I believe in self-discipline and diligence. I have never believed in human laziness. Yet I am also aware that there is a limit to human effort; especially in the need of spiritual power that brings about human transformation. There are definite things we must train in our human responsibility before God and our accountability in relation to people around us. These build integrity and character in us. To enjoy realities of the kingdom of heaven on earth, it takes God that works in us from inside out.
The Lord showed me that breaking barriers for release is by our alignment with Him. It is described in four (4) words: Honour, Faith, Prayer, and Blessing.
At the watch-night service 2013, the Lord spoke to me prophetically about the spirit of King David. Acts 15:16 said God would restore David’s fallen tent. This is about honouring God in worship. David’s worship with his harp was the spiritual foundation of his life and kingship. He related with God from a heart of worship, making him “the man after God’s own heart”. From his worship with his harp Saul was delivered of demons. Our honour of God translated in personal worship is the basis for God’s power for barrier-breaking release. Honour aligns our hearts in worship with reverence in God’s royal supreme presence. Love God with honour and worship. God’s presence liberates. Even hills melt like wax in the presence of the Lord.
From a heart of honour with worship of the Lord, our love relationship with God builds a quiet confident trust in our trustworthy heavenly Father. This is faith with love and rest. Such faith from a heart of honour unto God aligns us in His divine flow of God’s life and power from above.
When we are aligned with God from top down, our faith for prayer will take a dimension more than petitioning God for our earthly needs (which God does not overlook). Prayer is in God’s wider perspective of His kingdom and nations. While not focused only on personal needs but seeking first His kingdom and His righteousness, in a mysterious way, our personal needs are met. Prayer starting with faith that honours God, aligned to His kingdom plan to rule earth from heaven, is prayer with great faith as the centurion in Matthew chapter Eight (8).
Under divine alignment with our heavenly Father, in His will and purpose, we will be blessed. In turn we will be a blessing to others in the nations.
May we all prosper in this Year of Barrier-breaking Release!
