As an intercessor, I have learned through the years there is a cost to the call and an authority that only can be gained by going through some battles. I have been accused of being self-righteous and legalistic. I have been questioned about my credentials and debated on my protocols. I have warred with my mind and criticized my own journey. I have determined to maintain integrity and hope to be faithful. Through it all I have settled some things…
I pursue RIGHTEOUSNESS, not because of some set of rules, but because I want nothing to block my relationship with HIM.
I pursue HOLINESS, not to prove some higher aspiration, but because I long to be in His presence without any limitation.
I pursue right relationships with others, not to be favored or esteemed, but to be FREE AND CLEAR of any encumbrance.
I have found that the greatest FREEDOM I have is knowing there is nothing in me that the devil can use to shut me down, keep me bound, or stop my call.
Because of my ongoing relationship with Christ and my determination to be just like Him,
I don’t fear my enemies.
They fear the GOD inside of me.
And that makes it all worthwhile.
