Title:


The Power of Prophecy




Devotional:


No one is immune to the pain life can bring. It’s unavoidable, though we might make efforts to cope, compartmentalize, and reason it away. Yet I believe it’s into this struggle your Heavenly Father wants to speak truth to your heart today…


So we are convinced that every detail of our lives is continually woven together to fit into God’s perfect plan of bringing good into our lives, for we are his lovers who have been called to fulfill his designed purpose…


If God has determined to stand with us, tell me, who then could ever stand against us? For God has proved his love by giving us his greatest treasure, the gift of his Son. And since God freely offered him up as the sacrifice for us all, he certainly won’t withhold from us anything else he has to give. Romans 8:28, 31-32, TPT


Friend, there is nothing and no one greater than our God. And in the moments we hurt, or feel overwhelmed and afraid, that’s when we need to remember His Word and declare His promises over our lives.


Even though we might not feel it or see it, we can prophesy – declare by faith – God’s blessing and favor over our lives, our families, our nations, and the generations after us.


There have been so many times in my life when I’ve had to choose to worship and prophesy God’s Word when the circumstances around me made me want to run and hide. But our Heavenly Father is so gracious. 


In the moments we hurt, He is kind. When we’re afraid, He is our strength. When we doubt, He is our anchor of hope!


So, no matter what you may be facing today, remember God’s Word and proclaim it in the very atmosphere of your heart and home. May mountains move, may every chain be loosed, and may victory breakthrough in your every area of need, in Jesus’ name!



 


We’re not keeping this quiet, not on your life. Just like the psalmist who wrote, “I believed it, so I said it,” we say what we believe. And what we believe is that the One who raised up the Master Jesus will just as certainly raise us up with you, alive. Every detail works to your advantage and to God’s glory: more and more grace, more and more people, more and more praise! 2 Corinthians 4:13-15, MSG


May His favor be upon you


And a thousand generations


And your family and your children


And their children and their children
