Today I declare my faith in God the Father, through His Son, Jesus Christ. Freely forgiven, declared righteous, and set apart by the mercy of God to radiate His love and extend His grace, bearing witness to Christ who lives in me.
My Father is for me and will never be against me. His delight is in the purity of my soul and longs to give me the desires of my heart. Spending time with the Father comes when I spend time with His Son, Jesus. In those moments the Holy Spirit fills my heart with joy and peace that is not to be found here on earth. My heart is lifted to new heights where I am able to soar high above life’s challenges where fear and anxiety cannot find me. Here my soul rejoices as I yield before a Holy God and proclaim, my flesh and my heart may fail, but you God are the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
Therefore, savor every moment of today, for your Father above has portioned it perfectly. Lift your eyes to heaven and declare your trust, giving thanks, for He is your portion and in Him you will wait. He knows what you like, He knows what you need and He knows how much you can endure. For the Father knows the needs of His own and your soul will find pleasure as you feast upon the goodness of His provisions.
Choose than this day the table for which you will dine. The buffet table and its spread of delicacies to indulge your desires or the banquet table set by your Father, overflowing with the richest of fare for you to enjoy.
Faith in God is trusting the hand that provides for you, believing the Father knows you better than you know yourself. Therefore, except your portion whatever it may be, for the Lord is good to those who wait on Him to the one who seeks Him and finds their hope in Him.
Walk on my friend, you are His beloved!
