TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
My Son won the fight over 2,000 years ago. It is not your purpose to fight the enemy. It’s your duty and responsibility to resist him. Cry a shout of victory, then walk in that victory. We win!
SHOUT AT THE DEVIL
There are many ways to approach God in prayer, but one of the most effective is crying out to the Lord. The Bible shows us two main Kingdom themes of crying out: a shout of victory and a cry of desperation.
A shout is high volume. When it comes to a shout of victory, it might not be in celebration, but in declaring a victory. Shouting is so appropriate for things prophetic.
Then, as He was now drawing near the descent of the Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works they had seen, saying: “Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!” And some of the Pharisees called to Him from the crowd, “Teacher, rebuke Your disciples.” But He answered and said to them, “I tell you that if these should keep silent, the stones would immediately cry out.” – Luke 19:37-40
The people who are in love with Jesus are shouting, then the religious people start shouting because it’s rude that the Jesus-loving people are shouting. It’s interesting that Jesus said that the stones on the real estate of Zion actually have a voice – not only that, but they would “cry” out.
Now, Jesus was saying that shouting was not only appropriate, it had to happen for that move of God to be complete. And if the rocks can shout out a praise, certainly you and I oughta shout, Amen!
Whether it’s a hallelujah shout or a “please help me” cry, He hears us. Not only have I cried out for rescue and given a victory shout to the Lord, I have also been known to shout at the enemy. Sometimes you just need to tell him to back off!
The enemy has no authority in your life if you don’t give him any. Jesus defeated the enemy a long time ago so it’s not your job to fight Satan. That fight’s been won. It is your responsibility to resist him.
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Stop wasting time and energy fighting a fight that has already been won. – James 4:7
Shout that at the devil. He hates that as much as he hates hearing your shout of victory to the Lord. Maybe more.
