FIND THE GOLD
Prophetic ministry is not to be focused on the sins of the world.
It takes very little discernment to find the dirt in people’s lives.
The prophetic in its purest form is designed to find the gold in people’s lives and call it to the surface.
A Daily Invitation to Friendship With God By Bill Johnson
Today as I was reading I came across a very simple but to me profound an conforming statement, because it speaks the very heart of our ministry and my passion. I love seeing our Sons and Daughters Rise and Shine it is the greatest joy I have ever known.
I get my greatest Joy finding the passion in others and helping them to put it into action. I have been doing for as long as I have been saved I think, I love to see people flow in their gifts and step into the destiny that God has for them is an incredible blessing.
I love the whole wonderful idea of seeing in someone what they cant see or believe about themselves. . I know we all struggle with the idea that God could use us to do amazing and wonderful things and change lives.
I also know that if were not for the very special people in my life and in different seasons that saw in me what I still can’t see I would have never believed it was ever possible to even a small measure of what I have the privilege to do every day..
I am so very Grateful to have been inspired to dream big, believe for more, know how to Hear Gods voice and SAY YES whenever He asks because every yes has taken me father than anything else I have ever done. I learned that in the Going God will use you in unbelievable ways and every time you are stretched you find more of Gods goodness in your life.
As I was read the devotional this morning and it reminded me that sometime I believe around 1995 the Lord gave myself and my best friend Chuck Sweet the same scripture
Numbers 23:19 (NKJV)
19 “God is not a man, that He should lie,
Nor a son of man, that He should repent.
Has He said, and will He not do?
Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?
20 Behold, I have received a command to bless;
He has blessed, and I cannot reverse it.
The statement here seems to make the same point and it is amazing to me that after all these years it is still my passion and heart to bless and not curse, I believe it is far more Rewarding to see someone’s life changed by telling them what God thinks about them and not point out there sins or weaknesses. I think Toby Mac also said it well. Speak Life, you can change a heart with the words You Say..
So I will finish with this thought, are you looking ti find the gold in others or is it about You ?
Are you seeing your Sons and Daughters with the Fathers heart?
I believe that we can truly equip and transform this generation to Disciple the nations When we Love Like God Loves, Speak with a Fathers Heart.
Last Thought for you, If God does not have a negative thought about you or me , then how is it that we are able to use our words to speak and judge, say things to those we love and use scripture and justify it by putting His Name on it ?
