I woke up early this morning to an image of my friend who is an architect, his office. In his office there is a bucket of rolled up blueprints. As I saw this bucket of rolled up blueprints the Lord immediately said to me “The scrolls are blueprints.” I came downstairs to my sanctuary and immediately Luke 4:17 comes into my spirit, “The scroll of the prophet Isaiah was handed to him. Unrolling it, he found the place where it is written:” The scroll of the prophet Isaiah.
I look up the definition of scroll in both the dictionary, the Greek and the Hebrew and I learn, scrolls were used for manuscript administration documents intended for various uses including accounting, rent-rolls, legal agreements and inventories. (Wikipedia) Blueprints serve as a model or provide guidance; they are detailed plans or programs of action. Synonyms for blueprint are master plan, strategy, road map, scheme or system. Words are powerful and their definitions give us insight into what God is saying.
I go outside to pray with these thoughts in my mind and today I am praying with Psalm 94. When I complete my prayer time with Psalm 94, knowing the scrolls are blueprints and Psalms is a scroll, the Lord speaks to me and says, “Psalm 94 is a psalm of salvation for your nation.” I say back to the Lord, then Psalm 94 is my salvation declaration for this nation!
Here are just a few decrees you can make from this Psalm…
V.11 – The LORD knows all human plans; he knows that they are futile.
V.20 – Can a corrupt throne be allied with you— a throne that brings on misery by its decrees?
V. 22 – He will repay them for their sins and destroy them for their wickedness; the LORD our God will destroy them.
The scrolls are the blueprints says the Lord, now take the scroll, make a salvation declaration over your nation and eat the scroll for it is God’s strategy for our deliverance. Have a great Sunday!
