Not Today!

I do not want to leave you guys high and dry today, but I am in need of some alone time with God. When we have done all to stand ...that is when the rubber hits the road in testing us. Do we cave in and quit as all the forces of Hell seem to be pummeling us or do we pick up our armor and say "You will not win, Oh heavy spirit of burden; Not Today!

I wrote this a few years ago when I was going through some similar, yet far more strenuous battles. I thought it was a good time to remind myself....and a good time to share.

You will not win, oh heavy spirit of burden "Not Today!"
Today, I fight!
Today ,I fight the good fight,
Today ,I fight the righteous fight.
Today, I overcome,
Today, I lead in battle,
Today, my strongholds are broken,
Today, my spirit stands true
Today, I hear your voice,
        and today your victory is true
Today, I fight for YOU!

Isaiah 42
This is what the LORD God says: I, the LORD, have called you to do what is right.I will take hold of your hand.I will protect you.I will appoint you as my promise to the people, You will give sight to the blind,bring prisoners out of prisons,and bring those who live in darkness out of dungeons.  I am the LORD; that is my name.I will not give my glory to anyone else or the praise I deserve to idols.  What I said in the past has come true. I will reveal new things before they happen.
