Today’s post came to mind after an interesting day in Court. I handled my first hearing in Family Court and the judge was a bit harsh. At one point, she cut me off and proceeded to raise her voice because she felt as though I was taking too long to make my point. When this happened, my first reaction was to take offense however God quickly reminded me that He was in control so I remained calm. I had already prayed over the day so there was nothing for me to do but simply stand in God’s confidence (Godfidence).
Shortly after losing her temper, the judge found herself flustered and at a loss for words. She lowered her voice, asked if I had anything else to add and kindly granted my motion. Moments after I exited the courthouse, the following declaration came to mind. As I spoke these words over my life, I was reminded of the power of our God, our speech and God’s Word.
In sharing them, I hope that you too are reminded of just how favored you are…simply because you belong to God.
“The same God that goes before me, goes behind me. His favor surrounds me like a shield and it thwarts the work of the enemy. When challenges are presented to me, I will face them in confidence knowing that God has already equipped me for victory. I do not have to walk in fear of any decision or situation when God has already said that my future is in His hands. The only thing that I need to do is trust God.
I do not need to trust fear when life becomes challenging. I do not need to trust fear when I am uncertain of the unknown. I do not ever, have to choose to fear in life because I have a God who says the plans for my life are good (Jer. 29:11).
Today, and everyday I will commit myself to trusting in God for every decision that I need to make–big or small. I believe that 2014 is my season for exponential growth and development.
I will see God take me further faster because of the plan that He has for me. I know that God has already provided an abundance of grace, favor, mercy and resources for me. Everything that I declare shall come to pass in my life. Things that have taken years to come to pass are going to happen this year. God is pulling out every resource to bless me and the works of my hands. Every seed that I sow shall produce a mighty harvest and shall increase my land.
I know that God has a blessing in store for me. It has my name on it and it is coming today!
In the name of Jesus, Amen!”
