I walked in the door last night to the gleeful welcome of my 15 year old son.
He'd received yet 𝘢𝘯𝘰𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘳 package from yet 𝘢𝘯𝘰𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘳 national embassy ...
Flags were flying from the upstairs railing; pins and posters of flags were strewn across the desktop.
𝘈 𝘭𝘢𝘮𝘱 𝘪𝘭𝘭𝘶𝘮𝘪𝘯𝘢𝘵𝘦𝘥 𝘪𝘯𝘧𝘰𝘳𝘮𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘩𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘸𝘳𝘪𝘵𝘵𝘦𝘯 𝘯𝘰𝘵𝘦𝘴 𝘧𝘳𝘰𝘮 𝘢𝘮𝘣𝘢𝘴𝘴𝘢𝘥𝘰𝘳𝘪𝘢𝘭 𝘴𝘦𝘤𝘳𝘦𝘵𝘢𝘳𝘪𝘦𝘴.
I invited him to tell me more; bring me in to the joy of the moment - so he did.
It suddenly dawned on me: 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙣𝙖𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣𝙨 𝙖𝙧𝙚 𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙚.
The nations are in my home.
My son and I moved to my prayer wall, to view the prayer map for the nations that hung just above the names of all of our family members. We carefully took the map down, and laid it out across the kitchen counter, taking a closer look.
We identified the flags he'd received, and the location on the map, highlighting as we went. We then re-secured the prayer map next to his desk, providing easy access to highlight any additional items that arrive over the next few weeks.
The animated dialogue produced moments of prayer as we reviewed, Dad joining in with his agreement.
It was then, at that moment, that awareness dawned in my now:
"𝙊𝙪𝙧 𝙝𝙤𝙪𝙨𝙚 𝙨𝙝𝙖𝙡𝙡 𝙗𝙚 𝙘𝙖𝙡𝙡𝙚𝙙 𝙖 𝙝𝙤𝙪𝙨𝙚 𝙤𝙛 𝙥𝙧𝙖𝙮𝙚𝙧 𝙛𝙤𝙧 𝙖𝙡𝙡 𝙣𝙖𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣𝙨."
The Scriptural injunction, fused into the core of my being more than thirty five years prior, when my oldest was brand new, had come into my home as a small plaque, reminding all who view it the Truth of Jesus the Intercessor as He ever lives to make intercession for all nations - His inheritance.
The plaque has traveled across country, and moved from domicile to domicile - but the Truth of the Words written upon it have been alive all along.
In this season;
in this moment of time;
the Truth has caught ablaze again,
consumed with a fresh infusion of Life
in the life
of a young man
now growing his awareness
of the great expanse of El Elyon: Posessor of Heaven & Earth.
The Kingdom, without end, ours now to touch in renewed, tangible ways, through partnership with the Order of Melchizedek.
No longer carried within;
Rather, 𝘵𝘳𝘢𝘯𝘴𝘧𝘦𝘳𝘳𝘦𝘥 𝘵𝘰 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘯𝘦𝘹𝘵 𝘨𝘦𝘯𝘦𝘳𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯,
"𝘼𝙨𝙠 𝙤𝙛 𝙈𝙚, 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙄 𝙨𝙝𝙖𝙡𝙡 𝙜𝙞𝙫𝙚 𝙔𝙤𝙪 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙣𝙖𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣𝙨 𝙖𝙨 𝙮𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙞𝙣𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙞𝙩𝙖𝙣𝙘𝙚."
