Isaiah 62:10 “Go through, go through the gates; prepare ye the way of the people; cast up, cast up the highway; gather out
the stones; lift up a standard for the people.
” (KJV)  

There is a battle in the gates to your future, but God is calling you to rise up and contend for your entry through
the gates of opportunity into your destiny with the Sword of the Spirit! The body of Christ is in various stages of
transition into a whole new dimension, being made ready for His “greater glory” outpouring to establish His
Kingdom and the stones of stumbling have to be taken out of the way. The standard is holiness without which no
man shall see the Lord and His banner over us is Love.

Identify your enemies

Ask the Lord to reveal to you the identity of your enemies. Let your spirit man rise up in the strength and power of
the Lord and confront your enemies of fear, doubt, hopelessness, confusion, double-mindedness, slothfulness,
procrastination and self-love that are blocking you from passing through the gates.  These are some of the ones
that you allow to rule over your soul area, and reign in your mind, and by them being revealed to you by the Holy
Spirit, you can break with their rule.  

Then there are the onslaughts of the enemy that are coming at you from the outside, mostly through negative
words coming from others, some even close associates.  Do not underestimate the Leviathan spirit that twists the
truth and sows discord with false accusations.  Break the curses that are coming against you, your relationships,
your family, your ministry or business by forgiving these people.  Call the victory of the blood against it and bless
those who persecute you.

Put on your war mantle and deal with every attack by the authority of the name of the King, Jesus Christ, by the
power of His Blood and the Power of the Word of God.  Don’t allow the devil to steal from you, but take the
Kingdom by force!

3 Keys for Overcoming

There are 3 keys given to us to overcome any obstacle:

Revelation 12:11  “
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not
their lives unto the death.
” (KJV)

Firstly, let us stand on the finished work of Calvary.  Jesus overcame every obstacle for us with His precious
Blood and in His power and strength we are more than conquerors.   So, know your authority in Him and by His
Name and come under the protection of the Blood through repentance and forgiveness.

Secondly, be fully persuaded by faith that you are an overcomer and out of the abundance of your heart, let your
mouth bring forth the testimony of His Glory.  Speak the word of faith and command the mountains to move and fall
into the sea in Jesus’ Name!  Live by faith, speak by faith, and walk by faith.

Hebrew 11:1 “
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."  (KJV)

When I open my mouth and speak the word of God by faith, I release substance into the atmosphere that will effect
change.

When I speak to the mountain of obstruction, it will fall into the sea, because I speak by faith.  Take authority over
the negative situation in your sphere of influence and speak the word of the Lord against sickness and disease,
financial lack, relational problems, etc and let the Sword of the Lord bring salvation, deliverance and healing as
you go.

So let us weigh our words before we utter anything, listening for the heart of God in the situation and counter
anything negative with the creative word of life that will bring forth that which we hope to see.

Thirdly, reckon with the enemy of sin, your flesh, and the world.   Ask the Lord to expose every trace of its working
in your life.  Face up to it with the Sword of the Spirit, deal with it without mercy and die to it now.  We can only
overcome by the life and power of the Holy Spirit to walk on the highway of holiness.

A Word for the Downcast

The Lord has given me a word today for those who are downcast in hopelessness and despair, and He is saying,
“Take courage and rise up in the strength that I provide.  Do not give up, but pursue your goal with steadfast faith
in Me, one step at a time.”  

Perseverance to persist

If you have lost vision, or maybe you do not even have clarity of vision, ask the Lord today to restructure your
vision according to His blueprint for your life.  Then set your mind and heart in alignment with His will and Word
and pursue that vision by faith until you see the manifestation thereof.

Isaiah 60:1 “
Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee."

Proclaim your victory in songs of deliverance and declare the prophetic word in the gates so that the angels can
go forth, opening the double doors of favor for you.

Prayer and declaration:  Father, in the Name of Jesus we now declare the victory of Calvary in  the gates to our
future.  We ask that you release the angelic host to remove the enemy from our gates and change the guard, to
guard the way into our destiny. Amen, so be it!
