Currently, we are facing a similar situation Moses and the Israelites faced when God called them out of Egypt. They had the enemy on their trail, following them after the Pharoah agreed to their departure out of the yoke of slavery and bondage. So many people face a place called ” No way” in their families, health, personal lives, prayer lives, marriage, finances, and many other areas.
They are brought to a place called: ‘ Seems to be no way“, The Red Sea. Ironic how the Israelites were led from a place called “Bondage” where they had dwelled for 400 years to a place “ No way “.I can only imagine what emotions MOSES and the Israelites must have experienced when they were cornered and tracked down by the Pharoah!
God is calling women to the frontline to:
- Be equipped
- Take on new territories
- Stand firmly
- Show Compassion
- give Direction
- Give Advice
- lead under authority
And in the morning, ‘It will be stormy today, for the sky is red and threatening.’ You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times.Matthew 16:3
It is our responsibility to watch over our seasons and to discern the correct timing to take action in a specific season. Miriam stepped forward in her season in a victory dance, after God conquered their enemies, leading the women in song and dance. In this season she was revealed as a prophet. God has specific plans and timeframes for our lives and it is up to us to discern these times, to keep watch, and pray.
When a victory is announced in the spiritual realm.
When God saved them out of Pharaoh’s hand, and Miriam stepped out in dance to declare victory, they were still in the desert!
Sometimes when we are in spiritual warfare a breakthrough is being announced at a certain level in the spiritual realm.A little piece of the breakthrough puzzle!Its not the end though, but a few more miles still remain on the way to the promised land, our breakthrough.
Sometimes we might not even see immediate change, but it is being established in the spiritual realm. Therefore we should not lose sight and press on, preparing ourselves for the next phase of the battle. Worship, praise, and thanksgiving are the forerunners of this new phase of the battle.
“God alone has the power to change our times and seasons.”
He changes times and seasons; he removes kings and sets up kings; he gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding.
A designated territory
Even victory has to wait for the divine timing of God to make itself known or to step out on its territory. The Victory route is through faith, watchfulness, and patience. Heaven has its schedules and timeframes, therefore we need to come into alignment with God’s plans and purpose for our lives. In my prayer journal, I seek God’s face to reveal to me His appointed times, plans, and schedules for me and my family.
How does prayer journaling assist my breakthrough?
- It became my battleground.
- Through words, doodles, and journal crafts hidden aspects are revealed to me.
- It became a place of revelation.
- It is a special place I meet with God in the mornings.
- I receive my daily portion of motivation and creativity.
- It urges me to press on.
- It keeps me in consistent prayer and discipline.
- It sharpens my discernment
- It became a place where I and the Holy Spirit keep each other company.
- It became my place of refreshment because spiritual battle wears us down.
