Ye The Word Of The Lord
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.
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
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
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
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."
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).
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
