It Begins With a Fresh Love of the Word
The Lord is watching us. He is pulling something Divine out of each one of us. He is asking us to give in a new way. He is asking us to line up with the Word of God in a new way. He is asking us to love it, to eat it, to preach it as if it is new. Holy Spirit is breathing a new wind on it. Fiery preachers will come from their closets where they have been interceding and they will come with a Word and deliver it with fire. Hearts will be convicted. No one will be able to escape the words or hide from their effect. Altars will fill. Weeping and wailing will spring forth from the conviction of hearts. People will rise up in righteous indignation and demand to receive back what the enemy has stolen from them. They will ask for relationships back, finances back, careers back, property back, and prodigals back. The nation will shift as these militant ones make demands and decrees against the enemy. This is the new spiritual warfare in which we will engage. The pastors will shift. The Body will shift. The nation will shift. Some things will go back to the way they were meant to be. Some things will change completely. Nothing will look the same, but when the dust settles, we will have our Christian roots back. We will be that nation set on a hill that sends the Gospel to the whole earth from these shores. God’s heavenly mandate given at Plymouth Rock can still come to pass!
“The grass withers, the flower fades: but the word of our God shall stand forever.” (Isaiah 40:8; NKJV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
- Repent if you haven’t been in love with His Word and/or haven’t been reading it.
- Get your Bible out and ask Holy Spirit where He would like you to read.
- Intercede along the lines of what you have just read.
- Write out a verse form that section of scripture and commit to study it, memorize it, and apply it to your life. Ask Jesus to let His Word change you.
- Declare, “The words in this Bible will change me. They will change my circumstances. I will see things around me change, even my prodigals come home. I will see promises come to pass that God gave this nation at its inception.”
A prayer you can pray:
“Lord, we pray for the pastors in this nation. We need the pulpits to thunder truth like never before. They need to hear Truth and begin to declare it. They need to go into their pulpits with truth bathed in intercession, that will go forth into the pews, so it will raise up an army. Let them say, ‘The B-I-B-L-E, yes, that’s the Book for me. We stand alone on the Word of God, the B-I-B-L-E.’ As we begin to take back what the devil has stolen, that we will begin to turn this nation back to its Judeo-Christian roots. We declare it shall happen. It will take place. Our eyes will see it. We will behold Your Glory over this nation. We will be one nation – one Christian nation – under God. Whether people want to admit it or not, this will be, once again, a Christian nation. We are the nation ‘in whom God we trust.’ We are the nation on a hill that will not be hidden. Your Gospel will go forth from here, because an awakening is taking place and manifesting. We release it. Let it flow. Now, raise up Your voices. Give the Church Your prophetic voice. It is coming. It is arising in Jesus’ name. Amen.” (Mark Gonzales, Hispanic Action Network)
Falling in love with God’s Word again will cause His heavenly mandate given at Plymouth Rock to come to pass!
