TODAY’S PROPHETIC NUMBER – 8/7/2023
Job 8:7 – Though your beginning was small, yet your latter end would increase abundantly.
Scripture is full of stories of underdogs; the smallest, weakest and least qualified for a job, yet the Lord brought victory and His purpose through them. Why did God use young Gideon, social reject Jephthah, or ordinary housewife Jael to deliver His people? Because He uses the small things to show just how big He is. No matter what failures you have experienced, He is not done with you. He has great plans for you. Get up again and bring your small self to His throne of grace. You don’t really gain life until you are willing to throw your own life down and cry out for His perfect will.
Declaration: I will not promote myself and my agenda. I will make Jesus famous.
GET JESUS INTO THAT SITUATION
Have you ever heard me say, “Serving is power because serving is demonstrating Jesus”? Well, I’m going to say it again today.
First, you get Jesus into any situation by serving Him in that situation. If you don’t learn anything else here today, that right there will change your life. We have to learn how to let certain things impact us.
The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. – James 5:16b
What does it mean when it says “effectual fervent?” It means passionate – you’re passionate because you’re taking it personal. You let things affect you and when you do this, you get Jesus into that situation.
You also have to determine how less than positive things affect you. For example, how your haters affect you is on you. It’s not on anybody else.
That’s been a hard lesson for me because I really want to win people over. Trust me, there’s a lot of people you just cannot win over so stop beating yourself up trying.
By the way, you’re fighting the wrong battle if you’re trying to win your haters over. Your job is not to get them to love you. Your job is to demonstrate the love of Jesus to them. When you do that, the results are not yours – they are the Lord’s.
Serve the Lord. Demonstrate Jesus and be passionate about it. You’ll have real power in your life to love those who hate you and to overcome the obstacles life throws at you. I guarantee it.
