Daniel was able to advance and see God’s blessing in his life, even in a pagan culture because he had an upper room and went to that room three times a day. His upper room relationship with God made it possible for God to work on his behalf.
Even in the fact of persecution and rejection, he refused to pull back from his upper room; and because of that he continued to see great blessing.
We may be wondering why God isn’t moving or intervening on our behalf, and sometimes it’s because we have the door to our upper room closed. But like Daniel we’re in a spiritual war.
There are way too many Christians today wore out with the stuff of life, busy with their work and play and with their schedule, running their kids from one sport to another, thinking that sports will keep their children out of drugs and crime, not realizing that it’s not sports that will keep them out of world, it is a strong spiritual walk with Almighty God that will keep them out of the world.
So many have closed their eyes to what’s really happening.
We are in a war of spiritual strongholds, ideology, reasoning and philosophies and values. It’s a war of world view.
How do we fight that war?
That is what I am talking about in today’s podcast.
