The more all this “physical stuff” comes at me… ripping and tearing… trying to discourage me… defeat me… destroy me… the higher I have to climb up the mountain. Israel always built their cities high up the mountain… the enemy had chariots and horses but they were useless and could do nothing up the mountain. My enemy wants me to come down to do battle with him in the plains… in the valleys. Not gonna happen… because I know…
And because I know, I pray this almost every day,,,
“… our struggle is not against flesh and blood but against the rulers and their rules….against the principalities and their principles… against the powers… both sets of powers… the world forces of this darkness, and the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. I am now able to…..not only resist and stand firm…. but continually attack the enemy. My weakness is your strength…any strength I have is simply your strength… I will pray at all times in the Spirit… because I don’t know how to pray what needs to be prayed… but you do… Lord, demonstrate your power and authority in all things according to your will and purpose… not according to mine… ”
After 50 years, I finally know… I am not talking about learning… or studying… or grasping some intellectual understanding… but… I know, that I know, that I know… from experiencing Him.
“That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we looked upon and have touched with our hands, concerning the word of life—“
I’m just gonna stay up the mountain and take it to the enemy from up here.
