Empowered by Love reminds us the Source of our power: God, who is love. In His love we are mightily equipped for any good work He has for us. For love is a powerful weapon. And He has not left us friendless, for His heavenly hosts work with us through it all.
- Psalm 121:1-2 (ESV) I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come?My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
- Daniel 3:16-18 (AMP) Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego answered the king, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to answer you on this point. If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to rescue us from the furnace of blazing fire, and He will rescue us from your hand, O king. But even if He does not, let it be known to you, O king, that we are not going to serve your gods or worship the golden image that you have set up!”
- Hebrews 11:7 (AMP) By faith [with confidence in God and His word] Noah, being warned by God about events not yet seen, in reverence prepared an ark for the salvation of his family. By this [act of obedience] he condemned the world and became an heir of the righteousness which comes by faith.
- 2 Chronicles 20:17 (NKJV) You will not need to fight in this battle. Position yourselves, stand still and see the salvation of the Lord, who is with you, O Judah and Jerusalem!’ Do not fear or be dismayed; tomorrow go out against them, for the Lord is with you.
A Prophetic Nugget from “Daily Downloads from Heaven” by Meghan Williams is connected to this. It’s called “Love is a Powerful Weapon.”
Proverbs 15:1 (TPT) Respond gently when you are confronted and you’ll defuse the rage of another. Responding with sharp, cutting words will only make it worse. Don’t you know that being angry can ruin the testimony of even the wisest of men?
Beloved, love is a powerful weapon. Just as a gentle flow of steady water can change the face of stone, so love has the power to change even the hardest of hearts. So love well, and do so without reserve.
For you have been well equipped. I pour out My love over you – demonstrating My unconditional, limitless love for you each day. As you allow yourself to be saturated in My love, you are equipping yourself to pour it back out as you love others.
Give your love as an offering to Me. Resist the urge to love to gain an earthly response, but rather do it to My glory. Because I AM love. Therefore operating in love means you are flowing in Me. So love well. Love always. Love like Me.
A Word called “Rise Up” from Elisa Eaton of Waiting in the Wings is connected to this.
1 Peter 5:8 (AMPC) Be well balanced (temperate, sober of mind), be vigilant and cautious at all times; for that enemy of yours, the devil, roams around like a lion roaring [in fierce hunger], seeking someone to seize upon and devour.
Rise up, My people, rise up. The alarm sounds for the time of war, and I need you to be awake and vigilant. There is much territory for the kingdom of light to take, and I have fully equipped you to cast out the kingdom of darkness. Therefore, take care not to become lax and forget who you are and what I have called you to do. Resist the voice of defeat which would have you believe you are a victim of any earthly circumstance. Shake off the weariness of past battles fought in your own strength. A new day of war is ahead—a war already won by My might and My Spirit.
Behold, you are not ordinary—you are extraordinary, beloved ones. Your citizenship belongs to the Kingdom which is above. To possess a heavenly citizen carries more weight than you realize. You are My kingly priests anointed for war, commissioned to take territory in My name. Resist the urge to become overwhelmed or discouraged by your commission; everything that you need to walk in this high calling is found in My all-encompassing Presence.
I have given you heavenly armor that will protect you from every attack of the evil one. And by My Spirit, you carry My holy vessels into the earthly battlefield. No weapon formed against you can prosper. No judgment made against you can stand. And no battle is too fierce for you, My people. For the Lion of the Tribe of Judah is always with you. When you rise up, I arise with you. When you agree to follow My lead and take new territory, I fight on your behalf. Therefore, again I say, My people, rise up! Rejoice, for your victory is always assured!
Numbers 10:35 (NKJV) So it was, whenever the ark set out, that Moses said: “Rise up, O LORD! Let Your enemies be scattered, And let those who hate You flee before You.”
Numbers 23:24 (VOICE) Look at this people rise up like a lion, like a lion who gets up and does not lie down until it devours its prey, even drinking the blood of the slain.
A prophetic download from Naudia Willbroad is connected to this. It’s called “Powerful Love.”
A powerful love that cuts through the darkness. Nothing can stand against it. Our God reigns in our hearts and minds. No thought, mindset, disease or curse can stand against the weapon of God’s love. His spirit of Truth will demolish every stronghold. He will not let anything stand against His authority, His power, His kingdom’s reign. We are commissioned to stand with Him, arrayed in His power and authority to dispatch all darkness and bring His great light.
Do not falter Beloved. Do not delay. My coming is swift and sure. I will not delay. I do not deceive. I am with you, mighty in battle, in the thick of the fray. I do not delay nor do I hurry to do another’s bidding. My timing is My own. I know what you need. Do not worry or fret. Stand in My peace. Array yourself in My righteousness and truth. Dwell in the knowledge of My saving power. Do not be deceived nor be dismayed. I come. I Am here. I Am the Deliverer. I shelter you and cover you in the storm. I am with you Beloved. Stand with Me and join Me in what I do.
Another Prophetic Nugget from “Daily Downloads from Heaven” by Meghan Williams is connected to this. It’s called “Holy Passion.”
Numbers 25:13 (NLT) In this covenant, I give him and his descendants a permanent right to the priesthood, for in his zeal for me, his God, he purified the people of Israel, making them right with me.”
Beloved, burn with holy passion for Me. Zeal without holiness is too easily influenced by the flesh. So be mindful to pursue both – holiness and passion – that you might be righteous in your zeal and reflect My heart.
In your passion, sin not. Let Me set your heart ablaze, and burn away the dross that you might burn with a holy flame. Align your heart with Mine that the things that move Me might also move you. Feel and feel deeply, beloved, and allow your holy passion to be a mighty force for My Kingdom.
The song “Surrounded (fight my battles)“ by Elyssa Smith of Upper Room Music is connected to this piece. It reminds us that we are not alone when we fight battles on this earth. We have a army of angels at our disposal. The Father sends supplies out when needed. He goes before us, surrounds us on every side and guards our back. Let us walk in confidence, knowing that help is available and on stand by.
Another Prophetic Nugget from “Daily Downloads from Heaven” by Meghan Williams is connected to this. It’s called “All Power Comes from Me.”
Psalm 121:1-2 (ESV) I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come?My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
Beloved, keep your gaze on Me, for nothing on earth can strengthen and empower you more than I can. No one is a stronger advocate for you than I AM. And no one is more able to fight on your behalf. So resist the urge to look for human help as a first response, and instead look to Me.
Trust that I will direct you. Trust that I will instruct you. Trust that I will empower you. Trust that I AM all you need. I AM the holy One – Elohim Qadosh, the Holy God. Trust Me to do what is right, and know that all power comes from Me, for I AM God.
Another Prophetic Nugget from “Daily Downloads from Heaven” by Meghan Williams is connected to this. It’s called “Withhold Nothing.”
Hebrews 11:17 (VOICE) By faith Abraham, when he endured God’s testing, offered his beloved son Isaac as a sacrifice. The one who had received God’s promise was willing to offer his only son;
Beloved, withhold nothing from Me. Remember all you have is from My hand. So refuse to be like a dog growling at their master’s outstretched hand as it enjoys a bone that was gifted from that very same hand. Trust all to Me. Resist the urge to guard or withhold from Me that which you hold dear.
If I instruct you in My Word not to frustrate your children, do you think I will turn around and do the opposite of what I instruct? Trust Me. I give and I take away, but I AM always working for good. Simply because I remove something doesn’t mean you’re “in trouble.” Trust that I AM working for your good.
So be passionate in your faith of Me. Withhold nothing. Demonstrate by your actions the level of belief you have in who I AM and the nature of My character. Let your unreserved faith declare Me worthy to all.
Ephesians 6:4 (NIV) Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.
Job 1:21 (ESV) And he said, “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return. The LORD gave, and the LORD has taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD.”
A Mustard Seed by Larisa Chirila of Dyed4you is connected to this. It’s called “Shine Bright.”
John 1:5 (NLT) The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.
Your Heavenly Father has equipped you to shine bright as only You can shine! Your light and love is what will cast out darkness around you. His light and love are embedded in you and have taken such deep roots that it can never be taken from you.
He placed that fiery passion in you so that His seed will be spread all around. It naturally flows out of you wherever you go because just your presence, shines His light so bright that you don’t need to utter a word.
So Shine on!!!
A final Prophetic Nugget from “Daily Downloads from Heaven” by Meghan Williams is connected to this. It’s called “Love and Holiness, the Foundation of Your Passion.”
Daniel 3:17-18 (VOICE) If you throw us into the blazing furnace, then the God we serve is able to rescue us from a furnace of blazing fire and release us from your power, Your Majesty. But even if He does not, O king, you can be sure that we still will not serve your gods and we will not worship the golden statue you erected.
Beloved, refuse to compromise your faith. You know who I AM, so be steadfast in your belief – never wavering, but rather holding tightly to that which you know to be truth. For My Word has instructed you in truth. It is not subjective, but steadfast.
I AM love. But I AM also holy. True love clings to that which is good with steadfast devotion. So be holy as I AM holy, and walk in love because I AM love. Let these be the foundation of your passion: love and holiness. For zeal birthed from that place is a force to be reckoned with and a powerful tool for good.
The name of the silk hidden in this is His Heart in Battle. The colors in it are black representing intercession, turquoise representing warfare, indigo representing authority in warfare, and chartreuse representing hope.
Father, may we be steadfast in love. And just as the word Shalom refers to a peace that wars against chaos, may our love be so mighty it wars against hate and depression and all sorts of darkness. May we be powerful vessels for You as we walk in love and holiness.
