I declare this day that you are a strong people, My Mighty Army. Though the song of the ruthless is deafening at times, I am singing a song of VICTORY over My Warrior Bride.
I AM a Defense for the helpless and the needy.
I AM your Refuge from the storm and your Shade from the heat. You dwell in the Secret Place of the Most High I will keep you safe, Beloved.
I AM closer than the shade at your right hand.
I AM your Shield and the Lifter of your head. Listen NOT to the uproar of your enemies. The breath of the enemy shall be like a rain storm against a wall. I silence the dirge of those who rise against you. The song of the ruthless shall be silenced.
The LORD your God in the midst of you is Mighty; My Joyous Song shall cause you to TRIUMPH over ALL the power of the enemy!
“The LORD your God in the midst of you is mighty; He will save, He will rejoice over you with joy; He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with loud singing,” Zephaniah 3:17.
“LORD, how are they increased that trouble me! many are they that rise up against me. Many there be who say of my soul, There is no help for him in God. But you, O LORD, are a shield for me; my glory, and the Lifter up of my head. I cried unto the LORD with my voice, and He heard me out of His holy hill. I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the LORD sustained me,” Psalm 3:1-5.
“Therefore a strong people will glorify You; Cities of the ruthless nations will revere You. For You have been a defense for the helpless, A defense for the needy in his distress, A refuge from the storm, a shade from the heat; For the breath of the ruthless Is like a rain storm against a wall. Like heat in drought, You subdue the uproar of aliens; Like heat by the shadow of a cloud, the song of the ruthless is silenced,” Isaiah 25:3-5.
