Struggling with the same things...
It’s me again. Struggling with the same things I seem to always be wrestling with. I’m afraid. I’m worried. I feel anxious. I’m overwhelmed. But in this darkness, help me to see your light. By faith I believe, you’re breaking through all the mess, all the brokenness, all the shame, all the stuff that tries to keep me trapped in the old patterns and former ways. By faith I stand strong in you. By faith I say to the darkness and lies, “No more, no way.” By faith I declare that you are greater than any struggle, any problem, any difficulty I may face here on this earth.
Lord, I believe you’re made me for your unique purpose and plan. And I’m choosing to follow closely after you today. I’m listening for your voice and watching for the ways you’re at work. I’m breaking up with this unhealthy relationship with fear and leaving it in the dust. I’m showing up for battle today. I’m putting on the armor of God and picking up the sword of Spirit. I know you are with me and you fill my days with your strength and power.
“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10
