He also gave you free will to decide how much of Him and His blessings you want. It’s up to you. It’s not up to anybody else.
You can have the kind of walk with Jesus that provokes people to jealousy or you can be the kind of Christian that causes people to hate Christianity. It’s up to you. You choose.
My friend, once you declare you love Jesus, once you take on the name of Christ and call yourself a Christian, you’re under the world’s microscope. Unbelievers are watching – just waiting to criticize any mistake or misstep just like the dreaded Russian judge at the Olympics.
Instead of a low score, the world is waiting to brand you a hypocrite in the hope you believe their assessment. However, if you’re living an epic life full of God’s promises, you should know your identity.
When you know who you are to Jesus – and hypocrite isn’t in his vocabulary – you understand your purpose and go after your destiny. That’s an epic life. Do you have time or energy for anything less?
God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us. – Acts 17:27
