In this year ahead, I am raising my voice. I will speak loudly in the nations. I will give myself a platform in the media, education, political discourse, government and the law courts. Throughout diverse homes up and down the land, I will cry out with bellows that will cause foundations to crumble and windows to fly open. I will speak!
I call you to stand up with me, unashamed of my gospel. I have already stamped my seal of authority on your life – you are marked forever as mine – therefore, your mouth will also devastate enemy strongholds, and pull down religious constructions that once appeared vast and indestructible.
Are you ready for my fire? Say ‘Yes’, and I will ignite your zeal for me and my Word as a mighty Vesuvius of righteousness and power.
