A Soldier, I AM.

by Vashte on March 17, 2012

I am a soldier in the army of my God. The Lord Jesus Christ 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 experience, TRIED BY ADVERSITY, and tested by fire. I am a volunteer in this army and I’m 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’m faithful, reliable, capable and dependable. If my God needs me, I’m there. If He needs me in Sunday School to teach children, work with the youth, help adults or just sit and learn, He can use me because I’m there. I am a soldier, I am not a baby. I do not need to be pampered, petted, primed up, pumped up, picked OR pepped up….

I AM A SOLDIER.

 

Noone has to call me, remind me, write me, visit me, entice me or lure me. I AM A SOLDIER, NOT a wimp. I am in place saluting my King, obeying His orders, praising His Name, and building His Kingdom. Noone has to send me flowers, gifts, food, cards, candy or handouts. I do not need to be cuddled, cradled, cared for or catered to. I AM committed. I CANNOT have my feelings hurt BAD 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. If I end up with nothing, I’ll still come out even – I WILL WIN. My God will supply all 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 battle field, He will promote me to a captain and then bring me back to rule this world WITH HIM. (yeah baby xx) 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, here I stand. Will YOU stand with me? Guess what! If you have accepted Christ as your Lord and Saviour, you are ALREADY enlisted! The question is; are you on active duty serving the Lord faithfully, daily and on duty 24/7? Or are you on reserved status serving only when called upon twice a year; Christmas and Easter. OR guard status, backing up the active duty… OR   A.W.O.L – Absent Without The Lord?…..

I do not know the author of that, but was given it in Bible College last year. I think it is great, and something I am working on personally.

 Talk to Him- He is listening and always waiting. Always welcoming you.

ALWAYS. xx
