I heard this today. “You are not a nobody! You are a Somebody in Jesus!”
Our God doesn’t want us to be satisfied with the “status quo.” Sometimes we look at our circumstances and think nothing is going to change, that it will stay the same no matter what we say or do.
We feel we don’t matter in this world. We begin to believe the enemy’s lies that things will proceed as they always have and there is nothing we can do about it.
But Father is wanting us to rise up out of our sleep. He wants us to shake ourselves off and be about The Father’s Business.
He wants us to see who we are in Him. He wants you to know, Child of God, that you were born for such a time as this.
You are a Warrior. You are a Life Changer and a World Shaker!
You are a Catalyst who will bring forth a mighty change for yourself, your family, and even your city and nation.
He has called you to speak to those things that are not so that they will become! You are those who bring the invisible things of the Spirit into the visible realm.
You are one who changes the very atmosphere around you. You are the Manifesters of His Presence in this world today!
Arise, shake off the dust of the world, Mighty Warrior. You still have a Word in your mouth for the weary, healing in your hands for the sick, your shoes shod with the gospel of Shalom Peace to trample on the serpents and scorpions, and His Authority over ALL the power of the enemy and NOTHING shall by any means harm you!
“Beloved. Wake up, O My Sleeper, rise up from the dead, for Christ is shining upon you and in you.
Awaken, My Watchers on the Wall. You are important in this world today. Arise, shine, for your Light has come, and The Glory of The LORD rises upon you.
The hour has come for you to wake up from your slumber, My Child, for He who is your Salvation is near.
Shake off the dust of the enemy and know that I have called you forth to change lives. I have chosen you to conquer the kingdom of darkness by the Spirit of God.
The enemy would lull you to sleep and inactivity with his lies that nothing will ever change. But do not listen to him, My Love. I have made you more than Conqueror through Him who loves you.
As you believe so speak it forth into the atmosphere. Behold, I AM doing a New Thing. I have given you the tongue of the learned, that you would know how to speak a word in season to him who is weary.
I awaken you morning by morning, I awaken your ear to hear as the wise. Surely your LORD GOD does nothing without revealing His Plan to His servants the prophets.
The Lion has roared — who will not fear? Yahweh has spoken — who will not prophesy?
Like a lion roaring or a young lion over its prey — and though a band of shepherds is called out against it, it is not terrified by their shouting or subdued by their clamor — so The LORD of Hosts will come down to do battle with you, My Warrior.
I AM with you always even unto the end of the age. And I will back your words with signs and wonders following.
Awake, awake, oh Sleeper. I AM stirring up your Spirit. I AM pouring new strength into you.
We have work to do, Beloved. So let us roar together. And I shall make you a catalyst of change.
My Glory shall go before you. I have you surrounded by the Angelic Hosts. Hear what the Spirit is saying.
There is something BIG happening, My Child. Can you feel it in the Air?
It is just a matter of time, Beloved. What I have spoken shall be done. I have declared that is finished.
You shall speak and Heaven will touch earth and you will see miracles. Awaken My People.
Awaken those who are Mine and call them forth. My Power is being released upon all who will receive it.
Suddenly, it shall happen. It is the season of AWE. Fear not, It is the Dawn of a New Day.”
STATUS QUO : The existing state of affairs, the current situation; the way things are now; thinking nothing will or can change; the way things are, as opposed to the way they could be.
