Can you see, hear and feel the Lord moving in our nation, in your area, in your relationships, in your own life? He is poised ready to bring victory through us.
I love the description in 2 Samuel 23:11-12: "Next to him was Shammah son of Agee the Hararite. When the Philistines banded together at a place where there was a field full of lentils, Israel’s troops fled from them. But Shammah took his stand in the middle of the field. He defended it and struck the Philistines down, and the LORD brought about a great victory."
This brief passage strongly compels me to yearn to be like one of David’s mighty men, Shammah. When others fled from their enemies, he “took his stand in the middle of the field. He defended it struck the Philistines down, and the LORD brought about a great victory.” NKJV
More great victories await as we hear from the Lord directly for our appointed times/days of opportunity for great engagement for the sake of His Kingdom. Let’s embrace them and defend the field where we have been planted by God’s grand design. There is no time to waste on fear or anger about our days, we must engage. If not us, who?

Please take two minutes to listen to this wonderful God idea from brand new Massachusetts coordinator, Janice Taylor:
Furthermore, I wanted to share about recent NDP Oregon Summit, November 11-12th. These gatherings like Massachusetts coming up and Oregon seek to acquaint newcomers and equip existing volunteers with the vision of every county, every city--every field covered and defended, ground being taken for the Lord. Barbara Ingmire, West National Area Leader, shared the importance of these grassroots gatherings from biblical passages:
“Where there is no vision, the people perish.” (Proverbs 29:18)
"And the LORD answered me, and said, ‘Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that reads it.’” (Habakkuk 2:2)
Gwen Bradley of Alabama, Southeast National Area Leader joined this gathering. Her observation of the strengthening included seeing the former leaders together in support of the present state volunteer leadership. “God is pleased with honoring the past with the present. It takes a long time to build relationships; that is not an overnight process.”
Barbara noted how God blessed this foundation in Oregon from past to the present. For Massachusetts all the past state leaders are being included for the NE Summit if they are able to participate. Past leaders have sown much and serving in the present means you are only there because someone has gone before.
