Have you ever done a prophetic act? A prophetic act differs from a spoken word of prophecy, or word of knowledge. It’s an action, something we DO under the anointing and unction of the Holy Spirit as a step of faith, as an act of obedience to release the power, presence and victory of God into a situation. Simply, a prophetic act is hearing from God and obeying His voice in what He’s called us to do, no matter how silly the act may look.
We have been meditating on Psalm 145 in the house of prayer. It’s all about proclaiming and declaring the greatness and the goodness of God. It is important that we not only keep the mighty works that God has already done before us, but to proclaim and declare those things that we do not yet see into existence.
Tonight at our Encounter God Service, we did a prophetic act of writing down what we see the Lord doing in our church and our city. We wrote them on stones, as the Hebrew word for proclaim in Psalm 145:6 means “to write on stones”. As another prophetic act, our staff will be climbing Mission Peak on Wednesday, the highest point in our city, and placing the stones at the top, as a monument to the Lord, to remember all that He has done, and to declare all that He will do!
Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised! I will proclaim His greatness!
I will exalt you, my God the King;
I will praise your name for ever and ever.
2Every day I will praise you
and extol your name for ever and ever.
3Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise;
his greatness no one can fathom.
4One generation commends your works to another;
they tell of your mighty acts.
5They speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty—
and I will meditate on your wonderful works.
6They tell of the power of your awesome works—
and I will proclaim your great deeds.
7They celebrate your abundant goodness
and joyfully sing of your righteousness. (Psalm 145:1-7)
