Signs Your Prophetic Destiny is Being Unleashed

“The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me; your steadfast love, O Lord, endures forever.” (Psalms 138:8 ESV)

1. You are Undergoing the Greatest Trial of Your Life

David and his men returned to their homes and property in Ziklag, only to find that their homes had been burned, their property plundered, and their wives and families captured. To make matters worse, David’s men turned against him, blaming him for the tragedy. David could easily have given up. However, he stayed on track, pressed into God and made tough leadership decisions. As a result, David and his men overcame the enemy, recovered their losses and won back their families. (1 Samuel 30)

The devastation of Ziklag prepared David for his move to Hebron—the very place where he would be crowned King of Judah and then of all Israel. (2 Samuel 2:1)

2. The Obvious Means of Fulfilling God’s Call Seems to have been Removed

Ezekiel was a young man with the call of God upon his life. Born to the priestly tribe of the Levites, his destiny was to serve in the temple from the age of 30. (Ezekiel 1:1, Numbers 4:3) At the age of 23, he was taken captive from Jerusalem and relocated in Babylon. Ezekiel’s primary means of fulfilling God’s call on his life—ministry in the temple—was removed from him.

However, we read in Ezekiel 1:1 that in his 30th year, in the place of captivity, the very time he would have started his priestly service in God’s temple, the heaven’s opened and his ministry as Prophet was launched. (Ezekiel 1:1) [2]

3. A Person you Felt was Significant to God’s Purposes has been Lost to You

Uzziah, King of Judah spent most of his life serving God and his nation well—and the Prophet Isaiah diligently recorded the stories of his reign. (2 Chronicles 26:2) Uzziah must have seemed like the hope of Judah—the King who set things to godly order and made the nation successful. And yet his life ended suddenly in a sinful act of pride.This loss must have been devastating to Isaiah—and yet this was the year that God chose to reveal Himself and the glory of His Heavenly throne to Isaiah and to commission him to speak on God’s behalf. (Isaiah 6)

It is as though God was saying, “It is time to put your eyes on the Only One who can save Judah. I am your only security and all that you need. Now is the time to step up into your prophetic destiny.”

Success in God’s eyes comes from staying on track when the greatest challenges of your life occur. These things are the means Father uses to sharpen and prepare you for what lies ahead. And they may be the very launching pad God uses to propel you into your prophetic destiny.

A Special Prayer For You

Father God, I take a moment to pray for Your daughter who is reading this. Lord she belongs to You and You are hers. You have called her out and have consecrated her for Your use. You have worked in and through her life and she has seen for herself that You are real. Now she has reached a place where she needs You more now than ever. Lord, I pray with everything in me that You fill every valley, every ditch and every lacking place in her. Fill her Lord with Your fulness, with Your love and with Your Spirit. Cause any mountain, any hill and any high thing that is trying to exalt itself against the knowledge of Your will to be brought low and into submission of You. Cause anything crooked and out of the way to be made straight in her. Cause any area in her heart and mind that’s rough to be made smooth. Have your way in and through her. Flow in and through her. You promised Lord that out of her belly shall flow rivers of living waters. I pray those living rivers will minister health and life to her, and bring health and life to her surroundings. Be glorified in her Lord in a mighty way and make her a true testament of Your grace and love. Your Word is forever settled in heaven and I pray Your Word is forever settled in her mind and heart. May it settle every issue in her thoughts and bring supernatural peace to her now. In the name of Jesus, Amen.

(Read Luke 3:4-6; John 7:38; Psalm 119:89)

Ebola.

“So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.” Isaiah 59:19

The Ebola virus has become the name that people fear most. More than cancer, HIV, or any other disease. There is a growing fear of going out into public places, fear of traveling to foreign lands, fear of gathering together in one place. Below is a prophetic word from God regarding Ebola that will help to give you His mind on the matter. Please read and take heed.

“I am going to raise up a standard against this disease like the world has never seen. It will be undeniable that I am real. The cure is faith in Me. The cure is being fully persuaded that I am Jehovah-Rapha, the Lord that heals. I am Jehovah-Rohi, the Lord that protects. And though you walk through the valley of the shadow of death, you will fear no evil. For I am Jehovah-Shammah, the Lord who is with you. My rod and my staff comforts you. I am your shield. I am your protection. The enemy is trying to create fear of gathering together, fear of going and doing the work I have called you to do, fear of uniting together in one place. But you must not fear! You are not without hope! You have Me on your side. You must not fear. No fear! Only faith in Me and My word. Fear Me, not a disease. Fear Me, not an epidemic. Fear My name and walk in the authority I have given you to heal, deliver and set people free.” Says the Spirit of the Lord.

Prayer: Father God, You are my God and I put my faith in You and Your name. Fill me with Your Spirit and power. Fill me with wisdom and knowledge of Your will. Any disease that is trying to exalt itself higher than You must come under subjection. I activate my faith in Your supernatural ability to heal. Be my shield God. Stir up every spiritual gift You have placed in me and let me be used by You in this last day. You have not given me a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love and of a sound mind. I receive soundness of mind right now on this matter and I rest in You. You are my God and my faith is in You. Be glorified in me. In Jesus name, Amen.

(Read Luke 10:19; Psalms 23:4; 2 Timothy 1:7; Mark 16:15; Hebrews 10:25; Luke 3:4-6)

A Divine Life

“Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.” 2 Peter 1:4

It is God’s will that you live a divine life. That you be a partaker of His divine nature, walk in His divine power, live in His divine grace, and experience His divine will for your life. His plans are far greater for you than mere fire insurance. He has a divine purpose for your life. Everything about God is divine and when you truly get to know Him, you discover you were called to live a life that is divine too. Is it a life free of problems, conflict and trouble? Far from it. Actually a divine life in God is filled with problems, conflict and trouble carefully allowed so God’s glory can be seen. So many believers are comfortable. Comfort is the enemy of going from glory to glory and from faith to faith in God. Comfort will rob you of great experiences and moments that God longs for you to have with Him. “I want you to live My divine life for you.” Says the Spirit of the Lord. “No more comfort and trying to stay where you are. Come after Me and seek My divine purpose, My divine promises, My divine power. Be a partaker of My divine inspiration I have for you. Walk in My divine healing, My divine protection, My divine wisdom. Receive My divine influence upon your heart and let it be reflected in your life. Let Me enrich you in all things. Settle for nothing that falls short of My divine will, which is My best for you.”

Prayer: Father God, I believe Your Word and I receive it in my heart. Help me not remain comfortable, but grow in Christ and go from glory to glory and from faith to faith. Help me to live a divine life and be a partaker of Your divine nature. In Jesus name, Amen.

(Read 2 Peter 1; 2 Corinthians 3:18; Romans 1:17; 1 Corinthians 1:5)

A Message from God’s Heart for You

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5

“My darling daughter, I want you to love who I have created you to be. Accept the experiences I have allowed you to go through and where I brought you out from. Do not compare your experiences and life to anyone else. Without these experiences you would have no testimony of My will and love for you. You would not be able to do what I have called you to do. I know that some of your days were hard, but I was with you in every moment. I did not allow you to be crushed by the enemy. And I never will. Trust that you are who you are for a reason. My reason. Created with a purpose that is definite, true, and unique to you. Beware of those who doubt you. Those people do not have My vision or knowledge for your life. Do not let them make you feel worthless or wrong. Their opinion and determination for your life has nothing to do with the calling I have placed on you because I created you, not them. They have no idea what your calling is. But you know, because I have told you. Therefore, go forward knowing that you are purposefully and wonderfully made just as you are. Realize that any limitations you may have are just opportunities for you to allow me to fill you up. Let no man deter you. Let no man tell you that because you don’t have this or that, that you are not good enough. What they won’t tell you is that they are also lacking some things. Instead smile and nod at them knowing in your heart that they are lacking my vision, the very vision I have given you. With my love and grace, accept yourself. Love yourself. All of yourself. Even the parts you would rather forget. Allow me to heal them. And when you are full of My love, give that love to others. I fill you up with My love so you can pour it out into the world and be a blessing to My people.”

Prayer: Father, I thank You for redemption. I thank You for knowing me by name and loving my light and also my brokenness. Help me stand tall in who You have created me to be as I walk purposefully on this Earth as a daughter of the King. Thank You for calling me to You and for the vision You have given me. In Jesus name, Amen.

Do It for Your King

“And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.” Colossians 3:17

I recently was offered a major assignment and immediately thoughts ran through my mind wondering what people would think about it. I snapped out of it when in my spirit I heard, “Are you doing it for them or for me?” Convicted, I repented for not taking authority over those thoughts that clearly exalted themselves against the knowledge of God and got myself together. I said, “I am doing this for my KING.” Daughter of the King, you will have many opportunities, big and small, to show forth the glory of the LORD through your work, your purpose and your life. He will place you in situations by which you will have influence over others and can be an instrument of His grace toward them. The enemy will constantly tempt you to focus on yourself and how everything affects you. This tactic, I believe, is one of his favorites since it is steeped in pride and self-focus. Therefore, you must always be on guard when those thoughts come to lead you away from doing everything in the name of your Lord Jesus. Always remember Who called you, Who keeps you and Who equips you. This will help you keep everything in perspective. So go forth and do all that you do for your KING!

Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father, I ask You today to help me be aware of the truth in this scripture. That even the seemingly mundane tasks are to be done in the Name of Jesus. I thank You for even more opportunities to be a living example of Your glory in the earth. I know that You have called me, You keep me and You equip me, therefore my total trust is in You. I thank You in Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.

(Read 2 Corinthians 10:5)

One word from God can change your life!

“Anxiety in the heart of man causes depression, but a good word makes it glad.” Proverbs 12:25 (NKJV)

There are people who feel depressed like there is no escape from the prison in their mind. We live in a real world with real problems and how we deal with the problems in our life is totally up to us. The spirit of depression will have you trying to escape reality rather than deal with things head on. It will try to convince you that you can’t handle life’s problems. That you’re not strong enough. When I experienced severe depression in my life, I felt hemmed in, boxed in like there was no escape. I felt cornered in my mind like there was no getting out. The enemy had me held in captivity and in bondage, but Jesus delivered me and set me free! “Anxiety in the heart of man causes depression” the Bible says, “but a good word makes it glad.” What was the good word that made my heart glad and took away every bit of anxiety? What did God tell me that set me free? One day He spoke to my heart, “There is no condemnation to you daughter.” I had felt terrible and was beating myself up over past decisions I had made. I was stuck feeling condemned and helpless, but God spoke a good word to me that broke the chains of depression off of my life. I withdrew to get alone with God and He gave me hope and let me see Him with fresh eyes. I ran right into His amazing grace and was overwhelmed. One word from God can change your life! None of us are strong enough to face the enemy by ourselves. You can’t fight depression in your own strength.Thank God for modern medicine that help balance the chemicals in our brain and help us function, but understand God is powerful enough to heal and deliver you. Receive the supernatural power of God, His everlasting love and His good word.

Prayer: Father God I cry out to You for deliverance. You haven’t forgotten me. I am Yours and You are mine. I rebuke the spirit of fear, anxiety and depression and command it to take it’s hand off of my life. I receive Your deliverance from every bondage and I bring every thought captive in the obedience of Christ. Whatever the enemy has meant for my bad, turn it around for my good. Help me stand fast in the liberty wherewith Christ has made me free and cause me to not be entangled ever again with a yoke of bondage. In Jesus name, Amen.

(Read Galatians 5:1; 2 Timothy 1:7; Romans 8:15; John 14:27; 2 Corinthians 10:2-6)

Look to the Lord of Blessing!

“Then He entered into one of the boats, which was Simon’s, and asked him to put out a little from the land. And He sat down and taught the multitudes from the boat. When He had finished speaking, He said to Simon, “Launch out into the deep water and let down your nets for a catch.” Luke 5:3-11

Friday, October 10th began the Jewish festival called Sukkot or Feast of Tabernacles.

The Gospels record that our Lord Jesus not only celebrated the festival, but He took traditional elements of the celebration and applied them to His own life and mission. We find this particularly in John 7 and 8 where Jesus uses two traditional symbols from the Feast of Tabernacles celebration, water and light, to help the people understand who He is and what He offers.

Feast of Tabernacles is a festival about rejoicing in the blessings that God has provided, but let’s be sure our focus is on the Lord of blessing – instead of the blessings!

We read in Luke that Jesus told His disciples to go into the deep waters and let down their nets for fish. When they did, their nets were filled up with fish to the point of breaking. Being fishermen and businessmen, they may have been tempted to start doing business. I mean, think how much they could have made!

But God had a different purpose. The disciples’ occupation as fishermen was just a vehicle for God to demonstrate His great power and love. He wasn’t blessing them with fish so that they would get excited about fishing — He was blessing them with fish so that they could get their eyes off their fishing and on to the greater call He had for them! Thankfully, they left the fishing business and went off with the Lord to do great and mighty things.

Let’s make sure we’re not getting up wrapped up in fish! We seek the Lord for His blessings, prosperity, and success, but true discipleship is focusing not on the blessings of the Lord, but on the Lord of the blessings! When He sees that we have pure and willing hearts, He will be faithful to use us to accomplish His glorious plan!

Prayer: Heavenly Father, Almighty God, I humble myself before Your Presence. I thank You and I praise Your infinite Majesty. I want to worship You and adore You, to love You with all my heart. I thank You, Lord, that I can abound in Your favor and blessing today. I, therefore, expect Your favor to go before me today.

With A Humble Heart, Let God Have His Way

“Humble yourselves, therefore under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.” 1 Peter 5:6-7

If you want to see God moving in your life, you’re going to have to get out of the way! I know, I know. You got this. You’re strong. You’re an independent woman. You’re self-sufficient and running things! But still, you realize that somehow your power and knowledge only go so far. Something is still missing from your life. So you invite Jesus in. You surrender your will to His and begin to walk the path. And it’s beautiful, but then it gets hard. You walk into some unfamiliar territory and you get scared. You realize that everything you knew up until this point no longer serves you. You get impatient, you question God, and you deviate from the path in an attempt to make things happen in your own time and in your own way. And it blows up in your face. Now you’re on your knees and you realize that you have stumbled and you have again put your will before His. But God is forgiving and as you cry out to Him, He hears you. Then He shows you that everything you were waiting and believing Him for was right there waiting for you the whole time. You see that He had delivered as He had promised. If you had just been a little more patient, a little more trusting, you would have seen it. And in that moment, you are humbled.

God’s plan for us is good and He always has a fresh set of grace and forgiveness waiting for us on the other side of our mistakes. But what He desires is for us to avoid stumbling altogether. Once you lay down your will at His feet, do your best not to pick it back up. If we can just humble ourselves before we make a mistake, get out of the way, and allow Him to be the Lord over our lives, we will taste and see that the Lord is always good. He has that thing you’re hoping for waiting for you, right now, but allow Him to get it to you in His perfect timing. Humble yourself before Him and allow His will to guide you.

Prayer: Father I humble myself before You today. I acknowledge that Your glorious plan is greater than mine. Forgive me for those times when I get impatient and trade my will for Yours. Help me and give me patience, wisdom, grace and understanding as I walk this path with You. Thank You for never leaving me, even when I stumble. In Jesus name, Amen.

Maintain a Good Attitude

” Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, to be content.” Philippians 4:11 (KJV)

You may be desperately looking for things to change in your life, but change begins with having a good attitude.  I will never forget my husband and I lived in a small two bedroom apartment with our two kids.  I worked from home and had to setup my business on the kitchen table.  There were papers, folders, toys, and bottles everywhere.  My kids were running around and I was trying to operate a professional business.   In my mind it was not working out and my attitude was not the greatest.  The Holy Spirit began to convict me and I knew that I had allowed my situation to change my attitude.  I learned that if you can’t change your situation, you must change your attitude, and God will change your situation.  Once you adjust your attitude, things may not change overnight, but you will have peace while you wait on God. You always have a choice regardless of what you are facing.  Choosing to maintain a good attitude is your way of telling God that you are thankful for what He has already done and your faith and hope is in Him. This is what gives God room to work wonders in your life.

Prayer: Father, thank You for helping my attitude.  I want to see things change and improve in my life, but I choose not to let it cause my attitude to become negative.  I choose to be thankful and stay in faith.  In Jesus name, Amen.
