I dreamed last night that Danny was watching another man across the woods. The man was trying to shoot Danny. I also felt that Danny was not alone. That he had a friend with him, but Danny was the only one I saw. It was as though I was a fly on the wall. I wasn’t there, but I was observing and I also knew what Danny was thinking. And I watched Danny’s face and knew that he felt he must keep his eyes on the man across the woods. If he lost eye contact then the man could move in through the woods without being seen. Danny was armed and ready for this malicious enemy. He was not fearful or angry; he was just watchful and ready.
Oh beloved, some of you are in a fight of your life. You are concerned that if you take your eyes off the trouble for just a moment it will completely engulf you. You are very fearful. But God wants you to know you are not alone in the woods of this insecurity, suffering or pain. God is with you and He is just who He says He is: a Very Present Help in time of need, The LORD of Hosts and A Strong Tower. You are armed as well. You have the High Praises of God in your mouth and the Word of God in your hand. No enemy can defeat you, no worry can overtake you and no sorrow can take you out. You don’t have to make things happen. Worship is your greatest weapon against the onslaught of the enemy. Even if depression, disappointment, discouragement and despair are attacking you they cannot run over you. It’s time for you to realize who you are in Christ and be fully armed against the schemes of the enemy. The woods of life are fully of all the junk of the world, but you hold in your heart the answer to every demonic force that ever tries to sneak their way into your heart.
God loves you and He’s for you! Run to His Word this morning and read about all the war plans God has initiated on your behalf! You are in the company of the Only King of the Universe who soldiers your life with a myriad of angels who encamp around you! You have a call on your life and God will see it come to pass. Rejoice that as you worship the Lord the enemy has to flee, as you read the Word He cannot sneak in, as you walk in God’s Precepts the enemy cannot trip you up! You are destined to move beyond the woods of turmoil and into the wide open spaces of God’s Presence who will go with you as you live in the Light of His Glory and Grace!
