DAY 4: God Wants Us To Know His Will
How do we properly discern and interpret the direction that we are to go in, the people whom we are to be surrounded by, and the adventures that we are to embark on? We must begin to answer this question with one basic premise: God wants us to know His will more than we want to know it! He is not withholding information or guidance from us. In fact, He has provided multiple platforms upon which to communicate His desires for our lives.
Religious spirits have enforced a false image of God as a distant being, someone who is far off, shrouded in mystery, and far too advanced for simple human beings to understand. Embracing this false thinking about the Lord makes it difficult for us to believe God for direction and receive His leading. The heart of God throughout the ages has always been to draw us, His beloved, close to Him! In fact, all throughout Scripture He communicates His willingness to be near to us in all seasons.
It is time to change our thinking, renew our minds, and break the lie that God is distant. He is right here! Our loving Father has an abundance of wisdom and guidance for us.
DAY 3: The Importance of God’s Words
Each and every insight that God provides for you is important. The result of the revelation will often be determined by your reply and response. If you just think on it for a day or two and then let it go, you will probably miss the full effect of the oil on that word. If you write, record, and then go back to it with prayer and seeking strategy, you will keep pressing that word and extract the oil.
Sometimes you are struggling and need a breakthrough. God will send a word to you that contains bondage-breaking power. It may not be a word that has long-term application but is sent for that very moment. Some words frame times and seasons. There have been times in my life that I keep pondering a word over and over, and each time I got more application. It becomes a mission statement for a season of my supernatural journey.
There are other words that are very specific and hold instruction for a particular assignment. All of these things must be prayed out and discerned. This is why recording, writing, and praying over supernatural revelations is so critical. To become a person who walks in the supernatural, you must learn to place emphasis and value on insight and revelation.
