What can you declare today?

Sometimes along the journey, there are moments when I have to stop to ponder what I know to be true, and simply declare it. It’s the times when circumstances get confusing, disappointment comes, or doubt creeps in. Life is full of perplexing thoughts, but our God is steady and true. For the past month or so, I’ve been thinking about what I know to be true. It started with a study of 1 John (a letter all about “knowing”), and then intensified as our family began walking through some personal challenges. As I’ve pondered this in recent weeks, here’s a sample of some things I know to be true:

  • God is gracious, kind, and good
  • God’s love is pure, unselfish, and unearned
  • God always keeps His promises…always
  • God’s aware of the smallest details of my life
  • God’s decisions are right, regardless of appearances
  • God’s provisions aren’t just good, they’re the best
  • God’s Word is true, living, and relevant
  • God has never, ever failed me before…and He won’t now!

Those are a few of mine. What are some things you can declare today?

    As I sit printing a worksheet I reflect on the recent terror attacks in France. The news said, ” how do you fight a people who are willing to die with bombs strapped to their flesh.” These words appeared in my mind, but Christians also willingly give their lives, the only difference is we do not take other lives with us, in Terror, and only for God do we stand, not for what worldly gain in life or after death. So Praise be to those beheaded, set on fire, raped , beaten or worse for they gave All to Honor God, I pray I will be as courageous for his name.

    So nice to find your site, and few follow here! This is such a timely reminder for me personally, and the encouragement is much appreciated. I am reminded of the Amplified Bible’s definition of “faith” as “the leaning of the entire personality on God in Christ in absolute trust and confidence in His power, wisdom, and goodness.” Thank you for a thoughtful and authentic post.
