We had a prophet visit our church this week, and I was one of those he prophesied over. I thought my faithful readers might appreciate some of the things he said when he prayed over me. For the sake of brevity, I'm going to cut it up a little. But here are some of the key parts:
"Your frustrations are My frustrations.... You’ve been saying, Lord, I need I breakthrough. I’ve been praying for everybody else, but who is praying for me? I HAVE BEEN PRAYING FOR YOU. Since the day I saved you, I have been on prayer call for you 24/7. I am your intercessor; I am your high priest."
"And so I want you to rise up and know that I am in charge of your life. The steps of a righteous man, and woman, are ordered of the Lord. And so God says My will has not been denied you, neither has it been delayed. You said, Lord I’m sure I’ve been delayed, I’m sure I’m behind times. No you’re not, no you’re not, no you’re not, no you’re not. I’m a big God, a good God, I’ve got you right where I want you, and I’ve been teaching you some critical issues for the next season of your life."
"And the Lord says I now need to let you know that I am going to put a fire on the inside of you.... your bones are gonna burn with a brand new fervor, a brand new fire. And the Lord says you are going to have much to say to your generation. You are going to be like a lava flow... to your generation. You’re going to have a lot to say. I’m gonna give you a verbal gift; I’m going to give you a mouth that they’re not going to be able to shut up, says the Lord."
"You’ve also been asking me for nations. You’ve been saying, Lord, I’ve got this missionary call on me. And so I would like Denny to confirm it. Ok, missionary, missionary, missionary."
I'm sure you can all appreciate the parts about frustrations and delays. I now have the perfect answer to anyone who has a negative reaction to the timing of FB's visit and my move. I'm hoping the part about a verbal gift means I'll be able to communicate clearly in Spanish. And as for missions, I've always been fascinated by, drawn to, missionaries and missions, but was never quite sure about anything for my own life outside the very short term stuff I've done so far.
