The King’s Gambit – A Word by Amie Rogers
We have all been inundated with many things especially over these past three days. I’ve been right there with you with some moments feeling like the craziest emotional roller coaster ever! However, I have to simply say, “GOD IS FAITHFUL”!
Every single time my thoughts or emotions have wondered and/or wandered, He has spoken.
Just yesterday as I woke up I heard Him whisper, “on the third day”. I spent all day simply soaking on that letting Him just sit with me – giving me His word and not allowing my own interpretations overtake that phrase.
Let me say that again: let Him give His word and prevent self from creating own interpretations that overtake what He is actually saying.
That right there is KEY in this moment of time.
Another KEY: Intercession.
Keys unlock things. How we speak and move in this moment will either unlock doors or keep them locked.
This set moment, here in America, is EXTREMELY STRATEGIC!
I had the phrase “The King’s Gambit” drop into my spirit yesterday and to be honest, I let it sit there on the back burner. As I woke this morning the Lord was unrelenting in repeating it over and over.
Gambit: a device, action or opening remark, typically one entailing a degree of risk, that is calculated to gain an advantage (Google dictionary)
In the game of chess, there is something called The Queen’s Gambit. It is an opening move of the game where the player sacrifices a piece (usually a pawn) with the hope of achieving a resulting advantageous position. It is an opening offensive move to put pressure on the opponent to defend correctly.
What happens when you’re trying to make strategic moves under intense pressure? It typically becomes a downward spiral of poor and desperate moves. Take note of this very thing.
Also, in the game of chess, there were two pieces that stood out to me – the King and the Queen. The King has minimal moves BUT is the MOST IMPORTANT. The Queen, however, can move anywhere on the board in any direction she desires. She is considered the MOST POWERFUL!
What does this mean?
Our Holy Father in Heaven is THE Chess Master! His is THE MOST IMPORTANT element in ALL things in Heaven AND here on earth! It is our position to be willing to listen to His strategies for our movements. Our movements in our words, our intercession and every single step we take into every territory and atmosphere we walk into. I strongly felt Him calling us, His Remnant, His Bride – The Queen! He has given us ALL Power and Authority in His name to move about, to put pressure on the enemy and take him out! We are in The King’s Gambit and we WILL WIN!
In Judges 4, prophet Deborah declared the battle would be won through the hand of a woman. That woman was Jael. She strategically engaged with the enemy. He asked for a drink, she gave him milk that put him to sleep. As he slept, she took a tent peg and a hammer and drove that peg through the temple of that enemy.
Church, we are Jael! We are the queen on God’s chessboard and we are taking out the enemy!
“very well, Deborah said, “I will go with you. But because of the way you are going about this, the honor will not be yours, for the Lord will had Sisera over to a woman” Judges 4:9 (NIV)
“Sisera, however, fled on foot to the tent of Jael, the wife of Heber the Kenite, because there were friendly relations between Jabin king of Hazor and the clan of Heber the Kenite. Jael went out to meet Sisera and said to him, “Come, my lord, come right in. don’t be afraid.” So he entered her tent, and she put a covering over him. “I’m thirsty, “ he said, “Please give me some water.” She opened a skin of milk, gave him a drink, and covered him up. “Stand in the doorway of the tent, he told her. “If someone comes by and asks you, “is anyone here?” say “No.” But, Jael, Heber’s wife, picked up a tent peg and a hammer and went quietly to him while he lay fast asleep, exhausted. She drove the peg through his temple into the ground, and he died.” Judges 4:17-21 (NIV)
The enemy has had us locked up in jail with more than enough guards watching us and we have simply sat back and rested. Some of that has been important and some of it has been because of other things. But NOW, the Angel of the Lord is SUDDENLY awakening us! Because what the enemy had planned and all the spectators have been anticipating is going to be disrupted by this SUDDENLY AWAKENING and MIRACULOUS “JAIL BREAK”!!!(Acts 12)
“Then Peter came to himself and said, “NOW I KNOW WITHOUT A DOUBT that the Lord sent His angel and rescued me from Herod’s clutches AND from everything the Jewish people WERE ANTICIPATING” Acts 12:11 (NIV, emphasis mine)
