The challenge will be to rewrite the line “I will lay me down,” as it may have been serving as an invitation for sadness to creep in. That is not the purpose of the song.
I have found through working with healing angels that they sometimes reconnect us with sad memories to help us cry. Apparently, a hormone that is secreted through the shedding of tears has a cathartic effect that transitions us to a calmer state.
I feel that the song may be particularly helpful to get wounded prophets to re-connect with their pain caused by the sacrifices and mistakes that they have made while trying to be faithful to their calling.
For those of you who have not suffered the wrath of the devil, here are some popular targets: friends, spouse, child, livelihood, confidence, reputation, identity, calling and even your home.
How many have you lost?
The key is not to dwell on the sadness and hopelessness as we really do have the power to cast out all those things. It’s time for prophets to reclaim their power and invest in building a community of fearless prophets who are not afraid to tear down darkness before they can rebuild. Are you game?
if we don’t, we may feel that our lives have been wasted on Jesus. This statement is not meant to undermine the credibility of your famous book. The book is about worship but if we are perpetually in worship mode, who is going to fight? It’s all about finding balance.
God needs us fully alive rather than broken. Unfortunately, His ability in reaching us is often undermined by our wrong belief systems and the sins that we have inherited from our ancestors.
As ministries and churches, we are meant to be the outsource company of God along with the Holy Spirits of the World. Have we forgotten that the Holy Spirits are part of the Godhead?
Let’s make a commitment to Father God to be fully awake to complete our missions on earth. Start by kicking out all spirits of sadness, hopelessness and apathy now, in the Name of Jesus!
