What do you do when you have problems that seem to keep you stuck in a revolving door – continually oscillating you through the same problems over and over again? Believe it or not, there are answers to every problem! Neither I, nor anyone else at Prophetic Ministries Today (PMT), claims to have all the answers; however, we do know the One that does have all the answers to each and every problem.
There are times as a Christian when you will hear our Lord's voice or know His thoughts as He reveals Himself along the way as you journey through this life. However, it is a different kind of relationship to be able to find God for someone else who is at their wits' end and who looks to you for answers. They are expecting you to seek God and His righteousness on their behalf until you find the answers which bring resolve to their problems.
But seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Matthew 6:33
The responsibility is heavy. Everything within you truly rests on your God-given ability to know what He is revealing and what will work. Turning a crisis moment into a wonderful testimony is priceless.
Whether hearing for yourself or someone else, just because you hear God's voice regarding what to do is not enough; this is where all the years of training under the direction of the Holy Spirit are needed.
Through all the times the Spirit of God has set you up, placing you in between the rock and a hard spot, this is where you learn how to know what He means when He speaks or reveals His answers to you. Most of the time the answer does not come all at once; it will come in stages.
Ultimately, He will lead you into a direction that will eventually open the way for you to get out from under your troubles. It may feel like you are caught in a maze, blinded by all the walls and obstacles of confusion that keep you from finding your breakthrough; it may even feel like one wrong turn could leave you staring at a dead end with nowhere to go.

Have you ever been at a place in your life where there was no room to make another bad choice? This is your last chance, and you must know what is at the end of the path before taking another step. This is when you need to find someone who has already taken this journey and can tell you what is at the end of the road. In prophetic circles we refer to this valuable insight as a "word of wisdom" (ref. 1 Corinthians 12:8).
After years of helping others find their answers, you discover it's all about finding God's "hiding places." No one's problem is exactly the same as another's. Therefore, each "maze" has a unique set of parameters and it will require a new approach – a divine map that has not yet been created.
At times you can feel you are playing a very serious game of hide-and-seek with God Almighty, and the more you play it, the more of His hiding places you can add to your list to check the next time you go seeking Him. This is how you learn to develop your ability to strengthen your prophetic gift which gives you the prophetic insight to see more accurately around the corner of tomorrow. With each answer and correct interpretation, you gently navigate that person through the process of praying, hearing, and obeying until you have victory, delivering them from hopelessness into the light found at the end of the tunnel.(Photo via SXC)
Now is the year to "WORD-UP" and not give up. If you find His Word, you have found the answers to all your troubles. Amen, so be it!
The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach the Gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed; to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord. Luke 4:18-19
God Has A Word For YOU!
"I, saith the Lord your God, desire to draw you closer to Me than you ever have been before. There are many things My Spirit will teach you, preparing you for a journey that will become your life's testimony. You struggle laboring to be able to leave an inheritance to your children's children. However, what you attempt to store up for their inheritance has created a huge error in your quest.

"I tell you now of what you should be laying up as treasure for your sons and daughters, and it will not require your blood, sweat, and tears. For My burden is light, and My yoke is easy.
"You see, the wisdom of Solomon, the wealthiest man of all, knew what to ask for in order to have it ALL. He did not ask for riches of gold and silver, which act as magnets drawing the wretched minds of evildoers to your childrens' doorsteps.
"If you will change your vision of what you will leave your children to this one equation, you will later discover that storing up My knowledge and wisdom, as Solomon did, will become their ultimate success. They will forever overcome all that this world throws at them – easily staying one step ahead of trouble."
So be it, amen!
