How You Can Strengthen Your Prophetic Gift and Find the Wisdom You Seek

What do you do when you have problems that seem to keep you stuck in a revolving door, continually oscillating you through the same problems over and over again? Believe it or not, there are answers to every problem! Neither I nor anyone else at Prophetic Ministries Today claims to have all the answers; however, we do know the One who does have all the answers to each and every problem.

There are times as a Christian when you will hear our Lord's voice or know His thoughts as He reveals Himself along the way as you journey through this life. However, it is a different kind of relationship to be able to find God for someone who is at their wit's end and who looks to you for answers. They are expecting you to seek God and His righteousness on their behalf until you find the answers which bring resolution to their problems.

"But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be given to you" (Matt. 6:33).

The responsibility is heavy. Everything within you truly rests on your God-given ability to know what He is revealing and what will work. Turning a crisis moment into a wonderful testimony is priceless. Just because you hear God's voice regarding what to do is not enough. This is where all the years of training under the direction of the Holy Spirit are needed before one can be certified as a prophetic elder. All the times the Spirit of God has set you up, placing you in between the rock and a hard spot are where you learn how to know what He means when He speaks or reveals His answers to you.

Most of the time, the answer does not come all at once; it will come in stages. Ultimately, God will lead you into a direction that will eventually open the way for you to get out from under your troubles. It is as though you are caught in a maze, blinded by all the walls, which create obstacles of confusion that keep you from finding your breakthrough. One wrong turn could leave you staring at a dead end with nowhere to go.

Have you ever been at a place in your life where there was no room to make another bad choice? This is your last chance, and you must know what is at the end of the path before taking another step. This is when you need to find someone who has already taken this journey and can tell you what is at the end of the road. In prophetic circles, we refer to this valuable insight as a "word of wisdom" (see 1 Cor. 12:8).

After years of helping others find their answers, you discover it's all about finding God's hiding places. Nobody's problem is exactly the same as another's. Therefore, each maze has a unique set of parameters and it will require a new approach—a divine map that has not yet been created. At times you feel you are playing a very serious game of hide and seek with God Almighty, and the more you play it, the more of His hiding places you can add to your list to check the next time you go seeking Him. This is how you learn to develop your ability to strengthen your prophetic gift. In turn it will give you the prophetic insight to see more accurately around the corner of tomorrow. With each answer and correct interpretation, you gently navigate that person through the process of praying, hearing and obeying until you have victory, delivering them from hopelessness into the light found at the end of the tunnel.

There is much being proclaimed by "name brand" prophets today who are warning us that more troubles are ahead. Isn't the trouble you are already in what matters the most to you? Now is the year to "Word up" and not give up. If you find His Word, you have found the answers to all your troubles. Amen, so be it!
