TODAY’S POSITIVE CONFESSION
Say it With Me:
Today is an opportunity not a liability. I AM poised to make progress on the path of purpose. My weaknesses will not defeat me because I rely fully on God’s strength. I AM the bigger person at all times because I refuse to be distracted from reaching my goals. I celebrate my successes, learn from my failures and continue to evolve into better versions of me. I allow God to improve me by adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing however and whoever He sees fit!
Good morning Lord. Fight this battle for me. Keep me in perfect peace. Keep my mind stayed on you. Bless the works of my hands. Thank you for liberally dispensing your Grace. Help me to love as you love, forgive as you forgive, show compassion as you show compassion. God, help me to resist the pull of wordly influence and hold fast to obeying you in every area of my life. Loose your provision for their is no lack in your storehouses. Loose your deliverance in the lives of your people. Loose your healing that physical bodies are made whole and our minds, and spirits are kept strong. O God, show us a more excellent way. Grant us wisdom. Grant us courage that we might keep on keeping on. Forgive us, renew us, lead us. In Jesus name, AMEN.

Ecclesiastes 9:10-11 NKJV
10 Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.
11 I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.

1 Samuel 1:15-18
15 But Hannah answered and said, “No, my lord, I am a woman of sorrowful spirit. I have drunk neither wine nor intoxicating drink, but have poured out my soul before the Lord. 16 “Do not consider your maidservant a wicked woman,[d] for out of the abundance of my complaint and grief I have spoken until now.”
17 Then Eli answered and said, “Go in peace, and the God of Israel grant your petition which you have asked of Him.”
18 And she said, “Let your maidservant find favor in your sight.” So the woman went her way and ate, and her face was no longer sad.
Don’t kill knats with baseball bats. Knats are annoying little creatures which invade our environments by being a nuisance more than anything else. The same can be said of those things and people who cross our paths and test our sel-control and patience. We must be careful not to choose a weapon to rid ourselves of them that does more harm than good to the environment we have to live in when they are gone. A better approach is to find the source or breach which is allowing them access and do the work to ensure that we protect our environment from future invasion.
Lord, thank you for being good and thank you for being God. As we unwrap the gift of today help us to embrace your grace. Whatever cares or concerns we have we place them on your altar that you might move on our behalf. Nothing is too hard for you and we praise you for orchestrating resolution, reconciliation, restoration, revelation, and renewal on our behalf. Move like only you can. Give us godly boldness and courage to face this day. Forgive us Father. We have sinned in thought, word, and deed by what we have done and by what we have left undone. Have mercy on us. Help us to stay focused on the path of purpose. Bless our homes, finances, and relationships. We stand in need of healing in mind, body, and Spirit. Have your way on today. Make our enemies behave. Thank you for being our refuge and strength. Thank you for being a present help. Give us joy on our journey this day. Thank you in advance for the victory. IN JESUS NAME, AMEN.
