How to Release God’s Kingdom into the Atmosphere

Summary: The kingdom of God is within us and we can declare God’s truth into the atmosphere and change the world around us!

I have been canvassing for  a pro-life organization for work and God has been teaching me a lot.

One of the things He has been teaching is to declare and release His kingdom into the atmosphere.

I start by asking what is on His heart. For example, a word like “grace” will pop up in my mind. Then I ask where he wants that released to. Whether it is to a household or to the world, It literally changes the surrounding area!

Then I simply say, “In Jesus name, I declare and release God’s grace over the Cincinnati area.”

Genesis 1:3 says,  “Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light”.

Notice it was when God spoke that there was light!

Later in Genesis 1:27 it says, “God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.”

We have the power to create the world around us with the words we use like God.

Proverbs 18:21 says, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue,And those who love it will eat its fruit.”

So throughout out the day what are you speaking? Even those little utterances under our breath create a ripple effect!

Recently, I began to utter, “Holy sh.. is the Lord God Almighty!” Thanks for the catch God!

 

Application: How can you start partnering with God and declaring His truth into the atmosphere?

Prayer: Father God, I ask for an increase awareness of the words that we use and any word that does not advance Your kingdom, I pray Holy Spirit that you remove it from our vocabulary. I ask this is Jesus name. Amen.

Comments: I would love to hear what God has been telling you to declare into the atmosphere. Please share in the comments below!

 

 

The Joy of Being Broken By God

Last week, I wrote on God’s plan for brokenness and wanted to further elaborate on that post.

God’s plan for brokenness isn’t to break us and leave us there. Rather it is to show us the love, grace and mercy He has for us. The process of being broken may be painful for some. The pain is a direct correlation between how apart a believer lives apart from God.

You see God gave us all free will. He desires to be in relationship with each and everyone, but a relationship is a two way street. God will use any means necessary to break the thinking of our self-sufficiency.

He may lead you through a time where you are unemployed and wonder how you will survive. He may remove certain people that you have developed a co-dependent relationship with. He may use a situation to uncover sin in your life. He may even allow a tragedy, like the death of a loved one, in order to break someone.

You may be saying right now, “Why would I want to serve a God that takes a loved one away. That’s not fair!” Let me assure you that I have been there, but I am also reminded that God’s ways are not our ways!

It is in brokenness where God can shine light through a believer. Imagine a vessel that is completely enclosed and no light can shine through it. The only way to have light shine is to crack it. Then the (God’s) can shine through!

Prayer: Father, how grateful we are for your gift of brokenness. We thank you in advance for not leaving us broken, but to allow Your light to shine through us. Help us to not keep that light to ourselves, but to spread that light to the world. We pray this in Jesus name. Amen.
