The Father says today, I am your shield against every assault of hell. The enemy may increase himself against you and even use those closest to you to hurt you – but I am here, and there is nothing to worry about. Others look at you convinced that you are only getting what you deserve, but that is not the lens through which I look at you or your situation. The enemy rises against you in many ways, but they only put a target on their back that My arrows might find them and remove them far off. I am your protection. I am your provision. Though you could not find one person to stand with you, I am here, and I will never leave you or forsake you.

Say of your soul, “my salvation is in God…” What I am about to do no one will be able to take credit for. Those who are eyeing you just waiting to see you fall will be ashamed and turned back when they see My blessing and My favor showered upon you in a moment for I am the God that can do anything I want any time I want, and I don’t have to check with anyone before I do. My exhortation to you this day is, don’t panic. The fear of the Lord is clean, but every other fear is unclean. Refuse to allow the enemy to defile your mind with thoughts of fear or worry of any kind. I am on-premises in your life. The angels encamp all around you. The answers you seek are manifesting even now, and you will not be thwarted.

The Father says today, let the heathen rage for I have hidden you in My pavilion. The kings of the earth and rulers of men despise My counsels and plunge headlong into darkness, but that is not your portion. Nations defy My ordinances and turn away from My wisdom, but in the midst of their darkness, I will be light to your path leading you to the place of peace and contentment. Know this, says God, that peace is not the absence of conflict; peace is a fruit of My Spirit working in you and preserving you from the enmity of godless minds. As I have set boundaries for the sea and said, “go no further,” I have set boundaries for the sons of men and declared “this far and no further.” They set their sights on the fleshly treasures of iniquity, but My word in the earth is “that will be enough of that!”

So fret not when you see evildoers reaping the consequences of their actions. Hell was not created for them, yet hell is their portion, nonetheless. Your responsibility is to be salt and light until Shiloh comes and with it My hand of deliverance to move in your personal life and make things different than they are. Remember that He that sits in the heavens will laugh, and I have seated you in heavenly places in Christ. If you aren’t laughing, you are living below your privileges. Know that I have set you in My holy hill of Zion, and there I will defend you and preserve you till all these troubles are over. Despair not at the conceit of the ungodly for in their rebellion they only mark themselves as the heathen that I give you for your inheritance. They will be broken at the wheel and left parched at the cistern of their own making, but to you, I have given the uttermost parts of the earth for your inheritance, and your righteousness will ever originate in Me.

The Father says today, I am infusing your life with My blessing this day. You have chosen to turn away from dark counsels and manipulation. You decided to run in the way of My word and not after the advice of those who have no light in them. Realize this, says the Father, that heaven takes notice when you walk away from ungodly associations. Nothing escapes My eye, even in the night when you lay awake meditating on My word and My law concerning the things that you are facing. Know that you aren’t alone, and you aren’t up against a wall. Feel the refreshing down in the sap of your soul, for I am rooting Myself in you and vining Myself in you. Yes, I am keeping you saturated in My goodness even in the drought and dryness of the season you are walking in.

Your dreams, says the Father, have not cast their young. The assault from hell against your life has not extinguished the prospects of the vision I buried down deep inside you like hidden treasure. From this day forth, the fruit that the enemy thought would die on the vine in your life is now becoming lush and ripe for harvest. The leaves of hope on the boughs of your branches are now supple and healthy, no longer wilting under the blighting curse of disappointment. I say to you put your hand to something, and I will bless it. Step out in faith, and I will cause you to take territory and claim new ground that will prosper in everything you apply yourself to. Don’t be distracted by the godless, even those close to you who mock and scorn who I am in your life. They are as the chaff that My wind even now will blow away, and their howls of spite will no longer be heard in your land, says God.
