Stand with Me reminds us there is no battle too big – we are not fighting in our own strength, we are not fighting in our own power. The battle is fixed, and we have already won.

  • 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 Daily Downloads from Heaven by Meghan Williams is connected to this. It’s called “Stand Ready.”

Psalm 45:3 (NASB) Gird Your sword on Your thigh, O Mighty One, In Your splendor and Your majesty!

Beloved, stand ready. Be prepared to fight at My command. You do not war against flesh and blood, but against supernatural powers that would move against you and against My Kingdom. But do not be afraid, for I have overcome the wicked one. 

Beloved, none can stand against Me. As My children stand with Me, they are aligned and prepared for victory. For I AM the victorious One. So stand. Resist the devil and all his efforts to move you. Stand in faith – unwavering. Stand with Me. 

Ephesians 6:12 (VOICE) We’re not waging war against enemies of flesh and blood alone. No, this fight is against tyrants, against authorities, against supernatural powers and demon princes that slither in the darkness of this world, and against wicked spiritual armies that lurk about in heavenly places.

A word called “The Battlefield” from Dorinda Agosto is connected to this.

The battle is fierce.  I look around and see all who have fallen, my heart melts with fear.  I hear Your voice on the battlefield telling us to be encouraged, to keep our eyes fixed on You.  You raise your gold shield to defend that which is Yours.  I run closer to You when something catches my attention.  I look away from You for just a second and I am pierced by an arrow of the enemy and I fall to the ground.  I try to get on my feet only to I fall back to the earth.  You look over Your shoulder and tell me, “Child, get back up!”  Again, I try to rise but the pain and the fear are unbearable.  I sink into back to the ground and sob, “I’m sorry Lord. I can’t.” 

You run and kneel down beside me protecting me with Your shield.  Your eyes are aflame and Your full glory is revealed.  You look into my eyes and tell me, “I will not leave you or forsake you.  I will renew your spirit and strengthen your body.  You WILL have your victory this day”.  Your eyes lock with mine and all I can see and feel is the warmth of Your love.  I am overwhelmed by Your healing touch.  All fear and pain is gone.  You extend Your hand to lift me to my feet. You smile at me and say, “Child, you are now a force to be reckoned with for My Holy Spirit has renewed you.”  

I start to praise you on the battlefield!!  “You have renewed my spirit with divine strength.  I will have no fear for You are with me.  Though my enemies surround me, I will not fear for You have prepared me for battle.  You have armed me with mighty weapons not of this world.  My praise is a weapon!  My voice is the banner I lift on high.  Victory is assured because You go before me and You are my rear guard.  Though the ground quake beneath my feet I will not be moved.  Though the winds howl, I will stand my ground.  Though the waters rage and the mountains fall, I will remain steadfast, keeping my eyes fixed on You.  HOLY IS THE LORD!!  HOLY IS THE LORD!!  HOLY IS THE LORD!!  VICTORY!! is assured!!  My eyes are on You Lord.  My eyes are on You.”

Beloved, do not fear that these trials will be never ending. These trials will cease. However, just as Joshua and the Israelites had to take the land God had provided for them it takes time before there is peace and rest on all sides. You are being established. You are taking root. You are right where God wants you. Don’t give up.  Keep pressing forward. Take the land, take the land, take the land flowing with milk and honey. It will refresh you. Refuse the lie that says it will always drain you and never bear fruit. Take the land. Take the land and never look back. Refuse to long for the old. Look forward to the new for God’s hand is there and He will sustain you. He is sustaining you.

Another Prophetic Nugget from Daily Downloads from Heaven by Meghan Williams is connected to this. It’s called “YHVH Gibbor Milchamah (the Lord Mighty in Battle) {Moments with God}.

{I declare} There is none like You. No one worthy – no one who can compare. No one can stand against You. And should they try, they would melt like wax before You if they stood as Your adversary. For there is no one like You in heaven or on earth. You are majestic and awesome – mighty beyond our comprehension. So I choose to stand with You. And come what may, I will remain steadfast, for by Your side is the only place I want to be. So where You are, I will be too. I trust You. I yield to Your plans. You are mighty and You are good. You are the Holy One. You are YHVH Gibbor Milchamah – the Lord Mighty in Battle. And You are worthy.

{Sensing the Lord’s presence hovering – like with the pillars of cloud and fire. In the same way Moses refused to move without the presence of the Almighty, so my heart stands fast with His presence. And I sense His pleasure over my unwillingness to move without Him. It’s as if He is giving a look that says, “Well done.”}

Psalm 76:7 (TPT) No wonder you are greatly feared! You are the awe-inspiring God! For who could ever stand before your face when your fierce anger burns and live to tell about it.

Exodus 33:15 (VOICE) If Your presence doesn’t travel with me, then don’t lead us away from here.

A portion of a post by Meghan Williams from is connected to this. It’s called “Waiting for the Red Sea to Part.

Exodus 14:10b-12: They cried out to the Lord, and they said to Moses, “Why did you bring us out here to die in the wilderness? Weren’t there enough graves for us in Egypt? What have you done to us? Why did you make us leave Egypt? Didn’t we tell you this would happen while we were still in Egypt? We said, ‘Leave us alone! Let us be slaves to the Egyptians. It’s better to be a slave in Egypt than a corpse in the wilderness!’”

LOL!  I totally know this feeling.  God walks you into a situation and it looks totally hopeless – so you get upset with God and start complaining to someone nearby.  But see in this case, God already talked to Moses about what was going on.  So here’s his response in v13-14:

But Moses told the people, “Don’t be afraid. Just stand still and watch the Lord rescue you today. The Egyptians you see today will never be seen again. The Lord himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.”

Just stay calm.  This is where our faith is shown.  We’ve trusted God enough to let Him walk us to the Red Sea, but when we are there faced with the seeming impossibility of a positive outcome… that is the moment our faith is truly tested.  But if we truly trust in Him, we should be able to be calm.  To rest in the shalom of the Lord.

Lest you think this is just one example of God making impossible situations only to show up in a big way, consider a few more examples:

  • The Lord whittling Gideon‘s army from 22,000 to 300 to give him the victory against the Midianites
  • God has Noah build an ark in the middle of land when it had never rained ever before
  • Abraham and Sarah giving birth to Issac years after God had promised and when Abraham was 100 and Sarah wasn’t far behind
  • Priests crossing the Jordan river with the Ark of the Covenant, waiting as river passed by before the land dried up in front of them
  • The walls of Jericho coming down from the Israelites marching around it seven times and shouting and blowing horns on the seventh time

The fact of the matter is that God likes showing up in a big way when the odds appear to be against Him.  It brings Him glory!  And (hopefully) in the process, builds our faith.

I (like many others I’m sure) am in a season where I am waiting for my proverbial red sea to part.  I’ve walked where I’ve sensed God has led me and now I am waiting for Him to do what He does… be God.

Lord, I just pray for all those who find themselves in this season of waiting on Your faithfulness.  I pray for grace and shalom in the midst of the onslaught of our senses.  We choose to trust You at Your word for You are God – You are not a man that You should lie – and You are faithful to Your children.  Be glorified in our lives!  In Jesus’ mighty name I pray…

Another portion of a post by Meghan Williams from is connected to this. It’s called “Fear Not, Stand Firm (Exodus 14:13-14).

God had me in Exodus today, in doing so I also checked out a blog from last year called Waiting for the Red Sea to Part. Today Exodus 14:13-14 jumped out at me: And Moses said to the people, “Fear not, stand firm, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will work for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall never see again. The LORD will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.”

As I mentioned in the previous blog, only in being silent or staying calm is where our faith is tested. Today as I pondered this I filtered these verses through a couple other things mentioned:

  • v21: it takes all night for God to dry the path for them to cross over
  • v27: in the morning He closes the sea

When you have an army bearing down on you, this salvation might not seem fast enough! You’d probably want to get zapped from one side to the other. But God doesn’t do it like that… He takes more time and tells them to be silent / stay calm.

Again this is a trust thing. Too often when we find ourselves in these seemingly impossible situations, we get frustrated that God doesn’t move faster… but if we really check our hearts isn’t that because we don’t fully trust Him to come through? So we want Him to come through leaving a larger margin for error…?

But God doesn’t make errors! And He loves us enough to want to stretch us to trust more. Why? Not because He wants to torture us! Because life is easier for US the more we trust Him. We stress less. We worry less. We can rest in Him because we know He’s faithful… not just when things are going well, but when the seem not to be, we can still wholeheartedly trust Him.

Thank You Lord for stretching us – even when it hurts – it is for our own good. Thank You for knowing how much we can take and not stretching us until we break. You are faithful and good… make us more like You!
