Fire goes before him and consumes his foes on every side. | Psalm 97:3
As I was on a prayer walk recently, I felt prompted by the Lord to release His fire to burn up all that has been standing in the way of breakthrough. Immediately Psalm 97:3 came to me, as it says, “Fire goes before him and consumes his foes on every side.” I believe that the following word the Lord downloaded to my spirit is not only for myself, but for others as well:
“Beloved, be encouraged! When the enemy shall come in like a flood, I shall lift up a standard against him (Isaiah 59:19). Continue to strike the ground and speak My Word over your current situation. Begin to declare that My fire is going before you and burning up every trace of opposition that the enemy has tried to put in your path.”
Many have become so battle-weary because the fires of testing and opposition have seemingly been turned up seven times hotter than before. Even so, the Lord is now releasing His holy fire to burn off the dross and consume the works of the enemy. The very areas where the opposition has been the most fierce are the exact areas in which the Lord is bringing you the breakthrough!
I believe that many family relationships have been under attack. However, as you pray and release the Word of God over these relationships, He is going to cleanse and restore your bloodline. Even as it is written in Exodus 20:6, truly God shows love to a thousand generations of those who love Him. Begin to call forth those things in your life that are not as though they are (Romans 4:17); speak and prophesy over your loved ones, call forth and declare their destiny! Do not magnify the problem, rather thank God that He is working and bringing the solution. Truly, He is the Way-Maker!
I prophesy fresh strength over you in those areas where you have become weary. I speak forth fresh eyesight in the spirit and for new hope to spring up. Do not fear the enemy, for he is a defeated foe. Nothing by any means shall harm you. Take heart, for God is working, even now! He is your mighty Protector, a wall of fire around you!
And I will be to her a wall of fire all around, declares the LORD, and I will be the glory in her midst (Zechariah 2:5).
