He made my mouth like a sharpened sword, in the shadow of his hand he hid me; he made me into a polished arrow and concealed me in his quiver. | Isaiah 49:2
It’s time to unleash your sword and war with your prophetic promises!
Things are rapidly accelerating, as God is shifting many of His people onto the fast track. Even now, the enemy is trying to counteract what the Lord is doing by bringing distractions, heaviness, chaos, and feelings of being overwhelmed into your life. However, this is all just a smokescreen! The shift has already begun, and it will continue to gain momentum as we rapidly approach the new year. Now is the time to rise above and war with the prophetic promises that have been called over your life. Just as it is written in Job, “You will decree a thing, and it will be established for you; and light will shine on your ways” (Job 22:28).
This is not a time to shrink back in fear or retreat back to the safety of what’s familiar, rather it’s a time to boldly enter into your promised land. Do not look at the giants that may seem to be in front of your path. Instead, dare to look beyond. Just like the prophet Elisha declared, there are more for you than against you (2 Kings 6:16). Truly the Lord is on your side!
As you continue to move forward in radical trust and surrender, the path will continue to broaden for you, illuminating brightly beneath your feet (Proverbs 4:18). Truly the Lord is bringing you into a wide and spacious place.
He brought me out to wide-open spaces; he pulled me out safe because he is pleased with me (Psalm 18:19 CEB).
Because of the warfare and confusion that the enemy has sought to bring against those the Lord is promoting, they haven’t even realized the mighty breakthrough that’s already started. Focus not on what the enemy is trying to stir up, but rather turn your eyes on Jesus. He is rapidly accelerating you, bringing you into a shift and new season of promotion and advancement. Expect increase, favor, and doors that had been previously shut to now fling open. “It’s your time and your season,” declares the Lord!
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).
