If you could see Who resides in you, Beloved, you would never feel afraid or defeated again. The God of the whole universe dwells in your heart.
Remember this, My Child, when it looks as though the devil is winning in your life. The evil one also thought he had won at the Cross. But oh, how he was proven wrong. For what he saw as a victory turned out to be his biggest defeat.
And so shall it be in your life, Beloved. Oh yes, every defeat shall become a testimony of victory. Do not faint, My Child, for you shall see My Goodness in the land of the living.
I AM turning your sorrow into joy and your mourning into dancing. Your sighs shall become shouts of joy. You are in a triumphal procession with Me with all the powers of darkness looking on.
And so shall it always be, Dear One. I AM leading you in My victory parade with thousands upon thousands of angels accompanying us. The gates of hell shall not prevail against you and no power of darkness can ever stop what I have ordained.
“The chariots of God are twenty thousand, even thousands of angels: the Lord is among them, as in Sinai, in the holy place. You have ascended on high, You have led captivity captive: You have received gifts for men; yea, for the rebellious also, that the LORD God might dwell among you. Blessed be the Lord, who daily loads us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah,” Psalm 68:17-19.
“Who has gone up to heaven and come down? Whose Hands have gathered up the wind? Who has wrapped up the waters in a cloak? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is His name, and what is the name of His Son? Surely you know!” Proverbs 30:4.
“But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ’s gift. Therefore it says, “WHEN HE ASCENDED ON HIGH, HE LED CAPTIVE A HOST OF CAPTIVES, AND HE GAVE GIFTS TO MEN.” Now this expression, “He ascended,” what does it mean except that He also had descended into the lower parts of the earth?”Ephesians 4:7-9.
“But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession, and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of him everywhere,”2 Corinthians 2:14.
“You have turned my mourning into joyful dancing. You have taken away my clothes of mourning and clothed me with joy,” Psalm 30:11.
“but thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast,immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord,” 1 Corinthians 15:57-58.
“No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loves us,” Romans 8:37.
