We Are One Year Closer
Let us reflect on these prophetic revelations and encouraging Scriptures from last year as we celebrate what God has done.
And let us dream of things to come as we patiently await our Lord’s promised return.
We heard our Father say: My Paths Are Rivers
I bring the rain, and the waters from heaven fall to the earth as single drops.
Then, they gather together, and begin to flow through the land as streams to rivers, waterfalls to seas, filling up oceans then ascending into the atmosphere as vapor.
Flow with me, and journey in me. Don’t strive to make me happy and don’t be anxious or afraid. I am with you.
The word we received for my paths are rivers is Isaiah 62:10.
Go through, go through the gates! Prepare the way for the people; build up, build up the highway! Take out the stones, lift up a banner for the peoples! (NKJV)
Thank you for sending the rain from heaven, Father. Thank you for cycles and systems, patterns and seasons in your beautiful world that reflect the majesty of your glory.
Yes, Lord, we gladly journey with you step by step. Thank you for being with us, and we celebrate how your perfect love drives out all our fears.
We heard our Father say: Messiah King Of Glory
Every day dawns with fresh mercies and gifts of grace. As the planet spins along her path around the sun, so I am constant as you move through life.
You will taste and see the truth. And when you clearly hear my voice, humbly surrender to my call.
The word we received for messiah king of glory is Hebrews 1:3.
The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact expression of his nature, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high. (HCSB)
Father, we have such joy and take indescribable delight in your fresh mercies and abundant grace. Thank you for being the reliable, rock solid foundation of our hearts.
Thank you for teaching us the truth. Thank you for speaking clearly, and thank you for sending our Beloved Savior to model for us how to humbly surrender to your will.
We heard our Father say: Battles Belong To Me
I am your Fortified Rampart and Indestructible Fortress. I am the Almighty King of the Galaxies. I rest my feet upon the earth.
I fight your battles. I raise up a pillar of swirling cloud around you by day and a pillar of blazing fire through the night watches.
The word we received for battles belong to me is Isaiah 54:10.
“Though the mountains be shaken and the hills removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace removed,” says the LORD, who has compassion on you. (NIV)
Father, we feel safe, hidden behind the blazing fire of your glory wall. Every night, we lift up our eyes to view the heavens and join in the celebration of your scattered stars singing and shining forth the praises of your holy name.
Thank you for fighting our battles. Thank you for showing us the true enemy, so that we stop arguing with and fighting amongst ourselves. We receive your victory, Almighty Warrior of Zion.
We heard our Father say: Master Of Sorrows
I know pain; rejection and condemnation are my companions.
When you are overwhelmed with despair, and suffering washes over you like a wave of death, remember that I am with you.
I will shelter your anguished soul under my wings of refuge.
The word we received for master of sorrows is Isaiah 53:11.
After a life of suffering, he will again have joy; he will know that he did not suffer in vain. My devoted servant, with whom I am pleased, will bear the punishment of many and for his sake I will forgive them. (GNB)
Father, life is sometimes an ocean of sorrow, a flood of pain, a road of persecution. We confess our sin and weaknesses. We confess our stubbornness and lack of faith.
We confess our pride and self exaltation. We confess our doubt and frustration.
We repent, precious Lord, and we make a fresh covenant with you today to gladly share in the sufferings of Jesus Messiah as a hidden blessing of your heavenly kingdom, so that we will understand and worship our Redeemer all the more.
We heard our Father say: Every Soul Matters
I love every person, and the diversity of this planet’s nations and cultures is a beautiful symphony, singing streams of melodies that reflect my character, plans, and all my promises.
I restore the purpose and beauty of every tribe back to my sovereign plans and destiny designs so they will experience the joy of my heavenly kingdom.
The word we received for every soul matters is Matthew 9:12-13.
But when Jesus heard it, he said, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. Go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, and not sacrifice.’ For I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.” (ESV)
Father, you are Mankind’s Deliverer, for you sent to us Jesus, Heaven’s Missionary. You came to seek the lost and save those locked up in eternal bondage.
We declare light and freedom over the nations, today. We speak life and deliverance over all the peoples.
Let every tribe discover the beauty, diversity, dignity, and destiny of unity among all tribes.
We ask that your kingdom come and your will be done in North, Central, & South America, in Europe & Africa, in Russia & the Middle East.
In Central and South Asia, in Southeast & East Asia, in Oceania and all seafaring peoples, and all astronauts and stargazers and interstellar voyage dreamers in Jesus’ name, amen.
