TODAY’S PROPHETIC NUMBER – September 4, 2023
Matthew 9:4 – But Jesus, knowing their thoughts, said, “Why do you think evil in your hearts?”
We think of sin as an action that hurts others, or an action done to us. But know this: Your thoughts can take you to a dangerous place. Your condemning thought against yourself can hurt you and lead you into darkness. God really does observe our thinking. Your every contemplation, scheme, image–good, bad, natural or spiritual–is seen and heard by the Lord Almighty. He judges mental actions the same as physical ones. Don’t let your thoughts run off to dangerous places. Set them on Jesus and see where He takes you.
Declaration: I align my thoughts with the thoughts of God. He will bring His perfect will into my life when I contemplate Him.
OPEN YOUR EYES
God does not hide things from us. He hides things for us. But if you fold your arms and say, “Pastor Troy, if God’s not going to just tell me, I’m not seeking,” you’re going to have problems. Need an example?
God caused human beings to want gold. Gold is a yellow rock. Yet, God Almighty hid the yellow rock inside other rocks. The only way you can find it is to bust up some rocks. That’s the Kingdom.
It is the glory of God to conceal a thing but the honor of kings to search out the matter. – Proverbs 25:2
You are beginning to step into majesty when you search and pursue, when you go after things. God doesn’t see you as a loser. He sees you as a King, so He expects you to go after things. He will use your individual gifts and talents for His Kingdom and your destiny.
Say you have a talent for music and playing instruments. God may lead you toward leading worship. You may have a love for children. The nursery at your church may benefit from your skills. What is it your heart wants? Chase that dream.
Once you begin to seek your part in the Kingdom, God will reveal tid-bits to advance your search. 1 Corinthians 10:31 says, “Whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” 1 Corinthians 14:1 says to “Pursue love, and desire spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy.”
You have to go after it. This is the New Testament where you desire and pursue. You need to pay attention to what your desires, or your want-life, is all about. Be careful that you don’t get fascinated with somebody else’s something. God has enough and a plan just for you, so search it out. It’s so worth it!
