A Decree Over Your Life

Kathi Pelton

Today I decree over you the prayer of agreement that aligns with the original intent of Jesus Christ for your life. May it now be brought forth in you and your true identity be set in place.

May the perfect love that caused Him to shed His precious blood permeate your body, soul and spirit and cause every chain to fall away and every lie to be washed away.

I declare life, blessings, abundance, favor, health and wholeness over you today. May everything that pertains to you now come into alignment with the truth and victory of Jesus Christ.

Together we declare, “Holy is the Lord who resurrects us just as He was resurrected. May we become the inheritance that He rightly deserves.”

Amen~

The Sound of God’s Answer

Kathi Pelton

(Day 11 of 40: The Yielding)

As I took time to hear from the Lord this morning, what I heard surprised me. I heard a sound that was loud and roared with fierce passion. It was strong like ocean waves breaking over the shore and loud like the sound of thunder on a stormy night. I asked the Spirit what the sound was and He answered,

“It is the sound of the Father arising to answer the cries of distress that come from His children.”

Then I was led to Psalm 18,

“The LORD thundered from heaven; the voice of the Most High resounded. He shot his arrows and scattered the enemy, with great bolts of lightning he routed them. The valleys of the sea were exposed and the foundations of the earth laid bare at your rebuke, LORD, at the blast of breath from your nostrils.” Psalm‬ ‭18:13-15‬

As we have been yielding to this deep work that the Lord is doing within us, the enemy rages against this mighty work of grace. If you have experienced a warfare against your life or your family during this time then know that the Father is arising to answer your cry and once again rebuke the enemy,

“The LORD said to Satan, “The LORD rebuke you, Satan! The LORD, who has chosen Jerusalem, rebuke you! Is not this man a burning stick snatched from the fire?”” ‭‭Zechariah‬ ‭3:2‬ ‭

As we yield each day we are being changed; renewed in mind and spirit. Our deepest thoughts and subtle agreements with the Accuser are being removed causing us to be clothed in oneness of spirit with Christ (1 Corinthians 6:17). Though this terrifies the enemy, it provokes the jealous love of God to arise with the sound of protection and power of His hand to defend His people.

“In my distress I called to the LORD; I cried to my God for help. From his temple he heard my voice; my cry came before him, into his ears. The earth trembled and quaked, and the foundations of the mountains shook; they trembled because he was angry. Smoke rose from his nostrils; consuming fire came from his mouth, burning coals blazed out of it. He parted the heavens and came down; dark clouds were under his feet. He mounted the cherubim and flew; he soared on the wings of the wind. He made darkness his covering, his canopy around him— the dark rain clouds of the sky. Out of the brightness of his presence clouds advanced, with hailstones and bolts of lightning.” Psalm‬ ‭18:6-12‬ ‭

The Lord is our defender, protector, provider and a shield around us. As we stand before Him as yielded ones, allowing this great work of grace to transform us once again, He defends us and watches over the work of His hands. He guards us in all of our ways.

“As for God, his way is perfect: The LORD’s word is flawless; he shields all who take refuge in him. For who is God besides the LORD? And who is the Rock except our God? It is God who arms me with strength and keeps my way secure.”

Psalm‬ ‭18:30-32‬ ‭

I encourage you to read through Psalm 18 on this 11th day of “The Yielding”. We enter into thanksgiving and praise for who He is and all that He has done for us.

“The LORD lives! Praise be to my Rock! Exalted be God my Savior!” Psalm‬ ‭18:46‬

Release the Sound of Reformation


Kathi Pelton

As I prayed for our nation and for the nations I heard the Spirit say,

“I’m taking back the sound!” 

Then He went on to say,

“The sound of the ‘resounding gong’ will cease and be stilled as the sound of My love is released into the land, the people and the atmosphere. Release the sound of the height, depth and width of My love. It is the sound that stills the storms and brings forth peace.”

“I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God. Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.”

‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭3:16-20‬ ‭

Yesterday at our church God was releasing a word about walking as “friends of God”. As this word was released I began to see the Church not only walk with the voice of truth but they took the hand of Truth (The Way, the Truth and the Life) and walked in friendship with Him. I saw it reversing historic divisions and restoring relationships between families, people groups and nations. It was changing a sound within the fabric of cities and nations.

Many of our forefathers brought truth without love which became like the sound of a resounding gong or a hammer that strikes the heart and wounds it. Watch now, a love reformation has begun. 

“If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn’t love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn’t love others, I would be nothing. If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing.”

‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭13:1-3‬ 

Sacrifice apart from love results in loss, truth apart from love is merely knowledge and prophecy apart from love is only a loud noise. But love is found in intimacy and intimacy begins with friendship. We must be friends with God in order to discover the love spoken of in Ephesians 3. 

Most healthy marriages I know began in friendship. If they skipped that formative step then they usually had to return to that place and develop it in order to experience true intimacy. Walking hand in hand together is where friendship is developed. There is a closeness of spending time together, sharing hearts, listening and journeying together that creates intimacy. 

And so it happened just as the Scriptures say: “Abraham believed God, and God counted him as righteous because of his faith.” He was even called the friend of God.

James 2:23

I have a friend that I have walked closely with for 35 years now. We dated our husbands at the same time, we married the same year, we raised our children together (we were even at their births), we walked through celebrations, losses, joys and pain together. We are very different people but we walked as sisters in deep friendship which resulted in intimacy and love. We committed to friendship even at times when our family lived in another nation. It was a commitment that was founded in friendships and kept in the bounds of love. Though we are very different we share one thing that is the same…love.

Just like marriage, friendship requires agreement and commitment. Agreement to stand together and walk hand in hand even when it is tough. This is the love that needs to be seen and heard in the land and experienced in hearts. 

“Many waters cannot quench love, nor can rivers drown it. If a man tried to buy love with all his wealth, his offer would be utterly scorned.” 

Songs of Solomon 8:7

Now is the time to take the outstretched hand of Jesus and walk in friendship. Love is the sound and language that all men understand and it will birth unity, intimacy and dispel fear.

Love is the defining “sound of reformation”! Reformation means making changes to something with the intention of setting it back on the right path. As we recognize the 500 year anniversary on October 31st of the great reformation we need to understand that God is doing it again. This reformation will carry a sound and that sound will be the height, depth and width of His love.

Take His hand, be like Abraham and walk with God as a friend. Let love grow, mature and release the sound of love. 

“Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. Prophecy and speaking in unknown languages and special knowledge will become useless. But love will last forever!”

‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭13:4-8‬ ‭

The Power of Agreement

Kathi Pelton

Agreement is a powerful tool in both earthly and heavenly matters. Agreement is the vehicle by which ideas become legally binding and differences are reconciled.

The dictionary defines agreement in this way:

Agreement:

1. Harmony or accordance in opinion or feeling; a position or result of agreeing.

2. A negotiated and typically legally binding arrangement between parties as to a course action.

3. The absence of incompatibility between two things; consistency.

The power of agreement has resulted in treaties that were signed, covenants made and unions formed. Throughout the Bible we read about agreements that resulted in treaties and covenants. Scripture is quite clear about how much God honors agreement between two parties.

Matthew 18:19-20

“Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.”

Agreement About You

If there is so much power in the agreement between two people on Earth, just think about how much power there is when you come into agreement with the spiritual realm, whether with God, or with the enemy.

Our family spent a number of years being a home for foster teens and we’ve walked with deeply wounded young people. Along life’s journey these teenagers came into agreement that they were “less than” or “worthless”. This agreement became their belief which then allowed their lives to be defined by tragedy and loss. 

Somewhere deep inside they knew that the message of being worthless was not true, yet life had beaten that demonic lie into the fabric of their identity. The enemy had used the events in their lives as proof of the lie, creating agreement between them and the demonic agenda that was being.

One of the enemy’s greatest strategies is to get one of God’s amazing creations to agree with an identity that is different than the one that He gave to them. The enemy takes great pleasure in setting up scenarios that give proof to his lies. Demons love to hang out with hurting and disillusioned people to speak lies about their identity. If he can get them to agree with his lies, then power is released creating legal authority or a contractual agreement to go forward with his plans of destruction.

Has this ever happened to you or someone you love? Have you ever come into agreement with the demonic voices that want to convince you that you are not who God has said you are? Have you spoken words like, “I am so stupid”, “My life stinks”…or even worse? Those are agreements with the enemy that release power and a basis for accusation and harassment.

Breaking Demonic Agreements

There is good news if you have agreed with the enemy about your life or the life of someone else. YOU CAN BREAK THAT AGREEMENT.

It is not too late to change the course of your life and remove every legal right that this agreement has secured. You can go before the Righteous Judge and ask forgiveness for this agreement, renounce the agreement, break the power of the legal right and then come into agreement with truth and justice on your behalf and on behalf of others.

The Mercy Seat of God is open to you. The blood of Jesus will both cleanse and renew you. He purchased you with His own blood, and has triumphed over every evil power and all accusations against you. The power of His Spirit will set you free from any alliances you have made with lies against your true identity.

In Isaiah 30, God speaks about His people being deceived into entering into an alliance with a plan of the enemy, because they had not asked His counsel, that they might know His truth.

Isaiah 30:1-5

Ah, stubborn children,” declares the LORD, “who carry out a plan, but not mine, and who make an alliance, but not of my Spirit, that they may add sin to sin; who set out to go down to Egypt, without asking for my direction, to take refuge in the protection of Pharaoh and to seek shelter in the shadow of Egypt!

Therefore shall the protection of Pharaoh turn to your shame, and the shelter in the shadow of Egypt to your humiliation. For though his officials are at Zoan and his envoys reach Hanes, everyone comes to shame through a people that cannot profit them, that brings neither help nor profit, but shame and disgrace.”

Drop down to verse 18, and read of God’s desire to intervene on their behalf.

“Therefore the LORD waits to be gracious to you, and therefore he exalts himself to show mercy to you. For the LORD is a God of justice; blessed are all those who wait for him.”

It is time to allow the Lord to be gracious to you and restore you. His justice flows to those who make His truth the only agreement and alliance that they enter into.

Agreeing with Truth

Isaiah 30 goes on to list the results you will see when you break the alliance with every demonic lie and come into agreement with His truth and His ways.

Isaiah 30:23-26

And he will give rain for the seed with which you sow the ground, and bread, the produce of the ground, which will be rich and plenteous. In that day your livestock will graze in large pastures, and the oxen and the donkeys that work the ground will eat seasoned fodder, which has been winnowed with shovel and fork. And on every lofty mountain and every high hill there will be brooks running with water, in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall. Moreover, the light of the moon will be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun will be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day when the LORD binds up the brokenness of his people, and heals the wounds inflicted by his blow.

The Lord says to us, “This is the way, walk in it” (verse 21).

Walk in truth! Agree with truth! Speak truth! Who does the LORD say you are? Who does He say the person standing next to you is? Agree with that identity, even if the enemy wants to give “proof” of the opposite in this visible world. It is time for us to agree with the truth of the unseen and bring it down to Earth. There is power in agreement. When you agree with the truth of the Lord it releases the power of the Spirit. You agree with the legal right of Heaven to come to Earth. When you bring another into this agreement along with you it releases even more power.

I encourage you today to break all alliances and agreements with lies and to enter into truth. You are amazing, you are brilliant, you are loved and of great value. Wait for the Lord for He will restore all things as you come into agreement with His truth and walk in it.

Jeremiah 29:11

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Say Amen and come into agreement with what God says today!

The Power of Agreement

Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven.  For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.”

Agreement About You

If there is so much power in the agreement between two people on Earth, just think about how much power there is when you come into agreement with the spiritual realm, whether with God, or with the enemy.

My husband and I spent many years doing foster care. Most of our foster kids were teenage boys who had been neglected, abused and abandoned. As horrible as many of the events were in these boys’ pasts, there was an even more tragic event that permeated their lives. The day they came into agreement with the voices of evil that pursued them is where their lives took the most tragic turn.

On more than one occasion when one of our boys had been “triggered” (upset emotionally by some word or deed) causing them to rage against their existence, I would put my arms around them and repeat over and over, “This is not who you are! This is not who you are!”

Somewhere deep inside they knew that the message of being worthless was not true, yet life had beaten that demonic message into the fabric of their identity. The enemy had used the events in their lives as proof of the lie, creating agreement between them and the demonic agenda that was being played out.

One of the enemy’s greatest strategies is to get one of God’s amazing creations to agree with an identity that is different than the one that He gave to them. The enemy takes great pleasure in setting up scenarios that give proof to his lies. Demons love to hang out with hurting and disillusioned people to speak lies about their identity.  If he can get them to agree with his lies, then power is released creating legal authority to validate this lie as truth in their life.

Has this ever happened to you or someone you love? Have you ever come into agreement with the demonic voices that want to convince you that you are not who God has said you are? Have you spoken words like, “I am so stupid”, “My life stinks”…or even worse? Those are agreements with the enemy that release power and a basis for accusation and harassment.
