TODAY’S PROPHETIC NUMBER – 8/8/2023
Matthew 8:8 – The centurion answered and said, “Lord, I am not worthy that You should come under my roof. But only speak a word, and my servant will be healed.”
Who are you? It’s a question many can’t answer. Authority comes from identity. When you understand He has clothed you in His garments, His armor, and you are seated with Him in heavenly places, you will access the divine authority He has given you. The centurion knew Jesus’ authority because he understood how authority works. You are mighty because the Lord lives in you and commands you to do greater things.
Declaration: I rise in the authority of Christ and walk with Him accomplishing all that He purposes.
SEEK AND HIDE?
If you will get before God and get consecrated to pursue a certain thing, God will bless your pursuit. The Bible says the Lord had sought for someone to love Him with their whole heart. Enter David.
“…The Lord has sought for Himself a man after His own heart…” – 1 Samuel 13:14
That word “after” literally means “in pursuit of.” David was blessed not because he was a Marvel comic superhero, a Jedi master or because he learned more Scripture than anybody else. He was blessed because he was a man after God’s own heart. That’s powerful.
Kingdom power shows up in Kingdom pursuit. If you consider yourself someone who loves God, seek His heart. Seek His ways with passion! He has given you His thoughts and wishes in His word, the Bible.
Most people these days have one and that’s nice, but it truly is just a book until you open it and begin to immerse yourself in the very word of God. Read it. Study it. Memorize it. Write it down on scrap paper. Matthew makes it pretty plain:
“Ask and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.” – Matthew 7:7
Seek Him then hide His word in your heart as David did. Not only did David know God’s word, he kept his commands, and in those times when he fell, David threw himself on the ground and admitted his sin. He begged forgiveness then got up and did the right thing. He repented and went on loving God in a crazy cool way.
God blesses pursuit, yes, but all the more so when you’re pursuing His kingdom. God’s word also tells us in Psalms 23 that goodness and mercy will follow us when we seek His heart.
