I thank the Lord for you DIVAs! My heart is tender towards you. DIVA’s, I am set afire! I pray the Lord shall set us all afire! Lord let it be so. In this season I believe the enemy has in mind an attack on marriages. As I speak to people, this is a common area of prayer request. What the Lord means for good Satan means for evil! It is time DIVAs to fight! Fight for your marriage, fight for your neighbor’s marriage, fight for your friend’s marriage, fight for a family member’s marriage, fight for the marriage of someone you do not even know! Pray DIVAs!! Do you have a heart for prayer? Pray! Do you have the gift of intercession? Pray! Have you felt lacking in your motivation for prayer? Ask the Lord to put the burden on your heart! We are to pray in all things and without ceasing. Pray as if the Lord were standing right in front of you and you were pleading with Him for love to return to marriages. What would you say?
I read an interesting quote from Matthew Henry. “Whenever God is about to do something, He first sets His people to prayer.” If God is about to do something, plan for the enemy to start swinging his wrecking ball. We are in spiritual warfare! I love accounts in the Old Testament regarding God’s armies as they prepared for battle. Praise was on their lips! At times they would “position” themselves and “see the salvation of God.” Other times they would sing praise as they marched out for battle. We are told to “put on” God’s armor. This armor is purposed for assault. Our battle is not against flesh and blood but against spiritual forces of darkness. Putting on God’s armor is readying us to fight the spiritual fight – nothing else. Our weapons are prayer and the Word. We are warriors in the army of the living God! How does a warrior fling an arrow? Is it shot into the air hoping to meet the target? No. The warrior steadies herself, takes aim, and shoots with a purpose. That is how we are to pray. Throw out your weariness, throw out the negative thinking, throw out your questions of “why?”. Pray for exactly what you desire to see accomplished. Warriors have an unmistakable look about them. They mean to win. Do you? Satan, our enemy, is stealthly cloaked as a liar, a thief, and a murderer. He would have you give up because it seems impossible (with God all things are possible), because it takes so long (God is not bound by time), because you do not know what to pray (with the Spirit, He adds the punch), because you are tired (ask God to rejuvenate you for His purposes and expect it). Take your stand DIVA! God is about to do something. Put on the armor, speak the Word, praise God, rebuke the enemy, position yourself, and see! Be quick! The enemy is approaching. He has a plan and he calculates. Do not fear for God says, “I am with you.” Let us unite DIVAs and we shall spiritually line up together in battle formation. Are you ready? It’s time.
