Last night I had a dream and the Lord spoke very clearly and highlighted the word “FORTIFYING.”
Fortifying definition (and some synonyms): strengthen (a place) with defensive works so as to protect it against attack, strengthen, secure, protect, invigorate, strengthen, energize, enliven, liven up, animate, vitalize, rejuvenate, restore, revive, refresh. (Google.com)
The Lord showed me specifically how He is fortifying His people and what they carry, from the inside out.
Many of you have been knocked around, tossed to and fro by attack and opposition that has come against you lately. There has been a strategic assignment of confusion sent against you to hinder your vision, and your clarity, especially in hearing and discerning what the Lord is saying. I declare over you today that it breaks in Jesus name.
The Lord is fortifying you! He is using many things to fortify you from the inside out right now. His goodness, love and extravagant kindness is fortifying you. He is dealing with areas of the heart that have left you open to attack, mindsets that have not be renewed by His truth that have left you shaky and lacking strength, confidence and hope, He is healing you and bringing a new strength to you by the empowerment of His Spirit.
Coming Out with Increase
He is surrounding you as a wall of fire and His Glory will be in your midst. (Zechariah 2:5) He is fortifying your heart, your steps, and your roots in Him. This fortifying work of His Spirit will leave you stronger than ever. Moving into a position of thriving, not just surviving. He is refreshing, revitalizing and renewing you. He is restoring to you and restoring your steps in this fortification in any areas you have become shaky because of this onslaught.
You are coming out of this with an increase being added to what you carry.
He is with you, He is in your midst. Many of these battles have been over your next step of destiny. He is fortifying your anointing and your identity in Him. He is fortifying your heart and your steps, you are literally crossing over into a whole new realm of intimacy with Him, trust in who He says He is, the revelation of His goodness and kindness, a new level of strength in Him and solidity in His truth and what He speaks. You are moving into a new realm of favor and increase. This onslaught has tried to knock your steps out of place, but He is fortifying you and your steps, and in this fortification, you are being catapulted into a greater realm of your destiny.
He is protecting you and fortifying you through the fire, and you’re coming out strong against opposition and attack to move into the divine surprises of destiny He has for you and birthed as the overcoming warrior that you are!
