Fight Back!


As Neil and I were leaving the campsite to go purchase some supplies in Iuka, I got a stabbing pain in my stomach.  One of the reasons the Lord allows me to feel this type of pain so I will begin interceding for protection for a frontal attack.  The stronger the pain became the closer to town we got.  We had to hurry, as the store closed at 9:00.  I continued praying, not understanding what or why I was praying about.

However, as we were headed out of town, we saw numerous law enforcement vehicles lined up along the side of the road.  Neil quickly checked the news to see if he could find anything.  As it turned out, there was an armed standoff that began at approximately 4:00 a.m.  and it was 9:00 p.m. as we drove by.  After finding out what it was, I knew this was what the Lord was having me pray about.  Since Neil is in law enforcement, he prayed for the safety and mindset of the first responders and I prayed the person who had barricaded them self inside would peacefully surrender.  After praying, the pain in my stomach subsided.

The following morning, we quickly arose to see if the news had posted anything about the standoff.  Well, we discovered not more than 10 minutes after we prayed, the crises ended peacefully!  I am believing the Lord was just waiting on someone to intercede and release Kingdom solutions into the atmosphere and then He would send His angels to move and overcome the darkness, amen?

I am a daughter of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords! I am humbled that He calls me His own! I am learning to walk more boldly and confidently in who He has created me to be. My prayer is others will come to know Jesus as their Savior, identify with who they are in Him so they too can walk out the calling He’s places on their lives!
