“I think that God gives you your own will and choices. I don’t believe that we’re supposed to drag ourselves through life defeated and not see God’s blessings. But you have to make the right choices and follow that still, small voice within you. Because I think that’s how God leads us.” (Joel Osteen)
Here is my daily confession: I am the body of Christ so Satan has no power over me and I overcome evil with good. (I Corinthians 12:27; Romans 12:21) No weapon formed against me shall prosper, for my righteousness is of (from) the Lord. But whatever I do will prosper for I’m like a tree that’s planted by the rivers of water. (Isaiah 54:17; Psalm 1:3) My God will meet all my needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:19) I am of (from) God and have overcome Satan, because the one who is in me is greater than the one who is in the world. (1 John 4:4) I will fear no evil, for You are with me, Lord; Your Word and Your Spirit they comfort me. (Psalm 23:4) I am far from oppression, and fear does not come near me. (Isaiah 54:14) I am delivered from the evil of this present world for it is the will of God… (Galatians1:4) I am a doer of the Word of God and I am blessed in my deeds. (James 1:22) I take the shield of faith and quench every fiery dart that the wicked one brings against me. (Ephesians 6:16) Christ has redeemed me from the curse of the law. Therefore, I forbid any sickness or disease to come upon this body. Every disease germ and every virus that touches this body dies instantly in the name of Jesus. Every organ and every tissue of this
body functions in the perfection to which God created it to function. And I forbid any malfunction in this body, in the name of Jesus. (Galatians 3:13; Romans 8:11; Genesis 1:30; Matthew 16:19) I am an overcomer and I overcome by the blood of the lamb and the word of my testimony. (Revelation 12:11)
But what happens when there’s a delay? Habakkuk 2:3 says, “But these things I plan won’t happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow,[a] do not despair, for these things will surely come to pass. Just be patient! They will not be overdue a single day!”
