Abba! Father! God of power, might, strength and love, I give You all glory, honour and praise for this day, which has been placed before me. It is Your will that I have been given another 24 hours and I am able to do Your good pleasure; and for that I give You thanks. Your Word tells me that repentance is the pre-requisite to salvation. Therefore, I ask You to cleanse me of all sin and unrighteousness, so I can go about this day boldly and unhindered, as the songwriter says there is no satisfaction without salvation! Lord, have Your way.
Today, I stand in Your presence, letting any barriers I have down, and then locking in Your Holy Spirit which is a barrier to protect me from the manoeuvres of the enemy. I let down the barriers within me, which are to do with doubts, fears, negativity and anything Godless. These only cause me to forget Your power, might, goodness, strength, peace and love. Such love! If I know not love, it is hard to comprehend the love You have for me. I pray that today, You will enter in and let me truly know of that love, so I may fully comprehend, know and feel what has been done for me. It is only then I can be truly effective in my walk with You. It is only through Your peace that I can receive true fullness of joy. No matter what is occurring around me, if I walk in the gospel of peace, all will be well. I ask that You move within me today, so I may speak, think, move and exist within Your plans and not my own. My Father and my God, I trust in You.
‘Do you not fear Me?’ says the Lord. ‘Do you not tremble [in awe] in My presence? For I have placed the sand as a boundary for the sea, An eternal decree and a perpetual barrier beyond which it cannot pass. Though the waves [of the sea] toss and break, yet they cannot prevail [against the sand ordained to hold them back]; Though the waves and the billows roar, yet they cannot cross over [the barrier]. [Is not such a God to be feared?]Jeremiah 5:22 (AMP)
“Even now,” says the Lord, “Turn and come to Me with all your heart [in genuine repentance], With fasting and weeping and mourning [until every barrier is removed and the broken fellowship is restored];Joel 2:12 (AMP)
For He Himself is our peace and our bond of unity. He who made both groups—[Jews and Gentiles]—into one body and broke down the barrier, the dividing wall [of spiritual antagonism between us],Ephesians 2:14 (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 (AMP)
