The Battle is the Lord’s

Proverbs 20
27 The spirit of man is the candle of the Lord, searching all the inward parts of the belly. 28 Mercy and truth preserve the king: and his throne is upholden by mercy. 29 The glory of young men is their strength: and the beauty of old men is the grey head. 30 The blueness of a wound cleanseth away evil: so do stripes the inward parts of the belly.

Search me and know me Lord.
Let my many days be filled with your wisdom. Cleanse me and renew me.
Let experience be coupled with understanding, that I may be a porter of your mercy daily.
Guard my heart from weariness and restore strength to my bones. I will live in truth as you enable the wounds to heal and the wisdom to be manifested.
For a moment I was grieved for my eyes had lost sight of the promise.
Yet the memory of your faithfulness drew me back to the well of peace.
The water quenched my longing heart and I discovered again that it is in your presence that I find my rest
It is in your counsel that I find understanding. It is in the trial and in the battle that I must stand clothed in your armour. I will never be ready lest I dress in your salvation and cover my heart with righteousness. And walk with my feet covered in your peace. I cannot attain victory lest I hold in hand the shield of faith which enables me to believe that the battle is the Lord’s.
For your word says, No weapon formed against me will prosper. Your word says that my mind will be in perfect peace when it is stayed on you.
Your word says that you are faithful and true.
That all my days are written in your book. That you know my rising and my going to sleep. You know my goings and my comings. You have all things in your control. It is then my duty to walk then, in the works that you have beforehand prepared for me to walk in.
Guard my lips and my heart. Keep my eyes fixed on your promises. For great is the reward of them that seek you. Of those that follow and finish the course.
