Last month a friend of the ministry wrote in sharing their frustration with the struggle and stagnation in their life. Nothing was working, prayers weren’t being answered and there was no light at the end of the tunnel of despair. I want to share a brief portion of their difficulty as they expressed it and my response. I know that many are facing this today in their lives and I want to encourage you that change is available and possible if you are willing to be brutally honest and committed to change.
I’ve been reading the Daily Prophetic Word & many times it does encourage me but I’ve yet to see a single breakthrough. People around me including my own parents feel that I’m living in my own world. However, many who’ve prayed for me in the past all confirmed to me that I’ve got a special destiny. Where do I go from here?
Response from Prophet Russ
Hello [name withheld] … I want to respond to your e-mail and see if I can help you. This is all territory I am VERY familiar with in my own life. The prophetic word whether corporate to a group or personal to an individual is only one small part of the equation of choices that produces breakthrough in your life.
Prophetic words either GIVE ASSIGNMENTS or they ENCOURAGE in the midst of CURRENT ASSIGNMENTS. There is no such thing as waiting and watching. Luke 17:20-21 says that the kingdom of God does not come with observation. You must DO something. Your vision may be so large that you feel there is nothing that you can do but in fact you can. DO WHAT YOU CAN WITH WHAT YOU HAVE AND STICK WITH IT. This requires making illogical and at times foolish decisions. You can’t listen to your critics. You must 1.) Do what you see the Father do [John 5:19]; 2.) Have no opinion about the consequences of doing what you see the Father do [Matt. 7:1]; 3.); and finally you must relinquish the outcome [John 12:24].
God has done all He can and will do to direct and empower you – you must now act. He can deal with anything but your refusal to make a decision. Act now. Tomorrow is a figment. Yesterday is a fiction. Can you take now for an answer? Make sacrificial acts of obedience leaning into your vision. Find those with a greater vision than you and connect yourself with them at all costs.
Waiting for your ship to come in (the money, the opportunity, the recognition) is a fantasy and a deception. You must do now what is in front of you even if it makes you look like a fool. You must choose to see yourself in the light of what God says about you not what people think or circumstances may indicate. God called Abraham the father of nations when he was a barren and old man with one foot in the grave.
Things are the way they are because of what you are doing. If you want something different you must do something different. You do what you do because of how you think. As a man thinketh in his heart so is he. You must adopt the mentality of “thy kindgom come”. The kingdom is righteousness (entitlement), peace (prosperity) and joy (fulfillment in life). Who are you going to believe and what are you prepared to do? Are you willing to go out – all the way out on the limb of risk (faith) to see your highest heart’s desire fulfilled? No more playing it safe or making excuses. Act now. Your life belongs to HIM. What are you protecting? Reject self-pity. Move forward and know that your life if nothing else will be a testament to the promise of God to those that are desperate and hoping in Him.
The end result will be highest heart’s desire – greatest dream fulfilled. If God cannot be trusted then let’s all throw our bibles in the trash bin and do something else! He is a prayer answering God who will never leave us or forsake us. Quit saying “If I just knew the will of God for my life – – ” God is not interested in aligning you with “THE PLAN”. He sent Jesus to die FOR YOU not to die for “THE PLAN”. That is a deception arising from legalistic religion. God is in LOVE with you which is why He sent His son. He isn’t in love with a plan. That is the objection of the natural mind to the path of the Spirit of God for your life. Does God have a plan? Sure but it doesn’t matter that you do or do not know it. All that matters is that every day you get up and find out at all costs what “seek the kingdom looks like”.
If you find out each day what seek the kingdom looks like then it is NOT POSSIBLE that ALL THINGS will not BE ADDED TO YOU and you will find yourself in the very center of God’s blessing and favor and fullness.
God bless you – now go do what you see the Father do!
