For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God.

Ride Forth

Revelation 19:14-15 (AMP) And the armies of heaven, dressed in fine linen, [dazzling] white and clean, followed Him on white horses. From His mouth comes a sharp sword (His word) with which He may strike down the nations, and He will rule them with a rod of iron; and He will tread the wine press of the fierce wrath of God, the Almighty [in judgment of the rebellious world].

There is a call from heaven to don our linen robes, climb upon our horses, and ride into war with our King. But what does Kingdom warfare truly look like? In Scripture, we see a foreshadowing of Christ through the mighty warrior King David. David drew all of his strength from God alone. God preserved David in good times and in bad and ultimately empowered David to unify the Kingdom of Israel. David had perpetual victory in battle due to his strong connection with the King of Kings.

David set the model for Kingdom warfare for both the fighters that gathered to him and for believers today. He had a unique practice of inquiring of God before going into battle. When times were hardest, and even when his very allies were against him (1 Samuel 30:6), David would strengthen himself in God. It was from this place that God would direct David and proclaim the coming victory in battle. David would carefully act upon God’s directives with bold confidence; one could say he was clothed and armed in God’s mighty Word.

This is a pattern that we can follow today. When faced with trials, intercession must be our first response. In the secret place, we will find the Living Word of God and be able to cloth and equip ourselves with it. The Word is always “now,” with a life-giving perspective for every situation we face. But from the secret place, we must also be ready to act upon God’s Word when necessary. We must be prepared to get up on our horses and ride forth in our God-given commissions.

No matter what trial you are facing today, remember, that it is not by accident. The King of Kings has need of you. He is ready and willing to empower you to overcome. Therefore, run to the secret place, listen for His voice, and fearlessly act upon His instructions.

Psalm 16:7-8 (NKJV) I will bless the LORD who has given me counsel; My heart also instructs me in the night seasons. I have set the LORD always before me; Because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved.

Let Love Be Your Battle Cry

Psalm 105:19 (NKJV) Until the time that his word came to pass, The word of the Lord tested him.

Beloved one, remember that each time you take a step to grasp ahold of My promises for your life that you are also attempting to take territory for the Kingdom of Heaven. This means that you are stepping onto a battlefield, declaring war against the darkness which seeks to maintain its hold on your inheritance. Therefore, do not be surprised that the enemy will resist you and the manifestation of My Word in your life. He will try to convince you that My promises are not true or that they are not for you. He will accuse you in an attempt to make you forget that you are clothed in My righteousness and that My favor is upon your life.

Beloved one, during these times, if you look at your circumstances and look at yourself, you will feel tempted to believe that I am no longer for you or with you. Yet this is the very moment where your miracle is born. This is the place where you can choose to magnify My name—before your miracle manifests. This is the place where you must remember that I never send you into a battle that I cannot win through you. I have already overcome the evil one, therefore your victory is assured. Will you do your part by trusting Me and leaning only upon My Word? Will you allow the enemy’s resistance to test and purify you and bring forth My light within you? Will you let your love and adoration for Me be your battle cry?

A Sharper Image of Us

Vision 10/07/2017: I felt like I was standing in front of a wall looking right at a mirror. The Lord was standing right beside me and He adjusted the mirror as one would adjust the side mirror of a car. Instead of a reflection of myself and the Lord, I saw Mount Everest. Yet I truly felt this was an accurate reflection. “A sharper image of us,” the Lord said.

Over the summer, I’ve had multiple visions concerning walls, the writing or Word of God on the wall, and the eye of God drawn on the wall. All of them have had to do with God looking at me or speaking to me, and trying to make sense of what He is saying through His rhema words to me. It all has had to do with perception. How do we see ourselves and how do we see Him?

Running the Course of His Commandments

Psalm 119:32 (NKJV) I will run the course of Your commandments, For You shall enlarge my heart.

In a vision about a week or so ago, I felt I had come to a new place, something the Lord has called a “short stop”. There was a track and it was in a beautiful wooded area. I felt like this track belonged to a military training school. I knew I was an alumnus of this school, and an officer already. I had come back to this place to rest and prepare for my next assignment.

As time passed, the Lord revisited this vision with me. He reminded me of the above Scripture from Psalm 119. I also had a vision of Him running beside me on the track. “Keep tracking with Me….I shape you. Calm down. Leave these fears alone. Listen to Me and obey. I’m your friend. Where you go, I go. Where else could I be but with My friend? We do everything together.

During this time, I truly feel like I have been running around a track with the Lord. That track has been a place to rehearse His commandments in my mind and to gain a new level of obedience. There have been many words, dreams, and visions I have received over the last few years. I have not had the opportunity to sort through all of them; this has been important since He’s been telling me that some of the promises embedded within them are about to manifest. Also, the events and testing over the last few years have left me feeling a bit shaken. Truly, the Lord knew that I needed this season to heal, regroup, and regain confidence. I needed to weed out the fears that were left rattling around in my head and causing me to hesitate. I needed to be able to hear His voice much more clearly.
