And Elijah said unto Ahab, Get thee up, eat and drink; for there is a sound of abundance of rain. So Ahab went up…” 1Kings 18:41-42
Beloved, the prophecy you don’t act on will not come to pass in your life. Acting on prophecy adds weight to your expectation. When Elijah the prophet gave King Ahab a prophecy of abundance of rain and told him to go into the city and enjoy, there was no sign of rain anywhere but King Ahab acted on that prophecy. This year has been declared year of Completion and Perfection. You need to act on that prophecy to see it manifest in your life. Let us look at few ways you can act on the prophecy.
The first is through ACTS OF FAITH. Faith calls things that be not as though they were. Faith makes you live as though you already have what you expect. When you have a promise of a baby, go and buy baby things. If you have received a promise of traveling abroad, go and get a passport. If you are expecting a car, go and buy a key holder. If you are expecting to be married, download the picture of the wedding gown you like and use it as your phone screen lock. Those around you may not understand what you are doing but you are acting on the Word spoken over your life.
Secondly, you need to RESPOND TO THE MONTHLY DECLARATIONS. We are in the month of High Praise, so you must engage in constant praise to enjoy the benefits and blessings of this month. Same goes for other months.
Thirdly, SACRIFICE is required of you. When Elijah told the zarephat woman that she will have surplus in the famine, she responded by giving the prophet the meal she prepared. That unlocked the doors of Heaven over her life and she lived in surplus. Giving your Firstfruit is a sign to God that you are ready for His blessings in your life this year. Until your Firstfruit, tithe, seed of faith, altar seed are dropped on the altar to speak for you, other altars can stop the fulfillment of prophecy in your life. (We will discuss this extensively in subsequent days)
Lastly for now, you need to PRAY it to pass. If Jesus needed Prophetess Anna and Prophet Simeon to pray for Him to come, you need prayer to bring the prophecy over your life to pass. That God said it does not mean it will happen. Pray!
1 Kings 18:1-45
Provision in a strange land
I want to thank God for intervening in my son’s NYSC posting. He was sent to the north but he applied and was reposted to Bayelsa. In Bayelsa, he did not know anybody and there was no job forth-coming for him but as God would have it, I came in contact with an old friend of mine who asked me about my son. I told her that he was serving in Bayelsa and she happened to also be there. That was how God gave my son a job. Praise God!
