Prophetic Word: God Wants to Bless You—But Not Just to Make You Happy

In a time of prayer, I heard the word, "illustration." "Illustration" means to be an example in order to clarify or to prove something. God is about to make His sons and daughters an illustration of His favor, blessing and increase. Yes, when God blesses you. it is because He loves you. but it is also so He can make you an illustration. God will use you as an example of how one person who is consecrated and set apart to God can have the extreme favor and blessings upon their life.

God is looking for somebody who can be an illustration He can use to clarify His love to others. He wants to prove something through our lives so the people watching can gain understanding and strength to make it through whatever they're going through. The Lord is going to use what you have been through in previous seasons as an illustration of His glory. In this hour, God is releasing public signs of His anointing and approval of those who have been seeking Him and His kingdom in private.

People and ministries who have made God's presence and power their priority will see a shift in exposure, blessing and increase. Many ministries that have rejected the Holy Spirit and power of God will begin to lose their influence as God elevates those that have been faithful to going after Him.

Get ready for the breakthrough, increase and blessings God is about to unleash on you. And remember, when God blesses you, it is not just for you; it is for His kingdom to be illustrated and advanced through your life.
