He Has Girded Me With Strength

For thou hast girded me with strength unto the battle: thou hast subdued under me those that rose up against me. (Psalm 18:39)

You are a warrior for Christ!
Life is full of battles.
In the spiritual and natural realm, we will face opposition and trials.
Forces of the world and kingdom of darkness are restless in their effort to try to pull us away from God.
Thankfully, the Lord has faithfully equipped us with His armor and given every weapon we need to face our enemies!
No matter what we face in life, we know that God goes before us to scope out the battle.
There is no surprising God or catching Him off guard.
This is why even in the midst of warfare, we can place unwavering trust in Him because we know how faithful and reliable He is. 
God knows the battles we will face before they even arrive! When you have God on your side, your victory is already secure! 
For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. (1 John 5:4)
If you’re a child of God and love Jesus, then you already have the victory! The Greek verb tense in this verse for “overcome”, indicates continuous action.
This means we are continually and consistently overcoming the world! Even when you become weary in battle, remind yourself of the God who has endless strength that is on your side fighting for you. Remind yourself of the victory that already belongs to you as a child of God.
As a warrior for Christ, it is important to get in the habit of putting on your armor each day.
Each day, you need to refresh yourself with His word and the spiritual armor that comes with it.
TODAY:  Remember you are a warrior who overcomes the world and all that it throws at you!
Knowing who you are in Christ and that Jesus goes with you into every battle, you can rest assured that you will be victorious! 
“Heavenly Father, thank you that you have armed me with your word and give me the strength to endure every battle! Thank you for going before me and staying by my side. I can rest at ease knowing that I am an overcoming warrior and already have the victory through you! Amen.”
Have a beautiful and uplifting day in The Lord!
