I was staring at this picture the other day and felt the presence of the Lord. And then He gave me the following Word....
Become like a child, armed with the Sword of the Spirit and see what God will do. For even the tiniest hand when thusly armed with the full knowledge of God is able to slay the greatest dragon. The tiniest face lifted toward Heaven, eyes locked on Jesus causes all of Hell to tremble. For it is not the size of the person nor the monsters they face that determine the outcome. It is the might and glory of the God that stands behind them. It is HIS Power and HIS ability upon which all things rest. How can we question how things will end for us when we look and see all that He has already done? So pick up your sword little one. Stop questioning whether or not your hand is large enough to grasp the hilt. Stop disqualifying yourself based on size or stature. Take it in hand regardless of your doubts and look up. See Who is standing beside you. See the love in His eyes. See the joyful pride as He lays His hand on your tiny shoulder and know... That as He walks by your side "no weapon formed against you shall prosper." For you are His beloved.
"But for you who revere My Name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings. And you will go out and leap like calves released from the stall. Then you will trample down the wicked; they will be ashes under the soles of your feet." Malachi 4:2-3
In this time of great opposition it is important to remember. Pick up your sword. (Photography by Davy Desmond)
