God is not without purpose, not without a plan. But there are times God has been without someone to stand in the gap calling upon Him to move power and authority from heaven into the earth. (Eze.22:30) Calling unto God in alignment with His plan and purpose brings restoration (Jer.33:6-34).
In a voice of command God said, “Call unto me.” God is not without purpose, not without a plan; but there are times when He has been without someone to stand in the gap calling upon Him to move power and authority from heaven into earth. (Eze.22:30) Calling unto God in alignment with His plan and purpose brings restoration (Jer.33:6-14)
You, O Mighty God, are not subject to political schemes, monetary declines or medical limitations. You are above all those limited strictures. Holy Father, by your awesome Spirit, speak into our lives where we have forgotten your desires and purposes and have concluded, like Abraham in Gen.15:3, that we will not have an heir, and certain things will be and other things will not be. Holy Spirit, come and breathe upon the Word of God in our hearts that we may call upon Him so that He may show us great and mighty things. Come and witness to us today what shall be and what you shall grant by your power from your throne. We must know what we do not now know that the glory may be to Your Name. “Call to Me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things, fenced in and hidden, which you do not know (do not distinguish and recognize, have knowledge of and understand).” (Jer.33:3, Amp)
Going into the new year or new season or new opportunities requires adjustments, decisions and determination on our part. When Israel left old Egypt for the new promised land, they increased the difficulty of the transition by taking old issues, and resultant attitudes, with them. It is OK to take a wilderness experience into promise. We all have some kind of wilderness experience at some point in life, if not several of them. Having gone through the not-so-fun wilderness events, we tend to come out on the other end with negative residue on us. Not “washing off” the residue of the past will taint the tomorrow of promise. It is OK to go into promise with a wilderness experience. But is destructive to go into promise with a wilderness heart. What we don’t leave in the wilderness, trips us up in the promised land. Achan’s family, as well as himself, suffered the consequences of a wilderness heart in the promised land (Josh. 7). What we don’t get over today, overcomes us tomorrow.
Even as God promised Jeremiah that He would reverse the disastrous effect upon Jerusalem, He will reverse the disastrous events befalling our nation and our families. “Call upon Me and I will” (Jer.33:3) is proof positive that our prayers can affect and turn around a city, a nation, a church and a family and descendants. We must move away from other influences in order to call upon God in heaven for His Kingdom to come into earth (Matt.6:10).
