My Child. The enemy has attempted to build strongholds in your mind. Lie upon lie has built a wall of defeat, depression, and despair. You are not a captive there, Beloved. It is only an illusion created by the evil one.
The Power of the Cross has toppled every weighty stone and in its falling, has consumed the enemy in its midst. I came and DESTROYED the works of the devil.
Shout unto your God with the voice of triumph. Whom the Son has set free is free indeed. I am in your midst. You shall not be moved. I shall help you, Beloved, and that right early. I utter My Voice and the earth melts.
I have not given you a spirit of fear, but of love, power and a sound mind. Walk in Me, Dear One. Come out from this cave of darkness fashioned by the enemy’s hand.
You are a Child of Light. Do not fear. I AM your Stronghold. Forever, you reside in the cleft of the Rock.
