The incredible truth of declaring “it is well with my soul”, is the fact that in any given moment, it very well might not be. It is easy enough to declare ‘my soul is at peace’ when all about us is calm and peaceful. But to speak words of power into the darkness and turmoil of desperate, troubling times is not easy. This bravery wields a confident expectation that is the core of the valiant shieldmaiden of Christ: to declare that He conquers all, that the battle and the strength is truly his. And for those who are His, the victory is already won. It Is Well With My Soul is not wishful thinking or self-delusion. It is a powerful stance that we can and must take in the darkest moments. When Satan bends so much circumstance to his will in order to make us despair, we answer his challenge with the battle cry: you have no power over me. Christ is Victorious, and so it is well with my soul!
