The blows of life.
They will come and when they do, they have the ability to knock you down.
But we have Someone who will fight for us. God is our fortress. He is our strong tower. His very name is our defense. He is our shield. He is our protector.
Let the truth of God’s Word be your reminder that in the times of battle, you are not alone. Let His Word remind you that you will win! In Christ Jesus there is victory no matter what you are facing.
Take time to read, meditate and speak God’s Word over your situation. This beloved, is your weapon.
You have the victory!

“Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.” Ephesians 6:11-17

He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart…” Psalm 91:1-4
