Many of My Children feel weak and helpless. The attacks of the enemy seemingly have left holes in your heart. You feel deeply wounded.
But I AM the Healer of the brokenhearted, Beloved. You are made WHOLE at the Cross by the Blood of the Lamb. You are born again by the Spirit. No more will the enemy be able to penetrate and hurt your heart.
For I have wrapped you in My Righteousness as fine linen. You are wrapped securely in My Love as a tiny baby is wrapped in swaddling clothes to make him feel safe and secure.
My Resurrection Power dwells in your heart, My Child. My Son was wrapped with linen in His birth and death so that you would be wrapped in My CLEAN FINE LINEN of LIFE.
NOTHING shall be able to penetrate it! You are protected from the fiery darts of the enemy. You shall speak with AUTHORITY from your heart, and the enemy shall FLEE! Be of good courage, Beloved, for I AM strengthening your heart.
You shall walk BOLDLY in this world and the darkness shall NOT be able to overcome you!
