"Do you love Me?" the Lord asked simply.
"That's not fair!" I cried. "You know I do."
"Then if you love Me, will you love My people?"
On that day, it was as if I built an altar. I said yes to God. I said yes to the prophetic.
I told the Lord that He would have to help me because I was clumsy. I would probably make more mistakes than other people.
But I was willing. I was willing to see people the way God saw them, to love people the way He loved them.
I was willing to say the words the Holy Spirit prompted me to say. Are you?
Prophetic ministry is not weird. It's not unnatural. It's naturally supernatural. It ministers to people right where they are by showing them there's a God who knows them, who loves them—and who goes out of His way to communicate with them in the midst of their sin and pain.
God never intended for us to keep the prophetic in a quiet, safe little box called "church." Let's love God and love people enough to speak when the Holy Spirit prompts us. Let's take the prophetic to the streets!
