“the lord is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation; this is my God, and I will praise him; my father’s God and I will exalt him. “the lord is a warrior; the Lord is his name.

The lord is my revelation-light to guide me along the way; he’s the source of my salvation to defend me every day. I fear no one! I’ll never turn back and run from you, Lord; surround and protect me. when evil ones come to destroy me, they will be the ones who turn back. my heart will not be afraid even if an army rises to attack. I know that you are there for me, so I will not be shaken.

look! here comes lord Yahweh as a victorious warrior; he triumphs with his awesome power.o, watch as he brings with him his reward and the spoils of victory to give to his people. he will care for you as a shepherd tends his flock, gathering the weak lambs and taking them in his arms. he carries them close to his heart and gently leads those that have young.
don’t you know? haven’t you been listening? Yahweh is the one and only everlasting God, the creator of all you can see and imagine! he never gets weary or worn out. his intelligence is unlimited; he is never puzzled over what to do! he empowers the feeble and infuses the powerless with increasing strength. even young people faint and get exhausted; athletic ones may stumble and fall. but those who wait for Yahweh’s grace will experience divine strength. they will rise up on soaring wings and fly like eagles, run their race without growing weary, and walk through life without giving up.
now, this is what Yahweh says: “listen, Jacob, to the one who created you, Israel, to the one who shaped who you are. do not fear, for I, your kinsman-redeemer will rescue you. I have called you by name, and you are mine. when you pass through the deep, stormy sea, you can count on me to be there with you. when you pass through raging rivers, you will not drown. when you walk through persecution like fiery flames, you will not be burned; the flames will not harm you

2 Corinthians 4:16-18
so no wonder we don’t give up. for even though our outer person gradually wears out, our inner being is renewed every single day. we view our slight, short-lived troubles in the light of eternity. we see our difficulties as the substance that produces for us an eternal, weighty glory far beyond all comparison because we don’t focus our attention on what is seen but on what is unseen. for what is seen is temporary, but the unseen realm is eternal.
2 Corinthians 12:9-10
But he answered me, “my grace is always more than enough for you, and my power finds its full expression through your weakness.” so I will celebrate my weaknesses, for when I’m weak I sense more deeply the mighty power of Christ living in me. so I’m not defeated by my weakness, but delighted! for when I feel my weakness and endure mistreatment—when I’m surrounded with troubles on every side and face persecution because of my love for christ—I am made yet stronger. for my weakness becomes a portal to God’s power.
And I pray that he would unveil within you the unlimited riches of his glory and favor until supernatural strength floods your innermost being with his divine might and explosive power. 17 then, by constantly using your faith, the life of Christ will be released deep inside you, and the resting place of his love will become the very source and root of your life.
now my beloved ones, I have saved these most important truths for last: Be supernaturally infused with strength through your life-union with the lord Jesus. stand victorious with the force of his explosive power flowing in and through you.
don’t be pulled in different directions or worried about a thing. be saturated in prayer throughout each day, offering your faith-filled requests before God with overflowing gratitude. tell him every detail of your life, then God’s wonderful peace that transcends human understanding will make the answers known to you through Jesus christ.
I know what it means to lack, and I know what it means to experience overwhelming abundance. for I’m trained in the secret of overcoming all things, whether in fullness or in hunger. and I find that the strength of christ’s Explosive Power Infuses Me To Conquer Every Difficulty.

so consider carefully how Jesus faced such intense opposition from sinners who opposed their own souls so that you won’t become worn down and cave in under life’s pressures.
1 Peter 5:7-10
pour out all your worries and stress upon him and leave them there, for he always tenderly cares for you. be well balanced and always alert, because your enemy, the devil, roams around incessantly, like a roaring lion looking for its prey to devour. take a decisive stand against him and resist his every attack with strong, vigorous faith. for you know that your believing brothers and sisters around the world are experiencing the same kinds of troubles you endure. and then, after your brief suffering, the God of all loving grace, who has called you to share in his eternal glory in Christ, will personally and powerfully restore you and make you stronger than ever. yes, he will set you firmly in place and build you up.
