Good Morning Gorgeous,
It’s a brand new day. It’s a fresh beginning. A new dawn to move in the earth like people of promise.
People who have been chosen, handcrafted, purposed for destiny, and set in the earth for such a time as this.
You are no accident. Your placement in history is very intentional by an all knowing, all loving God who desires to work in you and through you to accomplish heaven’s agenda.
You are an appointed ambassador who speaks for heaven.
You speak on behalf of the King.
You are powerful and graced with the ability to partner with heaven and bring its order down.
Friends, when a Holy Spirit filled believer speaks, heaven moves.
You have an arsenal of weapons to battle in a spiritual realm and change the atmosphere around you from stormy winds to calm peace.
You have the ability to declare and speak heaven’s truth straight into the lies that make us tremble.
And there are alot of lies that are making us tremble right now.
The illness sweeping the globe is real. The pain and loss is real. The way people are out of work is real. The disruption to many of the things that we held to be immovable is real. For example who ever saw the closing of school for an extended amount of time as a possibility? Schools, Sporting events, restaurants, salons, all temporarily closed.
The church also appears to be closed, but the church is not a building. Yes, we gather there with other believers, but the church is the bride of Christ. The church is the body of believers across the whole world who profess Jesus Christ as the son of God, who died for our sins, and then defeated death itself by raising from the dead three days later.
The Lord Himself left His seat in heaven and came to earth as a man willingly as part of a master plan to redeem mankind and bring us back into relationship with Him. He came to restore ALL that was lost when Adam the first man sinned in the garden. By one human man, all of mankind was subjected to the pain and agony of death, and by one divine man who was both fully God and fully man, all of mankind is invited into victory against sin and death!
By sin we were condemned to death, but by the extreme love and willing sacrifice of our Lord, we are resurrected to life.
First, we are resurrected spiritually when we believe in our hearts that Jesus Christ is the son of God, who died for our sins, and was resurrected to life. When we believe that and repent of our sins, we are a brand new creation in Christ Jesus.
We are NO longer subject to the condemnation of sin, but instead we are victorious over everything warring against our soul. We have access to heaven now and also salvation for all of eternity.
The access to heaven now is VERY important in a time like this. We are not sitting ducks waiting for our ticket to eternity!! We are powerful, equipped warriors for the Kingdom. We have access to heaven’s order, and we are responsible to bring it down to earth to battle against evil.
Friends, when you speak, heaven’s angels are sent out. Power comes to your aide. Your words in prayer have the power to bring down strongholds, to set people free, to release healing, and to accomplish the will of God in the earth.
Don’t for one moment believe that you are powerless during this virus. If the enemy of our souls can get us to believe that we are helpless victims of the coronavirus, he will immobilize a fully equipped, well trained army who has the whole power of Heaven and God backing them.
Let’s not freeze in fear.
Let’s not be so quick to give in to the chaos surrounding us.
Let’s not be so fast to admit defeat.
We have the Lord of ALL on our side. We are HIS soldiers. His people. His trained men and women. We speak the language of heaven and it’s the most powerful language in the whole world: LOVE.
It’s a universal language, understood by all nations.
We need to stand tall, speak the immovable, infallible Word of God every day straight into the face of this darkness.
Be ready to encourage your fellow believers who are having a rough day.
Be ready to share your faith with someone who has never been introduced to Jesus.
People are searching right now. And Jesus is the answer to every single question. He is the way. The truth. And the life. No one gets to the Father except through Him.
If that is deep in our belief system, we should be ready to introduce everyone we meet to Him.
How do we get ready? Arise and talk to Jesus. Get into the scriptures. Play worship music while you are at home.
When you draw near to God, He is faithful to draw near to you!
And after that, He will provide you with Heavenly assignments AND He will even equip you with the words to say to your friends, family, neighbors, and anyone else He puts in your path.
Friends YOU carry the answer to what the whole world needs: Jesus.
Dear Heavenly Father,
The days are dark. Your light is brighter. Speak into us and strengthen us so that we are ready to speak the language of heaven to a hurting world. Give us words to speak and wisdom when to be silent and just listen. Lord, equip your people with bold courage to share Jesus in every encounter we have! In Jesus’s name, Amen.
