The Battlefield

nature people night dark

I know people who are warriors at heart

and others who are generals, strategists, planners.

Their efforts, results are not the same. What blesses one,

frustrates the other. We are positioned

on a battlefield to be found faithful,

that is all. But then again

I see through the eyes I have been given,

from a watchman’s post.

You may see it differently.

How might a warrior

perceive the lay of unseen land?

I am open to hearing your perspective,

long to prove faithful to all that God is doing.

There is a time to consider our POSITION in the building, the coming, the praying in, of God’s Kingdom. The Bible tells us our battle is NOT AGAINST FLESH AND BLOOD, but against spiritual forces of darkness in unseen places. And there is a call to each one of us, I believe, to stand faithful in our posting. To fulfill our God-given mandate to show up, be present, stay real and do good work as we are led by the Spirit of God. And we know that some days are tougher than others. But your toughest day may be my easiest, and my toughest day may look like a cake-walk to you. We are each one unique. We all bring DIFFERENT GIFTS to the table, and yet we are called to be FAITHFUL to the God we know to be FAITHFUL even when we are faithless. Let us ENCOURAGE one another, and seek to understand the differences we discern between us, even as we uphold the standard of Unity Among Us, one of the spiritual principles of lasting VICTORY in the heavenlies. Amen.
