Abba Father, I place this day before You, giving all glory, honour, thanks and praise. I lift You high above every thing in my mind and in my life. I ask for forgiveness of sins of thoughts, words and deeds and know I can ask with confidence, because I will receive. Therefore, I enter this new day, knowing that it represents a new season; gone are the things of old, all things are made new.
Today, I pray, that I will never be the same again. As I aim to keep my physical and spiritual eyes focused, I realise it is something that can only be attained via You. You have said in Your Word, that it is not by might but by Your Spirit. Therefore, everything I wish to do is not by my own efforts, my own strength, my own will-power, my own planning, my own leadership but by what You have anointed me with and made possible. You have chosen me to do great and mighty things, even though I am not worthy. For that I give You thanks. When others look at me, may they see You. As always, I trust in You.
Arise [from spiritual depression to a new life], shine [be radiant with the glory and brilliance of the Lord]; for your light has come,
And the glory and brilliance of the Lord has risen upon you.Isaiah 60:1 (AMP)
Then he said to me, “This [continuous supply of oil] is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel [prince of Judah], saying, ‘Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit [of whom the oil is a symbol],’ says the Lord of hosts.Zechariah 4:6 (AMP)
Therefore if anyone is in Christ [that is, grafted in, joined to Him by faith in Him as Savior], he is a new creature [reborn and renewed by the Holy Spirit]; the old things [the previous moral and spiritual condition] have passed away. Behold, new things have come [because spiritual awakening brings a new life].2 Corinthians 5:17 (AMP)
20 Now may the God of peace [Who is the Author and the Giver of peace], Who brought again from among the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, by the blood [that sealed, ratified] the everlasting agreement (covenant, testament),
21 Strengthen (complete, perfect) and make you what you ought to be and equip you with everything good that you may carry out His will; [while He Himself] works in you and accomplishes that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ (the Messiah); to Whom be the glory forever and ever (to the ages of the ages).
Amen (So be it)Hebrews 13:20-21 (AMPC)
