Release The Captives - Devotion from the Valley News, Temecula

Release The Captives
By Lynn Donovan

There are many of My children who have languished in this end-time season, locked in the enemy’s prisoner of war camps. The barbed wire of disillusionment and abandonment, gouge and leave bleeding scars. Through this extended, grueling season of illness, persecution has devastated their very soul. They are prisoners of war, left abandoned on the plains of battle. Whispers of finality through betrayal, hopelessness, apathy and fear are the lies that fortify their restraints.

These are My Beloved Children who love Me and once believed in My truths and Kingdom. But the blows of darkness birthed perceived falsehoods, speaking the lie that I was unaware of their sufferings. They turned toward the lies that My Sovereign hand somehow allowed the brokenness and tears overwhelmed their faith.

From My Throne; My voice thunders in peeling crack of raw emotions and booming love.

It is NOT SO!

My love and power are always enough to liberate every soul.

You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book. —Psalm 56:8

I have wept with you as I collected every tear as a token that restitution is due. I have stored each droplet that cries out for vindication of all that the enemy of life has stolen.

Today, My children who are beset by bitterness and strife, determine your heart to trust Me again. Pray. Speak to me again, for I never left you alone. People may have failed you, left you devastated, lost in rejection, but I stand for you. I am your hope, redemption, your healing, life and I have every answer to your questions. I AM your place of refuge.

Delay not another moment. Release your heart to Me. I’m a moment away. Your faith and My love are your healing script. Pray without ceasing and never give up.

He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever. —Revelation 21:4

*****

Today, I will pray with purpose, power and belief, using the Word with conviction, confidence and finally with unfailing courage. I will not relent or give up or give in. I will stand for goodness, honesty, integrity, and truth. I will love lavishly and forgive easily. I will offer hope and a hand to those who I can help, and I will always and forever remain loyally in love with my Jesus.

This is my high and holy calling, and I will believe nothing less. In the name of Jesus. Amen and Hallelujah!!!

The Climate of Shalom

By Lynn Donovan 

The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.
 — Deuteronomy 31:8 (NIV)
 

In this world you will face fear, pain, struggles, trauma and an abundance of difficulties. But, you the chosen one of God, be of great cheer, filled with the Shalom of heaven. Walk every day in supernatural, unexplained joy and peace of the Kingdom! For I have overcome this world of struggle for you. I hold the Key of David and beckon. I open the gates of peace and you are welcomed.

Today surrender your questions of why. Give unto me your need for explanation. Place into my scarred hands your disappointment, offense, fear, failures and broken dreams. Today, for this day, step into the climate of Shalom and truly live in My peace. Receive My love that redeems your heart from the fears of the world. My perfect love casts our all fear, doubt and strife.

It is our Father’s good pleasure to give you the keys to the Kingdom. Step into Shalom and feel My love. My love and joy will empower you to love others with a full heart, free from fear and worry.

Hallelujah!!!!! 

I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world. —John Chapter 16:33

Father God, today, I step into your perfect peace. I give you my need to know “why.” I will stand on the faithfulness of your Presence in my life. You said you will never leave me nor forsake me. This is where I choose to live today. I receive Your blessings of perfect peace over my mind, heart, body, will and emotions. I am covered by the blood of Jesus. I choose to walk in Your love and truth. In Jesus name. AMEN

Shout With Me!

Ld heaven
The Army of the Living God is shouting. Can you hear it?

The voice that rose, distant, from a whisper in the wilderness, is now rising.

The decree: On earth as it is in heaven.

Upon the tongue of every believer. Over and over and again. The Saints shout in unity – through intercession, reaching a frenzied force as their voice echoes and repeats the cry of the angels, en masse:

On earth as it is in heaven.

The demons scream under the onslaught of the consecrated sound. Their frenzied efforts of hate, division and destruction fortify.

In reply, the Saint’s shouts grow louder:

On Earth As It Is In Heaven!

The cry declared over and louder still. The sound fills the universe in a holy crescendo. The sound shouts down the demonic in a single day. This holy chant, loud and proud, full of faith and power.

ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN!

The day of the decree is NOW. We wait in eager anticipation as God is poised, on the precipice.

It’s Revival.

A Revolution.

Bring it forth, the faithful of Christ. Shout it out this hour:

On Earth As It Is In Heaven!

The clouds part, the sky rolls up, silence breaks.

Behold, THE LAMB OF GOD!
