How God's Word Reveals Our Hearts Secrets
" ...As they listen, their secret thoughts will be exposed, and they will fall to their knees and worship God, declaring, “God is truly here among you” (1 Corinthians 14:25).
Vision by Brother Glenn (21/05/2022)
I had a vision on the above date just after my morning prayers. I saw a man of God preaching the word. I could perceive the man was blind and physically disabled but the message that came from him came with convicting power. I could sense that the very things he preached about were meant for me at that moment, the message was prophetic in nature. I then heard the man of God explaining to me saying, "Did you know that every time you read the Bible or listen to a sermon, the message is intended for you because God knew beforehand that you would be there to hear the message. Therefore, don't ever doubt the accuracy of the message and think it's intended for others, it speaks to you and reveals the secrets of your heart".
Receive And Accept Correction
Now brethren, often when I read the Word of God and come across some scriptural passage that highlights some activity in my life that is displeasing to God or some fruit of the Spirit which I lack, the conviction through the Holy Spirit brings me to the point of acknowledging my shortcomings in a short prayer while I'm reading. I can therefore confidently share with you the Lord is always pleased when we show our humility to Him by acknowledging our shortcomings.
A few weeks ago, the Lord gave a prophetic word to one of my daughters and she did not take it well. She totally rejected that message of the Lord, when we all knew she needed that word since her very actions witnessed her wrongful conduct. After rebuking her for despising the Word of the Lord, and gently reminding her that the Lord's rebuke has good intent it is to save us and not to condemn us, I pointed out to her that "Stern discipline awaits him who leaves the path, he who hates correction will die" (Proverbs 15:10 NIV).
How often do we avoid or reject a Word intended for our good? Instead of acknowledging our guilt and accepting the conviction which could lead to our deliverance, we simply continue in our sins (Psalm 32:5). In conclusion, a prophetic message that speaks into the future is great and well accepted, how much more should we regard a personal prophetic message that speaks to into our lives to correct our ways? Thus, next time you hear a word, don't doubt it, it is intended for you right at that moment, the Lord knew you would be there to receive it.
