“And I turned to see the voice that was speaking with me. And having turned I saw seven golden lampstands; and in the middle of the lampstands one like a son of man, clothed in a robe reaching to the feet and girded across His breast with a golden girdle. And His head and His hair were white like white wool, like snow; and His eyes were like a flame of fire; and His feet were like burnished bronze, when it has been caused to glow in a furnace, and His voice was like the sound of many waters.” Revelation 1:12-15
This week, we are going to be writing about Accountability and Victory as a Kingdom Man. As you will see, your Victory is your choice. The Spirit of our Lord has much to say to the churches, and to you and me, in Revelation chapters 2 and 3. This is the "how to" part; and it’s your choice.
Accountability begins by choosing to listen to the right voice. Do you know who your are listening to? John gives us a clear picture of who he was listening to. There are many voices vying for our attention. These voices come through different channels; the media, our friends and family, online sources which may or may not be accurate however, these voices all shape our decision making. Reading my Bible is not enough! I must become intimate with Christ and then be about my Father’s business of building His Kingdom here on earth.
Intimacy with Jesus comes from spending time with Him! Each morning I spend that time with Him and many mornings even that time of intimacy comes under attack. I do know the voice of my enemy, and I know the voice of my Abba Father.
Daily Battle Order:
Stand up in front of a mirror and say, out loud,
I am a Kingdom Man with a Kingdom vision. I am commissioned by Christ.
I have begun to say that out loud to myself every morning before I get out of bed and then throughout the course of the day as well. It’s only been a few days of practicing this and yet, it’s making a difference because it establishes my position for the day! From this position, I can directly align with my Father and continue to pursue the true challenge - moving into abiding, being in communion with God- that intimacy is a journey!
