“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full,” according to John 10:10 in the Bible.
Expect good things. Stop expecting bad. For the plans I have for you are all good.
I came to give you hope and abundant life. Stop speaking the language of lack. Change your language, change your understanding. I am not a God of barely enough. I am a God who can do exceedingly, abundantly more than you can ask or imagine.
At my right hand are blessings, forevermore. I have more available for you but you must believe and hope that it can be possible.
Get your eyes off yourself and get them back on me. Stop being led and controlled by fear. Let your trust and confidence in me be what leads you continually.
When you don’t know what to do, talk to me. When you are afraid, call to me. I will comfort you and give you the confidence to move forward.
Don’t expect to do this alone. You are not alone. I am with you.
Father God, I have moments of fear and doubt. I call out as you beckon me to step into your presence. Wrap confidence around me as a mantel. Let me speak your words of truth and goodness into my life covered by your love and goodness. Place into me the spirit of wisdom and revelation, (Ephesians1:17), to know your will for my life today. Let me hear you speak to me and walk with me out of fear and into hope of your grace, mercy and love. In the name of my Savior Jesus, Amen
