Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life (John 14:6), we all agree, correct? We also would agree Scripture tells us to speak the truth in love (Ephesians 4;15), right? Our mandate is to speak love and life to the jars representing the great states of our nation, and as we speak love and life, we declare truth. There is a difference in what is true and what is Truth, bear with me.
Jesus is Truth – in Him we find freedom, we are created new, we are righteous, we bear fruit – basically our identity is in Him. When we speak Truth, we are declaring who we are in Him and what His plans and purposes are for us.
In speaking what is true, we are declaring what is true in this moment, whether positive or negative. This will actually keep people (or nations) bound. Because we are made in the image and likeness of God, we have the ability to create with our words. When we give our jars, or other people, our two cents of what we see as true in their lives, we do them a disservice. We are not speaking the Truth in love, we are only telling them what they already know is true. To rise above this compulsion, we must be future minded and begin to declare who they are in Christ and thus speak Truth to them! There are many people out there speaking what is true over our nation, let us not come into agreement with them, let us speak Truth over our nation!
This week’s directives:
- Speak love, life and mercy over your jars of dirt. Thank God for all 50 states being represented, and how His great love conquers all, covers all, and never fails. Speak Scriptures over your state confirming His love.
- Continue to declare how much our nation loves its people, from pre-born to elderly; how valued each person is; how precious in the sight of the Lord and how He has a purpose for every life. This is Truth, declare it! Shout it! Sing it!
- Prophesy to your state’s government, bless and do not curse, give God thanks and praise for the government. Make war against the enemy utilizing the fruit of the Spirit and praise.
- At every opportunity, reverse what is truly spoken with Truth that is also the way and the Life.
Blessings, hugs and much love!
