These are the days that may leave you feeling defeated. You may be wondering when these present trials will end or how can you strengthen your faith for the battle as you wrestle against powers and principalities that come against you, in addition to the challenges you face while in your “earth suit.” It is true that the stakes have been raised and are high but that only means that you need to “see” the enemy and raise your praise! You must remember that it is you who holds the winning hand and you have the whole army of heaven with you.
These are the last days and it is time to raise your praise, no matter what you are up against, no matter what giants in the natural realm are trying to slay you. If you know who you are in Christ, He has vested you with His authority and power to move out in the power of the Spirit into the realm where He wants you to live and move and have your very being. Purpose to stay in this place and you will continually live in the center of the kingdom of God.
Raise your praise on the mountain and in the valley for by doing this you bring the kingdom into operation in your own life by a constant act and attitude of faith.
God is now gathering people in which His glory can shine through as the end of the age winds down. There are last minute things He is calling us to do that were not possible in His own physical body during His earthly ministry (Col. 1:24). He is uniting individual members of His body together, bringing revival with spiritual gifting and ministry as a “last call” to come and give all.
Whatever you may be facing, let your light shine brightly before all people. Let them ask from whence your glowing countenance comes. It comes from the Spirit of God that lives inside of you and He inhabits your praises. Remember that your present trials and suffering are leading up to all consuming glory so raise your praise on the darkest of days and the brightest.
And in the midnight hour when He comes to take the church out of this world and into eternity, we who are caught up, raising His praises in the company of the saints, the angels, and heavenly hosts, will all hear The King of kings say once again—it is finished! (John 19:30).
