Lift Up Your Eyes, Let Hope Rise!
This word was released as part of A Voice for the Voiceless - 50 Days of Prayer for Life. You can follow along here.
"Lift up your eyes, let hope rise!" I heard this proclaimed over and over by the Father.
I sense that many have become battle weary and even in these 50 days, at times, it may have been difficult to stay the course and remain steadfast in prayer. But God is releasing hope to the hearts of His people today.
Don’t let the enemy steal your joy or lie to you regarding the future of the unborn and the pro-life movement. But instead today, choose and declare:
- Hope over disappointment
- Mercy over judgement
- Love over fear
I sensed this was particularly important within the pro-life movement itself. The enemy has tried to bring division but as we release mercy and love to one another, a great unity of Spirit will come as we move ahead in hope and joy.
Gal. 6:9 “And let us not grow weary in doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.” (emphasis mine)
I feel it’s particularly important to recognise that we’re better together, that every joint supplies and that all voices are needed in this victory. One can put a thousand to flight but two, ten thousand (Deut. 32:30).
“Get your hopes up!”
Heb. 11:1 “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” (emphasis mine)
I sense the Father is releasing a great assurance of His promises over the preborn in this season. I sense He is raising us up as a people, who in the face of seemingly insurmountable opposition, continue to advance in hope.
“Only believe. Did I not promise to move mountains on your behalf? I am greater and bigger still.”
I saw a picture of a lion roaring and as I zoomed out saw that it was actually only a cat meowing whose picture was being projected to look bigger than it actually is. I sensed that the spirit behind the pro-death movement would like us to believe it is a great force in reality is only puffing itself up and making a noise. But God is greater still and of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end. Church arise!
“Any area of your life that doesn’t have the joyful anticipation of good is under the influence of a lie.” Bill Johnson
I encourage you today to ask the Holy Spirit if there are any lies you are believing regarding the unborn and the pro-life movement and give your heart permission to believe again with great hope like a little child confident in the goodness of their father.
I heard this song and sensed it will encourage your heart today!"
Get Your Hopes Up
