Lord, thou hast heard the desire of the humble: thou wilt prepare their heart, thou wilt cause thine ear to hear. —PSALM 10:17
Great revelation doesn’t come without preparation. You cannot plant an acorn in concrete and expect to grow a majestic oak tree. In the same way, you cannot expect great revelation until you have prepared your heart to receive it. The soil of your heart must be prepared to receive the seed of God’s Word. Your heart’s soil is prepared by repentance, prayer, study of the Word, worship, and seeking God’s face.
Revelations are released for specific needs at certain times. The Reformation was based on one simple truth: “The just shall live by faith.” This was the message the world of Martin Luther’s day so desperately needed to hear.
God chose the ’40s, ’50s, and ’60s of this century to say, “I am still your healer.” God’s revelation for our generation is a truth that has been abused, ridiculed and misunderstood: Our God is a God of abundance.
His abundance was not placed on earth to satisfy our fleshly desires, but rather, to establish His kingdom. Pray for the Holy Spirit to lead you into a lifestyle of abundant, kingdom living.
Jesus, I praise You for the abundant life You are giving me.
I desire to hear Your voice and seek Your face. Amen.
