Bringing a Message of Hope

[Beginning on 4/21, I asked my brother, Tim Sheets, to share some thoughts with us over the next few days, so we can pray with spiritual insight. We are going to talk about what God has to say to the Church and this nation right now.]

TIM SHEETS:

“Millions are right now being awakened to what the Deep State is doing and the agenda of hell being enacted in the world right now. I see that as a good thing. It’s an awakening for them to arise and do something about this. I also see that hell has been trying to back us off and wear us out. However, it’s having the opposite effect.

“I love the Message version of what Paul said about his confinement to jail. He said, ‘They didn’t shut me up. They gave me a pulpit.’ He goes on to say, ‘I’m headed for a flourishing finish.’ I believe that’s the attitude we’re supposed to have, and I believe that’s what’s going to happen. The world’s not going to shut us up. We are going to have a ‘flourishing finish’.

“The Ekklesia has been given a ‘pulpit’ right now to speak to the whole world. People are wanting to hear what God says. They’re wanting to hear a message of hope, and we have it! They want to hear it right now. We are hearing so many voices. It’s really horrendous to hear constantly what the scientists and the media are saying. However, we need to know and proclaim, ‘What does God say?’ What God is saying is, ‘I have not lost sight of My plans for you.’ He is also saying, ‘My Ekklesia is going to rise and give My answers.’”

“The god who rules this world has blinded the minds of unbelievers. They cannot see the light, which is the good news about our glorious Christ, who shows what God is like.” (2 Corinthians 4:4; CEV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  1. Intercede for those who are suffering, because they have no anchor for their soul. Our anchor is in Christ.

  2. Ask the Lord to be merciful and remove the blinders off the eyes of the unbelievers. Pray that they will be able to see Jesus, and hear the Holy Spirit calling them to repentance.

  3. Declare, “God is speaking to His people, ‘I have not lost sight of My plans for you. You are secure in Me and My plans for you are secure!”

  4. Say over the Ekklesia, “Rise up! Testify! Get answers from heaven and proclaim them wherever you can!”

A prayer you can pray:

Father, You love the lost! We, Your Church, must understand the times we are in. What the enemy means for evil, You are turning for good. Scientists and the media are scaring people with their constant negative reports. You are raising Your Church up to testify of life and hope to those currently blinded to Jesus. Jesus, You are the way, the truth and the life. No one can see You or come to You unless the Holy Spirit removes their blinders and draws them to You. As we proclaim, unveil their eyes, unstop their ears, and soften their hearts. Turn their fear to great joy. Let this dark time become their day of salvation—the greatest moment of their life! Let them have a testimony that they cannot help but share with everyone they know, too.

As You embolden us, fill our hearts to overflowing with Your words and testimonies. Let us not keep silent! Let us pray and proclaim. Let us intercede and take action! Let us see that You have not lost sight of the plans You have for us. What seems impossible is now more possible than ever! In fact, these will be our best days! Let us say, as the Apostle Paul did, when he was confined, “They didn’t shut me up. They gave me a pulpit. And, I will finish my course with a flourish!” We shout, “Grace,” to life’s greatest mountains around us, Lord Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

The Church has a message of hope that the world wants to hear right now!
