I am my Father’s daughter. I am fully equipped and well-trained. I know how to wield my double-edged sword. I speak and do as my Father does. The Lion of Judah goes before me and prepares my path. He is my protector and instructor and is always with me.

But I declare that My grace is sufficient for you, and My strength is made perfect in your weakness! Continue reading “Fresh Focus”
