I'm a Soldier in the Army of God

I'm a soldier in the army of God !

The Lord Jesus is my commanding officer !
The Holy Bible is my code of conduct !
Faith, Prayer, and the Word are my weapons of warfare !
I have been taught by the Holy Spirit, trained by Adversity, and tested by fire !
I am a volunteer in this army and I am enlisted for eternity !
I will either retire in this army at the rapture or die in this army;
But I will not Get out, Sell out, be Talked out, or Pushed out !
I am Faithful, Reliable, Capable, and Dependable !
If my God needs me I am there !

If he needs me in Sunday school to teach children, work with youth, help adults, or just sit and learn; he can use me because I am there.
I do not need to be Pampered, Petted, Primed up, Pumped up, Picked up, or Pepped up !
I am a soldier !
No one has to call me, remind me, write me, visit me, entice me, or lure me !
I am a soldier !
I am not a wimp !
I am in place saluting my King, obeying His orders, praising His name, and building His kingdom !
No one has to send me flowers, gifts, food, cards, candy, or give me handouts !

I do not need to be cuddled, cradled, cared for, or catered to !
I am committed !
I cannot have my feelings hurt enough to turn me around !
I cannot be discouraged enough to turn me aside !
I cannot lose enough to cause me to quit !
When Jesus called me into this army, I had nothing and if I end up with nothing, I will break even!  I will win !
My God will supply all of my needs !
I am more than a conqueror !
I will always triumph !
I can do all things through Christ !

Devils cannot defeat me !
People cannot disillusion me !
Weather cannot weary me !
Sickness cannot stop me !
Battles cannot beat me !
Money cannot buy me !
Governments cannot silence me !
And hell cannot handle me !

I am a soldier !
Even death cannot destroy me !
For when my commander calls me from this battlefield, He will promote me to a captain and bring me back to rule this world with Him.

I am a soldier in the army and I'm marching, claiming victory !
I will not give up !
I will not turn around !
I am a soldier marching Heaven Bound !
I am Committed!                              (Rev. S.M. Lockridge, San Diego CA)

I am Committed!

I'm part of the fellowship of the unashamed. I have Holy Spirit power.
The die has been cast. I have stepped over the line.
The decision has been made. I'm a disciple of His.
I won't look back, let up, slow down, back away, or be still.

My past is redeemed, my present makes sense, my future is secure. I'm
finished and done with low living, sight walking, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tamed visions, mundane talk, cheap living, and dwarfed goals.

I no longer need pre-eminence, prosperity, position, promotions, plaudits, or  popularity. I don't have to be right, first, tops, recognized, praised, regarded, or rewarded. I now live by faith, lean on His presence, walk by patience, lift by prayer, and labor by power.

My face is set, my gait is fast, my goal is heaven, my road is narrow, my way is rough, my companions few, my guide reliable, my mission clear. I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of the adversary, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity.

I won't give up, shut up, let up, until I have stayed up, prayed up, paid up, preached up, for the cause of Christ. I am a disciple of Jesus. I must go till He comes, give till I drop, preach till all know, and work till He stops me. And when He comes for His own, He will have no problems recognizing me - my banner will be clear!
He is the First and Last

He is the First and Last, the Beginning and the End!

He is the keeper of Creation and the Creator of all!

He keeps the Architect of the universe and the Manager of all times.

He always was, He always is, and He always will be...  Unmoved, Unchanged,
Undefeated, and never Undone!

He was bruised and brought healing!
He was pierced and eased pain!

He was persecuted and brought freedom!
He was dead and brought life!

He is risen and brings power!
He reigns and brings Peace!

The world can't understand him,
The armies can't defeat Him,

The schools can't explain Him, and
The leaders can't ignore Him.

Herod couldn't kill Him,
The Pharisees couldn't confuse Him,
and The people couldn't hold Him!

Nero couldn't crush Him,
Hitler couldn't silence Him,
The New Age can't replace Him, and
Donahue can't explain Him away!

He is light, love, longevity, and Lord.
He is goodness, Kindness, Gentleness, and God.
He is Holy, Righteous, mighty, powerful, and pure.

His ways are right,
His word is eternal,
His will is unchanging, and
His mind is on me!

He is my redeemer,
He is my Savior,
He is my guide, and
He is my peace!

He is my Joy,
He is my comfort,
He is my Lord, and
He rules my life!

I serve Him because His bond is love,
His burden is light, and
His goal for me is abundant life.

I follow Him because He is the wisdom of the wise, the power of the powerful,
the ancient of days, the ruler of rulers, the leader of leaders,
the overseer of the overcomers, and the sovereign Lord of all that was
and is and is to come.

And if that seems impressive to you, try this for size.

His goal is a relationship with ME!

He will never leave me, never forsake me,
never mislead me, never forget me, never overlook me,
and never cancel my appointment in His appointment book!

When I fall, He lifts me up!
When I fail, He forgives!

When I am weak, He is strong!
When I am lost, He is the way!

When I am afraid, He is my courage!
When I stumble, He steadies me!

When I am hurt, He heals me!
When I am broken, He mends me!

When I am blind, He leads me!
When I am hungry, He feeds me!

When I face trials, He is with me!
When I face persecution, He shields me!

When I face problems, He comforts me!
When I face loss, He provides for me!

When I face Death, He carries me Home!

He is everything for everybody, everywhere, every time, and every way.

He is God,
He is faithful.
I am His, and He is mine!

My Father in heaven can whip the father of this world.

So, if you're wondering why I feel so secure, understand this...

He said it and that settles it. God is in control,
I am on His side, and that means all is well with my soul.

Everyday is a blessing for GOD Is!

I love the Lord and thank Him for all that he does in my life, therefore,
I'm passing this on. Yes I do love Jesus. 

He is my source of existence and Savior.

He keeps me functioning each and everyday. 

Without Him, I will be nothing.
Without Him, I am nothing but with Him I can do all things.
Phil 4:13
The Warriorís Prayer

Heavenly Father,
Your warrior prepares for battle.
Today I claim victory over Satan by putting on
The whole armor of God!

I put on the Girdle of Truth!
May I stand firm in the truth of Your Word
so I will not be a victim of Satanís lies.

I put on the Breastplate of Righteousness!
May it guard my heart from evil
So I will remain pure and holy,
Protected under the blood of Jesus Christ.

I put on the shoes of Peace!
May I stand firm in the Good News of the Gospel
So Your peace will shine through me
And be a light to all I encounter.

I take the Shield of Faith!
May I be ready for Satanís fiery darts of
Doubt, denial, and deceit
So I will not be vulnerable to spiritual defeat.

I put on the Helmet of Salvation!
May I keep my mind focused on You
So Satan will not have a stronghold on my
Thoughts.

I take the Sword of the Spirit!
May the two-edged sword of Your Word
Be ready in my hands
So I can expose the tempting words of Satan.

By Faith Your warrior has put on
The whole Armor of God!

I am prepared to live this day in spiritual victory!

Amen.
