Hello old friends, new followers and fellow bloggers-
Happy Memorial Day! This title came to me in prayer this afternoon. I was praying concerning a situation, and what came to my spirit was “No longer in the trenches.” I believe that some of us have been going through some serious warfare, whether it’s warfare on our jobs or in our homes or etc. This warfare has gotten so intense, that we hopped back into the trenches to take cover and regain strength to fight again. There’s nothing wrong with spending a moment in the trenches, but after awhile we have to get back out there and fight for what God has promised us.
The Enemy, through our return to the trenches- He begins to think that we are weak, that we are retreating and He runs havoc in our lives. He uses anything to break us down and He smothers us in our problems, thinking that if we lack hope- we’ll give up and throw in the towel . But I don’t know about you, but I’ve been in this war with God for too long to just give up. I’ve been doing this for too long, not to win!
I believe that today, in the irony of this holiday, the Holy Spirit quicken my spirit to get out of the trenches and to return to war. He empowered me to war for my family, to war for my friends, to war for my better half. He empowered me to war, because in Christ Jesus – those who war, win! I encourage you to get out of the trenches and to return to the battlefield; armed in prayer, the word and the power of the Holy Spirit. You will win, as you place your trust in Him!
So stand with me as a fellow believer, determined to be no longer in the trenches. God bless and Happy Memorial Day!
Until next time,
