In a world where uncertainty seems to be the new norm, it’s crystal clear that we’ll always need the Lord. These times we’re living in? They might just be the most important times to lean on Him. For us believers, there’s no debating it – staying rooted in God’s Word is a must. Without prayer, His incredible power, and His sweet presence, we’re absolutely lost without Him! As the spiritual realm heats up, there’s an urgent season unfolding that all believers need to recognize. Without a shadow of a doubt: a time to fight is here!
Because of the time that we are in, the Lord strongly desires to encourage many to stay in the fight. May you be strengthened within this message and equipped with tools to help you in this season for such a time as this! In these current times, the Lord wants to provide His Children much-needed encouragement for those in the midst of the battle.
Stay in the fight!
Don’t Get Distracted
Now more than ever, we can’t afford to miss the Father’s direction and instruction!
In the midst of our daily lives, there’s a ceaseless battle for our attention, with so many outside forces battling for control of our minds. This includes worry, fear, anxiety, stress, doubt, and even unbelief, which all attempt to sway our thoughts. At the same time, emotions like bitterness, unforgiveness, and resentment continually nibble away at our hearts. The enemy sets out many relentless distractions for our attention and seeks to occupy our thoughts, dominate our minds, and to steer us far away from what keeps us close to the Father. We depend on Him entirely, recognizing our vulnerability in His presence. The Word tells us that we all need Him as the light to our path. (Psalm 119:105)
We must yearn for heavenly direction,
His unwavering guidance,
We must long for His wisdom,
And seek strategies that can only come from Heaven!
Don’t let the distractions of darkness intimidate you from the fight!
Call on Him
“Seek the LORD while he may be found; call on him while he is near. Let the wicked forsake their ways and the unrighteous their thoughts. Let them turn to the LORD, and he will have mercy on them, and to our God, for he will freely pardon.” – Isaiah 55:6-7
The Lord is our Holy deliverer who is able to breathe and move upon our circumstances and the issues that we are wrestling with in our lives. It is the Lord JehovahGibbor Himself who is able to go in and destroy the demonic attacks and wicked plans, bringing a halt and stop to demonic agendas that have been set for our lives.
Call on Him while He is near!
We must all be so very grateful for the fact that He is a God that we can still call upon—what a beautiful privilege it is to be a servant of the One and ONLY Living God! There’s no other as victorious as He! The same God who miraculously parted the Red Sea to deliver the Israelites is able to deliver you! Be encouraged that no matter the challenges you face, you must stand firm and be assured that His Holy well of saving grace never runs out!
Let the Lord be your refuge in the midst of your storm!
In a time where so many people can’t seem to find rest in this fallen world, the Lord provides refuge and peace for His Children that no enemy could ever overtake!
Stand Firm in Faith
“Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.” – 1 Corinthians 15:58
Be encouraged that God will give you the grace and supernatural strength to stand. God will continue to give you the tenacity, grace, and strength you need to endure and to fight the good fight of faith—if only you stand firm.
Stay on post!
Stay in position!
Stay postured up!
Stay armored up!
Stay in a place where you are hearing from Heaven!
Stay in a place where you are receiving instructions from the Lord!
Stay in a place where you are staying pure and holy before Him!
Use Your Spiritual Weapons
There are 10 spiritual tools and strategies to help you win spiritual battles:
Word of God
Armor of God
Praying in the Spirit
Praise and Worship
Presence of the Lord
Blood of Jesus
Fire of God
Word of God
Also known as the Sword of the Spirit, the Word of God is a weapon. The Word of God is a weapon that can be used to destroy the works of darkness. DoNOT put down your sword in this season! Be steadfast.
“For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” (Hebrews 4:12)
Prayer & Fasting
Prayer in the spirit births things in the spirit realm. It also guards our heart and allows us to accomplish the will of God.
“And he said to them, “This kind cannot be driven out by anything but prayer.” (Mark 9:29)
The Fire of God
The fire and Spirit of the Lord is a weapon. You may need the refreshing fire and power of God for your inner man to be fortified and strengthened.
“…for our God is a consuming fire.” (Hebrew 12:29)
“And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead the way, and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so as to go by day and night.” (Exodus 13:21)
“I baptize you with water for repentance, but he who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.” (Matthew 3:11)
“When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.” (Acts 2:1-4)
It Ends With You!
Do you know what you’re up against??
As believers, we can no longer afford to remain blind and oblivious to what we are fighting up against. Simply put, it is war time and you have to know what you are contending with. Many of us have been fighting against things in our bloodline and God has been showing and giving us glimpses so that we can cast those things down, bring them before the Courts and before the altar, and repent so they will be burned up.
LET IT STOP WITH YOU!
The battles you contend with may have started with your family and your bloodline, but let it end with you in Jesus name! It’s time to pay attention! God has been clearly showing many of His people the demonic plans and agendas. It’s time to close the doors and the breaches that give the enemy legal right in this battle to wreak havoc in your life. The Lord has enabled you to be a fiery warrior as you go into the spirit realm and burn up some of those things! The Lord is able to send His holy angels on assignment against Every single demonic plan, agenda, and sacrifice where things from the demonic realm have been written and plotted out. The high-ranking angels will be commissioned to go in and rip up the contracts by the blood of Jesus!
Yes …the blood of Jesus STILL works!
Decree and declare the weapons and armor that God has given you. Allow the weapons that are on the inside of you that have been embedded in you to rise up. No matter the circumstances, pick up your sword and strike again in faith!
I pray for the strength of your spirit and your inner man in this season. May you be refreshed in the spirit realm and your armor cleansed and made anew. God is equipping you for the things that you need in this season for such a time as this. May you understand the season that you are in and prepare and operate accordingly. There are some things that will be overturned in the Courts of Heaven concerning you. Rejoice and take the territory. May you renounce every ounce of fear and go on in the strength of the Lord. Don’t give up, cave in, or quit. May you refuse to put your sword down in this season! You WILL stay in the fight in Jesus name!
It’s time that we as believers grow in understanding of how to navigate the level of warfare that is happening. Today’s message is the Word of the Lord as He wants you to know that He is concerned about you and all that you are contending with. May you be strengthened in the Lord today and may you be armored up.
Stay in the Word!
Stay in the face of the Lord like never before!
Stay in the fight!
And YOU WILL WIN this fight—in the matchless name of Jesus!
