Your neck is like the tower of David, built for an armory, on which hang a thousand bucklers, all shields of mighty men (Song of Solomon 4:4).
Great is His power toward us! In the power of His resurrection life, I am changed. This Mighty One proclaims the beauty of my neck, which speaks of my will. He alone has strengthened my will, to be ever turned towards to Him. He has strengthened me in steadfast, voluntary love. Freely I choose righteousness.
Deep within I have resolved to obey my Jesus. This resolution has built a storehouse within me that contains mighty offensive weapons against Satan’s kingdom. As I freely give of my love to Him, going with Him wherever He chooses to go, abundant protection is mine. Resolute, strong, and protected, I am becoming a skilled warrior in the Kingdom.
His love for me fashions a fortress of safety within my heart. His truth penetrates my fears and I am free to choose Him completely. The wonders of His love! As King, He proclaimed that He will have His way. The power of His proclamation is now see.
My King, You willed to bring forth the beauty of Your creation within me. From the beginning planting of the seed to the budding of flowers, You persevered with love. Love now receives its reward—joyful obedience to You. Your longing to abide with me has captured my heart. Jesus, don’t stop with my heart, but capture all of me.
