Prophecy: Stop Talking Yourself Out of What God Has Destined You to Do

by | May 13, 2019 | Blogs, Prophetic Insight

Recently, in a time of corporate prayer, the Lord spoke to me and said, “justified and destined”. I began to ask the Lord to unravel these words to me, and He said, “There are so many people that have talked themselves out of what and justified why they cannot do what I have destined them to accomplish.” Many people have come up with justifications to try to avoid doing what they know they are destined to do.

God has given every single person a beautiful destiny. No matter what, no amount of justifications or excuses will be able to take away the purpose God has given you. It doesn’t matter what your past looks like or what your current situation may look like, it is time for you to stop talking yourself out of what you are destined to do. The enemy will constantly try to make you justify why you cannot do what God has called you to do. The enemy will try to use every circumstance, every insecurity and anyone he can to talk you out of your calling. But don’t listen to him! God has given you special gifts and has placed His approval upon you. Therefore, you can do all that He has called you to do. We simply need to have a genuine “yes!” in our spirit, and God will accomplish it through us. We need to live our lives in such a way that we always give God our yes, no matter what He may ask of us. There is no time for excuses!

Do not believe the lies others have spoken over you. Never allow man to disqualify you from what God has qualified and destined you for. Many people lack confidence and are afraid they are going to mess up. When you choose to believe and rest in the truth of God’s love, you will be secure in the love of God, in your relationship with the Lord and in your calling. You will have the confidence and boldness to go after the promises God has made to you and the words He has spoken over your life. Insecurity must go out of your life in the name of Jesus.

Don’t justify why you cannot do what you are called to do. Begin to justify why you can! You are qualified, called and destined. This is a season where you must push past your excuses and justification, the lies others have spoken over you and overcome every insecurity. It is time for you to move forward and live out the calling on your life, knowing that you are destined by God to do great exploits! {eoa}
