Prophecy: Stand Your Ground and Prepare Your Weapons Against the Enemy BY HAKEEM COLLINS for Charisma News
As we are in a new decade and prophetic time of reset, the Lord is giving His people new strategies and new sets of rules of engagement to gain the upper hand over the enemy. Therefore, when we end one year strong, it is equally important to start a new one even stronger.
This is a time to watch as well as pray.
As there are those who have committed to fasting in a time of intense prayer, consecration and solidarity before the Lord, the enemy will take advantage of the opportune time of vulnerability to tempt, distract and seduce God’s people into break their commitment, resolution, new goals and objectives. Counteract with Holy Spirit boldness and take a stance of resilience, perseverance and unwavering determination.
I was in prayer for the first seven days in the New Year, and I felt an unexpected attack on my health, finances, emotions and even my mental faculties. I couldn’t shake it, and suddenly I heard the voice of the Lord break through saying “Hakeem, what you are now experiencing is a barrage of unseen warfare surrounding you in the spiritual realm.”
God was giving me prophetic intelligence of the enemy plot and plan against my life. Suddenly, God took my mind to the Scripture story of the King Jehoshaphat who was surrounded by the Moabites, Ammonites and Meunites who waged war against him (2 Chron. 20:1-2).
There was formed against him an enormous army planning to invade the land, and Jehoshaphat didn’t know what to do as a king. There are many of you who feel like you don’t know what to do next, but God showed me that Jehoshaphat inquired of Him for wisdom while proclaiming a corporate fast throughout Judah (2 Chron. 20:3).
In this new season and decade, God wants to give His people strategies to overcome these invisible, unusual battles. This battlefield that you are in can be in your mind, will and emotions, and can be physical, financial or other things. Find a prayer partner or someone who will stand with you to fight on each other’s behalf.
