“Yes, the Sovereign Lord is coming in power. He will rule with a powerful arm. See, he brings his reward with him as he comes.”
Personal note: In today’s world climate, those who are mature in the Lord are seeing the signs of the end of the age. While we watch the turmoil on the earth, we also sense the battle in the heavenlies. In the first 9 verses, the Lord is telling Isaiah to hear His words of promise and speak them to His people. It is an urgent call to awaken, to see, to hear, and to shout that this life is temporary, but be comforted with what is to come. Our Lord is sovereign. He is all-powerful. He has a plan. He will win. We know the end of the Book. Help us, Lord, to see Your chapter headings!
- Open our spiritual eyes to understand the signs of our times. Give us wisdom and revelation to know what to do and what to say. Help us to count our days and make each day count.
- You, Who created this earth and every man and woman and child, have established our times and seasons. We call on the Divine timer You’ve placed in each of us. Ring the alarm bell. Awaken Your people and those You have registered in Your Book of Life. Now is the time to join Your army.
- Receive our praise and thanksgiving for Your awesome power and might. When we have no strength, You are our strength. When our hearts are weak, You speak fire into our spirits.
- Impart an urgency into us and those who have the platform to influence many. Increase Your call to intimacy for pastors, ministers, and spiritual leaders of all kinds. Give them Your anointing to lead us and help us adjust our focus from our circumstances to You.
- Establish Your rule in our hearts. Cause us to let go of any ounce of rebellion. Encourage our surrender to Your orders. Help us to hear and obey You.
- Stir our hearts to pray in the Spirit. Activate a militancy in our faith that we might line up behind Your command.
- You have given us all authority. In Your name, Jesus, we say, “Chains of iniquity, be broken. Demonic influence, cease. Sickness, Disease, Cancer, be healed. Virus, be gone. Rebellion, be squashed, all demonic spirits of jealousy, lying, manipulation, control, twisting, and the like, go to the pit of hell. Breakthrough, come!”
- Release Your angel armies under Your command to war in the heavenlies and minister on this earth.
- Holy Spirit, draw all mankind to You and the Good News of Jesus. Now more than every unmask doctrines of demons and deception that has creeped into Your church.
- Give Your servants and handmaidens affirmations, confirmations, encounters, and every kind of encouragement, today while there is time. Give us a peak, an inclination of what awaits us “on that day”. We don’t seek the rewards as much as The Rewarder. Help us to diligently seek You daily.
