Soldier in the Army of 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 called to this army, and I am enlisted for eternity! I will not get out, sell out, be talked out or pushed out. I am faithful, reliable, capable and dependable. If my God needs me, I am there. If He needs me to teach children, work with youth, help adults or just sit and learn, He can use me because I am there. I am a soldier! I am not a baby! I do not need to be pampered, petted, primed up, pumped up, picked up or prepped up. I am a soldier!
No one has to call me, write me, remind me, visit me, entice me or lure me. I am a soldier! I am not a wimp! I am in place saluting my King, obeying His orders, praising His name and building His Kingdom. No one has to send me flowers, gifts, food, cards, candy or give me handouts. I do not need to be cuddled, cradled, cared for or catered to. I am committed!
I cannot have my feelings hurt enough to turn me around! I cannot be discouraged enough to turn me aside. I cannot lose enough to cause me to quit. My God will supply all my needs. I am a conqueror! I will always triumph … I can do all things through Christ! Devils cannot defeat me, people cannot disillusion me, worry 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 of God, I serve my King and nothing will stop me! I live for King and Country!
