Beloved. I know the attacks of the evil one which you have endured. I know your case and your distress.
Though he seizes you and tries to hold on to you, I AM the Breaker and I have broken his power over you. I AM the same, yesterday, today and forever. I have not left you, Dear One.
Listen not to the voices of fear and mistrust. For I AM worthy of your trust. I AM He who is faithful and true, your Beloved Bridegroom and Protector. I shall cause you to stand and be victorious in the presence of your enemies. I shall deal righteously with you and you shall be My mouthpiece. Think not that the enemy has the upper hand.
I hold you in MY Hand. I have redeemed you by the Blood of the Lamb. I rescue you from those too strong for you and from those who rob you. I make you like a fortified wall of bronze; and though the enemy fights against you, they will not prevail over you.
“For I AM with you to save you and deliver you,” declares the LORD. I delivered you from the hand of evil, and I redeemed you from the grasp of the violent one. Though the enemy confronts you in the day of calamity, I AM your stay. Your King goes before you, the LORD at your head. I have placed your feet upon My Rock, and you shall not be moved.
STAY: make strong and steady; a rope or wire used to steady or brace something; to secure upright, to provide physical or moral support for; sustain; to cause to stand upright.
“The Breaker goes up before them; They break out, pass through the gate and go out by it. So their King goes on before them, And the LORD at their head,” Micah 2:13.
“He sent from on high, He took me; He drew me out of many waters. He delivered me from my strong enemy, And from those who hated me, for they were too mighty for me. They confronted me in the day of my calamity, But the LORD was my stay. He brought me forth also into a large place; He delivered me, because He delighted in me,” Psalm 18:16-19.
“My whole being will exclaim, “Who is like you, LORD? You rescue the poor from those too strong for them, the poor and needy from those who rob them,” Psalm 35:10.
“Then I will make you to this people a fortified wall of bronze; and though they fight against you, They will not prevail over you; For I am with you to save you and deliver you,” declares the LORD. “So I will deliver you from the hand of the wicked, And I will redeem you from the grasp of the violent,” Jeremiah 15:20-21.
