Have you ever been in a battle, one that seems impossible to fight simply because you just can't figure out what is happening or why? The entire thing just baffles you so much that you find yourself in utter confusion and despair?
We can clearly see as we inspect the chaos all around; there are mysterious conflicts tearing lives apart in just about every family we all know.
Can I tell you that KNOW ONE IS EXEMPT from the attacks either! We who serve Jesus Christ as our Savior, have been assured that we are MORE than conquerors in Him. Yet, that does not mean the devil himself will not attack us with all he has. He is doing that now, everyday people are sending me letters, phone calls and texts asking me to pray for their spouses and more so, their children.
I could direct my thoughts here to an entirely different direction, but tonight I just want to steer toward the solution and where to retrieve the emergency help RIGHT NOW! ["...Now is the time of salvation!!!!"] In my spirit I feel the Lord calling His Body to SEEK HIS FACE, pray like they have never prayed before...pray through until you actually feel the release and still pray some more! Ephesians 6:12 "For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the despotisms, against the powers, against [the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere." It says we are CONTENDERS! Wrestling....fighting for who? Our FAMILY my dear friends! Our spouses and our children! Aren't they worth it?
What is stunning to me is the great majority are from godly mom's and dad's who have raised their children; not just in church...but in a godly-holy home! Husband and wives who have been active in church and personal Bible study and prayer as a couple.
I have told my son within this past year; "I WILL FIGHT FOR YOU-I WILL DIE FOR YOU!" When I told him this I had no idea that it was going to happen (at least this soon). Sure, when he was a small child, I prayed for him. But, lately it has been a daily WAR! I am not alone, there are mom's out there wailing at their son's bedsides as I write this...that son has left home and living in darkness! Mother's scared for their children who are fighting deep depressions! 2 Timothy 3 "BUT UNDERSTAND this, that in the last days will come (set in) perilous times of great stress and trouble [hard to deal with and hard to bear]."
I believe one (of many) tools God has given us is the potent work of the Holy Spirit. Using this from His Word in Daniel 2:22 "He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him." This brings me back to the beginning when I had asked- when you can't figure out what is going on; we must ask from God this; "Father God reveal to us Lord what is hidden in darkness (secret)." 1 Corinthians 4:5 "...for He will both bring to light the secret things that are [now hidden] in darkness and disclose and expose the [secret] aims (motives and purposes) of hearts. Then every man will receive his [due] commendation from God."
As we pray this; God has been ever so faithful in removing the barriers so we can see because HIS Light is making it all quite clear!
I do believe the Lord is coming very, very soon. We all want our loved ones to be apart of this great reunion in the sky! So, we have a job to do-it's time to CONTEND for the eternal lives of our families!
PRAY...PRAY HARD...PRAY THROUGH!
