The word today from the Holy Spirit is ‘Break Out.’ Break out from your graves. Break out from your prison cell. Break out into another pathway. Break out into another level of authority. Break out into a higher level of walking with the Lord. Break out into a more ‘Christ-like’ thinking pattern.’
to open eyes that are blind, to free captives from prison and to release from the dungeon those who sit in darkness. Isaiah 42:7
Yes: Break out, is the word from the Lord in this time of transitions and realignments; for as we wait on the Lord of Hosts with eager expectation, the winds of the spirit will blow out the prison doors. Now is the time to look up and seek the Lord in this time of refreshing for the gates of the citadel are about to swing open. Now is the time to expect angelic visitations and sudden shifts in your walk with the Lord.
Now is a time of rejoicing for the prisoners will be set free and the songs of sorrow will become shouts of joy. The earthquakes of Gods grace are about to silt open the doors and chains that have bound us to our fleshly appetites.
He will yet fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy. Job 8:21
As I was receiving the word my thoughts turned to Paul and Silas in prison and this story has valuable lessons for us in this time of God bring break outs into the lives of this children. In Acts 16 we find these truths as follows.
Firstly Paul and Silas kept their focus on the Lord of Break Outs. Once we dwell on our circumstances we are vortexed into a black hole of chaos.
Secondly Paul & Silas were lifting up their voices in praise and worship, for in worship there is strength to assert our authority over the enemy.
Thirdly they were expecting a visitation from the Lord in answer to their thanks and worship. For with out faith one cannot please the Lord, nor expect his grace to fall on us.
Can I encourage you to look to Jesus the beginner and finisher of our faith and pray ourselves into our breakouts. Seek, ask and knock reminding God of his promises to us that he will set us on a higher plane and plant our feet on a new path. May I encourage us all to content for our ‘break outs’ until God comes in all his glory and lifts us into his chariots. Give thanks for our expectant break outs.
Declare break outs over our churches, our brothers and sisters in the faith and above all remain in his love.
