I had a dream that reminded me of a final fight scene of a movie. Two opponents had been sparring it out round after round, eyes black, face bruised, tired and bewildered these two fighters were nearing the end when they regrouped in the corner with their coaches. That's when I heard the coach say to this man "it's the straw the breaks the camels back" and the dream ended.

The phrase or proverb "it is the last straw that breaks the camel's back", describes the seemingly minor or routine action which causes an unpredictably large and sudden reaction. But what I felt from the dream was that the coach was saying "You got this, you've already worn him down, now go finish this!"

I believe we are on the cusp of our final moments in taking down the strongholds we have been warfaring against. I have felt the weakening of the assault because when the enemy is tired he throws everything he can at you, but much like a worn fighter that has lost his speed, agility, and precision it doesn't land and only reveals his hand.

Maybe you have been fighting for something God has promised you, maybe you have been contending and faithfully stewarding it and you have felt the endless resistance in it coming to pass. Maybe you have come into new territory and ever since it has seemed like a battle to stay there. Maybe you have just grown tired of fighting and you have even said "I can't handle any more, this is the last straw!" Maybe the fight has been for your marriage, for your health, for your kids.. whatever it is I want to prophesy over you that it is going to be the straw that breaks the camels back in Jesus name!

Don't give up, stand your ground and laugh at your opponent because this fight was rigged and Jesus already foretold the score. You were destined to win.

Watch for the unexpected release from bondages, debt, sickness, and messy situations this week as that final blow takes down what has been stealing your hope and joy for far too long..
