Good morning friends! It’s a great year to be alive and participate with the plans and purposes of God for our nation! 2020 is the number for perfect vision, and I believe we will see an outpouring of dreams and visions releasing clarity of God’s plans and purposes! Take note of your dreams and seek God for interpretation. The Bible is full of people having dreams as a form of communication.
Joel 2:28 “And afterward, I will pour out My Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions. ”
God has been opening the eyes of His church, making aware the magnitude of demonic attack. The world is trying to dictate their agenda as being God’s, and we must be wise and discerning. As followers of Christ Jesus, we must not shrink back or allow compromise of His word to become a part of our assemblies. The Word of God, coupled with the Spirit of God, will bring new power into our churches with greater victories, bringing glory unto the Lord.
Isaiah 54:17 “No weapon forged against you will prevail.“
Intercessory prayer in the church is no longer an option but a necessity. The power of prayer is our greatest weapon against the destroyer. The army of the Lord is arising and will take back what the enemy has stolen. I believe we shall see tables turned this year as the Lord reveals His truth and justice. Lots of warfare took place in 2019 and continues; however, I decree this year God’s army will regain stolen ground and conquer new ground.
Phil. 4:6 “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”
God is positioning His people in all spheres of society. We have the understanding that places of leadership and influence need godly men and women. The act of leading a quiet life while going to church is great, but if we are not reaching out to the world, it leaves opportunities for enemy takeover. If we are willing to surrender our lives to Him and allow Him to position us, God’s kingdom will advance, releasing salvation, healing and freedom.
Prov. 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge , and He will make your paths straight.
Wisdom is a central theme this year. Mankind needs the wisdom of God to bring solutions to the chaos rampant in our world today. Rather than jumping into battle with swords ready to slay dragons, we need to posture ourselves to hear and listen. Listening prayer, hearing God’s plan, will give us the strategies to proceed in a godly manner. We must be intentional to listen and hear from God. The noise in the world is loud; however, I have hope that God’s people prevail because we are hearing His voice and learning how to respond to the enemy’s tactics.
Proverbs 2:6 “For the Lord gives wisdom, and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. “
God is love. The posture of our heart must be one of love, not revenge. Praying for the lost, for those caught in the devil’s net, is what God calls us to do. If the entire Christian community released judgment and anger, no one would encounter the transforming love of the Father. We see God’s redemption for the thief on the cross. We see it all through scripture, God bringing restoration out of pain and woundedness. No one is beyond reach. Receiving God’s love brings salvation, healing and freedom. From this place of receiving, we love others with the love of Christ.
John 15:12 “My command is this: love each other as I have loved you.”
I believe we will see the glory of the Lord arising amidst the darkness this year, with power and love demonstrated on unprecedented levels. The enemy thinks he has the upper hand, but a mighty harvest is already in the beginning stages! God is opening our eyes and calling us into position to show the world the love and power of His Son, Jesus Christ. Let us not lose hope for our Almighty God is able to change a nation in a day!
Isaiah 60:1-3 “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and His glory appears over you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn. “
