Red Alert, Red Alert!

I’m a fan of Star Trek, anytime there was a threat to the Enterprise the captain would announce a red alert and say “shields up!”

Today I’m announcing a red alert and calling for the shields to be raised. Every once in a while I get a warning from the Lord. Today is one of those days. I can sense that there is a threat, a serious threat to our enterprise. These are the areas being targeted and the weapons he’s using.

Relationships – especially marriages & friendships; false accusations and unreasonable suspicions seem to be the enemy’s weapons of choice.

Physical Illness – fatigue and pain creating a distraction from what God is doing, from what the enemy is doing and from what we have been called to do.

Confusion & Lies – concerning those you labor with both on the job and in ministry.

Temptation to Run, Quit or Hide – There is an almost overwhelming desire to withdraw from family & friends and go into hiding.

To be forewarned is to be forearmed. Please take this warning seriously. Here are some practical suggestions…

Repentance – keep short accounts with God & man. Specifically repent of any judgments you made against others.

Forgiveness – forgive those who have falsely judged you or made accusations against you.

Pray for Protection – for yourself and your family & our President

Focus – Determine to look past your circumstances and fix your eyes on Jesus

Draw near to one another - isolation is dangerous at this time.

I believe that we are under attack because we are doing what the Lord has called us to do. Stand firm my friends, stand firm.

Shields Up!
Battle Stations!
