Courts Of The Lord

Word of the Day

Beloved, courts can be a place where justice is metered out and is held in the presence of a judge or king. I am both Judge and King. I have established ways in which to enter into My courts which I have given you access to through My blood. I have been seated far above all rule, authority, power, dominion and every name, not only in this age and world but also in the age and world to come (Ephesians 1:21). I hold court over all the earth. Nothing escapes Me. Nothing goes unnoticed. This power and dominion belonging to Me, I have given to you through the Cross. I have seated you with Me in heavenly places to rule and reign in the earth—to have dominion—to be fruitful and multiply (Genesis 1:28).

It is My desire for you to come into My courts as Elijah did and legislate according to My wishes for your family, your nation and ultimately for the nations of the world who so desperately need Me. Elijah walked in a place of authority and power because of intimacy with Me. He gave Me the highest form of thanksgiving and praise. He gave himself to a life of adoration and worship. In other words, he entered My courts with thanksgiving and praise. In this manner He stood before Me and was able to pronounce My will (1Kings 17:1).

What you do in the natural must first be done in the Spirit as it was with Elijah. Standing in My counsel always comes first and you cannot enter there with murmuring and complaining. Ponder on how Miriam and Aaron found themselves outside the camp.

It is My desire for you to see and know what I am doing in your life and on your behalf. Many things take time to work out and patience is of the utmost importance. There is always a fullness of time. If the enemy cannot get you to blame others and be offended, he will endeavor to blame you. Either way a thankful heart is ambushed by fear, murmuring and complaining which lead to doing things in your own strength.

This is where your thankful heart comes in. The more you thank Me and sing praises, the more you trust Me. The more you trust Me, the more intimate you are. The more intimate you are the more you hear Me. The more you hear Me the more you walk according to My counsel. The more you walk according to My counsel the more My will is legislated in your life. The more My will is legislated in your life the more peace will rule and reign in your heart. Time has come for you to approach My courts with thanksgiving and praise. Remember, there is no other way, for it is the way of love…

Ascribe to the Lord, O you families of the peoples, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength. Give to the Lord the glory due His name; bring an offering and come [before Him] into His courts. O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness; tremble before and reverently fear Him, all the earth.(Psalms 96:7-9 Amplified)For in Him does our heart rejoice, because we have trusted (relied on and been confident) in His holy name. Let Your mercy and loving-kindness, O Lord, be upon us, in proportion to our waiting and hoping for You.(Psalms 33:21-22 Amplified)


Lord, I enter into Your courts with praise and thanksgiving. There is no other way for me to come. You have established the way to enter through the confirming of Your Word. I come with affectionate praise and adoration. You are worthy to be praised for simply being. You are worthy just because You are. I stand in Your presence with arms up in complete surrender and my mouth full of vocal praise.

You have told me to be fruitful and multiply; therefore I must choose to multiply what is pure, lovely and upright. Like Elijah, I stand before You to hear Your Word for my family, my nation and the nations of the world. I have the thoughts and intents of Your heart and I am coming to the realization of them as I stand in a posture of thankful praise.

Let me see the desires of Your heart for my family, for those I love most dear that I may legislate on their behalf. I hear Your Words of life for them and declare them to bring about Your desired action and plan for them. I embrace the fullness of walking in Your presence from thanksgiving to legislating on the behalf of others. I consider it a privilege worthy of dying to self for. I have come and now stand before You in humble praise. There is no other way. Amen

Reflect and Journal

    1. Do you have a tendency to be more like Miriam and Aaron than Elijah or David? In what ways have you done this?
    2. What needs to be done in your own personal time with the Lord to develop a relationship with Him as intimate as Elijah’s, one that can tell it not to rain and it doesn’t?
    3. Reflect on thanksgiving and praise being forerunners to legislating on behalf of those you love to see Father’s plan for their life coming into fruition.
    4. Position yourself with a more attitude when it comes to thanksgiving. Reflect on what the following love letter means to you in specific ways. Write them down so you will remember.

    1. Lord, you are King and Judge. Let our plea for justice that is due us be rewarded. We pray for people withholding what is due us to have a changed heart. By your grace alone all things are possible. You alone have way where there is no way! And for sure your promises will never return void.

      While we are at the brink of despair and hopelessness, Your power will manifest for in our weakness Your power is perfect. May we find in our hearts the good lessons of life to be learned. Thank you for Your miracle and the works of Your hands, My Big God of the Impossible!!!
