A Warrior of Peace

Ephesians 6:15 (TPT) Stand on your feet alert, then you’ll always be ready to share the blessings of peace.

Beloved, I AM YHVH Shalom – the Lord your peace. But peace that comes from Me is no passive, fragile thing. My peace is a force to be reckoned with. My peace isn’t powerless in the face of turbulence or chaos, for My peace wars against it. 

And beloved, you have been given My peace and are called to walk in it. This includes taking territory for Me. You are an atmosphere changer. You restore My peace everywhere your feet may land. You are a warrior of peace – doing battle against the confusion of the enemy simply by being who I have made you. So walk in peace you have been given.

Powerful Weapons

2 Corinthians 10:4 (AMP) The weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood]. Our weapons are divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses.

Beloved, the things of My Kingdom rarely make sense to the natural mind. From a human perspective, brute force seems like strength, while tenderness and compassion can seem weak and powerless. But from a spiritual perspective, love and compassion are two of the most powerful weapons you can wield. 

So resist the urge to assume you are weaponless and ineffective, for that is simply a lie from the pit of hell. You have more than enough assets on hand with which to wage effective warfare. So use them well. Love well. Walk in truth. Be righteous. Stand in faith. And in all, know that I AM with you and working in and through you. 

Love is a Powerful Weapon

Proverbs 15:1 (TPT) Respond gently when you are confronted and you’ll defuse the rage of another. Responding with sharp, cutting words will only make it worse. Don’t you know that being angry can ruin the testimony of even the wisest of men?

Beloved, love is a powerful weapon. Just as a gentle flow of steady water can change the face of stone, so love has the power to change even the hardest of hearts. So love well, and do so without reserve. 

For you have been well equipped. I pour out My love over you – demonstrating My unconditional, limitless love for you each day. As you allow yourself to be saturated in My love, you are equipping yourself to pour it back out as you love others.

Give your love as an offering to Me. Resist the urge to love to gain an earthly response, but rather do it to My glory. Because I AM love. Therefore operating in love means you are flowing in Me. So love well. Love always. Love like Me.

Stand Ready

Psalm 45:3 (NASB) Gird Your sword on Your thigh, O Mighty One, In Your splendor and Your majesty!

Beloved, stand ready. Be prepared to fight at My command. You do not war against flesh and blood, but against supernatural powers that would move against you and against My Kingdom. But do not be afraid, for I have overcome the wicked one. 

Beloved, none can stand against Me. As My children stand with Me, they are aligned and prepared for victory. For I AM the victorious One. So stand. Resist the devil and all his efforts to move you. Stand in faith – unwavering. Stand with Me.  Continue reading “Stand Ready”

I AM Unshakable

Hebrews 12:28-29 (VOICE) Therefore, let us all be thankful that we are a part of an unshakable Kingdom and offer to God worship that pleases Him and reflects the awe and reverence we have toward Him, for He is like a fierce fire that consumes everything.

Beloved, I AM unshakable. My Kingdom knows no end. I AM a fierce and mighty warrior – a blazing fire and a roaring lion, shaking all that can be shaken so that what may stand firm will remain. 

As you are tested in the fires, you need not be afraid. In the valley of the shadow of death, I AM with you – you have nothing to fear. Join forces with Me. Stay by My side and trust Me, for I AM unshakable. Continue reading “I AM Unshakable”

I AM King of All the Earth

Psalm 47:7 (KJV) For God [is] the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding.

Beloved, I AM King of all the earth. Understand who I AM. Understand that I AM sovereign. Understand that I AM God. And with full understanding of who I AM, look to Me and give praise. Extol My name throughout the nations. Glorify My name in all the earth. For I AM worthy.

I don’t require praise to feed My vanity or puff Me up with pride. It is simply a joyous acknowledgement of truth. Praise is a way to help you remind yourself of who I AM. It also is a declaration, and helps inspire others to trust in Me. 

Praise also acts as a victory dance – announcing to the enemy that he is defeated, in some cases even before that victory has manifested. This makes praise a form of spiritual warfare. So wield this joyous weapon with firm assurance of who I AM. May it pour out from a heart of understanding. May it magnify Me in your heart. And may it declare to all the earth that I AM King.

Refuse to Believe the Lies

John 10:27 (AMP) The sheep that are My own hear My voice and listen to Me; I know them, and they follow Me.

Beloved, refuse to believe the lies that the enemy throws your way. You are Mine, and those who are Mine know My voice and they will not follow another’s. So pause as you listen, and  recognize who is speaking that you might rightly determine which words are of value and to which you should pay no heed. 

For the enemy of your soul will always toss “thought bombs” at you like grenades. Their intention is to maim and destroy. Refuse to give them power by simply rejecting them as you identify their origin. Toss them out, beloved. Take every thought captive and make it submit to My truth. 

Beloved, you know Me. You know My heart towards you is good. Refuse to believe anything less. Refuse to settle for anything less. Know that you are precious, prized, the apple of My eye – My heart’s desire. Know the truth of your identity as you rest in the cocoon of My love. Continue reading “Refuse to Believe the Lies”

YHVH Gibbor Milchamah (the Lord Mighty in Battle) {Moments with God}

{I declare} There is none like You. No one worthy – no one who can compare. No one can stand against You. And should they try, they would melt like wax before You if they stood as Your adversary. For there is no one like You in heaven or on earth. You are majestic and awesome – mighty beyond our comprehension. So I choose to stand with You. And come what may, I will remain steadfast, for by Your side is the only place I want to be. So where You are, I will be too. I trust You. I yield to Your plans. You are mighty and You are good. You are the Holy One. You are YHVH Gibbor Milchamah – the Lord Mighty in Battle. And You are worthy.

{Sensing the Lord’s presence hovering – like with the pillars of cloud and fire. In the same way Moses refused to move without the presence of the Almighty, so my heart stands fast with His presence. And I sense His pleasure over my unwillingness to move without Him. It’s as if He is giving a look that says, “Well done.”}

Psalm 76:7 (TPT) No wonder you are greatly feared! You are the awe-inspiring God! For who could ever stand before your face when your fierce anger burns and live to tell about it.

Exodus 33:15 (VOICE) If Your presence doesn’t travel with me, then don’t lead us away from here.

Align with Me

Jeremiah 20:11 (VOICE) But I am not alone. The Eternal is here with me. He stands beside me, as a dreaded warrior. That is why my tormentors will fail so miserably. They cannot win. Their humiliation and permanent dishonor will be remembered for all time.

Beloved, align with Me, and I will stand beside you and in defense of you. No one can stand against Me, so join forces with Me. I AM victorious. I AM faithful. And I AM fiercely protective of My children. 

You need not worry about that which stands against you as you stand with Me. The power is not in you, but in Who you stand with. Look to Me and join forces with Me.

A Time to Fight

Isaiah 27:1 (VOICE) On that day, the Eternal One will unsheathe His sword—fierce, great, and strong—and punish the monster of chaos and terror, Leviathan the fleeing serpent. He will strike Leviathan, the twisting serpent, and slay the dragon of the sea.

Beloved, there is a time to fight, and in that time I will move decisively and in victory. Move with Me, for I AM YHVH Tsaba – the Lord of hosts. I command the heavenly armies, and they defer to My command. 

Be ready to move at My prompting. Trust that you’ve been prepared. Yield to Me as I lead you, and leave the victory in My hands, for I AM a warrior. YHVH is My name.
