For You light my lamp; the LORD my God illumines my darkness. For by You I can run upon a troop; and by my God I can leap over a wall. Psalm 18:28-29.
I will praise you, LORD, among the nations; I will sing of You among the peoples. For great is Your love, higher than the heavens; Your faithfulness reaches to the skies. Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; let Your glory be over all the earth. Psalm 108:3-5.
Your love, LORD, reaches to the heavens, Your faithfulness to the skies. Psalm 36:5.
When the trumpets sounded, the army shouted, and at the sound of the trumpet, when the men gave a loud shout, the wall collapsed; so everyone charged straight in, and they took the city. Joshua 6:20.
By faith the walls of Jericho fell, after the army had marched around them for seven days. Hebrews 11:30.
The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love. Galatians 5:6.
Today the LORD God says:
In your life right now there may be problems, physical challenges, economic challenges, or things that are happening that make you feel like you keep running into a wall as you try to get the victory. But the wall just seems to get higher and stronger and longer everyday.
The Good News is that there is a Way to leap over the wall in your life that is blocking your way to your goal—a way to watch that wall fall and then step right over it. It will work for you, for nations, and for anyone who will do it. Blessed is the doer of My Word.
David knew the way. He came up against many walls in his life that seemed to stop him from his destiny. But I revealed the way to him and he wrote it down in a song to Me. He wrote: “by my God I can leap over a wall.” Psalm 18:29 (30).
It is still true. And you can have it in your life.
Notice My Word tells you that by Me you can leap over a wall. I am love. Love towers above the heavens and reaches higher than the skies. That sounds like it would take you over a wall.
If you substitute the word “love” for God in David’s revelation of My Word you have “by my love I can leap over a wall.”
If you are up against a wall in your life, do not pound your fists against the wall and go into despair, anger, fear, and anxiety. The wall will only get higher as you magnify it and dig yourself into a pit.
Instead, take the wings of love and soar over it. Those who wait on Me will soar as with eagles’ wings. And how do you wait on Me? By imitating Me as My dear children and walking in love. My love poured into your heart by the Holy Spirit that I have given you in Jesus, causing rivers of life giving water to pour out of you to the world. My glory flooding the earth as the waters cover the sea.
This is what I mean. Begin now to give love as much as you can in every moment of your life with countless thoughts, words, and actions of love and you will leap over the wall. Determine to give nothing but love in everything, not just in matters pertaining to the problem.
And let Me bear you up on eagles’ wings—the wings of love.
But I have even better news for you. You will not have to leap too high for if you give enough love and faithfulness the wall will fall before you and you can just jump over it to the other side. Like Jericho.
My Word tells you that by faith the walls of Jericho fell, after the army had marched around them for seven days. Hebrews 11:30. My Word tells you that faith overcomes any wall, but My Word also tells you that faith works by love. Galatians 5:6. Faith is expressed through love. So to cause a wall to fall (I will knock it down for you) you need to put your faith to work by thoughts, words, and actions of pure love at every moment. And then when you give the shout of praise, the wall will fall. And only those who are filled with pure love can shout praise and thanksgiving in the face of a wall!
So do not just keep pounding up against a wall. Do not just try to tear it down. Make the wall fall by love and then leap over it by love.
That is the only way. You conquer evil with good.
Love never fails.
But you must permit nothing else in your mind, heart, mouth, and actions. Your motive must be only love, pure love—loving thoughts, loving words, and loving actions at every moment. Blame, judging, offense, complaining, fussing, anxiety, or jealousy must not be permitted in your mind or emotions. You must be cleansed of all evil in you by the Blood of Christ.
Love is going to move your wall. Unleash the power of love in your life. I tell you to knock and it shall be opened to you. Knock at the floodgates of Heaven and they will open to you. And out will pour a flood of My love.
You do not need to be frantically chasing people or money to get what you need to get over your wall. Never try to shame a person into filling your needs. Enlarge your heart to understand the height of My love. Let it fill you. Then act out of love for others without placing demands on them to see to your interests. When you act in love others will begin to meet your needs because they want you around.
My gentleness has made you great. I enlarge your steps. As you love I enlarge your heart. Your hope and your vision will expand and I will bring the divine connections into your life that will make your dream blossom until you become great. The wall will fall before you when you have learned how much I love you and have allowed My love to overflow in your heart. A hardened, narrow heart will not hear My voice or be able to see divine connections.
Start with your mind and stop yielding to wrong thoughts and speaking wrong words. I give you instructions on this in My Word so that you can put it into application in your life and get over that wall that is blocking your progress.
Let us look at the instructions now. First, I tell you that no unwholesome word should proceed from your mouth—do not permit anything into your thoughts or mouth that will hurt someone, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear. This is love. Get yourself off your mind and think of the other. Enlarge your heart with thoughts and words of love—that is, thoughts of kindness, truth and excellence. Do not grieve the Holy Spirit, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. My Spirit wants to fill you with My fullness and He cannot do so if you are so hard hearted He cannot enter.
Do not be so sensitive and take offense at everything that seems uncomplimentary to you. Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. These can severely limit you and cause you to stay behind a wall all your life. And it is not the other’s fault even if they did wrongly hurt you, the narrowness is in you. Instead, be kind to one another, tender-hearted (compassionate, gentle, being aware of others’ sufferings and responding with faith), and forgiving each other, just as I have forgiven you in Christ. Ephesians 4:29-31.
Value people and give them the most valuable of gifts: love. Measure and design your thoughts and words on purpose to build others up even if you need to exhort them. Do not just speak to express how you feel at the moment. And what you give you will receive. And all good things return from love.
Love knocks down walls and opens doors. By acts of pure love you can leap right over a wall.
Follow after love and desire spiritual gifts. And My Spirit will give you a word of wisdom, a word of knowledge, gifts of healing, and the gift of prophecy to impact others’ lives and open up your own. But you have to be big enough inside to receive it. And if you are all upset about yourself inside you are narrow and not open wide enough to receive the fullness of My Word. My love flowing in you and through you to others will expand you so that you can embrace the entire length, height, and breadth of My love and receive all My fullness. Ephesians 3:16-21.
So by loving in all your thoughts, words, and actions be strengthened with power through My Spirit in your inner self so that Christ may dwell in your heart through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all My fullness.
All the problems in the world can be solved by love. But that is the only way. If people will not walk in love then evil things will continue to happen. If everyone walked in love down to the very core of their being there would be no prejudice, hate crimes, greed, or abuse. Evil is merely the result of acting without love. And I am love. So it is a result of acting without Me. There is the greed which is idolatry and it leads to devastation and death of nations and people. It puts up walls that it then cannot break through. It imprisons itself.
I love you. And know that I am able to do far more abundantly beyond all that you ask or think, according to the power that works within you by love. And it starts with your thoughts.
