You have you realized how powerful you are? Not because of the volume of your voice, the number of times you fast, or the hours you spend in prayer. You are most powerful when you fully believe in my love for you.
You are unbeatable when you fight from a posture of rest. The weapons of your warfare are powerful through me, through your unshakable confidence of your position in me. When you’re fully convinced in my love and understand my character, fear won’t push you to react. Instead, you will respond with faith.
You will believe I am who I say I am.
You will find that place of stillness that contradicts warfare, when you trust my love for you. You are powerful when you believe that I am aware of the battle and am fighting for you and alongside you.
Rest is one of your most powerful weapons because it reveals the absence of fear in you. Out of the place of rest, I reveal, through peace, exactly what you need to do or what you don’t need to do.
Find your strength in the place of intimacy with me.
