9-21 (2 of 2)

Your shield of faith is alive and empowered through your knowledge of My truths. I want you to know who I say you are. You are My child, My warrior, an extension of My life. I want you to know that nothing can separate you from Me. As you lift up these beliefs, you are protected from the fiery darts that surely come as you enter the battle for My Kingdom. I am training your hands for battle, teaching you to fight the good fight of faith. Your weapons are not angry hands striking, but your weapons are mighty in love and prayer and praise of Me. They pull down strongholds and accomplish much for My kingdom. Your battle is not against flesh and blood, but against powers and principalities and dark forces. It is these dark forces that move men to sin. And you have the ability from My Spirit within you to slay these forces and to claim what I have accomplished on your behalf through My death and resurrection. You are more than victorious through Me, more than a conqueror and through you I will diffuse a fragrance of the knowledge of Me in every place. I will preserve you coming in and going out from this day forth, until forever more.~

John 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, “He that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto My Father.

Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.

Psalm 47 O clap your hands, all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph, Sing praises to God, sing praises unto our King, sing praises. For God is the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding.

Rest, My weary warrior, for I stand on your behalf. I have fought and I have won. Look upon Me, coming from battle victorious. See the scars on My hands and the blood on my brow. I don’t call you to war the same way I have fought, but I call you to be still and know that I am God.  The battle is not yours. The work I have for you to do is to believe in Me. I want you to know that it isn’t from your hand that My kingdom comes. You are human and I am supernatural. I will not give My glory to another. But I want you to see what I do on your behalf. When you know that it isn’t you and humbly ask for My provision, then you will see My miracles. As long as you strive in your own strength, I will resist you, but when you realize that you can’t do it then I give you My grace. My grace is sufficient. I will not in any way fail you, nor give you up, nor leave you without support. ~Jesus

1 Cor 1:30-31 It is because of Him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God-that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. Therefore, as it is written ‘Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.’

1 Peter 5:5-7 All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because, ‘God opposes the proud but  shows favor to the humble.’ Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s might hand, that He may lift you up in due time. Cast all you anxiety on Him for He cares for you.

Isaiah 59:19 From the west, people will fear the name of the Lord, and from the rising of the sun, they will revere His glory. For He will come like a pent-up flood that the breath of the Lord drives along.
