All powerful Heavenly Father, in Jesus’ Name, thank you for the sacrifice Your Son made on the cross on my behalf. This allowed me to be washed by His blood and gives me an opportunity to be in Your presence and to share in the victory of Jesus Christ over Satan.

Colossians 1:12-14Giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light. He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.

Living in this chaotic world with evil and sin all around, it is a great privilege to know that there is nothing that can conquer You, and that Jesus has overcome the world.

Jesus, because of my born again relationship with You, ​and Your gift of the Holy Spirit dwelling within me, I can rely on Your promise in 1 John 4:4. “You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in You is greater than he [Satan] who is in the world.

Direct me to constantly open my eyes to see that Your gift of salvation changes everything for me. You have given me purpose, power, and protection through Your work on the cross. Have this truth filter into every part of my life. You are my hope and light. Since Your victory over Satan is the greatest news the earth has ever heard, give me the courage and wisdom to share that news to those around me who are still lost and need You.

In Jesus’ Name, thank you for Your Word, the Bible, that explains all of this good news. Amen.

Encouraging Heavenly Father, I come in the Name of Jesus to give You praise and thanks for the encouragement that comes through trusting in You. When all looks bleak and things are far from what I had expected or wanted, Your loving presence fills me with hope.

When I am in need of encouragement, direct me to do like David did in 1 Samuel 30:6. “Now David was greatly distressed, for the people spoke of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and his daughters. But David strengthened himself in the LORD his God. 

First step: Remind me to look back at all the past victories over sin and darkness that have been accomplished in Jesus’ Name. There have been many events recorded in the Bible and in more current history where You stepped in and redeemed even the worst situations. This is true in my own personal life as well. John 16:33These things have I spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.

Second step: Remind me that I am under Your divine protection. You can command Your angels to provide protection from the forces of evil. Psalm 121:7-8The LORD shall preserve you from all evil; He shall preserve your soul. The LORD shall preserve your going out and your coming in from this time forth, and even forevermore.

Third step: Remind me as a child of Yours of the many powerful attributes You as my loving father have in directing and watching over me. 1 Chronicles 29:11Yours O LORD, is the greatness, the power and the glory, the victory and the majesty; for all that is in heaven and in earth is Yours; Yours is the kingdom, O LORD, and You are exalted as head over all.

I ask that I would continually see You more clearly and be in pursuit of developing my relationship with You until I ultimately see Jesus face to face. Amen.
