I’ve always had a hankering to be a prophet. Being able to know the future, have the power to perform miracles… The prophets were the original super-heroes.
Skip ahead a few hundred years and prophecy was redefined: “the one who prophesies speaks to people for their strengthening, encouraging and comfort.”
Prophecy is still a gift from God when it comes to knowing the exact words to say that will strengthen, encourage and comfort someone in need.
Each time we choose to speak strength, encouragement and comfort, could it be that we are taking God’s gift and using it as intended?
