Activating Prophetic Grace

Blog

This is why it is so important that individuals and groups prepare themselves to activate and appropriate prophetic grace. This blog is designed to help you with that task.
How do you begin to move in prophetic grace?

First, you must earnestly desire to prophesy.
Earnestly desire spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy
(1 Corinthians 14:1, NASB). Don’t just embrace that this gift is for today; believe that the prophetic gift and grace is for you personally. Desire it. Dream about giving others powerful, accurate, prophetic encouragement. Some would say, “I don’t know if this giftis for me” or “I am not very prophetic.” Remember God’s dream—that every son and daughter would prophesy. God made that dream possible for you by pouring out His Spirit on all people. Do not in any way disqualify yourself. Embrace the grace that is yours through the sacrifice of Christ and the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Instead, say to yourself: “I was created for this. This is my gift. This is my grace. I was made to prophesy.”

Don’t just embrace that this gift is for today; believe that the prophetic gift
and grace is for you personally. Desire it. Dream about giving others powerful, accurate, prophetic encouragement. Some would say, “I don’t know if this gif is for me” or “I am not very prophetic.”

Break ties with any past negative connections with the prophetic.
Do not treat prophecies with contempt (1 Thessalonians 5:20).
Many people share that they have had a bad experience with those who
mishandled prophetic grace. Others have heard stories of believers being
manipulated into marrying the wrong person, quitting a good job, or giving
away their life savings through false prophetic guidance. You may have eve grown up in a religious tradition that taught that these gifts were no longer
for today, and anyone who practices these gifts is moving by the power of the devil. Thoughts like these, along with feelings of spiritual inadequacy, can leave us with contempt for prophecy. You must break ties with fears, and hurt. Mistakes have indeed been made in the Body of Christ, both through wrong practice and wrong theology.

Nevertheless, it is time to forgive. It is time to heal. It is time to move on in our own God-given destiny. Don’t let the mistakes of others hold you back from being part of God’s dream. If you have had negative connections with prophecy, break them right now through repentance, forgiveness, and declarations of personal faith.

Ask for, believe, and receive the gift of prophecy.
For everyone who asks receives…(Luke 11:10). You may ask, how do I know I will receive? Be confident in God’s Word which promises that everyone who asks will receive. Let’s expand the above verse from Luke.
For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened. Which of you fathers, if your son asks for a fish, will give him a snake instead? Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? 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!
(vs.10-13)
There are so many fear-of-receiving issues addressed in this passage. The
first fear addressed is being afraid that you might not receive. God clearly
answers this with the simple phrase, “Everyone who asks receives.”
The second fear God addresses is the fear that one could receive something
evil from the devil when asking the Father for the Holy Spirit. God uses the
common metaphors of the snake and the scorpion to represent the devil. He basically says that if you ask for something good from your Father in Heaven, He will not give you something from the evil one. You can be confident that when you ask for something good, God will protect that transaction. God is a certified secure site for heavenly transactions.
Finally, God addresses the fear that you have not been good enough to
receive or that you don’t deserve this blessing. God’s gifts to us are based
upon His goodness, not ours. God is a good Father who knows how to give
good things to His children. If you have never asked God for the gift of prophecy, then do so right now. Ask with confidence knowing that you will receive a good thing from a good Father. Begin to receive His gift to you by faith. You are receiving God’s grace to operate in a certain aspect of God’s divine character, power, and nature. Be assured in your heart that something very real and powerful is happening regardless of what you do or do not feel.

Act upon the gift and grace you have received.

Do not neglect your gift, which was given you through a prophetic
message when the body of elders laid their hands on you (1 Timothy
4:14). Fan into flame the gift…(2 Timothy 1:6). Many people wait for some irresistible urge to use their spiritual gifts. God is not looking for robotic followers who have no choice but to obey the commands given. God has always been looking for family, friends, and partners. The supernatural is always God’s “super” and your “natural.”
