“That night the Lord said, “Get up! Go down into the Midianite camp, for I have given you victory over them!” (Judges 7:9, NLT)

For the past week, I’ve been hearing the Lord say, “It’s time to kick the door in and take it back.” If you think that the enemy, the greatest thief of all time, satan, is going to hand your stuff back to you, you are greatly mistaken. What the Lord showed me was many of us have experienced closed doors in our lives, some have been God, some have not. This is where your discernment comes in to know what is God and what is not.

The enemy has snuck in and closed some doors in your life that were not meant to close and on the other side of that door is everything that he’s stolen. Again, this requires great discernment on your part but the Lord says it’s time to kick that door in and take it back!

Several years ago, I worked in law enforcement and learned that when you kick a door in you must strike in the right place, and if you do, with one kick you can bust through a locked door. Church, it’s time, the enemy thinks he’s got all your stuff locked up and you’re just sitting there waiting for him to hand deliver it back to you. Well, for those of us who are determined, satan is in for a big surprise.

I don’t know about you, but I’m going to kick the door in and take my stuff back!
