“So they rose early in the morning and went out into the Wilderness of Tekoa; and as they went out, Jehoshaphat stood and said, “Hear me, O Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem: Believe in the Lord your God, and you shall be established; believe His prophets, and you shall prosper.”
II Chronicles 20:20 NKJV

Prophecies are often a point of contention in the body of Christ. Some are of the school of thought that it is not as important now that we have the in dwelling person of the Holy Ghost. Others idolize it to a point of missing God in it, while others may prioritize it above pattern and principles. But there are those who know how to wage war with the prophecies upon them because they are established in their belief (1 Timothy 1:18).

In our theme scripture, King Jehoshaphat gives us a pattern, the order is to believe in God first then you can be able to listen to his prophets and prosper. What you believe about God is the primary foundation to correctly interpret prophecy.

Do you believe that He is good? That His plans for you are always good? That He will never leave nor forsake you? That He watches His word to fulfill it? Then the prophecies you receive will fall on solid ground, and will not be lord over your life.

In1 Thessalonians 5:20, Paul encourages us to test prophecies and hold fast to what is good. How then would you know what is good if you don’t look to who is good (Mark 10:18)? Child of God, prophecies were never designed to override God’s patterns or principles.

The privilege of having the Holy Spirit puts us to an advantage of knowing the heart of God towards us through our intimacy with him, and every word sent is to confirm what we have drawn from communing with Him. Never err by expecting the latter to come before the former. Hallelujah!

Prayer: Father I thank you for this word. By your spirit, I am guided through the destiny which awaited me even before I was formed. I wage a good warfare with every prophecy that comes after clinging to faith and having a clear conscience. In all things, your word rules in my heart and stands as the scale on which all is weighed. It is by this confidence that I know I cannot fail, for your word never returns to you void, in Jesus mighty name.
