Declare a Cease-fire – A Word by Lori Suiter


The Lord is funny sometimes in how He speaks to me. Yesterday He gave me the image of someone poking a stick at a dog to get it to react symbolizing the enemy provoking the prophets. Now today I began to sense that there is a distraction tactic going on. I began to see that many of God’s people feel like they are getting hit from every side and that you almost don’t have time to react from one hit before the next one comes. This is an enemy tactic meant to keep us off balance and in reacting instead of us being proactive and intentional. It’s an attempt to keep us fighting DEFENSIVELY instead of OFFENSIVELY! It keeps us looking in the direction the hit came from and nursing the wounds instead of keeping our eyes on Jesus. We need to learn to be offensive with our peace.

So then this conversation played out…

God: Declare a cease-fire into the enemy camp!

(Cease-fire – 1. a cessationg of fighting, a truce. NOT THIS ONE 2. A military order issued to cease fire. THIS ONE! We are NOT talking truce here as we cannot compromise with the enemy in any way.)

Me: That only works for our side of the war. It usually doesn’t work to control the opposition, does it?

God: Have I or have I not given you authority over the opposition?

(Luke 10:19 – Look, I have given you authority over all the power of the enemy, and you can walk among snakes and scorpions and crush them. Nothing will injure you.)

Me: Yes, yes you have!

God: Are you under My wings? and do you love Me?

(Psalm 91) – Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”

(later in verse 9) – If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,”
and you make the Most High your dwelling,
10 no harm will overtake you,
no disaster will come near your tent.

(verse 14) – “Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him
and show him my salvation.”

Me: Yes!!

God: Have I left you unprotected and without weapons?

(Ephesians 6 – Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes……….14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.)

Me: No!

God: Have I blessed you with everything you need in life?

(Ephesians 1:3 – 3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.)

Me: Yes!!!


We must be full of His love and truly understand our authority or we will end up entertaining the demonic without realizing we are doing it. Many have opened the door to enemy harrasment by not calling things what they are. Many are entertaining the toxicity of insecurity, worry, fear, and control in relationships by mistaking them for love. When we fail to address the lie, it remains and it grows. When we cater to insecurity in the name of “love” and fail to confront it, we actually invite it into our own lives by giving validity to the lie. True love is free, unifying, edifying and courageous!!! There is no worry, control, or fear in love! He wants us truly free! Confront and break free!!!!

There are some situations that look so bleak and have for years that it has robbed us of hope of it being turned around. Everyday you are forced to look at the devastation around you and it breaks your heart. I sense the Lord is wanting to use your prayers and your words to take back that ground from the enemy, to rescue that POW (prisoner of war) loved one who is being tormented. Rise up and realize that your words are POWERFUL and it’s time to shout ENOUGH!!!!!

Pray with me out loud…..

Father God we are standing in the place of authority that You have given us through Jesus and we look into the darkness command a CEASE-FIRE into the enemy camp in the mighty name of Jesus! We say ENOUGH of your torment! We will not be distracted by your antics anymore and we declare that us and our families are OFF LIMITS to you and covered by the blood of Jesus!!! Father God we declare Your PEACE into our storms and You have promised us that no weapon formed against us shall prosper and we thank You for Your holy protection! Holy Spirit baptize us with Your fire so everywhere we go darkness flees!!! Thank You for Your holy battleplan being revealed…we love You Jesus!!! Fill us with Your love and may it illuminate all areas of our life so we can see clearly!! Fill us with Your courage to confront the things that are not of You! Thank You for Your peace reigning in our lives. In Your name we pray. Amen.

Some of you battle weary ones need to declare a cease-fire today and be restored to PEACE!!!

Hello Spirit Fuel Readers. I wanted tell you a story about something that happened to me a few years ago in a Summer not unlike many Summers that My husband and I had for many years of learning God’s provision. This particular Summer it had been very hot and humid and truly it seemed like one of the leanest Summers that we had in a long time.


We were Pastoring a small church at the time and we both had been working at the school for many years and each Summer we had no jobs and had to trust God for the provision for how we were going to live through that few month period. This summer was no different. At the end of the year I would always start getting this feeling of almost panic wondering how we were going to make it that Summer. This particular Summer when that panic hit me, God said “ I want you to take the money that you have in your purse and send it to a particular ministry. I was like “but God that is all that I have and it may have to last….”


Being Obedient, I went on-line and sent the money that He told me to. A few weeks later, I was outside in what seemed like the hottest day of the year. There was not a breeze to be felt, when suddenly, this little cool breeze came across me and I said out loud.,“THANK YOU GOD FOR THAT BREEZE!” He spoke to me that day as I said that and said. “I AM GOING TO REFRESH YOU ON A BREEZE DAUGHTER.” I thought, “what could this mean? I got up from there and went into the house that day and no sooner did I get in there until the phone rang. It was a member of our church and the woman on the other end said “my husband and I want to buy you a new car! We were looking at a couple of them and saw a particular one and it was called a “PLYMOUTH BREEZE!” That night we went to get the BRAND NEW RED BREEZE and we drove around and around that town in it, feeling like millionaires. The Lord at one point told me to look at the new car next to me and said, “see that car” and I said, “yes Lord!” he said, “the blessing of the Lord it makes rich and he adds no sorrow with it!” I said, “What do you mean Lord?” He said. Well, you have a new beautiful car and so do they but, they have a payment book and you do not!"  

You see, what it’s all about is obedience! Obedience and thanking God for the small things like the little breeze that came over me that day and obedience even in the small things. I didn’t think my small offering that day would do anything, but in my obedience we reaped a great harvest and refreshing!” Not only that, God let me know that year that he saw and he heard my plight! This is why when God says sow a seed, he has bigger plans for it than you can imagine or think. My friends, obedience is key! I want to encourage you, that if you are reading this and feel led to sow a seed into this ministry, that God is faithful to refresh you and show himself strong in your time of need! Not only that, He always gives back, pressed down, shaken together and running over!” He wants to show you His faithfulness in your life and wants you to know that you know that it came from Him!

Arise Shine! Jo Ellen Stevens
