The Enemy is Attempting to Intimidate You by Lana Vawser
This week as I was sitting with the Lord I could see the tremendous warfare that many are going through in this hour. I saw so many different ‘tactics’ of the enemy to bring intimidation and cause God’s people to withdraw, shut down, pull back and stop moving forward. As I sought the Lord’s heart He spoke these words over those that are facing intense warfare, “The enemy is attempting to intimidate you out of your new realm of authority.”
There is a specific assignment of the enemy targeting many right now who are on assignment from the Lord, pioneering with Him the new thing that He is doing, and the enemy has come hard against them. I saw such intimidation coming against these ones and it is to cause you to ‘come off the wall’ and to withdraw. The push against you is to cause you not to PUSH THROUGH with the assignment the Lord has given you. You are actually moving into a new realm of governmental authority with the Lord in these new building projects that He has assigned to you and the enemy is furious.
But I heard the Spirit of God say, “Do not PULL BACK, PUSH THROUGH.” You must continue with what the Lord has called you to do. The Lord showed me a spirit of perversion that was also coming against many of God’s people to TWIST the word of the Lord in their lives and attempt to THWART their direction. The enemy is wanting to twist and cause turns in the lives of those that are on specific assignment with the Lord right now and cause you to ‘get off track’ and not move ahead with the assignment of the Lord. It is crucial right now that you remain true to the assignment the Lord has given to you and the word that He has spoken to you.
For the Lord says that He is coming with great empowerment to strengthen you for the days ahead and to empower you with greater clarity and vision than you have had before. “Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” (Isaiah 41:10 NASB)’
For you are not only contending for a move of God in this new realm of governmental authority that you are moving into in these new pioneering assignments with Him, but you are also contending for the nations that you live in. For the Lord showed me that the assignments that He has released to many of you in this are going to DIRECTLY IMPACT YOUR NATION! I kept seeing wheelbarrows and I knew each wheelbarrow represented the assignments the Lord had given to each one. They had the hands on the wheelbarrows and they were moving in the way and directions of the Lord in these new assignments.
I saw it began to rain from heaven. I was watching this beautiful water that was so pure, so crystal clear, yet when you looked closer was the purest gold, pouring into these wheelbarrows. They would fill and fill, then suddenly the wind of the Spirit would come and tip these wheelbarrows and a gush of pure water and pure gold would pour out and spread through the nations. Then the wheelbarrows will fill again and again the wind of the Spirit would come and TIP them and the water and gold would gush out again. This continued to happen over and over and over.
As the water spread through the nations I heard the words thundering “for the HEALING of the LAND” and the “BRINGING IN OF THE HARVEST.” I began to hear the sound of the goodness of God being sung all throughout the lands. What struck me was as each wheelbarrow was being filled all over the earth, all of these waves that were flowing out of the wheelbarrows would flow in different ways and different directions, yet they were all coming together to cover the land. Each one that was called to carry their wheelbarrow had a part to play in what the Lord was doing. They may have thought they were just tending their little patch of land, but not only were they tending their patch of land, but their obedience to pioneer and build with Him, staying in their lane and assignment was actually seeing the Spirit of God bring a shift and impact in the nation they were living in, in different ways.
Greater Angelic Assistance
There is greater angelic assistance that is being sent to you in this hour. I saw armies of angels being released all across the earth to bring messages, minister to God’s people, and protect households. I continued to hear the words “There are more FOR YOU than against you” and it reminded me of the story in 2 Kings 6:16-17 where Elisha prays for his servant. “So he answered, ‘Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.’ 17 Then Elisha prayed and said, ‘O Lord, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.’ And the Lord opened the servant’s eyes and he saw, and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.” (NASB)
ASK AND EXPECT the Lord to show you the angelic assistance that He has assigned to you in this hour. For many of you are going to have increased dreams and visions concerning the angelic assistance being assigned to you in this hour as you pioneer the assignment the Lord has for you in obedience. I also heard “Greater is HE that is in you then HE that is in the world” (1 John 4:4)
Yes the warfare has been intense, yes many of you are tired, yes the enemy is twisting and trying to bring confusion, intimidation, and fear, but greater is HE that is in YOU than he that is in the world. The Lord wants to remind you today of your victory in Christ. Yes, the enemy is furious about the new assignment the Lord has you on but that’s because of the move of the Spirit of God that is being released and going to be released through what you are pioneering with Him.
Remember, the enemy is terrified of you and what God is going to do through your life. Today, pick up that sword (Ephesians 6) and stand in your authority knowing that the Lord has not sent you on assignment without all you need to complete it. The battle is fierce, but the level of His Glory and power you are going to see through these assignments He has you on will be unprecedented. Be at peace warrior of God, He’s with you, He’s got you and He’s covering you. In Christ, you win.
