The Spirit of Prophecy

“For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy” (Rev 19:10)

If you really want to make an impact… then allow God to transform your problems into testimonies! Telling people about the miracles happening in your life makes God more real and believable to the person who is struggling. It causes faith to engage in those who hear what God is doing in you.

Making Him Visible:

People begin to see miracles in their own lives, because of what God does for you. As we watch this process develop in others we begin to discover how the spirit of prophecy actively effects those around us. We rarely consider the fact that we have the authority to release God’s mercy to everyone around us… but it is a Kingdom promise for the child of God.

When we read in the Bible that God is able to do the miraculous, it means He has the power to do it! But when we hear somebody’s testimony, it means God is still doing it! He has the will to do these miracles in the here and now. Its an invitation to believe He will do it for you! The big difference in our perception actually draws us into expectation. We feel invited into the same experiences that we hear about.

Paul said it this way, “faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God” (Rom 10:17).

Remind yourself that God’s Word is His will for you! Its His testimony. God is able! There is no deficiency in His power. The deficiency may not be in your faith, but in your testimony. Believing that He “can do” what needs to be done in our life is not enough, we must be enforcers of a victory that has already been won. He may work in totally unexpected ways, but He will work with supernatural power and give you something to talk about.

The World is watching your Christianity: Give them something to talk about!

New Every Morning

“This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is Thy faithfulness.”  (Lamentations 3:21-23)

It may be difficult, but we must try to comprehend mercy. Why? Because God’s mercy is the platform for seeing our potential. The dictionary defines mercy as- ”a disposition to be kind and forgiving; to show undeserved compassion and kindness”. This is the approach God takes towards us… He is good, kind and forgiving! He does not give us what we deserve.

Everyday - a New Day:

One of the most wonderful gifts of mercy is a fresh start, a clean slate, a new beginning… everyday. To know that all of the sins and mistakes of yesterday are behind you and today is untouched by anything, but your imagination.

Every morning God offers us the opportunity to awaken our hearts to His faithfulness, rather than our frailties. None of us can go back to yesterday and change actions or words spoken. We can’t undo or retract things that have been done. Yet, we have the opportunity to start today with a renewed heart and with new decisions. That is the powerful reality of mercy! When we confess our sins and weaknesses God is faithful to forgive us (1 Jn. 1:9), wiping clean the offenses against us.

A Fresh Supply:

Determination falls short and desire alone is not enough, but we have been given a fresh supply of God’s renewable recources. In ourselves, changes are often impossible, but as God’s mercies fill our imagination so does His freedom fill our first steps. Each day God will give us a fresh supply… mercy can be applied to whatever need we may encounter. His guidance and correction will help us learn from yesterday’s mistakes and his strength will give us the ability to change and be different (1 Cor. 2:16). How wonderful to know that when I wake up I will not have exhausted the Lord’s mercies on yesterday’s battles, struggles or needs. He will have a new supply waiting for me today. 

“Great is Thy Faithfulness - Great is Thy Faithfulness. Morning by morning new mercies I see. All I have needed Thy hand has provided. Great is Thy Faithfulness, Lord unto me.”
