Day 10 of 10 Days of Prayer
Day 10 of 10 Days of Prayer
By: Pastor D. Karl Thomas
When God wants to change the world he touches someone’s mouth.
David teaches me to never enter a battle without the promise of God on your mouth!!!
He declared his confidence in his identity in God … then told his problem about its future … then he released his faith to manifest God’s promise.
1 Samuel 17:45-48
Then David said to the Philistine, “You come to me with a sword, with a spear, and with a javelin. But I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. 46 This day the Lord will deliver you into my hand, and I will strike you and take your head from you. And this day I will give the carcasses of the camp of the Philistines to the birds of the air and the wild beasts of the earth, that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel. 47 Then all this assembly shall know that the Lord does not save with sword and spear; for the battle is the Lord’s, and He will give you into our hands.” 48 So it was, when the Philistine arose and came and drew near to meet David, that David hurried and ran toward the army to meet the Philistine.
Jeremiah 1:9-10 “Then the Lord put forth His hand and touched my mouth, and the Lord said to me: ‘Behold, I have put My words in your mouth. See, I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms, To root out and to pull down, To destroy and to throw down, To build and to plant.’”
Jeremiah 1:12 (AMP)
“Then said the Lord to me, You have seen well, for I am alert and active, watching over My word to perform it.”
Isaiah 6:6-8 “Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a live coal which he had taken with the tongs from the altar. And he touched my mouth with it, … Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: ‘Whom shall I send, And who will go for Us?’ Then I said, ‘Here am I! Send me.’”
Acts 2:18-19 “I will pour out My Spirit in those days; And they shall prophesy. I will show…”
Isaiah 48:6-7 “I show you specified new things from this time forth, even hidden things [kept in reserve] which you have not known. They are created now [called into being by the prophetic word], and not long ago; and before today you have never heard of them, lest you should say, Behold, I knew them.”
Ezekiel 37 BACKGROUND
597 BC — Judah has been overrun by the Babylonians.
Those not taken into captivity revolted and Babylon returned, razed Jerusalem and the temple.
Ezekiel was in the first group taken into Babylon.
People broken and hopeless.
The hand of the Lord came upon me and brought me out in the Spirit of the Lord, and set me down in the midst of the valley; and it was full of bones. 2 Then He caused me to pass by them all around, and behold, there were very many in the open valley; and indeed they were very dry. THIS DOES NOT LOOK GOOD — HOPELESS DRY!!!
3 And He said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” So I answered, “O Lord God, You know.”
When God asks a question its not because He is not sure what to do … engage you!
4 Again He said to me, “Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! 5 Thus says the Lord God to these bones: “Surely I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live. 6 I will put sinews on you and bring flesh upon you, cover you with skin and put breath in you; and you shall live. Then you shall know that I am the Lord.”’”
Dont pray your problem … Speak the word of God … proclaim the promise!!!
My household is saved … my children are blessed … they are bound to His purpose.
My Body is strong … My body glorifies God … I Go From Strength to strength!!!
My Steps are ordered by the Lord … I have peace … Righteousness …
My Business is blessed … Everything I put my hand to prospers
My City is the city of god … It is blessed because of me … command safety and peace
7 So I prophesied as I was commanded; and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and suddenly a rattling;
It might get messy … loud … might seem like confusion … but God is at work.
and the bones came together, bone to bone. 8 Indeed, as I looked, the sinews and the flesh came upon them, and the skin covered them over; Things start to come into place … God will align things!
but there was no breath in them. Proper structures and programs are not enough … can’t just look right
9 Also He said to me, “Prophesy to the breath, prophesy, son of man, and say to the breath, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they may live.”’” 10 So I prophesied as He commanded me, and breath came into them, and they lived, and stood upon their feet, an exceedingly great army. WE MUST HAVE THE MOVE OF THE SPIRIT!!!!!
11 Then He said to me, “Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel. They indeed say, ‘Our bones are dry, our hope is lost, and we ourselves are cut off!’ 12 Therefore prophesy and say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “Behold, O My people, I will open your graves and cause you to come up from your graves, and bring you into the land GOD WILL GIVE US LANDS of Israel. 13 Then you shall know that I am the Lord, when I have opened your graves, O My people, and brought you up from your graves. 14 I will put My Spirit in you, and you shall live, and I will place you in your own land. Then you shall know that I, the Lord, have spoken it and performed it,” says the Lord.’”
What is the biggest responsibility given to a generation?
What is the biggest responsibility given to a generation? The Next Generation!
Judges 2:10 “When all that generation had been gathered to their fathers, another generation arose after them who did not know the Lord nor the work which He had done for Israel.”
Psalm 78:4 “We will not hide them from their children, Telling to the generation to come the praises of the Lord, And His strength and His wonderful works that He has done.”
Go Ahead … Prophecy Over Your World. Command The Order Of God!!!
David spent a lot of time alone in the fields with the sheep singing to the Lord and meditating on the word of God. That deep contemplation positions you to clearly align your world with the purpose of God.
Then you have to prophecy your future. Don’t pray the problem speak a preferred future over yourself.
Go ahead. Speak to the dead areas in that are before you. Declare something right now over your life and your world. Call it into manifestation. His word is on your mouth!!!
