Prevail through the Messy Middle
I hate spiritual spam...
It clutters my inbox and forces me to delete, delete, delete. (And sometimes feel guilty for doing so....Yuk!)
Our aim is to make you A&Ox5 (Alert and Oriented times 5)
That means you know where you are, who you are, what time it really is, what He's set before you, and how to move on it.
The big directive this month is this: Wrestle TO prevail.
The key is HOW:
- With a great joy of FREEDOM which is released in you and through you. - With DECLARATIONS about His Promises and Your Identity. - With deep awareness that we have an ABUNDANCE of His favor, are FILLED with BLESSING, and that we prevail for our INHERITANCE.
(Jump to this section of the replay for 10 minutes to grab just this nugget...But there is more.)
During WWII the D Day Invasion marked the turning point of the war - yet the full victory of V Day was a year later.
During that time, there were more fatalities than in any other time: That's the messy middle.
The invasion and incarnation of Jesus (His life, death, resurrection, ascension) marked 'D Day' but we're in the great battles before 'V Day' of His return.
That's the messy middle.
As Alpha and Omega, beginning and end, He is our source, and to Him we shall return.
The challenge is this MESSY MIDDLE when we can become blurry, disconnected and discouraged as the warfare wails.
"What to do, what to do, what to do?!?!?!?"
The book of Esther (linked 8 times to this month) sets strategy.
Two declarations were out there: One to bring death to His people; one that authorization them to fight.
THEY CHOSE TO FIGHT BY THE AUTHORITY OF THE 2ND DECLARATION in the midst of their MESSY MIDDLE.
So do we.
We're a freedom outpost with a watchman apostolic anointing: We watch, report, battle and provide alignment for those called by God to be part of His '300' to move out in new models across the region, nation, and world.
But we must take the fight where it's belongs against the right what at the right time and in the right place.
We do so in an honorable manner as we stay anchored in the worship and Presence of Jesus.
We feel badly that most of the Body hasn't a clue about the war or if they do fight it, they seem to fight against the wrong things with the wrong tools for the wrong reasons.
Time to recalibrate.
God is raising up the resistance movement of the remnant - the scattered, shattered shards that God alone would decide to draft and deploy for this work.
Become A&Ox5 this month and wrestle to prevail in the joy of freedom.
