Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
(Num. 34 - 35:8)
“The Locker Room”
“These are the ones the LORD commanded to divide the inheritance among the children of Israel in the land of Canaan.”
The Locker Room is on our menu for Breakfast this morning. For football players, the Locker Room is where lessons are learned and discussed, and Strategy is formed to win the fight with the opposing team. The Fight is Won in the Locker Room before the players even enter onto the field. They won the game ‘in their heart and mind,’ and now, they will win the game ‘on the field of battle! Ooooh Rah!
Israel is ready to cross the Jordan River and enter their Promised Land now. Before the fight with the Canaanite nations, God has them in the
Locker Room dividing up the ‘spoils’ of war BEFORE they meet their enemy on the field of combat! Can you feel that great Confidence these men must have felt in their Locker Room with God? They already won, they’re just going after the spoils now! Ooooh Rah!
This is the Warrior’s Confidence in every battle of life that we face: “we already have our inheritance in Heaven and Eternity,” BEFORE the fight begins. Step into the Locker Room with God this morning, where Peter lays out for us what our Commander Almighty God HAS ALREADY DONE For us:
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you,
who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials,
that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ,
whom having not seen you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory,
receiving the end of your faith—the salvation of your souls.” (1Pet. 1:3-9). Oooh Rah!
Oh Yeah, the Warrior is ready for the fight for Righteousness! With Grace through Faith we meet the challenges of life with the reality that we’ve already won the fight, in God’s Locker Room in our heart and soul -
“Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.” (Rom.8:37).
Our Commander and King ALREADY CONQUERED - So that we can conquer through Him; His Victory has become Our Victory! Ooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
