FGGAM 2023 Devotion:

“Our prayer and focus today, as we continue into the year 5783, is a year of retribution…
of all things being restored”.. that we will experience a shift in the both the spiritual
and the natural realm.
Our prayers come forth as a strong vibration that will shake the earth and bring
down principalities and powers that have unlawfully exalted themselves into high
places, attempting to lord over God’s people and blind the conscience of this world.
Jesus, You said, “All things have been entrusted to Me by My Father. No one knows the
Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom
the Son chooses to reveal Him….All authority (all power of absolute rule) in heaven and on
earth has been given to Me. Go, therefore, and make disciples of all peoples, in all the nations
of the earth!” (Matthew 28:18-19)
That authority is the assignment in which FGGAM will operate and pray.
Jesus bestowed His authority on us as ambassadors of His Kingdom and said,
“I assure you and most solemnly say to you, anyone who believes in Me [as Savior] 
will also do the things that I do; and he will do even greater things than these [in extent and outreach], because I am going to the Father. 13 And I will do whatever you ask in My name 
[as My representative/ambassador], this I will do, so that the Father may be glorified and
celebrated in the Son. 14 If you ask Me anything in My name [as My representative/ambassador], 
I will do it.” (John 14:12-14)
We therefore commit to minister in this authority, that God’s will shall be done now on earth just
as it is in Heaven.
We come against the lawlessness that the enemy of our souls has unleashed throughout this
city, state, and nation. We declare an end to the spirit of suicide and murder and abortion.
We take authority in the political and educational realms and cast down every vain imagination
and every high thing that attempts to exalt itself against the knowledge of God, and bring into captivity every thought, to the obedience of Christ! (2 Corinthians 10:5)
Retribution involves both punishment and restitution. God’s judgement brings consequences
for evil and recompense for the just. God is going to be active in meting out both according to
the deeds that have been done… Both for evil and for good.
This will be a year of Isaiah 35 which I have always seen as prophetic toward New Mexico:

35 The wilderness and the desert will rejoice,
And the desert will shout for joy and blossom;
Like the crocus
2 It will blossom profusely
And rejoice with joy and jubilation.
The glory of Lebanon will be given to it,
The majesty of Carmel and Sharon.
They will see the glory of the Lord,
The majesty of our God.
3 Strengthen the exhausted, and make the feeble strong.
4 Say to those with anxious heart,
“Take courage, fear not.
Behold, your God will come with vengeance;
The retribution of God will come,
But He will save you.”
5 Then the eyes of those who are blind will be opened,
And the ears of those who are deaf will be unstopped.
6 Then those who limp will leap like a deer,
And the tongue of those who cannot speak will shout for joy.
For waters will burst forth in the wilderness,
And streams in the desert.
7 The scorched land will become a pool
And the thirsty ground springs of water;…..
Grass becomes reeds and rushes.
8 A highway will be there, a roadway,
And it will be called the Highway of Holiness.
………the redeemed will walk there,
10 And the redeemed of the Lord will return
And come to Zion with joyful shouting,
And everlasting joy will be on their heads.
They will obtain gladness and joy,
And sorrow and sighing will flee away.


Our retribution in this coming season will be a year of the blessings and joy of the Lord!
