Are You Ready?: Prayer Note #129 (Last one)

Dutch Sheets tells us, "We need to be like Sam and Jed.

Hearing that a $5,000 bounty had been offered for the capture or killing of wolves, they became bounty hunters.

Waking up one night, Sam saw that they were surrounded by 50 pairs of gleaming eyes - ravenous wolves licking hungry chops.

'Jed, wake up,' he whispered to his sleeping partner. 'We're rich!'

We need to see the multitude of unbelievers around us, not as threats, but as opportunities.

Our task would be overwhelming were it not for the fact that we are relying on God's strength and ability, not ours.

Though a host should encamp against us, we can still be confident (see Ps. 27:3).

Gideon's 300 were more than enough to defeat 135,000 with God on their side.

If He is for us, who can successfully be against us (see Rom. 8:31)?

Let's do it! Let's let God arise and His enemies be scattered.

Let's fill our bag with the stones of victory and run to meet Goliath.

Let's take Kiriah-Arba.

Let's run through some troops and leap over some walls.

Let's demonstrate the awesomeness of our God.

Let's growl! Let's roar! Let's let Jesus live through us.

He is ready - are you?

Are you ready to walk in your calling as an intercessor? re-present Jesus as the reconciler and the warrior?...

To distribute His benefits and victory?...To meet, to carry away, to set boundaries?

Are you ready to birth, to liberate, to strike the mark?...To fill some bowls to make some declarations, to watch and pray?

Are you Ready?

Remember: 'Life is fragile, handle with PAGA"

Today’s quote: Daniel Paladin – Some notes I took from his message 2/19/12:

     Without Jesus, we have no right to eat from God’s table.
     God has loved me and has empowered me to obey Him.
     We get an audience with Jesus when we praise God!
     Bring continually an offering of sacrifice to praise God:  
  the fruits of our lips of praise.
     Speak up! It demands a comment! Say something!
     Express our thanksgiving, as to what Jesus Christ has done: 
  The Cross
     This is real Christianity! Worship Jesus! Get radical!
     We get to serve as priests!

Our thought for today:  Sing and make music to God from your heart.

Our Scripture for today:  Ps. 13:6  "I will sing unto the LORD, because he hath dealt bountifully with me."
