Hear Ye The Word of The Lord

By Martha Noebel


On September 25, 1976, Pat Robertson shared a prophecy the Lord gave him for CBN. Many times I have read portions of this prophecy and felt it speak to my heart. I would like to share parts of this prophecy with you.

"Do not be afraid of the places that I will take you, for I AM a mighty God. My ways are not your ways, and MY thoughts are not your thoughts. But My people, I have called you for this moment.

Walk boldly into the future, for I hold the future, and I AM the future. Fear not what will happen, for I will provide, and I will provide beyond your wildest dreams. I have called you to a ministry beyond anything that you can conceive, and even as you begin to conceive, your thoughts cannot comprehend what I have called you to do, so do not try to think ahead of Me, but only walk with My plans and My purposes, and I will reveal My plans step by step. But you need not be afraid. You can walk confidently, for I the Lord your God have enfolded you with love.

Walk in holiness before Me now, for I have called you for a great and mighty task. Do not look back, and do not fear. Be strong, and be courageous, and do it, saith the Lord your God."

Some time ago, Rev. Jim Cymbala of the Brooklyn Tabernacle spoke in our chapel service on "inquiring of the Lord." He shared how David inquired of the Lord before going into battle. He wanted to make sure God was on his side before he took his men to a war that possibly was not God's plan for them. He wanted to win!

We too want to be winners. We want to know what plans God has for us. We must inquire of the Lord and be willing to do whatever God tells us to do. The prophecy reminds us not to be afraid of the places God will take us. God wants us to know His hand and His heart are toward us. His hand speaks of His provision and His heart speaks of His great love for all of His people.

He wants us to walk boldly into the future. He knows what is ahead and His thoughts for us are good.

How about this part, "I will provide beyond your wildest dreams. I have called you to a ministry beyond anything that you can conceive, and even as you begin to conceive, your thoughts cannot comprehend what I have called you to do" What has God called you to do? Have you asked Him? What are His purposes and plans for your life? Are you listening for His voice today?

He has called us all to do great and mighty things. He is equipping us with everything we need to be successful.

"Do not look back, and do not fear. Be strong, and be courageous, and do it, saith the Lord your God."

Let us pray this prayer to God as Jehoshaphat did:

We do not know what to do, but our eyes are upon you... (II Chronicles. 20:12b NIV).

Inquire of the Lord, hear the Word of the Lord, and as the commercial says, "Just Do It!" For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11)
