“Today is the day you rise above your enemies, the tormentors! Today is the day to accelerate in me! Today is the day for freedom and liberty in me! Today is a breakthrough day! Today I will go before you and prepare a way where/when there seems to be no way! Today is the day of my manifestation and love poured out. Open your eyes of your heart to see it!” Jesus whispered to my heart recently. He continued and has repeated to me more than once lately, I make streams in the desert… “I am doing something brand new, something unheard of. Even now it sprouts and grows and matures. Don’t you perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and open up flowing streams in the desert.” Isaiah 43:19 (TPT)
The enemy wants to slow you down and distract you from Jesus’ love and timing. The good news is he is defeated through our union, our bond, our oneness with Christ as we share in the triumphs of His cross and victorious resurrection. The word of our testimony is powerful, too. Your story is personal and unique to you. People are not apt to argue what He has personally done for you, taught to you, and therefore lived out by you! The blood of our sacrificial lamb (Jesus) covers all of our sins and makes a way for us to come to the Father.
1 John 2:13-14 (TPT) “I remind you, fathers and mothers: you have a relationship with the One who has existed from the beginning. And I remind you, young people: you have defeated the Evil one. I write these things to you, dear children because you truly have a relationship with the Father. I write these things, fathers and mothers because you have had a true relationship with Him who is from the beginning. And I write these things, young people, because you are strong, the Word of God is treasured in your hearts, and you have defeated the Evil One.”
We defeat the enemy by our relationship with God and speaking out loud, victorious scriptures in our time of need. When you treasure and meditate on scripture, the Holy Spirit will bring it to mind when you need to use it as the Sword of Truth! The accuser of mankind has been defeated because Jesus’ Authority has been established. We have Jesus’ authority in us as co-heirs of Christ, seated in the heaven lies, so we can rise up against the spiritual warfare that comes our way.
Then I heard a triumphant voice in heaven proclaiming:
“Now salvation and power are set in place, and the kingdom reign of our God and the ruling authority of His Anointed One are established. For the accuser of our brothers and sisters, who relentlessly accused them day and night before our God, has now been defeated—cast out once and for all!” Revelation 12:10 (The Passion Translation)
What about the evil you see going on around you? Proverbs 14:22 (NIV) helps us: “Do not those who plot evil go astray? But those who plan what is good find love and faithfulness.”
At the cross of Christ, we see His Life, Death, and Resurrection. He is a Leader to all who would follow His example of love, joy, and peace. We too can become His followers and leaders. How you ask? By being a beautiful example of what it means to follow Him daily and practicing His ways of living and loving patiently with His demeanor and grace.
“Watch for the new thing I am going to do. It is happening already—you can see it now! I will make a road through the wilderness and give you streams of water there.” Isa. 43:19 (GNT)
Sounds like a breakthrough and an acceleration! Believe Him! He is going to do something amazing in your life!
Have a joy-filled day drenched in Jesus’ love!
