OPEN HEAVENS DEVOTIONAL FOR TODAY
There are some differences between a prophecy and a decree. When a prophecy comes, that is a promise and when God makes a promise, He will definitely fulfil it at the appropriate time and with the proper conditions. However, when He makes a decree, the fulfilment is immediate and without any conditions. The prayer of every Christian should be that God should turn every prophecy into a decree in their favour.
Abraham had received the prophecy that he would be a father of nations, but somehow the fulfilment was taking time to manifest. The day Abraham invited God to eat, every prophecy concerning childbirth became a decree. That day, He brought what was yet to come to ‘now’. In John 2:1-11, at the wedding in Cana of Galilee, Jesus’ mother told Him the hosts no longer had any wine. He told His mother, “My time is not yet come”, but not long after that, ‘not yet became ‘now’. In (2 Kings 4:8-17), when Elisha decreed to the Shunammite woman that she would have a son, even though she didn’t believe him, it came to pass.
A decree sets aside your doubts and unbelief. It goes ahead to do what was spoken while a prophecy, on the other hand, requires you to believe and even pray sometimes for it to come to pass.
There is no prophecy God has declared concerning you that He cannot bring to pass because He is the Almighty. Matthew 3:9 says He is so mighty that He can even bring children out of stones. He is so mighty that He can literally reverse the irreversible because, in Romans 4:16-19, the Bible says that the womb of Sarah was already dead. If you want to see that prophecy manifest immediately, it needs to become a decree. How do you get God to turn His prophecies concerning you into decrees? Simple; offer unto Him what He delights in. Psalm 50:13-14 says “Will I eat the flesh of bulls, or drink the blood of goats? Offer unto God thanksgiving; and pay thy vows unto the most High”.
Sing praises to God, thank Him from the bottom of your heart, do His will. If you do these so much and so well that it touches His heart, He will turn prophecies to decrees in your life.
Father, please turn every prophecy I have received to a decree in my favour in Jesus’ name
