The Righteous Heard in Heaven
In his revelation Bob heard the phrase, “The righteous shall cry out to God and He will hear and answer them.” In God’s scheme of things there is a principle of sowing and reaping. For a season we have been sowing tears and we are going to reap joy; we have been sowing prayers and we are going to reap answered prayer. Psalm 34:17 declares:
The righteous cry, and the LORD hears and delivers them out of all their troubles.
A higher level of righteousness is being imputed to a Body of people who will hear from God and provide clarity and insight. When we cry out to God from a position of righteousness in this season, He will answer us with discernment and provision communicated through Psalm 25 and 26, the Psalms of the righteous.
These Psalms carry our provision for the coming season. Authority, power and anointing, essential for this next interval of the Spirit, can be found and emphasized in the truths of these Psalms. They will become a blueprint for the next season and opened for the righteous.
In Psalm 25, King David submits himself in totality to God. As a result, it is his anticipation that God will now deal with his enemies and not allow him to be overrun by them. That is a present promise for this time. God’s quest has been for us to submit ourselves completely to Him. When this is achieved, our spiritual tormentors will be dealt with by the Holy Spirit. He will release from Heaven strong angels to neutralize the principalities and powers that have been withstanding the destiny of God’s people.
This will also open up greater insight into God’s ways. His ways are much higher and we must ascend to a greater height to appropriate them. David penned:
Make me know Your ways, O LORD; teach me Your paths. Lead me in Your truth and teach me, for You are the God of my salvation; for You I wait all the day. Remember, O LORD, Your compassion and Your lovingkindnesss, for they have been from of old. Do not remember the sins of my youth or my transgressions; according to Your lovingkindness remember me, for Your goodness’ sake, O LORD. —Psalm 25:4-7
This promise also emphasizes our present opportunity to bring certain things to completion and experience commissioning for new beginnings. For many years the Church has been attempting to accomplish its mandate through the ways of men. Now we are being given the opportunity to comprehend God’s ways which are always fruitful. There will be a continued emphasis in the area of teaching and mentoring in the coming days. This is part of our calling to arise into maturity and the fullness of the stature of Christ.
In Psalm 25, David also asks for God’s intervention in his life to promote righteousness. We are incapable of achieving that within ourselves. We need God!
Psalm 26 outlines David’s noble prayer and commitment to harbor no falsehood or deception. He prays for purity of heart and motive in order to be God’s instrument during his generation. That is precisely the emphasis for today. To be used most fruitfully during this outpouring, we must ask for and insist upon the purity of God’s Spirit resting within and delivering us from our own selfish ambition and agendas.
