The king and his men marched to Jerusalem to
attack the Jebusites, who lived there. The Jebusites said to David, “You will
not get in here; even the blind and the lame can ward you off.” They thought,
“David cannot get in here.” Nevertheless, David captured the fortress of Zion—which is
the City of David. 2 Samuel 5:6&7 (NIV)

defining or ending a relationship, tackling a weight issue or simply decluttering
Be bold; remember God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of
love and of a sound mind. If you can identify it, you can defeat it, if
you can march on it, you can conquer it. Regardless of race, culture or gender,
you have been empowered.
