{ Day 338 }

He who prophesies speaks edification and exhortation and comfort to men. —1 Corinthians 14:3, NKJV

Practically everyone who is filled with God's Spirit is able to prophesy on an inspirational level (what I have referred to as Level 1 prophecy), especially in a worship service where the Holy Spirit's presence is more easily recognized. The result of what we call inspirational prophecy was described by Paul in our verse for today. The purpose of this type of prophecy is to inspire and refresh our hearts without giving any correction or new direction. This kind of prophecy is usually a reminder from the heart of God about His care and purposes for us, and it often emphasizes some truth we already know from the Bible. Inspirational prophecy can be a very profound revelation, or it can be (as it usually is) something very simple, such as, "I feel the Lord is saying that He really loves us." That message, if it is given at a divinely prescribed time, can be powerful and effective.


Holy Spirit, fill my spirit with the inspiration of Your marvelous love and care for Your children. Help me to be willing to inspire others with the overflow of revelation that You give to me.

If inspirational prophecy occurs too frequently,
it will become too common, and people will no
longer pay attention to what is being said.
