In my prayer time this morning I heard the Spirit say -- rise up mighty warrior-- over and over again. It is time we use the power and authority that the Lord has given us in the situations that we face. It is time to stop "rolling over and playing dead". It is time to stop wallowing in self-pity. It is time to stop throwing up our hands in defeat. It is time to stop murmuring and talking about the situations and problems, and start doing something about it.
The Bible says that the kingdom of heaven suffers violence and the violent take it by force. It is not taken by whining and crying and complaining. It is taken by faith and boldness. It is taken by recognizing that you are a mighty warrior with God-given authority and the anointing to set captives free, to open prison doors to those who are bond, to turn the battle to the gates, it tread on serpents and scorpions, to thwart the plans of the enemy, and to see your King exalted.
It is time to pick up your armor and put it on. It is time to take the sword of the Spirit- the Word of God- and use it. Stand on God's Word, hold fast to His promises, step out in faith, claim His truths, apply them to the situations. Then stand upon them. Dig your heels into the "ground" and declare, "No matter what comes I will not be moved, because God is for me so who can be against me". Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world. You are already more than a conqueror. Jesus already defeated the devil and destroyed his works. Jesus has delegated His authority to you in the here and now to use while you are on earth. He has give you the keys of the kingdom-- authority.
It is time the church stop acting like weaklings. It is time we stop living without power. It is time we stop caving in to every trial, test and temptation that comes our way. It is time we stand up, stand firm, be bold and trust in our Mighty Warrior King whose strong right arm has already won the victory.
Have a great day. Rise up mighty warrior!
