Strategies for a Season of Crisis

by | May 11, 2010 | Blogs, Prophetic Insight

Chuck D. PierceWe are approaching a season of crisis, and in a season of crisis, the strategies of heaven must invade your sphere of authority. What does this mean?

You have been positioned by God in a particular sphere of authority. You must understand your sphere and know how to operate in it with others. This sphere is where you are watching the formation of your “new.”

A sphere is a circuit of motion, revolution or orbit. A sphere is also defined as a vast expanse where your heavenly realm appears. My favorite definition of a sphere is “a circuit of action, knowledge or influence that is linked both to the functional area of your involvement and to every territory that is affected by you exercising authority.” Within this expanse is an order of society that you can influence.

In 2 Corinthians 10, Paul talks about what his sphere of influence includes and where he does not have authority to rule. Your sphere of authority is where you enter the new!

For you to see the new that is happening around you, you must shake off all discouragement, disillusionment and disinterest. You must tell your emotions not to resist the new. You must believe that God has more for you.

In other words, your latter can be greater than your former. You must go up into a new spiritual realm. Actually, you must go beyond where you have been in the past!

There is much about war that we do not understand. War always involves casualties, and, at the same time, divine interventions of which we’re unaware. Sometimes war makes no sense to us. Yet, war is a part of life. And as we face the unfolding war that lies ahead in both the natural and the spiritual realms, it is crucial that we adhere to Paul’s words to the people of Ephesus:

“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

“Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace” (Eph. 6:10-15, NKJV).

In the midst of conflict, we must learn to stand until we see peace, until the perfect plan of God is manifest. We must stand until evil forces that oppose God’s will are pushed back. As long as the Spirit of God is still in the earth realm, He will use His people to stand against the evil that attempts to rule our world.

I hear the Spirit of God say to me, “There will always be wars and rumors of war. There will be many battlefields that unfold in the days ahead. Your future will be determined by how you trust Me on the battlefield.

“Lean not on your own understanding. In the midst of your conflict, I have a plan! There are some things that are still hidden from you. Trust Me so that in My perfect timing I can manifest the reason I called you to stand.”

Warfare seems to be increasing in the earth. This indicates that the enemy is on the run! One can turn on the news and quickly see that we are in a season of great unrest. Just recently, a bomb attack was averted in Times Square in New York City, the Nashville region experienced unprecedented rainfall and flooding, and a giant oil spill occurred along the Gulf Coast, causing much damage. This will affect the economy greatly.
