“Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know” Jeremiah 33:3
Operating in the prophetic gift has to be intentional. My intention of designating time out of my day to hear from God was starting to look slim. Playing so many roles (wife, mother, sister, daughter, etc), I had to make change in order to make time with God happen. In day to day life, I felt like chances of that was slim.
However, I made a decision to be more intentional. I started a 3 day fast in which I fasted from coffee and from sleep (see my post about fasting here). If you treasure sleeping in, like I do…you definitely know how difficult this can be.
For 3 days, I set my alarm at 5:00am (I snooze at least a couple times before getting up), I get up at 5:30, make a glass of warm lemon water, journal in hand, and meditated on God’s word for 30 minutes in a corner on my couch.
You hear the phrase “God knows every detail of you life,” but did you also know He can tell you very specific things of your life which you may not know?
During day 2 of my fast, specifically, March 13th, 2016, I heard God tell me I was going to be pregnant in Fall.
I jotted a question mark since I was unsure if I heard accurately. I waited through to the very last day of fall in December of 2016 and I was disappointed. The year 2016 was passing, and I wasn’t pregnant yet.
God’s promises are true and I hung to that. And I thought…ya know what? During my meditation, I realized I ONLY assumed I would be pregnant in 2016, but actually NEVER bothered to ask God which year.
Low and behold, fall time, September 26th, 2017, I found out I was pregnant!
My joy came not only from being pregnant, but knowing I heard God in an accurate way. Isn’t that amazing?
It’s a possibility you can hear God accurately as well! They key is relationship and being intentional with your time with Him. There’s a reason why, when a baby is first conceived, after the creation of the embryo, the heart is one of the first things that gets developed. God wants your FULL heart! The heart to trust & listen to all the good promises He has in store for you.
I pray God Blesses you with abundance!
Here is a short prayer to ask God to give you more prophetic revelation in your life:
“Lord Jesus, I want to get to know you more. I ask you give me discipline to intentionally seek Your heart and hear Your Words. Grant me eyes to see and ears to hear Your Voice – loud and clear. I declare more revelation in my life when it comes to the things of You, Lord. Thank you that as days or even minutes go by, you will give me more specific words about my life and the lives of those around me. In Jesus Name, Amen”
