In August 1991, the Holy Spirit spoke through Brother Kenneth Copeland during his Southwest Believers’ Convention and said that I was moving into a new place in ministry. He said that I was going to begin to walk in “the office of a seer”—that God would begin showing me things in the spirit realm regarding things to come and that He would hold me responsible for sharing them everywhere I go.
Over the years since that time, I have been obedient to do just that and the beautiful thing is that what I’ve seen in my spirit has come to pass in my life just as God said it would. Not only that, we have received thousands of testimonies of how those things I’ve seen and shared have also come to pass for those who dared to believe it and hold fast to it just as I did.
Let me ask you as question: “Are you ready to see God’s favor at work in your life in a new way and at a higher level than you have ever seen before?” Well, that’s exactly what the Lord has shown me for 2013. It is going to be a year of unprecedented favor!
Now, here’s the best part: this prophetic word is not just for me but it’s for you as well! I challenge you to receive it, take it seriously and hold fast to it until you see it come to pass.
It’s not enough to just think, “Well, if God wants it to happen, then it will happen.” If it’s going to come to pass, then you’re going to have to do the same thing that the Apostle Paul told Timothy to do and that is, “wage a good warfare” (1 Timothy 1:18).
Every God-ordained prophetic word that has ever been spoken over me has come to pass. However, I’ve had to take that word and use it like a weapon. I don’t just wait to see if it happens. I do my part to make sure it happens.
If you will take this prophetic word and apply your faith for it, you will see God’s favor in an unprecedented way!
Let me help build your faith by describing to you what a year of unprecedented favor looks like in your life. Allow yourself to see on the inside a picture of God’s favor at work in a new way. Allow your heart to be the canvas, the Holy Spirit the artist, and this word from God the oil paint.
God’s unprecedented favor is going to give you an advantage and preferential treatment. When others are being told no that it can’t be done, you are going to experience special treatment and receive what others are denied. Doors are going to be opened for you and you will have the support and assistance you need to achieve your goals. You are going to be given priority and your name will be moved to the top of the list.
God’s favor in your life will produce uncommon results and change outcomes that are far better than you could ever think or imagine (Ephesians 3:20).
Begin to decree that you are experiencing God’s favor in an unprecedented way. Unprecedented means that God’s favor will be manifested in ways that has never happened before, that it is unequaled, beyond anything like it, extraordinary, and record setting!
Here is how I am taking this prophetic word and waging a good warfare with it:
I’m decreeing by faith that this ministry and our outreaches will experience unprecedented favor in 2013. The number of lives we touch with the Word of God will be unprecedented. The distribution of our resources will be unprecedented. Our financial increase will be unprecedented. The message we preach will reach into new, unfamiliar, unheard of territories. Our increase of faithful partners will be unprecedented. We will introduce fresh and innovative ways to reach more people. We will pioneer new teaching materials to disciple more people with greater efficiency. We are on course for a record-setting year!
That is my confession for this year and I will be declaring it everyday over this ministry. And this time next year I will be able to report all the miraculous victories the Lord has given us as we take His word to the world!
God is no respecter of persons. If He will do it for me, then He will do it for you. You can experience a year of unprecedented favor in your relationships, finances, influence, and as a witness for God. But are you going to do what it takes on your part?
To activate your faith for more of God’s favor this year and lay hold of His prophetic word to you, you are going to have to believe it and receive it by faith, speak it continually, and sow seed toward it.
When you give, just remember that beyond planting seed for a harvest of favor, you are also helping to spread the truth and love of Christ to hurting people around the world. Because of your gifts, families are being restored, souls are being saved, and people are being set free from a life of bondage and mediocrity.
God has placed some big dreams in my heart for this year and I want you to be a part of helping to reach them. Together, we can tell more people about Jesus, the price He paid, and the life...abundant life... He made possible.
Get ready for God’s unprecedented favor! Wake up each morning expecting to see God move in new ways. I am believing with you for this to be your year of unprecedented favor!
P.S. Don’t take this prophetic word lightly! Grab hold of it and activate your faith to receive it. Don’t just wait to see if it happens, be a part of making sure it happens!
