I Am a Soldier

I am a soldier in the Army of God!

The Lord Jesus Christ is my Commanding Officer.  (Matthew 28:18)
The Holy Bible is my code of conduct.  (Romans 1:2, 2 Timothy 3:15)
Faith, Prayer, and the Word are my weapons of Warfare.  (Ephesians 6:10-18)
I have been taught by the Holy Spirit, trained by experience, tried by adversity, and tested by fire.     (1 Peter 1:6-8)

I am a volunteer in this army, and I am enlisted for eternity.  (John 3:35-36, John 5:24-25)

I will either retire in this Army or die in this Army;  (1 Thessalonians 4:15-17)
but, I will not get out, sell out, be talked out, or pushed out.  (1 Peter 5:10)
I am faithful, reliable, capable, and dependable.  (Psalm 37:24, 28)
If my God needs me, I am there.  (2 Corinthians 6:3-10, 1 Corinthians 12-27-29)

I am a soldier. I am not a baby.
I do not need to be pampered, petted, primed up,
pumped up, picked up, or pepped up.   (Luke 12:22-31)

I am a soldier. No one has to call me, remind me, write me, visit me, entice me, or lure me.  (Deuteronomy 6:4-9))

I am a soldier. I am not a wimp.
I am in place, praising my God, obeying His orders, and building His kingdom!  (Deuteronomy 31:6, Psalm 25:1-5, Matthew 28:19)

No one has to send me flowers, gifts, food, cards, candy, or give me handouts.
I do not need to be cuddled, cradled, cared for, or catered to.

I am committed.

 I cannot have my feelings hurt bad enough to turn me around. 

I cannot be discouraged enough to turn me aside.

I cannot lose enough to cause me to quit.
When Jesus called me into this Army, I had nothing.
If I end up with nothing, I will still come out even. I will win.
My God will supply all my needs. I am more than a conqueror.
I will always triumph. I can do all things through Christ.
Devils cannot defeat me. People cannot disillusion me.
Weather cannot weary me. Sickness cannot stop me.
Battles cannot beat me. Money cannot buy me.
Governments cannot silence me, and hell cannot handle me!

I am a soldier.
Even death cannot destroy me.
For when my Commander calls me from this battlefield,
He will promote me to a captain.
I am a soldier, in the Army, I’m marching, claiming victory.
I will not give up. I will not turn around. I am a soldier, marching Heaven bound.

The Army of One is fine, but the Army of The One is better!
