Invoke the Mighty Warrior!

“ But the Lord is with me like a mighty warrior; so my persecutors will stumble and not prevail. They will fail and be thoroughly disgraced; their dishonor will never be forgotten.” Jeremiah 20:11

I’m a victor, not a victim! The name Malan means “ Little warrior,” and it came to me when I was branding my R&B sound. Malan comes from the initial of my first name Michael , and middle name Alan . I then wondered what does the name Malan mean , and came across and article explains it to mean “ Little Warrior ”. I didn’t like the word “ Little ” cause I like to consider myself as a big man, ha-ha! But I’m often reminded in the bible how God uses small things to shame Goliath. He used Gideon’s 3000 to defeat a vast army. He used David to defeat Goliath, he used a cross and some nails to captivate our hearts. He often used weakness to show off his strength. So in the eyes of God, a small thing can be powerful. A seed can turn into a big tree. A little rudder can steer a huge ship, and a little faith in God can go a long way.

So I came up with the motto “ Awaken your little warrior”, but it didn’t inspire me, it didn’t move me…something was missing!

While reading Jeremiah 20:11 on the bibleinoneyear.org I saw how people plotted against Jeremiah to take his life, but he was confident because God was with him. He said….

“ But the Lord is with me like a mighty warrior; so my persecutors will stumble and not prevail. They will fail and be thoroughly disgraced; their dishonor will never be forgotten.” Jeremiah 20:11

There is no need to be afraid of what people or spirits may do against you…it won’t work, as the prophet Isaiah said “ No weapon formed against you shall prosper, And every tongue which rises against you in judgment, You shall condemn “ ( Isaiah 54: 17).

So based on these words the motto for Malan Jones changed from “ Awaken the little Warrior” to… “Awaken the Mighty Warrior “ But then I thought , God doesn’t sleep nor slumber ( Psalms 121:4). So he can’t be awakened, but he can be called upon. He can be invoked. So the motto changed to Invoke the mighty warrior!

To invoke means to call for support. God is my mighty warrior who saves! Through all my persecutions, and trials I’m not afraid because God is my mighty warrior whom I walk with, and am protected. Because of Jesus Christ, Emmanuel, God with us I will prosper.

So I will call upon the Lord for my strength , I will prosper because God is my support through all my persecutions and trials. And you can make it through all your trials and tribulations because “ Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved!” ( Romans 10:13)

Call upon God for victory, call on Jesus for your salvation. Invoke the Mighty Warrior!
