An Invitation

God speaks. He speaks into our hearts and minds through people, nature, the church. He also speaks to us through His Word. His Word is His love letter to us, His way of helping us remember who we are and assure us of His promises. His Word is the road map to help us live the passionate adventurous lives He always meant for us.

These blog entries are teasers. Insights and revelations to encourage you to read the bible, the greatest piece of literature that was written especially for you, God's child.

Worship Before Battle

Judges 7:15 When Gideon heard the dream and its interpretation, he worshiped God. He returned to the camp of Israel and called out, “Get up! The Lord has given the Midianite camp into your hands.”

What does God want you to do right before you face a battle? What does He want you to do right before you go onto the operating table? Or right before you fight a case in court? Or right before you have a confrontation with your boss?

God wants you to worship Him. You are staring at your impossible battle and worried. God is gently holding your chin, tilting it up until your eyes meet His. He says--Look at me. Magnify me. I am larger than your battle. I am here to prosper you, not to harm you.

If you are facing a battle today, carve some quiet time with your Heavenly Father, look up to Him. Worship Him. He fights your battles, and before you know it, it will be in your hands.
