Forever I will be your Father, and you shall be My child. When I breathed life into your nostrils, My life brought you forth to work in My Kingdom of light. Darkness was never part of your makeup. The enemy came, and he stole, but he could not kill nor destroy anyone of My creations.
Walk with your head held high, and never for one instance give into the snare of the fowler. He has no power nor authority over any of My children. Do you have to fight? Yes! But I have promised you eternal life in My Kingdom. I will be with you in the lowest valley, and I will be with you on the highest mountain top.
2 Corinthians 11:22-28 (NKJV)
22 Are they Hebrews? So am I. Are they Israelites? So am I. Are they the seed of Abraham? So am I. 23 Are they ministers of Christ?–I speak as a fool–I am more: in labors more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequently, in deaths often. 24 From the Jews five times I received forty stripes minus one. 25 Three times I was beaten with rods; once I was stoned; three times I was shipwrecked; a night and a day I have been in the deep; 26 in journeys often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils of my own countrymen, in perils of the Gentiles, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren; 27 in weariness and toil, in sleeplessness often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness– 28 besides the other things, what comes upon me daily: my deep concern for all the churches.
