Last week there were MANY struggles. Emotionally. Physically. Spiritually.
I took them all personally, fought the good fight of faith and prayed through to victory. Victory was achieved, however, my armor was banged up somewhat.
Then, at our women’s conference that we held on Saturday, I found out that the other leaders also went through similar struggles. Most of them, unlike me, did not take them personally but took them as a call to intercession on behalf of the women that would be coming to the conference.
Sure enough – every woman that was set free at that conference was set free from some of the VERY SAME ISSUES we had all experienced! Isn’t that just like our God to allow us to truly experience things so that we can intercede from the depths of our beings?!
Did I intercede? Yes! But, I thought I was interceding for myself – silly me! I’ve been around the block a few times – I should have known better. But, quite honestly, a few years had passed since the last time I was involved on the front lines in a conference setting and I simply forgot. All I can say is Father, forgive.
I said all that to say this. Dear ones, when we experience an onslaught of ‘things’ in our lives, perhaps we had better step back and ask the Lord to reveal if it is us or if it is a call to intercession on behalf of another. Intercession over various things works either way, but when we allow ourselves to become very specific, there is greater victory!
We are called to be Jesus to people, and He was sent to ‘set the captive free’, etc. Therefore, our call is the same – so is it a call to intercession – if so – INTERCEDE with fervency like never before! Time is short and we need to be in the trenches!
