Morning Prayer, Wednesday, August 21, 2019 - WORD(S) OF THE DAY: KEEP YOUR GUARD UP
Father God, help me to learn how to speak positive affirmations daily over my life that will become blockers for any negative thoughts the enemy tries to throw at me. Amen
“For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church,.” Ephesians 5;29
"Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things." I Corinthians 13:4-7
“Keep your guard up and protect your heart.” Do you know that what you think and say about yourself is your reality? Whether spoken in a positive or negative light, every word we speak can impact our lives on a grand scale. Sometimes, we say things not giving a second thought that what we spoke can have long-term ramifications. Suppose you were sitting by the phone waiting on an important call from a potential employer. The person was supposed to call an hour ago. You are now anxious and even frustrated. Someone says to you, "Maybe that job is not for you. You really don't have the experience." Do you believe them? Should you believe them? I can tell you from experience that God has opened doors for many of us to job opportunities and we had no experience. The enemy waits to pounce when we have our guard down. Wallowing in self-pity or frustration brings our guard down. Doubt and fear brings our guard down. For us Christians, the Bible tells us "Be anxious for nothing." We have to learn how to speak God’s Word over our lives. Find positive affirmations that you can speak over your life every morning and especially in times when you feel your guard slipping. Those affirmations can come from God’s Word, “I am the head and not the tail,” “I am an overcomer,” "I am strong and courageous," “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me,” “I am blessed coming in and going out.” You are all these things and more.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.." John 3:16
