Today’s confession is a conglomeration of promises from Father to you. There are over 3,000 promises in the Bible. I have included only twelve.
As you read through this confession, remember that our purpose is to believe Father's word and agree with it. This is not so much as a prayer, but rather a declaration of belief that will help set our minds upon truth. And we all desperately need truth in a world where deception strikes out at us—even in the holiday season. Maybe even especially then.
I encourage you to speak this confession out loud wherever you find yourself today. Whether you are whistling in joyful Christmas preparation or despairing how you will ever survive the holidays, these promises are for you and your situation.
But first, remember this. “All the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God.” (2 Corinthians 1:20) Did you hear that? All of the promises of God are found in that little baby in the manger. He would grow up to be our Wonderful Counselor who would keep His word and reconcile the world to God.
That means for you. For this exact moment.
My Father promises me eternal life found in his son. (John 3:16) My Father promises that nothing can separate me from Him. (Romans 8:38-39) My Father promises that He will walk with me through life, never leaving, failing, or rejecting me. (Joshua 1:5) My Father promises freedom to me. (John 8:36) My Father promises to protect me. (Psalm 91:1-2) My Father promises me that every difficulty I go through, He will work for my good. (Romans 8:28) My Father promises to answer my prayers. (Matthew 7:7) My Father promises to meet all of my needs according to His great and glorious riches found in Jesus Christ. (Philippians 4:19). My Father promises to give me rest, even in this hectic season. (Matthew 11:28-30) My Father promises me to strengthen me with the presence of the Holy Spirit. (Ephesians 3:14-16) My Father has promised me that He has overcome the world through Jesus Christ giving me peace. (John 16:33) I trust my Father in all things. His promises to me are yes and Amen in Jesus Christ! (2 Corinthians 1:20)
Oh, glory! Yes and Amen!
