Stand Your Ground

Moose Jaw - - Front Page -

Trau­matic divorce, re­sent­ment, ver­bal and psy­cho­log­i­cal abuse. A con­stant state of tur­moil. Ever feel as though your life is in a state of chaos? Chaos is: a state of com­plete con­fu­sion and dis­or­der. Syn­onyms are dis­or­derly, dis­ar­ray, dis­or­ga­nized, topsy-turvy, hay­wire, con­fused, in tur­moil, tu­mul­tuous, dis­rupted. I re­mem­ber days like that. I re­mem­ber days when my mind was in such con­fu­sion, I didn’t know where to turn or what to think. I re­mem­ber feel­ing as though my life was in a tu­mul­tuous dis­rupted state of mind. Lana Vawser, a mod­ern-day prophet­ess, has re­cently re­leased a word to be­liev­ers for this sea­son we are in. “I felt the Lord say that there is a chaotic spirit that is com­ing against many of God’s peo­ple. I felt the Lord say­ing ‘STAND YOUR GROUND!!!!’ The sense sur­rounded me, don’t look to the left or to the right, don’t give into the chaos that sur­rounds, stand your ground in Him! The winds of CLAR­ITY are blow­ing and about to blow upon you! I then felt Him say “THERE IS A NEW WAY BE­ING MADE”. Many have come up against this chaotic spirit be­cause a door is about to open to you to lead you in a NEW DI­REC­TION that will give you great clar­ity for the fu­ture. I also felt the Lord want­ing His peo­ple to have peace in Him. Where this chaotic spirit is rais­ing its ugly head, throw­ing fiery darts of lies, caus­ing noise and tor­ment of mind upon many, the Lord is breath­ing upon you to bring you peace as you keep your eyes on Him. As you take shel­ter in Him the most high, there is divine peace and pro­tec­tion around you. (Psalm 91)” In the early days of our mar­riage, we lived in days of con­stant tur­moil. Con­fu­sion. Strife. Dis­sen­sion. I can re­call the times when I was heart-bro­ken and hurt­ing. The good news is that we don’t live in that state any more. I can’t re­ally put a fin­ger on what ex­actly started to change our sit­u­a­tion but I know I never gave up be­ing hun­gry for God and hun­gry for peace. No mat­ter what state you are in your present sit­u­a­tion, there is hope. Your chaos can turn to calm. Your para­noia to peace. Your con­fu­sion to clar­ity. Stand your ground! “I have given you au­thor­ity to tram­ple on snakes and scorpions and to over­come all the power of the en­emy; noth­ing will harm you.” “Fa­ther God, I de­clare that this chaotic spirit that has come against my broth­ers and sis­ters will be bro­ken off of them, their homes and their fam­i­lies. I de­clare that You, Holy Spirit, will have full reign and bring hope, calm, clar­ity and peace. In Je­sus’ name, Amen.” “That’s right. If you dili­gently keep all this com­mand­ment that I com­mand you to obey—love God, your God, do what he tells you, stick close to him—God on his part will drive out all these na­tions that stand in your way. Yes, he’ll drive out na­tions much big­ger and stronger than you. Every square inch on which you place your foot will be yours. Your borders will stretch from the wilder­ness to the moun­tains of Le­banon, from the Euphrates River to the Mediter­ranean Sea. No one will be able to stand in your way. Ev­ery­where you go, God­sent fear and trem­bling will pre­cede you, just as he promised.” - Deuteron­omy 11:24-25 (MSG Trans­la­tion)
