My Two Cents ….

One thing I have noticed (if I can share my two cents) … is how lethargic people are to prophecy. The word tells us not to despise prophecy another version says not treat prophecy with contempt. Even in the old testament people told the prophets to stop prophesying!
Most of us run to horoscopes and fortune tellers and palm-readers, taro cards and the like but never think to seek the Creator of all things for direction and to know what the future holds for them.
Prophecy wasn’t given to us to simply “tickle our fancy” but to set our lives in motion, to unlock things, to establish, to encourage, edify and comfort and to give direction. Prophecy helps you set focus, tells you what’s worth fighting for and what just isn’t worth it. Paul told Timothy to keep the prophecies made about him and to recall them so that he may fight the battle well.
Without a vision/prophetic vision people perish. It is important for us to know what God’s thoughts toward us are so we do not settle and conform to just anything an anyone. It is important to know what God wants to establish in our lives so that we don’t waste time with dead things. It is important that we know where God wants to take us so that we don’t wonder around the mountain for 40years!

I dare you all to seek out the word of the Lord for your lives.

p.s. Yes, He is a know it all

Prayers of the Heart …

The prayer of my heart this morning was …. It is my desire to love you more.

It is my desire to love you.

If there is anything that will keep me from you …then I do not want it

If my name being known keeps me from spending time with you …. then I do not want it

If the money, houses and cars make me forget you …. then I do not want it

I posture my heart before you

and on the altar of my heart I lay my

will, my plans, my desires, my thoughts, my fears and insecurities

Send your fire your Lord…

to burn them away

Replace them with your will, with your plans, with your desires

Replace them with your thoughts

Replace my thoughts of myself with the thoughts you have toward me

Keep me in a place of longing for you

Keep a conviction and void until I spend my time with you

until I hear your voice.

For my desire is to hear you, to speak with you.

Speak Lord for your servant is listening.
