The battle rages

I sent an email out to friends yesterday, asking for prayer support to withstand the harshness of the spiritual environment we find ourselves in.  I am overwhelmed by the richness of their responses:
I'll be interceding (more like doing battle) on your behalf. Remember: you are richly blessed and highly favored; He will never leave or forsake you. Keep crying out to Him to do the battle on your behalf. Even though it feels like nothing is happening, there's major fighting taking place for territory. Do not forget to put on your armor several times during the day. Remain protected ... remain offensive!
Praying for you, sweet friend. Knowing that He is holding you when you are numb to it.
The Lord is looking after you both, he knows the struggles that you are going thru and he is right there, that's why we are praying for you. 
This morning, I crawled out of bed early to have a few minutes with my Lord Who had words to share:

I know.  I know.

I Am well aware of the wall before you, but rest in the truth of the wall around you.

When you sent out your call for help - it was indeed a battle cry, rousing others to stand strong in your weakness. 

This allowed you to see again.

Trust that even as you fall, you move the unmoveable, bit by bit.

There is a war that is more real than what flesh can experience - and you, little one, stand as My warrior.

What is depleted in battle will be restored in My arms.

Isn't it wonderful when friends respond to our 911 calls? So thankful yours did, and it inspires me to do the same when my friends ask. And to ask more myself!

Whatever you're going through I pray it grows you instead of depletes you.

In our emptying...He fills complete. Praying that He fills every place that's been emptied and satifies your soul with His goodness...
