What are you wearing? Are you battle ready? For you are in a spiritual battle, and you must be clothed with power on high in order to destroy the works of the kingdom of darkness. Are you willing to yield to Me completely? Will you allow Me to possess you and have My way? For I long to have yielded vessels like My Son; He only did what He saw Me doing. Do you trust Me? Can I wear you like a glove?
For when you allow Me to take over, I will make you a battle axe to push back darkness. Do not bow to the fear of man, but only reverence Me as Lord in your heart. For you were bought with the precious Blood of My Son. You were born to be an overcomer. You were born to rule and reign with Christ in heavenly places. You were born to manifest My Kingdom to this world.
Therefore, empty yourself of everything of the self-life and allow Me to possess you and clothe you with power from on high. Then, together we will destroy the works of the enemy, and display My mighty power for all the world to see My greatness and My majesty.

6 Who creates the mountains by His strength,
Being clothed with power,
7 Who stills the roaring of the seas,

8 So they who dwell at the ends of the earth stand in awe of Your signs [the evidence of Your presence].
You make the dawn and the sunset shout for joy.
