I know that prayer seems passive. It seems like this thing that we say to do when things are too tough and we want to look like we’re doing something when we’re not. There is a lot happening in the world. I think it’s fair to say that many of us are battling with the uncertainty of what it means to be an American in 2017. And we hear varying opinions on what the nexts steps are and what the resistance should look like. But I assure you that prayer is one of our greatest weapons of warfare. And I don’t know if you notice, but we are seemingly in a war.
It’s interesting how you can think something means one thing and then have a completely different revelation about it shortly after. I had the awesome opportunity to hear from Dr. Dee Dee Freeman on Saturday, Jan. 30 at an event hosted by Heaven’s Gate ministry and it completely blew my mind. If you know anything about Dr. Dee Dee, you know that she is a bold woman of God and as some of you say, she was in the building snatching edges all around. She helped me realize that this is my year of bold faith and big prayers, but in more ways than one.
May of this year was probably one of the best months of my life so far. I experienced game-changing moments and I am just so optimistic for all there is to come in my life. Each day, though I woke up with a smile on my face and I also got the revelation about just how important it is to pray when you’re down and when you’re up.
Life is cyclical. There are ups and downs and believe me, when you’re up, the enemy is plotting and scheming on ways to bring you down. (John 10:10). Now for me I didn’t experience any particular downfall that made me realize that I needed to submerge myself in word, but really just a whisper from the Holy Spirit. See, the goal is to be as even as possible in life. In order to not be moved by what we see as the Bible instructs, we have to be diligent in taking the highs in stride, just like the lows.
