refuge and strength on the front line
Retreat to the King!
Retreat and find rest.
Retreat and still your soul.
He will pick up your burden.
He will fight for your honor.
He will surround you with His shield and equip you with His sword.
For He loves you most.
Be still in His love.
Pause and be renewed by His grace.
Retreat and breathe in His breath until you are replenished and ready to stand once again.
His victorious kingdom comes.
His eternal will is done.
And in His Name you can stand strong.
You can live secure atop this very soil, Believer.
Because the Messiah has won the war!
Because He began a good work in you and will carry it on to completion.
Because He will lift you up out if this pit and share the blessings of His holiness forever!
Get up and rejoice!
Get up and stand tall in confidence... in the position the Lord God has put you.
Get up and stand firmly upon the solid ground of His unbreakable promises.
Yes, rise up and live boldly;
Strong and courageous;
For this is the day that He has made for you to live fully... healthy... holy.
No matter where life finds you this hour, rejoice!
For Jesus' fruitful life is yours to claim right here, right now!
Hallelujah to the King!
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.
Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. (Ephesians 6:10-11)
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. (Psalm 46:1)
