TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
The Lord is glad for your service. He loves it when He can count on you to bring goodness into a world of evil. You bring light into darkness and point toward your Savior and King! You are HIs favored child!
HIGHLY FAVORED OF THE LORD
If you’ve been told that you can wish positive things into existence, you’ve been sold a bill of goods by the father of lies, Satan. While the world wants you to believe wishful thinking will bring victory, it doesn’t. Why not?
Because wishful thinking is all about your desires and leaves out the plans God has for you. It’s not enough to want those things, or to work at them when you have the time or resources.
If you want to see God move in your life, ministry, family or job, you cannot move to the next level or truly bless others until you not only go after those things, but are consistent.
That means you show up every time you say you will with the right attitude and you strategically plan for a positive outcome. This always includes glorifying God.
You know I enjoy crazy favor with the Lord. How did I get that? Twenty-two years ago, I was consistent with a little – taking groceries to a few elderly people on weekends.
I could have done that once, patted myself on the back and moved on. I could have used any number of excuses to move along – time, family needs, my own financial mess – but I didn’t.
People were counting on me. For many, it was life and death. What would have happened if I decided to change my game plan and say, “Someone else can do it for awhile,” because I was tired, discouraged or off wishful thinking for something else?
I enjoy God’s favor because I don’t fall out or lose focus. God knows I’m strategic about the kingdom and finding ways to bring heaven to earth.
Want favor? Find the inconsistencies in your service and repent! Make a plan to take that territory for Jesus, come rain or shine!
All they asked was that we should continue to remember the poor, the very thing I had been eager to do all along. – Galatians 2:10
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO KEEP GOING EVEN WHEN OTHERS FALL BY THE WAYSIDE. PUT WISHFUL THINKING ASIDE AND DO SOMETHING TO GLORIFY JESUS!
