I had a powerful encounter with the Lord today and felt overwhelmed with a deep shaking — an encounter that made my heart long for Him more profoundly. He made His presence known in my room — an encounter that moved me so deeply. I heard that still small voice talk to my spirit, “I want you to walk with Me.” Deeply moved, tears just kept rolling down my face, yet, I managed to reply, “Yes, I will, my Lord; take me, wherever you NEED me to be.”
I heard His voice again, “I want you to walk with Me, but it will not be easy. But I want you to trust Me.” This encounter was different than what I have had before; we had a longer heart-to-heart conversation this time, and it has left me longing for more of Him. He then added, “It will be uneasy but I want you to trust Me; I will take you one step at a time, and I will give you a new name.”
Deeply, I sensed this is a STRONG message for those of you who have a strong mandate from heaven and have experienced His life-changing presence. There will be violent and eruptive battles ahead; there will be blazing darts of the wicked one, but place your confident trust in the Lord no matter what happens! The enemy is on the move — he’s released His legion to shatter and scatter you, to stop you from entering into your season, to march forward, to advance! He knows his time is limited and is determined to forcibly execute his devilish strategies, entrapment and evil plans!!!
Prepare for battle, gird yourselves and let God’s Word, “the quickening wind,” inflame, ignite and intensify your spiritual senses. The Lord of Hosts says “Trust Me” — He will not let you be broken into pieces! Your enemies’ efforts will be in vain — by God’s empowering grace, they will be shattered! “But God will restore everything you lost; he’ll have compassion on you; he’ll come back and pick up the pieces from all the places where you were scattered.” (Deuteronomy 30:3, The Message)
I pray that no weapon, no power, no force, no evil that is forged against you, your families, ministries, relationships, God-given destinies, health and finances will prosper, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you! “The nations will see your vindication, and all the kings your glory; and people will call you by a new name that the mouth of the LORD will bestow!” (Isaiah 62:2)
