Do You Love Tea Parties?

Do You Love Tea Parties?

by Rebekah Beene

I love tea parties. I always have. I even have a photo my mother took of me at about age 4. You guessed it. I was having a tea party in my room! Tea parties are such a lovely things and they never cause trouble or point to anything but happiness. All my favorite things.

But this morning I’m thinking about Martha Washington and all the other women of historical action figures like her husband. And I’ll tell you something. They were mighty women! They were strong and their prayers routed demons. How do I know this? Because the men they loved went to war. And the women who prayed didn’t just hold tea parties while they were gone. Martha’s man was in the frigid waters of the Delaware River and his troops were in very bad straits. He planned three crossings but they only made one. Who was with Him? The Lord. Who was praying? The wife.

Oh beloved, I understand your plight. You know what kind of mess your loved one is in. You know it’s impossible. You are afraid. You want to just hold tea parties and have fun with the girls but it’s war. The fear you are experiencing isn’t your outcome. We have all been there. I am there now. We have a wonderful outcome but we haven’t crossed the Delaware yet.

But God says to me and to you: “I understand you’re afraid. Start praying anyway. This is your walk out of fear and into faith.” Pray? I’ve been praying. You and I have loved ones who are in battles we can only see with our eyes, but they are experiencing the battle in their souls. Whether it’s your spouse or your adult child or your friend, this war is not over till God posts the victory flag. But that’s his intention. Victory is always your outcome. Don’t let fear choose the reality – fear is a henchman of satan and satan is always lying and he has taught his troops to lie. We are going to choose the Word of the Lord and we will pray it and pray faith and stay on the front lines of our own battlefield of prayer. We aren’t relenting. We aren’t wasting time wringing our hands or asking to be relieved of our duties. Don’t worry if in the midst of the battle your prayers change. For beloved, every battle is a season of change for every soldier of the Cross. We are all soldiers whether we like it or not. And we are all overcomers whether we believe it or not.

God loves you and He’s for you. You are the most instrumental warrior in your battleground. Don’t stop praying, don’t let fear win and rejoice that you’ve been called, chosen and enlisted. Thank the Lord for His answers ahead of time and keep pushing into the enemy’s camp. And shout out with a voice of triumph as you walk in the Light of God’s overwhelming victory for you.

Romans 12:1 Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship.

I Thessalonians 5:17-18 be unceasing and persistent in prayer; in every situation [no matter what the circumstances] be thankful and continually give thanks to God; for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus.

I John 5:4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world– our faith.
