Message 25:  CONQUERING MODERN DAY GIANTS


Scripture: "David said to the Philistine, 'You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.'" - 1 Samuel 17:45

Today' affirmation draws upon the story of David, who, despite being an unlikely candidate, trusted in God's power to deliver him from the colossal Philistine warrior Goliath. David's unwavering faith in God's strength enabled him to face Goliath head-on, strengthened by the belief that the Almighty God fought alongside him. 

The scripture portrays David's fearless declaration to Goliath, emphasizing his profound trust in God despite the overwhelming odds against him. By reminding ourselves of David's unyielding faith, we are encouraged to cultivate a similar level of faith and belief in our own lives when encountering challenges and giants of our own.


Speak The Following Affirmation, Especially When Confronted By Fear or Problems:   "I am filled with unshakable faith and courageous determination, just like David when he faced Goliath. With each obstacle that comes my way, I rise fearlessly, knowing that God's strength and favor reside within me."

Message 24:  GOD OUR PROTECTOR




"The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower." - Psalm 18:2


Christians can be skeptical of seeing God as their protector and relying on Him instead of themselves.  The most prevalent reason is because they have seen plenty of people who pray for protection and still suffer harm. "What's the point?" they may be think.


We can understand this thinking, but as Christians, looking to God for protection is a crucial part of our faith. The Bible repeatedly reminds us to put our trust in God and not ourselves, as He knows what is best for our lives. In fact, Proverbs 3:5-6 says, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight."


It's important to remember that God doesn't promise to shield us from harm and trials, but He does promise to be with us through them. Even when things seem tough, we can trust that He has a greater plan and purpose for our lives. Take Daniel, for example. When he was thrown into the lions' den, he didn't pray for protection from harm. Instead, he put his faith in God and trusted that He had a plan for his life. As a result, God protected him and brought him out unscathed. God will do the same for you too as you put your faith in Him daily.  Go here for my article on the subject:

Affirmation: "I trust in the Lord and find refuge in His mighty arms. He is my shield and protector, and I take comfort in the knowledge that He will shelter me from harm. Even though I may walk through dark valleys, He is with me every step of the way. Through Him, I can find joy in times of trouble and rest in His loving presence forevermore."

Message 23:  LET GOD DIRECT YOUR PATH DAILY 


Proverbs 3:5-6,  5. "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths."


As you seek to honor and follow God's word each day, remember that He promises to guide and protect you with His unfailing love and truth. Draw inspiration from verses like Joshua 1:8, which reminds us to meditate on His teachings and obey them continually, and Proverbs 3:5-6, which calls us to trust in the Lord with all our hearts and acknowledge Him in all our ways. 

Affirm The Following Personalized Statement:
I am filled with gratitude for God's infinite love and wisdom, which guides me on my journey of faith. I honor His word by seeking to understand it and live it out every day, knowing that obedience brings blessings and peace. With His help, I will strive to be a light in the world, sharing His love and truth through my actions and my words. May my heart always be open to His Spirit, and may my life be a testament to His grace. Amen.

Message 22:  YOU ARE COMPLETE IN CHRIST!



As believers in Christ, we stand firm in the knowledge that we are complete in Him. Colossians 2:10 reminds us that we lack nothing when we are rooted in the foundation of faith.

When we face challenges or doubts, it can be easy to forget this truth. But when we take time to meditate on His Word and remember His promises, we are able to find the strength to press on.

In Him, we have the power to overcome any obstacle that may come our way. Whether it's fear, doubt, or uncertainty, we can trust that He has already overcome the world and that we are more than conquerors through Him.

With every step we take, we can walk confidently, knowing that we are not alone. He is with us, guiding us and providing for us every step of the way.

So let us embrace Colossians 2:10 and fix our eyes on the Author and Finisher of our faith. Let us find joy in knowing that we are complete in Him, and that nothing can ever separate us from His love.

May our hearts be filled with the peace that surpasses all understanding, and may we live each day with purpose and intention, knowing that we are called to be a light in this world.

For with God, all things are possible, and we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.

Affirm: I am rooted in the Word of God, and therefore in the foundation of Godly faith. Therefore, I lack nothing and I can do all things in Christ.
