{ Day 341 }

So Paul and Barnabas spent considerable time there, speaking boldly for the Lord, who confirmed the message of his grace by enabling them to do miraculous signs and wonders. —Acts 14:3

Revelation itself is not going to help the body unless it goes through the process of interpretation and application. The interpretation may be accurate, but if a person jumps the gun and gets ahead of God in the application, a considerable amount of hurt and confusion may result. Consequently, there is as much need for divine wisdom in the interpretation and application as there is in the revelation. God never works as fast as people think He should. Don't get involved with prophetic people and words if you are not willing to wait on God to bring them to pass. God will declare His intention through the prophetic gift, but if the application is not in His timing, you'll find yourself trying to step through a door that is not open. The way is not yet prepared, and the grace is not yet sufficient.

{ PRAYER STARTER }

Father, help me to understand that when Your Spirit speaks through Your prophets to Your people, we must clearly know how You desire Your people to apply those words to our lives. Don't let me get ahead of You or fail to respond when You speak to me.

God never works as fast as
people think He should.
