Recently I was engaged in a heavy spiritual war. Historically, such wars would easily be handled by binding and loosing in the authority that God provides all believers. That said, this particular engagement was not responding to the normal warfare tactics that have served me well for many years. I soon realized I was in a spiritual conflict that was well above my pay grade to eradicate.
Because of this, I engaged in a fast-and-prayer season that lasted for months as I sought to determine what had engaged me so heavily. Finally, one early morning the Holy Spirit awakened me with a download of the spiritual situation I was experiencing. I am so thankful that when we call upon the Lord, He answers and reveals spiritual matters that are perplexing us (Jeremiah 33:3). After I wrote down each word I heard, I asked the logical question, “So, what do I do to turn this situation?” The answer followed, “Posture yourself in the Triumph that I Am.”
Once again, I hear the instruction regarding posture. However, this posturing was not physical but spiritual in nature. It was a clear directive to set my spirit and mindset in an attitude and unwavering faith of the triumph that Jesus IS! It speaks of strategic positioning much like a military tactic for the purpose of overtaking an enemy force. This was a word of God’s faith to me to rise above the conflict and be liberated from its intent to steal, kill, and destroy. The simple directive was to change my posture. —Larry Burden (Larry will be speaking at Kingdom Congress Mar.6 at 11:00am.)
