I received a Google notification on my phone that it would rain in our city at a particular day and time. I had earlier followed such forecast and it had been accurate. But this time around, my wife insisted it would not rain at that time (possibly because she did not want the rain). True to my wife’s belief, it did not rain. I learnt a lesson; science predicts what might be, God reveals what has been!

Friend, God’s prophecy for your future is not a forecast. Unlike the weather forecast, it is not foretelling (or prediction), it is forth telling. It has been concluded before it was spoken forth. This is why we can stake our lives for it. God can be trusted. Like Job said, no purpose of His can be thwarted (Job 42:2).

Sometimes, I hear people say that they need someone to ‘prophesy’ their future for them. Some would even insist on not going to a Church where the pastor does not ‘prophesy’. My answer to them is simple; there is already the prophecy of the scriptures concerning your life, and this is the highest prophecy (2 Peter 1:19-21).

Don’t join the bandwagon of ignorant and lazy people who would not take time to search out what God has said or written concerning them but prefer to go the easy way out consulting with mediums in the name of prophets and prayer houses. Listen, if your future of greatness is important to you, you would pay the needed price to search it out in God.

Your kingly manifestation begins the moment you are able to search out what God has said concerning you (Proverbs 25:2). Jesus did not enter into the glory of His destiny until He searched out what has been written concerning Him (Luke 4:16-21). Ignorance (and wrong leadership) is what is making princes to walk barefooted while servants are on horses (Ecclesiastes 10:5-7). This error must be corrected.

Live this season with an assurance that, no matter the circumstances around you, God’s word over your life is settled (Psalms 119:89). He has declared you blessed (Ephesians 1:3). He has declared you healed (1 Peter 2:24). He has declared you favoured (Psalms 5:12). He has declared that you are more than conquerors (Romans 8:37). Search out these truths and immerse yourself in them (1 Timothy 4:15). You will succeed!
