As I was meditating on what to give for the Word of the Lord, it's very interesting what the Lord spoke to me, and he said, "Angels." And I have just done a teaching on angels, but this is what the Lord showed me—that there is a lot of angelic activity right now, especially around you, and with, there's so much violence in the heavens. There's so much going on that you need to believe God for Hebrews 1:14, that the angels are ministering spirits sent to the heirs of salvation. And some of you, you're in a season where it just seems like there's that chaos I talked about in an earlier word of encouragement.
And the Lord just says, understand that there is a battle over your destiny. There is a battle over your life. There's a battle over your emotions. There's a battle over all your family. And so just don't lay down and get depressed, or lie down and just say, "Oh God, don't you love me? All this stuff is happening."
You need to rise up. You need to rise up and say, "In the name of Jesus, I bind the powers of darkness and follow God. When you send your warring angels to now fight in the heavens for my family, who now fight for my destiny." And understand that as you pray, we see this thing in Daniel where the angels began to fight.
And I want to say to you, rise up. You are being protected in the unseen realm, and Father God, I pray that you will send angels even now, messenger angels to give direction. Messenger angels to give wisdom. Messenger angels so your people will know what to do, when to do it, what choices to make, when to buy and sell, when to move, what school to send their children to. The many, many decisions that people have to make on a daily basis. So rise up. I'm speaking to you to rise up. I'm saying to you, don't declare detente to the enemy.
Understand, yes there's a battle waging, but there are many more fighting for you than against you and you are loved by the Father God. You are loved, He is with you, He is sending his heavenly hosts to do battle and you're going to win.
