OVERVIEW: When God promises you something, everything is in that promise.
God tests the quality of our trust with His promises.
When He gives you His word, He gives you everything.
Trust the promise no matter what else is going on.
Prophecy is the end of supplication and intercession. It’s the beginning of proclamation.
Main role of a prophet:
1) When life is tough, a prophet tells you who you are in God.
2) When life is good, a prophet reminds you to not get complacent.
The baseline for all promises is: “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
