Pulling from Inward

Are you looking from resources on the outside of you OR are you drawing from the resources inside of you?
1 Corinthians 3:16  says this,  Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst?”
Do you not know that the spirit of God is within in, if you are a believer?
Do you personally feel like your world is crumbling? Are you facing a trial, problem, fighting with someone? Do you feel under attack?  The first thing we often do when these things happen is look outward. We look for recourse in the world to start solving our problems or to guide us. However, we may need to draw from the source within you, to get the wisdom we need to deal with the situation.
Our literal need we have is seeking God for wisdom to handle the situations, not simply solving the issue. He has the wisdom to lead us to a solution!!  Our inward resource is much more powerful than anything this world can offer us.
Psalm 46:4-6 says, “ There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells. God is in the midst of her, she will not be moved; God will help her at break of day. Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall; he lifts his voice, the earth melts.”
God is in the midst of her/ him/ YOU!
The Lord of hosts is WITH US!! He is there to guide us!
We will not be moved. When God is literally in the midst of us, we do not have to be moved! It is our choice to be moved, to be stressed, to allow the things of this world control us.
We face battles of our own every day, and we look for outward resources and sometimes God just wants us to awaken the spirit inside of us, and NOT BE MOVED!
Lets start looking inward FIRST when we face battles and see where He directs us! We must rely on the word of God, and when things look crazy, we do not need to be moved!

The Power of Position

Fighting the battle, is it ours? 
Far to often we look at battles and think it is our responsibility to fight it. We give it ALL we have and hope for the best, most of the time failing, or barely coming out victorious. 
There is a reason for this, the battle is NOT ours, its Gods!!  
God does not want us to fight the battles, He wants us, by faith, to position ourselves for battle but then allow Him to come in. 
Gideon and the hundred men with him reached the edge of the camp at the beginning of the middle watch, just after they had changed the guard. They blew their trumpets and broke the jars that were in their hands. The three companies blew the trumpets and smashed the jars. Grasping the torches in their left hands and holding in their right hands the trumpets they were to blow, they shouted, “A sword for the Lord and for Gideon!” While each man held his position around the camp, all the Midianites ran, crying out as they fled. When the three hundred trumpets sounded, the Lord caused the men throughout the camp to turn on each other with their swords. The army fled to Beth Shittah toward Zererah as far as the border of Abel Meholah near Tabbath. “ – Judges 7:19-22 
The nation of Israel was afraid of death. The army they were about to face was much larger than them. But as long as they followed God, this would not happen! 
Verse 21 tells us “While each man held his position around the camp, all the Midianites ran, crying out as they fled. When the three hundred trumpets sounded, the Lord caused the men throughout the camp to turn on each other with their swords.” 
All they had to do was blow the triumphs and the army fled. 
God asked them to sacrifice their lives, their comfort, and to position themselves in a place where He could win the victory for them! 
 A lot of the time God does not want us to engage in the battle either. He wants us to position ourselves, then watch and see what He can do. 
What He is asking you to step out in today? What battle are you facing that God wants you to step out of your comfort and position yourself for? 
Do it, and see Him win the victory!
