Praise is a weapon! Worship is a weapon! Giving is a weapon! Rest is a weapon! Revelation is a weapon! These are all powerful weapons BUT all these are effectively demonstrated when you and I are aware of WHO LIVES INSIDE OF US Who loves us and empowers us.
Jesus shed His blood for you and me for us to be washed clean and become temples of the Holy Spirit Who will abide in us forever and when we KNOW that the Spirit of the resurrected King Jesus lives inside of us, who dare be against us?
“What then can shall we say to [all] this? If God is FOR us, who [can be] against us? [Who can be our foe, if God is on our side?]” Romans 8:31 AMPC
God’s promise still holds till today for He is the same yesterday, today and forever. He said, “Behold, I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS.” (Matthew 28:20 ESV) He is a covenant-keeping God, Someone Who is committed to do what He has spoken, Someone Whom we can take at His Word and all we do is receive and respond “Be it done to me according to Your Word, Lord”. We can trust Him that His presence is with us when we’re up high on a mountain, or in a valley, or in a pit of hopelessness, or in a boat-rocking tossed by the waves of the sea. HE IS WITH US ALWAYS!
“FEAR NOT, for I have redeemed you; YOU ARE MINE. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, nor shall the flame scorch you. For I am the Lord you God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior …” Isaiah 43:2-3 NKJV
His presence is found in the shadow of death. His presence is found in war and in conflict. He fights the battle for us. “The Lord shall go forth like a MIGHTY MAN; He shall stir up His zeal like a man of war. He shall cry out, yes, shout aloud; He shall prevail against His enemies.” Isaiah 42:13 He takes charge of you and me.
“For He [God] Himself said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forskae nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you)! ASSUREDLY NOT! Hebrews 13:9 MSG
When we get our eyes focused on Jesus Who won it all for us, beyond a shadow of a doubt we will find His grace and favor uplifting and strengthening us IN HIS PRESENCE ALWAYS.
Thank You, Jesus …
