The Next Phase of Battle

“We are living in an age in which the Lord is mobilizing His army for the next move of God in order to take the kingdoms of this world for His own. These kingdoms, or mountains of cultural influence, will not be taken without a fight. Much like when Israel was directed to possess the land, there are “giants” on these mountains of influence that are greater and mightier than we are (see Rev. 11:15; Deut. 7, 8). We must not forget that the Lord Jesus is a mighty warrior who fights for His people, and that He is the same God who brought Joshua great victory in fulfilling His mandate to possess nations that were mightier than Joshua was (Exod. 15:3; Josh. 5:14, 10:8-42). (Diane Lake)

“Like dawn spreading across the mountains a large and mighty army comes, such as never was in ancient times nor ever will be in ages to come…The Lord thunders at the head of His army; His forces are beyond number, and mighty is the army that obeys His command.” (Joel 2:2, 11; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  1. Now that the election is won, we have even more to do in intercession. Are you still saying “yes” to God?

  2. Read all the passages of scripture in the devotional today. Pray for the Holy Spirit to give you revelation as you do.

  3. Ask the Lord to help you know what part you will play in the taking of these mountains of cultural influence. Pray for the “mountain” that you feel called to: Family, Religion, Government, Business, Education, Arts and Entertainment, and/or Media.

  4. Intercede for the Church that we would accept our Kingdom mandate, understand it, and start preparing for spiritual warfare. Pray the Church does not go back to sleep!

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I say yes to You! I want to be one that expands the Kingdom of God in the mountains of influence in America. Grant me revelation as I soak myself in Your Word. Show me my role in the spiritual warfare for my mountain. Show me how to pray and what actions to take to expand Your Kingdom in that realm of influence. We must turn the rudder of this great nation, and it will take much warfare to do so! I pray that the Church, who woke up to vote, would stay awake and work together to see Your Kingdom Come and Your Will Done in the nation, as it is in heaven! Thank You, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

We have entered the season to expand His Kingdom in the nation. He is fighting with us and for us and we will see a turn-around in America!
