Powerful words for a new year

A new year, and with it comes a hunger for the new things He has waiting for us.  This morning I wrote out a simple daily "confession", based on God's Word, that I want to teach my kids...and myself!!...to say everyday.  Choosing to set our minds on what He says, and then using our words to declare His promises reaps a bountiful harvest.   Our faith comes by hearing, so as we speak it out, our faith is built, and our lives are changed!!  I know I continue to have areas that need "re-programming" with His Truth, and what a joy that His Word is powerful and mighty to save, able to renew and transform.  

May we know more of Him this year...oh, how we need Him and how He longs to be gracious to us.  The plans He has for you are filled with hope, and today He rejoices over you with sweet songs of delight!

Daily Confession 2012

This is the day the Lord has made and I WILL rejoice and be glad in it.  God has done great things for me and I am filled with joy.

My God sits on the throne and is faithful and true. He is mighty over everything I will face today. I have authority over the enemy's schemes, by the power of Christ who lives in me.  The Holy Spirit teaches me all things, and as I trust in Him, He leads me in the way I should go.

My body is healthy and strong, every part functioning just like it should. By Jesus' stripes I am healed, and I am able to do all things through Christ who gives me strength.

My mind is sound and alert, able to understand things easily, especially the word of God.  I choose to think on things that are true, right and pure. 

My heart is at peace today as I walk in the forgiveness and love of Jesus, and quickly show forgiveness and love to those around me. My God of hope fills me with all joy and peace, as I trust in Him. 

Today, I choose to honor and trust in Jesus. He is aware of everything that concerns me, and has good plans in store for my life.  He is my Savior, my Shield, my Help and my Friend. I live to know Him and make His glory known.
