Embracing Conflict

What do you think of when you think of war? I think of armed conflict, like I think many of you do. We see so much in the news about conflicts around the world and the devastation of things and people who are in the way. 

Most of us don't thrive on conflict. If you remember the personality traits tied to colors, you would need to be a HIGH RED to really enjoy conflict. So, while many of us don't like conflict and confrontation, it is a necessary part of life if we are going to win the SPIRITUAL battle for the areas and targets we have been assigned. Contending through prayer for those things assigned to us is of primary importance. 

Fighting to hold the ground we gain, as we advance to overturn the enemy in new areas, makes the going harder but still so worth it!! That's why it takes all of US! When we come together in unity with the Holy Spirit, we continue to pound the targets with prayer and intercession, (using all the various divisions of God's military) and we hanging on the the victories as we go, THEN we become the most formidable force on the earth. As we follow the Captain of the Lord of Hosts into the battle, the ground shakes as we come!
