TODAY’S PROPHETIC WORD
God is declaring His goodness in the midst of your chaos. Stand in the gateway of hell knowing that the enemy will not prevail, and that light will always overcome darkness!
GOD’S DECLARATION OF WAR
The first time we see goodness in the Bible is in the creation account. At the end of each day, in the midst of darkness and chaos, God said, “It is good!”
While everything was messy, unfinished and in a state of deformed transition – while nothing was as it should be and everything was half-formed, God declared His goodness right there on the spot!
…and God saw that it was good.
– Genesis 1:25
The Lord waged war on disorder, darkness and chaos by proclaiming and demonstrating His goodness. This is how He changes the atmosphere. He introduces goodness. We should do the same.
And we know that for those who love God, all things work together for good, for those who are called according to His purpose.
Since we love God, we are not afraid of the mess. The mess actually becomes employed by the goodness of God. In this verse, the Bible says that our love for God qualifies us to see all things work together for good! It is His ongoing work in and for us to experience goodness.
Know this – there is a lot of warfare involved in confronting darkness and you will not be in clean, pristine, safe environments. You will be in prisons sharing the Gospel, brothels freeing little girls from slavery, ghettos feeding the poor and trash dumps bringing clothing, water and hope to the hopeless.
That sounds pretty good to me! What about you?
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO TAKE A STAND IN YOUR HEART. PREPARE TO FACE EVIL HEAD ON AND BRING THE GOODNESS OF GOD INTO WHATEVER MESS YOU FIND!
