Battle for the vision!

Verse of the Day

Announce this among the nations: Prepare yourselves for war. Wake up the warriors. Have all the warriors come near and attack. [GWT]Joel 3:9

….

This is the time for the warrior within us, the war like qualities in us to wake up. We may have fallen asleep on that project, on that goal, on that vision for so long, but it’s time to wake up! It’s time we re-engaged ourselves. It’s time we revived them all over again. It’s time we stayed resolute in our thinking, in our focus, and persisted till the very end. In the book of 2 Samuel 23:8-39 David’s mighty men were mentioned. There was a reason why they were mentioned. There was a reason why their exploits and achievements were mentioned. There was also a reason why in 2 Samuel 23:24 thirty (30) of them were made mentioned. There may have been others, but these 30 distinguished themselves. They didn’t give up on the vision; they didn’t give up on the goal. I don’t know about you, but I sure want to be among those whose names are mentioned among those who did Greater exploits. But to do greater exploits, we can’t just be sitting around on our backside sleeping! No far from it! We need to activate the words of God concerning our life by speaking His words and believing them. We need to refuse to let our life be intimidated, oppressed, harassed, and tormented by the hard work it needs to do to get to where it desires to be! And we need to be of good courage. Be of sound mind; be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Trust and rely on Him solely and God will never disappoint you. It’s time to get those wheels moving again! It’s time to be resolute to the end! It’s time for War! #Verseoftheday #Devotional #Bible #Jesus #Challenges #Vision #Goal #War #HolyWar #Battle #BattleForTheVision

Announce this among the nations: Prepare yourselves for war. Wake up the warriors. [GWT] Joel 3:9

….

We all know how we see ourselves, but I ask you, how do you think Jesus sees you? Now that is the more important question. Because how you see yourself and how God sees you are sometimes never the same. We’re still on the fight of faith, still on the question of “what lens are you looking through”? The truth is certain situations may have made you so weak, that there’s nothing left in you to fight. Aside from being “Chosen”, God adds that He’s made you a remarkable, wonderful, Extraordinary, Amazing, Outstanding, Incredible, Astonishing person [Psalm 139:14], there’s no shame in that. Just because you don’t see it doesn’t mean you’re not it. Now what lens are you looking through? You know that temporary setback, that trial of your patience, those tests of your endurance and that period of adjustments are not permanent problems there to frustrate you. Truth is you’re tired, but that doesn’t mean you can’t muster the strength to fight your fight of faith. Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God is your lens of faith. Ask Him to show you how He views you. Ask Him how He sees you. Ask Him what He sees when He focuses on you. Ask Him, Ask Him, Ask Him what He sees when He looks at you. And believe me, after you’re done asking, you will never again fear any form of defeat in 2014 and in the years to come!
