Make Firm Your Stand and Stand Still
March 10, 2017
Praying in the presence of the Lord, I heard him saying “Because of the many doors of opportunities that will be flung, wide open in front of so many, compromise is standing ready at the doors, to hunt down destinies. Don’t leave your post, the Lord said, unless PEACE, My Peace, be the banner over your head, don’t move and stand still. “
I sensed that the heart of the Lord for us all is to keep the watch of the Lord in order, over boundaries and borders in an individual manner as well as corporately.
[Oh, I know, I have been rash to talk out plainly this way to God!] I will [in my thinking] stand upon my post of observation and station myself on the tower or fortress, and will watch to see what He will say to me and what answer I will make [as His mouthpiece] to the perplexities of my complaint against Him. Habakkuk 2: 1 AMP.
While meditating on Habakkuk and connecting the dots of what the lord mentioned above, I heard a hissing of a snack and when I moved my head as a reaction to how loud the sound was, I saw in the spirit a yellow snake hiding behind an open door and I recognized it as a spirit of compromise and deception.
The vision shifted and I was looking at a person stepping through a wide, open door but with the first step, I saw an arm stretched out and pulled that person back as an act of protection from a danger that was lurking inside the door. I knew it was the protection of the Lord, that after we do our homework, pray, seek his counsel, step forward with discernment and peace then we can simply trust him to watch our backs and provide the protection needed.
Psalm 23: 6 was quickened
Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
Exercise Spiritual Senses
Hebrews 5:14 says: 14 But solid food is for full-grown men, for those whose senses and mental faculties are trained by practice to discriminate and distinguish between what is morally good and noble and what is evil and contrary either to divine or human law.
The Lord is encouraging us all to stand firm and not be shaken, for everything we deal with and endure in this life no matter how it looks like, good or bad, will turn at the end and work for our good if we keep the watch believing.
Romans 8: 28
We are assured and know that [[a]God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose.
The Lord highlighted Walls as well as doors to me when Isaiah 62:6 was quickened to my spirit
I have posted watchmen on your walls, Jerusalem; they will never be silent day or night. You who call on the LORD, give yourselves no rest,
I sensed the importance of watching the walls and the doors of the city. The walls and the doors of the church. The walls and the doors of your house and the walls and the doors to your own heart as well as your eyes and mouth.
The Lord spoke and said “While I am calling you to stand your post and keep the watch faithfully, I call you to march toward that walls that are standing in the way of your promise land and in the name of the Lord you command it to crumble and to come down. You declare “What are you, mighty mountains? Before Zerubbabel you will become level ground” Zechariah 4:7 and what you commanded shall come to pass.
Actions Speak Louder than Words
The Lord said “I invite you to press deeper in worship, to press deeper into me so I reveal mysteries to you, I will reveal answers to your questions and strategies to your goals. You need to put me first in your agenda and spend time with me where it will be me and you alone. Spread your plans in front of me and receive insight to what I want to accomplish through you. Anything that will be done without my counsel, no matter how good it sounds or looks like, it will not bring you the blessing that you are seeking. You will honor me when you do the work that I send you to do”.
The Lord quickened the story of Elijah and Elisha (1 Kings 19:19-21) to my remembrance and showed me that although he had a plan to be accomplished through both prophets communicating together, he had plans for every single one of them individually. The Lord said that whenever you are having the time to gather together with one spirit company, you are to set a time for me and you alone for what I have for you will be released when you are resting on my chest, in the place where I will feed you and quench your thirst. A great ministry that may touch and bless so many in my kingdom is the birth of devoted, consecrated time with me. Allow me to bless you with what only me can give.
