“Many, Lord, are asking, “Who will bring us prosperity?”
Let the light of your face shine on us.
Fill my heart with joy
when their grain and new wine abound. In peace I will lie down and sleep,
for you alone, Lord,
make me dwell in safety.” -Psalm 4:6-8
God protects me. He interacts with me and He speaks to me. God provides for me. He illuminates the earth, heaven, and my life. God strengthens me and He walks with me. God loves me and He will never leave me. God has sanctified me and He has a sacred purpose for my life. The Bible is full of God’s promises. Those are just a few of God’s promises and I have claimed them.
- God protects me.
Grow strong in the Light of My Presence. As My Face shines upon you, you receive nutrients that enhance your growth in grace. I designed you to commune with Me face-to-Face, and this interaction strengthens your soul. -Sarah Young, Jesus Calling
One of the wonderful things about Scripture is that you’ll never exhaust it. You can study it for a thousand years, and God will still speak through it. -Walking With God, Life Principle #28
God doesn’t promise success or failure, He promises He’ll be with us. – Bob Goff
“If God is for us, who can be against us?” -Romans 8:31
- God interacts with me, and He speaks to me.
“Ask and ye shall receive.” We grouse before God, we are apologetic or apathetic, but we ask very few things. Yet what a splendid audacity a childlike child has! Our Lord says- “Except ye become as little children.” Ask, and God will do. Give Jesus Christ a chance, give Him elbow room, and no man will ever do this unless he is at his wits’ end. When a man is at his wits end it is not a cowardly thing to pray, it is the only way he can get in touch with Reality. Be yourself before God and present your problems, the things you know you have come to your wits’ end over. As long as you are self-sufficient, you do not need to ask God for anything.” -Oswald Chambers
- God provides for me.
“And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” -Philippians 4:19
God doesn’t withhold any good thing from those who live righteously (Psalms 84:11).” When we place our trust fully in the Lord, He provides the very best for us (Psalms 81:10, 16).
- God illuminates earth, heaven, and my life.
“The city had no need of the sun or the moon to shine in it, “for the glory” of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light.” Revelation 21:23
- God strengthens me.
“He wants us to be, not hothouse plants, but storm-beaten oaks; not sand dunes driven with every gust of wind, but granite rocks withstanding the fiercest storms. To make us such He must bring us into His testing room of suffering. Many of us need no other argument than our own experiences to prove that suffering is indeed God’s testing room of faith.” Better the storm with Christ, than smooth waters without Him. -Streams in the Desert
“I can do everything through Christ who strengthens me.” -Philippians 4:13
- God walks with Me.
No Christian has ever been called to “go it alone” in his or her walk of faith. -Walking With God, Life Principle #28
“He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.
And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God.” -Micah 6:8
- God loves me. God will never leave me.
“Make sure that your character is free from the love of money, being content with what you have; for He Himself has said, “I will never desert you, nor will I ever forsake you.” —Hebrews 13:5
- God has sanctified me and He has a sacred purpose for my life.
“For I know the plans that I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for calamity, to give you a future and a hope.” -Jeremiah 29:11
Dr. Charles Stanley says “The heavenly Father has a grand plan for the life of every person, and it can be summed up in the word sanctification. In its verb form- sanctify- the term means “to make holy” or “to separate”.
So when something is sanctified, it is separated from its former common usage and is dedicated for sacred purposes. The heavenly Father still sanctifies people today. Before a person places his faith in the Savior, he is dead and, in fact, an enemy of God. But the moment someone chooses to trust in Jesus Christ, his sins are wiped away, and he is adopted into God’s family. That individual is set apart as a child of God, with a sacred purpose. This means believers are not here to chase after personal gain but to serve the Lord and bring Him honor and glory.”
