Melissa—It is starting to make sense why this awakening is so intense. We have the opportunity to move from a substandard life to a premium life (see post on 6-21-22) if we will embrace this alarm and not press the snooze button! This moment really is an invitation to something incredible. This is an invitation to enter into and function from the fear of the Lord for the sake of the Kingdom and for His glory. I really like the sound of that. I really want to live that.
In spite of the angle of descent of morals and values, in spite of what the state of the union looks like, we stand on the brink of a destiny that our forefathers never imagined (Jer.33:3)—But it will require moving from being observers to acting, require shifting and transition: it’s the “violent” action of Matt.11:12 which means “intense exertion.” It is not violent in the sense of doing persons harm but in the sense of putting forth “intense exertion” in opposition to things that oppose God’s purpose. We must oppose darkness like opposing a rattlesnake trying to crawl up in our bed. We must do it for the King of Kings and for a generation. We are praying you discover daily that your intense exertion is gaining ground against darkness.
