As leaders we are called to lead people to become expressions of God’s life to others that activates others to become expressions of God’s life to others in their world. When God speaks, life happens! When God expresses something of Himself to our world, life happens in our world. As God’s children, we must be expressions of life to our world. When we speak, it should activate life in those we speak to.
We can only speak in accordance with what we can see. We speak what we hear. What we see can affect what we hear and what we seek to listen to will affect what we see. For this reason, we must be a prophetic people. We must speak those things that come from the realm of eternal life in Christ.
Prophetic ministry is not about information. It is a matter of intimacy with God that releases the power of His transformation in our lives. God wants to give us life and He wants us to give life to others in our world. Sometimes there are influences in life that hinder us from hearing God. God will often use the ministry of the prophetic to help us hear Him in those times. He will use an external voice to activate His internal voice in our hearts. His objective is always love and an intimate connection to Him as His children of light. God wants us to be one with Him – to be connected to Him relationally.
Matthew 4:4 But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’ “
When Jesus was being confronted by the devil in the wilderness, His strength to overcome was not rooted in His supernatural abilities. It was rooted in His personal connection to God as His Father. He set this example for us all and He opened the door for all of humanity to have this same grace to overcome all things in life. It is the place of hearing God from within. The word is not merely written in the Scriptures. It is the word of the character, nature, way, power, and authority of God written in our hearts and minds through a personal relationship with God as our Father. When Jesus said, “It is written”; I believe He was talking about it being written in His heart and mind. I don’t believe He was merely quoting the Torah; the Torah (Law) was a witness of Him. His personal connection with God made Him an overcoming testimony of God’s word to others.
God is constantly communicating with us through the intricate expressions of His creation. That expression is not about information, it is about life!
Romans 1:20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse.
The expression of creation is not about information. It is about life. The winter season communicates a time of rest, and even hibernation for creatures in the forest so that they can be prepared to birth new life in the spring. The spring season isn’t about information to the forest. It is a wakeup call to the forest for the sake of being alive. New life springs forth to activate new life, and more life, in the forest. Communication is part of God’s nature because His heart’s intent is to bring life to the world. He is not interested in informing us concerning truth. He is truth for the sake of us coming alive in Him, and because of Him!Donations can be made at the link on the home site of:
