I heard this song waking up, “A Mighty Fortress is our God, a Bulwark never failing.”
And I saw Jesus as a Strong Tower, our Refuge and Strength, the Secret Place of Psalm 91. The Holy One is your Safe Place.
“Beloved. Nothing has changed for you, Dear One. The events on earth do not determine Heaven’s Plans. Heaven’s Plans have been set from before the foundations of the earth.
I have a War Room. Though the ancient foe seeks to spread chaos and hate, I have overcome him at The Cross. I AM the Chief Strategist. The enemy has been defeated.
I AM still your Strong Tower, your Mighty Fortress, a Bulwark NEVER failing. Look up once again, My Child.
My Kingdom is forever. You are a citizen of Heaven and not earth. Do not look around you anxiously, but keep your eyes upon Jesus.
I AM the same yesterday, today, and forever. The LORD of Hosts is My Name. You have a mission here on earth, My Warrior. One message only you carry, the gospel of Grace and Peace.
Blessed are the Peacemakers for they shall be called the Sons and Daughters of God. You are My Glory Carriers. My Holiness is where you dwell in safety.
You have been born for such a time as this. Let not your heart be troubled. Be anxious for nothing — but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to your Abba Father.
And My Shalom Peace, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your heart and your mind in Christ Jesus. Fear not. Hate will not overcome the Love of God, Beloved.
The earth is The LORD’s and the fullness thereof. For this reason was the Son of God manifested, to destroy the works of the devil.
Remember, My Warrior. You wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Don’t forget who I AM and who you are in Me, My Child. My Plans and My Strategies shall stand forever.
I AM He declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things not yet done, saying, ‘My counsel shall stand, and I will accomplish all My Purpose.
Be confident of this: many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of The LORD that will stand.
Do not let your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. The Name of The LORD is a Strong Tower; the Righteous run to it and are safe!
My counsel stands forever, the plans of My Heart to all generations.”
“He who dwells in the Secret Place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of The LORD, “He is my Refuge and my Fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.”” Psalm 91:1-2.
“My God is my Rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation. My Stronghold, my Refuge, and my Savior, You save me from violence.” 2 Samuel 22:3.
“The name of The LORD is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.” Proverbs 18:10.
“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4: 6-7.
“Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things not yet done, saying,‘My counsel shall stand, and I will accomplish all My purpose.” Isaiah 46:10.
“The counsel of The LORD stands forever, the plans of His heart to all generations.” Psalm 33:11.
“Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of The LORD that will stand.” Proverbs 19:21.
“He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.” 1 John 3:8.
A Mighty Fortress Is Our God
A Bulwark never failing;
Our helper He, amid the flood of mortal ills prevailing:
For still our ancient foe doth seek to work us woe;
His craft and power are great, and, armed with cruel hate,
On earth is not his equal.
Did we in our own strength confide, our striving would be losing;
Were not the right Man on our side, the Man of God’s own choosing:
Dost ask who that may be? Christ Jesus, it is He;
Lord Sabaoth, His Name, from age to age the same,
And He must win the battle.
And though this world, with devils filled, should threaten to undo us,
We will not fear, for God hath willed His truth to triumph through us:
The Prince of Darkness grim, we tremble not for him;
His rage we can endure, for lo, his doom is sure,
One little word shall fell him.
That word above all earthly powers, no thanks to them, abideth;
The Spirit and the gifts are ours through Him Who with us sideth:
Let goods and kindred go, this mortal life also;
The body they may kill: God’s truth abideth still,
His kingdom is forever.”
Song : A Mighty Fortress is our God, Matt Boswell.
“Wonderful, glorious, holy, and righteous
Victorious, conqueror, triumphant and Mighty
Healer, deliverer, shield and defense
STRONG TOWER and my best friend
Soon coming King
Alpha, omega, Lord of everything
Holy, holy, holy is Your name.”
Song : Lord, You are Holy by Karen Wheaton
