The Charges and Accusations Against You Have Been Canceled

Kathi Pelton

The enemy has sent many “charges and accusations” against those who have been purchased by grace and made right (righteous) by the blood of Jesus. As God’s children we are to have no agreement, nor entertain any charges or accusations, that would in any way reduce the fullness of what Christ did on the cross for us. Though our lives are being refined, purified and renewed daily, our shortcomings and maturing process does not reduce or diminish the fullness of the grace that paid for ALL of our sins.

“He canceled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross. In this way, he disarmed the spiritual rulers and authorities. He shamed them publicly by his victory over them on the cross.” Colossians‬ ‭2:14-15‬ ‭NLT‬‬

There is a seduction of legalism and religiosity that tries to take hold of the believer, to entice him or her into agreeing with the accuser that there are pending charges against us. If the bait is taken, we will quickly move from the humble posture of grace into the works of the flesh that come out of human strength. The grace that comes from the cross of Christ will move us into renewal and transformation faster than any works that condemnation could ever attempt to accomplish. True conviction comes from the place of recognizing our absolute weakness and inability to save or redeem ourselves.

“Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.” 2 Corinthians‬ ‭12:9‬

When we agree with Christ regarding our pardon from all charges against us because of the blood He shed on the cross, in turn we humble ourselves before the grace of God so that His power can work in us, bringing His power that transforms and purifies.

Grace is not a license to sin; that attitude reveals that grace has been misunderstood and misdefined. Such a posture is foolish. True grace saves a person from the old, arrogant, and careless ways that led them into foolishness and defilement. It also saves a person from self-deprivation and condemnation that leads them into works and the strength of flesh. The grace that came from the shed blood of our Savior, who bore the sin of all mankind, causes us to bow down in humility and human weakness to receive the strength and power that comes from Him alone.

This is to be our agreement and our authority. This is what disarms the enemy (spiritual rulers and authorities in unseen realms) that come to try to diminish the finished work of the cross in your life and in the body of Christ as a whole.

We will agree with the blood of Jesus that speaks a better word! We will agree with the truth that the charges brought against us have been paid in full by the blood of Jesus upon the cross. We will agree with, and even boast in, our weakness so that there is room for His strength and power to be made manifest within us.

If you are feeling accused, condemned, charged, or sentenced: today is the day to put those things under the blood of Jesus that washes away all guilt through His innocence. Settle the matter in humility so that the transformational work that has happened in the spirit will begin to manifest in the natural. Do not agree with the accusation against Christ that says His blood was not enough to cancel the charges against you.

His grace is sufficient!

Things Are Not As They Appear

Kathi Pelton

The morning after the US mid-term elections I woke up hearing the Spirit of the Lord speak the words,

“Things are not as they appear.”

Although He was speaking of the election outcome, I knew in my spirit that He was also speaking about many things that look one way but there is more going on than we can perceive with our eyes.

I knew that things nationally, corporately and personally should not be judged by sight but by the Spirit of the Lord and according to His faithfulness.

Then, just days later on 11/11 I was drawn to to Hebrews 11:11 that says,

“By faith Sarah herself also received strength to conceive seed, and she bore a child when she was past the age, because she judged Him faithful who had promised.” Hebrews‬ ‭11:11

For Abraham and Sarah things were not as they appeared either. The promised of a child appeared to reached its “expiration date”. Sarah was no longer in her child-bearing years. But here is the key of faith that most people miss in this verse, “…because she judged Him faithful who had promised.”

Far too often I receive letters or hear Christians talking about how they are disappointed in God because He did not keep His promise to them or a prophetic word did not come to pass in the time frame that they expected.

I have a number of promises and prophetic words that “if I were to judge by my eyes” would appear to be past the season of possible fulfillment. BUT…I do not judge my God on what my eyes see but rather upon who I know He is! He is faithful and I will never cease to declare this or “judge/discern” Him as such. His promises are true and He is forever faithful.

November has been a month of amazing contrast. The natural (seen) world seems to be declaring defeats and destruction but the unseen world is announcing that we have entered a time of “promises fulfilled”. What report will we believe? Will we walk by faith or by sight? Will we judge God as faithful or accuse Him of not keeping His promises or fulfilling prophetic words?

One thing that I have discovered through walking in the prophetic culture for almost thirty years is that I must trust His timing and to posture my life in His faithfulness; even when my eyes see another story playing out before me. In a moment everything can turn and change.

At the time that Sarah received her long-awaited promise everything in the natural realm was narrating the story as one of failure of defeat. But God had the final word and He was the author of her promise and her story. He had a surprise ending that brought forth the promise of a son. She believed God to be faithful and she received her promise.

I see in my spirit long awaited promises that look like the nine month belly of a pregnant woman. The due date is upon these promises to come forth! It is as though I can feel the fullness of time regarding promises of old being fulfilled. Your natural surroundings may be shouting a different outcome and story but the One who is faithful is bringing forth Hebrew 11 promises that seem past the time of possibility.

Posture your life and your faith in the place that declares Him faithful and true. Your story is not finished and He has the final word. Take hope and strengthen your soul in the truth of His faithfulness.

John 11:11 also speaks of a different outcome than the eyes can see and a far more dramatic one,

“After saying these things, he said to them, “Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep, but I go to awaken him.”” John‬ ‭11:11‬

Just as God awakened Lazarus from the dead so He will awaken dead promises and dreams that you have buried. They will come forth and live! He is faithful!

Today Marks Your Eleventh Hour Victory

Kathi Pelton

The 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month 100 years ago today the 1st World War (WW1) ended. It was called, the “war to end all wars.” Today many of you have been in a war that has hit every front in your life but just watch what God will do in this 11th hour.

“By faith Sarah herself also received strength to conceive seed, and she bore a child when she was past the age, because she judged Him faithful who had promised.”

‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭11:11‬ ‭

He will now shift you into promises that are old and seem past the time that they can be hoped for or carried! Watch God fill you with strength to carry the fulfillment of His promise. For those who have stood and judged God as faithful and true…this is your time to receive the promise!

It’s Time To Get Ready For Your Promise To Be Fulfilled

Kathi Pelton

I saw in the spirit heaven bustling with busyness and great activity. It reminded me of the childhood scenes of Santa’s workshop just before the arrival of Christmas Eve. Angels were preparing things to be delivered, scrolls and heavenly blueprints were being looked over with great detail and a great preparation was underway. I also saw angels that were overseeing the preparation of hearts and the lives who were about to receive these gifts…for the gifts were promises fulfilled.

I immediately had an urgent sense of “get ready”. I found that interesting since our family is in the midst of a huge preparation as our oldest son and his family prepare to relocate from New York in order to move the the Pacific Northwest (where we live) to be a part of what God is doing here. At the very same time our youngest son is moving from California to the Portland area to also be with us as well. Our house has been bustling with activity and preparation as an influx of six more people come to join us at the end of the month. Even our hearts are being prepared for what is required to walk in unity, intimacy and oneness of hearts together.

This is a time to get ready and be prepared. First we prepare our hearts and then our lives to make room for what He is bringing. Far to often we want the promise but the ground work and preparation has not taken place. This causes chaos and warfare to immediately ensue when the promise arrives. Preparation is key to the fullness of joy that is to come with the fulfillment.

I am reminded of when one of our family members bought a pre-fabricated house and the great work that had to take place prior to its arrival. The land had to be cleared, a foundation had to be laid, electricity and plumbing had to be prepared and a wide space made for the massive trucks delivering it. It was an “all hands on deck” time. I see the preparation in His people’s hearts and lives in a similar way.

This is an “all hands on deck” kind of season. It’s a “get ready” and be preparing time and season. Something is arriving that must be prepared for. There must be room made in your heart and life for the gifts that are arriving. Do not be caught unaware because it will create unnecessary problems and warfare that will spoil the joy of this fulfillment.

“Listen! It’s the voice of someone shouting, “Clear the way through the wilderness for the LORD! Make a straight highway through the wasteland for our God!” Isaiah 40:3

Mountains are being lowered and valleys raised up! Stones and obstructions are being removed. A great clearing has begun both internally and externally.

“Be it unto me according to your word.” Luke 1:38

Get ready!

The Wind of His Spirit is Blowing…Igniting His Burning Ones

Kathi Pelton

My husband and I have the honor of pastoring an amazing group of young adults. On Monday night we had our worship and equipping night in downtown Portland. We have been teaching a series on “Discernment” and as we prepared to teach we discerned that we were to wait (rather than teach) because we sensed a wind of the Spirit beginning to blow upon our time together. As our worship team began to sing, what had began as a gentle breeze of His Spirit suddenly became a mighty wind upon every person present. We were sovereignty taken into what I’d call “throne room worship” as we joined with the angels and sang, “Holy, Holy, Holy.” The wind of His Spirit was blowing away obstacles and fanning into flame the beautiful gift of God upon this generation. They fully yielded to His wind and they became burning ones. We were taken into encounters that lasted the whole night.

Then, early this morning as I sat down to spend time with the Lord I noticed a lot of noise outside. When I looked out the window the wind was blowing so hard (it still is as I write this) that things were being blown over. Again, I discerned that a wind of His Spirit has come to blow upon His people. This sovereign wind will blow away the darkness and fan into flame the “burning ones”. You may feel as though you are merely a spark or ember but when His wind touches you…you will burn with a holy fire. Darkness will flee from lives, families, cities and nations because the light of these burning ones will expose the darkness. It will bring deliverance (a way out) for those who have been lost in darkness. It will bring revival and reformation for those who have hungered for the Lord and it will ignite cities to be “lights on a hill” and a refuge for all.

A shift has happened which has released the wind of heaven to blow upon the earth. The worship of heaven will become the worship on earth and will come upon earthly vessels. When you discern the gentle breeze of His Spirit beginning to blow…STOP! Let it blow upon you and enter into it. Let it fan into flame the very gift of God within you and ignite you with a fire that is unquenchable.

I hear the Lord saying to the United States of America,

“Do you feel the wind of My Spirit beginning to blow? Can you discern that the small cloud overhead is the sign of an abundance of rain? Do you see that fire is about to fall on your offering? Watch for the wind, the rain and the fire of Heaven to fall upon your nation. Prophesy it, declare it and believe it!”

We come into agreement with His word and we prophesy to the gentle breeze that a mighty wind is about to blow. We prophesy to the cloud that an abundance of rain is about to fall. We prophesy over the offering that His revival fire is about to ignite us! Blow on our nation, reign over our land and send holy fire upon Your people. May Your wind send the sparks of what is ignited in the United States to our neighbors in the north and our neighbors in the south; igniting them with your holy fire. May it blow over the waters and touch the nations with the elements of heaven.

Today, we invite your wind to blow away the darkness and ignite the holy fires of revival. Your rain (and reign) of abundance will fall upon your people causing a tsunami of power and love to flood the nations.

You Are Not Alone In The Battle!

Kathi Pelton

There is a reality that we must grasp as those who have given their lives to the King of Kings…we are in a continuous battle! The problem occurs when the battle becomes our focus rather than the King. That battle is the real battle!

The enemy is always plotting ways to draw our focus and our affections away from the One who holds us in the arms of grace and perfect love; desiring to cause our focus to be upon the darkness rather than the light. We are children of the Light and within the light of His promises, His victory and His perfect love we will find peace and rest in the midst of the battles. Yes, the battles are real but the victories are already established in the finished work of the cross.

You may be facing battles that have touched your family, your body, your resources, your mind and your emotions but know this…YOU ARE NOT ALONE IN THE BATTLE! Not only are you not alone but the reality is that the battle is not yours but it belongs to the Lord.

Have you taken ownership of the battles that are before you? If so, give them back to the Lord. He has victory in His hand and rest for you that will refresh you and bring you victory.

Refocus your gaze and affections on the Lover of your soul…Jesus! Not only are you not alone in your battle but the King desires to take your battle upon Himself. As you focus your affections and attention upon Him, He will bring you rest. Praise Him for who He is! Praise Him for the beauty of His holiness, the brilliance of His light and the perfection of His love. These are the only weapons you need in the battle and the Lord will do the rest.

You cannot fight these battle in the strength of man but rather they are won in the position of surrender. Not surrender to the enemy but surrender to the Lord. He will bare His mighty arm on your behalf and His strength will defeat the enemies that have surrounded you. It is in the place of our weaknesses that we see His strength made manifest, but we first must embrace the place of “boasting in our weakness” (acknowledging our weakness) so that He can be shown strong.

Remember the words that the Lord spoke to Jehoshaphat,

“…The LORD says this to you: ‘Be not afraid or dismayed at this great multitude, for the battle is not yours, but God’s.” 2 Chronicles 20:15‬(b)

Jehoshaphat’s response to the Lord’s promise was to fall on his face and worship. Of a matter of fact, all the inhabitants of Jerusalem did the same thing. They bowed to worship the Lord.

The next morning they went out to face their enemy and this is what happened,

“When he had consulted with the people, he appointed those who sang to the LORD and those who praised Him in their holy (priestly) attire, as they went out before the army and said, “Praise and give thanks to the LORD, for His mercy and lovingkindness endure forever.” When they began singing and praising, the LORD set ambushes against the sons of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah; so they were struck down [in defeat].” 2 Chronicles‬ ‭20:21-22‬

Lift up your voice and praise the Lord for His mercy and lovingkindness! Praise Him as you go out today to face your enemy. Do not focus on the enemy but on the Lord! Do not fear, do not be dismayed…worship and watch God strike the enemy down in utter defeat!

You are not alone but you must surrender the battle to the Lord, who will set an ambush against the enemy and bring him down in “utter defeat!”

WORSHIP! His mercy and lovingkindness is never failing and never ending. Victory is in the hand of your King. You are not alone but the Warrior King has gone before you with victory.

God is Getting Rid of the Obstructions, Blocks and Waste

Kathi Pelton

I have not written in a number of days because last Thursday I was hit with sudden and severe pain that landed me at the hospital, where doctors discovered an infection in my colon. This was not only painful, but not so fun to talk about. No one wants to talk about the parts of our bodies that process waste, but the health of those areas can save our lives.

As I’ve walked out this painful process over the past several days I’ve come to the conclusion that there is a truth to be learned from my experience. As I spoke with some intercessor friends last night we began to discuss how the enemy may have “revealed his hand” through this attack against my body.

What I have is a condition called diverticulitis. It is where small pockets or sacks form on your colon and digested food can get caught in them and become infected (yeah…gross!). But the infection can obstruct and block the process of the body’s ability to get rid of waste, or the hidden pocket can rupture releasing the infection into the whole body causing sepsis; which can kill you.

As I laid down last night for bed I went into a vision where I was taken into places in a spiritual body, and I saw small sacks or hidden pockets where “thoughts” that were contrary to God’s truth were caught and stored (held onto). Within these hidden pockets I saw words such as “unbelief,” “fear,” “lust,” “worthless,” “greed,” “pride,” “arrogance,” etc. Though the person had processed these things and discarded them as waste, somehow a hidden pocket had stored them and it was becoming infected which would stop all waste from being released and discarded and would poison even that which is good. They were like tiny, hidden strongholds that had been planted to destroy the whole as they festered and infected even what was good.

I apologize for the graphic visual but it is important to talk about even that which is not pleasant when the Lord gives understanding and revelation. I could feel the Spirit hovering, awaiting the invitation to remove the hidden strongholds that held wrong beliefs or things that were once consumed but never fully removed. These hidden places will creep up and cause you sudden pain when you least expect it. God is waiting to remove these hidden pockets and strongholds with His power to search out every hidden thing.

This not only applies to us individually, but corporately. As I was speaking to my friends last night they began to tell me how they were taken into a vision about my condition, where they saw the corporate body flooded with individuals who were wasted, homeless, dirty, mentally ill, and unwanted. They saw many people who looked on these ones as “a waste of time” because they drained time and energy with few positive results. Many in the body were passing them by as “waste.” But the Lord was saying, “I have a way to redeem them, to deliver them and to restore them. They are not waste but sons and daughters.”

As we talked about these things I heard the verse, “Perfect love casts out fear.” But then the Lord said it a different way, “Perfect love casts out demons, addictions, strongholds, perversions, sickness, and lies.” Then I began to see a movement of His perfect love that cleanses His body first, and then pours into the streets—the highways and byways—and His perfect love turns those that have been called “waste” into sons and daughters.

I live in a large city where the homeless population and addicts are everywhere. Their garbage and “waste” is spilling into the street and polluting our beautiful city…but what if they’ve gathered here for such a time as this? What if they are our most precious resources, because when perfect love touches their lives they will be redirected into sons and daughters who will go into all the world and give that perfect love away. They are the “Todd Whites” of tomorrow and out of great darkness will come a bright light.

So, to conclude, there are two messages within this word. First, the Lord is making us a way of hidden strongholds that may be infecting your whole body. These are places where lies and sins that had once plagued you have held on in a hidden place. The Lord is here to remove them so that they will no longer cause obstruction and blocks that keep you from ridding your temple of waste. Ask the Lord to search out every hidden pocket that is holding onto a lie or a stronghold that will infect even the good. Second, let’s no longer fear what the world calls waste! We need to receive wisdom and we need to ask for His perfect love to be manifest in our places of worship, in our lives, and in the hidden places in our cities where vile things take place. May His perfect love go to the places of strongholds in our cities and nation that is infecting the whole and bring redemption and resurrection.

Pray for a movement of perfect love to go through your body and remove all hidden things; through your church, your city, and your nation. He is waiting and watching for the people and places that will receive a movement that has perfect love as its calling card upon it. Cry out for perfect love that casts out everything that brings fear and waste.

Assignments of Decrease are Breaking and the Increase of God is Upon You

Kathi Pelton

Have you been experiencing a strange weariness, mind fog and a decrease of focus…especially when you stop to pray? The past number of days I’ve felt like someone gave me “spiritual Benadryl!” I’d stop to wait upon the Lord and I would immediately experience a decrease in energy, focus and clarity.

Today I asked the Lord, “What is this?” I immediately had the Lord bring to mind that as we approach the mid-term elections and since Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court there has been a strong force of witchcraft coming against the church. I knew right away that this fogginess and lack of focus (that brings a deep weariness) is a direct result of the increase of witchcraft being released.

On October 20th witches in our nation have called for a national gathering in New York to release a “public hexing” upon Brett Kavanaugh. They have done the same thing to our president in hopes to decrease them and their authority. Though Brett Kavanaugh appears to be the target of their “hexing”, I believe it is much deeper than one man. It is against the Kingdom of God advancing and His righteousness coming to our land. It is about life and the right to life.

“The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance [to the full, till it overflows].” John 10:10

As I began to understand this I saw a vision of the Lord blowing through the atmosphere of our nation and even through the atmosphere over our individual lives (that have brought this “fog” and lack of focus upon many). As He blew away the black curses and hexes it purified and cleared the air once again. Suddenly clarity, vision, focus and renewed strength returned. Where decrease had come it was being replaced by increase; increase of wisdom and authority.

Call for the wind of God to blow upon your life and for the wind of His Spirit to blow away every curse, hex and spirit of death, destruction and decrease that has been sent upon you, your family, the Church and the leaders that God has put in places of authority within our nation. Declare that every planned hex and curse will come to nothing but will be blown back upon the the enemy and his cohorts.

Declare a divine and supernatural wind of revival to come upon God’s people and our nation that we call, “One nation under God”. Declare that no weapon that has been formed or is being formed will prosper or be effectual against God’s people, our President, our Vice President or Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Declare that those who stand for the righteousness of God in our nation will be established and protected from every assignment sent against them. Declare that the purposes and plans of God will not be aborted and lives will not come under any hex or curse sent by those aligned with the hatred of demonic forces.

GREATER IS HE THAT IS IN US! We release the power of God, the wind of His Spirit, the fire of His love and the reign and authority of the One that is worthy of all honor and all praise into our land and over our lives. Jesus establishes truth and justice and He will not be mocked.

As the Kingdom of God on earth has been increasing, the enemy has sent forth assignments of decrease but we, as one body in unity and oneness with Christ, declare that now is the time for INCREASE! By the power and the blood of Jesus Christ we trample every assignment of decrease sent against our lives, our families, God’s people and all of His chosen servants. We release an abundant increase to every place that the assignments of decrease have been sent. We declare the words of Isaiah 9:7 over our lives, our nation and over the nations of the world,

There will be no end to the increase of His government or of peace, On the throne of David and over his kingdom, To establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness from then on and forevermore. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will accomplish this.”

The zeal of the Lord of hosts will accomplish this! Declare these words, “The zeal of the Lord of hosts WILL accomplish this!” His Kingdom and His government will increase, His peace will increase, His justice will increase and His righteousness will increase…forever! You will increase and not decrease as you seek first Jesus and His Kingdom. The assignments of decrease are broken from you and increase is now upon you! Receive it, decree it and see it. The increase of His kingdom and His throne are established forever.

Amen-

God Brings Honor to Who He Created You to Be

Kathi Pelton

Last night I was having a conversation with friends about the power of honoring one another. If there is one thing that I have learned throughout my years of walking with Jesus, it is that He always honors me. He has never treated me according to the flesh but honored who He created me to be and has treated me according to that identity. When He sees me, He sees me through the eyes of honor…this is my true reality.

Many years ago I began a journey of discovering how He sees people. This journey changed everything for me. It was like receiving a pair of glasses that changed my eyes from seeing the distorted dishonor that the enemy puts upon lives to seeing the clear and honoring way that our God views another.

As we begin to see others the way that He sees them, it causes us to treat them with honor. Honor will always lifts up the one who has felt cast down.

When I was 14 years old I was already living out all sorts of evil that years of dishonor had defined in my life with. I am so grateful that a man at my high school saw me the way that Jesus saw me. He treated me with honor and it was those actions that eventually led me to Jesus.

Here are truths about dishonor and honor:

• Dishonor drags a person down where honor lifts them up.

• Dishonor exposes nakedness and honor covers shame.

• Dishonor weakens and honor strengthens

• Dishonor imprisons a man and honor sets him free

• Dishonor establishes a lie and honor restores God’s truth.

• Dishonor divides a man from God and honor reconciles him to God.

There are so many more!

The culture of honor is the Kingdom culture that we must treat all men by. As we honor someone according the image that they were created in we actually begin to call forth “Christ in them”. We honor Christ as we honor others. Honor redefines the way someone sees themselves and gives them courage to live that truth out.

Whether it is a family member or a friend, a stranger on the street or a clerk in a store, a rich man or poor man, a political leader or church leader, a child or the elderly…all need to experience honor. Honor is to be shown even if it is not deserved because that is what Jesus gave to us (and still gives to us).

I pray that the eyes of the God’s people will be fully opened to see what Jesus sees. I pray that the actions of the God’s people will be aligned with the honor of the Kingdom of God that knows that all men are created in the image of Christ. I pray that the mouth of

God’s people would speak words of life and honor over lives that have been defined by dishonor. I pray that you will see yourself with the eyes of honor.

One of the favorite sayings in our church are the words from Hebrews 12:24,

“…the blood of Jesus speaks a better word…”

Let’s speak the better word to all who cross our paths today and may honor be found upon every step you take and every word that you speak. Today I declare upon your life the better word that the blood of Jesus has spoken…

“You were created to be honored and to release honor.”

Amen~

This Is How We Pray For Our Nation To See The Victory

Kathi Pelton

“…for I will give you utterance and wisdom which none of your opponents will be able to resist or refute.” Luke 21:15

When enemies rise up against you or against those who stand for righteousness; the Lord will fill your mouth with words and wisdom that silence your foes! Many have arisen to stand as enemies against the righteousness of God and His people who stand for righteousness.

We pray for our nation’s leaders that are standing for Biblical truth and justice. “God, fill their mouths with Your utterances and give them wisdom that their opponents cannot resist or refute.”

“Your hand will be lifted up against your adversaries, And all your enemies will be cut off.” Micah 5:9

As we have seen a public display of “those who curse us and send curses against us” arise (though they have always been there); as God’s people we will posture our lives and direct our prayers according to Luke 6:28,

“…bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.”

We speak and declare blessings of salvation upon all those who have sent curses against God and His people and we pray mercy for them; knowing how much the Lord loves each one of them. This is the desire of the Lord,

“…not wanting anyone to perish but everyone to come to repentance.”

May God open the eyes of the spiritually blind and the ears of the spiritually deaf to see the beauty of His holiness. May judgement fall upon the dark forces that have deceived them and may the people be spared and come to repentance.

In 2 Chronicles 20, God’s people were facing a fierce and vast enemy that sought to displace and destroy them. Together they came before the Lord and cried out for His wisdom and His help. He answered them with these words,

“You will not need to fight in this battle. Position yourselves, stand still and see the salvation of the LORD, who is with you, O Judah and Jerusalem!’ Do not fear or be dismayed; tomorrow go out against them, for the LORD is with you.”” II Chronicles‬ ‭20:17‬ ‭

When they went out the next morning to face their enemies they announced these words,

“…Believe in the LORD your God, and you shall be established; believe His prophets, and you shall prosper.””

‭‭II Chronicles‬ ‭20:20‬(b)

Then they appointed singers who would began to sing and “praise the beauty of His holiness.” They went out before the enemy army singing,

“Praise the LORD, For His mercy endures forever.” II Chronicles‬ ‭20:21

As they began to sing THE LORD SET AN AMBUSH AGAINST THEIR ENEMIES and they were defeated. He filled their mouths with praise and then HE defeated their enemies.

Let us pray, let us praise and let us sing of the beauty of His holiness. Do not be afraid or dismayed as you look upon the enemies who have risen up against the God’s appointed people, for the battle belongs to the Lord!

Amen~~
