Eyes Fixed depicts a worshipping warrior – his eyes fixed on the glory of God, surrounded and protected by the Cross, and refusing to give the enemy his focus. Whom shall he fear when God is on his side? This is how he fights his battles.
- Ephesians 6:10 (VOICE) Finally, brothers and sisters, draw your strength and might from God.
- Ephesians 6:10 (TPT) Now my beloved ones, I have saved these most important truths for last: Be supernaturally infused with strength through your life-union with the Lord Jesus. Stand victorious with the force of his explosive power flowing in and through you.
A Prophetic Nugget from our Dyed4you Ministries blog is connected to this. It’s called “YHVH Nissi (the Lord my Banner).”
Exodus 17:15 (NLT) Moses built an altar there and named it Yahweh-Nissi (which means “the Lord is my banner”).
Beloved, I AM your banner, your miracle, your declaration of victory. Lift Me high. Exalt Me and lift your hands in holy reverence for I AM worthy of your praise. I AM a sign and a symbol to any who would look that you have been set free. You have overcome.
In honor of Me, lift your hands. In honor of Me, raise high your symbol of victory. Your unabashed faith in who I AM and willingness to hold nothing back are powerful messages in the spiritual realm. You declare Me faithful – your very actions announcing to any with ears to hear that I AM God and I AM worthy of your devotion. Praise Me for I AM good.
Bethel’s song “Surrounded (Fight My Battles)” is connected to this. The song reminds us that though there are moments we may feel like we’re completely surrounded, we must remember we’re surrounded by Him. As we focus on Him, that is our chosen method of warfare, for He is greater than any foe we could encounter, so of whom should we be afraid?
Another Prophetic Nugget from our Dyed4you Ministries blog is connected to this. It is called “I AM the Waymaker.”
Isaiah 43:16 (TLB) I am the Lord, who opened a way through the waters, making a path right through the sea.
Beloved, I AM the Waymaker. You need not be concerned as to how or why, just know I AM. In times of trouble, look to Me. As you do – as your faith and trust in Me is made evident in your actions and your praise – I AM lifted up. Like a standard of victory before a contending army, I AM YHVH Nissi. I AM the Lord your banner. Who can stand against Me?
I AM the Lord of the breakthrough and the restorer of your souls. I jealously guard you and love you beyond your wildest imaginings. I AM good. Refuse to be discouraged. Refuse to be impressed with the attacks that the enemy launches, refuse him the praise of acknowledgment and fix your eyes on Me, the author and finisher of your faith. Behold, I’m doing a new thing, watch as I bring the breakthrough.
Isaiah 43:16-19 (VOICE) This is what the Eternal One says, the One who does the impossible, the One who makes a path through the sea, a smooth road through tumultuous waters…Don’t revel only in the past, or spend all your time recounting the victories of days gone by. Watch closely: I am preparing something new; it’s happening now, even as I speak, and you’re about to see it. I am preparing a way through the desert; Waters will flow where there had been none.
A Prophetic Nugget from our Dyed4you Ministries blog is connected to this. It’s called “Keep Your Mind Fixed on Me.”
Exodus 28:36 (KJV) And thou shalt make a plate of pure gold, and grave upon it, like the engravings of a signet, Holiness To The Lord.
Beloved, keep your mind fixed on Me and My ways. Meditate on My word and let it so saturate who you are that your thoughts and deeds align with it without hesitation. Be so firmly rooted in My thoughts, that no suggestion that is in opposition – whether it be from human or spiritual origin – leads you astray.
Reject that which is not of Me and that which I declare evil. Refuse to give it place in your life. For beloved, the enemy will exploit any and every toehold he is granted, so refuse to give him access to torment you. Resist the devil and he will flee. Stand fast in truth, taking every thought captive, and offering holiness unto Me.
2 Corinthians 10:4-5 (GW) The weapons we use in our fight are not made by humans. Rather, they are powerful weapons from God. With them we destroy people’s defenses, that is, their arguments and all their intellectual arrogance that oppose the knowledge of God. We take every thought captive so that it is obedient to Christ.
James 4:7 (AMP) So submit to [the authority of] God. Resist the devil [stand firm against him] and he will flee from you.
A final Prophetic Nugget from our Dyed4you Ministries blog is connected to this. It’s called “Train Your Gaze on Me.”
Exodus 23:13 (VOICE) Be careful to do all that I have instructed you. Do not even acknowledge the names of other gods or let their names spill from your lips.
Beloved, refuse to acknowledge the enemy by giving him credit in your life. I AM your God and I will not share with another. Resist the urge to point at his opposition and use it as a barometer for your walk saying, “I know I am doing something right because he is opposing me.” The enemy will always oppose you because I love you. He will always lay traps to ensnare you because you are precious to me.
Look to Me, beloved, and keep your eyes fixed. Trust that I will guide you with My eye. Train your gaze upon Me never allowing it to waver. I AM the Lord your God. I AM the faithful God. Keeping My promises from generation to generation. My promise you have. My love you have. My acceptance you have. I AM all you need.
Psalm 32:8 (NKJV) I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.
Deuteronomy 7:9 (NLT) Understand, therefore, that the Lord your God is indeed God. He is the faithful God who keeps his covenant for a thousand generations and lavishes his unfailing love on those who love him and obey his commands.
One of the silks hidden in this image is called Breakthrough. The colors in it are earthy red representing apple of His eye, amber representing the Father’s heavenly care, mahogany brown representing depth of God’s love, and white representing triumph. The other silk in this image (the flag) is the Lion Protects His Cubs. The colors in it are orange representing Lion of Judah, dark red representing power in the Blood, dark gray representing crowned in humility, pea green representing flourishing, and sky blue representing seated with the Lord in heavenly places.
Lord, help us to remember to keep our eyes stayed on You, to cloth ourselves in the armor You’ve given, to be strong in You, and to remember the battle is raging in the unseen realm rather than the visible. Thank You for the promised victory!
