1 Samuel 7:3-10

God brings the best out of a mess. Anytime God is about to straighten things out in your life, you’ve got to get ready for “The Great Break Down.” The Lord is trying to break a culture. Cultures don’t break easily. They become embedded in the fabric of life. It’s not enough to bring something good into something bad without first removing what is bad. Battles will break down culture. Battles will make you change. God knows how to make you say, “Yes.” The enemy might be afraid when you shout, but that doesn’t mean he won’t attack you. God is going to bring new life out of a dead place. If you go back to serving Him the way you used to, He can bring you out of anything. The Great Beat Down is a humbling experience. It’ll make you pour out like water. When the right thing dies, you’ll stop trying to be the teacher. You’ll become the student. The Great Break Down always comes before The Great Turn Around. You can’t have all faith and no works. That is what has weakened us: faith with no action. However, works without prayer won’t get you there either. Whatever the enemy stole from you, God’s about to turn it around. You’ve been asking God to go to battle with you, but He’s going BEFORE you. The battle is not yours. It’s the Lord’s. Whatever has been beating you, when you humble yourself, you’ll start to beat it in The Great Showdown. God wants you to have a New Beginning.
