“I am the daughter of a King who is not moved by the world, for my God is with me and goes before me. I do not fear because I am His.” (Unknown)
God’s army is rising up in this spiritual battle, and you’re a part of it. You not only wear a crown, but you bear weapons against the enemy. Satan has been scheming against you. His attacks have been cunning. He has come after every part of you; your marriage, your family, your mind, your emotions, dreams for your future... We are called to fight back, courageously and fearlessly. We have been called to get up, no matter how the enemy tries to destroy us; to declare victory before we see it; to believe that the Lord we serve is alive and by our side.
“I want to be a woman who overcomes obstacles by tackling them in faith instead of tiptoeing around them in fear.” – Renee Swope
It isn’t always easy being brave. Sometimes it seems impossible to be brave without the absence of fear, but Christ told us that we can look fear in the face and say, “Move aside, you’re in the way.” Christ left you promises in His love letter to you. He promised to go through this battle with you. He dreamed you up, He claimed you, refined you through His grace, covered you with His righteousness as fine clothing, and placed this crown on your head. You have walked through the fire, sometimes tarnishing that crown. Dust it off and prepare for battle. The enemy is a liar. FEAR is a liar. Stop believing the lies of the enemy, and start fighting by believing the promises of God. They are abundant, and they are motivating!
