To live at a higher standard, through deep, intimate abiding with my Abba Father, my Lord and King, Jesus, and my intimate friend, the Holy Spirit, and to be extraordinarily sensitive and in tune with Their heartbeat for those They are laying on my heart to intercede for so that my intercession originates in the very Throne Room of God and is carried out through me to bring forth the very will of God into the lives of those I pray for.
Through complete and humble surrender, radical obedience, fasting of God's timing and choosing, and sensitive intercession, breathing the very heartbeat of God into the lives of those I pray for.
Recently, there arose a situation in which some people in the body of Christ selfishly hurt me. I asked for forgiveness in how I responded in my heart. I have forgiven and have been faced with the prospect of "what the enemy meant for harm, God is attempting to show me that He is using for good."
Instead of me depending on other people to "arise and fight FOR me," God is showing me that He wants me to "arise and fight" for myself. This is certainly harder and takes much more strength...strength I do NOT feel I have right now; but, our strength does not come from how much we "FEEL" we have.
Our strength comes from the LORD. "I lift up my eyes to the mountains-- where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth." (Psalm 121:1-2).
Yes, He wants ME to arise and fight for myself. There most certainly IS a time to have others fight for us, but sometimes we are allowed to be hurt and/or isolated so we can learn to lean more on the TRUE source of our strength rather than lean on others.
Arise, Warrior! Join me in forgiving those who have disappointed us...and join me in the FIGHT in the strength of THE LORD!
As we arise as warriors, the enemy will not like that and he may try to come against us with vicious attacks. But we MUST always remember that "greater is HE who is in us than he that is in the world!" (see 1 John 4:4) Those attacks may be difficult...but, take heart...Jesus, The Ultimate Warrior, has defeated the enemy (see 1 John 3:8) and overcome the world (see John 16:33) ...and through HIM, we can do ALL things (see Philippians 4:13)!!! So...we CONTINUE to arise!!!!
Arise, Princess Warrior, and "stir up (rekindle the embers of, fan the flame of, and keep burning) the [gracious] gift of God, [the inner fire] that is in you..." (2 Timothy 1:6 AMP)
A few days ago, after being so very sick for so very long, I wrote the following...(I know it is NOT profound or long, but it is ALL I could manage to type out on my iPod while so very sick in bed.)

Fight for your princess!
She is weary.
She is being attacked.
Fight for and rescue her!
