I Prayed have prayed
God, we exalt You. You are true and faithful. We can and will trust in You. May Your will be done, Your kingdom come.

In times like these, when darkness seems to be encroaching ever closer to our own front doors, we might wonder, is God really listening? Does He see what is happening and will He take action on our behalf? What is heaven doing right now?

The Lord’s pronouncement is sure

I just received a word from a leader and prophetic intercessor in Texas, Chip Payne, who was awakened 2 days ago hearing the words “Micah 2 – go read Micah 2.” He felt the Lord wanted His people to know His intention towards those who were “practicing rebellion and ardently working against the Lord – and knew it.” This was not directed towards those who are caught in the middle or unknowingly siding with evil, but those who have deliberately set their hearts against the Lord.

Micah 2: 1-3 (NIV)

1 Woe to those who plan iniquity, to those who plot evil on their beds! At morning’s light they carry it out because it is in their power to do it.

2 They covet fields and seize them, and houses, and take them. They defraud people of their homes; they rob them of their inheritance.

3 Therefore, the Lord says: “I am planning disaster against this people, from which you cannot save yourselves. You will no longer walk proudly, for it will be a time of calamity.

 Chip states, “When the Lord brought this passage to attention it was in the context of His pronouncement against those who are in active rebellion against Him, willfully partnering with this spirit in order to obtain power and control.  The Lord is slow to anger, abounding in love, and rich in mercy, but He also is for loosing the bonds of injustice and removing the straps of the oppressor (see Isaiah 58).  This word was not only a declaration from the court of the Lord that this is a settled matter; it was also from the heart of encouragement to His bride that He is aware, He has heard, and He is responding!!!”

Chip also shared that the Lord gave him Psalm 67 and 68 as exhortations to exalt and rejoice in the Lord.  “He is Faithful!  He is Good!  He is Just!  He listens to His children!  When we become discouraged by circumstances, it is because our circumstance has captured our attention more than who He is!!!  Let’s move the eyes of our hearts back to the truth of His character and start exalting and rejoicing now!”

We must keep our eyes properly fixed

In consultation with Lora Allison, an international prophet and minister, she adds, “It is so vital in this hour that we not allow the inflammatory words flying so thickly to be a hook into our hearts and our emotions. Otherwise, they will draw us into the anger, hatred, division, and violence that is the intention of the enemy. As we cleave to the nature and character of our God in walking out this challenging situation, we will live in the Spirit and intercede from heaven to earth. We must partner with the Lord and look at the things which are not seen, for they are eternal. We must continually fix our gaze upon Him and great peace will always be the result.”

Our faith must rest in His heart and character, not His methods or timing

(Wanda) The Lord’s pronouncement upon His enemies is sure and His justice is always on time. Even so, our faith is being tested. Our faith cannot rest in a desired outcome or even a prophetic word fulfilled. The Lord wants our faith to rest securely IN HIM ALONE. We must know His heart and character above all else and not debate “when” or “how” He is going to respond. We must simply know that HE IS – not because it has been prophesied – but because we know Him. We know His heart for His people. We know His compassion for the poor and weak. We know His truth and justice that always prevails. We know He is good and any temporary setback only serves an eternal glory that far outweighs any current trouble (see Philippians 3:8-11).

The enemy will continue to do all he can to discourage us through delays, distractions, and destructive schemes. Regardless of the dark clouds that hover, God is a just God and never wavers in His plans for our good. Now is not the time to doubt God’s word or cave in to fear. We must know in whom we have believed and trust that He will finish what He has started. He alone knows all that is taking place and we can trust Him – simply because we know WHO HE IS.

“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty!” (Revelation 1:8)

Remember your Creator before the cord of silver is snapped.
The dust returns to the earth where it was, and the spirit returns to God who gave it.
Keep His commandments, for this is the whole duty of man.

I agree with this word from God. Last week as I was waking, normally I turn on the news. All of a sudden I felt sick to my stomach. Immediately I though it was something I ate the night before, but the Lord impressed upon me it wasn’t something I ate, but what I was taking in at that moment. The Lord said what I was watching and listening to was “poison to my soul.” All the negativity, repeated over and over was was making me sick. Immediately I turned the TV off and began to pray. This morning as I began to write this response the Lord reminded me of one of my heroes of the faith, Smith Wigglesworth. Wigglesworth once commented that he never allowed a newspaper to enter his home, he said all he needed was God’s word, nothing else. Maybe we need to heed his example. If I may, I would like to add one more thing,God warns us not to “fear man.” The “fear of man” is even affecting Christian heroes like Drew Brees. The other day he was forced to reverse his strong defense of the flag because of the backlash it caused. Satan is creating fear in the hearts and minds of even prominent men like Drew Brees. Lord, give us courage and strength to reign in the midst of our enemies.

    Funny you should say this, God pricked my heart about this very thing. I cannot tolerate viewing news I don’t feel good after and now I know why.
    Thank you for sharing this and thank you Lord for showing me truth!!

    The fear of man brings a snare. God word says fear not for I AM with you.

Amen! God is in control! Romans 5:2-5 “Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.”

Wanda, I am no prominent Phrophet , but an older Intercessor/Watchman. The faithful Remnant has matured to Adoption and WE are to take His “unlimited authority” and war with His quickened Word in the heavenlies…beginning with the spirit of rebellion. We are here at this place, not because He does not hear us but because we have not done our part to declare, bind and loose, take our authority. Ps 2:8-9 TPT

June 8, 2020

Lord, Thank You for these words of encouragement. I ask You to forgive me when I fall into fear and start believing the lies of the enemy. Thank You that You never leave me alone in my failures, but strengthen and renew my mind through Your Word and by the power of Your Holy Spirit. Yes, Lord we trust You and know that You alone are faithful and that You have provided for every longing of our hearts! Praise be to You, Lord God! Ready Your church during these challenging times! May we do Your will as we Share the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ! In His Name we pray! Amen

As a child of the most High God and believer in Jesus Christ, I too take the authority given to me and I come against every act of violence. I stand in agreement with the army of Heaven, the host of heaven to go forth now and expose every act of injustice, every plan of violence and the evil people who get people to join their group by paying them. I wait on the Lord to end these evil acts and trust in His justice, in Jesus Name.
