Yes, you've been knocked down, but you must discontinue in your own strength and speak to your spirit saying, "Greater is he that is within me than he that is in the world." "Father, I can do all things through you who strengthens and enable me." "Lord, you are my help in the time of trouble."
Why have you succumbed to defeat when there are so many scriptures to empower your spirit man? Your enemy has given his best shots. Now it's your time, get back in the ring of life and begin to fight as if your life depended on it. Only this time your strategy will be struggling with the word of God!
Father, restore my mind and cause me to focus on your word in my attempts today to achieve victory over the obstacles that were posted in my path. Elevate me spiritually to see beyond my temporary circumstances. Assist me in guiding my tongue to avoid complaining and begin speaking what I desire to see as opposed to agreeing through my confessions of the negative things that are being displayed before me.
Lord, enable me to possess the power and the mindset like your servant Job, who continued to worship and praise you in spite of everything going in the opposite direction of his desires.
THIS DAY. I WILL ARISE, THIS DAY I WILL SPRING FORWARD, THIS DAY I WILL AWAKE FROM MY SLUMBER, THIS DAY I WILL BREAK LOOSE FROM THE CHAINS OF PROCRASTINATION, LAZINESS ALONG WITH THAT NEGATIVE PATTERN OF THINKING. I will achieve all of this by the grace, mercy, favor, strength, and Spirit of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen!
