DAY 16: God is taking Australia back as His own!

by Cheryl Lindley, Australian Apostolic Restore Community

I believe God’s desire is that our nation, Australia, which has already been covenanted to Him, will renew that covenant and rise into the fullness of the destiny that He has planned! In fact, I believe the Lord has said, this nation is His and He has come to claim it back!

“But if from there you seek the Lord your God, you will find him if you seek him with all your heart and with all your soul.” (Deuteronomy 4:29)

“Fear not; you will no longer live in shame.
Don’t be afraid; there is no more disgrace for you.
You will no longer remember the shame of your youth and the sorrows of widowhood.
For your Creator will be your husband;
the Lord of Heaven’s Armies is his name!
He is your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel, the God of all the earth.” (Isaiah 54:4-5)

I believe God has stood up among us to make the knowledge of His love known to our nation. God loves our nation even more than we do. He is calling her back to himself like a husband. I believe
He has stood to take responsibility for our land and ensure that as a nation we truly become the Great Southland of the Holy Spirit.

Like Hosea, He has taken a bride that has shunned Him, but He is calling us back with His chords of love.

However, I also see Jesus is ‘roaring’ over this nation as the ‘Lion of the Tribe of Judah’ and He is taking hold of those who are His. He is also removing those who are standing in the way of this nation moving into the call and destiny over her.

His ‘roar’ is shaking and awakening us to His presence among us!

He is awakening this nation to life!! God is awakening us to live and choose life for ourselves and for the oppressed around us.

God himself is shaking this nation to awake to the knowledge of his goodness and see clearly that it is He who gives us Life!!

I have felt the Holy Spirit say:

‘I have come, Australia I AM here among you, I AM is in your midst. I AM awakening you to know me and to find me in the midst of your turmoil and heartaches.

Your troubles and disappointments abound for you have wandered from the path I had laid out for you and you have taken a rough and rugged road that is leading you to destruction.

Turn, turn, turn and set your face like flint to search me out and find me.’

This is His plan and desire!!

Turn, turn, turn, Australia! Renew your covenant to Jesus and He will forgive our sins and heal our land.

My husband saw that as we turned our hearts to Him and stood together and agreed together against the flood tide of evil currently before our parliaments, that the Lord would raise up a wall and turn the tide of evil against our unborn and the flood waters would recede!!

Jesus is rising over Australia with healing in his wings for He has heard the cries of his people and he has heard the cries of the broken, oppressed, abused, and lost.

God himself has stood up to answer!!!

Father, thank you for loving us and thank you for remembering your covenant with this nation as the great South land of the Holy Spirit!
We repent of turning away from you to choose paths of destruction and death.
We repent of the shedding of innocent blood all across this nation and we stand against the powers that are now planning to legalise it!
We declare that this day we turn back to you and renew our covenant of life.
We declare, we choose life!!
We thank you that as the enemy comes in like a flood you are raising up a standard and turning the tide of bloodshed of the innocent!
Let our nation now choose life and let the generations enjoy a culture of life!!

Watch Break Every Chain
