It is God's joy in this hour to use those who appear weak and limited in order to annihilate the proud and the haughty. Do not underestimate the power of heaven. Do not overestimate the enemy. Do not underestimate the God of all glory that resides in YOU!
Many believers are being called onto the frontlines to SPEAK UP and TAKE A STAND against the voices that seek to drown out the victory that is rightfully ours. The Lord is calling upon the David's of this hour to rise up with courage and boldness and speak to the giants that have come against our faith, our identity and our inheritance. Many of these modern-day David's are women and children. Some are disillusioned "has-beens" whom the Lord is calling back into active service. Others are "nobody's" from man's perspective.
However, it is not a matter of AGE, POSITION or REPUTATION. It is a matter of DIVINE CALLING and preparation by Heaven in the hidden place that have qualified these who are being used in this hour to defeat strongholds and principalities. It is time to call out these David's and recognize the favor of God on them to release and decree their FAITH and WORD OF HOPE to the nation. Though the Goliath's of this hour are constantly taunting and threatening this nation through fear and intimidation, the battle can be quickly turned by the obedience of just one David.
Appealing to the King
Just as David's brothers tried to silence his voice through fear, intimidation and empty threats, those who have been called in this hour must take courage and APPEAL TO THE KING. It is our King of Glory who will release these warriors of valor, not because of man's commendation, but because of their FAITH and BOLDNESS. It is those who have already proven faithful in the flock, caring for sheep, worshiping the Lord and defending the weak that will rise up and be mantled with greater authority to defeat greater giants in the land.
These assignments will not be coordinated or planned by any human, but will be divinely orchestrated in KAIROS TIME. Though the battles have been waging for a long time, it is HEAVENS TIME that will determine the showdown and final blow to the enemy's threats.
It will require a sensitive ear to hear the Father's invitation to the battlefield. It will require an obedient heart to look past the limitations and seeming weaknesses of the flesh. It will require a Kingdom perspective to overlook distractions and comparisons that would seek to disqualify participation. It will require boldness and determination to step out in faith.
Carry and Release
To the David's of this hour the Lord would say,
"Stop listening to your accusers! Don't listen to the voices that tell you you're too young, too old, not trained, not ready! I am the One who has called you and I am the One who will anoint you! I have prepared you for this hour and I will back you up! GO and declare My Kingdom. Stand before the giant and let your voice be heard. I will speak through you and will shatter the lies with my truth and my presence. Be a CARRIER of my glory and RELEASE your faith and your prayers to take down the giants."
It was not David's stone that killed Goliath, but his SWORD (I Samuel 17:51).
The prayers released in faith can take the enemy to the ground, but it is the Word of the Lord that will overcome and defeat the enemy.
Though the battle may be turned through our prayers, it is the WORD OF OUR TESTIMONY that will establish the rightful heir.
"David said to the Philistine, 'You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the LORD Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. This day the LORD will hand you over to me, and I'll strike you down and cut off your head. Today I will give the carcasses of the Philistine army to the birds of the air and the beasts of the earth, and the whole world will know that there is a God in Israel. All those gathered here will know that it is not by sword or spear that the LORD saves; for the battle is the LORD's, and he will give all of you into our hands.'" (1 Samuel 17:45-47)
Rise up, David! Rise up and open your mouth, for you are the rightful heir in this land. Open your mouth and do not be silent. Let the cries of Heaven come through you to a people of desperation, fear and unbelief. Do not disqualify yourself but follow Heaven's lead and stand before the Giants. Release your prayers and then testify to My goodness and My presence in this land. Let the world know that I am the God who saves; I am the God who delivers and I am the God of VICTORY.
It is God's joy in this hour to use those who appear weak and limited in order to annihilate the proud and the haughty. Do not underestimate the power of Heaven. Do not overestimate the enemy. Do not underestimate the God of all glory that resides in YOU!
