The Victor’s Proclamation
God, You are my Warrior! The battle is Yours.
You reign. Rule. You are Victor.
You have never lost a battle, are the final word in every conflict, and conquer every foe.
You can deliver with many or with few, bring down a defiant Goliath or strike fear in a hostile army and send it to flight, flatten a walled stronghold or break the fetters off those who are bound.
You are almighty, no one is stronger; You sit upon heaven’s throne, no one is higher; You know all things, no one is wiser. You know exactly what to do and have a perfect strategy—when You move no one can stop You; when You speak no one can silence You; when You use Your two-edged sword no one can disarm You.
I am covered in Your mercies, clothed in Your righteousness, dressed in Your armor. I march under Your banner, wave Your flag, sing Your song, gird myself with Your truth, and abide under the shelter of Your wings.
You are my dwelling place, I am at rest;
You are my hiding place, I am secure;
You are my fortress, I am safe;
You are my tower, I am sheltered;
You are my shield, I am protected.
I advance in Your strength, stand in Your authority, and pray in Your all-conquering name.
Thank You, Mighty God, that the battle, the weapons, the strategy and the victory are all Yours—You are the One who will raise up a standard against the enemy when he comes in like a flood; will not allow any weapon that is formed against me to prosper; will put the enemy to flight—I proclaim it and believe it to be so in the name of Him who is seated at Your right hand—the One who triumphed over sin, death, and the powers of darkness—the One whose blood redeems, whose stripes heal, whose grace sustains, whose hands uphold, and whose love never fails—the King of kings, the name above all names, Jesus Christ the Lord!
'Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.' "Behold, all those who were incensed against you Shall be ashamed and disgraced; They shall be as nothing, And those who strive with you shall perish. You shall seek them and not find them-- Those who contended with you. Those who war against you Shall be as nothing, As a nonexistent thing. For I, the LORD your God, will hold your right hand, Saying to you, 'Fear not, I will help you.' Isaiah 41:10-13 (NKJV)
