Victory Strategy: Be Ready – Part 2
By Margaret D. Mitchell
Week of November 22, 2020
The Lord’s renewed eagles, His transformed ones are to be ready—which means to arise with a disposition of willingness and eagerness—for long-awaited promises to be fulfilled.
God is opening our eyes to see more life in our commitment of faith as He moves us forward in greater peace.
Luke 7:50 TPT tells us that "…Jesus said to the woman, “Your faith in me has given you life. Now you may leave and walk in the ways of peace."
The Lord has impressed my heart that, because of breakthroughs in our commitment of faith, blessings that were once locked and bound will now be unlocked and loosed.
Those who were once bound in chains can now abound in hope, made stronger in their commitment of faith forward (Ro 15:13).
It’s time to see our holy fire re-ignite from a place of resting in The God of peace during this Isaiah 61 time, which is "The Year of The Lord’s Favor."
Romans 16:24 TPT says, "May the grace and favor of our Lord Jesus, the Anointed One, continually rest upon you all."
Especially for those who have been through character-building, it’s time to yield to "a harvest of righteousness and peace" (He 12:11 TPT).
God’s harvest blessings will come into maturity through us as a result of devoting dedicated time with Him, receiving His revelations, then working from a place of peaceful assurance—with no hindrance of anxiety—because we will know God more as trustworthy (Ga 5:22, 1 Jn 4:18).
In this place of resting in God, He reveals more of Himself, releasing divine purpose and deeply moving us with His wisdom, understanding, strategy, knowledge and reverence (Is 11:2 ESV).
Revelation and peace work together for us to also know His ways more, to establish confidence in our walk and to bring heaven to earth. They offer us understanding of Him as what was, what is and what is to come.
Have you experienced the sweet Presence of God like this lately?
Like Ruth laying at the feet of Boaz, after laboring, before her divine purpose was fulfilled?
Resting with God is where we see His perspective clearly. It's where our lives make sense in regards to how He has brought and is bringing all the pieces of our journey together for His glory. It’s where we find significance. God will enable us to experience this deeper turning point, where His revelatory truths alleviate our fears and bring new life of peace and passion. A place of sweet restoration, where we feel more secure at home and “well provided for” (Ru 3:1; De 33:12).
It’s where God breaks through for us, for Kingdom’s sake (Ro 14:17).
For destiny (fulfilled promises).
Keeping our minds stayed upon The Lord, by His grace, is how we find peace.
Romans 8:6 TPT tells us, "For the mind-set of the flesh is death, but the mind-set controlled by the Spirit finds life and peace."
While resting at the feet of Jesus, our minds sync with His, so our feet can put changes in motion alongside Him. When we know Him at His feet, we experience Him fitting our feet with His peace as He reveals His plan to prosper us to bless others.
Resting in peace at Love’s (God’s) feet makes us ready.
Ephesians 6:15 ESV says, "and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace."
Being established in His peace is how we get to courageous.
In John 14:27 TPT, Jesus says, "I leave the gift of peace with you—my peace. Not the kind of fragile peace given by the world, but my perfect peace. Don’t yield to fear or be troubled in your hearts—instead, be courageous!"
Constantly using our faith is how we live, rest and remain rooted in our faith (of His love).
Ephesians 3:17 TPT tells us that "…by constantly using your faith, the life of Christ will be released deep inside you, and the resting place of his love will become the very source and root of your life."
It’s time to be ready to go the distance and influence the earth anew, by His Spirit.
So, friends, pray with me if you will…
Lord, “illuminate the path that leads to the way of peace" (Lk 1:79). "…I’ll listen carefully for your voice and wait to hear whatever you say. Let me hear your promise of peace—the message every one of your godly lovers longs to hear. Don’t let us in our ignorance turn back from following you" (Ps 85:8 TPT).
In Jesus’ Mighty Name.
"Now may God, the inspiration and fountain of hope, fill you to overflowing with uncontainable joy and perfect peace as you trust in him…" (Ro 15:13 TPT)! "Let your heart be always guided by the peace of the Anointed One, who called you to peace as part of his one body. And always be thankful" (Co 3:15 TPT).
"Finally, beloved friends…Live continually in peace, and God, the source of love and peace, will mingle with you" (2 Co 13:11 TPT).
Even in your long-awaited opportunities.
To God be the glory.
