Thanksgiving is over, what now?
Traditionally we celebrate Thanksgiving and we take the time to be thankful for the things that we have already received and the things that God has done in our lives.
There are two conditions related to what we have and are experiencing, as to why we are thankful.
#1 we have received our miracle and or our need has been met.
#2 we have not received what we are looking for, but are still faithful In believing and trusting God will meet our need
It’s very easy to praise and be thankful for #1, but #2 requires more effort and even sometimes others to link together with us to help us in our effort until our breakthrough comes.
10. So Joshua did as Moses said to him, and fought with Amalek. And Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill.
11. And so it was, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed; and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed.
12. 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.
13. So Joshua defeated Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword.
Moses told Joshua to pick some men, to fight the battle in the natural.
Joshua fought the battle on a natural plain, but the victory was won through the supernatural power of prayer and praise.
Moses arms got tired, you know sometimes the praising part is hard to do. Sometimes you’ve exhausted yourself from way too much, meaningless self effort. And what should have been the focus from the start, which is our praise and thanksgivings. Becomes to the accusers delight what seems too little and too late in the fight for the miracles and needs we are seeking God for!
Thankfulness and praise to the One and only One who can turn our situation upside down and completely around, is never too little or too late! Amen!
Lord Help us keep our hands lifted high, when doubt and unbelief want to rear their ugly head in our situation! Help us also to hold up the hands of our brothers and sisters, as they are going through their situations and they ask us to join our faith to their faith in the fight!
For that’s when the battle will be won, when the prayer and the praise doesn’t stop! Real prayer and real praise, requires tenacity and takes commitment, until the answer comes, you have to be winning to push through the crowd until you touch the hem of the masters garment.
That's why everybody always wants a true prayer warrior praying for them
because they know that they will pray and touch the throne room of God and they won't stop until victory is won and they will continue to praise God and never stop, even after the victory is won!
King David was known to be a man after gods own heart. If there would be anyone you would want to pray for you, it seems that David would be easily in the top five of all candidates.
Was David perfect, the Bible tells us like all of us, he certainly had his moments. The Bible also tells us, David loved and worshipped God with all he had and believed God would help him accomplish the impossible more than once.
2 Samuel 6 NKJ
Again David gathered all the choice men of Israel, thirty thousand. 2 And David arose and went with all the people who were with him from [a]Baale Judah to bring up from there the ark of God, whose name is called [b]by the Name, the Lord of Hosts, who dwells between the cherubim. 3 So they set the ark of God on a new cart, and brought it out of the house of Abinadab, which was on the hill; and Uzzah and Ahio, the sons of Abinadab, drove the new [c]cart. 4 And they brought it out of the house of Abinadab, which was on the hill, accompanying the ark of God; and Ahio went before the ark. 5 Then David and all the house of Israel played music before the Lord on all kinds of instruments of fir wood, on harps, on stringed instruments, on tambourines, on sistrums, and on cymbals.
(Life is good for David, everything is going according to plan. It’s a mountain top experience not just for David, but for everyone as well!
Life is good when you’re up on the mountain and everything is going right!
Everybody’s on the same page with you, except for the accuser.
