Like Father Like Daughter

“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written: “For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered. No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us,” Romans 8:35-37

“I write to you, young men, because you are strong, and the Word of God lives in you, and you have overcome the evil one,”1 John 2:14

You are my daughter.

And just as a daughter inherits traits from her earthly father, so you inherit My traits.

But, the traits you get from me aren’t limited.

They don’t carry any trace of imperfection or short coming or weakness.

But of all my traits, there is one I never want you to forget, for if you do, you will fall victim to the schemes of this world.

I, my daughter, AM a conqueror.

So, you too are a conqueror.

You have inherited my Strength, my Spirit.

I AM living inside of you, walking with you, shielding you, strengthening you, conditioning you.

YOU ARE what I AM.

YOU ARE A CONQUEROR.

Not lust, nor fear, nor self-doubt, nor screwed up plans or unforeseen troubles, NOTHING can bind you. No scheme can overpower you, not a single arrow the Enemy throws at you will be able to penetrate my shield that you carry.

This world is a battlefield.

Every day the enemy advances, but with each battle you fight, whether it ends in victory or defeat, you are victorious.

Every battle builds up strength and wisdom and understanding in your Spirit, and while the Enemy believes each battle weakens you, in reality, know that I allow each battle to take place because I know the purpose it serves in advancing my kingdom.

One day, you will meet someone who is going through a similar battle you once went through, and that’s when you will see my purpose in letting you go through what once seemed like an impossible fight.

That’s when you will catch a glimpse of what my kingdom looks like, of the unity that exists among my people in my name.

It’s only because of the knowledge you gain in the struggles that you will be able to help your brother or sister in his time of need, and likewise receive help in your time of need.

Now daughter, at times, there will be no other warriors by your side.

At times, it will just be the Enemy and his legion and you.

But Remember,

YOU are a CONQUEROR. YOU are my daughter, and I AM with you always.

I see what Satan is planning; nothing he does or will do takes me by surprise.

I have the strategies for winning this battle because I know the Enemy’s every move, not just for today, but for tomorrow and always. NOTHING happens without my consent.

So take comfort in knowing that my love for you never ends, never lessens, never increases. I love you the same yesterday, today and forever. I have plans for you to have life and have it abundantly. I have plans for you to have peace of mind, to have knowledge and understanding. I will love you radically, purely, fully and perfectly, faithfully all the days of your life.

So when it seems like the battle is almost lost and your’e ready to raise your white flag in defeat, remember my love. Remember that I wouldn’t allow you to go through this if I didn’t have something beautiful in store, if I didn’t have something planned to show you how much I love you, to show you that I was with you all along.

And as the time approaches for each fight, I will reveal to you my plans.

I WILL show you The Way if you call on me.

Never forget I have already CONQUERED this world, and since you are my daughter, it’s only natural that you will take after your Father.
