Daily Devotional January 17 - Prophesy For Today

Today is special in that I am going to list five prophesies that pertain to you. Please read these verses and apply the lesson from the Word.

"Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, (mature) be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.  Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing."  Philippians 3:15-16

Our response to what we already know to be true is why our faith is where it is right now.  If we have faith that can move mountains, this verse is true in us and if we cannot even get through one day without being overcome, this verse is true in us.  So many of us aren't living by the truths that we
know. Somewhere along the way, somebody told us it didn't matter much if we acted out our faith, so we tread through life:
without being inspired
  • without being excited for God
  • without growing in faith
  • without enjoying worship
  • without praising God
  • without the kind of enthusiasm that comes with living out what we already know to be true.
There should be more conviction in the Christian community today to live by the truths that they have already learned.  We want God to take us into His confidence and reveal His magnificence and His secrets to us and we can't even abide in the simple truths that God taught to us ten years ago.  

Here this prophetic word: Christians aren't getting all they can out of life because they are not living out the truths that they already know.  Our response to what we already know to be true is why our faith is where it is right now.
"Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth. While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light...." John 12:35-36

There will be no new light revealed until you and I decide to live in the light that God has already revealed.  If God is His mercy has revealed truth in our heart and we have come to a knowledge of the truth and we have tasted to His goodness; we mock Him by wavering in our faith.

It is foolishness to think that God is going to keep trying new truths on you and shedding new light on you to see which truths meet your approval and which light you like the most.  It is time that we take God at His Word and stop toying with the Almighty. God did not send His Son to die for us and give us His Word so that we could continue to act like we don't know what's going on.

It is spoken in the Word and it has been my experience that most people have learned and relearned the truths of God hundreds of times and sometimes without so much as even an inclination to live them out.  The light of God within us, is to be set on an hill to shine so that the glory of God can be witnessed by the world, through us, and God gets the glory.  How does God get glory when His own people live like they don't even know Him. Some of us have enough light within us to light up a whole city and we squander it and hide it and keep it behind closed doors.  Some of us have enough light that we could be a torch for God, and we choose a lessor way. Oh, we like it when God is the light, but when God calls us to be the light....

There will be no new light revealed until you and I decide to live in the light that God has already revealed.


"Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you.@"  Matthew 9:29
You can.....   You can be......    You can do it.....
You can have peace in your life

You can have joy in your life
You can have fulfillment in your life
If you haven't given up and you are still breathing, you can.

Don't believe one more lie from the enemy. You can find and possess any and all that's on your heart. God didn't give you faith so you could go about acting like you don't have faith.

Faith moves mountains
Faith heals the sick
Faith fills dreams
Faith sets us free to get on with it.
With faith you can subdue nations.

Don't wait another day to take hold of this prophetic truth. It is for you. Take what God offers. Put your hands out, your hearts out and receive an infilling of faith.
There's nothing wrong with living by faith and living a life that shows the love of God.
There's nothing wrong with having faith that can move mountains.
There's nothing wrong with exercising your faith and making a fool of yourself for Christ.
There's nothing wrong with believing differently that you used to. God has been trying to get through to some of us for decades and we still act like we don't even know Him.

Of course you are going to be trampled on.
Of course you are going to be put down by our family.
Of course you are going to become vulnerable.
Of course your friends will think you have gone off the deep end. Is that such a big price to pay?
Of course we are going to have to face the naysayers.
But what is the alternative? - A life of mediocrity, always questioning God, wondering if God really knows what He is doing.  Year after year, succumbing to the flesh, having no power to overcome even the smallest barrier.  What is the alternative? - telling our kids or grand-kids by our actions that we don't have a clue.

Here me. If you do not instill every Word of faith that you possess in Almighty God, to your children and grandchildren, they will not win in the days to come.  God created a way to live above what this world offers and it's called God's faith. The highway of life takes on a whole new look when we are on God's 'faithway'.
You can..... You can be...... You can do it.....


"...Sirs, why do ye these things? We also are men of like passions with you, and preach unto you that ye should turn from (let go of) these vanities unto the living God, which made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all things that are therein:"  Acts 14:15
Let it go
If God has spoken to you and said, "let it go", for God's sake let it go before it consumes you, whatever it is.

It could be something damaging to your body, like: substance abuse, or habitual smoking, of over-eating, drugs, or excessive use of alcohol.

It could be something personal, like: hatred, or bitterness, envy or jealously, lying or cheating, living outside of God's will concerning marriage and intimate relationships.

It could be something spiritual, like: Toying with spirits or divination, testing God or dabbling in forbidden territory.

It could be something simple, like: Apathy toward the things of God, unforgiveness in our heart or an unwillingness to receive wise council.

Whatever it is that is keeping you from moving forward and accepting your rightful place as an Ambassador of Christ. Let it go.

Whatever it is that you know that God disapproves of but its had a hold on you so long its starting to take on a life of its own. Let it go.

Whatever it is that keeps you trapped in your circumstances - whatever constrains you from doing what is right, let it go.  God will replace it with something far better, but there's only room for one God in your life and God will not share His place with anything or anyone.

Whatever is stealing or draining from the time that you sense should be spent with God, it has got to go.

Whatever it is that rends you powerless in prayer needs to be abandoned.  Most of us don't need to post on the refrigerator what it is that is hampering our prayer life.  We know what it is, we just haven't wanted to deal with it.  But I say with authority and by permission, it's time to let it go.

"Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thine heart: Wait, I say, on the LORD."  Psalm 27:14
Wait on the Lord
If God has spoken to you and said, "Wait," please let me encourage you to hold on, and prepare; don't let go, but don't jump ahead of God's timing. When we do jump ahead of God's timing, we annul His will for us, because we move our self onto His throne. Wait until you get release from God.  Wait is a powerful and profound word, when it comes from God. It can protect you from immeasurable pain and heartache. When God issues the wait command:
  • it's not to keep you from some beautiful experience
  • it's not to hold you back from what is rightfully yours
  • it's not to slow down your progress or to discourage you.
  • It's to protect you and me from making horrific and sometimes irreversible mistakes.
God says wait to protect you, and those who wait on the LORD are never disappointed.

These are the five prophesies for today
Our response to what we already know to be true is why our faith is where it is right now.
There will be no new light revealed until you and I decide to live in the light that God has already revealed.
You can..... You can be...... You can do it.....
