Stand, Lead, Occupy!

God is raising you up, to raise up His standards within the earth! Will you step forward and be His voice?

God is raising up godly leaders. I saw where there has been and is currently great distraction coming against these righteous ones being called into positions of leadership! Beware of the trap set for you that is a distraction! Distraction leads to destruction! 

Godly men and women – if you, do not step into your rightful position, the space will be filled by someone else. The next person in line may very well have evil motives and selfish intentions. At the very least they may not lead according to His good purposes and will. If you continue in complacency and fail to take your place, another soul will step in. They may lead without righteousness, giving way to a detrimental spirit of compromise in the very arena you have been called to occupy!

For every righteous leader that doesn’t occupy your god-given position, no matter how small and insignificant the role may seem, there is an ungodly leader ready to take your place. The results could be severe manipulation and even victimization of innocent followers. You must begin to partner with God as He is looking to fill these positions. There is a quickening happening – a “rearranging season” coming, as He strategically positions His people for preparation in the days to come.

Many will be looking for strong leadership in the days ahead! You people, who have been watching what is going on, who live according to Biblical standards, and are unafraid to stand for truth, you are the very leaders who God has been fortifying in the secret place. He will be looking for you to align with other godly leaders, and pioneers in the days to come! Get ready! You are the very ones who must not doubt yourself and God’s calling upon your life! Yes, He has called you, and you know it deep within your spirit! When God opens the door of opportunity for you, you must take your place, lead, and occupy!! As you step out in faith and obedience, He will strengthen you and increase your influence. 

When this time comes, do not listen to the haters or your own voice of self-doubt. Listen only to the voice of God! Things are greatly shifting in the world today and the spiritual atmosphere around you, but God has designed you for such a time as this! He has tested, and prepared you for this! To lead with great success, you must learn to recognize the enemy’s tactics against you, to try to make you complacent, weary, or fearful. You must also resist the great temptation of distraction.

God-fearing one, no matter how hard the role is that God is calling you into, no matter the assignment, even if your palms are sweaty and your knees are shaking, you must assume your rightful seat and step out in faith. No matter the personal weaknesses you are facing, or have always faced, you must move forward with courage. Yes, these personal weak spots have hindered you in the past. Many times, your unique setbacks have been difficult, almost impossible to overcome. However, you must not allow the enemy to use these thorns in your side to disqualify you. Instead, allow the thorns of weakness to keep you humble and dependent upon God’s ability to do it through you. Be strong and courageous! Now is the time! 

Lean not, on your own understanding! In the days coming, it will be vital to have supernatural strength and intel. It is absolutely necessary that you learn to lean on God like never before! Others will be looking to you, and you’ll help teach them to do the same. Do not doubt yourself and what God has called you to. Remember, everyone has personal limitations, flaws, and weaknesses. Don’t allow the enemy or yourself to magnify your weak spots, paralyze you and cause you to shrink back in fear! Beware, trusted one, lest your FEAR lead to outright disobedience!

Look at how God called Moses to be a great leader, even with his stutter or speech delay. Perhaps God called Moses, partially because of his great and obvious weakness. Moses had to learn to trust the Lord. Moses had to get into the secret place and meet with God alone to get wisdom/instructions, and you will too. God will be faithful to provide the necessary resources (He has unlimited resources) to complete the task at hand, and He’ll provide specific people, (He knows exactly who you need), to come alongside you, who will help cover these personal blind spots. 

Righteous one, no matter the circumstantial challenges, do not delay! Assume your rightful position of sonship and leadership. Step out in faith! God is with you, and He promises to fully equip you and go before you. 

When a door opens for you and you sense it is something God wants, be careful you don’t fall into complacency and take the easy route! Do not be tempted to fear the weight and responsibility more than God. STEP OUT and STEP INTO it! He will work out all the details. He will give you the words you need at that very moment. Remember, God has prepared you for such a time as this! TRUST Him to accomplish big things through you!

God is raising you up, to raise up His standards within the earth! Will you step forward and be His voice? Will you step forward and represent His Kingdom?

Righteous one, the Lord’s hand is upon you! Stand, lead, and occupy!


“Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go. Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” So Joshua ordered the officers of the people: “Go through the camp and tell the people, ‘Get your provisions ready. Three days from now you will cross the Jordan here to go in and take possession of the land the Lord your God is giving you for your own.’ ”

Joshua 1:7-11 NIV
