What does it mean to live a prophetic life or to express something prophetically?
While there are differences between the expressions of a prophetic life, the gift of prophecy or the office of a prophet, there is one key truth that connects them all: being prophetic is making known the mind, will and intention of God. To be truly prophetic is to have the capacity to hear God clearly and communicate Him accurately.
Regardless of our calling or gift, as believers we are all called to live prophetic lives. If we are going to hear God and reflect Him to others, we need to recognise the voice of the Lord – and this can only happen through intimacy with the Father.
As with every human relationship, recognition of another’s voice is established by spending time with that person. To hear Father speak requires us to be still and listen, taking time to quiet our souls amidst the busyness of our daily schedule.
As we read the Word and meditate on it, we see God revealed. In John 14:9, Jesus says, “Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father.” Jesus is the living Word who came to reflect the Father and to do His will. Being prophetic does not come from our opinions or philosophies, but from the Spirit of God. The nature of the prophetic is received through revelation as God shows us His reality. We receive revelation through the Holy Spirit as He guides us into truth.

Becoming More Prophetic
We can only become more prophetic through intimacy with the Father. Therefore, living a prophetic life requires a heart that is fully submitted to God. The spirit of prophesy is open to every believer – you and I are called to live a life that prophesies about Jesus in everything we do.
So, ask Father right now to speak to you. If you stop and listen, you will hear His voice. It starts as a whisper and becomes an empowered crescendo in your spirit. As you wait on Him, God will reveal Himself to you.
