Fight the Good Fight

This Blog is updated each Tuesday."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."
1 Timothy 6:12
.
There is a poetry of motion contained in the Spirit of God. I would love to capture a small percent of the magnitude of what God is doing in the lives of the people around me. Words at this point are superfluous. This is something you can only understand with a heart of faith. What is God saying to us at this point. Be battle ready. I was mesmerized by a verse I read last week.
.
"You will be a new threshing instrument with many sharp teeth.
You will tear your enemies apart, making chaff of mountains.."
Isaiah 41:15
.
I love that. The thought of being that fierce is a striking thing. I want that. I want to tear my enemy apart with my teeth. I hate seeing what he tries to do to my sisters, my family, my husband. Everyone I know is in the heat of it right now. This is exciting me. Mark my words: God is preparing us for something. We are a threat. The enemy does everything he can to attempt retaliation against our gaining ground for the kingdom of God. Nothing could outweigh the joy of knowing that our sisters are being built up and equipped for righteousness.
.
Fight on, my sisters!
.
“I, the Lord, have called you to demonstrate my righteousness. I will take you by the hand and guard you, and I will give you to my people, Israel, as a symbol of my covenant with them. And you will be a light to guide the nations. You will open the eyes of the blind. You will free the captives from prison, releasing those who sit in dark dungeons."
Isaiah 62:6-7
