Soaked in the peace of the Lord...

"When you go to war against your enemies and see horses and chariots and an army greater than yours, do not be afraid of them, because the LORD your God, who brought you up out of Egypt, will be with you. Deuteronomy 20:1 (New International Version)"

I spent a hour and fifteen minutes last night in a small, growing, charismatic church that forewent the traditional Wednesday night 'instructionals' to open the floor to what the Pastor's wife (who led the service) called "Soaking prayer". This was my first experience at this event. Debbie, Pastor Brent's wife, made a comment in regards to the evening's event that resounded in my heart, although at the time I didn't realize how impactful it would be. "You could use it," she said, referring to the soaking prayer………..

I could indeed. And an hour and fifteen minutes passed like a gentle whisper in a crowded room……so quick.

And at the end, though God seemed to prompt me to say something, He was content to let me soak in the wisdom imparted and the peace gained. Others spoke of the things God imparted to me in such a way that I know the Spirit was upon those in the room who listened for that gentle voice of the One True King. The Body of Christ is under attack, whether in full corporate body or individually, there is a concerted effort by the enemy and his forces to derail the warriors of the Almighty God in the battlefield of this world. Whether through the traditional methods of disinformation, disheartenment, or distraction or in an increasingly and equally evil way of revisiting the sinful desires of our father Adam in which man seeks to be god, the battle has been, is, and will continue to be joined by those who would pick up sword and shield for their King.

We fight not for our own glory, or the prizes untold. We fight for our regained and designed place in the Kingdom and to rescue the lost souls of those who are in the grip of the evil one.

The world is arrayed against the Truth and would have us to believe that we, as a Army of God, are overwhelmed and understrength. The enemy would have our eyes behold a vast and apparently unwinnable battle against numerous and horrendous numbers of his forces.

Too many are believing with their eyes and not their souls. Too few stand upon the field of faith and are willing to say, "Today is a good day to die."

But, all God needs is a few.

I believe that Jesus stands at the front of the battleline and has turned to you and I, with one simple shout..........

Ozuyewicasta Hoka Hey!!!!!!!! (Oh Zuu yay we chah shta Hoe Kah Hey) Lakota saying

"Stand fast, Warriors!"
