What to do with a Prophetic Word

Did God speak to you through a prophetic word, a word of knowledge, or a word of wisdom? (1 Corinthians 12:7-8,10) When God gives you a prophetic word, that’s your invitation to take action.

If God has spoken to you, this is just the beginning. When the supernatural is released, it’s a lot like getting a packet of seeds. It holds all the promise and potential of blessing but sometimes there are things the receiver must do, in order for the seeds to take root and bear fruit.

Plant the Word and watch it grow…
1. Review – Does the word you received line up with the Bible? Does it have the character of Christ, Who is gentle and humble in heart (Matthew 11:29). If you have a hesitation or question, take some time to submit this word to a cell leader or pastor (if needed), and receive their wisdom. (Psalms 25:9/1 Peter 2:13)

2. Receive -After you’ve reviewed your word and you’ve determined it’s from the Lord, then feel free to soak it in. Do a little homework. Open your bible and collect scripture verses that reinforce what He’s speaking. Write it in a journal. Take time to let it really sink in and hit the mark.

3. Respond – (repent, make restitution, restore relationships) Do whatever you might need to do. Remember, if you’re planting a packet of seeds, sometimes the ground needs to be cleared before the seeds can be planted. (James 4:6-8)

4. Rebuke – Don’t let the devil steal your blessing. Confront the lies of the enemy with the truth of God’s word. Give no place for fear or doubt, stand in the authority Jesus has given you and rebuke the onewho comes to steal, kill, and destroy.

5. Rejoice – You received a blessing, so take some time to thank the Lord. Recall the story of the 10 lepers. All 10 were healed, but only one came back to thank Jesus. (Psalms 107:15/Luke 17:12-19)
