Good morning journey companion,
As I start my day I consistently do my best to take captive my thoughts and make them submit to God. I begin to pray and affirm who God says I am. I remind myself of who I was before and how God has transformed me.
The biggest hurdle in all of this is not being distracted by my own desires of my flesh to complain to God and ask for things that may not even serve me in this season.
Yesterday I was extremely encouraged by a reading that spoke about talking to the mountains in our lives about who God is instead of talking to God about the mountain in our way.
The concept was so powerful to me. It moved me to stand in the bus stop and praise God for who He designed me to be and tell some mountains in my life the have got to go. They have got to throw themselves into the ocean. The have got to move out of my way because I serve a God who is bigger, stronger, and mightier than any hurdle I may face.
This declaration was freeing. I felt lighter. It wasn’t because I put my Cares on Jesus but because I took the written word of God and put it into action with the authority given to me by the power of the Holy Spirit through the work of Jesus Christ on the cross.
There is a fire down inside of me that got ignited yesterday. It caught a spark of God’s word and set me ablaze. It took my insecurities and turn them into powerful action items in my life.
I felt empowered and safe enough to say out loud I am the daughter of the most high God. I bow to no mountain in my life. I submit to no struggle, stronghold, bondage, or generational curse.
I command Satan to remove his hands from my marriage, my family, my thoughts, my community, and every place I place my feet I step upon Satan’s head.
As a Christian life coach I struggled with the idea affirmations. But yesterday I affirmed not only who God is in my life but who He has and is creating me to be. I have God’s word written in my heart for moments that I need to fight a battle in prayer.
I submit to God our father this prayer. Please let every word we read in the Bible cling to our hearts, build a foundation in our minds, replace the thoughts that were not serving us.
Jehovah Tsuri – Lord the rock I stand, my fortress and foundation. I pray to know you more. I pray that we build our lives on who you are. I pray that our hope is based on an eternal life and moving mountains.
My God who is doing a work in us to look more like Jesus please keep us in your secret places and refine our mind, our body, and our soul. Set our spirit on fire daily to chase after you to be more like you in this world.
God I pray your mighty will in and around our lives all the days of our lives as we search for heavenly experiences here on earth. I pray for the communities that build us up like fortified cities in Your word, character, truth, and love. I pray this and so much more in Jesus holy and mighty name amen.
