". . . Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!" (Mark 9:24)
Today I will live in the now! I will live in the now because my attitude of expectancy is creating for me today an atmosphere in which miracles can be incubated and birthed! I was born for the miraculous – for the RESTORING OF ORDER TO A CHAOTIC ENVIRONMENT. God has placed me in my own, personal Garden of Eden, so that I can subdue my part of the earth. I will, therefore, make a demand on the supernatural to accomplish my Kingdom responsibilities, facing the chaotic disorder around me and taking dominion!
Today I will tap into the miraculous for the RECOVERING OF SIGHT TO THE BLIND. God has made me a seer, so that I can shine His great light on those who sit in gross darkness. He will prove Himself, through me, to those in my world who do not believe, and I will speak the truth to them without fear.
Today I will bring supernatural restoration to those who have been disappointed in covenant relationships for the REPAIRING OF THE BREACH. I will be willing to be a physician of the soul to those who are disconnected by their own sin-consciousness and self-condemnation. My miraculous words of grace and mercy will set the captives free in ways that will amaze all who are involved.
Today I will believe for the impossible for the REALIZING OF MY OWN HEADSHIP. Miracles are standard procedure for me because of my royal sonship and position in Christ and, even though I do not take them for granted, I do expect them to occur on a regular basis – including right now!
Today I will believe that God has miraculously released me from any sin-debt, and has created a new resume' for me for the REWRITING OF MY HISTORY. Because He has not dealt with me according to my sins, nor rewarded me according to my iniquities, He has seen my past in the most positive light possible. I am who He says I am – righteous, holy, above reproach – a miracle!
Today I will expect miracles in the mind for the REPENTING OF CONTINUAL THOUGHT-PATTERNS. I will change my world by changing my mind — and I will start today.
Today I will walk in authority while yielding myself to the Holy Spirit, submitting myself to the will of the Father for the REVEALING OF CHRIST IN ME. I will demonstrate that this revelation actually is the hope of glory, and will be an instrument to help others find it for themselves. Today I will make the miracle of the God-man a reality to my world, and today I will live in the now!
Father, help me to believe big today. In Jesus’ name, amen.
