Absolute Courage (3-1-09)
Battles and warfare call to men to unveil their weapons. This battle I can use the constitution, taxes, UCC, contract law, security agreements, liens, levies, intellect, and any others the imagination can entertain. The only thing lacking for most people is not an arsenal but the courage to wield them. Imagine unsheathing a sword without the strength to control it. Its sharp edge now becomes a danger to you. Where does one find the courage to fight regardless of the weapon? This cannot be a passing courage that could fail but must be an absolute unfailing courage. The only absolute available to man is God. Not a god of imagination or the no god of rebellion but the true God who is there. What you have witnessed from me is a courage of my own but one supported by the strength of God’s absolute strength. This is not something that can be faked. The battle automatically exposes if you have the strength to wield your weapons. Look at the difference between clients or codefendants. Human responsibility must be based upon Divine Sovereignty. In our world today truth has become an arbitrary, capricious, relative, subjective thought. There can be no absolutes because the God who is there has been rejected. Only He can give a command that is authoritative and absolute. Only then does it become a truth binding upon all creation. If a man recognizes the God who is there he will subject himself to the commands as absolute. Out of this relationship an absolute courage can arise that will wield weapons of warfare against all that defy these absolutes. Included therein will be a confidence that all the power of the Almighty is with you. Decisions are not measured by personal cost which is arbitrary but on the attributes of an absolute. I have seen more failure for want of courage and disregard of absolutes than by being conquered. If God is for us who can be against us? This promise is of no value if you don’t know it absolutely. If you do you will find absolute courage to face any foe with the power and confidence to wield the weapon you’ve selected for battle. Learn this and give it priority over the technology of weapons and you shall become a force to reckon with.
