Indifference vs Victory
Revelation 3: 19b-22
Be diligent and turn from your indifference.
"Look! Here I stand at the door and knock. If you hear me calling and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal as friends. I will invite everyone who is victorious to sit with me on my throne
Evil makes every attempt to overtake good.
Who was it that said "If we ain't for 'em, we' ag'in 'em."
In Revelation 3:15-16, Jesus makes reference that we can't sit on the fence, we need to declare either hot or cold. If we're cold, we belong to Satan's team. If we are hot, we belong to God's team....the good team.
Let's look at Jesus' encounter with Satan in Mathew 4:4 where he was tempted 40 days and 40 nights to turn from God. Satan recognized the power Jesus could yield were he under his, Satan's, command, and wanted him on his team.
Jesus rebuked Satan the 1rst time, letting him know people must feed on every word of God. The 2nd time, Jesus told Satan, do not test the Lord your God. The 3rd time, Jesus was point blank clear when he told him, "God out of here, Satan. for the Scriptures say, "You must worship the LORD your God; serve only him." Interesting that Jesus kept saying "The Lord your God", recognizing that God made Satan, too, and maybe was attempting to remind Satan where his allegiance SHOULD be.
This is for a new Christian or anywhere along the journey. Jesus tells us how to battle Satan. 1. Get out your Bible and read the Word of God so you know what you are supposed to be doing. 2. Don't do things that you know are not something that he would want you to do....that's testing him to see if he is true. He is. You are the one being tested to see if you are true to him. 3. And finally, plain old rebuke Satan and stop him in his tracks. This let's God, Jesus, Holy Spirit know you are for them, and, let's Satan know you are against him.
Can human battles with countries, or within us, against Satan be fought spiritually through feeding on the word of God and worshiping the LORD our God, and rebuking Satan....and his assigns?
YES! Every battle in the world....and yours.
Moses and Joshua won when Moses' arms were raised to God in prayer, praise, honor, and in request for victory....believing! But be aware, others helped keep his arms raised! Aaron and Hur helped him. See Exodus 17:9-13. WE have Jesus and Holy Spirit to help us in prayer to God for victory!
Reread today's reference again at the start of this 'Thought'. Pick up your cross - go forward into battle with God, Jesus, Holy Spirit. Raise your arms in praise, believing in victory, regardless of the battle that surrounds you, or is within you.
ONWARD, Christian Soldier!
Let Us Pray
God, Jesus, Holy Spirit, perfect timing for this, thank you, God, Jesus, Holy Spirit. The world is not at peace, my individual world is not at peace. Many in the world are experiencing trauma, pain, unrest, disrespect, suffering, plain old evil. I am grateful, that I, and others who read this, are reminded of who you are, that you are, and how wonderful you are today....and everyday. Thank you for being there, listening, helping, and giving all of us the best steps to take to defeat Satan. I praise you. I thank you. I love you. Amen.

Let us hear from Paul as he prays:
When I think of the wisdom and scope of God's plan, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will give you mighty inner strength through his Holy Spirit. And I pray that Christ will be more and more at home in your hearts as you trust in him. May your roots go down deep into the soil of God's marvelous love. And may you have the power to understand, as all God's people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love really is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is so great you will never fully understand it. Then you will be filled with the fullness of life and power that comes from God.
Now glory be to God! By his mighty power at work within us, he is able to accomplish infinitely more than we would ever dare to ask or hope. May he be given glory in the church and in Christ Jesus forever and ever through endless ages. Amen. Ephesians 3:14-21 NLT

Jesus' Prayer of Thanksgiving
'The Unforced Rhythms of Grace'
"Abruptly Jesus broke into prayer: "Thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth. You've concealed your ways from sophisticates and know-it-alls, but spelled them out clearly to ordinary people. Yes, Father, that's the way you like to work."
Jesus resumed talking to the people, but now tenderly. "The Father has given me all these things to do and say. This is a unique Father - Son operation, coming out of Father and Son intimacies and knowledge. No one knows the Son the way the Father does, nor the Father the way the Son does. But I'm not keeping it to myself; I'm ready to go over it line by line with anyone willing to listen."
"Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you'll recover your life. I'll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me - watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won't lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you'll learn how to live freely and lightly.
Matthew 11: 25-30
And the people said,
I now write most prayers in the position of ' I ' (first person) because most people are sitting at their computer alone, not in groups, and it allows those reading and praying to personalize the prayer as coming from them going to God. Variations may appear on holidays when families may wish to use the prayer provided. I encourage you to pray your own prayers as well.

NOTE: I said it long ago, but let me say it again. If you are wanting to lead a group, start a church, or are confined in an institution, or live in a country where the Gospel is not preached, and you don't know what to say or how to say it, and yet feel led to share, teach, or preach, besides just reading straight out of the Bible and sharing what God puts on your heart, please feel free to share any or all of what I've written, if it will help you, as long as you include where it comes from, due to copyright laws. Jesus gave God's love and healing freely, as well as his message. Our responsibility is to get the Word out to those who need to hear it. If what I've written....by the power and direction of the Holy Spirit....or what he has said through me....has helped you, it may help others that you know. You are welcome to share it. God calls all of us to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with the world. Please share it with the fullness of love that God, Jesus, Holy Spirit....and I....have given it. Amen!
