Mighty Waters

waters

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)

Crossing Over

crossing over

Sometimes we all need a reminder that we are in a battle for the lives and souls of mankind. We have an enemy.  And he often knows who we are before we do.  The enemy strategically targets…..and guess what?  YOU and I are a target!  As God’s children, we are created in His image and likeness and we are marked.  And when you and I are marked by the Most High God, we become noted by the enemy.

Oftentimes the attacks on your life have more to do with who you might be in the future than who you are right now or even who you have been in the past. Our enemy sets up ambush early in our lives thru pain and trauma and will not relent until he has utterly destroyed. BUT, your history does not determine your destiny!  And your past does not have to proclaim your future!

I see this ambush across our land today to divide, spread violence and hatred……But I also see the light and love of God shining through.

When man decides to do what is right in his own eyes, there will never be justice or fairness. Until we place ourselves back under the submission of God, our land will not have rest.  The enemy has come in like a flood, but God has raised a standard.  And that is THE POWER OF HIS LOVE!

We may be targeted by the enemy for destruction, but we also have been called to be history makers!   Someone who can transform their world and impact their community with the goodness of Christ.

God created man as the pinnacle of His creation. When He made man and woman, he stepped back and said “it is good!”  In Psalm 8, David proclaims that man has been crowned with glory and honor by God and given dominion over all creation….in fact, all things have been put under man’s feet.

This includes, prejudices, hatred, feelings, murderous thoughts and the like. As human beings, we do not have to be controlled by the injustices of this world or the emotions stirred up by others.  We can put off these fleshly clothes and put on love, mercy, forgiveness and compassion….even when we don’t “feel like it.”

His Love Changes Everything

If God were to offer us a challenge, I think it would be this. To walk every day in His love!  To wake up each day and turn away from the lens of the past.  To trust God in all things and purpose within our hearts to extend kindness, goodness and compassion towards everyone.  When we do this, peace will flood our land.  And it will not be a surprise ambush, but a great deluge that will cover the deeds of hatred and division.  Love gathers…..hatred divides.

Who are you going to be? I hear God asking this question of all mankind.  Whom will you serve today?  Will it be your emotions and circumstances that have happened yesterday?  Or will you defy popular culture and be a history maker for righteousness and honor?

You and I are God’s workmanship, created, shaped and formed in Christ, the anointed One for GOOD works. (Ephesians 2:10) You and I have the opportunity to influence our world, and our cities, with God’s goodness.  He has created a people to do this very thing.  Let us rise to this occasion and not shrink back.  If everyone who calls themselves by the name of Christ would stand in the power of God’s love, I promise we would see our communities and world transformed!

You are marked for greatness!   Who are you going to be today?
