“Daughters of God: The Birthing of Your Family Promises Is at Hand”
Katie Barker, Tweed Coast, Australia
4th August 2021
The Lord is encouraging His daughters – those who have been contending for the breakthrough of promises in their natural and Kingdom families – to continue to stand as the birth of the promise is near. He is calling His daughters to arise in this hour and combat the schemes of the enemy specifically sent to target the family.
Degradation of Families
I heard the Lord say, “The enemy knows the power and importance of family – both natural and spiritual families. The assault on families has been intense and highly targeted. The enemy knows if he can degrade the family, he can dismantle the building blocks from which I desire to unfold My plans and purposes. The enemy is attempting to derail the destiny of individuals, ministries and regions through the degradation of natural and Kingdom families.
Daughters of the King Answering the Call
“In this hour a whole company of My daughters is arising, answering the call to stand and defend the family. They are rising in righteous anger against the enemy for all he has stolen. They are carriers of My justice and My roar is released through them, as they surrender to Me.
“They are arising with increased boldness as they know that greater is He who is in them than he who is in the world. They know the spiritual authority they carry. They know the battle is Mine. They have been trained for battle through the fire of trials, and their faith in Me and trust in My Word are unwavering. They know the weapons they carry, but most importantly, they know the One leading them into battle, for I call them intimate friends. The Lion of the tribe of Judah goes before them.”
“Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.” (1 John 4:4 ESV)
“…’Do not be afraid and do not be dismayed at this great horde, for the battle is not yours but God’s.'” (2 Chronicles 20:15 ESV)
Rising and Ready for Battle
The Lord says, “My daughters are arising, ready for battle and ready to take back territory from the enemy. They have discernment to see the spiritual battle and they know a shift is occurring as they continue to stand and push forward. They are standing alongside each other and there is power in their united stand.
“In the midst of the battle I am releasing increased authority to My daughters who have been through intense, fiery trials and spiritual battles and have continued to stand. They are unwavering in their stand as they know I am faithful to fulfill all I have spoken, and they know I will finish the work I have started.
“Their decrees carry great authority to unlock and shift things around them, as they only speak on the leading of My Spirit. The enemy has tried to silence their voice but now is the time for them to release their decrees and the words I give them with boldness.“
“Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful.” (Hebrews 10:23 ESV)
“I pray with great faith for you, because I’m fully convinced that the One who began this gracious work in you will faithfully continue the process of maturing you and until the unveiling of our Lord Jesus Christ!” (Philippians 1:6 TPT)
“The mature children of God are those who are moved by the impulses of the Holy Spirit.” (Romans 8:14 TPT)
A Wave of Healing and Freedom
The Lord says, “As the battle breaks over natural and spiritual families and the shift comes, a wave of healing, liberty and advancement will flow. This healing will not only be seen in the areas My daughters have contended for, but will also be seen in their own lives. Where the stand has taken a toll on them, they will find healing coming to every wounded and weary area. The wave of healing and freedom will bring a deep refreshing and rejuvenation, bringing with it a change in season. I am changing their landscape, for what they see before them now will no longer be seen as I open up a new season for them.
Your Intercession Is Birthing the New
“Your intercession is birthing the new. The enemy has tried to bring discouragement and weariness in an attempt to see you step back, but now is the time to rise up like never before, knowing the importance and power of your intercession. Many will receive a new intercessory prayer language in this hour as My Spirit intercedes on their behalf. I will release My roar through you and will give you words and Scriptures to speak out. Your intercession will birth the new path I am opening and will see realignment, restoration and advancement come.“
“Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words. And He who searches hearts knows what is in the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.” (Romans 8:26-27 ESV)
A Time of Deeper Surrender, Justice and Repayment
The Lord says, “I am calling My daughters to continue to guard their hearts and to walk in humility and purity of heart, for I give grace to the humble. I am calling them to even deeper surrender and consecration, for this is a key component of partnership with Me. Now is the time to boldly call forth justice and the repayment of everything that has been stolen. Where it looks like promises I have spoken have been aborted, I am coming to breathe new life on all that has looked lost. Repayment is coming in unexpected ways but will be the work of My hand.”
“Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life.” (Proverbs 4:23 ESV)
“…’God resists you when you are proud but continually pours out grace when you are humble.'” (James 4:6 TPT)
A Time of Testimonies of the Goodness of God and Divine Intervention
The Father says, “My daughters know Me as a good and faithful Father, and in the months to come they will have added testimonies of how I miraculously intervened in their natural and Kingdom families and worked all things for their good. These families have been strengthened in the fire and will come out carrying My fire in greater ways. They have been refined in the fire and will come out walking in greater purity of heart and love for one another.”
“For when you demonstrate the same love I have for you by loving one another, everyone will know that you’re My true followers.” (John 13:35 TPT)
“But He knows the way that I take; when He has tried me, I shall come out as gold.” (Job 23:10 ESV)
Focus on the Family: Delivery of the Promise Is at Hand
The Father says, “Now is the hour to focus on the family, both natural and Kingdom families, for I have much to unfold through families. Fortify the family. Speak life into the family. Daughters, watch plans you thought had been aborted be resurrected and brought to life. You have carried dreams and promises for so long and have faithfully stood for your families. Now is the time for delivery and birthing of those promises. Continue to stand and push through on My leading to see the promise fulfilled.
“I see your weariness and even now I am releasing strength to you for this last stand as you come to Me, surrender all to Me and lean on Me, for My strength is made perfect in your weakness. Rejoice in advance for the birth of the promise that is at hand!“
“But those who wait for Yahweh’s grace will experience divine strength. They will rise up on soaring wings and fly like eagles, run their race without growing weary, and walk through life without giving up.” (Isaiah 40:31 TPT)
“But He answered me, ‘My grace is always more than enough for you, and My power finds its full expression through your weakness.’ So I will celebrate my weaknesses, for when I’m weak I sense more deeply the mighty power of Christ living in me.” (2 Corinthians 12:9 TPT)
In the coming months much change will be seen as the Lord intervenes on your behalf, as you continue to stand for your natural and Kingdom families. Be expectant for the Lord to resurrect what looked lost, bring to pass promises you have contended for, and release recompense and repayment for all that the enemy has robbed from your families.
