A Soldier's Creed
"Where does my help come from my help comes from the LORD the Creator of Heaven and Earth"
Amid the noise of the world around me I seclude myself in solitude only to hear HIS voice.
It is as though I woke up a year ago and took my first real breath of air, yet born again but in the midst of a battle between man and sin.
A constant struggle within, for my soul is beginning to grow and become the individual in the body of Christ that I was created to be.
Though I walk in flesh yet I am not bound
by it ...
All around us we see disharmony and broken vows but what I have within me never forsakes me nor leaves me.
For greater is HE that is within me than he that is in this world. Yes I am heaven bound,
Armoured with the shield of Faith, the breastplate of righteousness, shodding my feet with the gospel, girding myself with the truth, and my head covered with the helmet of salvation I stand firm with the sword of the living word for I am a soldier in a war .. not of flesh but of principalities things that are not seen with the human eye but with the discernment of the heart.
Much can be said but the one thing that must be said is before JESUS called me out of my tomb I was dead in my sins bound for a place not meant for man ..
You see I serve a leader who willingly laid down HIS life for mine not only that but I serve a leader who has the power to raise up from the dead and conquer death and in HIM I am made more than a conqueror.
As a soldier of Christ I dont go about seeking whom to destroy but instead as JESUS showed us how, I seek to whom I can help whom I can pray for and love by laying aside myself to achieve the higher purposes of the kingdom of GOD.
I am not perfect but I am not fallen nor will the LORD leave HIS work unfinished for HE is the ALPHA AND OMEGA to all things and I am a work in progress.
Though this battle may be long and hard yet it is worth it for in my heart the goal that I desire the most is to please the One who adopted me when I was nothing more than an orphan to this world.
I am not ashamed nor intimidated nor do I have to excuse myself
Instead I humbly seek HIS will and do the work that is set out before me whether it is to tend to a sick friend or listen to a broken heart
This isn't about me but about JESUS who was, who is, and who will always be the Lord of lords and King of kings no man can ever affect or destroy HIS glory and nothing can separate HIM from his own..
For in HIM all things are possible and with HIM we can do all things.
And I do not have to fret or fear for victory has already been won and it was done so by HIS blood.
This is my life, my hope, my desire, my creed
For I am a soldier of Christ and in HIM is my identity.
