I hear a wake up call sounding for the people of God!!! You have been fighting in the wrong realm. This battle is not with other people it is against rulers and principalities and powers of this dark world. (read Ephesians 6:12)
There is a difference between confidently conveying your views and getting caught in self defense mode. Self defense is always founded in fear. The world tells us we need to protect what we hold dear so we build walls around us to keep us safe. We buy security systems, take self defense courses and buy handguns.
It is good to know how to handle an actual attack if it comes, but we shouldn’t let fear put us in a continual state of “pre attack” viewing everyone around as a potential threat to our security. It will break down our relationships because it’s hard to truly love someone when we are living in a guarded state.
Many of you have gone through tremendous loss which makes you feel helpless and defenseless. Taking things into your own hands comes quite natural and we become fighters, but we are fighting in the wrong realm. He wants to heal those deep wounds and to be your protector and vindicator. He is beckoning you to come under His wings. He wants you to wholeheartedly trust Him so you can wholeheartedly love others. He wants you to trust Him to be your security system.
The enemy has gotten us distracted fighting each other instead of him. He is the one behind all the pain, fear, gossip, jealousy, control, manipulation an intimidation we see around us right now. You want to fight?
TAKE IT OUT ON THE ENEMY and not the people around you.
Breaking down unity, compassion and understanding is the enemy’s chief objective. DON’T LET HIM WIN!! Take a firm stand in the spirit AGAINST division, misunderstanding and deception. Take a stand in the spirit FOR unity, understanding and truth. This is where you can fight as the warrior you are called to be!
Bottom line, we are called to LOVE one another here on earth and fiercely fight it out in the spirit. Let’s not get the two realms confused.
