Lead the Charge

“Anointed for War: Rallied Warriors” – by Meghan Williams, Dyed4you Art

My vessel, you have been anointed for war. Even more, I have called you to lead others into battle. You know well that the weapons you wield are mighty in Me and not of this earth. I have anointed you with breakthrough power and might by My Spirit. Long-standing hinderances to the manifestation of My Kingdom will crumble when you lift up My Word as a banner. Through Me, you will overcome.

Through your wilderness training ground, you have been made ready for this day. A single mighty one in Me who clings to My Word is stronger than a military battalion. Therefore, know that as you build up and embolden others in the faith, the combined might of My Body will become the strongest force on earth. Resist the urge to focus on your weaknesses and shortcomings. Doing so will only cause you to lose sight of the vision I have placed in you. Instead, trust in My judgment. I have chosen you, and I have chosen well. Remember, I do not choose leaders based on their outward appearance or natural capabilities, instead, I look at the heart.

As your Commander, when I give you a military goal, rejoice for the battle has already been won! Keep your eyes fixed on Me and continue to walk in all that I have taught you. What you learned of My Word in the small battles will have tremendous power when applied to larger battles. Even more, you will act as a rallying point for others as they see how easily you are able to move through strongholds when clothed with My might. You know where your power comes from and it comes as you rest in Me and stand upon My Word.

Therefore, I say, lead My charge. Follow in My footsteps. Let your feet be as My feet and your hands be as My hands and let us operate as one to establish the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth. Through you, I will forge new pathways for young warriors to follow in, and we will take new territory in the promised inheritance of My people. Beloved, rise to this new challenge with a confidence that is well rooted in Me. Allow this new aspect of your calling to be the vehicle that will cultivate a deeper connection between you and I.

Deuteronomy 20:1-4 (VOICE) Moses: This is how you should act during wartime: When you go to battle against your enemies, if you see their army is larger than yours and they have horses and chariots, don’t be afraid of them! The Eternal your God is with you—the same God who defeated Pharaoh and brought you out of Egypt. As you are approaching the battlefield, your priest will come over to you and address you: “Listen, Israel! Today you’re going to fight a battle against your enemies. Don’t be intimidated by them! Don’t be afraid! Don’t run away! Don’t let them terrify you! The Eternal, your True God, has come out here with you, and He’ll fight for you against your enemies and save you.”

2 Corinthians 10:4-6 (ESV) For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ, being ready to punish every disobedience, when your obedience is complete.

Dive Deep

“Currents of His Love {Water}” – by Meghan Williams, Dyed4you Art

Jeremiah 1:5 (AMPC) Before I formed you in the womb I knew [and] approved of you [as My chosen instrument], and before you were born I separated and set you apart, consecrating you; [and] I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.

Beloved, I created you that I might know you. I brought you forth that you might explore the depths of who I am. I am love and it is My good pleasure that you would live forever immersed in Me. My love is endless and fathomless, far deeper than the oceans. I am worth knowing, and I take great joy when you pursue Me with all of your being.

In your encounters with Me, you will sense the depths of My nature, a world without end that beckons you to dive deeper and deeper. When you sense these depths, resist the urge to give into the fear of losing yourself in Me. Be a bold explorer of My heart, knowing that as you lose yourself in the waves of My love you will truly find yourself there. You will inevitably soak in more and more of My nature until you resonate with the sound of My voice. Dive deep, beloved, and let yourself be overwhelmed. In your pursuit of Me, allow yourself to be transformed into an instrument of My Love.

Let My Voice Roar Through You

Matthew 10:27 (NKJV) Whatever I tell you in the dark, speak in the light; and what you hear in the ear, preach on the housetops.

Beloved, you are one who continually sits at My feet. You eat from My hand and are eager to soak in every word that I say. As a result, you know My voice. Even more, your persistence in maintaining intimacy with Me means that you know My heart. The result of your intimacy and choice to seek Me above all else means that My voice now bubbles up from within you continually. I have rubbed off on you and there is no turning back, My love!

When I call you to step forward and speak on My behalf, do not be surprised when you are met by a storm of contrary voices. As you know, a servant is not greater than his master. If the world spoke lies against Me and tried to silence Me, then do not be surprised or alarmed that the world desires to do the same to you. Whether this storm of voices are echoes from your past or part of your present, resist the urge to come into agreement with them. For I have not called you to back down. Instead, make an effort to still yourself and find My voice again. You will know it because it roars above the rest! I speak in love and truth and faithfully declare that you are ever the apple of My eye.

Remember that your voice carries weight, beloved—on heaven and on earth. Like a musical instrument that has been shaped to bring forth a unique sound, you have been shaped and refined to speak with authority, to bring forth fresh revelation of My Word, and to release My will into the earth. I have called you by name and it is My will to see you prosper in your role as a king and priest—as My most beloved Bride who stands by My side. Resist the urge to allow fear, shame, or guilt to cause you to hold back from walking in your calling and speaking on My behalf. These things belong to the old man that was crucified, and I have raised you to newness of life. If you remain silent, then My unique message and fresh revelation through you will remain unheard. Therefore, speak the words you hear from My heart, and do not be afraid. Let My voice roar through you.

Matthew 16:19 (NKJV) And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.

Describing the Impossible

Isaiah 53:1 (NKJV) Who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed?

Recently, I had a powerful experience with the Lord. I was having breakfast and speaking with Him. I must have said something quite stirring, I don’t remember what, but I suddenly perceived legions of angels about me. They were drawing in closer to me and I knew it was because of something I said; I was blessing the Lord in my thoughts. The words “Sons of Thunder” came to me by the Spirit. And wow, did I suddenly feel like a lightning rod!

Either way, I continued speaking with the Lord. At one point He responded to me with just two or three words. It was a word pun but so full of meaning. For the last several years, the Lord has been intensely building a lexicon within me and an interesting understanding of the nature of language. It hasn’t just been my fascination with Hebrew but patterns within languages and speech, in general, that has made His word puns even more complex; it’s just like having a large amount of data compressed into a small file. So, to explain what the Lord meant at that moment and the revelation He brought with those few words would take me pages to write!

I cannot even tell you what it was that He said and the revelation He brought because what happened next completely shattered my train of thought. In that moment I was so in awe of how the Word of God Himself has, well, a way with words. It is that beyond razor-sharp precision of the Sword of the Spirit, and it is astounding! Just these few words caused me to begin adoring Him. In my mind, I was just trying to describe His beauty and how in love I am with this one called to be our Bridegroom, the Word of God.

Suddenly, I had the most intense sensation. I can only describe what seemed to be electricity upon my tongue. It wasn’t a small spark at all! I also felt as though power was building up in the middle of my forehead. The more I tried to describe the Lord, the more that this pressure grew. At the same time, a vision came to my mind. I was in a dark place, save for flashes of lightning and the Lord Himself who was outlined by lightning upon His form. He was seated on a throne at the what seemed to be the top of a mountain summit. He got up and began walking down the steps toward me. With every step, that pressure built up in my head and I felt that, if I finally found the words to describe Him, that power would burst through my head! Was I going to die?
