We are in a great spiritual conflict for our nation, as well as in our personal lives. When the battle intensifies, what should we do? Pray harder? Fast longer? While intensity may need to increase, and more fasting becomes required, one thing is for sure: we must learn to rest in God. The battle against the enemy in Exodus 17 wasn't won until Moses kept his hands up. We all know that part, but what else did he do? He sat down! True authority can only flow when you recognize that you are seated in the highest heaven in Christ.
We are not looking up at our enemy. We are looking down on our enemy. And we are doing so from a seated position; a position of rest and victory. So be encouraged and cultivate the art of resting in Him.
Scripture: Exodus 17:12-13 "But Moses’ hands became heavy; so they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat on it. And Aaron and Hur supported his hands, one on one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun. So Joshua defeated Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword."
Ephesians 2:6 "And raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,"
Prayer: Lord, we thank You that You love our nation. Continue to teach us how to pray more effectively for our nation and in all areas. We ask that You teach us how to rest in You. Teach us how to use our authority for Your intended purpose for our nation and our personal lives. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
