It’s not by might. It’s not by power. It’s by your Spirit. You said so! It’s not in anything that we have done. It’s by everything that you have done. It’s not the words that we form. It’s your Word that lives within us. It’s not that we follow man’s ideas or theories. It’s that we follow and cling to your Word. Jesus is the Word! He is the way. He is the truth. He is the life.
O LORD of the heavens and the earth! It’s your power that give us the authority to trample down this wickedness and perversion. It’s your power that gives us the authority to pull down these demonic strongholds. It’s your power that causes blinded eyes to be opened and the dead to rise. Resurrect those dead in spirit! Resurrect those wallowing in grief and hopelessness. Resurrect those who have given up and given in.
We will NOT give in! We will not give up! Your Word says! NEVER GIVE UP! But we will give it all to you, Jesus! We trust you. We will stand on your Word. Our spirits are being renewed. Every day! O LORD! Come and renew us like the spring rains. Renew our bodies, spirits and minds. Renew our hearts. Make us new. Strengthen us in the battle! Give us extraordinary, overflowing power! Hallelujah!
“Therefore, since God in his mercy has given us this new way, we NEVER GIVE UP. We reject all shameful deeds and underhanded methods. We don’t try to trick anyone or distort the word of God. We tell the truth before God, and all who are honest know this.”
2 Corinthians 4:1-2
We stand on your Word as your humble servants. Looking to you and you alone. You will not forsake us. You will not turn your back on your own. We feel the pressure from the enemy. But YOU are our SHIELD! You have the power and the authority. We may be common man but you are glorious in every way. You are our Father. We are your chosen children. We are your remnant.
“We are like common clay jars that carry this glorious treasure within, so that the extraordinary overflow of power will be seen as God’s, not ours. Though we experience every kind of pressure, we’re not crushed. At times we don’t know what to do, but QUITTING IS NOT AN OPTION. We are persecuted by others, but God has not forsaken us. We may be knocked down, but not out.”
2 Corinthians 4:7-9
You said. WALK BY FAITH! So we will. We live by believing and not seeing. We will see the goodness of the LORD. We declare! America is not lost. We declare! The Nations are not lost. Spirit of God! Remove the veil from the people’s eyes so they can see the truth. Give them ears to hear. Shine your glorious light and dispel the darkness. EXPOSE the wicked. REVEAL the truth!
We believe your Word. We believe the prophets. We must not stand in doubt! WE FIX OUR GAZE ON WHAT WE CANNOT SEE! We fix our eyes on Jesus. The author and the finisher of our FAITH. He started it and he will complete it. He is the all time undefeated champion. He has already defeated this demonic, wicked, perverse, deceptive, lying, manipulative enemy that has infiltrated the camp.
Therefore! We never give up! We take our stand. We put on the Armor of God and hold the line. It’s not over yet! We will never give up because quitting is not an option!
In Jesus name. Amen and amen.
