Wake Up Word 04:52
Isaiah 45:2 - The Passion Translation (TPT)
I will march out in front of you and level every obstacle. I will shatter to pieces bronze doors and slice through iron bars.
This is a promise from Living God who is committed to the prosperity and future of those He loves. He is willingly to destroy everything that prevents us from what He has for us. This is not some grandfatherly figure floating on a fluffy cloud. Our God is a Warrior (Exodus 15:3) who knows that spiritual battles are as violent as earthly ones. In His commitment to fight for us, He promises to level obstacles, obtain access and gain our freedom when we partner with Him.
Moses had to stretch out the rod, and God divided the Red Sea (Exodus 14:16). David declared the name of the Lord against Goliath, and God directed a stone to penetrate the giant’s forehead (1 Samuel 17:45-49). Obstacles were removed.
When Joshua and the Israelites followed God’s strategy to take Jericho, the walls came down and the city was plundered (Joshua 6:1-5). Access was obtained.
Around midnight the apostle Paul and Silas were praying and worshipping God when a violent earthquake shook the prison. Chains were loosed and doors flung open (Acts 16:25-26). Freedom was gained.
The timely manifestations of God’s promises are fueled by our faith in Him. Has God given you a strategy to help Him go before you so you can move forward or break in to get what you need or come out of a binding situation? Diligently seek Him in prayer, fasting and studying the Word. This is a paramount first step in putting your faith and His promise into action (Hebrews 11:6).
God wants you to move forward in His plans for you—PROGRESS.
God wants you to break into what He has for you—ACCESS.
God wants you to come out of anything that hinders you--EGRESS.
GOD IS FOR YOU!
Let me be clear, the Anointed One has set us free—not partially, but completely and wonderfully free! We must always cherish this truth and stubbornly refuse to go back into the bondage of our past.
Galatians 5:1 (TPT)
