Whatever’s Going Down

We’ve all been there haven’t we? Doing battle with the enemy? Trudging through the trenches, catching on the thickets, walking through the deadly fires of trial! In deep and just trying to keep our head above water as we find our way through the maze of whatever it is that’s going down? Yeah, we have! We’ve been there ~ everyone of us ~ trying desperately in our finite, and weak, human frame to just trust through a head knowledge that says “it’s” big and “it’s” steep and it’s so out of our control, yet, it hangs over our weary heads, and tired frames like a Pig-Pen cloud! A cloud of thick, messy dust that just wants to settle right there in our world. A dust cloud of “heavy” and “relentless” that wants to lodge right over our heads and weigh us down and push down, down and down even father still.

You know it don’t you? Those wars that blow in out of nowhere to distract our spiritual focus and undermine our faith in the God who we say we trust? So beautiful soul, these are the times to rise up on wings of faith above all the difficult, above all the nonsense, above all the hard places and the tight spots and let God plan the strategy for battle. He’s so skilled and so equipped to do it. He’s got just the right fight for the enemy and can run him off-course so quickly your head will swirl. He’s sovereign! He sees ahead and knows just the right move at just the right time. His strategy is out of this world and divinely sealed with perfection. His compassion so rich and His grace so sweet and His faithfulness so rock solid, that it can make our problem puny and pale.

So you and I and we and us ~ we can trudge through those trenches, get all caught up in those thickets and get burned in the flames of our own futile, attempts or we can simply turn it all over to a God who still cares so deeply and covers our back so faithfully! It’s a no-brainer sweet soul.

Whatever it is that hangs over you today, as hard as it is, let it go! Let it float over the hard spots and right into the hands of the Saviour of your world. He’s got it and He’s got you and even though there might be difficulty ahead, you can know He’ll bring you through! When the battle rages and gets hot, step aside and make room for God.

“You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the LORD will give you, Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them tomorrow, and the LORD will be with you.’

2 Chronicles 20:17

“Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the LORD will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again.”

Exodus 14:13

Crazy Faith

DSC_0001 1
So you and I and we and us, as Christ followers we have so much to be thankful for. We have a connection with a powerful God who is in control of our lives, and our world! We have a relationship with Jesus, the One and only One who brings us the solution to our sin problem, and yeah, we have some kind of a crazy faith that works. It just a crazy, mixed up faith that fights on its knees and runs on God’s power in His economy, where less is more, weakness is strength and loss is victory. Who can think it? Who can know it and who can understand it? It’s a crazy faith that wars against an enemy with a love and no strings and heals a hurt with forgiveness and no anger! A crazy kind of faith that rises to power, clothed in humility! A kind of faith that fights a war with peace and simply takes a back seat to become an honoured guest at the Royal table. It’s a strange faith for sure ~ but beautiful soul it works. You know it! It works in the difficult places and carries us through the hard times. It graces us in our most undeserving moments and oh don’t we know it when that grace washes over us?

Onlookers, think we’ve lost our minds to this crazy faith and Paul confirms that they will in 1 Corinthians 1:18, “For the message about the cross is nonsense to those who are being destroyed, but it is God’s power to us who are being saved.” The biggest need for those outside of the faith is to prayed into the faith and into the fold and into God’s kingdom. Our biggest responsibility is to do the praying to bring them in. It’s a daily fight ….this spiritual battle ..this war with principalities and powers in a dark and evil world. So beautiful you ~ put on your spiritual armour and grab the victory shirt for God’s team. He’s already won but we have to keep in the game. We have to play it out and fight the good fight of faith through prayer to a God who changes things. Fight for this crazy faith that works to undermine the enemy and put him in his place. Fight for our countries, our governments, our world conditions and for those who wander in search of truth. Fight for wisdom and enlightenment and for spiritual eyes to be opened to the light. Yeah you ~ grab that victory Shirt washed in the blood of the Savior and fight for your families and fight for your kids, and fight for your grandchildren. God’s awesome and amazing power is at our disposal. Our prayers unlock it and our faith unleashes it. Don’t give up! Not even for a moment in time!
