Taking My Stand For God
Gracious Heavenly Father, I choose to see myself as You see me in the person of your Son, Jesus: as being invincibly strong and able to do all that is in Your will for me to do. I reject Satan’s deception, lies, and accusations that I am hopelessly weak and defeated. I accept my present spiritual need as a call to renewed vision of the victory of my Lord on the cross. Help me to focus my attention upon the awesome majesty, power, and Sovereign greatness that is yours: YOU CAN DO ANYTHING BUT FAIL!
Help me to see my union with Christ really has made me more than a conqueror. In recognition of that winning ability, let the burden of my trials become an expression of the burden of Jesus Christ; and let me express that burden in tears of concern and times of fasting and prayer. As He consistently won over Evil when here, I claim that same conquering ability, and I choose not to shrink back from the burden You wish for me to carry along with you today.
I recognize, Lord Jesus, that it is chiefly my own selfishness and failure which brings me into great trials, and that You wish to keep me from them. I now freely confess to You any sinful actions or attitudes You reveal to me. Whether actively done or neglectfully omitted, I am deeply sorry for them, and ask you now, O Lord, to forgive and cleanse as I itemize them by name to You . . .
( CONFESS SPECIFICALLY ANYTHING THE HOLY SPIRIT REVEALS TO YOU; ASK GOD TO PLACE IT ALL UNDER THE BLOOD OF JESUS; REPENT – TURN AWAY FROM IT – AND CLAIM VICTORY OVER IT IN JESUS’S NAME. )
I NOW TAKE BACK FROM SATAN ALL THE GROUND I HAVE GIVEN HIM BY MY NEGLECT, SELF-CENTEREDNESS, or CARELESSNESS. ON THE AUTHORITY OF THE CROSS I RECLAIM ALL OF THAT GROUND FOR THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, AND FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
Precious Lord Jesus, you promised never to leave or forsake me. I know that is true, and I boldly say, “The LORD is my helper and I refuse to fear.” I resist the devil and his kingdom, and I stand firm in the faith You have made possible. I COMMAND SATAN AND HIS DEMONS TO LEAVE ME ALONE; I BIND THEIR WORKS TO THEM IN YOUR AUTHORITY, LORD JESUS, AND COMMAND THEM TO GO WHERE YOU SEND THEM. THEY HAVE NO BUSINESS HERE (Matthew 16:18-19).
Heavenly Father, I accept and choose to enjoy everything inscribed in Your Word, and on the pages of your will for my life. I thank You that I really CAN do all things through Christ who is my strength. I will accept my responsibility to be strong in my spirit. I thank You that through my Lord Jesus you have heard my prayer. I also thank You that you will make me to walk this day so strong in Your Light and Holiness that even Hell’s most devious, most powerful strategies are already defeated!
In Jesus’s name, and for Your glory I pray all this: AMEN!
WALK CONFIDENTLY INTO YOUR DAY. GOD WALKS WITH YOU!
