Have you ever considered yourself
Those who know me well...
have heard this of my visions.
For I consider it often
in the Kingdom of Heaven...
the things of God unseen by human eyes
but battled still by princes light and dark.
And one day, all will be unveiled,
known without a doubt
that what is before us
simply a pretense,
shallow vanity meant to distract
from the higher purposes
So here, I see myself,
and anyone who will consider
they too, as this a warrior...
This is what the Lord says
to Lisa, his anointed one,
whose right hand He will empower.
Before her, mighty kings
will be paralyzed with fear.
Their fortress gates will be opened,
never to shut again.
This is what the Lord says:
“I will go before you, Lisa,
and level the mountains.
I will smash down gates of bronze
and cut through bars of iron.
And I will give you treasures
hidden in the darkness... secret riches.
I will do this so you may know
that I am the Lord,
the God of Israel,
the one who calls you by name.
“And why have I called you for this work?
Why did I call you by name
when you did not know Me?
I am the Lord;
there is no other God.
I have equipped you for battle,
though you don’t even know Me,
so all the world from east to west
will know there is no other God.
I am the Lord, and there is no other.
I create the light and make the darkness.
I send good times and bad times.
I, the Lord, am the one who does these things.
Isaiah 45:1-7 NLT
Until the name of Jesus
is known to all mankind,
His battles are never finished.
Do I stand on a corner
beating a Bible and shouting His name.
But I do put on the Armor of God,
for I must know who I am
Do I struggle
with sharp and heavy weapons waged,
swinging, stabbing, jabbing at my enemy?
Only if I get distracted, tangled and
Many and most battles I see
are best fought with
love, joy, peace, patience,
kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
gentleness, and self-control.
For those are things the true enemy
has no idea how to conquer.
And those, how we are anointed.
Does anyone want to live a life
that is long and prosperous?
Then keep your tongue from speaking evil
and your lips from telling lies!
Turn away from evil and do good.
Search for peace, and work to maintain it.
Does anyone think I have lost my mind
Because I believe to be a warrior?
To be quite honest...
I care not.
Because I'm not living to please people.
That is how I got tangled and lost,
frustrated and offended.
I'd rather people think I'm different.
Because that's exactly how God intended
me to be!
Unique and special.
Precious in His sight.
A warrior, anointed and strengthened
by God to love others so much
that the enemy just releases them
from his grasp and doesn't
know what else to do!
Word of God
train me, today...
To live out my unique anointing
as a warrior in the Kingdom of God.
To love others in Your strength,
proudly representing all
that You've made me to be.
from my heart...
I write as an overflow... an expression of my true love for God and with a deep desire to encourage others in their day to day lives. For we can only find peace, joy, and satisfaction when we yield to the One who yielded His life for us.
