HOLDING ONTO THE PROPHETIC WORD

Sep 1, 2023

Hebrews 1:3 who being the brightness of [His] glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power…

Psalms 107:20 He sent His word and healed them, And delivered [them] from their destructions.

Every time God has a mission, He sends His Word. Whatever you are trusting God for; preservation, healing, restoration, protection, or a miracle, is all packaged in the sent Word of the Lord and as you hold onto the Word, the energy in it will be distributed into your system and before you know it, the Word will produce results in your life.

Any attack of the devil on your life is on the Word, he doesn’t want you to trust the Word that the Lord has given you so he will do whatever it takes to make you doubt and release it.

Jeremiah 1:11-12 Moreover the word of the LORD came to me, saying, “Jeremiah, what do you see?” And I said, “I see a branch of an almond tree.” Then the LORD said to me, “You have seen well, for I am ready to perform My word.”

It is the sent Word that God watches over. The only way that satan can get you off God’s agenda is to let you doubt the Word which God has given you and that is exactly what satan did to the first man in the garden of Eden (Genesis 3:1).

2 Timothy 2:1-3(GN) You therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also. You therefore must endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.

No matter what is happening around you or in your environment, you must hold onto the Word because the power to bring transformation and alignment is packaged in the Word that God has given you.

Fight everything contrary to what the Word is telling you. Timothy had become dormant and lazy, it looked like the prophetic Word that God had given him was not coming forth until Paul encouraged him (2 Timothy 1:6).

Isaiah 55:10-11 ” For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, And do not return there, But water the earth, And make it bring forth and bud, That it may give seed to the sower And bread to the eater, So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth…

When God’s Word is sent, wherever it is believed and put into action, it will begin to bring forth fruits. You engage the Word through prayer and as you begin to pray, you receive revelation of the Word and as you act on it, you begin to realize the manifestation of the promises of God.

Genesis 12:1 Now the LORD had said to Abram: “Get out of your country, From your family And from your father’s house, To a land that I will show you.

The Word of God had come to Abraham many years before but he had not acted on it. This time the Word came again and the more he journeyed with God, the more revelation was given to him and the working knowledge of the Word kept him moving on.

Many of you are stuck in one place: waiting for direction. Begin to move and then you will begin to hear the voice of God telling you;” turn left, turn right, move forward or backward”. This is what we call the practical application of the sent Word in your spirit.

2 Peter 1:19(NIV) We also have the prophetic message as something completely reliable, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.

As we pray, fast and seek God, pay attention to the Word which God has given because it is reliable. That Word will light up your darkness because as you pray around it, revelation, understanding, and direction will come (Joshua 1:8).

This Word will begin to guide, direct, and limit your sphere of operation and it is within that place that everything that God desires of you is found.

Matthew 15:24 But He answered and said, “I was not sent except to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.”

Jesus knew why He came to the world and that Word or knowledge kept His ministry within Judea, there were needs outside it but the Word framed the circumference of His ministry to Judea.

Many have fallen victim because they stepped outside the jurisdiction of the Word of the Lord that was given to them for their work, family, and living.

Today, I pray that once again you will pay attention to that Word because everything (family, career, children, etc) that God has for you is packaged in that prophetic Word that God has given you concerning your life.

STAY BLESSED AND HIGHLY FAVORED, WE LOVE YOU.
