{ Day 340 }

Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it. —Mark 16:20

When you receive a prophetic word from someone, you must hold it at arm's length until God Himself confirms it in your heart. If a prophetic minister receives accurate and authentic revelation from God that, for example, you are going to have a street ministry, all they are doing is giving you an advance warning that you personally are going to hear a new direction from God about a street ministry. This prophetic notification is sometimes God's way of confirming ahead of time what you will hear for yourself later on. On other occasions, prophetic words can confirm something you have already heard very clearly. But you should not step out and act on the prophetic word alone if you haven't received the confirmation.

{ PRAYER STARTER }

Father, keep me from allowing false or misdirected prophetic messages and interpretations from entering my spirit. Confirm Your words through others to me and help me to hear only authentic divine revelations from You.

It is important that you know the difference between
what is put forth as divine revelation, what is
confirmed, and what is assumed
to be the interpretation.
