We cannot say we know God without having a real relationship with Him.
I say this because we have entered into a season for prayer and consecration. Knowing God is the most valuable and irreplaceable thing that we could ever obtain in this time is an understatement.
We should introspectively look at ourselves and ask,
“How well do I know God?” and,
“What has God been trying to communicate to me?”
Having trust in God and walking in it can help us to get from one level of understanding to another.
Our ability to hold during difficult times can add interest to the principal of that which is stored up in our hearts as treasures.
The LORD began to show me the book of Joshua. He showed me how the children of Israel had been given a land flowing with milk and honey, and at the same time it was occupied by the Canaanites, Hittites, Hivites, Perizzites, Girgashites, Amorites and Jebusites.
I began to see us as that land of Canaan full of promise, prosperity, and great potential, but within that land some of us are fighting within ourselves to get things out that need to be removed.
It is much like us who have come into a deep understanding that we belong to The LORD only to see the “…ITES” in our lives rear their ugly heads.
Have you ever gone to an arcade and had to battle with the heads that keep popping up from the holes and you with your mallet try to knock them down into place?
Well many times it’s like we are dealing with inner attitudes, feelings, fighting depression, and the like.
Even while helping others, our love ones and family who are going through deep struggles and with our mallet knocking down those heads only to see others pop up one after the next.
While they were subduing their enemies as well as their occupying the land there were times where the land was at rest from their enemies.
They were given detailed plans and instructions in order to stay the course and prevail in the fight.
In the very midst of everything I begin to see there was a common gold thread that was weaved throughout the fabric of this word and it declared The LORD’s promise to His people.
As The LORD spoke, they fought and begin to see with their own eyes victory through the fulfilled word of The LORD.
Sometimes the battle is so ingrained in us until we walk constantly in war mode even before the presence of The LORD.
Tucked away in the faith of God’s promises there was rest, power, and strategy. The more we seek deeply into our times with Him, we begin to see solutions, and the scales of unbelief begin to fall from our eyes.
We truly begin to understand that surely there are more with us than those that are against us.
The reality that greater is He that is within us than he that is in the world comes alive.
Light begins to shine into the darkness and we begin to see the morning sun as it crest with in us.
I want to leave you with this word that He spoke to me, “Increase!”
Grow and wax strong in the things of The LORD. Fill your heart with His wisdom and His words and His promises.
Ever searching and ever learning more about Him. We become what we gaze and focus upon. We cannot allow the dictates of the enemy to overcome us.
In John 3:30, John said, “He (The LORD) must increase while I must decrease.”
In Luke 2:52, says, “Jesus increased in wisdom and statue in favor with God and men.”
In 1 Corinthians 3:6, Paul says, “I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.”
Isaiah 9:7 tells us that the Government of God will increase upon the land.
I can hear Him calling us out of the night season of time saying: “My Sons, My Daughters, arise and come close to me, for in the depth of your abiding in me I shall increase you mightily.
Understand that what you’ve tried to battle and overcome in times past you must walk out of.
For I AM calling you into my presence to reveal to you the deep things of My Word, and My very plan for your life.
You will see it in Me, as you will see it in My Word. For within it is My Counsel, and you will possess it even as it is yours this very day.”
During this very key time, there must be a walking away from the mixture and rudiments of men and follow The LORD God in His fullness….
“Many plans occupy the mind of a man but The LORD purposes will prevail,” Proverbs 19:21.
“There are many devices in a man’s heart; nevertheless the counsel of The LORD, that shall stand,” Proverbs 19:21.
