My wife said we needed a date night last Saturday – so we went to dinner and a show at the Loveland outlet mall. The movie was “War Room” – it is a spiritual based movie and it is a movie you need to go see. Guys take your wife to this movie, you will not regret it. I will try not to write too much about the Movie so that it will not ruin it for you when you go.
The main character Miss Clara has allot of Wisdom that she shares during this movie and one of the points that hit home for me was. We seem to be in all these Battles that we are trying to win alone – As Miss Clara would say:
- “We fight for power. We fight for riches. We fight for rights. We fight for freedom,” she says. “There always seems to be something to fight about.”
“Very few of us know how to fight the right way.”
.” If we hope to thwart Satan’s schemes, to counter his cunning strategies to divide us, we’ll need a beefy battle strategy. A strategy that can come from only one place: time spent asking for God’s guidance in our prayer closet.”
Miss Clara’s “War Room” was a prayer closet – it is where she fought her Battles. She stated that we need the help of Jesus to fight our Battles for us and we need to get out of his way.
I have been fighting one of those battles that I cannot win and it is one that can only be won by Jesus. My wife reminded me that even the Archangel Michael could not fight Satan on his own: Jude 1:9 >But Michael the archangel, when he disputed with the devil and argued about the body of Moses, did not dare pronounce against him a railing judgment, but said, “The Lord rebuke you!”
I must do the same – I must fight my Battles with the Help of Jesus and this must come through my own “War Room” and I need to stay out of His way.
At the end of the movie Miss Clara gives this mighty Prayer and it was based on the verse: 2 Chronicles 7:14 > if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
Her prayer was a Battle cry for us to step up and do what is required to win the Battle and that is to turn to Jesus…
You will have to watch the movie – It is the first time that I heard applause during a movie – it happened about 3 times.
So what Battles are you fighting?
Are you turning them over to Jesus?
Are you getting out of his way?
Do you have a “War Room”?
