July 2017, It Is Time, Janice Bell

It is time to take the land.
We have spied the land (this is where we live, circumstances, situations, relationships, places the Lord is leading us into) and seen the many blessings of God that are available to us, (healing, fruitfulness, provision, freedom, opportunities and so much more) but we have also spied the giants in the land, (giants of fear, negativity, lack including faith and trust).
It is time to overcome the giants and be able to receive the blessings of the Lord.
It is time to position ourselves in humility and pray and seek His face
It is time for consecration - to pray like King David: Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me and know my anxious thoughts; and see if there be any hurtful way in me, and lead me in the everlasting way.
It is time for a people to rise up from this position of victory with conquering attitudes of courageous warriors who are willing and ready to fight
It is time for a people to rise up with the same spirit as Caleb and Joshua
It is time to be like Caleb and Joshua who saw the possibilities or the opportunities that were ahead of them instead of focusing on the negative.
It is time to have complete trust in God to help us succeed.
It is time to believe as Caleb and Joshua that God will do as He has promised.
It is time for us to know that the Lord is with us and to consider our enemies as already defeated
It is time to recognize that the battle is already won.
It is time to wholeheartedly serve the Lord
It is time to ask the Lord for the different spirit, like Caleb that will cause us to go beyond surviving to receiving the inheritance promised through the cross of the Lord Jesus Christ
It is time for us to live in resurrection life
It is time to live as heirs, priests and kings to the Most High God.
It is time for us to function from our place of being seated in Jesus in the heavenly realms.
It is time for the people of God to believe, we can do all things through Christ Jesus who strengthens us.
It is time!
