Preparing You For BattleMy child, I have called you to be a warrior in my army. I have called you to tear down the plans of the enemy and set my plan in motion instead. However, to be as effective as possible to do this, you need to be trained to fight and to go into war. Without you even realizing it, I have been training you to be the warrior that my army needs.
In every correction you are given, every challenge from co-workers, every fight with your friends, every accusation from your family, each of these things are preparing you to stand strong on the front lines of battle. Each challenge you face is equipping you to be a warrior that defeats the enemy, instead of one that the enemy defeats.
So rejoice when you are corrected, when you are chiseled, when you are frustrated, and someone calls you on it. In these times, my hand is shaping you. I am calling you on those things that take your eyes off the vision. I am calling you on those things that stop you from realizing that you are at war with the enemy and not with those around you.
My Church, for far too long, has been taken out by the enemy in sickness, accidents, shootings, etc. Yet, I am raising a breed of warriors that will know how to withstand the enemy's attacks and come out victorious. You, my child, are one of my warriors. Trust me. I have arranged these circumstances in your life because I am making you battle ready, says the Lord.
