“Do You Have a War Room?”
Many of us went to see the powerful movie “War Room” and left the theater inspired. But how many of us actually have a war room? Every one of us need to be prepared to handle the various wars of life. We have to learn to fight for our marriages, families, finances, good health and any other area that may be a challenge.
What is a war room?
A war room can be any room that allows you to pray and spend undisturbed time with God. It can be an entire room, closet or area of space where you can spend some quality time with God. If you don’t already have this place in your home, I encourage you to declare a war room this week. It is a good thing to have a designated spot and use it for regular time with God.
Where and Why should you have a war room?
Over the past 8 years my war room has been in my closet, before then, I have used the bathroom or any spot where I could spend time with God without distractions. The early morning is my favorite time with God. During this time, I have been able to take so many of my battles, concerns, issues and feelings to God in prayer. Not only have I taken my battles, I have also prayed for battles of my friends and family. It’s always beneficial to spend time with the Almighty God! Victory, power, wisdom, strength, insight and success come from spending time in the war room.
No matter what you may be facing right now, be encouraged to be persistent and consistent with going to your war room. Don’t wait until you have a crisis to enter your war room, make it a regular discipline.
Weapons for the War Room
One of the most powerful weapons to take in the war room is the (BIBLE) Word of God! Learning to pray scripture over your life, family or your situation is so powerful. God loves when we pray His Word. I also find it very helpful to use a journal, and write my prayers with scripture. As displayed in the movie, some bring pictures to pray over the person or issue of concern.
Maybe your life is wonderful right now and you don’t see the need for a war room. As the old folks would say, “keep living!”
“For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.”
Until next week . . .
