Prophetic people tend to be misunderstood, rejected, and often face numerous challenges when it comes to relationships. Why? I'm glad you asked. Let's face it. The nature of the prophetic promotes what many call strange, odd, or just plain weird. Prophetic people are not basket cases, they just operate on a different frequency and this frequency is what leads them to be Kingdom-driven. The frequency of a prophetic person is tuned to the voice of Holy Spirit and merely obeying what it says will seem odd to one but bring deliverance or healing to another Let me give you an example. Side Note: Holy Spirit will NEVER instruct you to do something harmful, wicked, or evil. In the next blog I'll share some ways to discern the voice of Holy Spirit.
I was in church one Sunday, worshipping. I often sat at the back of the church. The back seats were assigned to individuals in the church's Ministry of Intercession. These seats allowed us to see everyone and to pray as lead. However, when the pastor began to pray or minister we would reposition ourselves along the walls of the church and intercede until he finished. Talk about some MAJOR breakthroughs. Now back to the story. While in praise and worship Holy Spirit said, "Shout!" I shouted, "Gloooorrrry!" My obedience to Holy Spirit's voice stirred the congregation bringing deliverance and breakthrough; some shouted, others raised their hands, some stood, others began to pace the floor, some turned and looked, some cried, and the glory cloud entered. Now mind you, I'm a relatively reserved person, until Holy Spirit comes! One day, I stopped shouting. I'm not sure why, I just did. After a few Sundays of not hearing me shout one of the church leaders came and asked why I was so quiet. Hmmm... I didn't realized my voice made a difference, so began shouting again as lead by Holy Spirit. I learned that while my actions were different, odd, and even weird to some, it was effective when directed by Holy Spirit. Lives were transformed in the midst of a shout! Relationships are important. You are important! Below are some relationship tips for prophetic people.
