I love to encourage you. And many times, as I am sharing what the Holy Spirit has spoken to me, it encourages me too. Isn't that good news?
God always multitasks everything; even the words that the prophets are prophesying: they encourage the prophets. I've talked to others like that—they're giving an exhortation, and it's exactly the word they need because this word is coming through us, but also can be for us.
As I was seeking the Lord and what He wanted to say, the Lord said to me three words: "Take it back." Take it back. And I knew what that meant.
This is a year of restoration and restitution. And the Lord was showing me that we need to intentionally go after the things Satan has robbed from us. What has happened? Is it a situation in your family that looks like it's a mountain and cannot be changed?
Through prayer, you take back your family. Or maybe it's finances during this terrible time of struggle many have been through. And these days of the crisis and the sickness—take it back. Say, "Satan, we are going to have the income we would have had, and we're going to double that."
So, I want to say to you, do not be passive in this season, or you will lose. You must stand upon the promises. You must evoke the promises. You must declare the promises. When the enemy comes against you like a flood, declare, "At this moment, God is raising up a standard against my enemy."
Whether you're in a lawsuit, whether you are in an impossible situation—remember this, impossible is not in the Christian dictionary. Take it back. Take what Satan has tried to rob from you, and you will surely be on the winning side.
