My Prophetic Journey Part 7: Learning the Radar

[This is the seventh in a series of articles on the ministry of the prophet and gift of prophecy.]

As described in the previous article, God continues to teach us as we move into the deep end.   He stretches us, and is always faithful to give us what we need.

Lesson 4 – Learning the Radar

At times I have gotten a vague word just walking into a situation. I learned the hard way that not every prophetic impression was to be shared publicly.

Sometimes it was a matter of being within radar range – that many who are within radar range will be hearing the same thing. On these occasions, if God’s Spirit is saying, “John 3:16,” before a meeting even starts, then “all who have an ear to hear” will pick up on that.

If someone speaks that verse out, it may be the role of another who sensed the same thing to affirm it with an “Amen!” or to affirm it with that person to encourage them.

As I have shared before, it’s good to ask God questions when we’re not sure what to do with a word. Sometimes I have had a strong impression regarding a situation, but felt that it was not for me to share, but to pray concerning the situation.

Rather than running off with half a word , sometimes to impress others, it’s better to find out what God wants us to do with it.

There have been times when I have had the opportunity to come up to someone just starting out in the prophetic who nervously shared a word, and tell them I heard the same thing from God, and that they were right on the mark. Seeing the million dollar smile on their face was priceless!
