The victory belongs to the Lord. Everything belongs to Him and He has already won. Psalm 24:1
Since the election, I have felt very strong in my spirit that it is imperative that God’s people “rush forward” and NOT SHRINK BACK!
As we are aware of all the riots and disenchanted voices everywhere, there needs to be ONE voice, a united voice, speaking out into the spiritual realm, across our land. And that voice is the voice of the bride of Christ. I believe NOW, more than ever, the body of Christ needs to use its voice to speak out the heart of God.
Over the past 7-8 days, I have felt compelled to constantly be in prayer all day. We know that the scripture admonishes us to pray without ceasing and this is what I am referring to. Whatever I am doing, whether standing and cooking, sitting or driving my car, I feel a voice rising up within me to proclaim God’s goodness, favor, mercy and power wherever I go. I sense it is not my own voice, but the voice of God’s spirit within me as a believer, that is wanting to be released.
It is like a bursting fountain of water that I cannot stop. I don’t even need to think about it, it just constantly flows out of my mouth. Thankfulness begins to bubble up inside of me and pour out moment by moment.
As I have been hearing about the riots and protests everywhere, I am reminded of the passage of scripture in Revelation 12:15 where the dragon opens his mouth and spews forth water in order to drown “the woman” who gave birth to the child. This is what I see, in type, that the enemy of God’s people, is angry and is spewing forth his spirits of hatred, violence, murder, and dissention upon our land. A flood of waters has been poured out in order to drown out the power and voice of God’s people. Can you see the violent flood moving forth to keep everyone in fear and pushed down to the ground? Rushing water has the power to carry away everything in its path to complete destruction.
It is now time for the body of Christ, to rise up, shake off all complacency, apathy and offense and take her rightful place as a true heir of God’s Kingdom. As people of God we have the ability to set the tone and change the atmosphere with our love and declarations. Because of Jesus’ precious blood, we have been given power and authority on this earth for good.
I encourage everyone to be filled with Christ’s beautiful spirit, to walk circumspectly and soberly now more than ever. Take your place and declare forth God’s mercy, love and power where ever you go! Refuse every spirit of offense that comes your way and refuse to be caught up in disagreements and paltry words.
Life and death are in our tongue and each individual has the ability to shift realms and territories with their authority and voice. So use your mouth for good and righteousness!
I see the bride of Christ standing strong, united, and lifting up her voice in declaration of God’s love and power! We can choose to look at what is going on around us through the eyes of God, which is a heavenly perspective, or through a filter of hurt and fear, which is an earthly perspective. We must set aside our petty differences and join arms with one another in love and unity. When we do this, we will push back the enemy’s line and his plans and assignments will be defeated.
Take your territory Child of God! Walk, move, and run forward without fear. For God did not give us a spirit of fear, but of love, power and a sound mind. We have the mind of Christ. Bind His thoughts to your mind and speak forth HIS declarations daily.
I firmly believe that if the body of Christ will activate this principle in every city and region across the nation, we can and WILL see a demise in the protests and angry mobs. And the waters of the evil one will be swallowed up (Revelation 12:16)
