“Move Forward in Full Confidence”
All Power and Authority
Recently, as I was seeking the Lord regarding new
land He was leading my husband and I to take, I was taken into a vision with the Lord and heard Him say these phrases: “I have been given all power and authority, and I am with you always. Go forward!”
“And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto Me in Heaven and in Earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: teaching them to observe
all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” (Matt. 28:18-20 KJV)
This is a familiar Scripture, but the breath of God breathed
new life into it as He spoke it to me. In Strong’s concordance, the word “power” includes authority. The power and authority given to Jesus is over the whole earth and heavenly realm. Every demonic force of darkness cannot touch you as you
remain in the reality of this truth, for Jesus has been given all power and authority, and He is in you! The Spirit of the LIVING God is in you and Jesus is with you always!
Jesus holds all power and authority
over all that is created; He is “far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come” (Eph. 1:21). He has already overcome every situation you will
find yourself in and He is with you! Step into faith in this truth and stay there. Repent from every ungodly mindset that keeps you in bondage, and every foul lie of the enemy that you have allowed to bring distraction, doubt and discouragement, for the Kingdom
of God is at hand; right here, right now.
Take the Land!
We have entered a time of great harvest and we are to take the land that the enemy has held
for too long. You have been delivered from darkness and bought with a price, for a purpose – the same purpose of Jesus – to destroy the works of the devil (1 John 3:8). Begin with every spirit trying to pollute you with the foul stench of Hell’s
lies; then with that same overcoming power, go forward and take the land where the devil has held others captive!
“And He brought us out from thence, that He might bring us in, to give us
the land which He swear unto our fathers.” (Deut. 6:23 KJV)
In Hebrews chapter 3, verses 7-12, the author admonishes us not to harden our hearts as the Israelites did in the wilderness on their journey
to the Promised Land. They tested God by doubting He was with them. In fact, the author goes so far as to say that it is an “evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God” (Heb. 3:12 KJV)! He is alive, He is with you; believe and go
Rest in the Finished Work
The Lord has been emphasizing to me that we are being called to take new land from a place of resting in the finished
work of Christ (John 17:4, 19:30), and from that position, finding what He wants us to do in every moment. The rest comes from being fully surrendered to the Lordship of Jesus Christ, allowing the Holy Spirit of the Living God to be in control.
The works were finished from the foundation of the world! You are an eternal being, chosen in Christ before the world was formed, and God has, before time, ordained works that you are to walk in.
“According as He hath chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love…” (Eph. 1:4 KJV)
“For we are His
workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them…” (Eph. 2:10 KJV)
“Who hath saved us and called us with an holy calling,
not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began…” (2 Tim. 1:9 KJV)
Press in to the One who created you and
receive revelation on the works you are to walk in. “…God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son (1 John 5:11). Jesus is eternal life. Every eternal plan of God for your life is found in Christ, and the only way to move forward
into the fullness of your destiny in Him is through that place of resting in Him, where you hear His voice saying, “This is the way, walk ye in it.”
We are in a time of great trials and tribulation,
but that means we will have great victory! The Overcoming One dwells in us; in Him we live and move and have our being. He cannot fail. Stay in the place of resting in Him and you will prevail!
things I have spoken unto you, that in Me ye might have peace. In the world ye will have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33 KJV)
We are in a clash of
kingdoms and it is time to render violence to every false mindset, every high thing and every lie of the devil that keeps you from faith in the finished work of Christ, so that all that you do is from the place of rest – His finished work. In that place
of rest we realize He is with us and we hear His voice giving us the meat that we need to carry us from assignment to assignment, moving in victory in Him and through Him!
“Labour not for the meat
which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for Him hath God the Father sealed.” (John 6:27 KJV)
“There remaineth therefore
a rest to the people of God. For he that is entered into His rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from His. Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.” (Heb. 4:9-11 KJV)
You Are an Ambassador of Christ
You’re a new creature – an ambassador of Christ for the Kingdom of God. You are chosen in Christ, called out of darkness
and into His marvelous light, to take back what the enemy has stolen from you and from those that you encounter, as the Spirit of the Living God sends you forth! It’s time to take the land. Go forward in full confidence as the Spirit of God leads, for
Christ has been given all power and authority and He is with you…always!
I heard by the Spirit of the Living God, “Move forward from the place of rest; in Me you will be fully blessed and
I will bring you to My best. Stay focused on Me, in My love abide, for I am ever by your side and all you need I will provide. You do not need to understand; stay in faith and take the land. Place your trust fully in Me and My ways, for I am with you all your
