Do you remember the Tom Cruise movie series “Mission Impossible”? They were, and are, great action movies. They were always hard-fought missions, battles between good and evil.


Tom and his team persevered every time. They were trained for the mission. They always beat impossible odds.


But he was also always given an option: “Your mission, should you choose to accept it….


We are at a tipping point today. Every prophet/teacher that I respect says the next four months will be the most intense battle of our lifetime. I think you can see that. Some days I get up from my knees and, within 24 hours, I see specific answers to prayer. The next day, I wake up and there is a whole new battle in front of me.


God has been getting us in shape. I don’t know about you, but I’ve had to lift a lot of heavy weight in the last few years. I’m certainly not even close to Tom Cruise’s physical preparedness, but my spiritual muscles are strong. How about yours?

Recently, the Lord has been speaking to me about Jeremiah 33:3. I’ve been nestled in there for a while now, and today I can see why. The scripture says, “Call on Me, and I will tell you great and mighty things which you haven’t known.” (NKJV)


The word for “call” can mean to “NAME” something, to proclaim it. In other words, as we call on our Father, we name Him, proclaim Him “King of Kings and Lord of Lords.” We name Him the One who answers us and tells us His secrets. We name Him the One who wins the battle. Every. Single. Time.


In Romans 4:17 (NKJV), God tells us to “call those things that be not, as though they were.” When we are in an intense battle, we will always be tempted to call things as they ARE. But God has a different plan.


As I pursued this thought, I began to “name” this battle we are in for our faith, our country, our freedom. Instead of naming it “hard” or “mission impossible,” I heard the Lord say, “Name it mission accomplished!” I love that! It gives you a whole different perspective, doesn’t it?

In God’s eyes, this battle is His “Mission Accomplished.” He always views the end from the beginning. In His eyes, on His “to-do” list, this battle can be checked off as “mission accomplished.” Promises made. Promises kept.


So, are you ready to do battle?


One thing I love about King David is that he viewed Goliath as someone who was coming against God. Goliath was belittling the armies of God. He was taunting them daily. But it says that David ran toward the enemy. He didn’t back off. He didn’t hesitate. He ran to the battlefront. And he said to that very tall, strong, proud giant,


You come to me with a sword, with a spear, and with a javelin. But I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. 46 This day the Lord will deliver you into my hand, and I will strike you and take your head from you. And this day I will give the carcasses of the camp of the Philistines to the birds of the air and the wild beasts of the earth, that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel. 47 Then all this assembly shall know that the Lord does not save with sword and spear; for the battle is the Lords, and He will give you into our hands.” – I Samuel 17:45-47 NKJV


Guess what! It happened. Just. As. He. Said.

Recently, in the Rose Garden, on the National Day of Prayer, Pastor Paula White gave President Trump a prophetic word. It was related to another David battle.


David had suffered horrible losses at Ziklag. When he and his mighty men returned from a battle, they discovered that the enemy had taken everything from them. Their wives, their children, their livestock. Everything! Even his mighty men were angry at him. Everyone turned against him, threatening to stone him.


But David knew who to run to, and that’s what he did.


He asked the Lord, “’Should I pursue this enemy? Will I overtake them?’ And He answered him, Pursue, for you shall surely overtake them and without fail recover all.’” – I Samuel 30:8 AMPC

And he did.

Your Mission, Beloved, should you choose to accept it is to:

Run toward the Enemy

Name this battle “Mission Accomplished”

Carry the Name of Jesus into the battle, the Name at which every knee must bow


And then?
