God is Ready

It doesn’t take a spiritual giant in the faith to see what God is doing right now. We hear of awakening in West Virginia and Kentucky and California and other places. Spontaneous or purposeful, God is moving supernaturally on large numbers of people in transformative ways. The miracles will grow and grow—just watch! You know how I know? Because the miracles and salvations are happening outside the walls of church buildings. God is moving in the streets like He did when Jesus walked the earth.

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He anointed me to preach the Gospel to the poor. He has sent Me to proclaim release to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind, to free those who are oppressed, to proclaim the favorable year of the Lord.” (Luke 4:18-19; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  1. We are to be “like Christ”, so declare Luke 4:18-19 over yourself the same way Jesus did! Feel Him mantle you with His mantle of authority to walk as He walked.

  2. Ask God to pour out His Spirit through you. Ask Him to pour out Holy Spirit in your community. If He is doing it in West Virginia, why not where you are?

  3. Walk around your neighborhood and pray for your neighbors. Ask the Lord for opportunities to be a vessel of His outpouring there. Look around and notice things you haven’t noticed before. Greet people you haven’t greeted before. If you see an opportunity to help someone, do it and ask them if you can pray for them when you’re done. Miracles often start this simply!

A prayer you can pray:

Father, You are ready to pour out Your Spirit. We believe that the pockets of awakening we have been seeing are firstfruits offerings of what is about to become something broad. The scope of it will be huge! We ask that You tip that bowl right now. Begin to pour out revival. Pour it out through me right here in my neighborhood. Signs, wonders, miracles, radical deliverances. Out there under bridges, in houses, backyards, businesses, family room, home groups, living rooms, family rooms and cars—we’re asking You to come. Come, Lord Jesus, one and Only King. Amen.

Today’s decree:

God is ready to pour out His Spirit in a great outpouring changing us and changing our cities and nation!
