“Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you…” II Thess 3:1
May the Word of the Lord have free course with you and in you today. That very Word, which in the beginning created everything that was created, is being released in your hearts today. Jesus, the Incarnate Word, sits at the right hand of the Father interceding on your behalf that the promises in God’s Word be fulfilled within you.
It’s time to stand up and declare His Word concerning you, your family, and the Church. God gives us His Word, not to ignore it, but to declare it. If we don’t declare His Word, things will only get worse – for us. It is our life-line. If we declare the Word of God concerning all matters we face, we are going to see and experience some of the greatest victories, healings, miracles, signs and wonders to ever take place. Our God has not run out of power and He’s still able to do the impossible! We have to believe it and proclaim it for full effect! Look at what Heb 1:3 declares, “Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high…”
The Power of God is released in earth when the people of God begin to place a demand for it. We do that through prayers, intercessions, confessions, declarations, and decreeing (commanding) out of a pure heart of faith. We must march forth in strength, confidence, boldness and power of the Holy Ghost in order to work the works of Jesus today. Cowards won’t make the cut. There has to be that visible expression of the Church that truly reflects the life and ministry of Jesus. That means true transformation to the degree that Christ is fully formed within us according to Gal 4:19.
The Word of God compares us to athletes, soldiers/army, children, and babies revealing our state or condition. The purpose is not to condemn, but to correct and edify. As the Lord told Joshua, “Be strong and very courageous,” the Church has to be the same today. After being released from prison, Peter, John and the other disciples prayed for All Boldness to preach the Word and that healings, signs and wonders be done in Jesus name (Acts 4:29-30).
