you can’t stop me: a manifesto for the enemy of my heart

From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven has suffered violence, and the violent take it by force.
Matthew 11:12


I will not forget that before one of my days came to be, even before earth was spoken, that my God, yes my God, penned the end of this story with the revelation of Jesus Christ to show His servants the things that must take place.
you can’t stop me.
Because
the gates of hell do not prevail, and I will not
take my eyes off the author and perfecter of my salvation, or
build my house on sand, and I refuse to
doubt any letter of God’s holy Word, and agree to
collude with the constant whisper of lies over my life, and I will not
stay content with what this world never stops shoving down my throat, and I’ll be damned if I,
continue to look for quick satisfaction for the empty pockets of my soul, and I will choose not to,
trade my inheritance for a warm bowl of tomato soup, and
worship at the altar of all the idols piled up around my feet, or go on
prostituting my affection for the cheap desires of my flesh.
you can’t stop me.
Because
I will not forget
my God’s softest whisper is greater than your loudest growl and He has never failed to provide for me and mine and His. The enemy that wants to steal, kill and destroy my heart is on God’s short leash and has already been defeated. I know that any negative thing in this world comes from that spirit of darkness and like God calling earth I simply name the thing and I, yes, I have been given all authority in Jesus Christ to trample it out.
I am my God’s brightest city on a hill in the middle of the blackest night because His light shines in me and His presence obliterates all darkness.

My God is within me and I cannot fail and I have the Spirit of truth and the mind of Christ Himself.

I bear witness to my God and I will not forget that my God, yes, my God is my refuge and strength, my fortress, the king of all the earth who delivers me from my fears, hears me when I call and saves me from my troubles. He is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. He knows the way of the righteous and is a shield about me. He strikes my enemies on the cheek, breaks the teeth of the wicked, never delights in wickedness and destroys those who speak lies. He is gracious and sets apart the godly for His very own Self and blesses the righteous. He puts joy in my heart, makes me dwell in safety and covers His people with favor like a shield. He tests my mind and heart. He establishes His strength, sets His glory above the heavens and His name is majestic in all the earth. He establishes His throne for justice, is a stronghold for the oppressed and does not forget the cry of the afflicted. He is in His holy temple and He is righteous.
He makes Himself known.
Yes He does.
He is a helper for the fatherless and opposed and gives them justice. He strengthens my heart and deals bountifully with me. He restores the fortunes of His people. He is my chosen portion and my cup and He even counsels me in the middle of the night. He keeps me as the apple of His eye and He hides me in the shadow of His wings.
He is at my right hand and I will not be shaken.
My God is King, forever and ever.


But you, beloved, building yourselves up in your most holy faith and and praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ that leads to eternal life. ~ our Brother Jude (verse 20)
