The Lord has been speaking to my heart about how to posture ourselves as a people of God in these times. The news media completes with one another over who can carry the story to create the most response. It is said that bad news sells better than good. We are seeing so much bad news lately that we can barely breathe between the soundbites. In times of interceding for our country, I could feel the passion reaching a tipping point. After a period of warring for our country, I heard the Lord say “to soar.” That is a whole new perspective of prayer. Instead of slugging it out in the dirt, we pray from the heavenly places and praise is a high form of prayer. Eagles soar above the storm and it is effortless. They fly using the storm currents to propel themselves. Not only that, eagles can see a rabbit from 2 miles away. They can see a field mouse from 650 feet up. Their vision is 5 times as great as man’s. We want to be tuned into what God is saying and pray accordingly. We want to see the world through His eyes and listen as He leads His mighty army forward.
Isaiah 40:31 But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.
The key to having our strength renewed is this; spend time with the Lord. Do not give up your quiet time and do not give up your word time. Stay tuned in. That means you stay on the frequency of God’s kingdom, not the world’s. We cannot allow ourselves to stay tuned in to the bad news media. Our hearts need guarded. Proverbs 4:23 keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life. Our hearts need protected so they do not become hardened and desensitized to sin and compromise. This is a crucial season for our personal relationship with the Lord to be strong. Our intimacy with Him protects our heart and enables us to love people as Christ has loved us. This is the second greatest commandment. As we have our communion time with the Lord, His love will be strong in our hearts and then we can carry His love to the lost and hurting. Stay tuned in to the frequency of heaven. Stay on the love channel and protect your heart! Let not the storms of life drag you down, but may you fly on their current taking you higher than ever before!
