Got a new perspective on "He prepares a table before me in the presence of my enemies." I came to a point in this battle that has been raging where God reminded me of these words, "He prepares a table before me in the presence of my enmies." I was in the middle of decreeing God's word over my situations and commanding my enemies to go in the authority of Jesus. I was "doing battle." My heart suddenly desired for the Lord to make my enemies watch me worship Him. Instead of wanting them to go I now began telling them to stay put and watch me worship my King. Watch me give Him all the glory. I knew that it was "killing" the enemy to have to watch me. I stopped addressing the enemy and began addressing my God in worship. God made him watch me and I was "doing battle" in a whole new way. This way was so much easier and satisfying. I was killng my enemy while I was adoring my King. I didn't even consider my enemy anymore. I only paid attention to my King. Worhipping my God in the presence of my enemies. Yes!
So Noah found favor in God's eyes. He walked with God and was the only one righteousness in his generation. God trusted Noah and sent his children and living creatures to him to be saved. Who is righteous in this generation? Who walks with God? If it's you then expect God to send people to you to be saved. Be a Noah in this generation.
"You must know who you are. To know who I am is to know who you are. Who am I?" "Lord you are I Am." "And you came from Me. Know who you are. You were born of Me. Of My doing. Of My creation. Of My will. You came from Me; the great I Am. You came from My inner most being. From the depths of Me. Remember Me and so remember who you are. Created in Me and through Me and by Me."
Sometimes silence is the best weapon. Other times however to be silent is to be defeated! I was told recently not to allow the prophetic voice in me to be silenced. I understood that today. My weapon is the word of God - SPOKEN! If I allow doubt, fear, weariness and what I see with my natural eyes to push me down and silence me I have been defeated already. I will not see what God has promised me and I will fall further into dispare. Rise up! Do not be silent. When it is so very hard to even lift your voice to a whisper, make yourself SHOUT your declarations according to the word of God given to you. Do not let the enemy win. Do not let the enemy tie you down by putting a gag over your mouth. Don't let him make you watch him take your stuff while you are bound. Break free from his oppression and lies by using your voice to prophecy into your situation. Prophecy over your people. In other words declare the word of the Lord over them and watch the enemy be defeated right before your very eyes! Watch the salvaton of Lord come to your rescue. Watch the impossible turn into reality. Believe for the unexpected. Believe for the completely impossible and uterly ridiculous. Pick up your sword; the word of God and cut the enemy's head off with it. God's word can . . .

My proclamation is not perfection but redemption. Oh how I love Jesus
Lord pull me out of the mire and muck of mediocrity, brush me off and set me ablaze. Put a torch in my hand that I might spread your fire everywhere and run the race that you have put before me. Let me be counted with those who have laid down their lives for you. Let be counted amongst those who are the great cloud of witnesses. I can't settle for less God. My heart aches for you. Let me please you my King with every aspect of my life. My heart is an open book to you God. See if there be any wicked way in me and show me so I can know. Strip me God of all that does not reflect you. For you are my desire. Don't let me fool myself and only worship you with words yet my heart be far from you. I want to see you face to face. I do not want to be like people Jesus. I want to be like you; completley given to your Father. I want to be completely given to you. My desire is for you my Fire. I choose the fire. I choose you oh Lord. You are an all consuming fire. I get to be in the fire. I get to be in the Fire. Fiery love. Consume me with your fire.
Recently the Lord asked me "What do you see when you look into the face of a lion?"
I see power, grace and beauty and I wonder what he's thinking.
God replied: His eyes are steadfast on you. Watching you and watching over you. You are his posession. He defends the weak. He is the glory of the pride. He is immovable; unshakable; umtamable. He is obedient to who he is. He cannot be anything but a lion. A lion is swift."
Jesus is the Lion of the tribe of Judah and I believe He was speaking of Himself in this conversation. His eyes are steadfast on you. Watching you and watching over you with the same passion and fierceness you can see on a lions face. We can learn alot about God through the lion.
What do you do when someone quits? - Don't give up. What do you do when someone falls? - Pick them up.
What do you do when they finally just turn away? -
Lift them up!
When I've done all I know to do I will still lift them up to God. I will intercede for them and soon they will turn back around, get back up and begin again.
God's promises are sure.
I love the God who loves me. Where I refrain, He persues. Where I fall he picks up. He persues me with relentless passion and he will not stop until he gets what he went after. I am so thankful and so secure.
