Father, every good and perfect gift comes from You. You’re so good to us though we’re undeserving, it’s easy to delight ourselves in You—with a bonus.
You’ll give us the desires of our heart.
And you’ve done so already. We’re enjoying freedom, opportunities in ministry and career, family and friendships, and the realization of long-held dreams.
And while we’re warned the struggle is continuing to desire You above all else, some of us experience a different struggle.
We fear we’ll lose the very things we longed for.
We anticipated these blessings and now we’re afraid they’ll be ripped from us. But fear is not our portion.
You command us not to fear because You didn’t give us that spirit, but a spirit of power, love and a sound mind.
Yet our enemy is a thief desiring to intimidate us. He comes to steal our confidence, kill our joy, and destroy our testimony. But You are our light and our salvation.
You expose his empty threats and deliver us from all our fears.
And while your Word says it’s the wicked who ought to fear, because everything they’re afraid of will overcome them. You give the righteous the desires of our hearts. Hallelujah!
So when fear closes in around us, we resist the enemy’s attempts to convince us we share his fate. We declare our righteousness as your BLOOD bought children.
And the enemy has to flee.
Thank You for surrounding what’s surrounding us. There are always more with us than with those against us. And we thank You the blood of Jesus distinguishes between the covered and the cursed.
We’re no longer slaves to fear!
In Jesus’ name. Amen.
