keep-calm-because-god-will-fight-for-youBut Moses told the people, “Don’t be afraid. Just stand still and watch the LORD rescue you today. The Egyptians you see today will never be seen again.14 The LORD himself will fight for you. Just stay calm. (Exodus 14:13-14, NLT)

Throughout this week God has been speaking words like restoration and burden lifter. What I heard last night as I was writing this was “Stay calm, I am fighting for you.” I believe many of you have been trying to fight in your own power. It seems like no matter what you do, you can’t get ahead and, as a result, you’re dealing with mass amounts of discouragement, depression, and frustration. The word of the Lord to you is, Stay Calm, God Is Fighting for You!

You have to let go, you have to give up control, you have to let God do what He wants. He saw you circumstance before you did. He had a solution before it ever started, and He is fighting for you. Don’t be afraid, stand still and watch the Lord rescue you today. The enemy that stands in front of you now, you will never see again! He’s not just removing the struggle in front of you, He’s completely demolishing the enemy at work in your life.
Your season of discouragement is coming to an end, depression has to go, and frustration must give way to joy and peace! You need to stand still and remain calm in the face of your enemy because you have a God fighting for you that’s bigger than satan and any of his demons.

Do you need a job, healing, financial miracle, a miracle in your marriage, what’s your need? This is the season to stand still and watch God work. Reality is, you can work yourself to death trying to make things work out but God has the final say. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride! There is an acceleration in this time, God is accelerating gifting’s and callings and because of this acceleration, He is accelerating the miracles in your life. Be encouraged because today is a new day, this is a new hour, stay calm and let God fight for you.

I’ve included a video this week, you need to listen to this song. If you don’t have time to listen to the song, at least advance to the seven minute mark and listen to the word that is shared. This is a timely now word that I know will encourage you. Be blessed, your best days are ahead of you!

    Thank you so much for your blog and daily emails. I look forward to them everyday…always a prophetic word right on time!
    I’m fighting a battle in court that is so unjust in every way. I some to my lawyer about next week’s trial. She could be the cover girl for the book of lamentations. ..please pray for her. I allowed the words she spoke to get on the inside of me. Thank God I opened my email! I was barely able to go on…for I have been in battle for over three years. On the flip side God has become my Daddy and I’ve learned to lean on Him as Jacob did his staff, learned how to praise like David (while remain clothed, lol) He has healed parts of my heart that I didn’t know needed healed! He recently healed my baby brother from a suicide attempt. I got a call that they found hi unconscious with antifreeze in his stomach, all his vital organs shut down and little brain activity, he was in a coma. I’m a nurse and have never seen anyone make it through this. The first thing I did was get on my face, secondly called the intercessors, theird-got my praise on. That night my next oldest brother and I had the exact same dream of him preaching, mind you he was lukewarm. Our father was a preacher/prophet/superhero. We had seen a lot and we’re all turned off of Christianity. On the 3rd day, my brother got out of bed and started removing the equipment. Hallelujah to the king of kings, JESUS! Please pray for his total deliverance and that God will replace his heart of stone with one of flesh.
    My lawyer and others have spoken prophetic ally without realizing it, telling me that only God you believe in can help you. She said,”Though it isn’t fair, they have all the money in the world and control this….they are giants!” Well, my God, the great I AM has made me a giant slayer!
    Please keep me in your prayers. I will be in court on the 21st of October at 9am. Prayer for His glory to overtake the courtroom! Pray in the spirit as well.
    I had chosen nursing over ministry and allowed the intense study to take my time away from God. Slowly I got prideful and began to compromise…just little ones. Obviously I was fooling myself.
    God is using my foolish mistakes of my past to bring Glory due to His name. No matter what I will praise the Lord! By the way, this post was on my 53rd birthday. 😉
