DAY 20: Mon 9 March 2015

WEEK 4: Delight In Declaring What Your Father Is Saying
DESTINY QUESTION: Lord, What is my Life Message?
Knowing your testimony will enable you to carry the gospel of Jesus in how you live and in what you say. Your key life scriptures, and prophetic words spoken by others, may help you discern God’s answers to your DESTINY Questions. Seek God’s revelation of your DESTINY beyond these 40 days until you have one sentence answers to all the questions.
Journal what you hear and how this helps define your DESTINY journey.

QUICK DEVOTIONAL: Read the words in blue.

DELIGHT in who Jesus is: John 8:12-20 The Passion Translation. “I am light to the world.” (John 8:12)

DELIGHT in how Jesus testified to the truth together with His Father. 
Jesus said, “I absolutely know who I am, where I’ve come from and where I’m going…I discern truth. And I am not alone in My judgements, for My Father and I have the same understanding in all things, and He has sent Me to you. What I say about who I am is true, for I am not alone in my testimony – My Father is the other witness, and we testify together of the truth. If you knew Me, you would recognise My Father too.” (John 8:14, 16,18,20) When we know God’s promises, His word to us and through us, we are to thank and praise Him for it; and stand on His word and declare it to the world! Your testimony contains God’s power and authority to set others free in the same area where you have won freedom. You’ll find your purpose on earth in your personal testimony. (Cook 2012)

ASK the Holy Spirit your secret name (Revelation 2:17) – the unique identity that the Father sees you with for all eternity – a deep, inner heart-revelation in the core of your being about who the Father sees you to be – your unique identity by His design.” (Hill 2014)

ASK the Holy Spirit for a clear revelation of your Life Message. Spend time listening for His answer during these 40 Days. Prophetic words spoken to you carry clues. Your Life Message will be a life testimony to who God is from your own authentic journey of healing, encounters and insights.

DELIGHT in testifying to the truth that Jesus is the light of the world! It is the sad mistaken of many Christians to suppose that we can or should carry out our Christian duty only within the confines of our local church or denomination. God’s love cannot be contained – it must be released! “Jesus speaks to the world about everything that really matters in life. It is our responsibility to follow Him and be with Him in this difficult, delicate and crucial work.” (Willard 2014 p73)

PRACTISE: Spend time recognising authentic pivotal points in your journey with Jesus. Write these out and practise saying each within 60 seconds – so at relevant times you can tell others what Jesus has done for you.

DECLARE: Jesus, the Word, is within me to know what to say to people and when and how to say it! I have a Life Message that testifies to who the Father is and upon which God has placed grace so the gospel can be heard by the kinds of people who are naturally drawn to me!

TELL the people around you – your story about who Jesus is and who you are in Him!

DESTINY BLESSING: Jesus has made us priests in His kingdom (1 Peter 2:5,9; Revelation 1:5-6). We are equipped to overflow God’s blessing to others (Deuteronomy 10:8; Numbers 6:22-27).

PRAYER:

  • DELIGHT in Jesus and declare your life message.
    Lord, I love You! You are the light of my world! Remind me of the inheritance scriptures and prophetic words given to me so I can align myself with who You say I am. Fill me with the message my life is to speak. Your Word in me will be life to those to whom Holy Spirit leads me. Encounter them, Jesus I pray in humble submission.
  • Invite Jesus into your friends’ DESTINY.
    Wait on the Lord for His leading as to who God is preparing to hear your life message. Pray for their heart to be open to the light God is bringing and expect opportunities to open up!
  • Invite Jesus to transform the DESTINY of your region.
    Pray for God’s continuing outpouring of His Holy Spirit on Australia to enable us to walk out our prophetic DESTINY as a South Land of the Holy Spirit, a light to the world and a missionary sending nation.

    From Gwyn Thornton: Graham (my husband) and I have been greatly encouraged by the daily devotions and prayers sent to us so far, as they affirm what we have been about for the last 4 years. You know of the Message that I received from Jesus in September 2011 about the importance of joining His Secret Army of Love and we now have a small nucleus of people in our church and around the world who have been touched by its importance and are putting these principles in place in their prayer life for the world around us and beyond.

    We were greatly encouraged to read that it is more important to reflect Jesus in our lives than to talk about Him or do good deeds because we think we should. This has been a great lesson for us over the last 6 years. It is pointless preaching the Gospel Message and witnessing about what Jesus has done for us if ‘the ground’ i.e. the hearts and minds and souls of the people) have not been adequately prepared. So now after putting the whole armour of God on ourselves we say the Lords Prayer over each country of the world and speak the Name of Jesus into the hearts and minds and souls of the President, King, Queen, Sheik, Prince etc, all the members of the governments, the people who live in that nation and all the perpetrators of evil in that nation. We then, in the Name of Jesus, take captive every thought of theirs and make them obedient to the Word of God and the Mind of Christ so that He can and will transform them by the renewing of their minds, establish His Homeostasis (balance) in their lives so that they can be blessed with great success as they turn their hands to all that is wholesome and good and be prospered in every good way.

    We also have lists of all the ……. and of course we have the list of Christian leaders and politicians in this nation which you have given to us in the booklet. We also apply this principal in praying for all the brothels in Melbourne, graffiti gangs, bikie gangs and any other centres of evil works. We went to the Casino in Melbourne last week and dropped Jesus bombs all over the place as there were many people there on the pokies and gaming tables that desperately need the Love of Jesus in their lives. As you can see we are kept very, very busy and for most of the time we do all of this in secret and silence and only speak of Jesus when The Lord gives us specific directions to do so. Another exciting thing is that we have met a few other people who have had a similar message but have been directed to deliver it in a different way e.g. walking around the streets of Melbourne silently singing His praises. It’s wonderful.

    So thank you Sue and we look forward to the rest of the daily prayers and reflections for the rest of Lenten Period.

    Our Love and Blessings

    Gwyn and Graham Thornton

    From Marion: I did what the daily reading suggested o Day 20 about asking the Holy Spirit for my special name that only God knew. How incredible!!! He told me He saw me as ‘Constance’ and when I looked up all the meanings of the word in the thesaurus, was just blown away and wept. What a loving, affirming and faithful God we serve. Have just LOVED the 40 days and found the whole thing so uplifting.
    Thank you.

    My life message is this:”There is an encounter with the living God available to you. Jesus has come so you may have life and live abundantly.” I say this to you today. I say this to people I have meaningful conversations with on planes, in cafes, everywhere. It’s applicable to those who don’t yet consciously know God and to people who have been in the church but are not fully alive in Christ. Seek intimate ongoing encounters with your God and live abundantly in intimacy with Him. What’s your life message? See More: http://partnersinprayer.org.au/let-father-define-you/
