Now is not the time to grow weary or be faint of heart.
Your spiritual adversary curses you with words to weaken your faith and strip you of the power of Christ. He blinds you to the truth and fixes your gaze on his works of destruction.
He is trying to wear you out. But he cannot overcome if you just persist.
For you have been commissioned and appointed for this very hour of deliverance. The nations are looking to you. Do not be silent or hold back.
Today is the day to speak, to act, to rise up and display the sovereign power and authority of the Most High God through your witness and testimony.
The Spirit of the Lord God is upon you, America, because the Lord has anointed you to bring good news to the poor. He has sent you to bind up those broken by sin and to proclaim liberty to those held captive by deception and lies.
Remember who you are and the purpose you were founded on. He’s called you to open the prison doors for those who are trapped and to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God.
Though the demonic forces are raging, for every attack that comes against you, speak and act in the opposite spirit to nullify and cancel their spells of witchcraft.
Instead of recalling death and decay, declare healing and joy.
Instead of feeling faint of heart, release a spirit of praise.
Instead of cursing your enemies, heap coals of heaven’s fiery presence on their heads!
You are destined to be oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he may be glorified. You, America, have been called to build up the ancient ruins, raise up the former devastations and repair the ruined cities, the devastations of many generations.
This is your destiny and your mantle of grace.
For the Lord loves justice. He hates robbery, theft and deceitful schemes and will faithfully give His enemies their recompense.
For as the earth brings forth its sprouts, so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to sprout up before all the nations.
This is His promise and guarantee as you stand secure in His truth.
Your words of life will defeat hell’s insolence and deadly decrees, and the armies of heaven will back you up.
Be persistent and hold fast. Just as tendons and ligaments must be stretched when exerting muscles, so must your endurance be stretched as He is strengthening your faith. Yield to this stretching and allow Him to increase your capacity to love. For it is His body and bride across the earth that will be His reward from this hour of tribulation. Do not give in when the finish line is just ahead!
This is the year of the Lord’s favor.
He has called you, America, to proclaim it throughout the earth.
Prophesy to the nations the goodness and greatness of our God, and see how heaven responds!
Your faith will be victorious; your reward will be great; and your descendants will inherit the earth.
(This prophetic word is inspired by Isaiah 61.)
