Sitting by the water watching the darkest clouds move in today. Where there had moments earlier been blue sky and white fluffy clouds the wind had changed and in rolled these monsterous clouds. I watched as they bellowed, filling in the spaces all around. As I watched the darkness close in around ever speck of blue sky I felt that tightening in my throat, that ache in my innermost being. It was overwhelming to watch. I heard a beep from my phone and glanced to see an email received. As I read this email below tears streamed down my face as rain began to fall. It is in these moments, when HE speaks right to my heart that I have the strength to keep moving on.
My Courageous Princess,
Allow Me, your Strong Prince to fight any and all battles this life brings you. I don’t want My Bride to exhaust herself fighting in her own strength.
The battle you face My love, is already won! Now step behind Me and let your powerful Prince shield you from the attacks of the enemy of your soul.
Yes, I am your warrior and your protector. As long as you stand behind me and let me fight for you, there is nothing that can or will overtake you.
It is my pleasure to go to war for my beloved bride.
“For the LORD your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory.”
~Deuteronomy 20:4 (NIV)~
