Kim Potter: "As the Battle Heats Up, Don't Forget Who You Are"

Kim Potter
Nov 10, 2020

From the Desk of Steve Shultz:

Steve ShultzWhile God always take us from glory to glory (2 Corinthians 3:18), we also know He continually teaches us to live "BY FAITH FROM FIRST TO LAST" (Romans 1:17). So we know and understand that our Lord continually stretches our faith!

But God is also the GREAT ENCOURAGER. He knows that even as HE stretches our faith, eventually we become EXTREMELY weary to the point of exhaustion.

Then He breaks through with encouragement to helps us keep going. Today He is saying, "YOU ARE MY MIGHTY EAGLES!!" (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

Recently, God interrupted my sleep as He spoke four words to my heart: "My people are weary."

A couple hours later, I received a confirmation of that word in an email from a friend. It said, "People are weary, we have to help them."

It's true. You can almost feel the weariness across our nation. We have been in a spiritual battle and it has been a heavy one. The issues in our nation, which we have passionately been opposed in both prayer and action, have not been easy. This has gone on for many months. No wonder we feel weary.

Intercessors across the nations have fought a battle this year unlike anything we could have ever imagined. We all recognize the stakes are high, and although we are weary, we simply can't quit now.

"He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall, but those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint." (Isaiah 40:29-31)

The Passion Translation says it like this:

"He empowers the feeble and infuses the powerless with increasing strength. Even young people faint and get exhausted; athletic ones may stumble and fall. But those who wait for Yahweh's grace will experience divine strength. They will rise up on soaring wings and fly like eagles, run their race without growing weary, and walk through life without giving up."

I meditated on those Scriptures as I went to bed last Friday night. Hours later, I woke myself up chanting a cheer from my high school years. It was something I had not thought about for decades:

We are the eagles
The mighty, mighty eagles!
Everywhere we go
People wanna know
Who we are
So we tell them
We are the eagles
The mighty, mighty eagles!

As I thought about the significance of these words, I remembered when we used that particular cheer. It was the one we pulled out toward the end of the football game, when all the players were beyond weary. It was when we were close to victory, yet we needed one more score to win the game. It came at the moment our players felt they had nothing left. (Photo via Pxfuel)

I knew when I awoke, loudly declaring this cheer, that it was God providing a strategy to overcome the weariness we all feel—when it seems there is nothing left.

We are the eagles
The mighty, mighty eagles!
Everywhere we go
People wanna know
Who we are
So we tell them
We are the eagles
The mighty, mighty eagles!

Who We Are

1. We must remember who we are in Christ!

Here are a few Scriptures to remind us:

"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." (Philippians 4:13)

"But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God's special possession, that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His wonderful light." (1 Peter 2:9)

"Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us."(Romans 8:37)

We are more than conquerors in Christ, we are partakers with Him. The Bible says in Hebrews 3:14, "For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end."

It is vital, especially now, in this late hour, that we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the very end. (Photo via Pxhere)

2. We must declare it and remind the enemy of who we are.

Declare means "to make known formally or officially, to reveal or make manifest."

I believe Romans 8:18-21 in the Passion Translation describes where we are in this hour:

"I am convinced that any suffering we endure is less than nothing compared to the magnitude of glory that is about to be unveiled within us. The entire universe is standing on tiptoe, yearning to see the unveiling of God's glorious sons and daughters! For against its will the universe itself has had to endure the empty futility resulting from the consequences of human sin. But now, with eager expectation, all creation longs for freedom from its slavery to decay and to experience with us the wonderful freedom coming to God's children."

This is the freedom for which we fight.

One More Big Push!

I know we are weary and the battle seems to be growing more fierce. However, it is the end of the game and the reward is in sight. We cannot quit now.

I compare this to a woman in labor. She has carried her baby for nine months, and now it's time for delivery. Perhaps delivery has been difficult, yet she must continue to push. At one point the doctor says, "I see the head; one more big push and we are there." That is where I feel we more big push and we are there!

Like Peter, we have toiled through the darkness of the night, yet God is telling us, "Launch out into the deep one more time and bring in the haul."

Take a deep breath, intercessors. You have it in you for one more big push. It is within you to bring in the haul. YOU are an eagle, a mighty, mighty eagle. Let us not forget who we are.
