Now is the time to OCCUPY the space you’ve been given – lest it be overtaken by a different authority. I was given a warning dream last night, and it was very clear we need to steward our spiritual authority and what the Lord has given to us; promises, gifts, inheritance, spiritual land, etc. Ultimately, it’s a stewarding of His voice! Our callings and future life are dependent upon it.
This is a season of Love and War!
“And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come.” Luke 19:13 KJV
