The dignity of life is taking responsibility of your destiny. Your destiny is not in the hands of any man but in the control of any man but in your control. Countless prophecies might have been declared to you by several men of God. To stop eating crumbs in any of your endeavors in life, you must take your responsibilities seriously. This entails that you must take God’s words to prayers, this means doing warfare with the words you have heard.
«Timothy, my child, I entrust to you this command, which is in accordance with the words of prophecy spoken in the past about you. Use those words as weapons in order to fight well and keep your faith and a clear conscience. «1 Timothy 1:18 (TEV)
Prophecy, what is it?
Prophecy can be defined as the revealed plan or thought of God through an inspired man of God for the benefits of a person, group of persons, country or a nation. In other words it means the speaking forth of God’s mind as well as the counsel of God. Thus it implies speaking forth into the future what God has declared in his words or by his prophets about you. You aligned your life with destiny when you speak forth the word of God relevant to your situation. Prophecy is mainly a declaration of that which is not known to the senses or known by natural means. It is speaking forth of the will of God to the present or the future. So prophecy is a tool for resurrection, recovery and restoration (Ezekiel 37:1)
You must believe: It is essential that you believe or trust the prophet of God and his words. When you declare what has been told about your present or future, you need to believe it and declare it, then you would see its manifestation.
Use faith: «And without faith it is impossible to please God….»
You must know that it is not enough to believe in the prophecy. You are expected to go a step further by ‘ACTING’ out what you believe so that you can enjoy its reality. Faith is the force that turns prophecy into reality. Remember the woman with the issue of blood for 12 years? (Mark 5:28)
Activate the power of the tongue: «The tongue has the power of life and death….» PROVERBS 18:21
You must understand your tongue is loaded with power. Your tongue is anointed so use it to maximize your advantage. Declare what you want. If you want to leave your present status, you need to engage your mouth to pronounce your desires. Declare your tomorrow now.
Work diligently: «…if a man will not work, he shall not eat.» 2 Thess. 3:10)
Your present profession or work is an avenue through which God can make the prophecy of abundance to be a reality. Diligence does kill but laziness does.
Pray more: The prayer of a good person has a powerful effect.»
You can pray prophecies into manifestation. When you travail on your knees in prayer you will birth your earnest desires. The place of prayer cannot be over emphasized. When you are consistent in your prayer life the ground is being watered for the manifestation of prophecies.
