God is calling you to be a mighty warrior. The world we live in is not for the faint of heart. We must stand in our position as sons/daughters of Christ, finding our strength in Him, to have an impact. It can seem easier to sit back and say, "I am trusting God" from our armchair than to take up our weapons and fight for the Kingdom of Heaven. As I was sitting with the Lord, He began to speak about this issue.
The Lord says, "You do not have to stand like a child, covering your ears as the enemy hurls insults at you. Uncover your ears and listen, listen for Abba's voice.
Am I not the commander of Heaven's armies? Lock arms my sons and daughters, lock arms and listen to me.
It is time to cast off that which has held you in captivity. It is time to lose the bonds, break the chains, and walk as the man/woman that I have created you to be.
When you experience My healing, there is absolutely nothing that can stop you.
When you embrace My healing, you walk in your rightful identity as my child.
When you walk in My healing, you bear excellent fruit.
When you receive My healing, you carry and release the roar of the Lion of Judah.
Do not allow the pain to steal your dreams, beliefs, visions, and destinies. You are here for such a time as this."
As I sat with the Lord, I was reminded of the power and promises of His Word. Jesus is faithful and true (Revelation19:11), and He has defeated the forces of darkness. The demonic voice is never to be louder in our lives than the voice of our Savior. God is calling us to listen for Abba's voice intentionally.
Isaiah 30:21 reminds us, "When you turn to the right or turn to the left, you will hear his voice behind you to guide you, saying, “This is the right path; follow it." (TPT). When we uncover our ears and intentionally listen for His voice, we can cast off everything that holds us back.
Isaiah 61:1 reminds us that Jesus was sent to "proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound (NKJV).” As a child of God, you are called to live an abundant, fruit-bearing life. Our lives are not necessarily quiet, but a life that allows the roar of the Lion of Judah to send the enemy fleeing.
Go back and re-read the prophetic word. How does that apply to your life? Do you need to uncover your ears and listen intently for Abba's voice? If so, there is no time like the present. You are created to walk in your identity; you are designed to roar.
