God Has Spoken

When you don’t understand what God is doing, remember what God has spoken.

Here are just a few of the examples of what the Lord has spoken over you, what He says about you.

  • I am a child of God. (John 1:12)
  • I am God’s workmanship. (Ephesians 2:10)
  • I am totally and completely forgiven. (1 John 1:9)
  • I am God’s Child. (Galatians 3:26)
  • I am Jesus’ friend. (John 15:15)
  • I am a whole new person with a whole new life. (2 Corinthians 5:17)
  • I am a place where God’s Spirit lives. (1 Corinthians 6:19)
  • I am totally and completely forgiven. (1 John 1:9)
  • I am created in God’s likeness. (Ephesians 4:24)
  • I am a citizen of Heaven. (Philippians 3:20)
  • I am greatly loved. (Romans 5:8)

This is what the Lord says about you. This should be the basis of how we view our stories, our circumstances and our lives.

You are loved by God. You are a child of God. You are in the presence of God. You are forgiven by God. When we remember and live by these words, we can join Mary and say this prayer as well: “May it be done to me according to your word.”

This is a very short list of the statements God has said over you. When the plot twists come, when the sudden turn of events happen, who will you trust?

When decision time comes and you can follow Jesus or you can follow the crowd, who will you trust? Will you start writing out your own version of how things will end? Or will you trust God?

Will you react in fear or respond in faith?
