May 31, 2022. Thicker Skin
“My People, be tough enough to take My truth and learn from those prophets and apostles who I have anointed to lead in these different days. Take back the yoke that you set aside rather than nursing personal wounds from the past long after I have healed you. For I have an abundance of ‘thicker skin’ available to you to lay gently on your soul, heart, and mind.
It looks like a balm on some of you, a shield on others, a beauty of radiance on yet more, but in all it brings My resistance to sin, and My determination to see you through your race on earth.
Come to me where you are weak, any unsteady warriors. Build the walls of my kingdom again with your leaders, together, as one.”
Activation : Ask The LORD to cover with soothing balm those tender areas of your life where you are fragile. Stay with him as he administers his gentle touch. Then ask him to firm up other parts where you need a defence shield, like a ‘thicker skin,’ before you pick up again the right yoke for you, today.
Nehemiah 4:6 (ESV) “So we built the wall. And all the wall was joined together to half its height, for the people had a mind to work.”
Proverbs 27:6 (AMP) “Faithful are the wounds of a friend [who corrects out of love and concern], but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful [because they serve his hidden agenda].”
May 30, 2022. Keep on Keeping on
“Your life is being played out in front of a capacity crowd, far more numerous than the vast stadia of this world. All of heaven is cheering you on. Does that bring you excitement? Listen and hear the loud affirmations calling your name. You have thought that what you do is hidden. Sometimes, indeed, there are places where I have hidden you for your own good. You, My Bride, though, are still counted as Mine, part of My enormous Kingdom Team. Do you see yourself running the race with My Life in you?
Now that you realise you are being supported in the heavenlies, what can you hold of Me today? Remember, all My fullness dwells in you! I see your capacity and I AM enlarging it. You may feel like you might burst as this spiritual internal pressure builds in you.
Just as the outer part of a tree grows, accommodating the inner growth that is not seen, My enlargement of your capacity strengthens you. I see your ‘inner person’ and I cheer you on. In fact, I lift you high on My Shoulders and say, ‘Look here everyone, my victor.’
Activation : Ask The LORD to show you three areas of your life where He and His angels have been supporting you and backing you up. Then adore him for his attentiveness.
Isaiah 41:10 (ESV) “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
Hebrews 12:1 (ESV) “Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.”
May 27, 2022. Living for Who?
“I see you and I honour you in your journey of life with Me. I Love your enlarging capacity to face your difficulties and I rejoice at your humble devotion to Me.
Now I challenge you to put aside even more of yourself, laying down your selfishness in a way that demonstrates how bored you are with living for yourself. For I AM bored with how much unnecessary time you lavish on you and yours and how you protect space for you, without inviting Me, YAHWH, into that space. Leave behind the hours of only planning and thinking of you.
I bought your life at my Son’s expense, for your value is immeasurable to Me. So, My Church, bring your fullness of heart to Me for the sake of others, as Christ did for you.”
Activation : Ask The Holy Spirit, ‘Where are you provoking today?’ Is it to rely less on yourself, your intellect? Have you yet come to the end of yourself? Choose this day how you will live. Do not run past His challenge. Trust in Him and He will act.
Philippians 2:3 (NIVUK) “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves.”
Romans 8:7 (TPT) “In fact, the mind-set focused on the flesh fights God’s plan and refuses to submit to his direction, because it cannot!”
May 26, 2022. Re-invigorate and Strengthen
“I AM your joy and your hope! I AM with you and I AM for you. I watch over you and I AM a passionate and zealous God, not willing for anyone to perish. As you walk with Me and as you look to Me, as you place your hope in Me and look in expectancy to Me, you will not be disappointed. You have cried out in My presence, “Lord, when will it come? When will your promise come?”
Yet, I AM calling you to re-invigorate. Strengthen yourself in Me, in My love for you. Strengthen yourself in walking with Me in your daily choices and decisions. Strengthen your brothers and sisters in Christ and see to it that no one falters. Know My Heart, the heart of a protective Father. I will lead you in paths of righteousness for My Name’s sake. Your hope in Me will not be cut off.”
Hebrews 12:11-13 (NIV) “No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it. Therefore, strengthen your feeble arms and weak knees. “Make level paths for your feet,” so that the lame may not be disabled, but rather healed.”
Psalm 27:13-14 (AMPC) “[What, what would have become of me] had I not believed that I would see The LORD’s goodness in the land of the living! Wait and hope for and expect The LORD; be brave and of good courage and let your heart be stout and enduring. Yes, wait for and hope for and expect The LORD.”
Proverbs 23:18 (AMPC) “For surely there is a latter end [a future and a reward], and your hope and expectation shall not be cut off.”
May 25, 2022. Release!
1 Kings 18:21 (NIV) “Elijah went before the people and said, “How long will you waver between two opinions? If The LORD is God, follow him; but if Baal is God, follow him.””
Some of you have been walking a tightrope; you have been walking a thin line. You have been caught between two minds; between the will of The LORD, and considering the questions posed to you by the enemy of your soul, who has been playing on desires that have been, as yet, unfulfilled in your life.
But the Spirit of The LORD says to you, “Release those desires to Me — bring them again to Me. Submit your will to Mine. It is in your surrender, where you allow Me to have My way, that a great release will come. A release from the storehouse of heaven, of My bountiful supply, where I long to fulfill your desires because you have first placed your hope in Me.
I AM the One Who holds your destiny. I AM the One Who holds the Key of David, Who opens and no-one will shut and who shuts and no-one shall open. You are at a juncture, a door of decision. Will you follow Me?”
John 14:15 (NIV) “If you love me, keep my commands…”
Luke 22: 42 (NIV) “…yet not my will, but yours be done.”
Psalm 37: 4 (AMP) “Delight yourself in The LORD, And He will give you the desires and petitions of your heart.”
May 24, 2022. Don’t Look Back
“For some time you have felt static, waiting, preparing. Now is the time to ask me for your next step. Each step may not make sense to man, but as I position My People, you need to trust Me, and get your shoes on. It’s time to get up, shake the dust off your feet, and get moving.
What once was, will never be again. How things were, have gone forever. Close the door on those days and ways. Set your face like flint into forward gear, and don’t look back.”
1 Kings 19:21 (NIV) “So Elisha left him and went back. He took his yoke of oxen and slaughtered them. He burned the ploughing equipment to cook the meat and gave it to the people, and they ate. Then he set out to follow Elijah and became his servant.”
Luke 17:32-33 (NIV) “Remember Lot’s wife! Whoever tries to keep their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life will preserve it.”
May 23, 2022. Be Whole
“It is time to bring Me the fragments, even the forgotten pieces of yourself. Your past; your sins; your mistakes; your wounds. Lay them all before Me and watch what I do.
You can’t fix yourself, but I can transform everything in just one breath.
Let Me put you back together in the best possible way. It’s My Nature to make all things new and to bring beauty from ashes. Now, I need you well. I need you whole.”
Activation : Change the tenses in the verses below to apply it directly to yourself. Speak it aloud as a decree daily.
1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 (MSG) “May God himself, the God who makes everything holy and whole, make you holy and whole, put you together — spirit, soul, and body — and keep you fit for the coming of our Master, Jesus Christ. The One who called you is completely dependable. If he said it, he’ll do it!”
May 20, 2022. I Tell You Who You Are
“Don’t look to a screen to shape your expectations of yourself. Neither should you line yourself up against the person next to you for comparison.
Come to Me. I alone will tell you who you are, for you are built in me and by Me.
You are My Likeness. My Beloved.
I know all your innermost thoughts so there is nothing to hide from Me. Instead, run towards Me with your heart open and ask Me to fill it with truth. Let Me shape your identity, blowing away the lies you have believed about yourself.
Let My Voice unlock you to be who I made you to be.”
Activation : Ask God to identify any lies that you have believed about yourself. Hand them to him in prayer, repent for believing them, and ask him to exchange the lies for truth and to give you a word that he relates specifically to your unique identity. Speak this Word over yourself daily.
1 Corinthians 3:16 (NIV) “Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst?”
John 14:20 (NIV) “On that day you will realise that I AM in my Father, and you are in me, and I AM in you.”
May 19, 2022. Prepare to Harvest
“In My Hand I carry a Sickle made of pure gold, refined in the fire of My Glory. It has been tested, tried, and found worthy for use in The Kingdom of God. I have removed every kind of impurity that would make it brittle or weak so that it does not break during times of intense pressure. The harvest season is long and laborious, so I have ensured that this tool will serve Me reliably as I thresh the fields.
This sickle represents My Church and I have sharpened her for the task ahead. She has been well prepared for the coming season, and I can rely on her to work smoothly with My Spirit. It is time to see a great harvest of souls come into The Kingdom of God. It is time to swing My Bride as a sharp threshing sledge over the ripe fields of The Nations!”
Prayer : Jesus, here I AM, send me where you need me. Show me how I can co-labor with you to see the full harvest come in!
Matthew 9:37-38 (ESV) “Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the labourers are few; therefore pray earnestly to The LORD of the harvest to send out labourers into his harvest.””
Isaiah 41:15 (NIV) “”See, I will make you into a threshing sledge, new and sharp, with many teeth. You will thresh the mountains and crush them, and reduce the hills to chaff.”
May 18, 2022. Increase Your Vision
“Watchmen on the walls, prepare yourself for a greater dimension of seeing! I will sharpen your spiritual sight and fine tune your discernment. Dreams will increase as I visit you in the night watches, covertly downloading strategies to thwart the enemy’s plans. As Elisha spied on the King of Aram in the Spirit, so you will be keenly aware of the enemy’s tactics, seeing into secret conversations held behind closed doors. You will engage in Holy Spirit espionage, uncovering the schemes of the devil so you can build your defences and prepare against the attacks. I will remove the dimness clouding your vision so that your intercession will hit the target with pin-point accuracy. I AM giving you the eyes of an eagle to see far and wide so that the plans of the enemy will be thwarted at every turn.”
Prayer: Jesus, I repent for any deception I have believed that has clouded my vision. Please remove the blinders so that I would see with great clarity, accurately perceiving the tactics of the enemy so they can be avoided!”
2 Kings 6:12 (NIV) “”None of us, my lord the king,” said one of his officers, “but Elisha, the prophet who is in Israel, tells the king of Israel the very words you speak in your bedroom.””
Isaiah 62:6 (ESV) “On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have set watchmen; all the day and all the night they shall never be silent.”
May 17, 2022. Step Out of Egypt
“As the Israelites stood on the shores of the Red Sea, they had a choice to make. Would they trust that I was who I said I was, or would they focus their attention on the Egyptian army descending upon them, and turn back?
Today, you are likewise presented with that choice. Will you go along with how the world does things? Will you believe the enemy’s lies which fill you with fear and doubt? Or, will you trust in Me, believing that I AM who I say I AM, and step out with Me?
I know that this is easier said than done, but did I not provide for the Israelites every need? Did I not demonstrate My Faithfulness at every turn? The same God who freed the captives, split the Red Sea, and rained Manna from above stands before you today. I invite you to step out with Me today.”
Activation : Repent and break all partnership with doubt and any lies of the enemy that would hold you back from embracing God in all His fullness. Step forward as you do this to symbolise your willingness to place your trust fully in Him.
Exodus 14:13-14 (NIV) “Moses answered the people, “Don’t be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance The LORD will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still.””
Psalm 91:9-11 (NIV) “If you say, “The LORD is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent. For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways.”
May 16, 2022. Build My Kingdom Here
Time. Money. Blueprints.
Timber. Nails. Cement.
“A host of supplies are needed before work can begin on any new building project. I AM in the details; I AM in the plans and in the construction. I need My People to put on their hard hats and prepare themselves — each and everyday — to be My Hands and Feet. Will you partner with Me — laying your own agendas aside — in building My Kingdom here? On Earth as it is in Heaven?
For those who are ready, stretch your hands high and receive the builders’ anointing. What this looks like for each of you is different, for you each have your own unique role in my limitless kingdom.
This is a time of joy and fulfillment. Each new day is an opportunity to draw close to me in this pursuit. Will you join me in setting the world alight with My Glory?”
Activation : To build with God, we need to have healthy and firm foundations. Do business with God today to ensure your foundations are solid.
Look at your foundations in the Spirit. Ask God to show you any cracks or things that shouldn’t be there. Is there anything you need to let go of? Spend whatever time is needed to ensure your foundations are firm in Him.
1 Corinthians 3:9 (TPT) “We are coworkers with God and you are God’s cultivated garden, the house he is building.”
1 Peter 2:4-6 (NIV) “As you come to him, the living Stone – rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to him – you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.”
May 13, 2022. A Divine Exchange
“This past season has brought many of you to your knees. It has been a season of challenge, struggle, and crying out to Me.
Do you recognize that I was with you in those moments of pain and discomfort?
Do you remember Me sitting by your side? Holding you as you wept?
I witnessed every tear and heard every cry. You were never alone; you are never alone. Look into The Spirit and allow me to reveal myself to you in those moments. Just as surely as I will never leave you nor forsake you, will I leave you in this place of heartache.
Bring me the hurts and wounds of this past season and lay them at My Feet. Do not allow them to fester and burn. Untangle yourself from what is the past so that you may embrace the new thing that I AM doing.
Trust Me to put your heart back together, one piece at a time.”
Activation : Sit with Jesus and write out a list of the heavy things you are carrying and ask him what He wants to give you in exchange. Lay down those burdens before Him and pick up the things He gives you in exchange.
1 Peter 5:7 (NIV) “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.”
Proverbs 23:18 (NIV) “There is surely a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off.”
May 12, 2022. Boldness
The Spirit of The LORD says that, “It is time for boldness! It is time to stand up and be counted. It is time to cross the line and to put your head above the trenches. Are you willing to stand up for truth, for holiness, and for The Glory of God, even if it hurts or means you may lose your friends or reputation? Are you willing to be the “no-compromise” generation, putting your head above the parapet where others dare not? Are you willing to lay down your life for God and be bold in your witness, truth, and testimony of who he is? Will you be a bold witness to the ways and teachings of Christ? Will you boldly carry the message like Peter and the apostles who boldly spoke The Word of God?”
Activation : Picture yourself standing in front of a line and ask God to show you what you need to let go of or repent of, for where you have compromised in the past. Begin to step over the line and ask God to give you courage and boldness to stand up for truth and holiness, and to not compromise.
Matthew 16:25 (BSB) “For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.”
May 11, 2022. Time to Speak
“Lift up your swords, My Warriors, My Brides. It is time to yield the sharp double edged sword and let The Word — My Word — go forth across the earth. Stand tall, My Bride, and advance! Use your voice as a weapon, letting the sword cut through the fear, reaching the distraught, for there is a time to be quiet but also a time to speak. There is a time for war and a time for peace; it is time for war, not giving in to the enemy’s lies and deception, but to declare as Jesus did: “Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God,” (Matthew 4:4, NIV).
So declare My Word on the streets, in the shops, in your houses, and in your dreams. Do not hold back, for My World needs to hear The Truth: “God so loved the world that He gave His One and only Son that whoever believes in Him, will not perish, but will have eternal life,” (John 3:16, NIV).
Hebrews 4:12 (NIV) “For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.”
May 10, 2022. My Truth
“Follow Me, My Bride, for I AM the Way, the TRUTH, and the Life. Sit with Me in My truth; let’s rest here awhile and listen to what I, the God of truth, reveals. Let My Truth speak. Let My Truth permeate into the depths of your being and reach the hidden places of your heart. There are too many tumultuous voices that are clamouring for your attention. Listen and be with Me in Truth and it will silence the enemy of lies. My Truth is strong. My Truth is pure. My Truth brings certainty in an ever changing world and it will hold you steady in a time of war.
My Truth is holy.
My Truth brings clarity.
My Truth sets you free.”
Activation : Wait on me and let my truth permeate into the core of who you are. Declare that you are mine; that you are chosen; that you are loved. Let my truth burn in you so that you may bring your truth to me, even the truth that reveals those dark and hidden things you have tried to hide. Let’s meet in truth and let me set you free from everything that has hindered you.
John 8:31-32 (NIV) “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
May 9, 2022. Treasure
“For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” Luke 12:34 ESV.
“I treasure you so much that I gave My Son in exchange for you. I treasure you My Child; I treasure all of My Children. I was willing to pay the cost for their return. I counted the cost, even as My Son counted the cost on the road to Jerusalem, as he set His Face to complete the task before Him, as He wrestled in the garden of Gethsemane and yet submitted to My Will, choosing the pain, the suffering and the agony, for the joy that was beyond the cross.
Have you counted the cost? Have you set your face to pay the cost of following, of being My Child? Have you wrestled your will into submission to Mine? Are there areas where it still feels like the cost is high, where you have not settled the wrestle?
What are the treasures of your heart? Are there still treasures that you prize more highly than Me? They are so far outweighed by the treasure of Heaven. My Son shines brighter than the most precious, earthly glitter. The Pearl of Great Price is worth every ounce of your life, every penny, every sacrifice, every lesser love relinquished.
Am I your greatest treasure?”
Activation : Ask The Holy Spirit to show you anything that threatens God’s rule and reign, anything that is a pretender to the throne in your life.
Matthew 6:19-20 (NIV) “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.”
Luke 9:24-25 (ESV) “For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it. For what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses or forfeits himself?”
Luke 12:20-21 (ESV) “But God said to him, ‘Fool! This night your soul is required of you, and the things you have prepared, whose will they be?’ So is the one who lays up treasure for himself and is not rich toward God.”
May 6, 2022. Keeping Up Appearances
“Oh, My People, you have been deceived by the world into thinking it is all about how it looks from the outside. You have been seduced into believing that what other people think matters more than righteousness and integrity. You have been more concerned with your reputation than mine. You have been deceived into thinking you are doing it for Me — for reasons of honour, excellence, and service — in order to build My House. In reality, you have been building your house.
My ways are not your ways and my way has always been one that is concerned with the heart more than the externals. I AM coming with My Scalpel to rightly divide what is real and authentic from the counterfeit and the impure. I will cut through the external fripperies, through the gloss and veneer to the real and authentic beneath. In this time, there will be those who you discover are all veneer and no substance below. Be prepared as I strip away those with artificiality in their hearts, as I seek a pure bride whose heart is wholly Mine.”
Activation : Use the prayer from Psalm 139 as you engage with Holy Spirit in response to this word, allowing him to examine the “thoughts and intentions of your heart,” to shine his light and expose anywhere the enemy has led you into deception.
Isaiah 29:13 (NIV) “The LORD says: “These people come near to me with their mouth and honour me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. Their worship of me is based on merely human rules they have been taught.”
1 Samuel 16:7 (ESV) “But The LORD said to Samuel, “Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For The LORD sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but The LORD looks on the heart.””
Psalm 139:23 (ESV) “Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts!”
May 5, 2022. All of Your Heart
“The heart of the matter is a matter of the heart. It has always been about your heart. You can keep Me at arms length, trying to impress Me with your prayers, your devotions, your service, and your ministry. You can try to satisfy me with less but ultimately it is your heart that I long for. Don’t hold back; I didn’t. Don’t divide your heart into compartments; I want it all, even as I gave it all for you.
I laid My Heart out — bared for the world to see — exposed, and visible. I gave you My Heart. I laid down my life and said, “I AM yours; I AM committed.” I long for you to acknowledge my love, to allow it to unlock a deep, deep work within your heart so that your response is one of equal abandon, of unreserved, open-hearted surrender of everything. I long for you to risk your heart, all of your heart. Trust your heart to Me fully, completely, with abandon. Your heart is so precious to Me; I cherish your heart; I will always cherish your heart.”
Activation : Jesus, your pearl of very great price, is inviting you into a deeper level of trust and commitment; inviting you to let him search your heart for depths that are still closed to him, places where you have withheld trust, where you have not surrendered. We are told that our heart can be deceitful and sometimes we don’t see it. Ask The Holy Spirit to show you where you are still holding back and any areas where there is a lack of surrender.
Mark 12:30 (ESV) “And you shall love The LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.”
Matthew 13:45-46 (TPT) “Heaven’s kingdom realm is also like a jewel merchant in search of rare pearls. When he discovered one very precious and exquisite pearl, he immediately gave up all he had in exchange for it.”
Proverbs 3:5 (ESV) “Trust in The LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.”
Jeremiah 29:13 (ESV) “You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.”
May 4, 2022. Praise and Advance!
“Do you see the movement, the marching of boots? The boots of the gospel of peace are marching to the rhythm of the Lion of the Tribe of Judah! These boots will now go forth in partnership with the praise of His name.
It is time to release your sound. I AM increasing the rhythm of praise and worship in the earth realm. As this happens, so too will evangelism gain greater traction, and fresh downloads will be released among My people. This will bring forward momentum, resulting in a multiplication of harvest and Kingdom advancement.
I AM calling you, My Body, out of a season of stillness and dryness, to come again to the waters, to be refreshed, refilled, re-fueled, and revived to go out with My word in your mouth. Do not be afraid!
Do not be afraid of what you will say or how you will say it. At the time it will become clear, and you will be a witness in your workplace, in your family, on your street, and in your town. I will be glorified through your praise and through your life.
Make room for the fresh wind and move of My Spirit among you corporately, and so will I speak and release strategies for breakthrough and Kingdom advancement.
Your praise will make way for the angelic to be released to go on assignment, where new ground will be broken, and many lives will be transformed and saved.”
Acts 13:2 (NIV) “While they were worshipping The LORD and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, “Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.””
Acts 16: 25-31 (NIV) “About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was such a violent earthquake that the foundations of the prison were shaken. At once all the prison doors flew open, and everyone’s chains came loose. The jailer woke up, and when he saw the prison doors open, he drew his sword and was about to kill himself because he thought the prisoners had escaped. But Paul shouted, “Don’t harm yourself! We are all here!” The jailer called for lights, rushed in and fell trembling before Paul and Silas. He then brought them out and asked, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” They replied, “Believe in The LORD Jesus, and you will be saved—you and your household.””
May 3, 2022. My Voice
“My Heart is burning for My young ones whom My shepherds have ignored and rejected. My young ones are without My breath and walking in the path that I have not called them into because My Shepherds have failed to direct them.
I AM calling My young ones to hear My Voice and walk in the path of holiness and righteousness. Remove the confusing voices of the enemy trying to distract you to take the wrong path. Call My Name, YHWH and I AM waiting, yes just for you, My Child.”
Activation : Ask The Holy Spirit to show you the areas that you haven’t partnered with God in parenting, mentoring, supporting, and encouraging young ones around you. This could be pride or any other sin in your life. Repent for it. Now start to speak over them (in person if you can) “I remove every confusing voice that has blocked your ability to hear the Voice of The Holy Spirit, in the Name of Jesus.”
Isaiah 30:31 (EXB) “Assyria will be afraid [terrorized; or shattered] when it hears the voice of The LORD, because He will strike Assyria with a rod.”
Psalm 29:4 (BSB) “The voice of The LORD is powerful; the voice of The LORD is majestic.”
Proverbs 18:10 (EXB) “The Name of The LORD is like a strong tower; those who do right [the righteous] can run to Him for safety [refuge].”
May 2, 2022. Whose Victory Is It?
“Are you tired, are you weary, are you about done? Are you through with the constant battle just to keep your head above the water? Are you ready to give up? Well, I have good news for you: this battle can not be won on your own. You see, I know your frailties, and I know your weaknesses; I know where you struggle, and I know your defeats. But know this too: this battle is not yours alone, the battle is mine, and if the battle is mine then the victory is already won. For I have placed every enemy under the feet of my Son; every enemy, every obstacle, every lack, every disease, every stronghold is under His feet. I have the victory and I want you to walk in that victory as I share the spoils of the battle with you.”
Activation : As a body of believers, we can easily keep our struggles to ourselves, not wanting others to know what we are going through. We, therefore, keep ourselves in shame and defeat, hiding it because of our pride. Today, challenge yourself to speak to a trustworthy person about your struggles. Pray together, for this is the function of the body, and this is how we walk in victory.
Psalm 44:3 (NIV) “It was not by their sword that they won the land, nor did their arm bring them victory; it was your right hand, your arm, and the light of your face, for you loved them.”
1 Corinthians 15:57 (NIV) “But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
Psalms 8:5-6 (NIV) “You have made them a little lower than the angels and crowned them with glory and honour. You made them rulers over the works of your hands; you put everything under their feet.”
1 John 5:3-5 (NIV) “And his commands are not burdensome, for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.”
