Have I not said that those who wait on Me will renew their strength? You will mount up with wings like that of eagles, high above your circumstances. You will gain perspective from My vantage point. You will understand the strategies of the enemy and learn to war with authority.
For you are a battle-ax created to destroy the works of the enemy. He is no match for My Spirit-filled children; those walking in the light. For My light dispels the darkness all around, so that others can see the way to the Father. He is light and in Him there is no darkness at all.
Come and spend time in My presence, and all of the battles that you are facing in the natural will pale in comparison to My glory. I will bathe you in My presence until all that you see is Me. I will lift your burdens as you lay them down one by one. Come and rest in Me, all you who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you that sweet rest that you long for. For I love you with an everlasting love, and I will carry you close to My heart.
Isaiah 63:7-9 New International Version (NIV)
7 I will tell of the kindnesses of the Lord, the deeds for which he is to be praised, according to all the Lord has done for us—yes, the many good things he has done for Israel, according to his compassion and many kindnesses.
8 He said, “Surely they are my people, children who will be true to me”; and so he became their Savior.
9 In all their distress he too was distressed, and the angel of his presence saved them. In his love and mercy he redeemed them; he lifted them up and carried them all the days of old.
Jeremiah 51:19-21 New Living Translation (NLT)
19 But the God of Israel is no idol! He is the Creator of everything that exists, including his people, his own special possession. The Lord of Heaven’s Armies is his name!
20 “You are my battle-ax and sword,” says the Lord. “With you I will shatter nations and destroy many kingdoms.
21 With you I will shatter armies—destroying the horse and rider, the chariot and charioteer.
