     The gift of prophecy is one of the most exciting spiritual gifts. Also, it is one of the most misunderstood.

     I remember one of the first times I received a prophetic word. Emotionally, it felt like an overwhelming and celebratory experience. The only problem was that I didn't remember any of what was spoken over me.

     I was so excited, praising God and praying while the prophecy was being released, that I missed 90% of the content of the prophetic message! This was a novice blunder that would teach me an easy lesson – LISTEN when God is speaking!

     Other times I have received prophetic words and they seemed to bring more questions, uncertainty, and confusion to my life than answers. Years later, after having received hundreds of prophetic words and given thousands of prophetic words globally, God has taught me a lot about stewarding prophetic words.

     I felt compelled to share some practical keys and spiritual insights to help those individuals who have unfulfilled prophetic words over their lives or words that have left a question mark in their minds.

Understanding Prophecy

     One must first understand that prophecy, on the individual level, operates a bit differently than Biblical prophecy. Prophetic words found in the books of the Bible are concrete and absolute. They pertain to the plans and purposes of God for the Body of Christ and humanity. The fulfillment of these prophetic promises does not rest in the hands or actions of one individual or group of individuals. (Photo via Unsplash)

     Individual prophecies, or rather personal prophecies, are conditional – meaning they are subject to requirements or conditions being met before they can be fulfilled.

     I have met individuals who have received prophetic words and complained that the person who gave them the word was inaccurate or that God did not keep His promises. Oftentimes these individuals received these prophetic words and took no action to partner with the prophetic word to see it come to pass in their lives. Figuratively, they lay back on their hammocks with their arms crossed and wait for the prophecies to come to pass with no application of faith or obedience on their part. They dismiss the conditionality of personal prophecy.

Seek God for Clarity

     Have you ever received a prophetic word and didn't understand exactly what God was trying to say to you? I'm sure many of us have had a similar experience. Don't throw away these prophetic words. Put them in your proverbial "prayer box" and seek God for clarity. Prayer will help to fill in the blanks of what God is really trying to communicate.

     God spoke to the prophet Samuel (Samuel 16:1), "...I have provided Me a king..." Samuel heard the prophecy correctly, but it was interpreted through his own soulish filter. In his mind, a king should have a certain stately and noble appearance, impressive to the eyes of the beholders.

     Samuel received clarity by keeping his heart open to God. 1 Samuel 16:6-7, "And it came to pass, when they were come, that he looked on Eliab, and said, 'Surely the Lord's anointed is before Him.' But the Lord said unto Samuel, 'Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.'"

     Samuel made the right choice by staying internally prayerful and allowing his heart to be tuned to the voice of God. The spiritual clarity he received resulted in David being anointed and later appointed as king of Israel. When we receive personal prophecy or prophetic instructions, it is important to ask for further clarity about what we have already received from God. Prophecy may give direction but we must ask God for details and specifics. (Photo via Wikimedia Commons)

Seek God for Wisdom

     The proper stewardship of a personal prophecy not only involves seeking God for clarity, but also...(continue reading)
