Leap into Favor—Part 2

LEAP into the Courage, Power, and Strength of the Lord!

This is the year God is bridging the gap between His destiny for you and your faith, ability, and courage to get there. You are going to LEAP with the empowering strength of God’s blessing given to the Tribe of Dan: “Dan is a lion’s cub leaping out of Bashan” (Deut. 33:22 TM).

The first mention of Dan in Scripture is during the life of Abraham. When his nephew, Lot, was taken captive by the joint forces of four kings, Abram gathered 300 men of his house and pursued them. Abram rescued his nephew and all those who had been taken captive with him (see Gen. 14:14). It was a supernatural victory against superior forces in strength and numbers. Abram rose up in the power and strength of the Lord to deliver and recover everything and everyone the enemy had stolen at a place called, “Dan.”

Dan means to judge, contend, or rule. The tribe’s prophetic destiny and yours as an inheritor of God’s blessing is to contend with the oppressor, bringing justice where there is injustice, rescuing the captive, delivering the bound and restoring the plundered. His blessing extends to cover your household and children.

Interestingly, the second half of Dan’s blessing mentions Bashan, a region distinctive not only for its fierce lions, but also for its giants. Deuteronomy 3:11 says, “For only Og king of Bashan remained of the remnant of the giants. Indeed his bedstead was an iron bedstead…Nine cubits is its length and four cubits its width, according to the standard cubit.”

Giants speak of intimidation and adversity. They are those things that loom larger than they really are through fear. Og was the final king that Israel faced before arriving at the shore of their promised destiny. This is typical of every hero’s journey. At the last stage of transformation from ordinary to extraordinary, and promise to possession, every hero must face his giant.

God’s strategic word for this final hero was this: “’Do not fear him, for I have delivered him into your hand, with all his people and his land; and you shall do to him as you did to Sihon king of the Amorites, who dwelt at Heshbon.’ So they defeated him, his sons, and all his people, until there was no survivor left him; and they took possession of his land.”

You are on a journey to possess God’s promises. The blessing of Dan is upon you. His favor, courage, faith, and power are flowing through you now to face your giant. Your past, your fears, your shortfalls, and your enemies will try to challenge you in your destiny, but the Lion of the Tribe of Judah is anointing you for victory. His word for you is no fear!

This is the Year of Favor. God’s blessing and empowerment from the thick presence of the Glory is with you. You are representative of something way beyond yourself. You are a carrier of God’s promise and His provision to get there. When favor comes the least can slay the greatest. Don't be afraid of your giants. Slay them.

If you have been intimidated in the past, or been powerless to step into the next place you know the Lord has called you to possess, take courage. This is the year of God’s favor. His blessing carries the supernatural empowering of heaven and the anointing of the Lion of the Tribe of Judah to prevail. This is your time to LEAP forward and take possession of your inheritance, bringing God’s justice, deliverance, and blessing wherever you go.

I have been called to serve the Charismatic Renewal in a deeper way and these words are confirmation of that call. I praise the Lord for all the gifts He has given me and I offer myself for the building up of the kingdom NOW because I truly believe in the power of the Holy Spirit to draw "all people unto Him." AMEN
