Episode 33 - Session in Review Series feat. Rep. Dodie Horton

'God! Arise with awesome power, and every one of your enemies will scatter in fear! Chase them away—all these God-haters. Blow them away as a puff of smoke. Melt them away like wax in the fire. One good look at you and the wicked vanish. But let all the righteous be glad! Yes, let them all rejoice in your presence and be carried away with gladness. Let them laugh and be radiant with joy! Let them sing their celebration-songs for the coming of the cloud rider whose name is Yah! To the fatherless he is a father. To the widow he is a champion friend. The lonely he makes part of a family. The prisoners he leads into prosperity until they sing for joy. This is our Holy God in his Holy Place! But for the rebels there is heartache and despair. O Lord, it was you who marched in front of your people, leading them through the wasteland. Pause in his presence The earth shook beneath your feet; the heavens filled with clouds before the presence of the God of Sinai. The sacred mountain shook at the sight of the face of Israel’s God. You, O God, sent the reviving rain upon your weary inheritance, showers of blessing to refresh it. So there your people settled. And in your kindness you provided the poor with abundance. God Almighty declares the word of the gospel with power, and the warring women of Zion deliver its message: “The conquering legions have themselves been conquered. Look at them flee!” Now Zion’s women are left to gather the spoils.' 


This is a picture of the Lord fighting on our behalf as we fight for Him and for what’s right. In this passage we see that worship is a weapon. And women who proclaim the goodness of God are a great host - likened to a great army that causes kings of armies to flee -- conquering them with the declaring of the Word of the Lord. I want to hone in on that last passage -- And she who remains at home shall divide the spoil. I want to speak that over you Representative Horton today -- that as you rise up and speak the truth, as you proclaim the Word of the Lord and live in open thanksgiving about His goodness, as you remain faithful to the people at home - the people of your district, faithfully representing them and faithfully representing the Lord, you WILL be the one who divides the spoils of war.
