The Tremendous Desire Of The Prophet
A Prophet is called by God, not by man.
He or she is called to speak forth in obedience to The Spirit of The LORD. The person can either be accepted or rejected, but the main focus of the Prophet is obedience.
Prophets respect authority in the Church. They recognize that all authority is given and put in place by God.
He or she is not only speaking forth the mind of Christ, they also are responding to the language of The Holy Spirit, which can include interpretations of visions while speaking forth the Word That Is Sent.
The Prophet is very keenly aware of the moving of The Spirit of The LORD, and waits upon The LORD for the timing of when to speak forth what is being given by The Spirit.
Very often, there are different gifts of the Spirit being manifest in the same message. He or she more than likely have tremendous desire to walk the scriptures such as,
“I don’t come to you with persuasive words of man’s wisdom, but to demonstrate the Spirit and the power, so that you confidence will not be in the wisdom of man but in the Power of God.”
as well as,
“Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, says The LORD.”
The Power of God in the life of the Prophet will carry out the Word That is Sent by confirming the Word with signs and wonders following, and confirmations to those to whom the message is intended.
“For the Earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the Glory of The LORD as the waters cover the sea,” Habakkuk 2:14.
The Great Importance of His Voice
God has a way to show us things that are relevant and perfectly timed, not only for His Glory, but also for us to be timely in-tuned for the actions we need to follow up with, for we have to walk by faith, not by sight.
There is a way that may seem right, but The LORD knows the outcome. Therefore being in tune to His Voice is of great importance.
Even in times when we seem hemmed in, home bound, pandemic influenced, social distanced, forced by the times to stay home from our jobs, laid off, whatever the case may be, God has ways for your life to still be filled with His Glory, filled with timely Prophetic Ministry, filled with opportunities for obedience to His Voice.
Our families and friends are still going through the same things that you are experiencing and God is fully aware of this. He is The LORD Who Sees and the God Who Knows.
This reminds me of a vision I had where a large gear is surrounded by a group a small gears and they are all connected to the larger gear.
When the large gear turns one direction, all the other gears turn. When the larger gear turns the other direction, the smaller gears change direction as well.
The larger gear can represent The LORD, where the smaller gears can represent you and I. When we all stay connected to The LORD, all things will be working together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.
When we hear His Voice clearly He will be synchronizing all of our lives in such a way that we will be seeing His Glory being manifest in all of our lives, causing us to rejoice in the hope of our calling.
Is anything too hard for God?
Trust in The LORD with all of your heart, lean not on your own understanding.
Acknowledge Him in everything you do and He will direct your path.
Keep your heart with all diligence for out of the heart come the issues of life, (Proverbs 3:5-6).
