Someone on Facebook said, “I don’t think God cares about who wins the Super Bowl.” I knew that wasn’t exactly true. God does a lot of things we don’t understand. He cares for everything that concerns his creation, which is us. Man is made in the image of God. #GodsSpecialEffects #SpiritualGifts #SuperBowl2018
How does God speak to you? For me, He speaks to my heart through the Bible, and directly to my spirit. It’s that “still, small voice” inside me. It can be like a running dialogue, or just a word or two with the instruction of “write this down.” So, I grab my journal, pick up a pen, and write. #GodsSpecialEffects #SpiritualGifts #SuperBowl2018
I’m setting the stage to explain why I posted what I posted on Facebook during the Super Bowl. Last time, I discussed spiritual gifts and the word of knowledge. This time, I’ll discuss prophecy. It isn’t Bible or End Times prophecy. It’s God speaking. Any New Testament Christian can prophesy. (I Corinthians 14:31) Click to Tweet #GodsSpecialEffects #SpiritualGifts #SuperBowl2018
A prophecy given usually connotes a future event. When I began to stir up my gifts (as we are encouraged to do, see II Timothy 1:6), I used to “practice” hearing from God by watching a sports event…a baseball game, a football game, etc. Because I could see results of my practice quickly. I would ask the Lord about a batter. Will he get a hit, or make an out? Will this football team’s drive result in a touchdown, or will they have to punt? I’d see results quite quickly.
