Lord Jesus, you are my hero and my biggest cheerleader! This morning, after dreams filled with evil attacks of the enemy in undaunted wrath, I heard you declare, “Watch Daisy plough right through them!” I held onto that joyful proclamation, Jesus! And I want to hold onto it forever! You have given me power over my enemies! Thank you!
“I myself have commanded my consecrated ones, and have summoned my mighty men to execute my anger, my proudly exulting ones.”
You have consecrated me by your blood. You have made me and you have blessed me and you have given me your Spirit so that I could overcome my enemies. You’ve already brought ruin upon them, God! You have given me victory over sin and death through Jesus! When he cried out, “It is finished!” it was a cry of victory. No more slavery. No more bondage. No more death. Our lives have been saved! My life has been saved! Sin has no more power over me.
“But thanks be to God, who gives us victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
1 Corinthians 15:57
I can plough right through my enemies! You have given me that power! Your anger is great against your enemies, the Adversary and his minions, and the torment they inflict upon your people. So, you stretched out your hand from Heaven, and offered deliverance for the people. Deliverance from our torment. Deliverance from our fear. I can walk in confidence as a bulldozing tank of your glory because you’ve given me that gift.
You are cheering me on, empowering me through your Spirit, to have victory over my enemies over and over and over again. You defeated our enemies on the cross. You are victorious. So, I put my trust in you, God. I put my hope in your enduring love and faithfulness, because that is who you say you are.
I will open my heart to your voice because it is a battle cry of victory. You are a banner of love and righteousness over my head. You are a my shelter and my comfort. I can trust you and I can fight and win because of you. It’s all about you, Jesus!
“And now my head shall be lifted up,
above my enemies all around me,
and I will offer in his tent
sacrifices with shouts of joy;
I will sing and make melody to the Lord.”
