Now that you have your list of promises, read it like it’s a letter from God. These are things He wants to do for you. Claim them as promises. Remind God that He promised. If you get a word that you brush aside, or never believe, chances are great that you never will see it fulfilled. God’s promises are true. You can trust them. But you need to give life to them by believing them and expecting them to happen. I get excited every time I read through my list. I can’t wait to see these things start to happen. They may not happen for years, but I’m still excited and I thank God all the time for what He’s promised. He’s so generous because He wants to be real in my life. And the more I believe Him for, the more He’ll do for me, in me, and through me.
When ever you get a prophetic word, write it down immediately so you don’t forget any part of it. If you can record it even better. If you do record it, transcribe it. There’s something about hearing, writing, and seeing it that helps you understand it better. Pull out the key words and phrases and list them. Then group them by subject. I date them as well. By grouping the key words together, you can see how God has repeatedly given you the same promise over time. If you’ve had several prophetic words over the years, you’ll have an astonishing list of promises that will bring a smile to your face every time you read it. Ok, so I have my list, now what?
We know that God talks to us all the time. It’s His desire to see you mature and fully equipped to be who you were meant to be. Sometimes He uses other people to help you along the way. 1 Corinthians 14 talks about the need and relevance of prophecy in the church. God can speak to other people who can give you His thoughts about you. It is truly amazing to hear how loving and generous He is. Humbling, in fact. You may be tempted to not believe it. That would be the enemy trying to rob you of blessing. Dismiss it. Even if the word is beyond the scope of your reality, receive it and hold on to it. In the next part, I’ll talk about what to do with it.
Isaiah 9:6 calls Jesus Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. When people read that out loud, I always hear Wonderful Counselor, like He’s a really good counselor. But reading it with the comma is more fun. His name is Wonderful. Dear Wonderful, thank you for a great day. Be with me, Wonderful, I need some amazement in my life. It’s just a great name. And He would have the best business card:
Wonderful, Fun Technician
Contact: just pray
And it would have three-dimensional fireworks that shoot off of it. And if you carried that card with you everywhere, your life would be…wonderful. He’s just good at that. I’m so glad my God’s name is Wonderful. He’s the best.
Not only is Jesus Wonderful, He’s the Lamb of God: The Lamb of God is Adorable
