It’s not that I want to degrade what scripture says or think that my wisdom supersedes the truths of God’s word. I just want to make it personal….
So, I cover my head with the gel of salvation. Not as an ornament, a decoration, but as a protective layer between my mind and what is shouted at me from the world. My feet are fitted with the boots of the Gospel so that I run and dance and move to bring the Light of Jesus to a lost and broken world. All that I am, all that I carry is held by a buckle that proclaims God’s truth, whether I like it or not, in the face of the lies of the enemy. I plug in to my amplifier of faith that stand between me and the voices of doubt and fear. In His truth, by His word, I can declare that He is to be trusted, His promises do not falter. And I raise up my guitar of the Spirit, my voice that proclaims what God has declared in His word. I fight against the hosts of hell with God’s gifts and armor. And through Him, I can not be defeated.
Saul tried to clothe David in armor that did not fit him, tools that would only hinder him as he stood before the giant. God does not clothe us this way. He fits us uniquely for our calling in this world and we stand ready, not because of formulas or cliched ideas but because He has made us ready. It is by His power, His Spirit that we stand under the weight of the world, the weight of our weakness and fragile souls. We stand and say, “WE CAN NOT BE MOVED.”
And the hosts of darkness run in fear because it is God who shines through us.
“Though a thousand fall at your right hand and ten thousand fall at your left, it will not come near you…”
We can not be defeated!
