Praise be to the LORD my Rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle. | Psalm 144:1
“Beloved, do not be dismayed by the swirling that you feel, nor by the intensity of the battle. Even as the children of Israel approached the Promised Land, many turned around out of their fear of the giants that were in their land (Numbers 13). You, too, may feel like there are giants closing in on you in this season, trying to take away the promises I have given you. The reality is this: though it may feel like you are surrounded, you are being surrounded by Me.
“In this season, I am teaching and equipping you to ascend to a higher place in Me. Truly, you will come up high above the warfare taking place, knowing full well your authority as a child of the Most High, seated in heavenly places with Me (Ephesians 2:6). I have given you power to overcome the enemy, and nothing—again I say, nothing—by any means shall harm you (Luke 10:19). Even in the midst of the shaking and turbulence you feel, I will use it to launch you forward into My purpose. I am covering you under the shadow of My wings, under which you shall find refuge (Psalm 91:4).
“Do not doubt that which I have spoken over you. Truly, you are victorious in Me! This is your time and your season to take the land. Now is the time to press into Me even more in worship, prayer, and dance. Give Me your extravagant worship, and watch as you ascend to a high place in Me. You shall overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of your testimony (Revelation 12:11),” says the Lord.
