Beloved, Intercessory prayer is still an open secret of bearing fruit that remains.
As I enter into my prayer time, I sing boldly, “Nothing but The Blood of Jesus!” The cleansing healing power of the blood of Jesus that was shed for us.
The Word of God says that the supreme test of love is not in overwhelming emotion, but willingness to lay down our life for a friend.
John 15:13 says “Greater love has no man than this…”
When we stop and realize that Jesus did this and also laid it down for His enemies… where does that leave us?
Because Love is commanded, it is possible and Paul shares with us The Enabling Secret.
The Love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us (Romans 5:5). Supernatural love is for us to appropriate and manifest to our fellowman.
The LORD said, “No longer do I call you slaves but I call you friends….” Powerful intimacy is given to us … It comes from abiding. It is a friendship based on loving obedience.
Many times when I think of abiding, I think of abiding under His shadow. As I recall the scripture in Acts 5:15 speaking of Peter’s shadow.
I ask myself would it be in this season, we would see this very expectation and hope for miracles?
“…… to such an extent that they even carried the sick out into the streets and laid them on cots and pallets, so that when Peter came by at least his shadow might fall on any one of them.”
As we approach mid-September, The LORD is saying it truly is a birthing month and a time to always remember. Old things shall be removed, just like ‘the afterbirth’ because the new things are springing forth speedily.
That which was cast down and even thrown aside is rising. The LORD is calling forth many who have been in the ‘shadows’.
Have you noticed how diversity is being paired together with tenacity and order is being linked with submission?
Obedience is resulting in deeper empowerment and gladness is taking away disappointment. Whatever the sacrifice, great is your reward.
Even our pain is now producing promotion. Nothing is wasted, nothing is lost. It is all worth the cost.
Count it all joy and be thankful for HIS direction, His protection and know HE is always on time . He will have the last word. He has saved the best times to rise up amidst the worse times.
The LORD spoke this to me in 2018 and just this morning, HE said again. “The cream of the crop is rising to the top. Quality shall trump quantity!”
Beloved, I am truly beginning to see it come to pass in this time of great chaos.
He is putting together connections for you and straightening out all of the “kinks” especially in your thinking about this present hour. Agreement shall produce unity and oneness shall triumph.
The pathway of life is visibly narrow in this new era. The playing field is being cleared and the team players are being chosen and prepared to meet the challenges head on with courage and confidence.
The Sword of The LORD is cutting through the maize and truth shall rule and reign. The LORD has placed before us a golden opportunity to pray without ceasing.
Beloved, never forget that prayer is an open opportunity to demonstrate the love that never fails.
Won’t you show forth the heart of God by joining hands with someone in agreement, as you pray and take a stand for America and for our President Trump to lead us to a victorious triumphant finale?
