The Power of Personal Prophecy

1 Timothy 1:18; Mark 10:15; Matthew 11:12; Joshua 24:15; 2 Corinthians 10:4-5; Psalm 37:25.

Personal prophecy is an important weapon. Timothy was charged to use the prophecies in his life to wage spiritual warfare. When the enemy attacks us or our families, we fight and win the battle by decreeing God’s prophetic Word. If you’re struggling in the battle, don’t neglect the powerful weapon of personal prophecy.

A prophecy is not about where we are right now. It’s about where we’re going. It’s about the future. God has a destiny for every one of us. He has a destiny for our children and our grandchildren. Our future is bright! We step from where we are to where God wants to take us by thinking and proclaiming the prophetic Word of God.
