Blessed are those whose strength is in you, whose hearts are set on pilgrimage. As they pass through the Valley of Baka, they make it a place of springs; the autumn rains also cover it with pools. They go from strength to strength, till each appears before God in Zion. | Psalm 84:5-7
I hear the Lord saying, “Do not cast away your confidence; you are passing through this valley.” The enemy is seeking to blindside many through sudden distractions and onslaughts that have seemingly come out of nowhere. However, the Lord is working it all out for your good, and your victory is assured.
“The One who breaks open the way will go up before them;
they will break through the gate and go out.
Their King will pass through before them,
the Lord at their head” (Micah 2:13).
Do not focus on the ‘smoke and mirrors.’ The Lord is working out everything for your good, and these earthly trials are not as they appear. Stay rooted and grounded in the truth! This will be a season of breakthrough, acceleration, and increase, as you are advancing and moving forward.
Habakkuk 2:11 says, “I will stand at my watch and station myself on the ramparts; I will look to see what he will say to me.” Stay at your post of prayer, and refuse to budge from from what the Lord has spoken to you. Continue to declare God’s truths and promises aloud. This is a time to ‘war’ with your prophetic words and promises, just as the Lord declared in Jeremiah, “‘Is not my word like fire,’ declares the LORD, ‘and like a hammer that breaks a rock in pieces?’” (Jeremiah 23:29)
Shake off complacency and discouragement, and make war with your prophetic words! God is not slack concerning His promises. He is going to do everything He has said that He will do. Stay aligned with His truth, and be encouraged if you are experiencing momentary turbulence. The fog will lift, and you will pass through to the other side!
For the LORD your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory (Deuteronomy 20:4).
