So, here I sit, enjoying a wonderful breeze, listening to the birds singing, joining my voice along with theirs – praising our Lord for His awesome goodness! Allowing the wind to lift our praise and adoration heavenward . . . to join up with the very praises around the Throne! I feel my heavy heart begin to lighten. There begins to lift the spirit of heaviness that the enemy tries to burden me with – he is NOT successful – for he is a defeated foe – I have my armor on and I’m ready for battle!
From my heart, I breath deeply and declare that “Holiness is what I long for, holiness is what I need.” I proclaim that I am walking with my Lord and that I will “Trust and Obey.” I sing forth my “Victory in Jesus”, and “Power in The Blood”, and how “There is a Redeemer!” How sweet it is to “Trust in Jesus.” song after song, after song, after song, old, new . . . the hours passed by so quickly that I did not even realize it. I do not wish to leave, yet I want to share it with the world. I want others to enter in with me, because no matter what the day brings, no matter what the doctors say, no matter what the bills look like, no matter what anyone has done to you . . . God’s love “never fails, never gives up, never runs out!”
Oh, even if you don’t feel like it, reach down inside of yourself – and start SINGING! Even if you can’t carry a tune – sing from your heart, from your spirit – allow your spirit to commune with the Lover of your soul . . . get lost in Him . . . He’ll prepare you for the battle (which, by the way, He has already won!)
You know, I have to shake my head at the devil. You would think he would learn after all of these years that we are getting stronger. Maturing into the Bride that Christ is returning for. We are learning how to use our weapons of warfare – how to stand firm against him and his minions. How to live with a heart of worship, praise and adoration even in the midst of heartache and trials. I mean, how dumb can he be?! It amazes me.
