האל הוא נשקי


Explanation:
האל = The God (Meaning the Lord - almost never used in any other sense)
הוא = is
נשקי = My weapon.

The אדוני (ADONAI) suggested is problematic because, when unpunctuated, also reads ADONI, which simply means "Sir".

And on a personal note: I would suggest against this choice of words. In hebrew it has a strage, unnatural ring to it. Something like האל עמדי (HA'EL IMADI - The Lord is with me) is more appropriate.

disagree  Eynat: Ha'el = God. The asker specifically requested Lord.

  -> True, however: I quote: "to show people that with *god* i can win all battles" (Emphasis mine). And anyway, ADONAI also means just that: God, and subject to misunderstanding as I wrote.
