GODLY AGGRESSION, “WORTH CONSIDERING” (Across my desk yesterday.)
“…the kingdom of heaven has suffered violence, and the violent take it by force.” Matt. 11:12
God Wants You To Go For It!
It’s time to be aggressive and energetic when it comes to letting go of the past and pressing forward to the abundant life God has in store. You can’t sit around in self-pity and think about what you lost, who hurt you, and how unfair it was. It’s time to develop a warrior mentality and boldly go after your victory! A warrior doesn’t complain about opposition; a warrior loves a good fight. It’s time to proactively pursue the happiness, health, and peace that is promised in God’s Word. God told Joshua to cross over the Jordan and go in and possess the land. Notice that the word “possess” implies action. It means to drive out the previous tenants. It’s time to quit dwelling on past mistakes and failures and determine to never look back! As you set your focus on the Word of God and His promises, you’ll discover victory rising in every area of your life—you’ll discover the champion in you!
A Prayer for Today
“God, I want to live the victorious life you intended for me. I know I am not perfect, but help me to focus on the future, not my past mistakes, and grant me the courage to pursue the happiness, health, and peace that you promised for me. In Jesus’ name – Amen.”
Jesus cleansing of the Temple was rather aggressive, but without sin. His frustration with the faith level of HIS disciples at times was evident but without sin. His comments to the religious leaders in John 8 were very aggressive. Sometimes demonic deliverance can also be very aggressive. So it would seem that putting on the armor of God, Eph.6:16, with sword and shield would seem a lot more aggressive than just being placid and defensive. We are even instructed to reprove, rebuke and exhort with all long suffering and doctrine. 2 Tim2:15, 4:2, Titus 2:15, Rev.12:11.
But the above scripture of Matt. 11:12 would seem to also include several spiritual positions. !. To be in the Spirit and stripped down for battle. 2. Not be living in or justifying sin, pride or rebellion. 3. Being guided by the Holy Spirit to do so. Some times the enemy must be stopped with an all out 100%, go for broke, aggressive attack to get the victory. Just make sure it is the real enemy and not a person for whom Christ died to save. In the Great Tribulation the profound WRATH of GOD will be demonstrated due to the rejection of Christ Jesus as the Lamb of GOD for the sins of the world. Which will end with a massive steel junk pile and rivers of blood, Armageddon. Today we are encouraged to come into HIS KINGDOM by Love and Grace and forgiveness. But Tomorrow HIS judgment will be the opposite and extremely severe.
