I am a warrior in the Spirit. No weapon formed against me or my destiny shall prosper. The LORD is my Personal Bravery. He fights for me every single day. He fights for the people He brings into my life to love. Together, our love fights for their blessing, freedom, and victory.
This is one of my FAVORITE affirmations! The Amplified Bible says that God is our Personal Bravery.
The Lord God is my Strength, my personal bravery, and my invincible army; He makes my feet like hinds’ feet and will make me to walk [not to stand still in terror, but to walk] and make [spiritual] progress upon my high places [of trouble, suffering, or responsibility]! [ For the Chief Musician; with my stringed instruments. ] Habakkuk 3:19 (AMPC)
We do well to remember there is a spiritual battle going on that we cannot see. The "symptoms" of the enemy are stealing, killing, and destroying. Our battle is not with people, it is with the spiritual forces of wickedness. Sometimes people behave badly, but, this does not mean our battle is with them. Underlying all the junk in our lives is a liar who comes to destroy, distract, and detour us off of our God-given course. When you are frustrated with someone, remember that they are an image-bearer of God. That never changes. Turn your frustration on the enemy and begin to worship God by speaking out truth, praise, and adoration. Release God's healing, direction, provision, wisdom, bravery, and favor over the very person you're frustrated with. This will change the spiritual atmosphere in your life, as well as in the heavenlies.
For the record, satan is not God's equal. God has no equal. Jesus is quite literally unrivaled. The spiritual forces of wickedness pale in comparison to the Lamb who was slain. Let this give you courage, bravery, and boldness to stand your ground when junk flies at you.
We have quite a few guests come through our home in Tennessee. When I speak this affirmation I think of family, friends, and all the guests that stay with us from time to time. I believe by partnering with God to love each one, we release favor, freedom, victory, and blessing over their lives. Just as I receive God's great love for me, I begin to pour it out as a blessing to others. It's a full-circle love.
What do you think? Is there a part of this affirmation or verse that is being highlighted in your spirit? Let me know in the comments.
Have a victorious week!
