I heard, “The Chosen — you are His elite Warriors, because you have been through some stuff!”
Just as Special Forces get extra and intense training, so have His Elite Warriors been through some very hard circumstances.
God Himself did not bring these things to you, but God brought you through it and what the enemy did not know was that through these trying times, a Mighty Warrior was born.
And not just any warrior, but an ELITE WARRIOR. “For many are called, but few are chosen.” If you are reading this, you are one. 🙂
“Beloved. Well done, My good and faithful servant. You are My Chosen, My Elite Warrior raised up for such a time as this.
Many gave up along the way, but you did not give up. You did not lose your faith in Your Commander but you obeyed.
You obeyed without asking why. You obeyed with tears in your eyes and pain in your heart. Still, you trusted. Even faced with death, you marched on.
You have walked by the Spirit and not the flesh. To you are given the most difficult missions. You have been an example to others for they see your faith even in the midst of dire circumstances.
They marvel that you keep using your supernatural weapons of warfare. Even when you don’t see the miracle, you fight on, knowing that faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
I have set you before men. I know you have some battle scars. But here is what makes you Elite. You kept going. You kept believing. You kept praising and worshiping.
You are the Special Forces of the Spirit. I have a crown waiting for you, My Child. It is the Crown of the Overcomer.
Fear not what may come against you. Your Commander is with you. Keep following, Beloved. You have the enemy in confusion! He does not understand FAITH. The victory is yours.
In all these things you overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loves you. You are My Elite, who keep My deeds until the end, and to you I will give authority over the nations!
ELITE : The choice or best of anything considered collectively, as of a group or class of persons. A group of persons exercising the major share of authority or influence within a larger group.
SPECIAL FORCES : (Military) elite, highly trained military forces, specially selected to work on difficult missions
“But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us,” Romans 8:37.
“You are from God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world,” 1 John 4:4.
“He who overcomes, and he who keeps My deeds until the end, to him I will give authority over the nations,” Revelation 2:26.
“And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even when faced with death,” Revelation 12:11.
“For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world — our faith. Who is the one who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?” 1 John 5:4-5.
