Today I used the verse below as a weapon to stomp on the enemy’s head. He kept trying to creep up and place degrading thoughts in my mind about myself. Hurtful words that had been spoken to me by another person, now used as a dagger the enemy constantly tries to annihilate me with.
Today I spoke this verse over myself again and again and it fortified a wall of the word of God around me blocking the enemy’s voice. I sat in peace when I normally would have been in turmoil.
Today, declaring this verse put on display the power of the word of God when it is hidden in our hearts and used against the enemy, as the word of Our Testimony. ⚡ I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus.⚡
Righteousness means right standing with God. I know the purity of my heart and actions before God. I know my position in Christ. I am a daughter of the King.
Let this verse sink into your heart. Let it become your Battle Cry when the enemy comes to fill your mind with thoughts that tear you down. Knowing who we are in Christ enables us to walk each day filled with his grace and enablement to be able to do everything he has called us to do.
He made Christ who knew no sin to [judicially] be sin on our behalf, so that in Him we would become the righteousness of God [that is, we would be made acceptable to Him and placed in a right relationship with Him by His gracious lovingkindness]. 2 Corinthians 5:21 Amplified
Going on the theme of yesterday’s post, this scripture was burning in my heart this morning for some of the people I’m praying for. I encourage you to speak out loud this verse but insert the name of the person you are praying for in place of the word “You”.
I am convinced and confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will [continue to] perfect and complete it until the day of Christ Jesus [the time of His return]. Philippians 1:6 Amplified Version
SO, SAY THIS. GET IT INTO YOUR SPIRIT AND “STIR UP” YOUR FAITH!
I am convinced and confident that He who HAS begun a good work in _________ WILL COMPLETE IT until the day that Jesus Christ returns.
There’s something that happens in your spirit when you hear with your ears what you are thinking in your mind. The Bible talks about our thoughts being powerful but even more powerful is declaring the word of God in a situation and joining together your thoughts and heart for someone.
When our faith is “stirred” it means that we are activating it. Like when you put yeast in bread dough. That dough would just sit there and do nothing if the yeast was not added. In the Bible it talks about a little leaven, leavens the whole lump. So does our faith when it is activated in our spirit. It takes our thoughts and emotions and joins it with our spirit. That is where we began to see things from Heaven’s perspective instead of an Earthly perspective. It allows us to gain hope when everything we see in the natural seems hopeless.
So say to your spirit Wake Up! Start declaring with your mouth the Word of God over those who are praying for and in your own situations. There is nothing like getting out of your own pit by focusing your thoughts and prayers on someone else. We can get caught in our own bubble of a world and look at our own junk and situations causing us to go in a downward spiral.
What we need to do is get our eyes OFF of ourselves, and on to Christ. Through Christ see will people through His eyes and partner with Him to see breakthrough for someone else. That is when you begin to feel lighter and start feeling hope and joy in your own life.
It’s time to start declaring the word of God and stirring up our spirit with faith!
We sang this song when I was little. I love singing scripture!
I see you. I hear you. I haven’t forgotten about you. I know your heart. I know your dreams. I remember what I have said to you. I have spoken my words of life and hope and put dreams inside of you.
Don’t keep looking back. Don’t compare. I am doing a new thing. Keep pressing in. Don’t let the heavy clouds of despair and doubt and depression fill your mind and spirit. I am coming to BLOW BLOW BLOW off the dust. Blow off the shackles that bind you. Yes BLOW the shackles. Because they are not strong. They are weak put there by your own imagination. I speak to you today.
I loose the bonds of weariness. I loose the bonds of doubt and fear and the feeling of being trapped. I loose you this day says your God. Listen to me. Spend time with me. I miss you more than you miss me. In my presence there is Joy. In my presence there is peace. In my presence there is Hope. Put your dreams and destiny into my hands.
This is a season that looks different than you expected. But nothing is a surprise to me. I have set you high upon a rock. On a firm foundation. That foundation will not be shaken. Hold fast to my word. Hold fast to my promises. For it is the weak who say I am strong. It is the poor who say I am rich.
Dwell with me. Dwell in the safety of my presence. Do not be distracted by the words of the world. My plan has never wavered. Come back to me. I need you. I want you. I can hear your cries. You are my beloved. I am jealous for you.
Look for me around you. See what I am doing in other places. Diamonds are created under deep pressure and heat. Don’t be afraid that you wont come out refined and beautiful. For there is nothing impossible with me. It wont look like you thought. It will be just what I want.
See this day I have set before you life or death. Choose life. Live in freedom. Walk in freedom. Speak with a tongue set free from strife or heaviness. Declare to this place that the Lord reigns. I am coming to breathe life back into this place.
You have heard those around the country speaking of a new wave, it is coming. Press into it. Stir up that hunger once again.
There have been those who have left earth with mantels that need to be picked up. Pick them up says your God. Pick up the mantels of the prophets, the worship leaders, the teachers and the preachers, the evangelists and the miracle workers.
What do you want me to do for you?? What do you want to see happen this day. It is a day where you have a slate that is blank before you. ASK BIG OF YOUR GOD!! Don’t miss out on this opportunity. What do you want me to do?? What ?? Don’t hold back in fear to ask big.
DREAM AGAIN!!!!!!!! Dream again!!!!
I take the coal from the alter and I seal this with a holy kiss.
Wow, Matthew 24:13 jumped off the page this morning. Especially the definition of STAND Firm. So HOW do we do that when everything appears chaotic around us? It starts by knowing who we stand firm with! The character and words of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit are unchangeable. His words Always come to pass. Maybe not in our timing, but his Promises are true. The word of God, the Bible is our firm foundation. It is not a book of nice stories, it is the infallible words of God with accurate historical facts. It is our rock and our source. It never changes.
Our PEACE is not determined by what we see outside, it comes from trusting and yielding to the Holy Spirit. He is our pure peace. We might have fun doing things in life, but it doesn’t bring true lasting deep peace. It is in that place of peace where we can relax and ask God to speak to us. It could be through his Word, through worship, soaking, praying in the spirit, or just being quiet. He wants to speak to us more than we want to stay quiet and listen.
Our HOPE comes from knowing His Word, Believing in Faith and acknowledging He is in Control and will keep his people in the shelter of His wing. He has given us authority through His son Jesus to rule and reign with him in heavenly places. He has put the enemy Under our feet. (Romans 16:19,20 Be exellent in what is good, be innocent of evil. And the God of Peace will soon crush Satan underneath your feet) We put on our armor Ephesians 6. We know we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers and rulers in heavenly places. But, Jesus took the keys of sin and death from the devil after his death on the cross. Jesus said, I am he that liveth and was dead and behold I am alive forevermore. I have the keys of hell and of death. (Rev 1:18)
Our HOPE is knowing that our citizenship is not on Earth. If we belong to Christ, Heaven is our home and we eagerly await our reunion with Him. Phillipians 3:20 Our confidence in this comes from Faith in His Word.
If there was ever a time to read our Bibles it is now!
I could not get out of my mind what I believe God was saying. I kept hearing the phrase , THIS IS A SEASON OF COMPLETION OF PROMISES! Get ready for the promises that God has spoken over your life to begin to come full circle. One of my favorite life verse is
Isaiah 55:11 “so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.”
God can not lie. What He has said, He will do! Take hold of His promises and declare them over your life. When you come into agreement with His promises and declare them over your present situation it is activating your faith and aligning your prayers with God’s will.
Matthew 21:21 Jesus replied, “Truly I tell you, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and it will be done. 22 If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.”
We cannot even comprehend the amount of creative energy that is held in a single word that God speaks. God spoke and it was created! What words of God are you speaking over your life?
