We Raise Our White Flag, The War Is Over, Love Has Come!

Something BIG happened for me in last nights prayer meeting, even bigger than I first realized. I went home feeling like I was standing on top of a very tall mountain!

We emphasized God’s love for us, His kindness and favor fighting in us and for us… the victory that we HAVE.

Linda White quoted from Psalm 85

Lord, you poured out blessings on your land!
You restored the fortunes of Israel.
You forgave the guilt of your people—
yes, you covered all their sins. Interlude
You held back your fury.
You kept back your blazing anger.

Unfailing love and truth have met together.
Righteousness and peace have kissed!
Truth springs up from the earth,
and righteousness smiles down from heaven.
Yes, the Lord pours down his blessings.
Our land will yield its bountiful harvest.

If you had been there, you might have said that we were out of balance. How could God impress us with so many positive thoughts in one hour? Surely, He was unhappy about something. But, we kept speaking what we felt in our hearts and minds… and we prayed with SO MUCH HOPE and FAITH and HAPPINESS!

I woke this morning, and the victory was still in my heart.

All day, I’ve had a profound sense of expectation… like something VERY BIG is getting ready to happen in my personal life and ministry. Like every prophecy spoken over my life is WAKING from a COMA to BLESS ME NOW!

This afternoon in my office… I posted the following Facebook status update:

Sudden peace and happiness landed on me, I teared up at my office desk. Out of nowhere, an awareness of God’s love too wonderful for words.

For the past hour, I’ve been playing this song on YouTube over and over… it’s the ANTHEM of this moment!

White Flags – Chris Tomlin

The battle rages on… a storm in tempest roar… we cannot when this fight… inside our rebel hearts… we’re laying down our weapons now

We raise our white flags… we surrender… all to you… all for you… we raise our white flag… the war is over… love has come… your love has won

Here on this holy ground… you made a way for peace… laying your body down… you took our rightful place… this freedom song is marching on

We lift the cross… lift it high… lift it high (x8)

May this same victory come to you right now… and stay with you for a very long time. The war is over, love has come, His love has come!

Dear God, I am praying for you right now. Hope you feel the difference.

Dream Big,

Chuck

  1. It is after a long day, that I read this. What’s more intriguing is the fact that I had an uncommon, heartfelt desire to be transparent in the midst of my going through. At first, uncertainty and questions arose as to whether it was best to be this way on FB, but then friends that I hadn’t heard from in a long time responded. Truly, it became a humbling experience when an old friend posted confidently and honestly, “I need prayer”. Without a doubt, my perspective of my day changed with that as I remembered that a friend of ours rededicated his life last Sunday evening. Once again, what appeared to be a rocky day medically, ended up being the day that God used me even in my weariness to bless someone else. Without a doubt, God’s way of handling something is sometimes unpredictable, but He is definitely reliable.

  2. Wow what a week it was. So glad i raised my white flag and surrender. Have never felt this free in a long time and happier. Can’t wait for God to start using me. Excited about what he is going to do. Have been telling people at work how god set me free, and some of parents have even noticed something different. They say i am smile more. I tell them that god set me free.

  3. Hey Chuck! What a week it has been! The weather has become glorious and summer is here……praise the Lord that we can wake up at 5:30am to bright sunlight because we know He has given us another day……and He has won the victory!

    Hope you’re well

  4. I saw your the title of this post on facebook several days ago and am just now getting here to read it. However, the title has been rolling around in mind the last few days and it just makes me feel so free! To know that we can stop fighting (especially each other) and live in the victory we have already been given, and let His love flow through us to all those who so desperately need it, is a gift beyond measure.

    • Rose… your comment sets me on fire this morning. I can feel your passion spilling onto the page… and I’m praying for you today… blessings!
