If you read through the entire scripture, you will see the blessings that will begin to flow. I have discovered that one of the most important things we need to do is to position ourselves and until you begin to look at prophetic praying as a process of divine positioning, you may not value the place of prayer. The place of prayer is one of the most neglected areas in the Church today. The Bible says, “men ought always to pray, and not to faint” Luke 18:1B. Prayer is strategic spiritual positioning and that is exactly what we are doing – positioning ourselves so that all things will work together for our good.
Prophesy into your life right now –
- “Starting from now, all things will begin to work for my good in the name of Jesus; all circumstances, everything created – the moon, the stars, the water, the air, the firmament – everything will work together for my good. All things will collaborate for my success; everything created will begin to collaborate right now for my progress, for my success, for my advancement and for my goodness in the name of Jesus.”
It is important for us to realize that the moon does not have any light of its own; all it does is to position itself along the axis of the sun and so becomes a reflector of every light that comes from the sun. That is how our lives should be as children of God; just position yourself in line with God’s purpose as enunciated in his word. The word of God is light, the word of God is life so anyone who rejects light is dead because light is life. That is why we need to place more value on the study of the word of God this year that we may carry enough light inside of us so that when we speak, we speak light, when we speak, we speak life, when we speak, we speak truth and the word of God is truth according to John 17:17. Everything good is packed in the Word; we need to feast on it.
You can tell a carnal person by his appetite. Tell me what you crave and I will tell you who you are! You can identify a child of God who is not growing by his pursuits. You are becoming what you are eating. What did you eat last year that you need to change? The things that developed your physical muscles but whittled down your spiritual muscles last year, take note of them; they are not good food for you this year if you want to do exploit; if you want to arise and shine.
There are things you need to drop in order to shine; make a list of them. If the devil is trying to tell you to park that you have tried, know that he only wants to finish you. What have you achieved? What have you done? Time is running out! One of the biggest lies that the devil tells people is that there is time. Anybody who wants to shine must arise early; get up and get going. One of Jesus’ secrets was that he never overslept. Long before dawn he was up; he would leave ground zero and position himself in order to commune with the Father so that he could minister. In the presence of his Father, he received consolidation, fortification, strategies, the anointing, he connected and when he opened his mouth the glory of God was revealed. The glory cannot be revealed until you learn to connect to the Father through Christ.
