Learning to Fight for Your Promised Land
“So, we say that this is a season where we’re going to have to go to war if we’re going to get into our Promised Land. Looking at the biblical symbolism of taking your Promised Land, when the children of Israel crossed the Jordan, there were all kinds of tests and things they had to do. They didn’t just stand on the Promised Land and say, ‘Well, here I am!’ and all the giants ran away, and all the problems ran away. No, they had to fight for it.
“This is a season where we’re going to have to go to war to come into our reset and our blessings and our purpose. But don’t let that make you afraid. Just learn how to go to war ─ it’s very important. We need to know how to navigate in prayer and deal with the powers of darkness coming against us. We need to go back and re-teach those things that we taught many years ago. One of the things that my generation should do is teach the next generation what we know, and my generation knew how to go to war.” (Cindy Jacobs)
“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.” (Ephesians 6:12; ESV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
- Tell the Lord how badly you want to see what He has promised to you.
- Declare how much you want to see His promises to your city, state, and this nation come to pass.
- Congressman Louie Gohmert recently said, “Many Christians lean on their shovel and pray for a hole.” There are times when the Lord wants you to do something toward the answer of your prayers. Say, “Here I am, Lord. Send me!”
- Brush up on spiritual warfare. Read all the warfare passages of the Bible. Ask Holy Spirit to teach you. Read books on the topic like Intercessory Prayer and Possessing the Gates of the Enemy.
- Think about those in your circle of influence who are younger than you. What about Believers who are newer to the Kingdom? Do you know something about spiritual warfare that you can teach them? Make a plan to do it. Use technology – conference calls or video-chat services, like Zoom, Periscope, etc. Don’t hesitate! Put the word out!
A prayer you can pray:
Lord, this is the year I am taking the promises You have given me very seriously. It is time for those things to become reality! You have said it is the year, so I will stir up my faith to believe it. I declare that Your promises over my life and my family are coming to pass (name them). I declare that the promises You have made to my city are manifesting this year. My state is going to line up with prophetic words spoken over it. The United States of America has had numerous Words given and many are manifesting now. I will decree them again as if they have already come to pass. (Google some or search Elijahlist to find those words and decree them!)
Lord, I want to be an answer, not just an intercessor. I want feet put to my prayers. Here I am. Send me. What would You have me to do? As I remind myself of the principles of spiritual warfare, show me who I can take along on that journey. Who can war alongside me? Who can I teach? What is our assignment? Give me Your plan and make the way clear for me to accomplish it. I am willing to learn new things, like how to use certain technology, so I can equip someone else. Thank You, Jesus, for Your leading, guiding and directing. Amen.
The older will teach the younger, and we will war together to secure our nation in Him!
