God has called us to overcome… to break away from the crowd and move forward in the assigned tasks we were made to accomplish here on the Earth. We must no longer tolerate the false message of powerless words and passive hearts. The Apostle Paul makes the statement that “we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them” (Eph 2:20).
God has enlisted us in His great army and has a work for us, if we are willing to embrace the assignment.
Jesus our King, has given us authority over all the power of the enemy (Lk 10:19). We are not just equipped for guard duty; all that defensive posturing is for the feeble of heart. In this day, God is handing out assignments that will accomplish His will in the Earth. With the power of the Holy Spirit and a two-edged Sword in our hand, we must make our assault upon the strongholds and fortresses that stand in the way of God’s purposes being fulfilled while we were at our posts.
King David recalled his ability; in God’s anointing, to “bend a bow of bronze” while he was “pursuing his enemies”. He “did not turn back until they were consumed” (Ps 18:37). Keep in mind that this David was first a man of worship and that he did not pursue his enemy without first pursuing God! Yet when God gave him the assignment, he thoroughly defeated his foe.
Here is the Truth: Either we pursue our enemies or our enemies will pursue us!
We must gain Christ’s attitude toward evil; while never confusing the convictions with the goal that accompanied His assignment. The Bible says, “Hate evil, you who love the Lord” (Ps 97:10). Notice its the evil we are to hate… not the individuals who are engaged in the evil. Jesus came to Earth “to destroy the works of the devil” (1 Jn 3:8) and to free humanity from the evil oppressive weight of sin (Lk 4:18-19). How should we; who are His called followers, not also live with the same convictions and goals as our Commander and Chief.
The destruction of evil, breaks the chains that hold people in bondage and slavery.
Our assignment will always correspond to this ultimate goal. Embracing the call of God will bring us to our feet in faith and to our knees in prayer. Realize Saint, that both postures are forward momentum.
