I’ve had the opportunity to watch the movie “War Room” for a second time, and I find myself, once again, deeply impacted by the important and powerful message the Kendrick brothers have delivered to a world in need.
If you walk away from the movie with anything less than a desire to stand up and fight for the life God designed us to have, you have missed the heart of the story.
Below are a few quotes from the movie:
“War has been part of humanity in every age…There always seems to be something to fight for. Very few of us know how to fight the right way or understand who we are really fighting against. We need to have the right [plan] and resources because victories don’t come by accident.”
“Good Intentions Without A Good Strategy Leads To Poor Results”
We MUST have a plan! Without one, we will loose the fight…& the fight is not against man.
Put on the Whole Armor of God…
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. 14 Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. 16 In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; 17 and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, 18 praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints, 19 and also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains, that I may declare it boldly, as I ought to speak. -Ephesians 6
We can hear the Word of God and gain knowledge, but until we actually treat it like a VERB (through obedience) we will not see the fruit we desire in our lives.
I pray that the “plan” outlined above, might be an encouragement to you.
Don’t start your day without a strategy… your enemy has one.
Get out your sword (which is the Word of God) and fight for LIFE.
Elizabeth: I don’t have time to pray that much every day.
Miss Clara: But you apparently have time to fight losing battles with your husband?
“Pray and ask God to do what only He can do and then get out of the way so He can do it.”
