I hear His Thunder…”My Sword of Power.” Listen to My words, child of Mine, and I will guard you and protect you from all forms of evil. Your true calling is to be an overcomer, and to be an overcomer means you will be challenged. Darkness is set against the church and against you as My trusting child. But I am the Light that will split open the darkness and bring My victory. Have I not promised to deliver you and to be your wrap-around Shield? Let your eyes focus on My shield of victory and not the darkness of evil that shrouds the nations. Be filled with delight as you walk in My light, and I will be answer to earth’s evil.
Hold tightly to every promise that I have given you. Write My words upon your heart and fill your mind with My wisdom, for the days ahead will be more than you expect. For both glory and shaking are upon you. The more severe the shaking of your circumstances the clearer will be My invitation to partake of My glory. The storms are coming, but they will bring forth My new man, My new wine, and My new expression of grace for you.
You will overcome all things, for I am with you. Bring My word of overcoming grace to others, for their hearts are now ready to hear My song of triumph. Place My armor on your soul and go forth to see your enemies vanquished. Wear My righteousness over your heart, My delivering power on your mind, My good news will be your shoes, My truth will keep you strong, and My sword of power will energize your every step.
Be faithful to Me and stand true when you hear of others who fall. You will be My overcoming witness to many, so take My words as your weapon this day. You will not give in to the darkness and the weariness that is coming over My saints, but you will prevail, for I am the God of Strength and the Source of mighty power. Be strong, My overcoming one, and you will see My days of miracles.
Ephesians 6:10-11 The Passion Translation
¹⁰Now finally, my beloved ones, be supernaturally infused with strength through your life-union with the Lord Jesus. Stand victorious with the force of His explosive power flowing in and through you. ¹¹Put on the full suit of armor that God wears when He goes into battle, so that you will be protected as you fight against the evil strategies of the accuser!
