Days of Holiness ~ Day 18: God’s Holy Zeal

“Many are the plans in the mind of a man,
but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.”
~ Proverbs 19:21

Today we continue to contend for truth, life, and justice for the unborn — we stand firm and believe! The only faith that will pass the strength test is that which stands on the person of Christ, and the power of His extremely strong and capable right arm to save.

Don’t let bad reports, disappointing news, or men’s failures deter us from true faith in Him. We keep our eyes fixed on the Rock of our salvation, the Cornerstone of our faith, and the only One who can truly deliver His people from the designs of the wicked.

Isaiah 59:17-19 says:

“He put on righteousness as a breastplate,
and a helmet of salvation on His head;
He put on garments of vengeance for clothing
and wrapped Himself in zeal as a cloak.
According to their deeds, so will He repay,
wrath to His adversaries,
repayment to His enemies;
to the coastlands He will render repayment.
So, they shall fear the name of the Lord from the west,
and His glory from the rising of the sun;
for He will come like a rushing stream,
which the WIND OF THE LORD drives.”

One of the frightening aspects of Holiness is His Holy zeal — He is slow to anger, but there is a fullness of time, when the Lord moves and cleanses the nations of the vileness of evil, especially where there is shedding of innocent blood, as it empowers the deep darkness.

We have a holy indignation, yet remain in the Lord, the Commander of Angel Armies, and agree this cleansing must happen as we see the reward of the wicked. We stay hidden under His protection according to Psalm 91 — it is wisdom to pray this Psalm often in these days.

Let us Pray:
Heavenly Father, thank You for the gift of Your Son; thank You for the gift of the Holy Spirit.
Lord, we look to You and Your delivering power to move now on behalf of the unborn.
Thank You for Your zeal to protect and rescue them from destruction!

Lord, raise up a Holy outcry from Your people, that continues loudly until we see the defeat of legalised abortion for any reason in Australia. Lord, in South Australia, as in other states, the silent cry of the unborn has come to Your Throne. We ask for justice and recompense for the atrocities of abortion to birth, sex-selection abortions, leaving babies to die after failed abortions, and all destruction to lives in the womb.

Lord, we have been witness to many who have positions of power that have ignored any form of mercy! Lord, those who have hardened their hearts are plentiful — they have stopped their ears to truth. We are shocked at the horrendous treatment of our future generations Australia-wide.

Such treatment appears to be condoned by SA Parliamentarians as they push for the Termination of Pregnancy Bill 2020 to be passed, even in their first week of sitting from February 3rd. Are they keen to ‘get this out of the way’ so it doesn’t mess up their election year? Are they afraid of the great number that will Walk for Life on Feb 6th through the streets of Adelaide?

We ask for Your holy intervention to clean the house of our Parliaments to restore justice for all Australians, even those in the womb. Come, Lord Jesus, like a rushing stream and cleanse our land — let the wind of Your Spirit drive it quickly for the sake of the unborn and our future generations.
In your Holy Name Yeshua, Lord Jesus, we pray. Amen.

Abundant grace to you as we continue in prayer and fasting according to Mark 9:29 ~

He answered them, “This type of powerful spirit can only be cast out by fasting and prayer.”

Points for Prayer ~ pray for:

  • South Australia’s Lower House politicians, that they be infused with truth and light for the sanctity of life – even of the unborn. Pray for a majority to vote no to this bill and take courage to defeat the Termination of Pregnancy Bill 2020 the week of Feb 3rd 2021.
  • Those on the frontline preparing for the Walk for Life, February 6th 2021 in Adelaide, South Australia, for volunteers and marshalls, for no COVID before, during or after it.
  • For our future generations to be rescued from the horror of death through abortion!
    Let the spirit of adoption enter the hearts of those considering abortion,
    to carry to full term and save their child’s life.
  • For greater numbers of believers in Jesus all over Australia and the South Pacific region to awaken to the battle and stand for life — to rise up in wisdom and courage to take action needed and speak for the voiceless.
  • For the church to become a haven of hope and help for those with unplanned pregnancies.

To send the intended influential message to our politicians
that South Australians DO NOT want legalised abortion up to birth,
we need thousands of people on the WALK for LIFE!

It will take each of us to SPREAD THE WORD through all our networks!
