Truth, His Word is within the forefront of our minds, and it is sealed within our hands while we manifest His glory in all that our Shepherd leads us to do, and think. With each moment, as He has brought us into a deeper relationship with Him, He has clearly shown us that we certainly do live in a battle while we dwell here on earth. However, His death on the beloved cross has ensured that we actively know and also dwell within His conquering victory despite what we may physically see, hear, and even experience. His truth will never be removed from us because He actively dwells within us. Yes, although painful in the flesh, there certainly is a uniquely, unfailing beauty when everything of the flesh openly exposes and boldly reminds us: Our trust and hope can only be in God, the Great I Am, the Creator of ALL things, Who has even ensured that we intimately know the ending from the beginning. Our trust is not in this world, where the anti-christ spirit is currently gaining in momentum with each passing year, and has been for quite some time. ‘Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world. They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the Spirit of Truth, and the spirit of error.’ (1 John 4:4-6) The Holy Spirit passionately safeguards us as we actively dwell in this world while King Jesus intimately shepherds us, which strengthens us to not allow what we don’t know, nor understand, to falter our steps, nor to even put a crack within our trust and faith in our Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ. We are intimately led by our King Shepherd as Abba instills His Truth into us through each and every situation, circumstance, experience, and even during when we are completely at rest and asleep at night. Yes, it is very painful to physically watch God’s principles and passionate Love to be so easily disregarded, but our Creator, has created ALL things, and is above ALL and can never be defeated. ‘Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with Truth, and having on the Breastplate of Righteousness; and your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the Helmet of Salvation, and the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God: praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; and for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.’ (Ephesians 6:10-20) Praise King Jesus, our Shepherd, our Prince of Peace, has conquered all things of the flesh and securely holds us from now and on into eternity!
