Those that battle with boredom are called entertainers, and their reward is the quick passage of time.
Those who battle with causes are called activists, and their reward is a measure of justice on earth, here and now.
Those who do battle with spirits and principalities, partnering with the God of heaven for the good of man and magnification of the one thing Holy...those kind are called intercessors, and their ultimate reward is the fullness of God...Heaven coming to earth and bringing justice down with it for eternity.
Ps 68:24, 25 & 28
Your procession has come into view, O God, the procession of my God and King into the sanctuary. In front are the singers, after them the musicians; with them are the maidens playing tambourines. Summon your power, O God. Show us your strength, as you have done before...
It's fascinating to me that the ultimate procession of the King of Glory is not made up of heavily armed guards, but rather singers, musicians and dancers. What other warring clan goes forward this way? Surely He knows how to do battle better than we do.
And that's what's on my brain right now. 10:25 AM, plus or minus a few seconds.
