Let me just start with this ... I don't know what folks who don't have Holy Spirit do in tough times. Well, I do know because back in 2007 when big warfare came to me, I failed because I couldn't hear or see what the Spirit was saying and doing. Makes me wanna pray for people. I feel for anyone who doesn't know what's going on in the world or their lives in this season.
I've been in constant warfare - one battle after another - for the last 3 weeks. God has broken through each time because I haven't fallen for the enemy's schemes. I've run to Dad each time and didn't bad mouth, go off on anyone or allow discouragement to set in.
I received a new invitation to battle just a few moments ago, after winning a victory at 2:05 a.m. (so less than 12 hours later, I have to suit up again to fight). Both this battle and the one I just finished involved other women's actions or words against me; and both times the enemy was whispering in my ear curses to speak/release over them/to accuse them of should knowing and behaving better as believers. Well, that's not God's way, and I already know that I'm up for promotion which is why the warfare is so heavy.
Wisdom for us:
1. Don't run from the battle. Especially at this year end because promotions are being handed out from heaven [there's a podcast ep on this].
2. Watch your mouth. Do not curse another, and especially not someone anointed for the work of the Kingdom. It's better to stay silent than release a curse because that's a handshake of covenant with the enemy to hurt you and them.
3. You need to stay in prayer and the Word so that you don't get caught slippin'. That's what the enemy is hoping for - that you're not paying attention and accidentally come into agreement with them.
The awesome thing about having to pray so much is the revelation that's coming down. When you remain in a heavenly atmosphere you can't help but pick up what's being spoken and prepared there. Not only that I've served as a testimony to my son and several others because I've stayed calm through it all. My kiddo actually asked me, "How do you stay calm?" so I was able to tell him it's the peace that passes all understanding as well as the angel on my left telling me to "tread lightly, watch my tongue, etc."
It is written: He commands His angels to keep charge of me in all my ways.
Great grace to you in Jesus' name.
