Take heart for I have overcome the world. It is time to know that in me, you are more than conquerors. In me you can do all things. Your confidence is in me. It is time to be courageous, my child, my bride, for I need you to rise up to your greatest hour. It is time to fight your adversary who roams around like a lion, looking for who he can devour. But just like I taught David how to kill the bear and lion with his bare hands as preparation to stand and face Goliath, so I have been training you.
Take your stand with weapons in your hand and rise up like David in the camp of the enemy. Declare today: “I come in the name of the Lord!” Put on the cloak of courage that I am bestowing on you; rise up, shine, and take the land I have given you.
Activation: Ask God to show you what your cloak of courage looks like. What colour is it? What texture is it? Are there words written on it? Then ask God what you need to give him or take off before you can put on the cloak of courage. See yourself stand up like David and say to any Goliaths in your life, “I stand in the name of the Lord.”
I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace. In the world you have tribulation and distress and suffering, but be courageous [be confident, be undaunted, be filled with joy]; I have overcome the world [My conquest is accomplished, My victory abiding].John 16:33 (AMP)
But David said to the Philistine, “You come to me with a sword, a spear, and a sabre, but I come to you in the name of the LORD of armies, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.”1 Samuel 17:45 (NASB)
