Arise, Stand Up

“Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13


From the Father’s Heart for you today:


In times when many are in despair and trembling and paralyzed by fear and mourning and looking for answers,

may My people STAND UP,


tap into that “stand-up strength” placed inside of them,

and speak My Word and truth,

unafraid of the naysayers

because the naysayers need the love and hope that I have to give.


There are solutions. I do have answers. Rumors of truth will not suffice.

People need truth, and it is clearly there in my unadulterated Word.

It must be spoken forth in truth.


You are My witness in whom I delight.


Call upon the name of the Lord and be saved. It’s that simple.

In times of trouble, in times of distress, cry out.

I hear and come and save you out of your distresses (Psalm 107:6,13,19,28).

Yes, you live in a world that is seeking to destroy your life (Psalm 63:9), but you are not of this world (John 15:19, Rom. 12:2). You were called out from among (2 Cor. 6:17).

So arise. Above the fray. Above the noise. Above the offenses and look to Me. Trust me.


Trust in the power of My Name and the power of My truth.

My truth does not bow and coward to misinformation.


I am not afraid of the lies or of the twisting of truth. I have told My people beforehand in My word that this was coming (just see 1 Tim. 4, 2 Tim. 3 for starters), and I have not been wringing My hands in dreaded anticipation of this day (this present age, Gal. 1:4, Titus 2:12) or any day past or in the future.


See, I still sit on My throne in heaven. And My sovereignty rules over all (Ps. 103:19). Do you believe that? Or not?
