A Word to Encourage You


I want to encourage you about this season we are in. It has been long and many are growing weary. I want you to know that this is an exciting season. It’s not a season to become discouraged. We need to see what God is doing, so we can continue to pray in faith. I realize many are experiencing physical and financial problems. Don’t let those things cause you to be disheartened. Remind yourself of God’s goodness. Remember His promises and recount them to yourself. Persevere. God is the God of restoration. If you have had losses—physical or financial, or a loss of a job or a business—believe that God is coming to restore you. He is going to take care of you. Keep your eyes on Him and know He can turn any situation around.

We are in a season where the Lord is causing the Ekklesia to walk in great faith. It’s time to do exploits. That is what the enemy is trying to stop. He sees you differently than you may see yourself. Satan sees you as a threat. Remember, he is always trying to stop what God is doing in the earth. God is advancing His Kingdom through you, and the enemy wants to stop that.

God has been working to make His Church a well-trained fighting force. He has taught us about His gifts and He has taught us how to use them effectively. Many can pray, intercede, declare, and decree with expert marksmanship. We have learned how to take strongholds down that have been controlling places for years, sometimes centuries. We know how to listen for His direction on how to set captives free. We have become bold as lions. Realize that all of this is a tremendous threat to Satan and his demonic hordes. They thought they were winning—and they have taken a lot of ground. However, the Church has awakened and is transforming into a mighty threshing instrument with teeth.

Some have misunderstood and thought we are in a political battle. This is far more than that! We are in a spiritual battle. We are in a battle for the foundations of this nation to be fully restored and reset firmly for generations to follow us. Our vote on November 3rd will be a part of our warfare. We must pray and vote to see the manifestation of what’s being done in the spirit realm. So, gird up your loins, Church! We are on the right track and you are on the winning team. Pick up any weapons you may have laid down. Let’s press in and secure the victory!

“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ, “ (2 Corinthians 10:3-5; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Worship the Lord and give Him all Your fear, pain, grief, and discouragement, for He cares for You. Remember all the good things He has done for you and your family over the years.

  • Make the declaration, “God is always good to me! He has saved me, healed me, and delivered me numerous times. He has blessed me and I am satisfied. It is well with my soul.”

  • Talk with Him about the things you see the enemy doing. Let Him give you His perspective. See what He is doing that the enemy is so angry about. Let this revelation fill you with faith and hope for the future.

  • Say, “Recalibrate, reset and reconstitute my life and our nation, Father!”

  • Declare, “Our nation is returning to You, Lord!”

  • Cry out for the greatest harvest of souls this earth has every seen.

  • Plan to vote on November 3rd. Research your options and compare them by a biblical standard.

A prayer you can pray:

God, we refresh our view of You and what You are doing in America today! You are releasing a fresh outpouring of Your Spirit. You are bringing forth a new level of Your Ekklesia. In all of history, we have never seen the things You are about to do. This is a season to remember all You have done for us through the years. You have been so good to us, Lord! It is not a season of permanent loss and destruction. It is a season of reset for advancement!

We will consecrate ourselves and separate ourselves unto You. Give us Your perspective. Show us what You are doing and how the enemy is trying to stop it. Prepare our hearts for the great exploits You have promised. Prepare us to reap a great harvest of souls. Where we may have become rusty or complacent in evangelism, fire up our hearts. The heat of the refining fire is not to destroy us, but to remove everything that would hinder or stop us from working with You. Remove the dross from us.

Recalibrate, reset and reconstitute our nation, even as you are doing in our hearts. Our nation needs an outpouring of Your Spirit such as we have never seen. Put some things back the way You made them in the beginning. Reverse wrong governmental decisions that have occurred over the years, such as the legalizing of abortion. We have prayed fervently for many years. Now, let us reap the harvest of that intercession. We ask for a great harvest, Jesus. We are asking for a great harvest of souls, of changed hearts, of prodigals returning, and of a nation returning to You. Amen.

Today’s decree:

God is advancing His Kingdom in the earth and we won’t let the enemy stop it!
