My father’s war medals still continue to amaze me. He never talked about them that I know of. So I didn’t even know he had received any until after his death. And still there was more to the story. It turns out he didn’t receive just one, he received several! Even after his death his life still amazes me. He was a fearless man but now I know at least part of the reason why.
Oh beloved, you may not know everything about yourself, but God says His people have medals of honor too. You’ve been through battles and battles. You just call it life and it’s been rough. But God says well done soldier of the Cross. Well done! He wants you to know this morning that you have achieved much in the Kingdom. You have been through much but in the heavenly realm you’ve been sent on assignment and you’ve achieved spiritual stature you know not of. It’s time for you to know that you are reigning with the King of Kings. It’s no light thing that you are a survivor. You are more than, more than a survivor, you are top in the battalion of faith! You are moving up in the ranks of heavenly calling! You’ve been sent as an emissary to the nations because you’ve been set free. No prisoner of war are you. The disappointments have to flee. The depression cannot remain! The worry and fear and all enemies of your King must be taken captive to the authority you walk in! You’re not going to fail, you’re not going to be chained any more. Walk free! Live with the authority you have been given by God through Christ! Your life is amazing and your King has said fearless you are!
God loves you and He’s for you! Rejoice that you are ranked as an officer of the heavenlies. Rejoice that you are in a win win situation! Rejoice that God is with you wherever you go! And rejoice that you are walking in favor, standing in authority and living in the Light of God’s Victorious Plan!
