I Kings 18:21. And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the Lord be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.
Your fellow soldiers are praying for your strength to fight, but youíve got to be purposed to get up on your own. Do you believe God or what? Did you not know this fight is real and some fight dirty because they are full of the devil, they donít care about who they hurt Youíve got to know God for yourself and know that he is well able to keep you in any situation.
We all have things that come against us. We may get knocked down, but the key to living in victory is to learn how to get up in the Spirit. The power is in you to get up if you want to, but you will have to be the one to make the first move. You may be sitting around waiting for God to change your circumstances. But God is waiting on you to rise up in your Spirit. You just donít know how fierce you are in Christ. Why are you fearful, why are you allowing yourself to be tossed to and fro, put that devil under your feet Strengthen your mind with the word of God, thatís how we fight. Throw the word at what attacks you and it will cut it to pieces. Your fellow soldiers await you, we need your prayers, and we need you to bind with us as we all fight devils and adversity. So gird up your loins, heed the call, join in the fight, put on your Armour soldier for the Lord is with us and goes before us,
this is our confidence and our strength.
When you do your part, Heíll begin to strengthen you and empower you to walk in the midst of adversity and those who hurt you. You were not created with fear so why should you give up and hide out. There is power in you, but you have to learn how to tap into it and use it. You and you alone have to believe that God loves you and you have to take up your cross and walk, if you intend to follow after Him.
Donít look for anyone to hold your hand and be there for you like a little child, God did not fill you with his Holy Spirit and His Anointing for you to run and hide. Stand strong and let your light shine. You are a child of God trust him to keep you. Some things have to happen in your life for you to be tempered and to grow. Donít run and hide, turn around and charge the enemy, confound him by not giving up but by showing up. Know that by all means you are not weak but mighty in Christ Jesus.
Donít let adversity defeat you, donít let no one or anything steal your joy, your peace, and your strength. God has destined you to live in victory, feed your mind the word of God, and meditate day and night. Bind and cast down all the negative things you hear, take authority and cast down every lie and loose the truth of Godís word. Rise up soldier and take your land back.
In Jesus Name!
Your Sister in the Lord & Fellow Soldier
