Pursue love, and desire spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy. 1 Corinthians 14:1 (NKJV)
And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your young men shall see visions, Your old men shall dream dreams. Acts 2:17 (NKJV)
Aligning the words we speak concerning our children with God’s Word is the core of prophetic parenting. We speak out of the abundance of our hearts. When we are filled with the Holy Spirit and God’s sure Word of prophecy, we operate in the prophetic, and speaking prophetically over our children becomes natural.
Ponder these scriptures highlighting the Bible as a prophetic book:
So we have the prophetic word made more certain. You do well to pay [close] attention to it as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and light breaks through the gloom and the morning star arises in your hearts. 2 Peter 1:19 (AMP)
I testify and warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book [its predictions, consolations, and admonitions]: if anyone adds [anything] to them, God will add to him the plagues (afflictions, calamities) which are written in this book. Revelation 22:18 (AMP)
If we want to practice prophetic parenting, we must become students of the Bible learning with the help of the Holy Spirit.
Our beliefs about the Holy Spirit and intimacy with Him influence how we teach our children about the Holy Spirit and operate in the prophetic.
What do you know about the Holy Spirit? How are you growing in your relationship with the Holy Spirit?
It’s time to study the book of Acts and ask the Holy Spirit to help you know Him.
