Thanksgiving is next week and my refrigerator is bare. I really need to go to the grocery store today.
My furniture is dusty and my wood floors are dull. I really need to clean my house today.
My best friend has a birthday coming up. I need to go shopping for cards.
I REALLY need to do something about that messy garage so that I can actually STEP out of my car without tripping over a box of Goodwill collections or a pice of lawn equipment.
But not today. I don’t have time.
I have dragons to slay today.
1 Timothy 6:11-12 says 11 But you, WOMAN of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness. 12 Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
I realized a long time ago that God has placed a “CALLING” on every single life. A special assignment for some KINGDOM WORK. ETERNAL WORK. That work NEVER fits into everyday life and plans. It is NEVER the easy thing to do. Most people never really “get it” and wonder why you aren’t doing this or that.
Martha did it.
Jesus was sitting right in front of her, ready to share His heart but she was busy about “many things”. She missed the ONE THING that really mattered. She thought she had to make dinner. After all, who else would and it HAD TO BE DONE—right???
Jesus fed thousands with some fish and bread.
There are always things that seem more important. Things that seem to NEED our attention. Good things.
I have discovered that most often the battle the Lord has placed us in has to do with the WORD OF OUR TESTIMONY (Rev 12:11); putting our FAITH out for something bigger than we can imagine; seeing where God is working and joining it; seeing where the enemy is working and attacking it. It takes sitting at the feet of Jesus, getting the battle plan, then TAKING ACTION!
I have been called to be a WARRIOR WOMAN in the Kingdom of God. To fight DRAGONS in the spirit realm.
OK..so the Bad news I am not that cute of a Warrior Woman :(……….The good news is I am GOD’S Warrior Woman.
God gives us the plan.
God gives us the weapons.
God gives us the power.
No shopping today. No cleaning the garage.
But I AM OUT TO SLAY A Dragon–or maybe it’s a TURKEY 🙂
Gotta go now….
Check out Joshua 11:15 and consider…
What is my assignment?
Where does my testimony, my life experience and situation allow me touring down the lies of the enemy?
What battle rages around me that I need to srtike with God’s Truth and God’s Promises?
What battle are you fighting today??
