“Beloved. Many are the arrows aimed at My Warriors. Many are the hurts you have suffered, even in the house of your “friends.”
Know this, Dear One. I AM well acquainted with your griefs and sorrows and your rejection.
I know what it is like when men hide their faces from you and pretend you are not there.
I know what it is like to be despised. They looked upon Me with indifference as they look upon you, My Child.
They judge you by the outward appearance and esteem you not, just as they did your Savior.
But know this, My Child. The Son was rejected so that you are accepted in the Beloved. I AM He who will NEVER leave nor forsake you.
I AM a Shield for you which absorbs every fiery dart of the enemy. My Holy Presence in you is a Shield of Light scattering every spirit of darkness to the Winds.
No longer allow the weapons of rejection and fear to pierce your soul. I AM a Shield about you, your Glory, and the One who lifts your head.
NO weapon formed against you shall prosper, My Warrior Bride. You are NOT powerless, My Love, oh no!
Let not the tribulations of this world overcome you, but My Over Conquering Love for you shall make you TRIUMPHANT over all the hurtful arrows of the enemy.
They shall fall to the ground harmless. They shall not hit their mark. Fear not, My Mighty Warrior.
In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I HAVE OVERCOME the world.
I AM your Shield and Helper and your Glorious Sword. Your enemies will cower before you, and you will tread upon their heights.”
