Day 151

CHIEF COMMANDER
OF HIS ARMY

The Lord thunders at the head of his army;
his forces are beyond number,
and mighty are those who obey his command.
Joel 2:11

 

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, did you know I recruited you into My army because of the awesome potential I saw in you? As with Gideon, I recognized you as a "mighty one of valor." When you follow Me and pay close attention to My commands, together we can make an invincible team against the enemy. There are times I may ask you to stand still and let Me fight for you. And at other times, I will give you precise instructions as an enlisted soldier. Trust My words. I am your chief commander and will always bring victory.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
Lord, in every battle I've ever faced, You've been there as my chief commander. At times I've gone AWOL, cowering under the pressure of my enemy. When I followed Your leadership, sweet victory always came. In spite of my failures, You reward me with the medal of honor: Your unconditional love.

SIMPLE TRUTH

God's Word is our weapon; His Spirit is our sword.
