Beloved, have you gotten fed up with injustices recently? Have you suddenly found yourself standing up and saying “no” to any further injustice?
If so, the Lord wants you to know today that He is picking a fight on your behalf!
This is what I heard the Lord say today:
“I am picking a fight on your behalf!
For too long I have seen the injustice perpetrated against you. For too long I have seen you walking with clean hands and a pure heart, holding on in faith and forgiving every offense–all while the injustice against you never seemed to cease.
But it will cease now,” says the Lord, “for I am rising up to defend you.
You have lived holy before Me. You have forgiven every offense, and now you have come to the place where you refuse to allow yourself to be disrespected any longer. You have come to the knowledge of My goodness enough that you know that these things are NOT My will for you. And now, you have stood up and said, “Enough.”
Beloved, what you allow on earth is allowed in Heaven–but what you forbid on earth is forbidden in Heaven.
I could not move on your behalf before because you were in agreement with your situation. Even though you did not enjoy it, you did not forbid it–and if you're not against it, you're for it. Your silence brought you into agreement with evil.
However, now you have stood up and said, “Enough.”
You said “enough” because you finally admitted to yourself that you are worthy of kindness. You are worthy of love. You deserve to be treated fairly and with honor. You are worthy of dignity and respect, for you are My beloved child.
Now that you have decided to insist upon your worthiness, I am rising up to fight on your behalf.
You have feared the outcome of this fight, but you do not need to fear if you will keep your eyes on Me. You have been overwhelmed by the fear of being shamed, and the fear of failure; but I tell you that you will not fail.
You will not fail because I will not fail! Your eyes are on Me; your heart is pure; I am rewarding you!
My beloved, in this situation, you shall not be put to shame.
As My Word says in Isaiah 54:4:
“Do not fear, for you will not be ashamed; neither be disgraced, for you will not be put to shame; for you will forget the shame of your youth, and will not remember the reproach of your widowhood anymore” (Isaiah 54:4).
And in Isaiah 54:14:
“In righteousness you shall be established; you shall be far from oppression, for you shall not fear; and from terror, for it shall not come near you.”
I know the situation seems overwhelming, but underneath you are My everlasting arms. Do not fear or dread; man can do nothing to you, for I am on your side.
You need to understand that you can pray aggressively on your own behalf, as long as you pray in agreement with My heart.
Up until now, you have been praying weak and cowardly prayers regarding this situation–but I say to you that now you see this situation in a whole new light, since you refuse to accept anything less than My best for you any longer! And since you know this now, you have risen up to pray the mighty prayers of a warrior.
Ask Me to aggressively punish your enemies.
Remember that you do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against your enemy–the devil–and his evil forces. So rise up and ask Me to aggressively punish the devil and his minions.
Remember also that, anytime My children are in sin, I hate the sin but love the child. Sin is not My will for any of My children. Remember also that I discipline and chasten those I love, and even scourge those whom I cherish.
Therefore, ask Me to discipline, chasten, and even scourge My children who are sinning against Me! As long as you pray this out of My own heart of love for them, you are doing My will by praying this way–for it IS My will to discipline My children!
So ask Me now:
- To convict My erring child of sin, righteousness, and judgment;
- To give them no peace until they heed My conviction;
- To discipline, chasten, and scourge them with My lovingkindness, conviction, and kindness;
- To give them an abhorrence of their sin, that they would love righteousness and hate lawlessness.
Pray these things as well as all the usual prayers that agree with My Word. These prayers are more aggressive than you would usually pray, but this kind of aggression is needed in this hour.
Beloved, hear My heart for you:
My heart is for My Kingdom to come in your life, and for My will to be done in your life–for your life to look just like Heaven. My heart is for you to be loved, cherished, and honored by people like I love, cherish, and honor you Myself. And My heart is to make all things new in your life.
Do not think that I have forsaken you. You have come too far to fail now when your trust is in Me. I will not let you down. I will not fail you. I will not leave you comfortless. You are not an orphan!
The people who have been mistreating you have come against My beloved child.
And now that you won't stand for it anymore, I won't either.
I cherish you, My son. I cherish you, My daughter. My cherishing comes with My protection. I am rising up against your enemies to fight on your behalf. I am greater within you than the enemy, that old accuser of the brethren, is in the world. I am strong, and My strong love will carry you through.
Rest in My grace.
I have surrounded you with a cocoon of My presence. I have enveloped you in an envelope of My keeping and of My glory. Do not fear. Rest in Me.
Take time to hear Me, for I am speaking encouragement to your heart. Take time to rest alone with Me, for only rest will calm the turmoil in your heart. Receive My love and let Me comfort you, for you are My beloved and I am with you to keep you.
I will bring you through.
I am with you to deliver you. I am with you to keep you. I am with you to comfort you. Hide in Me; take refuge in My will and My love. I am your Glory and the One who lifts up your head, and I am restoring you to the place of honor and dignity you deserve right now.
Love, your Papa in Heaven and on earth–the only real Papa you have (and I love you).”
