“For the weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood], but they are mighty before God for the overthrow and destruction of strongholds, [Inasmuch as we] refute arguments and theories and reasonings and every proud and lofty thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God; and we lead every thought and purpose away captive into the obedience of Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One)” 2 Corinthians 10:4-5 ->me: Today I am taking a short departure from Revelation. For lunch I was blessed with meeting a hero in my life who graciously, humbly, and meekly is fighting cancer. Hit after hit comes his way but he stands tall in the trust he has in his Savior. I am absolutely blown away by his strength and character. I spent a considerable amount of time today praying for this man and this new phrase popped into my head and I have not been able to shake it. “God’s Purpose Executed Perfectly” – How do you pray for the healing of precious soul like this and at the same time sincerely embrace God’s will being done when that may mean the Lord taking him home earlier than we want? It is so hard….but that Perfectly Executed Purpose is exactly what I pray for and then follow that up with “Father, if your will and purposes are not circumvented by extending this man’s life then I pray fervently for that blessing to be sent down to show all involved your glory and power.” My prayer life was impacted today by the simple acceptance of God’s will in the toughest of circumstances.
