“A Green Shoot will sprout from Jesse’s Stump, from his roots a budding Branch. “(Isaiah 11 vs 1). That is the Focal Scripture of Streams Of Joy Devotional Today.
It is important to note that the birth of a shoot(Jesus) from Jesse’s Stump(lineage) was prophesied about and Isaiah was one of the prophets that spoke about it (the birth of Jesus). The shoot(Jesus) did not come forth accidentally or naturally. It didn’t come out on its own. It came as a fulfillment of prophecy. It came after Isaiah prophesied. Put differently, the prophecies laid the foundation and ultimately catalysed the birth of a bud from Jesse’s stump.
If we go with the most basic definition of Prophecy; it simply means SPEAKING GOD’S MIND. So Isaiah spoke God’s mind and a bud came forth. A Prophetic atmosphere heralded the bud’s emergence.
Beloved, one remarkable truth about speaking the mind of God is that it prepares the ground for the birth of something new in your life and destiny. The mind of God is made bare in the Scriptures. When you stay in an atmosphere where God’s Word is declared, new things will begin to happen in your life. When you allow your lips to become God’s mouthpiece in speaking his mind, you will be a witness of new things that will blow your mind.
Today, don’t just stop at hearing the words of God. Take it to the next level. SPEAK IT! DECLARE IT! SHOUT IT!
Speak God’s Word into your Health, Finances, Academics, Business, Career etc. Do your destiny a favour by always declaring the Word of God. A closed mouth is a closed Destiny. Don’t speak your fears, your challenges, the newspapers reports, the doctor’s report etc rather SPEAK GOD’S MIND and you will see new things spring up!
Proverbs 18 vs 21 counsels; “Death and Life are in the power of the tongue, and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof”. If you speak ‘life’ you shall have life. If you speak death….
Pray with me, “Lord,I choose to speak your word”
Have a Blessed Sunday!
You are the Best!
