A Re-commissioning

Jesus said, “My family is going to be My governing body on planet Earth, just like I intended in the book of Genesis. They’re going to bind for Me. They’re going to loose for Me. I’m going to give them the keys to the Kingdom of Heaven and they’re going to govern for Me as My Ekklesia.” At the ends of the gospels of Mark and Matthew, He formalized this again as He did in Genesis. He re-commissioned us. God wasn’t starting over, He was restoring things back to the Plan. In Mark’s gospel, He said, “Go tell people that they can be a part of My family again.” In Matthew’s, He doesn’t say, “Go get them saved.” He says, “Go disciple nations.”

“I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven.” (Matthew 16:19; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  1. Thank Him for His plan that is eternal and which He did not throw aside at the Fall of man.

  2. Thank Him for His getting us back on track and welcoming us to assist Him in the earth to fulfill that plan.

  3. Thank Him for the shifting of things in America right now, ignoring the anger, the confusion, and the attempts of those angry ones to try to stop what He is doing.

  4. Tell Him you are available to work with Him to pray for and restore America to His plan, regardless of the turmoil all around us.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, I thank You for the change that You have begun in this nation. I thank You for Your beginning of shifting the government and the courts. I thank You that President Trump is listening to conservative constitutionalists and Believers who are advising him. I thank You for the change that has begun. We’re not naive enough to think this nation has turned. We see the warfare that is now taking place. We see the anger. We see those who have entrenched themselves in this nation as if they own it. We see their distortion of the truth. We see the character assassinations taking place. We see the attempt to steal from us the ability to change this nation. We position ourselves before You, Lord, and ask You to teach us how to pray for the United States in these tumultuous days. Thank You, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

God has placed the keys of His Kingdom in our hands and in our mouths and we ought to be using them to restore and advance His plans!
