This morning while responding to an email, I felt clear instructions to share this recent vision. After some time of pondering on the vision, more has been revealed in its purpose. The Eagle Vision was received during the WV IFA prayer call on December 11, 2023.
As I look back over my notes of the prayer points from that Monday evening’s prayer call, such items as the legislative committee meetings in session, upcoming 2024 elections and the other prayer groups around the state were just a few on my list for the Monday nights call. One note read “As residents of our community, our county, our state, and our nation, we use our authority to cast out the evil that grows and attempting to set up their authority. They have no authority but what is given when we don’t claim what is rightfully ours.”
I began the call as I usually do. I listed the prayer points and had brief discussion on those topics as we are always excited to enter our time of prayer together.
It was early into the call that I felt the Lord instruct me to read Psalms 91 over those on the call. As the call was nearing the top of the hour, I expressed what God had asked me to do and began to read Psalms 91. “He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High, shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feather, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler.” (verses 1 – 4)
It was at this time I entered a vision. I found myself tucked up inside the chest feathers of a mighty eagle. I felt the warmth of this most secure place as the eagle took flight high above the earth. As I continued to read the Psalms that is so often declared for protection, “a thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you,” (verse 7) from my sheltered position, I could see the wings of this mighty eagle stretching, further and further the tips of His wings would stretch and then begin to curl under as if offering additional protection from those who have sought His shelter.
As I continued reading the scriptures, I also declared that God is protecting, not just those on the call, but extending further and further over their entire families. Protection and shelter under His mighty wings.
I know without a doubt that while obediently reading and experiencing this vision, those that I prayed over were receiving special protection from God Almighty. I knew that through the authority that was given to me, when I exercised that authority, it was done! This collaboration between God and His mighty army, we declare what He has written or spoken, within this perfect orchestration is where God’s Word comes to life. We are overcomers by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony. The power exists through His precious blood but is activated by our words, our use of declaring what He says.
In going back to my notes, that as residents of our communities, counties, state, and nation we have authority. We declare authority over these areas in which we take up residence. Lord God, I pray that you would further teach us the value of our words, the value of reading Your Word over our state and nation. I thank you my precious King for this vision. I can still see the tips of Your wings stretching, further and further to encompass more territory declared belonging to You oh Lord of Heaven and earth. We glorify your name.
Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge,
Even the Most High, your dwelling place,
no evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling.
For He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways.
In their hands they shall bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone.
You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra,
the young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.
Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him;
I will set him on high, because he has known my name.
He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him.
With long life I will satisfy him, and show him My salvation.
