This morning the Lord gave me a word before we got here. As you were a kid you probably played the game hide-and-seek. You played it outside. You played it inside. You played it in your neighborhood and with your family. It was a cool little game. But the Lord is saying that when we played that game somebody was "it". The "it” person went looking for everybody else. So they were searching and when they came near us, we were afraid to breathe. Oh I don’t want to be found! I don’t want to be found! Well in the current environment we are hiding in our homes. We are hiding behind our masks. We are hiding from other people. We are hiding from gathering together, and we are hiding from going to church. But God says “Come out, come out wherever you are! Ready or not here I come!”
Good morning. When Josh was speaking about champions, I was asking the Lord "how is it that we can be a champion and how is it that as champion that we can shift something for God. How is it that we can shift the atmosphere?" And I felt like the Lord said: David was a great, great champion and when he came up against Goliath those are keys for us. Because he was not afraid for one thing and there is so much fear in the church and in the world right now. It's off the charts! And the fear you've got to stop fearing what the people out there are saying and have a healthy fear of God because that's what King David did. He had a healthy fear. He knew who he was, and he said I am coming to you Goliath in the name of the Lord. I come to you in the name of Jesus Christ my Lord and Savior. In order for us to shift the nation we need to chop the heads off of the enemies that are working in the nation. And if you don't know who they are then you need to find out. Because there are principalities and powers of darkness that we are up against and if we as believers are in fear we can't battle effectively. So when we are battling like King David we are confronting the enemy. When we are praying and asking God to bless us and bring the glory into the nation we are speaking to God. So it's two separate things. And so in order for us to shift we need to become bold people of God that will put the enemy in its place.
