Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful
How often do we spiral down into the dialogue of doubt? Instead of holding fast to our confession of hope in a faithful God, we begin to question His promises and doubt His Word.
In the coming year, practice the priority of behaving as if it were so—as if the promise of God was an in-living-color reality in your here and now. Romans 4:17 assures us that God breathes life into the dead; He calls those things which do not exist as though they already do. Even when those dreams seem down for the count, be confident that He is at work.
Eliminate the “if God moves” or “if God answers” from your vocabulary. Instead, begin to thank Him for the fulfillment of the promise – that He heard your prayer, that He is making a way, that He is healing your body, that He is providing for your needs.
Behave as though the breakthrough has come! Confess your hope, your alert expectancy for all that God is doing. Declare that you will rejoice right now, that you are one day closer to the answer.
Agree with Him that, even though it is not visible to you yet, the answer already exists in heavenly places. He is working everything out for good. Say it is so. Act like the answer has arrived!
May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. Abide in Christ. Allow His words to come alive in you. And whatever you ask, in His name, shall be done! Amen and amen.
