The Enemy's Game: Countermeasures--Heroic Acts
'I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire; and they are not hurt, and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.'

Then Nebuchadnezzar went near the mouth of the burning fiery furnace and spoke, saying, 'Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, servants of the Most High God, come out, and come here.' Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego came from the midst of the fire... these men on whose bodies the fire had no power; the hair of their head was not singed nor were their garments affected, and the smell of fire was not on them...

Nebuchadnezzar spoke, saying, 'Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, Who sent His Angel and delivered His servants who trusted in Him...'
Daniel 3:25-28 (NKJV)
Strutting with swag is a silly walk without heroism. Talking big talk is an empty speech without heroism. Acting like Christ is hypocrisy without heroism. Security is impossible without heroism.

Heroism is a heart-led denial of worldly odds. Heroism is a death-defying spectacle of faith. Heroism is a saint heading straight into media. Heroism is the way and the proof of a life well lived.

Can you name even one Bible star who wasn't heroic? I don't think so, because God's all about impossible odds. He loves to stand up on behalf of those who stand up for Him.

Actors, models and talent for Christ: Prepare yourselves for heroism. Alphabetical practice includes:

Abandoning your baby booties...

Beginning your life as a soldier...

Choosing the One Book over others...

Deciding your destiny is great...

Escaping your personal comforts...

Forgiving sins and forging through pain...

Giving everything you've got to God...

Holding His Example as your goal...

Ignoring the word: impossible...

Jumping up when others stay seated...

Kicking the dust away from your feet...

Leaving phony walls of protection...

Moving fearlessly in His Spirit...

Nailing all denials on His Cross...

Owning His Order to carry one...

Praying ceaselessly for His guidance...

Quieting your life to hear His Word...

Rejecting selfishness as your friend...

Saying 'thank you' when others complain...

Trusting love as your perfect weapon...

Using media for His profit...

Vying for influential airtime...

Working harder than the reigning stars...

X-raying your own motivations...

Yanking away evil temptations...

Zipping up a win by not quitting...
