The Lord Will Fight For You (Sunday, March 17, 2013)
The Lord opened a conversation with me with this lovely promise. The Scripture appears in various places in the Bible. I liked Exodus 14:14 for the context of being in a place of discomfort and looking unto Jesus for the rescue of His rest.
One of our praise songs Sunday was “How Great Is Our God” by Chris Tomlin. The atmosphere was really primed for the release of my morning conversation with Lord to my eternal family.
He wraps Himself in Light and darkness tries to hide. Don’t you want darkness to flee from you? Don’t you want it to tremble at the sound of your voice? The way you know, dear heart. Get in Jesus; He’s our protection. Get the Holy Spirit in you; He’ll bring back the words of Jesus to your remembrance–and put the enemy trembling to flight.
“I believe, Lord, help my unbelief” (Matthew 9:24). Jesus gave us this example to prove that our God fights for us. Here are some other instances of His love-powered prowess on our behalf:
He rose with all power (Revelation 1:18)
He makes the crooked ways straight (Isaiah 42:16)
No weapon formed against you shall prosper (Isaiah 54:17)
He has the keys of Death and Hades (Revelation 1:18)
He gave us the keys to the Kingdom (Matthew 16:19)
He opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens (Revelation 3:7). I loved this especially in relation to our recently concluded Fast From Wrong Thinking and Confessing.
Here are the other Scriptures:
Intercessory Prayer (Saturday, February 11, 2012)
For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
There are two parts to this Word. First, your heart belongs to God. Your heart belongs in Heaven with the treasure of faith it has stored up in Jesus Christ.
Second, your soul (your mind, your will, and your emotions) doesn’t have to overtake you. It doesn’t belong on the throne of your three-fold nature of spirit, soul and body. It is necessary, needful and good that the Word should accomplish this deep sanctifying inner surgery. The cleansing goes all the way down into your joints (because each joints supplies) and marrow (where the DNA of God yet resides in you)! The cleansing is side-by-side, five-by-five, 24-7-365 wide, discerning the thoughts and intents of the heart so that you can open to, believe and receive God; open to, believe and receive the plans He has for your future; open to, believe and receive the salvation for your every day, and open to, believe and receive the power of the Holy Spirit to live it out now, by faith, even in the midst of a perverse and wicked generation. To break the curses the enemy is speaking over them to kill, steal and destroy them as he (the Enemy) is destroyed. To break the strongholds of wickedness and bondage. To open the eyes of the blind so that they can see the holy grace, mercy and forgiveness of the only wise God. To Him be glory forever. Amen.
There are three main points to the “Forever Victorious” teaching:
- Knowing God the way He wants to be known (Hosea 2:19-20)
- Entering into His supply cycle (Genesis 26:12-13, Hosea 2:21-23, and 1 Timothy 2:1-2)
- Living out of your spirit (John 16:13)
I believe God sent this word to encourage His children. He is not waiting for a misstep to send wrath upon us. He sent His only begotten Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, into the world for that mission (to pay for our sins that did indeed warrant punishment) so that we would be free to know our heavenly Father in love.
It is not by coincidence that God speaks about abundant prosperity at the very time the world shouts limits, lack, and absence. Yet we serve The King whose Kingdom is without end! Should His royal children suffer pockets with holes in them and be unable to complete the mission He has set for us? No, of course not. But it may look that way if you have not yet learned to take up the keys of heaven. (Hint: if the mountain is covering your supply, command it to move! If time permits and the Spirit of God so moves on Mark 11:23, this will be our activation).
Look into the word and you will find His abundant supply every where. Here are a few Scriptures to get you started on this bountiful journey: 2 Peter 1:5-9, Jude 2, 3 John 1:2, Galatians 5:22-25, John 14:6, Ephesians 6:14, Philippians 4:8;19, Luke 12:32, Proverbs 13:22, and Matthew 7:7-8;11.
This last point is indescribably wonderful. It is “… the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1). It is undeniably most comforting to the young Believer and entirely satisfying to the seasoned Believer. It is fruit, more fruit, and much fruit! (John 15:1-5). Living out of your spirit immediately connects you to the Supernatural. Here it is vital that you allow the Holy Spirit the total right to lead you and “guide you into all truth … and show you things to come” (John 16:13) for that is His express mission. When you are walking together in this lane, life truly becomes amazing! You can actually see “the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living” (Psalm 27:13). What’s more, you get to participate in it. Raise your praise!
