A Gentle Reminder

The harvest is plentiful and the laborers are under attack. But do not shrink back in fear, for the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, they are Mighty In God. 2 Corinthians 10:4.

This sounds like 10-4, over and out. meaning the message has been received and understood.

 

Have you ever desired His Touch?

Gentle reminder that He is near

Not that you have forgotten

Yet longing for His soft touch to calm the fear

Have you ever cried aloud

Oh God the fear has crept back

Only to be reminded

Persecution comes by attack

 

The words of James to count it all joy

With these diverse fiery trials

Yes breakthrough is very near

Ready our feet to dance for miles

 

For when we have harvested

Like a woman travailing in labor

Oh what joy and celebration

As we gather at The Master’s table

So as the fiery trials rage

Seven times hotter are the afflictions

Keep our eyes focused on Jesus

Hold fast our godly convictions

 

For the promise is sure and true

We shall reap if we do not faint

Satan desires to wear out

The people of God His precious saints

 

We shall rest when we must

Not forget to drink in plenty of liquid

Living water from the wells of salvation

Certain to extinguish the lies and contradiction

 

I hear the sound of abundance

It is coming over the mountain

For our God is sending revival

Salvations well the flowing fountain

Recently I have gone through some difficult times and I’ve had to remind myself how to fight. Not to prepare physically to fight, but fight spiritually. You know the fight we fight as Christians? We fight fiery darts by soaking our shields of faith in water. Today I find myself wondering,  is this why we need the opposition. Is it to remind us to sharpen or swords, load our cannons, sharpen our axes, (not grind them), and make ready our weapons?

 

Last night out of my mouth came the words, “The weapons of our warfare are not carnal, they are mighty in God, to the pulling down of strongholds. Then I knew I had unleashed and unlocked my arsenal.

 

The old fear left when I opened the door of my arsenal. I saw and immediately grabbed every weapon I needed. This arsenal is full of swords. Which believers know is the the word of God.  My soul quieted and I had His peace.

 

So as I submitted to God, the enemy surely did flee. When he saw the arsenal and he knew it was over for him.

 

Stand still and see the salvation of God. Exodus 14:13

 

Drink plenty of liquids this heat is fierce.

 

1      “And in that day you will say:

Oh LORD, I will praise You;

Though You were angry with me,

Your anger is turned away and You comfort me,

  1. Behold, God, my salvation! I will trust and not be afraid, For the LORD GOD is my strength and song; Yes, He has become my salvation.”
  2. Therefore with joy you will draw water From the springs of salvation.
  3. And in that day you will say, “Give thanks to the LORD, call on His name [in prayer]. Make His deeds known among the peoples [of the earth]; Proclaim [to them] that His name is exalted!”
  4. Sing praises to the LORD, for He has done excellent and glorious things;
  5. Let this be known throughout the earth. Rejoice and shout for joy, O inhabitant of Zion, For great in your midst is the Holy One of Israel.”

 

ISAIAH 12:2-6 AMP

Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation. (KJV)

You will joyfully draw water from the springs of salvation, (CSB

With great joy, you people will get water from the well of victory. (CEV)

God bless you and keep you and make His face shine upon and be gracious to you. The Lord cause His countenance to rise upon and give you Shalom.

Until next time, thank you for listening with me. Laurette

  1. Amen! The same scripture of warfare came to me a few days ago also! Also decreeing “that You Lord will give Godly sorrow that works repentance that leads to salvation”. They shall return to their own (Godly) territory in Jesus Name!
