Tim takes command 7-24-13 (1)Lynn takes command 7-24-13 (#2 cropped)

Last Tuesday night I was feeling bluesy. Not just teensy-flea-bitten bluesy, but basset-hound-eyes with thumping-Eeyore’s-tail sort of stuff. The business is in a period of transition. The phone’s not exactly ringing off the hook with new contracts. Conflicts with friends defy resolution. No devotions that day, either. A distinct heaviness on my head shoves my chin to my chest.

I ask the Holy Spirit, “What’s going on?”

He says, “You need to get proactive in this battle.”

“Dude,” I turn to the enemy and say, “come with me.” He’s so foolhardy, he tags along with Tim and me as we go to the office.

Once there,  I tell Tim, “Kick off your shoes.” So he does. Barefoot, we climb atop blue upholstered chairs in the reception area. We’re elevated above the floor. Right away, a surge of energy goes through us. We’re uplifted. We shout*:

“We stand to command our day and declare it a new day. Our season of frustration and failures is over. We walk in a season of success and prosperity. Anything assigned to hinder or hurt us, we command moved out of our sphere of influence, in Jesus’ name.”

Immediately the enemy shoots out the door like a fox on fire.

“A new day is dawning for our ministry, job, and business, for our finances, for our relationships, and for our health.

“We have fresh excitement. We have fresh minds. We have fresh zeal. We have a fresh anointing from You, God—uncontaminated and uncompromised. The anointing on our life repels every individual with a diabolical assignment.

“Teach us Your way so that we may know how to conduct our affairs in the most discerning, expeditious, and fiscally wise manner.

“Open our eyes to cutting-edge technologies, methodologies, tactics, and strategies that can help us do Your will.

“The anointing on our life for this season, mission, mandate, and purpose attracts only those with divinely ordained assignments.”

We stop and listen. Traffic roars by on the busy city street outside our window. But a supernatural shift has taken place. We’ve taken the upper hand and we know it. And what comes next is about to blow the roof off.

3 reasons to stand on a chair and shout:

1.)    It gives you a stance of victory over your situation.

2.)    It stirs up the enthusiasm and strength in your mind & body.

3.)    It reinforces the sense you’re beneath the authority and dominion of our heavenly Father in the name of His Son, Jesus Christ.

Friend, I invite you to stand on a chair and shout these declarations.  Then let me know what happens.

What helps you maintain a sense of authority when you pray? Have you taken an unusual stance? Leave a comment and tell us about it!
