Luke 11: 13 (NIV)
13 “If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him.”
It’s my heart’s desire, that you may receive the Holy Spirit when you seek Him with all your heart. In receiving the Holy Spirit into your own life, you now have the opportunity of magnifying the Lord. In what way, by making the Lord Jesus manifested in our lives.
How? We must become obedient, and we must stay loyal to the Lord Jesus. In Psalm 34 verse 3, we are reminded to magnify the Lord and exalt His name together. You will receive good gifts from the Lord when you ask Him. As you focused on these words today, may the Holy Spirit touch your heart and soul. With praises and worship, we are able to draw near to the Lord. One of the gifts I would love to have is a gift of prophetic messages. So that I may encourage other people on my way.
In 1 Corinthians 14 verses 3, Paul says there are three things a prophetic word must have: “But he who prophesies speaks edification and exhortation, and comfort to men.” Once you hear a prophetic the best way to discern that it is a good word. It should have the following: did it edify, encourage, or comfort you today. Holy Spirit it is my heart’s desire to receive the good gifts from the LORD. I know it cannot be done without You Holy Spirit. Holy Spirit I know You want to work through me, here I am please use me to be someone who encourages and blesses. Pursue love, and desire spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy. 1` Corinthians 14: 1
O Lord, as we come to You today, we pray to ask that You will give us the Holy Spirit. Holy Spirit, thank You for using us to bring words of encouragement and comfort to others through prophecy. Thank You that all children of God can speak or receive a prophetic word. Speak through me today. In Jesus’ name, Amen
