Song: Lion/ Elevation Worship
Scripture: Nehemiah 6:15-16
“The wall was finished—just fifty-two days after we had begun. When our enemies and the surrounding nations heard about it, they were frightened and humiliated. They realized this work had been done with the help of our God.”
The Lord has given you a specific task, a calling, your destiny to be proactive with! Every believer has a part to play in these last of days. We will not back down when the enemy tries to stop or detour us! We can all pray, decree, praise, revere, and worship Jesus! As pastor Tim Sheets says, “Spend your influence!” Use what is in your hands to further the kingdom of God here on earth! Your labor and intercession are making a difference!
Prayer: Jesus, the enemy, tries to intimidate us, imagining he could discourage us and stop the work you have for us to do. Help us to continue your work with even greater determination, as Nehemiah did. Let us rise up with perseverance, strength, and joy in you! As the enemies tried to frighten the Israelites as they built the wall of Jerusalem, thinking, “Their hands will get too weak for the work, and it will not be completed.” They were wrong because you are our God of victory! We pray as Nehemiah prayed, “Now strengthen my hands.” (Neh. 6:9) Thank you, Jesus, for hearing our prayers! Yours, Lord, is the kingdom; you are exalted as head over all.” (1 Chron. 29:11) How we praise and thank you, Jesus, for the battle is the Lord’s! Amen.
Decree out loud: I decree the enemy is losing his nerve when the prayer intercessors pray and decree in faith! I declare his schemes are backfiring and will turn around for God’s glory and be a major detriment to all his demon forces. I declare greater is Jesus in us than he who is in the world! I decree with great adoration and love, “Yours, Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours.” (1 Chron. 29:11) Amen.
Prophetic encouragement: I hear a great backlash against the enemy as believers throughout the world say “enough is enough” in prayer and decrees! I see and hear Jesus roaring as the Lion of Judah coming in His great glory, protecting His remnant. He is breaking off and stopping evil agendas and wicked people. Justice is here!
