is saying...You are on a winning streak, do not stop or become
discouraged by the enemy's lies, keep going forward and do
not turn back. The arrows have been often and consistently
shot against you, there has been much crossfire. Yet I have
not allowed the weapons formed against you to prosper but
have broken each arrow in its turn. I do not want you to be
deterred or to cower but to walk forward knowing that I am
your shield and protector and that I will not fail you. I
will deal with your opponents as you walk in my presence.
So do not hang your head down as though you are a victim or
ashamed. You are pleasing in my sight, a blood-washed child
of mine. Look up and walk on trusting in my unfailing love.
I am for you and not against you. I am with you in all these
trials and have already overcome everyone of them. Stand tall,
Oh Child of God and walk with me.
they shall surely gather together, but not by me: whosoever
shall gather together against thee shall fall for thy sake.
Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in
the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work;
and I have created the waster to destroy. No weapon that is
formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall
rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is
the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness
is of me, saith the LORD. Isaiah 54:15,16,17
shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can
be against us? He that spared not his own Son, but delivered
him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give
us all things? Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's
elect? It is God that justifieth. Who is he that condemneth?
It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who
is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession
for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall
tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness,
or peril, or sword? ........Nay, in all these things we are
more than conquerors through him that loved us. Romans 8:31-35
OVERCOMING TEMPTATION - Shirley's note
is a scripture that reads "Let the word of Christ dwell
in you richly in all wisdom" I hadn't seen this scripture
before yet it was lightened up to me when I had just found
a weapon in my armoury I didn't know I had.
had been trying to believe a promise that was constantly being
attacked by the enemy. I had tried to walk on it, proclaim
it, stand on it, yet still felt the fear in me, and the darkness
of the lies of the enemy were so easy to believe. But then
I found, when I decided to fully believed the Word of God
, and to repent of the sin of disbelief, that the word was
in me, a promise from God, that what I had dreaded
had not happened and would not happen. This word in me was
right in the pit of my stomach replacing the fear that had
dwelt there, now a sensation of the love of God that had given
me this promise.
found that later when I was attacked in this area again, I
had only to locate that word in me and that feeling of peace
and assurance that God would keep His promise was right there
in me. It needed some nurturing, and attention and for me
to focus on it and let it reign instead of the fear. It was
an active decision not to analyse with my peanut brain, but
to rest on this assurance within me. The word then became
bigger inside of me, radiating out and evicting the lies of
the enemy. I was able then to act out and walk in the light
of the truth and the blood of Jesus was cleansing me from
all sin, and yes what followed was fellowship with the one
the accuser had been accusing in my mind..
we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship
one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his son cleanseth
us from all sin. I John 1:7
light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single,
thy whole body shall be full of light; but if thine eye be
evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore
the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!'Mat.

"All is well."
With silent surrender to the dawn,
The melody-enriched lark song
finds a heart,
A heart to listen with intensity
of feeling in a rare and splendid moment of adjulating
Where eye seeks eye and handclasp
is desired above all else,
When gentle mists of love
embrace the secret garden of the heart where the
tenderest emotions abide and have their being,and
the golden awakening of friendship is established
Here is a place where no fear
treads the boards,
where trust in it's magnitude is reclaimed and a
new utterance breaks through the darkness, echoing
the thoughts of freedom, that
"all is well".
