Pause Everything and Pray – A Word of Encouragement and Wisdom from the Lord

PAUSE EVERYTHING AND PRAY

This is for some of you and you will know by the Spirit what “everything” refers to (as in not literally everything to the point that family/needs are neglected). 

It’s a set apart time of prayer and seeking Him in the Word to hear clearly from God on the things you are currently working on, so you know what to prioritize right now as well as each day.

This time of prayer, maybe one day, a few days, a week, etc. is to:

  • Bring clarity, wisdom, and discernment.
  • To give you eyes to see where the distractions are, things that you are working on that are not of God or not for now but later.
  • Recalibrate with God on matters in your life.
  • To show you where you might be wasting your time (e.g. It’s time to shake the dust off your feet for some people you’ve tried to help because they won’t submit to God, obey Him, seek Him themselves or take any responsibility on their part; does not include special needs people of course. The Holy Spirit will show you).
  • To prepare the way for your God assignments.
  • Bring His will for the situation into the earth as it is in heaven but won’t happen according to His best for you without this prayer time
  • Bring favor, break strongholds, move obstacles, bring divine connections, bring needed provision, etc.
  • Possibly reveal a “new thing” to you or new assignment.

In your personal, set apart prayer time, God may show show you more and open up specifically to you, by His Holy Spirit, additional reasons why this time is needed. 

Thank You, Lord, for Your faithfulness and kindness towards us to lead us in all seasons what we are to do in order to fulfill our purposes and plans for our lives and for Your glory. We bless Your Holy name. All glory and honor and praise to You, O God!

Intercessors – Praying GOD’S Will Into the Earth

Cover th earth in prayer

Intercessors

Every move of God, big or small, was prayed into the earth by intercessors at the obedience of the Holy Spirit. Sometimes through one on fire saint or the prayers of many and all in tune with the heart and voice of God.

Answer His call to pray:

  • HIS Will into the earth as it is in heaven [Matthew 6:10] in every area of your life, your sphere of influence, and the secret things He reveals to You.
  • into existence to thwart, cancel, and destroy the plans, assignments and works of the devil upon the face of the earth.

Then, each move, plan, and purpose for the church and every son and daughter should be backed up continually by the fervent, effective prayers of His people.

If you don’t have a vital and trusted prayer partner, ask the Lord to send you one.

Don’t let the enemy or anyone convince you to underestimate the power of prayer.

The Desires of Your Heart

Psalm 37 4

Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart.

PSALM 37:4

The Heart Door

Before you answered the door of your heart and let Him in [Revelations 3:20], you were separated from the Father – for ALL have sinned and fall short of the glory of God [Romans 3:23].

When Holiness Came Near

When His holiness came near, His Holy Spirit wooing and drawing you, and you finally had eyes to see yourself, a sinner in need of a Savior, a lawbreaker in need of an Advocate, one dirty in need of washing in His blood, you were broken by your sinful nature, and said YES to Jesus! “Yes, this is what’s been missing. Jesus is who I need.”

Delight Yourself in God

Once we are born again, new creatures in Christ, we enter the narrow path, hand in hand with Jesus. We get to know Him and fall more in love with Him with each passing day. We delight in Him and His ways, and when we truly delight in Him, our desires will not violate His Holy Word and will line up with Him and His plans and purposes for our lives. Those are the desires He says He will give us. Notice Psalm 37:4 does not say needs – no, DESIRES.

The enemy wants you to AGREE to condemn yourself for wanting the VERY desires God wants you to bless you with as you’ve delighted in Him. If the thief can steal our dreams and desires from us and get us to settle, then he also keeps us from fulfilling God’s Psalm 139:16 plans and purposes for our lives.

When His children don’t fulfill what He intended, the kingdom suffers – others aren’t healed, set free, and blessed because of what the enemy stole from YOU! Yes, YOU!

God wants us to dream big for He is the giver of dreams. God wants us to know who we are in Him as His sons and daughters, so we can receive ALL He has for us – needs, desires, gifts, talents, provision, finances, godly marriages (for a power packed, on fire for Him ministry team), and so much more.

Delight in Him and dream BIG!

Lord, I pray I delight in You continually, so I can be blessed in every kingdom manner, having even my desires fulfilled by You. Give me eyes to see every way the enemy seeks to destroy me and steal from me – including my identity in You, my dreams and desires. It’s in Jesus’ name I pray, amen.

Purpose and Plans of God

The Plot to Destroy Your Psalm 139:16 Story

Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.
And in Your book they all were written,
The days fashioned for me,
When as yet there were none of them.

PSALM 139:16

In Psalm 139:16, we see God wrote a story about each of us – a story about HIS perfect will and plans for our lives. But we see that, often, we are not living out our Psalm 139:16 story.

Though, HIS intentions for our story are good, we have free will and live in a world at war with the principalities and powers of darkness whose sole intentions for us are bad, and they are working overtime to rob us of our God given destinies.

The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

JOHN 10:10

From the womb (think abortion) and all throughout our lives, the enemy wants to steal, destroy us or get us to forfeit God’s Psalm 139:16 story for our lives, rendering us weakened, sidelined, ineffective, or settling for a powerless, imitation life, far below God’s intentions for us and sometimes, even using us to feed into the enemy’s plans, aiding and abetting the father of lies dark kingdom when he tempts us and we fall into sin. Thus contributing to our own destruction.

In the spiritual war we are in, the enemy uses sickness, disease, people, and sin to destroy our TRUE identities as God’s sons and daughter.

But praise God for being able to repent and turn from our wicked ways and being received with our Heavenly Father’s open arms because of Jesus!

He sent HIS WORD and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions. Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men!

PSALM 107:20-21

His Word is Jesus! (John 1)

God is good with only good intentions for us.

Devil is bad with only bad intentions for us.

Period.

To know Jesus is to know the Father.

Prayer

Father, I cry out to You to bring about Your Psalm 139:16 intended will and plans for my life. Resurrect and redeem YOUR story for my life every place the enemy has destroyed and stolen it, every place I have forfeited it and gotten off its path from past choices. Through abuse, the enemy sought to destroy my identity for years to thwart my God given purposes, to destroy my worth, to get me to settle for an imitation life, but You are good and through You and Your Word, You’ve been awakening me to all I am in Christ. Thank You, Jesus! Help me stay on the narrow path with You, so I can walk out my beautiful story, preserve my life, preserve Your story for me, so I may be a blessing to those around me and co-labor with You for the good on Your kingdom the way You intended. It’s in Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
