Living a Prophetic Lifestyle

Do you think of the prophetic only as a “church” thing? Do you only talk about prophecy at church services or conferences and then forget about it? Well I’m telling you that the prophetic wasn’t meant to stay within the four walls of a church. It was meant for any environment. It’s a lifestyle! I’m not saying to go out and give personal prophecies to strangers with no supervision. Of course, we shouldn’t be doing that. However, there are ways to bring the prophetic into practical areas. Here are just three simple ways we could do this. There are many more as well.

1.    Ask God to add the “supernatural” to your natural. Apostle Ricci has said this. The prophetic could be attached to anything done in the natural such as singing, drawing, painting, writing etc. If you ask the Holy Spirit to lead you, he will supernaturally enhance your natural ability. The key is to not doubt. I remember doing this most consistently during my senior year of high school. I made it a habit to ask God to help me with my school work and everything I was involved in. I spoke in my heavenly language and prayed prophetically. Taped onto the inside of my locker was the verse “I commit all that I do to the Lord and my plans will succeed” Proverbs 16:3. I believed it. As a result, senior year was my most successful year of high school in every way. I took harder classes than any other year but did better. (Of course, I still had to study). Unfortunately, I can’t say that I continued that habit throughout all of college. However, I do know that this works if you have faith God could do it.   

2.    Ask God for wisdom concerning situations at your home, school or job.  If you encounter a problem at home, school or work, specifically ask God to give you wisdom on how to solve it. This may not seem like a prophetic thing but it is. Being prophetic is simply hearing the voice of God. God may give you wisdom by giving you a thought or idea that you wouldn’t think of on your own or he could give you the thought in a dream. This could even be done with simple problems, such as finding a lost item. I have prayed to God on several occasions to help me find lost items and he showed me visually where they were.

3.    Speak prophetically to unbelievers. Everyone needs to hear an encouraging word, especially those who don’t know Jesus. Ask God to give you the words to say to unbelievers-both to witness to them and encourage them. Ephesians 4:29 says ”Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.” Allow the Holy Spirit to guide you to give general words of prophecy. Even one word could bring great encouragement to a person. Students at the Samuel Elijah Prophetic College learn this. They participate in activations where they just give one word or one sentence to another person. They depend on the Holy Spirit to give them the word. This will help lead unbelievers to the Lord because they will know that He personally cares about them.     

            In the year 2018, let’s try to deliberately live a prophetic lifestyle, both inside and outside of the church. It will make a great difference in our lives and will bring God glory. God bless!

  1. What a blessing this Word is, Glory to God!! Thank you

  2. The prophetic is truly intertwined with our relationship with Jesus. Hearing what Father tells us is the easy part. Acting on it is a a little tougher, but when we ask the guidance of the Holy Ghost in our lives, thing DO go a lot easier, don't they?
