A Prophetic Ministry For Every Believer Part 1 – TWC Daily Devotional – Friday 14 August 2015

There are many spiritual gifts mentioned in the Bible especially in 1Cor.12 and Rom.12 – the gift of wisdom, faith, hospitality, leadership, speaking in other tongues and healing amongst others. In 1Cor.14:1, Pau said, “Follow the way of love and eagerly desire spiritual gifts, especially the gift of prophecy.” As believers, we are called first and foremost to pursue and desire God for He is our all in all. In pursuing God and all that He is, we are to pursue and desire spiritual gifts too! Amongst them, we are to especially desire the gift of prophecy. And the reason is in v.4 – “He who speaks in a tongue edifies himself, but he who prophesies edifies the church.” God’s desire is for us to operate in a gift that builds up the church so that believers, having been built up, will go out and bless the whole world! Tomorrow, we will look at how to operate the gift of prophecy so that lives around us are touched by the amazing love of God through our humble ministry. As you walk with God today, begin to desire and pursue the gift of prophecy. Ask God for it, hunger for it and determine to do everything you can to learn more about it and how to operate in it. Have a great day!

Today’s Bible Text: “1 Follow the way of love and eagerly desire spiritual gifts, especially the gift of prophecy. 2 For anyone who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God. Indeed, no-one understands him; he utters mysteries with his spirit. 3 But everyone who prophesies speaks to men for their strengthening, encouragement and comfort. 4 He who speaks in a tongue edifies himself, but he who prophesies edifies the church.” (1Cor.14:1-4)

Day 14

by Rev Joel Yong

Leviticus 7:30 ESV
His own hands shall bring the Lord’s food offerings. He shall bring the fat with the breast, that the breast may be waved as a wave offering before the Lord.

Offerings were to be brought forth not by a servant for their master, but by the person himself. No proxies.

This was to show they did so voluntarily and it was their desire to reconcile having trespassed against God and men.

We still bring offerings this day – offerings of money, time and service. And still there can be no proxies and it must be done in a manner that reflects our own response to serve God, to reconcile with Him, and to give thanks.

We might get jaded, so as time goes on, it becomes purely routine, and devoid of intent. Let’s refresh our mindsets and lift up voluntary, sincere offerings to Him anew this day.
