Today at church the message was living as a prophetic people. This got me thinking about communicating with God. And I started to think about my daily communications with God and realised that sometimes I forget to talk to god about the situations I’m going through. When we get busy in our day to day lives we can sometimes forget to include God. When in fact he should be at the centre of it all.
Who God is
Our God is not a dormant God, he is not a loveless God, nor is he a silent God. Our God is alive, loving and he speaks! When we pray to God we aren’t just giving our problems to him, we are asking for a reply we are asking for that relationship with him. I don’t know about you but it’s kinda hard to have a relationship with someone who doesn’t reply to you and talk to you. The amazing thing is, is that God can speak to you prophetically. So he won’t just intrude in your life, he will wait patiently to be asked into your life and to talk to you.
He will pop into your head sometimes with the most bizarre things. For example a few years ago a picture popped into my head of a boat full of people. This was totally random and I was stuck with this image of people in a boat and the people in the boat where trying to balance their weight out whilst the boat was in the thrashing waves. The words which came to me were “Steady Your Boat when troubles come your way”. This stuck with me and every time I’m in deep waters and I’m unsure of the outcome of my situations I just remember that God has already told me to Steady My Boat.
God spoke to me with this and told me to steady my boat when troubles come my way, therefore communicating my problems with God, relying on him and his word to pull me out of the situations. With this I have overcome Anxiety, Depression and Stress. This is major! I have been on anti-depressants and counselling and now I have finished and overcome that chapter of my life because of three little words. Steady Your Boat.
These words where comforting and encouraging when all seemed lost and negative. They brought me out of my dark room into light and that light is Jesus. The words came to me prophetically and they have left such an impact on me and my life. I now have a website and small business and lots of wonderful adventures all in the name of Steady Your Boat! And now I am feeing brave enough to share this message with the world. Therefore this piece will be shared on the website and on social media.
Becoming a Christian is the most difficult thing I have ever done but it so worth it! Having that special relationship with God is what we were created for. To know we are not alone, he is there supporting us.
The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still.”
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
I am thankful for the grace and peace the Lord has gifted me with. And the prophetic words and picture he has laid on my heart. If you have a prophetic word you would like to share. Leave a message below or contact us on the contact page.
Thank you for reading how Gods word and prophetic wonders have changed my life for the better.
