DECLARATION: The anointing of God is present to break every yoke in the name of Jesus. Doors are being open! I’m going to subdue nations and loose the armour of kings. I’m opening before me the double doors. Gates are being OPEN and stones are being removed. The King of Glory is coming in. Every barrier before me will move by the virtue of the resurrection power of Jesus working in me. I stand by the power of the Holy Ghost and speak to those mountains, I speak to those gates and I say to them: “in the name of Jesus, be OPEN NOW!!!” (Isaiah 45:1).
Jesus knew that after His death, 3 days later, the stone will be removed from His grave and He will be resurrected; that’s why He said, “IT IS FINISHED” (Psalm 30:5).
DECLARATION: I’m looking to Jesus today for He is the Author and Finisher of my faith.
Sunday has come with its resurrection power to replace the sorrow on Friday (John 11:25-26). (1 Peter 1:3; John 14:19; 1 Corinthians 15:1; Romans 14:9; 8:11) because of Christ’ resurrection, we live today and we have hope and everything about us is not in vain – our words carry resurrection. The Spirit of God dwells in us and we have the resurrection power.
The curtain was torn into half and the stone on the tomb was removed for the Spirit to move from dwelling in places made by human hands to dwelling in our hearts so that we can worship Him in spirit and in truth. It is not by where you are but by what you have (John 4:23).
(Mark 16:2-5) We are looking up for there is power when we look up. Spiritual barriers are placed by demonic agents to prevent us from moving forward, just as the stone was placed on Jesus’ tomb to prevent the disciples from going in. May the angel of God sit on every stone in our lives so that we can go in. I’m going forward for I serve a forward-looking God. The worst place to reach in your spiritual walk with God is to be stagnant. God wants you to fulfil your destiny and progress but the enemy wants to keep you caged and sets impediments to prevent you from moving into your promised land.
Are you caged by the enemy for too long like a parrot that you have forgotten your ability to fly and your destiny? Remember God has anointed you to soar. Many of us have received deliverance but still we walk around as if we are caged because we have not allowed God to deal with that stronghold. Demons can be cast out but we must work with God to pull down strongholds in our minds (2 Corinthians 10:4). Until the stronghold is broken, you cannot operate in the freedom of the Spirit.
QUESTION: Am I truly living in the resurrection power that God has for me? I’m I freed yet still in bondage?
Today we are going into the promised land by the power and the virtue of the blood and name of Jesus. We are coming out from the cage, moving farther away from the cage and matching towards our destiny.
DECLARATION: I’m going to fulfil my destiny and I will not allow anything to stop me from getting there. I’m going to rise up above any stone/barrier that stands in my way.
QUESTION: What is Lazarus in your life? Your spiritual life, marriage, finances, destiny, family, etc?
(John 11:1-44) Lazarus was raised from the dead only to die again, but Jesus was raised from the dead never to die again. Allow God to take away the stone for He is here. God is saying, “take away the stone”, meaning that the barrier should be taken away.
DECLARATION: Every barrier holding me down, by the virtue of the blood of Jesus, is loosing me NOW! In Jesus name!
(1 Corinthians 16:9) The enemy should be behind us not before us. He is a loser. We are fighting a loser so why are we afraid of him? The aim of barriers is to slow us down.
How to overcome barriers:
1. Put your confidence in God (1 Samuel 17:45-47; Proverbs 3:5-6)
2. Let the anointing flow (Isaiah 10:27)
