“But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.” Heb. 5:14
I was in a prayer meeting a few months ago and a man, who was also a prophet, shared and an obscure passage that was rather innocuous. But he was able to bring new life to this passage and as he did the Spirit of the Lord spoke to me and said, “He’s a meat eater. “I took note of this word as I had never heard the Spirit say this before.
I’m always impressed with those who labor in the word and are able to redeem golden nuggets from God’s word. The scripture says, “Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.” 1 Tim. 5:17.
When a prophet values what has been spoken (the scripture) as well as what God is speaking, He is able to weld that two edge sword of God’s word masterfully. He becomes safe with his prophetic gifting and very dangerous to the powers of darkness. When someone becomes skillful in the word and has prophetic gifting you create safe guards in your own life for God to use you with His message and Your gifting won’t destroy you by becoming puffed up and full of yourself. Place value on what He has said and not just in what He is saying and see where He takes you. 🙏Father, give us a love for the scriptures. Cause them to change us as we read them. Help us to place value on them always. I ask in the name of Jesus, Amen. Pastor Rusty
