A Clear Trumpet

Daily Devotions

Scripture likens God’s voice to a trumpet, a clear and distinguishable sound. The message He intends is a clear trumpet. Our desire for the prophetic ministry of Shirley Weaver Ministries is to clearly speak the Lord’s message to our culture and world.

Steward The Gift

The Lord remembers your gift and your calling, deposits of His Spirit made into your soul. He does not change His mind about those but watches over them faithfully.

Guard the vision He gave you. It is a treasure. A much-needed, indispensable part! Facilitating the vision of others is noble, but don’t forget the Lord’s word to you. It takes less effort and is less costly to follow someone else’s vision, though maybe at the expense of your own. Do your best to avoid that.

Be sure to carry out the Lord’s word…to you. Don’t put it off. Always remember, it is required that a steward be faithful to anything received from the Lord. Avoid religion’s pull to define you. Focus again. Remain clear. Stay with the words He spoke to you.

Amen.

Offended

“So they were offended at Him.”  (Mark 6:3)

We push past the Lord’s counsel as though we have sufficient brain and will power to handle things on our own. And when others offer counsel or warning about the direction we’ve chosen, we take offense. Ultimately, we find ourselves in turmoil the Lord never intended.

Our insensitivity becomes especially obvious when the fruit of choosing our own way ripens, when in the full-blown crisis, we challenge God—why He let this thing happen, why He is not answering our prayers, why He is deaf to our pleas for deliverance, and why He permitted this outcome. We become offended at Him… at the Lord!

If being offended is your regular habit or attitude, decide today to change that. Open your heart to hear both the Lord and others he sends, and rather than snubbing their wisdom and choosing to be offended, thinking you are above such, consciously practice listening for the Lord and His people.

Specifically ask God to speak into your situation and send others to help as well. Don’t go your own way alone. The Lord’s counsel is a gazillion times greater than your intellectual dominance. In the crisis, you need more than a persona and a heavy hand; you need the Lord’s mighty presence.

Amen.

Whose Counsel?

The Lord ordained specific purposes for each life, and to accomplish those, we were never meant to go it alone. We cannot grow spiritually without wise counsel from people He places in our lives. Not just one or two friends and a few casual acquaintances, but a circle around us of those who have spiritual integrity to speak up when something isn’t right.

Many isolated believers cause heartache for themselves, family, and others because they alone rule in their own affairs, without interference, basically because they can. They either do not have or refuse to have a circle of believers who can watch for them.

Isolated this way, charm is deceptive, agendas are shared by only one of two, and if initially it seems destructive actions continue unchecked, that does not mean God approves. Unfortunately, it takes time, often years, to realize damage has been done. The person on top today likely will not be then.

We need an entourage of those highly developed in God’s Word and with spiritual discernment to surround us—wise counselors, Godly influences. For you and for me, life is no place to go it alone.

Amen.

Women Who Lead

Today the Church has begun to benefit from the entirety of God’s provision rather than only half. As fifty percent of God’s leadership team, women are no longer suspect because of their God-given leadership ability in areas of His calling. In the same way that patriarchal Israel recognized Deborah’s governance, anointing, and authority to rule, the Church is now recognizing as error earlier religious perceptions of women leaders.

While other religions continue to persecute women and girls—suppressing them through psychological and cultural oppression, through blatant and murderous abuse—the Bible declares God’s view: in the Spirit there is neither male nor female. Therefore, Christians see spiritual gifts in both men and women as gifts created by God for the benefit of all.

Male exclusiveness never was God’s idea, nor is it the Bible model; rather, the Lord created us spiritual beings, male and female, with specific earth assignments, an inspiration and example to mentor leadership callings in our sons and daughters. 

Centuries of prayer—plus the inevitable freedom result of God’s unquenchable plan—have opened areas of church leadership to women. That openness allows women leaders to make dramatic contributions—energetic ideas to grow the church, spiritual maturity for tough challenges, and courageous and graceful wisdom to mentor the next generation. Thank God.

Amen.

Authority To Change It

Prayers of righteous men and women are powerful. Add to their righteous position a steady confidence in the believer’s authority to move obstacles and influence situations, and everything can turn suddenly.

When you pray, remember you have authority to change those things that must change. In every place of your God-given authority, “say to the mountain” that stands in the way—move! Speak with the authority given to you by the Lord.

Do it with confidence in the plan He shows you–—focus your faith prayer there. Your words are powerfully anointed to destroy yokes placed by the enemy, Satan.

As one who knows truth, you have authority, expressed with your words, to undo wrong words, override careless and faithless activity, and hold the line for truth in every place He has positioned you.

Take a stand. Don’t yield. You’ve got this!

Amen.

Answered Prayer

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.”  (Jeremiah 29:11-13)

Specifically, note the thing you ask of the Lord and look carefully when the answer begins to come. Note specifics of your prayer and match those to specifics of His answer. When you do, you’ll see the extent of His moving on your behalf.

The heart is a special place for the Lord’s goodness to dwell and grow, expand, and overflow such that you and I become an overflow of His goodness, including answers to prayer. Recognizing His goodness in the form of specific answers to prayer and instances of divine intervention on your behalf causes the heart’s capacity for love and outreach to grow, becoming more like Him.

He answered your prayer today and will tomorrow. Watch for it.
 
Amen.
