The Lifestyle of a Prophet

I just finished reading The Lifestyle of a Prophet by James W. Goll and wanted to share his list of how to grow in the prophetic:

  1. Go to church – be around God
  2. Love mercy. Micah 6:8 says to do justice, love kindness and walk humbly with your God.
  3. Pray in the spirit
  4. Ask God! Listen! Seek!
  5. Don’t share everything God tells you. Sometimes it’s God’s secret. Ask permission.
  6. Love the anointing. The presence of the Holy Spirit. “Some things are better ‘caught’ then ‘taught’”.
  7. Risk! Move out of your comfort zone. Step out in faith. Keep taking progressive steps and you’ll grow. Climb out of your boat and trust the Lord.
Goll tells us we are to have intimacy with God. We must lean on Jesus. Surrender to Him. Be passionate about the cross. And like good friends hang out together. Have a relationship that is established over time. Share your heart with Him. The way we hear His voice is through a relationship with Him. And what we hear we share.

I received this book from Chosen books in exchange for an honest review. The book is not an easy read if you are really trying to “get it”. But it is worth the effort.
