Dominion Rising

So, you’ve learned to love God above all else, and chose to walk in honor above lesser things. You’ve discerned and forgiven and risen along the way. You’ve receive God’s revelations as His wisdom. You’ve grown and matured. You’ve guarded your heart against evil and set healthy boundaries. You are the repentant and the redeemed. The learned and the obedient. You are the ones who stood their ground for God. You know whose you are. You hearken to your Shepherd’s voice.

Through it all, you’ve learned that God did you a favor. Now you’re rising like beauty from ashes. And because you didn’t settle in bitterness and despair, you are being seated in an outward expression of restoration—a whole new place: The manifestation of your heart’s desire.

It has felt like a long time coming. Pretty much your whole life. But you hung in there. You waited upon The Lord and believed He wouldn’t disappoint you. You took hold of His perfect rope of hope and kept moving toward the vision He gave you—the one you’ve held in your heart.

And now it’s right before you—His promise of fulfillment by our Hope of Glory, God Himself. The only One who can bring it to pass. The only One who can get you there.

Friends, as we move more into this season of harvest, we will find that whatever we have allowed to predominate our hearts will manifest. In other words, we will reap what we have sown. And, hopefully, that’s God’s best.

God is repositioning His glory carriers to new places in new roles to reveal Himself mightily. These are His people who live submitted lives unto Him, not the hateful unresolved ones—the self-centered strife-stirrers. No, not the immature self-justified imposers, who live their way in God’s way.

After all, how can God use condemnation to share His love, honor and glory to nations?

These wiser, blessed ones are those who willingly receive God’s perspective and attitude. They are the ones who receive God’s vision and plan for their assignments. The ones who sync with God—spirit, soul and body. They are the ones who walk in His powerful anointing and boldness unafraid, knowing God is with them.

And they see miracles.

The enemy is under their feet. They are his biggest threat as they walk on Holy ground with Jesus. Jesus has given them the land, because they have made Him their greatest dominion of heart in all things.

Is this you?

If so, God has prepared you for some major shifts ahead. He is bringing you into your greatest heart’s desires. He has been all along, only now you will see them manifest.

Holy Spirit will help you live out what He has put in you every step of the way. You will be delightfully set free from old ties, as former things that God once used to develop you fall away. As you live in a greater measure of restoration, some important relationships will be renewed full circle. New wine will flow to you, through you and all around you.

God will add new people who will come alongside you. He will reveal them to you, just as He revealed the ones who couldn’t remain with you. Your burden is light and bright as you experience God’s fullness of joy through His promises fulfilled. He will reveal more specifics to you as you enter in and build with Him.

Holy Spirit is for you and will never leave you. You can trust Him throughout. He will amaze you as you continue to abide with Him and receive His best life. Fruit will abound and joy will resound. Awesome wonder will fill your days, growing your delight in Him.

You will be refreshed as you go to refresh others. Longtime burdens will be things of the past, as you pour out love forward, bringing new life to the downtrodden: Those who have been bound in consequences from living in lies and limitations. You’ll begin to see them physically healed as their soul rises in His truth and light.

Surprises are ahead that will make you leap for joy. You will experience a youthful exuberance and know that your Creator has answered your Psalm 103:5 prayer, which is that He will satisfy “your years with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle.”

Because of God’s grace to agree with and walked out His way, you will have a testimony of Isaiah 40:31 TPT, which says that “those who wait for Yahweh’s grace will experience divine strength. They will rise up on soaring wings and fly like eagles, run their race without growing weary, and walk through life without giving up.”

And for this, you are being rewarded.

So, pray with me if you will…

Dear Lord,

Thank You for blessing me to be a blessing. Please help me to continue to fearlessly walk with You in Your grace, love and wisdom to fulfill my calling and assignments Your way. I choose to trust You.

In Jesus’ Mighty Name,

Dominion Rising

As our Lord releases us more into our new dominion, He highlighted a key scripture to me about receiving His fullness of promise. It illustrates our unwavering walk with Him and reminds us that His Promised Land requires a promised lane. 

The key verse is Isaiah 26:2 TPT, which says, “Open the gates and let a righteous, faith-filled people enter in. Perfect, absolute peace surrounds those whose imaginations are consumed with you; they confidently trust in you.” Similarly, verse 3 in the Amplified Version says, “You will keep in perfect and constant peace the one whose mind is steadfast [that is, committed and focused on You—in both inclination and character], Because he trusts and takes refuge in You [with hope and confident expectation].”

Shortly after writing down the key verse, I took a break and felt led to look out the window. What I saw was an undeniable confirmation: A state constable had pulled up and parked in a public space, just outside my front door. This was most unusual, and I knew in my spirit that our Lord was giving me a visual for this message. 

So, I returned to my desk and looked up the word constable in Webster’s

Webster’s says that constable literally means an “officer of the stable. A high officer of royal court or noble household…The warden or governor of a royal castle or a fortified town…responsible for keeping the peace and for minor judicial duties.”

I was taken by this symbolism. So, in digging a little further I looked up the word con in “con-stable.”

I found that con can be an abbreviation for the words continue and confidence (Webster’s).

Then, I considered the numbers on the constable’s vehicle tag. They were 2199.

Two can be a Biblical number for change, or agreement like a covenant. One can be a Biblical number for unity and the priority of God. Nine can be a Biblical number for fruitfulness. In this case, double fruitfulness, because there were two nines. 

So, considering all of this, I believe our Lord is revealing that He is calling us to rest in His peace as we walk with Him into a new order of great blessing by His arrangement. We are to continue along this path with the eyes of our hearts fixed on Him, as our priority, believing Him at His Word and confident in His authority and grace. As we do this, we will realize, even more, that no challenge we face is too difficult for our God of the impossible, our God of Angel Armies. To our Prince of Peace, anything that comes against His plan is substandard and, therefore, minor in power and position. 

I believe God is reminding us to determine to walk on the high road of peace in any battle, trusting Him to reveal His wisdom and victory-strategies to us as we remain submitted to Him by faith, like Joshua, who was known for his careful obedience. 

If, at any point, we feel inclined toward uncertainty, we can remember God’s strategic Word in James 1:5-8 ESV, which says, “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.”

Therefore, we must we trust God more than ourselves. We must remain steadfast in our faith, not leaning on our own understanding as we continue to enter into more new territory. We must keep moving forward, trusting that God knows what He’s doing and has our best interests at heart. This kind of stability requires intimacy with Him to see as He sees, which means our hearts must be wholly submitted to Him, like Caleb did as he entered into his Promised Land. 

As we proceed God’s way, He will deal with injustices and establish a new manifest order of stability and fruitfulness. Right now, remaining in His peace is the key to advancement. It won’t be as hard as the enemy would have us think. 

So, pray with me, if you will…

Dear Lord,

Thank You for Your gift of peace and for discipling us to walk closely with You. Thank You for Your peace-strategy that stabilizes us to advance in Your promises. Help us to continue to “walk in integrity and trust You without wavering” (Ps 26:1 TPT). Thank You for already having made the way for us to receive Your greater dominion by providing all we need, including Your wisdom. We choose life by Your Spirit, above our flesh; and we choose to submit to You fully by faith, believing You have our very best interests at heart. Thank You for loving us and helping us. We love You, Lord.

In Jesus’ Mighty Name,
