“Though you already know all this, I want to remind you that the Lord at one time delivered his people out of Egypt, but later destroyed those who did not believe.”
– Jude 1:5

One of the most significant issues that can hinder our prophetic destiny and purpose is misdirected self-confidence.
There is a big difference between a healthy self-assuredness and being closed-minded to something that could change your life. Those four extremely dangerous words in the human language are:
“I already know that.”
When we feel like we’ve already mastered something, or that we’ve “got it covered”, or that it’s old news and not what we need, we immediately shut ourselves off from the possibility of new growth and success.
The reality is, we may think we already know something, but if we’re not applying it in our lives then it’s really just a theory. It’s not something we truly know.
Knowledge is not power. The application of knowledge is power.
So you know there is power in prayer, but do you pray without ceasing?
You know that the Bible is the word of God, how often do you read and study the word?
It’s a season of rebirth and renewal, do you believe?
Study and be eager and do your utmost to present yourself to God approved (tested by trial), a workman who has no cause to be ashamed, correctly analyzing and accurately dividing [rightly handling and skillfully teaching] the Word of Truth. 2 Timothy 2:15 (AMP)
“Once you stop learning you start dying”; says Albert Einstein.
As you read the word, be eager i.e. excitedly receive it as the whole truth and do everything possible within your power and ability to align with it.
Unbelief, taking the word for granted, and belittling prophecies all contribute to the extension of stay in the wilderness of life.
Stay woke, there is always one more thing to learn and apply as we journey in life. Open your mind to God today and stay open for new possibilities, new ideas, new opportunities, and fresh encounters with God every blessed day.
LET US PRAY:
Dear Heavenly Father, I repent of every arrogance and ‘I know it all’ mentality. With You, I am but a child.
Help me to stay humble, meek, and teachable all the days of my life. Help me to daily crave your instructions and watch out for your directions. May I never have misdirected self-confidence.
Open my eyes to see, open my heart to receive, open my ears to hear, and cause me to fly on the wings of the eagles all life long.
In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
