By Your word everything was made that is in heaven or on earth or under the earth. You formed us from the dust of the ground, breathed Your breath into us, and gave us life. When we disobeyed, rebelled against You, and lived in bondage to sin, You sent the Deliverer to give His life to set us free. By Your great power, You raised Him from the dead so that through faith in Him we are rescued from the dominion of darkness and brought into the kingdom of Your light and life and love.
Anne Graham Lotz wrote a book, "The Daniel Prayer." In that book she wrote this prayer," A Prayer That IS Confident." I try to use it every day. I want to share this with you in parts as I did with the "I WILL FIGHT."
A Prayer That Is Confident
Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God? — John 11:40
Great God of Creation, Lord of the Universe, the God who parted the Red Sea, You are the God of the impossible who makes a way when there is no way. We worship You as our God. We exalt You as One whose Name is above every name. You have no equal. You stand in the solitude of Yourself.
Your righteous right hand hung the stars in space, shattered Your enemies, and holds us, Your children by covenant, safe and secure. Who is like You — majestic in holiness, awesome in glory, working wonders?
Ultimately, the Bible says, the devil is the source of all temptation; he is called "the tempter" in Matthew 4:3. But he is only able to succeed because we let him- and we let him succeed because of our own weakness.
This is one reason why we need Christ. Only He can forgive us when we sin, and only when He can give us strength, by the power of His Spirit, to resist temptation. And in His encounter with the devil at the beginning of His ministry He pointed the way to victory: Using the truth of God's Word to counteract Satan lies.
" Jesus said to him,"Away from me,Satan! For it is written:' Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only." Then the devil left him." -Matthew 4:10-11
The cross is before me, The world is behind me. I'll never turn back. I'll never give up. I'll never settle .I'll never stop short. I will press toward the mark for the prize that is already mine. For I am persuaded, that neither death, not life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, neither height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation shall be able to separate me from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. And if God is for me, who can be against me. I WILL FIGHT.
Now for the last seven days I have been publishing this declaration of victory for you . If you will speak this out loud every day. You will begin to notice something. Your faith will began to increase as you place your trust in Him and know who you are.
I have determined to build my life on the solid foundation of God's perfect Word. By faith I will activate every promise He has made, and I will aim these promises of mass destruction obliterating every opponent of Jesus Christ. The weapons God has given me have divine power. I defy and defeat sin because of the finished work of Christ my Savior. I am whole heartedly devoted to the cause God made me for I have no intention of letting the world define me because I know who I am. A humble warrior, a good soldier, a strong and mighty servant of the living God. In Christ I am courageous. In Christ I am confident. My heart is steadfast. My purpose is immovable. I am always abounding in the work of the Lord and my potential is unlimited because the limitless God lives within me. I WILL FIGHT.
