THE BATTLE IS WON IN THE SECRET PLACE
As I sat with the Lord today I had such an excitement and anticipation for what He would say as I felt the presence of the Lord so strongly. I really asked the Lord what He wanted to say about the season we are entering and He said, “The battle is won in the secret place. I am calling my people to prayer and time spent with Me. From there they will marvel at what I will do.”
I then had a vision of people earnestly praying. The people were also wearing and operating in the full armour of God. I noticed they weren’t missing any piece of the armour and were using every piece in their battle. Ephesians 6:14-17 - Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled round your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
In the vision I saw two groups of people. In the first group, as the people stepped out of intimate time with the Lord and operating in their full armour, I saw rainbows suddenly hitting the areas in which they had been praying for breakthrough. I had a sense that in some cases people had been praying for a long time to see breakthrough and the promises of God fulfilled. I saw rainbows hitting dry ground; so dry it had deep crevices and cracks. Rainbows were hitting different places for different people depending on the area in which they had been praying for breakthrough. Some rainbows were hitting people’s hands (resources they needed), some were hitting people’s hearts (emotional healing) or bodies (physical healing) and others were hitting their situations (family, situation, personal or ministry breakthrough). Everywhere people were stepping, rainbows were hitting the area they had battled for in the secret place.
In the second group, as these people stepped out of intimate time with the Lord and walking wearing their full armour, keys were falling into their hands. I then saw them go back into prayer and intimate time with the Lord to determine how and when to use the keys they had been given. When they had revelation on how and when to use these keys to bring breakthrough, they then stepped out in confidence and rainbows were hitting their circumstances and they saw breakthrough manifesting in the area of their need.
I feel the Lord is saying that we need to understand the power of prayer and the importance of operating with the full armour of God. Now is a significant time in the Spirit and the Lord wants to give us strategies and revelation on how to move forward in Him to see the plans and purposes He has for us unfold. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective (James 5:16). As we stand in faith and prayer for the fulfillment of God’s promises in our lives, using the full armour available to us, we will see breakthrough and the promises fulfilled. We are to pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17) and to be vigilant in prayer with thanksgiving (Colossians 4:2). When our prayers are God’s will, we can have confidence He has answered. 1 John 5:14-15 says - Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him. I heard the Lord say, “If they battle in the secret place my people will call this month ‘Miraculous May’ as they will marvel at all I will do for them and the revelation I will give them. I want them to partner with Me in seeing the promises fulfilled.”
Let us put on the full armour of God and battle in prayer in the secret place as we partner in seeing heaven come to earth and see the Lord work on our behalf. We will then call this month ‘Miraculous May’ and we can testify of all He has done for us.
