{ Day 303 }

If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. —1 Corinthians 13:2

Most prophetic people don't have the gift of leadership that is essential for a church to be healthy, balanced, and safe. A church led only by prophets is not a safe environment for God's people. One of the most important things to do in a church that wants to nurture and administrate prophetic ministry is to dial down the mysticism and the carnal desire to look superspiritual. We need to keep our eyes off people and remain focused on Jesus and His purpose for us. This is not a spiritual beauty contest, but it can turn into one very quickly if people see gifts as merit badges rather than something to bless the church. The fact that power and revelation flow through prophetic ministers is not necessarily a sign that God is pleased with the other areas of their lives. Sometimes the prophetic gifts will continue to operate even when there is an inner crumbling taking place in their private lives.


Father, keep my eyes focused on the true revelations You want to give to Your people. Cause me to desire nothing more than growing in my love and intimacy with You. Build Your church in whatever manner and with whomever You choose to use.

It is not about the vessel. It's about loving
the Lord and building up His church.
