Pursue love, and desire spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy.
1 Corinthians 14:1

If you ever have difficulty getting the springs of prophecy to bubble up within you, here’s a tip to help you prime the pump. I learned it from the lady I wrote about yesterday who discovered how prophecy could set her free.

A few days after our wonderful prayer meeting, she called to tell me that she had continued to prophesy and sing inspired songs in her own personal prayer times. But then Satan tried to steal that prophetic flow. (He always comes to steal the Word.) When she asked the Lord what to do about it, she felt impressed in her heart to just read the book of Psalms.

She figured since the Old Testament psalms are inspired utterances, they would open the door for her to prophesy. So she started singing them and just as she had hoped, the wellspring of prophecy began to bubble up within her again.

Today, I’m more convinced than ever that we should all follow that lady’s example. We should all cultivate the gift of prophecy so we can be edified, exhorted, and comforted every single day. When we bump up against the troubles and trials of life and our spiritual batteries lose their spark, we shouldn’t let our fervency fizzle. We should recharge our spirits with psalms and spiritual songs.We should speak by the spirit of prophecy until we’re fired up and our spirits are sizzling again.

So let’s do it! Let’s truly start coveting the wonderful gift of prophecy. Especially in the next few weeks, practice it more and more in your own, personal prayer times. Speak every day in psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs and find out just how wonderfully free you can be!
