Morning by Morning, June 25 - Go Through the Gates!

Good morning, Lord Jesus. Put Your thoughts in my mind and Your desires in my heart, as I begin this day in the communion of prayer with You -- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit of God.  ...

"Go through, go through the gates! Prepare the way for the people; build up, build up the highway! Take out the stones, lift up a banner for the peoples! Indeed the Lord has proclaimed to the end of the world:  Say to daughter Zion, 'Surely your salvation is coming; behold, His reward is with Him, and His work before Him' " (Isaiah 62:10-11, NKJ).

You've been speaking to me about going through the gates. Your Holy Spirit is preparing the way of the Lord in the hearts and souls of Your people. You're revealing and removing every barrier that would hinder the flow of Your life through our lives. You're raising up the banner of Your name and the banner of Your love and power over us as we advance into the fullness our salvation to proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom of God to the ends of the earth.

As we arise and advance, all by the power of Your grace, "the gates of hell will not prevail against (Your Church)" (Matthew 16:18, KJV). In Your power, we will go through, go through every gate of hell and enter into gates of Your righteousness. "Open to me the gates of righteousness, that I may enter through them and give thanks to the Lord. This is the gate of the Lord; the righteousness shall enter through it. I thank You that You have answered me and become my salvation" (Psalm 118:19-21, NRSV).

In the name of Jesus, by the power of the grace of our God, we will go through the gate of pride and enter the gate of humility, through the gate of fear and enter the gate of love, through the gate of shame and enter the gate of honor, through the gate of rejection and enter the gate of acceptance, through the gate of lust and enter the gate of intimacy, through the gate of judgment and enter the gate of mercy, through the gate of death and enter the gate of life.

We are honored and excited to be chosen by You to live in these days the prophets and fore-fathers of our faith longed to see. In our generation, let Your Church arise, let Your Kingdom advance. There's an army of the Lord of hosts rising up. Let Your glory fill our hearts and fill the earth "as the waters cover the sea" (Habakkuk 2:14). "Christ in (us), the hope of glory" (Colossians 1:27). Let us open up our hearts and let us go through Your gates. "Lift up your heads, O gates! and be lifted up, O ancient doors! That the King of glory many come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, He is the King of glory" (Psalm 24:9-10). In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

Be encouraged today! In the Love of Jesus, Tommy Hays

My Friend,  I pray you will arise and advance and break through the gates hell into the gates of God's righteousness in every area of your life. Please pray the same for me. God bless you, my friend!

Friends, the Lord woke me up early Sunday morning with this message to Go through the Gates to speak at the Life Changer Church of Claremore, Oklahoma after our Above the Storm Conference this weekend, encouraging the intercessors and watchmen on the wall of the region, hosted at the CMore House of Prayer. We had an exciting time in the powerful Presence of the Lord! Thank you for your prayers for us. I pray for breakthrough in your prayer life and in the Church of Jesus Christ in your region. Thank you for joining with me in this journey of prayer.
