How often we speak without considering the outcome! Our conversations are rife with curses as we talk about circumstances of others without taking authority over the negative and speaking the positive. How many times do we complain, grumble, mumble and mutter to God?
In 2015, in a time of prayer and communion with God and a dear friend, the Holy Spirit dropped these words into me. I share them with you now, in remembrance of this dear friend who has this week left behind this valley of tears and moved to her eternal home with the Lord. Hear the words of the Lord:
“I do not want you to be clamorous. Be assured in your approach to me, confident in our relationship and what you expect of me. I will answer every prayer but if you are not certain of what you expect or desire as an end result then I will respond according to my righteousness. You have the power to move mountains and part seas, but if you hesitate, your mountain may shudder, creating an earthquake in your life) rather than move, and your sea may become a tidal wave (creating a flood in your life) and refuse to part. Be confident in our relationship and my responses. You have power – I have placed it in your hands. Pray the end that you desire. Command the mountains and the seas. Watch, my beloved child, as the universe responds.
As you decree and declare a thing, the firmament moves in the direction of your declaration. Just as water ripples in response to a swimmer, so the firmament responds to your words. Speak words of life – speak words of abundance – speak words of health – and watch the heavens respond and line up with your words. Your words have great power: use them for good. Bless and curse not. The louder, the better. Like a trumpet gets the attention of the entire band, so as you trumpet the entire firmament responds. Watch, child. As a son commands his father’s servants, so you have authority to command my servants. Proclaim it. Declare it. Decree it.
