A low hum has been happening in the atmosphere, it is a sound of an attack. If you have been sensing it, you know what I mean. It was not obvious or overt, but it was there, like a nuance. I could not put my finger on it, was it personal, was it regional, national, invidual, or corporate. I could not tell, but it was there. Maybe you sensed it the past week or so. Could it have been because of the Supreme Court case happening; the Ghislane Maxwell trial going on; the Jussie Smollet case being heard; the new variant being pushed; none of the above, all of the above, I was not sure, I just knew it was there. Then this morning in prayer, I could still sense it in the air, so began to inquire of the Lord specifically about it. No response from the Lord, so I began to pray Psalm 36.
Praying the word of God unlocks answers, puts cracks in dams of resistance and opens up fountains of living water that only the word can do. In verses 5-6 the character qualities of the Lord are identified: lovingkindness, faithfulness, righteousness, and judgments. As I begin to declare who God is, cracks start showing the in the wall of resistance I have sensed in the spirit. Crack, crack, crack, crack with every decree of who God is. Then in verse 8 the psalmist says, “They drink their fill of the abundance of Your house; and You give them to drink of the river of Your delights.” Now a bubbling is happening as the Lord reminds me we have access to abundance and rivers of delight. First cracks now bubbling, something is moving, something is changing.
Verse 9 “For with You is the fountain of life; in Your light we see light.” Life and light are revelation of truth and truth is freedom. It is a journey we are walking right now, cracks, bubbling and now truth, it is about to break, I can sense it, I can see it, I am prophesying it, You are light, You are life! Whatever was heavy is now light; whatever was weighty is now wafting away. Then the dam of resistance breaks wide open with the truth of verse 11 “Let not the foot of pride come upon me and let not the hand of wickedness drive me away.” That’s it, pride is anything to do with self, it seeks to come upon us, so we do things in our own strength, our own way. Let it not come upon me. What a prayer. What a decree. And let not wickedness drive me away, there is no retreat, no matter how wicked people act. Once that truth broke open the atmospheric issue left.
The word of God is the answer to every question we have. The voice of God as heard in the word of God, changes atmospheres as we seek Him. We are not under the foot of the enemy and his ideas of how to do things, and we are not going to retreat, no matter what wickedness he makes up. We will feast on the abundance of God’s, drink from His rivers of delight, and we will know truth that will set us and others free. This my friends is the truth that sets us free.
