Run with the Spirit Wind

Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. We love Him because He first loved us. (1 John 4:19 NKJV)

How do we conquer fear?

Be like Wonder Woman.

Okay, let me explain:

This past weekend, I had a mini-vision during a home church gathering.

I saw Wonder Woman squatting down like a sprinter on the starting blocks. Then a dazzling white whirlwind enveloped her. She took off sprinting like the wind and kept accelerating until she ran through an iridescent sphere of glory. She stopped when she was on the other side of the sphere. Standing in a deep, lush green valley, she stared at a jagged rocky mountain several hundred feet ahead of her.

The tip of the mountain had the word FEAR written on it. Once she settled that she could conquer that mountain, she stooped down to grab a chunk of soil. She lifted the soil like lifting up a sewer lid. Then she looked down and saw people staring up at her from underneath the ground. She pulled one person out of the ground at a time until she lifted everyone out.

As these people stood in the valley, they were squinting as they got acclimated to the light. For they had been living in the dark all their lives. I could sense the joy of their liberation and wonderment seeing the beauty surrounding them.

So what was this vision was showing me? We are like Wonder Woman: born from God’s seed and empowered with his nature. So as we believers rest in his grace, the Holy Spirit empowers us, so we can accelerate to levels of glory we’ve never experienced before. These are levels in him. And as we reach a new realm of understanding who God is, we can conquer mountains that have stood in our way.

The fruit? We reveal his nature to the lost. They’re drawn to our light as we serve as witnesses of the Kingdom realm. A world the lost doesn’t dwell in and most are unaware it even exists.

For they’re trapped in spiritual death, surrounded in a world of darkness. They’re unable to see the glorious light and beauty of God’s kingdom. They don’t experience the power of his unconditional love, feel the soothing balm of his joy, and dwell in the warmth of his peace. Their world is dark, cold, and hopeless.

Yet, many believers think like the young Wonder Woman before she received a revelation of her true identity. They identify themselves as sinning humans, saved by grace. They can’t really overcome their sin, but their consolation is at least they have a relationship with God. And one day, they’ll live in heaven finally redeemed from their sinful nature.

No! If that’s what you believe, ask yourself: So all the horrific physical, emotional, and spiritual suffering Jesus endured on the cross as you, only purchased you a one-way ticket to heaven?

The truth: through his suffering, death, and resurrection, Jesus redeemed us from sin and death. We are no longer slaves to sin and fear while we dwell on this earth, but redeemed sons and daughters born from God’s own loins. We are born again with his spirit living on the inside and we’re empowered by the Holy Spirit. So like Jesus, sin and death can’t defeat us on this earth!

So, let’s be like Jesus (or in this vision, like Wonder Woman) serving as a weapon to deliver the lost to God and his kingdom!

How about you? What have you discovered about yourself as God’s son or daughter? Please share in Comments below. Thank you.
