Rise up My Bride, rise up, arise!
It is time to shake off the dust of the previous season’s warfare.
It’s time to stand tall against the enemy’s assaults.
For I have undergirded you and upheld you, as you have counted the cost. No longer vagabonds, no longer slaves, but a royal priesthood, with governmental grace. Your words are sharp and powerful, when in tune and in time with My sound. Be as a skilful warrior, equipped and able to stand.
Fix your gaze heavenward and watch for my word and My commands. Walk in step with My Spirit, as I cause you to inherit the land.
For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?”Esther 4:14 (NIV)
33 He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; He causes me to stand on the heights.
34 He trains my hands for battle; my arms can bend a bow of bronze.Psalm 18:33-34 (NIV)
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.1 Peter 2:19 (NIV)
