War Room. The Movie. And in my opinion a movie to be seen! Again and again.
I tear up every time I even watch the trailer. I know DADDY GOD is speaking here.
Individual War Rooms. Again in my opinion every Christian, every obedient Christian has one. Perhaps not in a physical closet but every obedient Christian withdraws to an alone place with GOD daily, often moment by moment. Some come away to back porches, decks, walking trails, cars, (trucks and minivans too), kitchen sinks; any physical place where a soul can be still and quiet before GOD.
However, after the movie War Room I am pondering a specific set aside physical place is more necessary that I had previously allowed myself to believe. Generally Christians have a specific, sanctified place to gather to worship once, twice, even three times a week. It’s called ‘church’. And generally not a whole lot else goes on in these places – just a gathering of people together to sing, praise, pray and hear the preaching of the Bible.
I have a makeshift office. It’s in the GRAND GIRLS bedroom. And I spend time there with the LORD. I prayer journal. I write – such as this very piece I am typing right now. I read. I study for Sunday School. But because this room houses all this activity it often gets WAY cluttered and when it does, I’m just being honest here, it frustrates me and not much praying gets done until the clutter is reigned in. Since the movie I see the need to have a place dedicated to wage war in prayer. A place to where I can immediately retreat, no clutter to clear first, no distractions. I want that. I am weak. I NEED it. Not sure where or how long it will take to achieve it – I’m praying about it. 🙂
31 There were so many people coming and going that they couldn’t even take time to eat, so he said to them, “Come with me by yourselves to a place where we can be alone, and you can get some rest.” [source]
Oh what beautiful words! Oh what a blessed thought! Yeshua HaMashiach, JESUS take me away!
