Some of you woke up this morning with
an unexpected feeling of angst. What you are sensing is what the broader
culture is experiencing each and every day. 
Angst is permeating our world. God is using this angst as an invitation
to make a shift in your thinking to become an agent of change in your family,
city and nation. God has allowed you to feel the pain of others for a greater Kingdom

What you are sensing is a tremendous spiritual battle
currently being waged in our culture. This battlefield is not fought with natural
weapons, strategy or tactics. Attempting to use natural borders and political
rhetoric to define this struggle is an illusion. When we attempt to fight a
spiritual battle with the same logic used to fight natural battles defined by the
limits and interests of natural, horizontal borders, we end up expending our limited
energy and resources fighting in the wrong direction advancing our cause toward
the wrong “enemy”.

This is a different kind of warfare waged between
varying levels of spiritual authority in the heavens. This is why Paul told us
to fix our eyes on the things above and to draw our weapons from the unnatural
arsenal of heaven. The battle lines of this spiritual war are vertically
defined – within the varying levels of authority in the heavenly realm – not horizontally drawn
between nations and people groups.

The battle being waged is one whose border will be defined
by our renewed thinking. The angst you are feeling is a battle being fought over
mindsets. God is reforming and reviving
the mind of His Church in preparation for what He has planned. This angst is
being used by God to get your attention to refocus your efforts on a different
battle being fought on a different plane. The troops in this battle are armed with
hope, faith and love. Against these weapons no army of spiritual darkness can
