Today, I hear the Lord saying, “Rise up in your authority! Many have become so battle weary by the constant drips that the enemy has brought against them that they have laid down their sword… some even without realizing it!”

The Lord is encouraging us today saying, “My bride! Pick up your sword! Open your mouth and declare my word even in the midst of opposition. I do not intend for you to be passive but to be bold like a lion! I am backing you up as you stand in my authority and rise up from a place of apathy and discouragement. My bride is not weak and cowardly, but rather, powerful and radiant! She is a confident overcomer! Even as you arise with a new boldness and pick up your sword, once again you will be a force to be reconned with! The enemy will be forced to retreat and give back what is rightfully yours! It is time to take new territory! It is time to see with new vision! There are more for you than against you! (2 Kings 6:16-18). I am anointing your eyes. I will cause you to have spiritual vision like Caleb.”

“Then Caleb silenced the people before Moses and said, “We should go up and take possession of the land, for we can certainly do it.” Numbers 13:30

“Arise my bride! Arise as the victorious and fearless warrior that I have called you to be! Pay no attention to the chatter and the ones who seek to silence and oppose you. I, Myself, will deal with them to fall on the very snare they intended for you! Look neither to the left or the right. Pay no attention to the distractions and smoke screens of the enemy. He is a defeated foe and he will, by no means, harm you!”

“Everything you have endured to this point has strengthened you for this moment! You have persevered many things, not realizing that it has been strengthening you along the way! Be brave and bold once again and pick up your sword! Your victory is at hand! Now, go in My strength and authority and possess it!”
