We overcome regardless of the enemy’s strategy because of who GOD is. We can rest in the revelation of who He is as we focus on Him.
Make the valley you are going through your “secret place of worship and intimacy” and watch Him fight for you and turn things around. God is committed to releasing victory to you in any season of your life regardless of whether you are in the valley or on the hills.
“We use God’s mighty weapons, not worldly weapons, to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments.” – 2 Corinthians 10:4 (NLT)
“But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into Him in all things, which is the head, even Christ.” – Ephesians 4:15
To those beginning their spiritual journey, God reveals Himself as Father. The picture is of a loving father embracing and reassuring his children.
After knowing God as Father He goes on to reveal Himself as Warrior, “The LORD is a warrior…” (Exodus 15:3 NIV). The picture is of a warrior training recruits for battle. To those who know God as both Father and Warrior He reveals Himself as Consuming Fire, “For our God is a consuming fire” (Hebrews 12:29).
God is “from the beginning,” that is, He is eternal. He has no beginning and no end. The picture is of an all-consuming reality (Song of Songs 8:6). When we know Him as Father, we become secure in His love. When we know Him as Warrior, we become strong in His might. When we know Him as Consuming Fire, we become one with Him in wholehearted union.
QUESTIONS TO ASK MYSELF:
• Is God specifically revealing Himself to me as either Father, Warrior, or Consuming Fire?
• Is there anything in you that resists knowing God as Father, Warrior, or Consuming Fire?
• Are you growing in the knowledge of God or are you resisting the change He desires to bring in your life?
Mark 11:24 – “Therefore I say unto you, what things soever you desire, when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you shall have them.”
I KEEP THE SWITCH OF FAITH TURNED ON.
WHEN I BELIEVE I RECEIVE — FAITH IS RELEASED. I DON’T HAVE TO MAKE IT HAPPEN. I DON’T HAVE TO FEEL IT HAPPEN. IT JUST HAPPENS. THE REBORN SPIRIT IS MADE THAT WAY.
Mark 5:36 – “Be not afraid, only believe.”
