    My child, do not fear being overcome by sin, nor be concerned about what the future holds. I have given you My Holy Spirit and anointed you with the strength to stand; I have equipped you to resist the enemy in every battle that is mounted against you today.
    Simply seek Me early, My sleepy one, for I am waiting for you in our secret place. I have strength with confidence to give you through My Spirit, and truth with authority from My Word.
    Be certain, My cautious one, that sin shall not have dominion over you, for though you are attacked, and though it wounds the flesh, it shall never be sovereign over you, for only I, your Creator, your Redeemer, your Savior, have earned that right. I am the One Who has vanquished all other names and authorities who would seek to own and devour you.
    Take courage, My love, and resist without yielding, stand without submitting, to the temptations and corruptions that assail you. Be strengthened with My assurance that evil shall never hold sway over you again because of the victory given you by the Father through My work of obedience.
    Through the blood of My sacrifice on the cross, I bought salvation, kinship, and kingdom inheritance for you.
