Yahweh Will Fight For You


"Yahweh will fight for you, and you shall be still.” 
~Exodus 14:14

My Lord, My Shield

Thank You, Lord,
That You're my King,
My Shield and Victory;
You will fight on my behalf 
And You'll deliver me
From every evil foe,
From every evil scheme;
And You will keep me in Your heart
For all eternity.
© S.D. Harden 

Thank You, Heavenly Father, Lord Jesus, Holy Spirit, that Thy word promises that You will fight for us against every evil scheme of the enemy to do us harm or to hinder us from doing Thy will or fulfilling our divine purpose. We need only to be quiet and trust in You to defeat our enemies as we wait in faith in the shadow of Thy holy wings, resting in Thy love. We love You, Lord. In Jesus' name, Amen.

Gifts To God

We are Gifts To God 

"Moreover, because of what Christ has done, 
we have become gifts to God that He delights in, 
for as part of God’s sovereign plan we were chosen from the beginning 
to be His, and all things happen just as He decided long ago."
Ephesians 1:11 (TLB)

Thank You, Lord (A Prayer Poem)

Thank You, Lord, for loving me;
To You I am Your gift;
A treasure You delight in,
Redeemed from guilt and sin;
Bought with the precious blood
Of Christ, Your only Son,
You clothe me with His righteousness,
And wrap me in His Love.

Christ Is Praying For Us

"Christ Prays For Us" © Suzanne Davis Harden All Rights Reserved.

"Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us." ~Romans 8:34 (NKJV)

Christ Is Praying For Us

The Bible assures us that even if no one else is praying for us on our journey, we must never feel all alone or abandoned. For there is One who is always praying for us, night and day. He knows our every need and His prayers are always answered. He will never give up on us. 

No one else may know my name, but Jesus Christ, our Heavenly High Priest, knows me. He loves each of us so much, that He has engraved a picture of us on the Palm of His hand. (Isaiah 49:16) He cannot, nor will He ever forget about us.
We may imagine that He has forgotten us sometimes but God's word assures us that the One who is praying for us night and day is always thinking about us. "I am poor and weak, yet the Lord is thinking about me right now!" ~(Psalm 40:17 ERV)

 The Psalmist wrote, "How precious it is, Lord, to realize that You are thinking about me constantly! I can’t even count how many times a day Your thoughts turn toward me. And when I waken in the morning, You are still thinking of me!" (Psalm 139:17-18 TLB)
The One who is praying for each of us day and night is constantly thinking about us, praying for all of our needs. He is at the right hand of His Heavenly Father, the Bible says, pleading for us.
(Romans 8:34). And nothing will ever be able to separate us from His immeasurable love toward us.

 "And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord."~ (Romans 8:38-39 NLT)

Heavenly Father, thank You that You sent Your only Son to die for our sins to redeem us for Yourself and that He now stands beside You in the Eternal Day pleading on our behalf. Thank You that You are for us and that Thy word says if You are for us, that NOTHING can be against us. Thank You that You cannot and will not ever fail or forsake us and that we are always in Your thoughts. Your love for us is measureless. Help us to remember and consider these things in our challenging times. Help us to remember that Thy Son is ALWAYS praying for us according to Thy will for us. We love You, Lord. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Letters From God

Has God given you a dream? Maybe it's an idea that seems too impossible to ever come true. Don't throw it away! Have faith in the dreams that God sows inside your heart. Here are some scriptures to encourage you to keep believing and working toward making those dreams God gives you come true. God Bless you. I am praying for you.

The Lord will fulfill His purpose for me. Lord, Your love is eternal…"~(Psalm 138:8 NLT)

"God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished
on the day when Christ Jesus returns." ~Philippians 1:6 (Philippians 1:6 NLT)

“This is the word of The Lord…‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord Almighty.” ~ (Zechariah 4:6 NIV)

"Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin…" ~(Zechariah 4:10 NLT)

"Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think."~(Ephesians 3:20 NLT)

Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible.” ~(Matthew 19:26 NLT)

"For nothing is impossible with God.” ~(Luke 1:37 NLT)

"God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us. Glory to God…” ~Ephesians 3:20 (The Message Bible)


Heavenly Father, may You bless each person reading these words. May they not give up on the dreams You have created them to fulfill. Thank You, Lord. I love You. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Lord, Help Me Be Like That Tree

Deuteronomy 31:8 (NLT)
Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord will personally go ahead of you. 
He will be with you; he will neither fail you nor abandon you.” 

Lord, Help Me To Be That Tree  (© S.D. Harden)

Lord, help me be the flexible tree~ 

That bends its boughs in adversity,

Through winds of trial and suffering,

That hides itself away in Thee

And trusts when assailed by enemies; 

Whose limbs bow humbly in chastening, 

Who will not break but find the Stream 

Of God to drink, it's roots will cling,

It's roots dig deep into that Stream... 

It's leaves are ever full and green,

It bears its fruit to Christ it's King...

In every season it will sing...

Oh Lord, help me to be that tree.

Oh Lord, help me to be that tree~

That tree that bows and bends to Thee; 

For the tree that bows and bends the knee 

Will bear the fruit that honors Thee,

That lasts throughout Eternity...

Oh Lord, help me to be that tree. 

Heavenly Father, may we ever cling to Your promises in Your word that You are always with us in every season of our lives. No matter what challenge we may ever face on our path, You will be right there to see us through as we put our faith, hope, and trust in You. Thank You, Lord. In Jesus' name, amen.
