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.

At The Center

A family altar is the center—the heart of the home. It’s where we discover our spiritual inheritance. It is where faith develops, heartache is pre-empted, and families grow together spiritually.
 
“Arise, cry out in the night,
  as the watches of the night begin;
pour out your heart like water
  in the presence of the Lord.
Lift up your hands to Him
  for the lives of your children…”
(Lamentations 2:19, NIV)
 
Don’t put it off. Build your altar—not a physical altar necessarily; rather, a place in the home everyone will realize is established for special times together. Expect God’s presence to come as you gather. Expect His glory to come. Expect miracles. Pray big prayers. Believe for the impossible!
 
Amen.

Impartation

Times of impartation are crossroads, prized for what they produce in our lives and especially for the changed perspective they leave with us. Once we encounter the Lord in a higher way, we are never the same again.

As surely as our lives are containers sent by the Lord for many purposes, He also sends us into settings orchestrated for the purpose of change, for an increase of true spiritual substance and dramatic deliverances. 

Teaching informs but impartations establish. Paul desired to come to the people, “that He might impart some spiritual gift… that they would be established.”

Amen.

Adversarial Advantage

Behavior and attitudes change subtly over time, and unless something or someone brings them to our attention, we aren’t necessarily aware of wrong patterns that develop. The person least likely to say anything good may be the needed attention-bringer. All criticism contains an element of truth.

It’s important to listen to what your opposition has to say. An opponent will tell you things friends might not. An adversary’s criticism often sheds light, yielding up missing pieces to the puzzle, perhaps an embarrassing detail or maybe, and especially, the key to breakthrough.

Satan is accuser and adversary, and we know of course, to steadfastly resist him—absolutely; but another place in the Word instructs “agree with your adversary.” A friend “sharpens the countenance of a friend” and ideally that’s true, but when was the last time a friend was the sharpening iron to get your attention and force you to see the thing you absolutely refused to admit about yourself?

We can be thick-headed—slow to really get it, if you know what I mean! Recurring patterns are both cause and effect, and undetected, they continue unrestrained in repetitious circles while we honestly haven’t a clue why our breakthrough is delayed. 

Whatever a man sows, he will also reap.

Amen.

Guilt-Driven

Guilt is a spiritual force. 

Guilt is a survivor, returning again and again to influence motives. Guilt is a death arrow to relationships. Guilt finds its base in unbelief—refuse to align with it! Never negotiate with guilt and never require someone else to carry guilt-blame for your sin or someone else’s. Disconnect with guilt, and its evil force, responsible for trapping you, again and again, will leave.

Faith in God refuses guilt. The Lord appeals to the human spirit by His Holy Spirit, not through guilt. The Spirit’s appeal is opposite to guilt; it is the agent of divine rescue and encouragement, not condemnation. You want to hear the Lord, not guilt, clearly, in your heart.

Right standing with God is solid ground upon which we may stand against guilt’s connection to evil. Inquire of the Lord what is right. If you’ve done anything other than what is right, ask forgiveness, and move on. Settle it in your own mind, from now on, give guilt “no place.”

Don’t allow guilt to dictate to you—ever!

Amen.

Willing To Hear

Standards of Bible truth are muddied when for convenience’s sake, we choose surface truth only. When this happens, a distinction is made: The Lord doesn’t conform to our preferences or whim; rather, He calls us to conform to His standard, to represent Him correctly and draw from His Word.

Foolishness is associated with the un-teachable person. Their words reveal ignorance. Without ears to hear, they do not—cannot—understand. Unfortunately, they are the very ones who may not even read the Bible. Knowledge for them consists of select verses emboldened by documentary-style theology and philosophical thought.

False information represented as true, again and again, produces belief in those things. Add to repeated misinformation an absence of relationship with God, and the result is offense—offended for truth’s sake, truth according to God’s Word, as it truly is. 

Jesus understood that miracles, like blind eyes receiving sight, sick and disabled bodies being made whole, and the dead being raised back to life would offend earth-bound hearts; He knew any congregation distanced from the Lord to the point of unbelief would attack any message greater than their experience.

Amen.

Prophetic Believers

We partner prophetically with the Lord. We see ahead to envision the future, declaring, Thy Kingdom come, Lord, thy will be done on earth as it is—just like it is—in heaven. We declare the Kingdom with a present tense, “now” perspective, combined with prophetic “future” expectation. 
 
The Gospel of Jesus Christ proclaims God’s plan for His creation. The power of that plan is made known in His message and its demonstration, separating the hearer to it. Prophetic ministry declares something beyond—separating us for something better and greater.
 
Avoid anything that denies the importance of prophecy. Keep your own vision high—stay above the chatter. Preserve those deep roots in God, always reaching deeper. Depth calls for more depth and more truth, and truth is a separator.
 
Amen.
 
Psalm 42
