Nor sworn deceitfully. 5 He shall receive blessing from the Lord, And righteousness from the God of his salvation. 6 This is Jacob, the generation of those who seek Him, Who seek Your face.

The last week has been crazy and full of crazy revival fire being poured out upon us and upon Norway!!! Circuit Riders in Grimerud, Norway was awesomely epic. We met so many amazing people and told our story multiple times, at least 10 times, every single day. It seems that our obedience is an encouragement all over the world. We made some great contacts and we will see if God opens any doors with the people we met here. I also got to see some old friends from my time in Hawaii. It was truly a God filled week!!!
During worship, and the personal time I had with The Lord, I was meditating on the word He had given me for Norway. You can check out the previous word In the post titled “News from Norway”. While I was thinking about this, He gave me a phrase “Run to the Battle!!!” The Christians in Norway, and everywhere else around the world for that matter, cannot sit back and let the enemy do whatever he wants. We are called to run to where the battle is and attack the enemy so that he is unable to take any more ground. On top of that, we are supposed to push him back and cast him out of the places that are rightfully the Lords.
God blesses us when we run to the battle with miraculous victory! He will not let us fall or allow us to be overcome when we stand and fight for Him!!! Joshua 10:1-15 tells us of a time when Joshua led the people to run to a battle. It says that they traveled all night to get to where their allies were being attacked before it was too late. They arrived and The Lord put the enemy into confusion and then sent a hailstorm and killed more people with hail than they did with the sword. Then, God made the sun stand still in the heavens so that they could defeat the entire army before they escaped. God miraculously defeated a 5 army combined force because Joshua was willing to run to a battle that he probably did not really want to get involved with (See Joshua 9).
In our own lives, we must not sit back and watch as the enemy takes ground or destroys our allies. We cannot sit back and do nothing while the enemy gains power around us and takes away our strength. The minute that we quit fighting or running to where the battle is, that is when we get overrun. It reminds me of Lord of the Rings where they were fighting to hold the wall. The enemy was ever attacking and changing tactics and coming from different sides. The heroes were protected inside the wall as long as they ran to where the enemy was attacking and fought them off. When they were unable to do so, the wall fell!
Be strong and full of courage because The Lord fights our battles for us! He gives us the strength to run and the wisdom to know where to run and it is our duty to run to the battle and destroy the works of the enemy!!! When you fight with The Lord, even against impossible odds, He will bring about an awesome victory because of who He is!!!

After a brief visit to Harpenden to visit my sister, we made our way to Norway where God has us ministering for about a month. On our flight to Oslo, I began to pray and ask The Lord what He was saying about Norway. As God does, He responded by first giving me a picture.
The picture from The Lord was of a black line going around the border of the country. When the black line had completely encircled Norway, it began to grow thicker and began to take over the country from the inside out. As I was praying to The Lord about what this meant, I felt him speaking to me something that applies to every single child of His.
Often, when an enemy has surrounded, the military force will dig in and wait for the enemy to come to them. However, this is not what the Men and Women of God must do. When the enemy is surrounding our country and land, we must not sit and wait and do nothing. In America, we have done nothing for far too long and now things are worse than ever. We must be on the offensive and attack every place where the enemy would try to come in and take us out. God has placed us where we are so that His mighty warriors would arise and stand and fight against all odds for the souls and for the nations that are His! Hebrews 10:39 says it best “We are not of those who shrink back in fear, but we are of those who believe to the salvation of the soul”!!!
I want to encourage you, just as I have been told to encourage the people here in Norway, now is the time to stand up! We cannot be silent any longer and allow the enemy to do as he pleases while we sit and pray that things don’t get any worse. I have news for you, things are going to get worse until you stand up and fight for what God has given you. God has given us the Truth not so we can guard it and keep it to ourselves, but we are to use it to combat the enemy and bring freedom to the people he is trying to enslave.
Now is the time to Stand!!! Now is the time to Fight!!! Now is the time to become the Men and Women of God that He has created you to be!!!
