Give Me This Mountain

Give me this mountain, Lord. I am ready to take it.

I am not too young, too old, too feminine, too sensitive, too anything. I am exactly as I need to be to be used by you. I am, in this moment, on this day, ready to be sent into battle.

A war is at hand, you need fighters. You need people like me, exactly as I am, to send to the front lines.

I do not fear the enemy. I am not afraid of his tricks, his attacks, his lies, his screech. For inside of me is a roar that will shake the earth and cause the enemies to scatter. The devil has attacked me, has attacked your people, for too long, he knows not what he has done.

By attacking me, he has forced me to become stronger, braver, bolder, tougher, wiser, fiercer. He knows not that by coming after me he has strengthened me, molded me into a warrior that he will now fear.

He tried to take me out, but instead he has sent me in, into the middle of the war. I now search for him, awaiting the time when I can rise up and show him who he has made me into.

I am a warrior, a fighter, an overcomer. I am bold, brave and fearless. I am all that my God has called me to be and am, day by day, becoming all He has destined me to become.

The enemy does not realize that by attacking me he has made me strong.

He does not realize that by coming after my health, mind, finances, career, family, future he has forced me to be relentless in my pursuit of the Lord.

He does not realize that by telling me I am hopeless he made me listen to the words spoken by my Father with unblocked ears, words saying I am never without hope.

He does not realize that by saying my health will fail he has caused me to search the scriptures until I found the promises spoken long ago that assured me long and healthy life.

He does not realize that by yelling at me that I will amount to nothing he has forced me into my Father’s arms, and in those arms I learned that I will amount to everything promised me in the scriptures.

No, he does not realize what he has done, yet. There will come a day when the enemy sees the mistake he made by coming after me. I will rejoice in that day as I watch him fall.

So, put me in, Lord, give me this mountain, I long to take it. I desire to see the enemy crash as I stand at the top proclaiming who truly reigns, who the Lord of this world has always been and who my Father is.

Devil, there will come a day when you realize what you have done by attacking me. You have created a soldier on accident, and this soldier is coming for you.

And now, here I am this day, EIGHTY-FIVE years oldAs yet I am as strong this day as on the day that Moses sent me; just as my strength was then, so now is my strength for war, both for going out and for coming in. Now therefore, give me this mountain.” -Joshua 14:10-12 (NKJV)
