 Awaken to who we are in Jesus - 7/23/11

The word of the LORD says “Understand who you are today in the Lord Jesus Christ and walk in the authority that He has given you.” Recognize the spiritual realm and call those things that be not as though they were just as He does.

This morning during our pre-dawn prayer call, my Pastor from Red Oak, TX, Billy Grate began the call with a word from the LORD about how He is preparing and raising up a generation today of saints who will be able to rest in their confidence and hope in Him. They will take authority and operate in the supernatural realm. Later during the call when I was praying in the Spirit, He gave me prophetic utterance to release this word to many who were on that call saying that from the day that we were saved and endued with the power (dunamis) of the Holy Spirit, we have had dwelling right within of us more power than we could possibly imagine. He said that He wanted us, being led by the Holy Spirit, to be courageous, to take authority in spiritual attacks and to call those things that be not as though they were. Essentially operating in the fullness of His power and will to take back those things which the enemy is trying to take from us today.

Later during the prayer session, He once again gave me utterance to speak to those people who were hearing those words and thinking “surely he doesn’t mean me because I am weak and not able to do such things.” He pointed me to an example to reference from Judges 6:12-16 where the Spirit of the LORD appeared to Gideon and called him a mighty man of valor and told him that he was going to save Israel. Much like many of us do today, Gideon said “who me? I am from a poor family and I am the least in my father’s house.” He said that just as He told Gideon that day that He was going to do great things through him, He is calling His children today to arise and awaken because He wants to do great things through you too. Yes you.

Later, about an hour after our prayer call ended, I noted on Facebook that my Pastor from HCBC Leander, Peter Horn had posted a comment about a bible verse (1 Chronicles 16:9) on his wall. This verse, one of my favorites, essentially says that the eyes of the LORD are searching to and fro throughout the whole world looking for people through whom He can demonstrate His power. But not just any people, people whose hearts are perfect (completely sold out) for Him.

Later in the day as I reflected back on the morning, I realized that there was a pattern there where I had heard God speaking clearly about this. He is raising an army today just like He did with Gideon in Judges 6 and He wants to operate through us in the supernatural. Word of God speak. This is not limited to just the people who were on our prayer call.

Faith is the key!
