Since the beginning of the year the word “intentional” has constantly been resonating with me. At least once a month I hear it, see it or read it somewhere and it always happens to be when I’m at a point of giving up or doubting what God has promised me. Just tonight I was prompted to read the prophecy that He gave me for 2018, so I thought I would share it again with you:
I have set before you many doors, but know that I AM the door that will lead you to the doors to open. The doors that I have opened, no man can shut. Your character and your obedience is the key that will open the door. Each door that is opened is where I have commanded the multiplied blessing. You will experience exponential spiritual growth individually and in your family. There will be an astronomical abundance of wisdom and insight that will catapult you in your business ventures. The more you give, the greater the blessing. What am I to give you ask? Love. You are to give love to all you encounter. Remember you are created in my image and I AM Love. As you give love, you are actually giving Me, and not only will windows of opportunity open, but doors of influence. 2018 is the year to be ready, not get ready. My blessings are set to come in like a flood and you must be ready to receive. Let go of the past, remove the doubt, expect the unexpected, for what is impossible with man is possible with me. Seek me daily, desire to come up higher in me. I AM the light that will lead you to the open door. Walk in love, walk in integrity, walk in peace, for the year of multiplied blessings and open doors awaits you.
In order for us to see the fulfillment of this prophecy here’s what we need to do:
Invest more time in studying the word. The word strengthens our faith and makes it easier to combat those thoughts that try to cause us to doubt or give in. Check out Romans 10:17.
Never give up! Even when things don’t look like they’re going to work out, stand on God’s word and keep pressing. Check out Philippians 3:14
Totally trust God. Check out Proverbs 3:5-6
Expect the unexpected. Don’t pray if you really don’t expect God to answer. Check out Mark 11:22-24
No is a complete sentence. Don’t be afraid to say no. Know when you are being distracted. Although it may be a God thing, it’s not necessarily a good thing for you at that time. Stay focused. Check out Deuteronomy 5:32
Talk to God daily. Spending time in prayer every day will allow you to receive downloads from heaven, and give you daily direction. Check out John 16:13
Increase your giving. Ask God to show you creative ways to sow your time your gifts/talents, as well as people or ministries where you can give financially. Check out Luke 6:38
Owe no man nothing but love. Financial burdens can hinder you from walking through doors that God wants to open for you. Strive to live by paying cash for everything. This will eliminate stress and allow you to be able to give more love. Check out Romans 13:8 and Proverbs 22:7
Naked. Don’t be afraid to be transparent with others, as well as with God. Your transparency may be the key to someone’s deliverance. Your transparency with God draws Him closer to you. Check out Revelation 12:11, 1 John 1:9 and Genesis 3:9-11, 21
Apply the word. Don’t just read the word or hear the word, but also apply the word. Check our Joshua 1:8 and James 1:22
Love everyone, not just the ones that are easy to love, but even those that make it challenging. Check out 1 John 4:7-11
So I pray that you’ll join me in being intentional about life. Find your purpose and be intentional about fulfilling it. Don’t get distracted by the naysayers, but stay focused until the end.
Be blessed, but first comes obedience!
