TODAY’S PROPHETIC NUMBER – September 15, 2023
Romans 9:15 – For He says to Moses, “I will have mercy on whomever I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whomever I will have compassion.”
Every one of us has looked at someone else’s’ success and thought, “That’s not fair.” Maybe your co-worker got the promotion you have worked hard for, or a friend tells you about their marriage breakthrough while you are still praying for your relationship. Whatever the “unfair” might be, beware the trap of envy. It’s a curse! Instead, consider this: It’s not fair you’re saved and headed to heaven because people much better than you have gone to hell. God has good things for you that He doesn’t have for others because you are you. Enjoy what He has for you and rejoice in what He has for others.
Declaration: I’m thankful for all that God has done for me. I walk in humility and gratitude.
DO THE RIGHT THING
One thing that happens when you begin pursuing God’s will is you believe you won’t get in trouble. If you think that God can only be good when you’re being good, you have a religious spirit. That makes you brother Cain when he said, “God’s going to show up because I gave Him this really cool sacrifice. It isn’t what He wants, but it doesn’t matter. I’m going to bring Him what I want, the way I want to bring it. It doesn’t matter.”
The mindset that “I’ve been good so God has to be good to me” is Cain. That is not Abel. You have to trust in the character of God and believe you’re not going to get into trouble if everything is not right. That’s what Abel did. If you’re saved, you’re covered by the blood of the Jesus. You’re supposed to go after things and you will fail.
If you start stepping off into things, you’re going to come into scenarios that don’t go very well. Step off anyway. The important thing is you’re going after it. Friend, if what you are pursuing is of the Kingdom, you are not alone. You have the help and direction of God through the Holy Spirit. We can’t fail if we trust Him.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. – Proverbs 3:5-6
He knows your motives. God knows what’s in your heart before you do. Able was pure in his offering, thus being accepted by God. Get in tune with creator God. If you do, Psalms 37:4 says He will give you the desires of your heart. Now, that doesn’t mean He will always give you anything you want. It means He will put the desires in you.
The desire to trust, obey and believe in the Word of the Lord is the first desire you’ll get. Then you can be like Abel and do the right thing.
