{ Day 306 }

Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet's own interpretation. For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit. —2 Peter 1:20-21

Methodology or ministry style does not produce power or anointing. Because you were standing in a certain place doing a certain thing when God spoke, moved, or healed doesn't mean that the circumstances had anything to do with it. Nevertheless, people find themselves trying to re-create the setting so they can see God's power again. I've seen all kinds of people from all over the body of Christ imitating styles and methods because they think that the method is the key. But the person of the Holy Spirit is the key to operating in the power of God. We have to beware constantly of thinking that if we get the early morning prayer meeting going just the way it was before and the same worship leader back up there with those same anointed songs, then maybe God will do the comet thing again. That's spiritual superstition.


Spirit, speak through me in any way You choose. Keep me from creating methods or mannerisms or styles for rating acceptable prophecy. Give me the clear vision to hear Your voice through others without attempting to judge their delivery style.

Prophetic people are often tempted to think
that their particular method and style
is essential to the anointing
working through their lives.
