How to Change the Atmosphere

Today, I feel compelled to share something with you.

Father knows your thoughts, your inner desires and dreams, your unspoken words of prayer. That personal and intimate conversation that is for His ears alone is precious and powerful. But… the angels and demons do not know the silent whispers of your heart. They are only impacted by what you say with your mouth!

Atmospheres do not change with the meditation of your heart; they change with the confession of your mouth. Your praise does not shift the armies of Heaven unless it is verbalised. Your worship and adoration, which is for HIS ears alone, can be silent. The beauty of a heart overwhelmed in His presence is a beautiful thing and He loves such moments. Indeed, we should have more of them. However, it is in the confession of our lips that our spiritual authority (an internal reality) is expressed and His will is enforced on Earth as it is in Heaven.

There is a world of difference between worship and adoration (which can be verbal or silent) and praise. Praise has a two-fold objective. Firstly, it brings joy and gladness to our Father. Secondly, it silences the Accuser and is a witness to the Heavens. For that to be so, it must be verbalised! As long as it passes your lips in an audible manner, the quietest whisper can thunder across the Cosmos and change the course of that day. It can intimidate the armies of darkness and it can empower the armies of light.

Your every verbal expression of love and gratitude to your Father destroys the lies and intents of your enemy (humiliates him) and causes celebration in the Heavenly hosts! And, most importantly, that whisper (or shout!) is heard by your own ears. From there, it enters your heart, dispelling doubt and creating faith.

Scripture is adamant: for there to be a transaction in the Heavens, the word has to be in your heart (a sincere, authentic conviction) and upon your lips (a faith-filled confession).

Love and God bless,

A way through obstacles

As I was having my prayer walk in the bush, I came across a tree that had fallen in the middle of the track. “Oh no! My way is completely blocked!” But then the Lord said, “Do not break your momentum, I will show you a way around it.” Sure enough as I got closer, I saw the gap that He had provided.

Just a few hundred metres further, there was another obstacle, and this time it was huge! The second tree was massive and appeared to completely block the path. It would have been so easy to turn back. Once again His voice said: “I have allowed this, do not slacken your pace, I have provided a way.” And, once again, as I got up close I saw a small gap that allowed me through to the other side.

Friends, there are times in life when we need to push through our obstacle and times when we need to stop, reconsider and pray about the course that we are on. But there are other times when, knowing the clear voice of God’s commission, we must continue and believe that the Lord has a way around that obstacle if we do not flinch and we continue full steam ahead in faith and confidence.

I believe I am speaking to many of you right now. It is often not the obstacle that stumbles us, but our perception of it as being greater than our commission. Obstacles in our path are our invitation for staying well tuned to the Holy Spirit’s voice, listening to His moment by moment instructions, and then deepening our resolve and strengthening our pace. Retreat is not an option! It is never been simpler: hear clearly and obey boldly.

Love and God bless,

David
