Come nearer to Me, says the LORD. I Am not obscure. I will not hide My face from you, and My hand is not short concerning you that it cannot save. My heart is knit with all who call upon My name and receive Me. I will not reject you or your prayers. I hear. I will answer. I will not withhold anything good from you. I Am on your side and will stand with you and I will fight for you. I cannot be defeated, and neither can you. I will help you and be with you in trouble to bring you out of it. I will rescue you and break the teeth of the lion, the enemy of your soul that desires to devour you. You are never alone in the fray, for I not only stand along side to help you, but I surround you with My heavenly host. There are more that are for you than against you, says the LORD, and your victory is assured in Me.
Lift up those hands that hang down and begin to see that you are a victor. The enemy knows that he cannot conquer you, and only hopes to distract and discourage you from entering into My courts with praise and thanksgiving. He knows that he is already defeated and I Am your sword and shield that cannot be overpowered. Lift up your voice onto Me in worship, for you are Mighty in Me. You are the victor, and you are the honorable. Do not fret the small or the big, for nothing escapes My attention and the Goliaths are no match for Me. I have made you to be as bold as My servant, David. Your weapons are not fleshly or of the world, but they are from Me. I have equipped you with My undefeatable spiritual weapons, and placed My power within you. As you stand and face the giant and even the little foxes that endeavor to spoil the vines, you will defeat every purpose of the evil one and destroy all of his inferior weapons and put out all of his fiery darts poised against you as you engage the enemy and stand, strong and undefeatable in Me, says the LORD.
