Practicing encouragement

  |  0 Comments

robby-dawkinsAnother couple of women from our church go on evangelism shopping trips at Target or the mall. They say to people, “Hey, we’re practicing giving encouraging words from God at our church. Could we practice with you?” This is really effective because where some people might feel defensive about receiving from you, they’re often glad to “help you out” by letting you practice on them. These two ladies then ask God to give them specific encouragements for the people who say yes, and they ask Him for insights about who the people are and what situations they’re facing. The shoppers have been blown away by some of the “encouragements” that have come through these evangelistic women.

The Lord told me?

  |  0 Comments

What must be avoided in any case is people saying “Thus saith the Lord” or the “The Lord told me”. Speaking like this is not only highly presumptuous, but is taking the name of the Lord in vain. It is simply unnecessary to bring the Lord’s name in when we think we have a word for someone. It is using God’s name – the worst possible kind of name-dropping – to elevate our credibility. You are not thinking of the Lord’s credibility but your own when you bring in His name.

Prophesy your day. When you wake in the morning, pray and ask the Lord for information about something that will happen during your day. Write it down as clearly as you understand it. At the end of the day, check and see if the event that you prophesied to yourself happened. Also see how well you understood the specific details of the event (s).

Some people are “feelers” in

  |  0 Comments

Some people are “feelers” in the prophetic. We feel people’s pain, joy, excitement, or other emotion. We feel things from the heart of God. Some people are “seers. We see in pictures and have dreams. We live a life of metaphor and symbolism. Some people are “Hearers”. Sometimes we can move in all three. It is a good thing not to get locked into one methodology. Try to have a varety of ways to receive and deliver prophetic words. After all, God himself is full of infinite variety.

If we do not tame

  |  0 Comments

If we do not tame our tongue, our gift will hit a glass ceiling and level off. Operating in the prophetic takes two things: we must trust God with everything and He must bring us to the place where He can trust us. We can aspire to higher and deeper levels of the prophetic, but the cost of that is controlling our everyday conversations
