The Lord says, Don’t forget you have DEITY in you. My DEITY resides within you. Your DNA changed at the moment you introduced Me into the equation and by that event, everything changed in you. Destiny Now Activated. Destiny Far-Reaching; far exceeding your wildest dreams, thoughts, and imaginations, far-reaching! I provide fire by night and a cloud to cover you in the day. I make a way. Still and always, I AM this.
Do not be discouraged, only believe. Be strong and very courageous for the Lord will be with you wherever you go to give you great success.
Joshua 1:9 (MSG)
After the death of Moses the servant of God, God spoke to Joshua, Moses’ assistant:
“Moses my servant is dead. Get going. Cross this Jordan River, you and all the people. Cross to the country I’m giving to the People of Israel. I’m giving you every square inch of the land you set your foot on—just as I promised Moses. From the wilderness and this Lebanon east to the Great River, the Euphrates River—all the Hittite country—and then west to the Great Sea. It’s all yours. All your life, no one will be able to hold out against you. In the same way I was with Moses, I’ll be with you. I won’t give up on you; I won’t leave you. Strength! Courage! You are going to lead this people to inherit the land that I promised to give their ancestors. Give it everything you have, heart and soul. Make sure you carry out The Revelation that Moses commanded you, every bit of it. Don’t get off track, either left or right, so as to make sure you get to where you’re going. And don’t for a minute let this Book of The Revelation be out of mind. Ponder and meditate on it day and night, making sure you practice everything written in it. Then you’ll get where you’re going; then you’ll succeed. Haven’t I commanded you? Strength! Courage! Don’t be timid; don’t get discouraged. God, your God, is with you every step you take.”
In this city, we are setting the boundary of the Lord around the perimeters of the city and taking it back for the Lord. The Lord says, “Everywhere you set your foot, I am giving this land to you.” All we have to do is walk and trust God. As we prayer walk around the cities, we will see the enemy fall; we will see the addiction epidemic broken, and we will see the victory that has already been gained in Jesus Christ.
Listen, people keep saying, “What can we do? Our state (city, nation, world) is a mess! Children are dying! Can’t law enforcement do more? Can’t recovery and rehab programs do more?” Many have made suggestions ranging from the ridiculous to the frustrated responses of our raw humanness. But with all we seem to be doing, this series of motions and acts eventually circle us back to the original problem. We must walk in the power and authority of Christ, knowing the Deity that resides in us, and take back what the enemy has stolen.
As much as the Holy Spirit pours out, the enemy is always going to kick back hard, but the TRUTH of God WINS in the end. As we speak the Truth of the Word of God and stand firm on it, we pray and we walk IN Him in Victory over all of this. He will guide us and direct us, as we acknowledge Him, purify ourselves before Him and pray. As we listen, we hear His direction, and then (this is the hard part) we DO what we HEAR! WALK it out in PRAYER.
Walk in Victory and not defeat. Walk in Grace by Faith.
Walk, knowing the Deity that lives in us changes us and changes everyone we touch.
