“…again, He said to me, ‘Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of The Lord! Thus says The Lord God to these bones: “surely I will cause breath to enter into you and you shall live…”-Ezekiel 37: 4-5 (NKJV)

As a believer, one of the things you must learn to do for yourself is to prophesy over your life from time to time. The reason is because before God brings a prophet into your life, you are first a prophet over your life. If you fail to prophesy over your life, the truth is that no one will do it for you. And the sad part is that if you do not prophesy into your life, nothing will change. You must understand that the role of prophecy in the life of a believer is so important. There is a time to pray and there is a time to prophesy. Where most people stop, is prayers but they fail to understand that beyond prayers, prophecy is important to establish what they want to see in their lives. Until and unless you begin to prophesy, there are certain things that will not change or manifest in your life, so you must make a conscious decision to learn how to prophesy over your life. Stop hesitating to prophesy.

I know that when it comes to prophecy, most people don’t want to get involved because they feel that prophecy is for prophets and God has not ordained them to be prophets. So, when you talk about prophecy, they don’t feel qualified to do that. Well, I can understand why they think like this, but beloved that thought process is not correct because there is something called the office of a prophet and the gift of prophecy. There are people that God has called to be prophets, so they sit in the office of a prophet and when they prophesy, they are telling ahead of time, what is going to happen or what God is going to do. They foretell events before they happen. But the one who has the gift of prophecy, tells forth, what they want to see. They speak it forth with the intention to see it happen and what they say will always come to pass if they believe and this happens because they have the gift of prophecy. Now, it might interest you to know that, as a believer you have the gift of prophecy because you have the Holy Ghost living in you. Remember, in the book of Joel 2:28, God said “…it shall come to pass afterward that I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy…” From this you realize that as a believer, you too can prophesy because you have the Holy Ghost. And when you prophesy in faith, it will come to pass because the Holy Spirit anoints your words with power and causes the words you have spoken to come to pass. So, begin today to prophesy over your life on a regular basis. Prophesy to that job, that business and that situation. Speak forth what you want to see and watch things turn around for good. Halleluiah!


If you fail to prophesy, no one will do it for you and nothing will change!


Thank you, Father, for encouraging me to prophesy, I understand better now, and I decree that the grace and confidence to prophesy everyday is now at work in me, and as I prophesy, I am seeing the desired result in the name of Jesus. Amen!
