You are in the valley and you see the enemy. He carries weight that is not his own hiding behind authority, force and a shield. Covered in armor and preceded by a shield bearer announcing who he is.
"Do you not know who I am?"
He shouts arrogantly and tries to intimidate us. He questions our strength because all he sees is our frail figure. He shouts his credential to frighten us. A bully in the valley.
"Don't you know who my Father is?"
His haughtiness will be his downfall.
He sees a feeble shadow. He should look closer for I am filled with the Spirit of the Lord!
I don't need man-made armor for my Father dresses me. "The weapons I fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds."
(2 Corinthians 10:4)
The enemy's defiance rises and he tries to terrify me.
(1 Samuel 17:26b)
"Do you not know the battle is already won?"
"What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us,who can be against us?" (Romans 8:31)
I see a defeated foe in the valley of Victory!
God bless you!~Liz
