Spiritual Fortitude in Battle
My Child, I am working within you spiritual fortitude that you may stand in these times; indeed, the days are evil, and you are in a battle. I desire that you be strong in Me, which requires My Spirit working within you, bringing transformation from the inside out. I never said that My work in you would be easily borne. I did promise that I would be with you always. I did promise that I would refine you and discipline you. Why do you marvel that I am doing exactly as I said I would? If you are going to walk according to My Word, you must expect that there will be separation from what is of the world and entering into what is of the Kingdom. My Child, fortitude is preceded by decisiveness. You must decide whom you will serve and make the choice to quit looking back. You must learn to wield the weapons of your warfare decisively and accurately. If you will allow Me to work in you, you will overcome.
Joshua 24:22-24, “So Joshua said to the people, ‘You are witnesses against yourselves that you have chosen the LORD for yourselves, to serve Him.’ And they said, ‘We are witnesses!’ ‘Now therefore,’ he said, ‘put away the foreign gods which are among you, and incline your heart to the LORD God of Israel.’ And the people said to Joshua, ‘The Lord our God we will serve, and His voice we will obey!’’ Eph. 6:13, “Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”
