I admit, I go to a church where the gift of prophecy is very alive and well. This is good. I have looked at others and seen pain and God has brought scripture to my mind at that time. I pray for that person and claim that verse for them. I haven’t begun to do this out loud yet, except over my daughter.
Today is a different day. I had another “trial” 2 days ago and have been recuperating ever since. The trial concerned our showing of the big house and asking God to sell it.
As I watched a Christian show today, the speaker said to “prophecy over yourself”. He said to stand up, believe and prophecy (as if I was Elijah.) Prophecy as if I had the Holy Spirit in me….It struck me as so real, I did it. I claimed the authority through Jesus’ blood and joint heir-ship. Don’t mind my making up words. You get the message. I put my 3 fingers on the top of my head and prophesied two major aspects. I felt power. I was thanking Jesus.
Right then, my hubby texted me there was to be another house showing in a couple hrs. Woot! Surely this was in lieu of answered prayer and prophecy coming true….I called my hubby to tell him I just prayed and prophesied. I was so happy. I wanted to share the happiness with him. Almost as I spoke, he told me he got a text saying never mind. No house showing today. The agent canceled.
I got off the phone, asked God what happened, and claimed this as spiritual warfare and I bound the Enemy out of our lives and plans in Jesus’ name.
We await closing on house number one while God provides. Our faith is growing and I am not as prone to lose my sanity as months ago.
