Over the Walls

In Psalm 18, David praises God for saving him 
from the hand of all his enemies.
He reached down from on high and took hold of me; 
He drew me out of deep waters. 
He rescued me from my powerful enemies, 
who were too strong for me.

There are days where you are so aware 
of the enemy's plan for your life.
The battle is over incarnation.
Whose life will we manifest on this earth?
This season is a powerful reminder 
that Christ came to incarnate His life on earth.
The enemy speaks his native tongue of lies
to convince us that his life is our only choice.
He places a semblance of truth inside a mega lie
and all we hear is the small part that could be true.

The moment we entertain his suggestion, 
darkness begins to creep in.
But thoughts of fear, doubt, or hopelessness
are vehicles of incarnation for our enemy.
Although yesterday seemed like deep waters to me, 
God reached down and took hold of me.
He told me that I had to come up, 
to sit where He was seated.
To see things from His perspective.
Up is better.

The walls of dark thoughts we face every day 
are meant to be scaled.
Whatever is true, and honorable, and right, 
and pure, and lovely, and admirable. 
Think about those things...
Lord, I want to be true to Your life 
and be one who chooses to incarnate the life of light.
Thank You for reaching down and taking a hold of me.
With You I can attack a barrier, 
and with my God I can leap over a wall.
You are so faithful to me.
