Isaiah 40:1-5

Comfort, O comfort, My people, says your God. Speak kindly to Jerusalem, and cry to her that her warfare has ended, that her iniquity has been pardoned, that she has received of the hand of the Lord double for all her sins.

The voice of him who cries out, "Prepare the way of the Lord in the wilderness, make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Let every valley be lifted up, and every mountain and hill be made low, and let the rough ground become a plain, and the rough places a plain; then the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together, for the mouth of the Lord has spoken it."

Defensive Tactics

When we awake to the reality of the spiritual battles going on all around us, we immediately realize there are massive assaults being leveled at our loved ones, communities, churches, and nations. The onslaught and bombardment are continuous and without regard for ignorance, innocence, or infirmity. No matter what the status of every human being, the kingdom of darkness assails to render deathblows, dismemberment, and/or paralysis.

Knowing this, you must realize this is not a time to wait for the next missile launch, the next sabotage attempt, or the next "hit man" to be deployed for you to spring into action. You must lift your voice and come in fury and passion to put to shame all the contrivances of the enemy. You must act offensively. You cannot let the plans Satan has for the children of God come to pass. Not today. Not on your watch. Not ever! Every attack leveled against your loved ones opens up the opportunity to plunder the enemies' possessions and territory instead of the other way around.

God has given you the power to shut down every initiative instituted by anyone and everyone who moves by satanic impulse. This is the inheritance of the Lord, which will propel you in fervent determination to battle in prayer.
