He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress;
My God, in Him I will trust.”
While many still mourn the terrorist attacks upon Paris, which are amongst a number of recent deplorable evil acts that have occurred upon innocent lives in Israel, Russian passenger jets over Eygpt, Lebanon markets, Syria, Iraq and more, by these, sadly, decieved, even possessed, so called Islamic fighters, it is important to remain vigilante. Both against the dogs of war, and the demonic activities of these terror groups.
While security forces continue to find a way to respond to the latest murderous deeds, the most profound is with prayer, in Christ, as led by the Holy Spirit. The call to Intercession, even prophetic intercession, is being issued by the Lord. As we respond, and stand with our Lord Jesus in the gap at the right hand of the Lord, we will see Him do great and mighty things, and extend His house of prayer over our cities and regions….becoming a place of refuge as we abide in Him. Unity in the Spirit of God, as we jointly and independently respond to this call to stand in the gap, and decree His destiny for our homelands, will command a blessing. This is not something orchestrated by man, rather by Christ Himself through His Spirit…calling us to a place of counsel and intimacy with Him.
At this time, there is a sense of urgency to pray for Washington DC, and Canberra. Both cities in their design are patterned on Paris, all of which has aspects of God’s design, but also very much Masonic lines and plans…the latter giving rise to areas of attraction for dark forces. In Christ we are light, and as we walk the street, go to community gatherings, meet in prayer circles, or most powerfully enter in to our prayer closets, interceding and abiding in Christ, we draw a new pattern, one of light, a shield and place of refuge, and we call on the Lord to build.
As Thanksgiving Day and Australia Day approach let us come before the Lord, stand in the gap, and trust in the leading of the Holy Spirit as He intercedes through us. We have confidence in the knowledge that Father God is above all, greater than all, and hears our prayers. We do not respond out of fear, rather from a place of love for Him, our neighbour, and trust in the Lord.
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. (2 Timothy 1:7 NKJV)
