I see a line of weary warriors slowing walking down a lonely road. Their heads are down, as if in defeat. I see arrows sticking out of their armor.
Suddenly the Lion of the Tribe of Judah begins to roar over them. A whirlwind of rainbow light swirls around each warrior from head to toe, dislodging every arrow from its place.
They are gently picked up and placed back on their feet. New strength is being poured into them and every wound is healed. Don’t give up, Child of God.
The LORD is a shield around you, your Glory, and the Lifter of your head. Do not be afraid, or panic, or tremble before the powers of darkness, for the LORD your God is the One who goes with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.
Hear the sound of the Lion of Judah. See the fear in the enemy’s camp. Rise up, Beloved One, in the power of His might. Victory belongs to you. The Lord is leading you in His triumphal procession.
You are MORE than a conqueror through Him who loves you!
