Worship warfare is a very delicate subject for the battle wages and is strong against us when we are pressing in to worship the King! The enemy wants us to keep our eyes on the battle and because it is so strong it feels like we are not making headway even into His presence. Yes, you are being wrapped up in the fight, but the battle is not ours but it is the Lord's. We must keep our eyes on Him and not the battle and worship Him! He is our Captain and He leads us through the war zone as we take the land! As a worship intercessor, I have been greatly hindered for many years pressing in to take the land. I remember once in the middle of worship wrapped in the war surrounding it that I could not break through even to worship the Lord.
Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known(1 Corinthians 13:12 NIV). I have often said, "Share your dreams with me, and I will not only tell you who you are now, but who you are destined to become." Similar to the powers of our imagination, dreaming is a universal human phenomenon uniting people across barriers of age, gender, racial background, social differences, and historical circumstances. Dreams are our inner man at work revealing our nature to us. "I never dream!" "I never remember my dreams!" These are two very common fallacies that people assume.
I remember the early years of being born again. I was a Christian my whole life but didn't become born again till my early twenties. In those early years people in the church and just many Christians in general were so discouraging and critical. But God wasn't like them. God was always encouraging and for you. If it wasn't for God being so encouraging and not like them I probably wouldn't have lasted in Christianity. If God was anything like other Christians acted I wouldn't have wanted anything to do with Him.
The very first thing I did was shatter a glass on the bathroom floor Saturday morning. I'm talking pre-coffee, pre-pants, pre-everything. Glass everywhere. For a millisecond I almost got mad, but I caught myself. Why? Because I had a major shift in perspective the night before that helped me avoid the "I'm such an idiot and I wonder why Lacie set this booby trap" thought. Have you heard of a guy named Rob Bell? He's an author, speaker, previous pastor; most famous, at least in my sphere, for writing Velvet Elvis and the "controversial" Love Wins. He is undeniably one of the best communicators I've listened to, regardless of your opinions of his theology.
The Lord showed me something interesting today. There are several men and women in the bible who hid from Gods calling. There's a prophet in the Old Testament named Jonah. The Lord told Jonah to go to the city of Nineveh to prophesy against it because of their great wickedness. Jonah refused to go and went from the presence of the Lord on his own way. He got on a ship in Jaffa that was going to Tarshish, which geographically is in the opposite direction of where the Lord told him to go. As he walked out of Gods will, he not only put his own life in jeopardy, but also the men in the boat as well as the people in Nineveh.
Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. Colossians 3:2 NIV It is time to renew your mind through the Holy Spirit and not think logically. The Lord is moving beyond your natural thoughts, and your solution is already being released from Heaven. It will be important to come into agreement with the plans and thoughts of the Lord that are higher than our own. Watch as the Lord is sending wisdom and instructions from Heaven. The Spirit of Wisdom is being released, and it will allow you to come into alignment with the Lord's plans that are being opened starting this month. There are gold mines that will be opened as you receive the Spirit of Wisdom.
When bees flit from flower to flower the nectar sticks to their legs. The phrase "bee's knees" means sweet and good, because the knees of the bee are where all the sweet, good stuff is collected. But I have said to you, "You shall inherit their land, and I will give it to you to possess, a land flowing with milk and honey." I am the Lord your God, who has separated you from the peoples. (Leviticus 20:24)
It's your time for an accelerated breakthrough and a season of suddenlies! 2019 is going to be a time of accelerated breakthrough! I decree over you, today, that there is going to be breakthrough upon breakthrough upon breakthrough, in Jesus' name. It will be a time of acceleration. Things are going to move faster and faster. Get ready for God to move suddenly! This is going to be a season of many suddenlies. Suddenly healing will be upon you. Suddenly your breakthrough will happen. Suddenly that financial provision and miracle will come through. Suddenly a new door will open for you. Suddenly a divine connection will take place (Mal. 3:1, Acts 2:2, Acts 16:26).
I got an unusual word from the Lord today. Every day I ask to hear from Him, and especially to share with others, as a work of my ministry to Him. First I hear for me, and then it is to others. But I have never had a word like this one, and I've been at this a while. Today I heard the Lord say that people are repenting to the wrong thing! They are willing to repent and change, but they are going back to a past or person or situation that will not remedy. I have had situations over my own life where I thought, "This really could go better." When you feel that way, you know you need to get closer to God again. I pray and I go back to the times and mindsets where I felt His pleasure. I've been reading the OT prophet books lately and I listen for His quickening. We have to learn truth in the different ways He presents it.
I am the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. Revelation 1:8 I am the Alpha and Omega, the first and the last. Revelation 1:11 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. Revelation 21:5-7 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Revelation 22:13
