Battle prayer notes 6/2/23

Good morning brother,

Day three topic: Strong leadership. Pass to next generation.

Judges 8:25-35

Strong leadership is key to continued blessing for God's people -- for any people, for that matter. We need to value our leaders and to treat them well. We must also train leaders so that the next generation can experience God's blessing too. Christianity is always just one generation removed from apostasy and unbelief.

A general rule of thumb is that Christian leaders who make their living from the gifts of God’s people should live at the level of their own people – not below or above.

Matt. 25:23

“His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’

When a man’s ways pleases the LORD even your enemies are at peace with you.

When the Lord takes pleasure in anyone’s way, he causes their enemies to make peace with them.”

‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭16‬:‭7‬ ‭

Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Colossians‬ ‭3‬:‭1‬

‭ When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them? ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭8‬:‭3‬-‭4‬ ‭

Our help is in the name of the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭124‬:‭8‬ ‭

Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.‭‭ Psalms‬ ‭51‬:‭10‬-‭12‬ ‭

If you make an altar of stones for me, do not build it with dressed stones, for you will defile it if you use a tool on it. And do not go up to my altar on steps, or your private parts may be exposed.’”

‭‭Exodus‬ ‭20‬:‭25‬-‭26‬

When the Lord takes pleasure in anyone’s way, he causes their enemies to make peace with them.”

‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭16‬:‭7‬ ‭

A better example is your heart than just program. Living out the word than just sharing it.

Gideon was remarkably obedient and filled with faith in the extreme moment of battle. The routine of daily living seems to have been a greater test of his character. This is true for many, and the challenges of daily living are more difficult than those of the extreme moment.

It isn’t enough for us to begin well with God. We must continue on throughout our whole Christian life. Gideon, in his later years, had to look back to see anything done for God. All those works were in the past.

Give us the strength to be like you Jesus.

Let The Words of My Mouth and The Meditation of My Heart ❤️ Be Acceptable in Thy Sight, Oh LORD My STRENGTH and My Redeemer!!! 🙌🏿

But there is a recurring cycle in the book of Judges:

  1. Misery and oppression.

  2. Calling out to God.

  3. God answers with a leader or judge who delivers Israel.

  4. When the judge dies, the people return to their idolatry, and

  5. To misery and oppression.

I wish we could end Gideon's saga on the upswing, but that just isn't accurate. His legacy ends with sadness. God wants us to learn some things here:

  1. We must deflect to God the praises that people give us when they receive a spiritual blessing.

  2. We must never let others put us in the place reserved for God himself.

  3. We must be careful that what we establish as traditions and practices in our families and churches do not carry within them the seeds of our descendents' destruction. Clearly, our legacy to others includes not only our strengths but our weaknesses as well. We must be careful to live with integrity before them.

Thank you for another great day of Zoom Battle Prayer.
