Isaiah 11:5 (NKJV) – Righteousness shall be the belt of His loins, and faithfulness the belt of His waist.

During this time of nefarious theater, it is wise of us to look back at what the prophet Isaiah said about our God. Righteousness and faithfulness belong to Him for His people! Because He is just and righteous, judgment is His to wield. Unlike the demoniacs of Hamas who enacted and unprecedented and unprovoked attack on the nation of Israel, we must fall on the rock before the rock falls on us. (Matthew 21:44)

Declaration: The devil has no authority over me. He lost his authority at the foot of the cross on Calvary. Any voice I hear that tells me lies is not of God. King Jesus will always be my righteousness and hope in this world! In Jesus’ name, Amen!


The people of God need to hold on to Truth during times of war and desolation. I’m not just talking about the warfare of the world and its nations but the battle within ourselves. How many times have you heard the voice of lies telling you, “you are not enough,” or , “what makes you think you matter?” My friends, these are lies from the pit of hell, and I would entreat you, do not talk to snakes!


The world seems to be holding its breath to see what will happen next. This is the perfect opportunity for the Church to rise up and declare the power and the wonders of our God! Jesus Christ, the Desire of all nations (Haggai 2:7), is with us, and He is the answer!

Surrounded by enemies or opposition? He will fight for His people (Exodus 14) and empower them to overcome their enemies! (Deuteronomy 28:7)


Afraid for the future? He has good plans and a hope for us, He will direct our steps if we trust Him! (Jeremiah 29:11, Proverbs 3:5-6)


Overcome by sorrow or anxiety and depression? He gives us the very opposite! Isaiah 61:3, “To console those who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; That they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified.”


As the Body of Christ, we are to reach out to those in need and help lift them up, empowering them however we can; feed the hungry, heal the sick, cast out demons, cleanse the lepers. It is our great privilege to get to be the hands and feet of King Jesus! The battle belongs to the Lord, we as the children of God get to reach out and spread His love and mercy, and to bring beauty for ashes.


Strengthen the weak hands, and make firm the feeble knees. Say to those who are fearful-hearted, “Be strong, do not fear! Behold, your God will come with vengeance, with the recompense of God; He will come and save you.
Isaiah 35:2-4 (NKJV)
