God is my Warrior

I can’t even begin to recall how many times in scripture that God calls us to have courage and to not be afraid. Hundreds of times. How beautiful is that? He’s so concerned with ensuring that if we’re His, we have absolutely nothing to ever worry about. God is sovereign and He works everything out for our good, for those who love Him. EVEN when we mess up and sin, and make mistakes, and fumble – time, and time, and time again. There is no better security or assurance than this! He wants us to trust Him as our warrior God, carrying us through this life on earth and fighting our battles as well as equipping us with His armour.

The battle belongs to the Lord our God. And He so delights when we fall to our knees, lift up our hands, and give all our cares and concerns and problems to Him. He adores a heart crying out to Him. He delights in taking care of us and sheltering us under His wing, as a mother hen covers her babies. We’re God’s babies, and we have nothing to fear, as long as we’re clinging to Him. He is in control and He is more powerful than even the most horrible circumstances or scariest situations. Even during these times and seasons, we have nothing to fear. The God of all that exists has us in the palm of His hand. We can never be snatched out of His hand, which means we have nothing to fear. If our God is for us, who can ever be against us??? Not demons, not any spiritual thing, no authority, no calamity, or hardship, or trying time, or pain, or even DEATH – not even death can separate us from God’s love and protection and sovereignty over our lives. His seal is over our heart, and our name is written on the palm of His hand. We’re His, forever. And He will protect us every day for the rest of our lives here on this earth.

What a glorious warrior King.💛

{Isaiah 49:16}
See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me.

{exodus 14:14}
The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.

{The Song of Solomon 8:6-7}
Place me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm, for love is strong as death, jealousy is fierce as the grave. Its flashes are flashes of fire, the very flame of the Lord. Many waters cannot quench love, neither can floods drown it.

{Romans 8:31-39}
What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us? Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything else? Who dares accuse us whom God has chosen for his own? No one—for God himself has given us right standing with himself. Who then will condemn us? No one—for Christ Jesus died for us and was raised to life for us, and he is sitting in the place of honor at God’s right hand, pleading for us. Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? (As the Scriptures say, “For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.” ) No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us. And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.

{Ephesians 6:10-18}
A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm. Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armor of God’s righteousness. For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared. In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil. Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere.

{Matthew 23:37}
“O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones God’s messengers! How often I have wanted to gather your children together as a hen protects her chicks beneath her wings, but you wouldn’t let me.”

His heart is so sweet.💛
