“I ACCEPT YOUR SURRENDER”
Finally saw the new Thor movie this weekend! (continue reading at your own risk if you haven’t seen it)
Oh my! I absolutely love the “David and Goliath” scene with Thor and that massive rock beast! LOL! This is the attitude God has been trying to birth in us (and all His people) toward the “goliaths” in our lives!!
What a powerful image ~ Thor looking so small as he stands face to face with a HUGE enemy – yet saying with immovable, unshakable, unbreakable, and unstoppable confidence, “I ACCEPT YOUR SURRENDER.”
When I saw what happened next, Jeremiah 23:29 immediately came to mind:
Is not My WORD like fire [that consumes all that cannot endure the test]? says the Lord, and LIKE A HAMMER THAT BREAKS IN PIECES THE ROCK [OF MOST STUBBORN RESISTANCE]?
(I couldn’t find one great clip on youtube with the scene. This one has most of it – with some annoying ads and then a glitch at the very end before his classic last line. You can either scroll past where it stops short or just wait and you can then hear the end, which diminishes the effect a bit)
God has been blowing our minds with the most recent series of messages He gave us for the healing/faith journey group last week. The imagery from this scene, representing the POWER of HIS WORD (and our PROFESSION of it) goes along well with it!!
We received another “catapult”-causing confirmation from the Lord last night – which included the phrase “PROCLAIM YOUR VICTORY NOW!” (hope that confirmation is making those of you in the healing/faith group catapult too!!)
David knew how to PROCLAIM HIS VICTORY IN ADVANCE; God wants us to learn to do the same:
“Then said David to the Philistine, You come to me with a sword, a spear, and a javelin, but I come to you IN THE NAME OF THE LORD OF HOSTS, the God of the ranks of Israel, Whom you have defied.This day the Lord will deliver you into my hand, and I will smite you and cut off your head. And I will give the corpses of the army of the Philistines this day to the birds of the air and the wild beasts of the earth, THAT ALL THE EARTH MAY KNOW THAT THERE IS A GOD IN ISRAEL.”
I Samuel 17:45-46 (see entire account here)
It’s time to let the enemy know we ACCEPT HIS SURRENDER!!!
