Rise up, rise up! Leave behind the past and press forward in My high calling. Learn of Me and let Me show you the way in which you should go. For too long, you have camped in a place of defeat, wallowing in the mire of a wrong mindset. You were not meant to live as a prisoner to worldly thought processes. Rise up! You are a mighty person of valor, strong in Me, able to pull down strongholds! Resist the temptation to hide behind perceived faults and failures, and move forward, knowing you are beloved and live worthy of My call. Rise up! This is the day to advance My Kingdom – the day you choose to walk in victory!
Eph. 4:1-3, “I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called, with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love, endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.” NKJV
2 Cor. 10:3-6, “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.” NKJV
I Cor. 15:57-58, “But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.” NKJV
Rom. 8:37-39, “Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which in Christ Jesus our Lord.” NKJV
