I Shall Arise

“Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the Lord shall be a light unto me.” -Micah 7:8

When I fall, I will rise, over, and over, and over again. For, there will be times when I fall, when I feel weak and unable. There will be days when the sun rises and I may be unsure if I can do the same. There will be situations that weigh upon me, that push me down and make me doubt. There will be, for there always has been: but, when I fall, I will always rise.

No situation can defeat me, for I am not alone, not ever and not even once. No enemy can take me out, for I am not fighting this war by myself. I have something, Someone, on my side that no enemy can defeat, no lie can diminish, and no darkness can overcome.

What is in me is much greater than what is around me.

Though the battle rages to my right and to my left, and though the weight of the war weighs heavily upon me, I shall arise.

Though the darkness creeps in around me and blots out the sun above me, I shall arise.

Though the enemy whispers in my ear, tells me lie after lie, I shall arise.

Though the world and all its difficulties press in upon me, I shall arise.

I shall arise because I am greater than this, greater than the attacks, the adversaries, the lies, the darkness, the pressing in of the enemy. I am greater than the difficulties that surround me, for I was born for such a times as this.

God formed me in my mother’s womb and knew me long before the forming. He knew me long before He called me forth, before the world ever knew my name. The Lord knew me and knew what I would be faced with, so He prepared a way before I ever walked the path.

He placed in me the ability to overcome any obstacle, for He knew every obstacle before they ever came forth.

He gave me sight to see in the darkness, ears to hear in the silence and a mind to perceive in the midst of chaos. The Lord knew what I would face before I was facing it, therefore He made a way before I even knew where I was going.

I shall arise, and I shall walk out, for my God made a way out before the enemy ever made a way in.

“Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee.” – Jeremiah 1:5
