God is Coming With a Knock-Out Punch to the Enemy

It’s time to shake off the disorienting and stunning hit you took and rise up “in His strength and might!”

“But mightier than the violent raging of the seas, mightier than the breakers on the shore— the Lord above is mightier than these!” Psalms 93:4

Have you felt like you’ve been the underdog in a boxing ring with an opponent that has knocked your feet out from under you with his punch? If so, know this…THE LORD IS MIGHTIER THAN THAT WHICH HAS BEEN SENT AGAINST YOU!

I felt my spirit rise up this morning as I declared, “I am arising in the might of my God!” Many lives have been hit so hard that they have fallen to their knees. But the enemy has forgotten that for the believer, victory is accessed on their knees. It’s not in their strength, but often in their weakness that the power of God takes over!

“The LORD your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in His love, He will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.” Zephaniah 3:17

He is mighty to save you! You may feel knocked down but you are not knocked out! It’s time to shake off the disorienting and stunning hit you took and rise up “in His strength and might!” Let your spirit arise while on your knees and watch God release His victory punch on your behalf.

This is your “Rocky” moment! The enemy is rejoicing and dancing in victory a bit too soon. He thinks you’re down for the ten count, but suddenly I hear the count go from “one, two, three, four, five…” to “five, four, three, two, one!” There is a reversal and I see God’s people rising up in victory. As the count is reversed the sound is like a mighty punch upon the enemy that will take him down by the might of God. As you are rising up in your spirit, your enemy is going down!

“…It is not by force nor by strength, but by My Spirit, says the LORD of Heaven’s Armies.” Zechariah 4:6

The battle belongs to the Mighty One, the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. Suddenly you will rise and laughter and joy will fill you with renewed strength. There will be no trauma left, no mark left of what hit you because there is a supernatural reversal.

Get ready to see the Spirit of the Lord bring you an unprecedented victory! You may have been seen as the underdog in this battle but because you have put your hope in the Lord, He is coming in might and power to save you and restore you.

If you are down today after a “knockdown blow,” while you’re down, begin to declare, “May God arise and my enemies be scattered!”
