“Staring down the face of fear, gotta keep breathing. When the negative is all you hear, gotta keep believing. ‘Cause in the dark there is a light. Your truth, it keeps on burning bright, makes me brave enough to fight the fight and shout the battle cry. You’ll never stop me; I’m a warrior. When I fall down I get stronger. Faith is my shield and his love is my armor… I will keep hope alive. I will find the strength inside. I will survive. I’m a warrior.”
In this world full of negative, our battle cry needs to be: I will follow my unstoppable God! He is the light that burns in the darkness. He is the one who helps us to be brave enough to fight the fight. He is the one who gives us hope to carry on, when we are at the end of ourselves. So, what can we do to prepare for the everyday battles of life? We can put on the shield of unstoppable faith! We can trust in his unstoppable love! God IS our rock and our salvation. He is the winner of battles, the unstoppable warrior who triumphs in the end. Let’s be warriors in his army—unstoppable because He is unstoppable!
Ephesians 6: 10, 11, 14-16 “Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes…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.”
