I am calling out for a fierce determination to arise within my people.
This is not a fierceness as in violence against flesh and blood, but a power-filled tenacity that comes from a deep instinct to raise a standard for my name. It’s a determined stance that opposes the works of the enemy!
Today, would you grab hold of my fierce love and holiness? Would you allow my zeal to be a consuming fire that comes out of you to burn up my enemies?
Respond to my call and say, ‘Yes, Lord, make me one who instinctively embraces your holiness and determinedly resists the aggressive attempt of the enemy to steal, kill, and destroy.’ If you will do this, passion and zeal for my holiness will become a fire that envigorates you to become one who says, ‘NO!, we will not allow the plans of the enemy to succeed in Jesus’ mighty name! But instead, we will raise up and hold the standard of VICTORY and RIGHTEOUSNESS for our God goes before us!’
John 2:16-17 NIV
To those who sold doves he said, “Get these out of here! Stop turning my Father’s house into a market!” His disciples remembered that it is written: “Zeal for your house will consume me.”
Psalm 97:1-3 NIV
The LORD reigns, let the earth be glad; let the distant shores rejoice. Clouds and thick darkness surround him; righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne. Fire goes before him and consumes his foes on every side.
