“Therefore put on God’s complete armor, that you may be able to resist and stand your ground on the evil day [of danger], and, having done all [the crisis demands], to stand [firmly in your place]. Stand therefore [hold your ground]….” Ephesians 6:13-14a (AMPC)
By now, you’ve likely heard about the tragic school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, earlier this week. In the video below, Kenneth Copeland shares a special message of encouragement from God’s Word for families, teachers, students, first responders and all who have been impacted.
As the Church of Jesus Christ, we have both a RESPONSE and a RESPONSIBILITY to take our stand for our children. Our first response is one of compassion and love. We are earnestly praying for the families affected by this act. But we must do more than that.
As faith-filled, blood-bought believers with a covenant with God Almighty, we have to resist the enemy and take our stand. We have to say, “No more!” We have to change the atmosphere of strife, criticism, fear and confusion created by this event with our faith.
How do we do that? By taking our authority that’s found in the Name and the blood of Jesus and the Word of God.
Watch as Pastor Terri Copeland Pearsons, KCM chief visionary officer, shares more about our response as Christians and how to take your stand for our children.
We, as the Church, have a responsibility to take our authority over the devil, resist him and stand on our covenant for our children. Are you ready to take your stand?
Here are four things you can do right now to take your stand for our children:
1. Refuse To Fear and Stand on Psalm 91 Promises of Protection
You don’t have to live in fear! We want to sow two FREE resources that will help you “fear not”—no matter what’s happening around you. Click HERE to download No Fear Here by Pastor George Pearsons and Your Promise of Protection: The Power of the 91st Psalm by Gloria Copeland. Please remember to share the link to these minibooks with your family and friends who need to hear this message of faith over fear!
2. Use Your Authority for Physical Protection
There’s power in the blood of Jesus and in the Name of Jesus! Taking your authority for protection should be done daily. It doesn’t take long—speak a word of protection as you drive, speak Psalm 91 over your family as you head to work or run errands, plead the blood of Jesus over your children first thing in the morning when you wake. As you make it part of your daily routine, it will become second nature to you.
You can take your authority every day by saying something like:
You listen to me, kingdom of darkness: It is written that I am seated at the Father’s right hand far above you (Ephesians 1:18-23), and that I overcome you by the blood of the Lamb and the word of my testimony (Revelation 12:11). So here is the word of my testimony, and here is who you can’t go near today. I draw the blood around (name your family members), and I plead the blood over myself, too. You stay away from us! Satan, you stay away from the good works I should walk in. You stay away from my children’s school, my ministry, my church, my neighborhood, my home, and every vehicle and building we go into. I draw a bloodline around them. I plead the blood of Jesus and the Name of Jesus over my family!
3. Invoke THE BLESSING on Your Children
In the video above, watch Pastors George and Terri Pearsons at Eagle Mountain International Church from Sunday, May 29, 2022, as we invoked THE BLESSING on our children. Participate with your family by following along, laying hands on your children, and praying over them as the pastors lead.
4. Constantly Feed Your Faith
At KCM, we believe, especially in today’s world, you need to know how to stay in faith and apply the Word of God to your life every day. It’s one thing to know what to do, but it’s another thing to know how and when to do it. We invite you to dig deep into the treasures of God’s Word with us, so you can put on the full armor of God, resist the devil, and after having done all…STAND.
