It’s Time to Take the Gloves Off

It’s Time to Take the Gloves Off
I saw a boxing ring. You were there, in the ring, and you were giving it all you had. There was blood. There was sweat. There was tears. And if I’m honest, you looked like you were about done. You looked worn out.

 

As I was there, watching you, I heard God say this:

 

Take those gloves off. You’re fighting this thing all wrong. You’re fighting a spiritual battle in the natural, and truth be told, if you keep fighting this way you’ll lose, but if you’ll take the gloves off and fight this as a spiritual battle, then I will win and My victory will be your victory. Fight FROM the victory, nor FOR it. Fight this spiritual battle with spiritual authority, from resting in My presence, and with the power of My name which has been given to you. Your enemy is not a person. I am restoring what has been lost.

 

I saw this several weeks ago, and I’ll be honest, I released this word at our church that I pastor here in my home town.

 

IT WAS SO POWERFUL. 

 

And then some really difficult things happened in my life. In fact, I faced one of my worst fears in the weeks following the morning I first released that word to my congregation.

 

In the midst of the most painful days of my whole life, God simply reminded me, “It’s time to take the gloves off, darlin”

 

I burst into tears. How cute. I thought that word was for everyone else, and yet God was preparing me for what was ahead. As He reminded me of this word, He showed me that there I was in the midst of this messy painful situation, but I had forgotten the very word that I had just released at church. I was fighting that thing all wrong. 

 

I checked myself immediately and began to rest in His presence. I began to exercise my spiritual authority over the situation. I began to declare and prophesy the word of the Lord over my situation.

 

Now don’t get me wrong, it was still no walk in the park, and there were times I had to check myself again, and get back into the right frame of mind. It was downright the hardest thing I’ve had to walk through in my life so far.

 

But let me tell you something: I GOT MY MIRACLE. I GOT MY BREAKTHROUGH. I WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED. 

 

God worked this trial together for good. God made my problems bless me. That’s what He does. What He did for me, He’ll do for you.

 

I pray this word blesses you and carries you through victoriously, resting and abiding in Christ.

Be Blissed!
