Do You Hear His Whistle?

by Kathi Pelton

In all the reports written and conversations being held regarding a few known voices that have “fallen away” we must continue to know that the Lord has sent forth His whistle and many are gathering with a resounding, “Yes!” in their hearts to give all for the sake of His glory. Though the enemy is highlighting the few losses— we must not forget that the gains are far greater!

“”I will whistle for them and gather them in, for I have redeemed them, and they shall be as many as they were before.” Zechariah‬ ‭10:8‬ ‭

Though this verse is specifically speaking of Israel, it also speaks of the restoration of His family that has and is being grafted in. Headline news mostly focuses on the losses but the Lord is announcing the advancement and the multiplication of sons and daughters that are responding to His whistle. They are returning to the Lord in numbers far greater than the few who are falling away. We can pray for those ones but we must not forget to rejoice at those who are daily being added to the family of God and those who are leaving all to gather at the sound of His whistle.

“I will make them strong in the Lord, and they shall walk (go forth) in his name,” declares the Lord.” Zechariah‬ ‭10:12‬ ‭

There is a sound, a whistle, being released that is calling the family together. It is the sound of the glory of the Lord, the sound of oneness and the sound of the Bridegroom calling to His Bride. There is a response to His whistle coming forth! It releases the sound of an army marching in unison, shoulder to shoulder (without jostling one another). It is the sound of the lovesick bride that leaves her comfort to run after the Bridegroom. And it is the beautiful sight of an unbroken covenant that releases the oil that keeps the lamps of the wise virgins burning.

Let’s pray for those who have fallen away but even more, let us join the Lord’s “whistle” that calls the redeemed to gather and multiplies the sons and daughters. Let us call to the north, the south, the east and the west— let them go, do not hold them back!

“I will say to the north, ‘Give them up!’ and to the south, ‘Do not hold them back.’ Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the ends of the earth–“ Isaiah 43:6

This is a time of gathering the family to march as one army; carrying the glory of the Lord. He will have dominion from sea to sea, from the rivers to the ends of the earth and His people will walk as one with Him. They will stand as ambassadors, the government of God, to bring what is decreed in heaven into the earth.

Do you hear His whistle? Join in!

Dreams Are Coming True

Kathi Pelton

This week, before my eyes dreams that I never thought could come to pass have manifested before my eyes. They are dreams for a nation, dreams of seeing the oneness that Jesus prayed for in John 17:21-23 unfold, dreams for my personal family, and for the family of God, and the dream that God has for His glory to make us one! Please continue to read to the end because you will see how what is happening pertains to you!

Though I am an American, I have stood and walked with our neighbor, Canada, for many, many years. God told me that they carry a healing call that will restore nations, and if I would give myself to a nation that was not my own, I would, in turn, see my nation healed and restored. In the twenty years that my husband and I have walked with Canada we have seen things that were more amazing than words could describe, but the past ten years we watched all that we labored for in the nation seemingly overrun by divisions, broken relationships, and even what has seemed to be the enemy taking the land.

But this week, I have stood with my husband and most of my children in this land that I have given so much of my life for, and I have watched relationships restored, hearts turned back to one another, and humbled, surrendered vessels allowing their weaknesses to make a way for the strength of the Lord to do what we could not do! What we are experiencing is nothing short of miraculous! We are becoming ONE!

You may be wondering how this pertains to you? As I have been a part of this beautiful and overwhelming dream come to pass, the Lord said,

“Watch now! What is happening here has opened up rivers of restoration that will flow to many nations. My people will see that in the midst of their great weakness that I have come to make known the greatness of My strength! It was never about the strength of men but rather the surrender of men’s weakness to make room for My strength.”

You may feel beaten down, defeated, divided, and void of strength. But in that place humble yourself before the Lord and offer your brokenness and weakness to Him. Yield to see His strength made manifest in your weakness and depravity. We could never do what is about to be done out of our strength! It required an emptying for the sake of a pure filling.

I hear the verse from Hosea 6:1-3,

“ Come, let us return to the LORD; for he has torn us, that he may heal us; he has struck us down, and he will bind us up. After two days he will revive us; on the third day he will raise us up, that we may live before him. Let us know; let us press on to know the Lord; his going out is sure as the dawn; he will come to us as the showers, as the spring rains that water the earth.”

It is resurrection time! God has pruned us, He has allowed weakness for the sake of being emptied of so we might be filled with Him and the glory that He and the Father share. We will carry His glory and see our families, cities, and nations filled with glory! Do not let your weakness stop you for this has happened for the sake of seeing His strength made manifest!

Amen!

It Is Done!

by Kathi Pelton

This morning I woke up out of my sleep prophesying the words, “It is done!” I don’t recall what I was dreaming but it didn’t feel like a dream but rather the Spirit of the Lord prophesying over battles, over prayers, over people and over nations. As the words, “It is done!” came forth from my mouth I began to see the finished work of the cross that secured victory coming upon so many things. Then the words repeated again and again…”It is done, it is done, it is done….prophesy, IT IS DONE!”

I then began to prophesy over my natural family, over my spiritual family, over my city and my nation the words, “It is done!” I prophesied over the fight to end abortion, over the lost and into the atmosphere…It is done! As I prophesied these words, my faith began to rise and authority began to flow from deep within my spirit. The words contained the victory that Jesus obtained when He spoke the words, “It is finished!”

Whatever need you have, whatever battle you are facing, whatever loved one you are carrying and whatever prayer you are praying; I prophesy over that thing and over that person, “It is done!” Join with me and declare the victory and finished work that prophesies the victorious outcome.

Prophesy over the salvation of your sons and daughters, “It is done!” Prophesy over the full manifestation of provision for your personal needs, “It is done!” Prophesy over the battle for the lives of the unborn to be protected, “It is done!” Prophesy over areas of darkness that need the light of Jesus, “It is done!”

Stir up faith and let the words awaken you to reach in faith for the victory that was sealed in the words Jesus spoke when He said, “It is finished!” Death was swallowed up in victory and His words resound over you today just as clearly as they did two thousand years ago. Don’t hold back and don’t back down; let faith arise and let your mouth prophesy the victory!

An Amazing Dream I Had Last Night… “Blessed Assurance” or “Blessed Insurance”

by Kathi Pelton

I had a vivid but unusual dream last night. In the dream I was seeking to find an insurance policy that would cover my “faith”. I knew that my life was at a high risk point regarding what I was stepping into and wanted insurance in case something happened and we were left with losses. Suddenly a package arrived for me and I opened it; as soon as I held it in my hands I knew that it had sent from Jesus. When I opened it I found that it contained a scroll or rolled up document. As I unrolled it I saw writing on the header of this document that said, “Assurance Policy” It was an not an insurance policy but an assurance policy that gave me a written guarantee that my faith was being covered by His declaration of promised provision. I took it out and signed it before waking up. 
What an amazing dream! I was seeking “insurance” (a guaranteed compensation of loss) and He gave me “assurance” (a positive declaration intended to give confidence; a promise.). 
“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” Hebrews 11:1
The Greek word for assurance can be translated to mean “concrete”. It is the foundation or concrete proof of something we can stand upon. Therefore this “Assurance Policy” was my concrete proof or promise that there will not be a need for an insurance policy that compensates for loss. What a “blessed assurance” this dream was to me! 
Often, our view of loss and God’s view of loss differ. I was speaking to a group of young adults this week about the subject of God’s faithfulness and asked them if their definition of His faithfulness was based on what they think the outcome of a particular matter should look like. I gave the example of someone praying for a loved one who is ill and ends up dying. I asked them if the faithfulness of God remains true in the midst of what we would see as a great loss. They determined that, “Yes!” His faithfulness remains sure even when we don’t understand. 
I share this not to dampen the word of “assurance” but to break off of many the restraints and strongholds of disappointment that have come through defining His faithfulness by a particular outcome that may have measured His faithfulness. Let us declare and determine (over our past, our present and our future) that is faithfulness is immeasurable, irrevocable and irrefutable! 
“Your faithfulness extends to every generation, as enduring as the earth you created.” Psalm 119:90
Our faith is bound and secured by His faithfulness. His faithfulness is our “assurance policy” in the midst of all that we face and all that we experience. There are no losses with Christ because in Him there is eternal and immeasurable reward. He is worth every risk, every act of faith, every “Yes” spoken, every sacrifice made and every life lived fully unto Him. 
We do not need an insurance policy to back up our faith…we have been given  a “assurance policy” that declares a promise of His faithfulness from generation to generation. 
“God will repay each person according to what they have done.” Romans 2:6
We will receive a great and eternal reward for not holding back but giving our all. There are no losses…
“Walk in obedience to all that the Lord your God has commanded you, so that you may live and prosper and prolong your days in the land that you will possess.” Deuteronomy 5:33
I will end with the first stanza from the song, “Blessed Assurance”, 
Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine
O what a foretaste of glory divine
Heir of salvation, purchase of God
Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood

His Presence Changes Everything

by Kathi Pelton

What an amazing reality to know that when you wake up each morning that His presence is right there with you. Then, when you lay down at night He remains present— and in every moment throughout each day.

When I was a young believer and newly married I got up one morning to see my young husband prostate on the floor in prayer. I could tell that he was weeping and I was deeply moved by the tenderness in my husband’s heart. When he finally got up from the floor I looking at his tear stained face and said,

“Wow, you must have had a powerful time with Jesus!”

He shocked me because he responded by saying, “No, I wasn’t able to breakthrough into His presence.”

I stood before him utterly confused because I had read the verse from Deuteronomy 31:6-8 that says,

“Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.”

I had only been a believer a short time but I was sure that we didn’t have to “breakthrough into His presence!” Somewhere in my young husband’s sensitive conscience and desire to “be holy” he had come to believe that he had to work to gain access into the presence of God; the enemy was only too happy to convince him that he’d never done enough to arrive (thankfully, God set him free of that lie!).

We may have to “strive to enter into rest”; not because we have to earn it but because we have to train our souls to surrender to trust and peace; but His presence is with us always. He’s not absent, distant, mad or critical— He waits, watches and does not ever waver in His faithfulness to be with us always.

The knowledge that He is always with me and His Spirit (which is Him!) dwells within me changes everything. The God who spoke the entirety of creation into existence is with us always! There is nothing that you will go through or face alone. NOTHING!

“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.” Isaiah 43:2

You continually have all that you need because He is with you. Your comforter, deliverer, provider, protector, friend, warrior, counselor, teacher, helper, lover, King and Savior is present with you day and every night. Not because you did anything to earn it but because His death on the cross tore the veil that separated us. It is grace that opened up the way. He paid the full price for His presence to be opened up to us. We can boldly and confidently go before His throne!

I want to say it again…HIS PRESENCE CHANGES EVERYTHING!! He is before you, behind you and beside you. He’s been where you are going and He’s been where you have already gone.

I am continually in awe when I look back on my life at how at every turn He’s prepared the way for me. Of course I’ve faced my share of hard times and even seasons of deep grief, but He was always present to comfort me and make a way through the wilderness. The older I get the more I can look back on my own journey as a living testimony that declares, “He has never left me, nor forsaken me!”

I woke up today with such a tangible awareness of His presence with me and around me. It filled me with such expectation of wondering what He will do next— because everything changes in His presence!

“You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” Psalm 16:11

What amazing and unfathomable thing will He surprise us with today? Yesterday He surprised dear friends of ours with a testimony that left me in such awe! When I heard the testimony of what God did, I wanted to run into the arms of Jesus and embrace Him for being so very good and faithful. His faithfulness toward them overflowed onto me like a flood of joy.

He is with you and in His presence is joy (Ps. 16:11) , peace and rest (Ex. 33:14), refreshing (Acts 3:20-21), help (John14:26), wisdom and instruction (Ps. 25:5-9), mercy and grace (Heb. 4:16), salvation (Zep. 3:17), justice (Ps. 37:5-6), fruitfulness (Jer. 17:7-8)…and so much more!

Release His presence into all that is around you…and watch as it changes everything.

You Will Prosper and Abound

By Kathi Pelton

Each Friday I write a prayer and declaration for a ministry organization that we are a part of. Today, as I wrote the declaration, I felt to share it with you as well.

God is dealing with the opposition and resistance that has come against His people. He is giving you a “spirit of overcoming” as you stand firm in His Word as absolute truth. Put all doubt, fear and unbelief under your feet and declare the words below. Break the cycles of wavering between two opinions according to circumstances and stand firm and unwavering upon His truth and promises. Often the open doors that allows the “thief” to in come is a door of doubt. God is a god of abundance and we are being asked to close and lock the doors of doubt and wavering about His goodness.

Here is the prayer and declaration for you. Declare it everyday until you have overcome and until it repairs the gaps in wall around your life. It’s time to fortify the walls of truth that guard you.

Prayer and Declaration

“And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.” 2 Corinthians 9:8

“ I prophesy out of 2 Corinthians 9:8, declaring that God’s abundant blessings will manifest upon me and my family. I say with confident assurance that me, my family and my household will have all that we need at all times. We will lack no good thing and the work of the Kingdom will not be hindered or thwarted by the opposition that comes in the form of lack.

The Spirit is speak saying that He will prosper my “Yes!” I say yes to Him once again and I say “Yes and amen” to His promise to prosper my “yes.”

I break all agreements with thoughts, expectation and fears of lack, doubt and poverty. I enter into the confident faith and assurance that God will abundantly bless me and my household with all that we need in each season so that we abound in every good work.

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” Philippians 4:6

I come to you Father right now, in both prayer and petition, bringing my requests for financial provision and supernatural resources, so that we all abound in every good work. I thank you that the promised provision of abundant blessings in all that I need is being made manifest even now. I also bring my prayers and petitions on behalf of every Kingdom work being done in the body of Christ before you. Thank you that the work will prosper and abound; lacking nothing but prospering in response to every yes! You are good and forever faithful to keep your promise and to bless the work of our hands. Thank you Father for your Son, for making us heirs of salvation and for being our help in times of trouble. -Amen-

Now go forth in praise and thanksgiving, knowing that He is the God of more than enough. You will overcome the cycles of wavering, doubt and lack. You will walk and live in the abundant life promised to you in John 10:10!

Fix Your Gaze and Step Into Freedom

by Kathi Pelton

Last night a group of seven of us went to a very oppressed area of downtown Portland to do a prayer-walk (we’ve been prayer walking this area for the past six months). Though we had a very effectual night with amazing breakthrough, what our eyes had to look upon could grieve even the hardest heart. There were so many lives snared in the net of demonic oppression and addiction. Yet, as we stood on a particularly dark corner one of our team members said that the song, Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus, was running through his mind the whole night but the word “turn” was changed to “fix.” We all stood in the midst of the darkness (even people screaming at us) and began to sing,

Fix your eyes upon Jesus, Look full in His wonderful face

And the things of earth will grow strangely dim

In the light of His glory and grace…

As we sang, prayed and declared we watched as the things of earth grew dim. We fixed our gaze on the beauty of Jesus and the darkness was dispelled in the midst of His light. From that point on we had miraculous breakthroughs that we had been praying for over many months.

I share this testimony with you because the change and freedom came when we “fixed our gaze upon Jesus” in the midst of darkness.

“I have asked one thing from the Lord; it is what I desire: to dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, gazing on the beauty of the Lord and seeking [Him] in His temple.” Psalm 27:4

As we fixed our gaze upon His beauty the darkness around us began to tremble. There were physical and natural happenings that we witnessed in response to the light and beauty being brought into the midst of darkness and depravity. We honestly stood in awe at what we witnessed last night because it was supernatural.

Though we shouldn’t have been surprised, honestly we were greatly shocked and surprised at the turn of events. I should know this truth well because in my personal life I strive to continually “fix my gaze” on Jesus and His beauty day and night. The sight of Him and “dwelling in His temple” has become my refuge and my fortress.

When trials or storms come, fixing my gaze upon Him becomes the place where my perspective is aligned with truth and victory. Fixing my eyes upon His beauty lifts me out of the circumstance that seek to “steal my gaze.” It lifts me from the captivity of fear into the freedom of the finished work of Christ.

If you are going through a storm and all you can see is the wind and waves, then now is the time to turn your eyes upon Jesus and fix your gaze upon His beauty. It will not only lift you above the storm but it will also calm the storm.

Often we empower storms or assignments sent against us when we fix our focus on them. The enemy seeks to steal our gaze and our light through darkness and fear. When this happens, we actually become a force that strengthens the storm rather than calms the storm. As you refocus your gaze upon Jesus it releases His power to calm the storm and moves you into freedom.

“For all creation, gazing eagerly as if with outstretched neck, is waiting and longing to see the manifestation of the sons of God.” Romans 8:19

As we fixed our gaze on Jesus last night we saw creation respond. Creation was waiting for the sons and daughters of God to arrive on the scene in a place where darkness was given dominion. Though there is still much work to do, we found that as we fixed our gaze upon His beauty and released what we saw, the mountains trembled and demons began to flee. Light dispels darkness, beauty transforms depravity, love overcomes hate! This works in our personal lives as well as in our cities and nations.

If you need freedom from oppression and circumstances that have left you captive; turn your gaze! Refocus your attention and your eyes upon His beauty and watch as peace comes upon you and the storm is stilled. Your perspective will change but circumstances will shift as well.

Fix your gaze and watch freedom come!

Draw Near

By Kathi Pelton

I hear the Lord’s whispering to His Bride today saying, “Will you draw near to Me?”

Life pulls at us to give our time, energy and focus to everything but stillness. It truly is the greatest wrestle for people. Taking time daily to be still and draw near to God is immediately met with a battle of distraction in the mind and heart.

I often begin my “drawing near time” by praying out of Philippians 4:7,

“Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.

His peace comes to guard my heart and mind from distraction so that I can draw near.

“Draw near to God and He will draw near to you…” James 4:8(a)

To draw near to someone takes intentionality. When I was a young mom in ministry, I had to set days aside to draw near to my children, to my husband and to my source of life, Jesus.

There was the constant “need of others” vying for my time and attention. It took time and a maturing process but I had to learn that I was not other’s “Savior” and that when I drew away from the crowds to draw near to God or my family, I was not neglecting or abandoning the call of God upon my life or my commitment to others.

There were times that I faced criticism and judgements when I drew back but even Jesus knew when to leave the crowds to draw near to His Father or to His family (the disciples).

A number of months ago I heard the Lord calling me to “come away with Him to draw near to Him for an extended time.” It was at a time that my entire family was leaving to go to an important family event in another state. I wrestled with the invitation to “draw near” because I knew that this time with our extended family was a once in a lifetime experience. But the Spirit was persistent and continued to whisper an invitation to “stay behind and draw near to Him.”

Finally, I spoke with my family and they quickly blessed me to stay behind. When they drove away I went directly to my bedroom with my Bible and my journal to lay down on the floor to draw near to God.

Over the next three days God drew near to me in deep, constant intimacy. As I accepted His invitation to draw near to Him, He drew near to me with profound presence, amazing affections, deep intercession, refreshing and renewal. This time truly reset my life and my intimacy with Him.

The same is true with my husband and children. I tend to be very “single focused” and yet my life is always juggling a hundred different things. When I am doing a task it usually gets all of my attention and focus. This can be a good trait but for my family, who also needs my attention, it can be challenging. My kids (who are all young adults now) have taken to calling me by my full name (rather than Mom) when they can’t get my attention. When I hear the name, “Kathleen” by one of my kids it somehow jolts me out of my ultra focused state and back onto them.

I never want Jesus to have to work hard to get my attention off the work of the Kingdom and back onto the King.

Intimacy is forged as we get still and draw near. I am a very early riser because it is in the quiet of the dawn that I draw near to Him. Yet even then I must be intentional to not allow distractions to draw my mind and heart away.

 “…fixing our attention on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of the faith, who, in view of the joy set before him, endured the cross, disregarding its shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:2

We must take time to fix our attention on Jesus. We are being invited to draw near and give our undivided attention and affections to the One who gave His all for us.

“If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.”

Colossians 3:1-3

It is vital to set our minds upon Jesus and intentionally devote time to drawing near to Him. It is then that you will find that He draws near to you in ways that sustain you, renew you, refresh you and draw you into abundant living.

He’s whispering an invitation to you, “Will you draw near to Me today?”

As you say yes, know that He will draw near to you!

Important Update!

Dear Ministry Friends & Partners,

First, thank you all for standing with us, praying for us and supporting us in all that the Lord has asked us to do and the places He has asked us to go. It truly takes a “family” and you are that to us!

Our ministry and family has entered a time of great acceleration where we are seeing our young adult children sent out like arrows shot forth from our quiver. Dreams and prophetic words that we have carried for decades are suddenly coming upon us and upon our children.

God has put a deep call and longing in our hearts throughout the years to walk with the younger generation; to see them thrive in the midst of family. We live this out in our immediate family and with our spiritual sons and daughters locally, nationally and internationally.

Jeffrey and I have expanded our walk with the younger generation as we partner with the Awaken the Dawn movement (http://www.awakenthedawn.org/). This is a company and family of amazing Levite’s (musicians, prayer leaders and sold-out sons and daughters) that have given their “Yes” to the Lord to make the worth of Jesus known throughout our nation while hosting His presence in different states and cities. We are stepping in to carry the baton with them and to disciple them as they run. It is the fathers and mothers and sons and daughters running together as one family.

We will continue to be a part of our global team that is walking with many nations to see God’s family joined in the unity and oneness that Jesus prayed for in John 17:20-23. We also will continue to be the young adults pastors to our “Third Watch” young adults team here in Portland, Oregon that is part of the city transformation and focusing on Portland State University’s reformation.

Lastly, we will continue to encourage the body of Christ through our writings, prophesy, teachings and books. Inscribing the vision is one of our greatest passions.

Due to all that God is opening up before us, our travel schedule has increased immensely in this season. This has also increased our need for prayer and financial partners who will commit to support us on a monthly basis.

We would like to invite you to be a part of our ministry family by becoming a financial partner with us.

We need to raise an additional $4000 per month to cover travel expenses, ministry expenses and personal expenses as we give our full focus to the work of the Kingdom.

We are now preparing to have two months of continual travel throughout North America. We will be going to Idaho, Utah, Montana, Boston, Vermont, Ottawa (Canada), Washington DC, Virginia and further between now and September. If you would like to sow into this extended trip, we would be so very grateful.

If you believe in what we are doing and would like to become a ministry partner through prayer and monthly financial support; go to: https://www.inscribeministries.com/

You can set up an automatic monthly payment through pressing our donation button on the homepage. You can also write to us at: admin@inscribeministries.com to let us know that you have committed to partner with us.

We commit to pray for you and your loved ones. We will host quarterly ZOOM calls with our supporters so that we truly become “family” and can pray with you.

Thank you for your love and “yes” to Jesus! He has spoken to me clearly in this season by saying that He is “Prospering His people’s, ‘YES’.” We say, “Yes!”

With Love and Gratitude, Jeffrey & Kathi Pelton

It’s Always Darkness Before The Dawn…Breakthrough Is Coming!

By Kathi Pelton

“My soul yearns for you in the night, and in the morning my spirit searches and looks out for you” Isaiah 26:9

Are you facing a darkness that has left you without sight or light? Throughout my life I have often found that right before the dawn breaks through, the darkness will appear as though it will swallow me alive. I have also learned through those dark moments to stand on the truth that I know rather than on what I see (or in those moments…what I can’t see!).

We often throw around these little quotes such as, It’s always darkest before the dawn.” or “The end is merely signaling your new beginning.” after we’ve come through the darkness. But if you are standing in the midst of the darkest hour, I’d like to encourage you to make that place a holy place. Allow the yearning of your soul in the dark night to become the sound of surrender. Cry out to the One who is the Light of the World and in the midst of the darkness declare that you have been given a great light.

Rather than let the darkness swallow you, let the light of Christ swallow the darkness. The times in life that leave you standing in the dark can become the most holy moments as you learn to declare His faithfulness and goodness in the face of opposing circumstances. As you declare the truth of who He is and offer the worship that He is due, the darkness suddenly becomes swallowed up in victory.

“Death is swallowed up in victory.” “

O death, where is your victory? O death where is your sting?”” 1 Corinthians 15:55

What if you replace the word death with darkness? Surely darkness is swallowed up in victory when we declare His glorious goodness and light.

Some of my greatest victories have been won in my darkest hours. As I learned to allow His light to shine forth in the darkness, I was given victory over the power of darkness that was seeking to swallow me up. It is time to gain victory over the power that darkness has had over you!

I waited patiently for the Lord; he inclined to me and heard my cry. He drew me up from the pit of destruction, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure. He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many will see and fear, and put their trust in the Lord.” Psalm 40:1-3

The dawn will come and it will illuminate the testimony of Jesus that was forged in the darkness! Just like in Daniel 3 when Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego walked in the fire and came forth victorious; so will you!

Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego came out from the fire. And the satraps, the prefects, the governors, and the king’s counselors gathered together and saw that the fire had not had any power over the bodies of those men. The hair of their heads was not singed, their cloaks were not harmed, and no smell of fire had come upon them. Daniel 3:26-27

The power of darkness will not have consumed you, singed you nor harmed you because you know that the Light of the World is standing there with you. Just like the smell of fire was not found upon these three who walked in the flames, neither will despair, depression or hopelessness come upon you as you recognize that you are not alone in the darkness…for there is another standing with you and there is NO darkness in Him!

Now is the time to raise your hallelujah! Yes, right in the midst of the darkness and in the presence of your enemy. That is when you raise your voice and sing a little louder until you see the darkness flee. The power of the cross will swallow up the power of darkness!

The dawn of victory is about to rise. Let the light of the new day reveal the testimony of Jesus that is being formed in the darkness, while no one is looking. Let darkness hear the sound of your victory song and see the dance of the overcomer. Darkness can not withstand the light…so let your light shine.

This just might be your finest hour!
