Today’s video post discusses how to defeat the first of three dragons which hold us back from becoming the heroes of our divine stories. Discover how to recognize and slay the sinister issue of misplaced authority, which traps us in a spiritual stronghold.
Ask yourself the following questions to determine if you have a dragon of misplaced authority holding your heroic potential hostage:
- What do I think about the most?
- What consumes my thoughts? What do I worry about? What shapes my attitudes? What are my perceptions and worldviews based upon?
- How do I spend my time?
- What defines me?
- What is the main thing I turn to when happy, sad, angry, worried, afraid, or stressed?
If you have a dragon of misplaced authority blocking your path to heroic purpose and fulfillment, resist the temptation to despair or allow the dragon to invite shame to oppress you even more. We have armor and divine authority to slay this dragon and those accompanying it. We also have a mighty King to deliver us with greater power than we can summon on our own.
You’re not alone facing the dragons. We’re in this with the King ahead of us and beside us. We’re also in this together, sister warriors. So let’s rise as sheroes and do this.
As we venture onward to slay our dragons and march in our divine purpose, we are called to pray for one another and strengthen one another.
But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called “Today,” so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness. – Hebrews 3:13
Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise. Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. – James 5:13-16
If you have any requests for prayer, you may message me on Facebook if you’d like to keep them private. But if you share them here or in the Beautiful Warrior Tribe group, you will access more sister warriors to support you in prayer. Of course, you can also share an “UNSPOKEN” request and God will know the nature of our prayer support.
I’m heading to Sassafras on Sutton in Black Mountain for a book signing today and will be at AACC later this week, so my posts are likely to be brief and targeted to the issues we’re addressing. But, I always look forward to hearing your feedback and supporting you in prayer, my friends.
