Today's affirmation from A Year In The Now...

"[For Abraham, human reason for] hope being gone, hoped on in faith that he should become the father of many nations, as he had been promised . . . ."
(Romans 4:18 – AMP)

Today I will live in the now! I will live in the now because my ability to walk by faith and not by sight enables me to dare to do what hasn't been done before. God has called me to be a pioneer and a visionary, so I must keep believing, no matter what things look like in the natural realm. The testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy, and His witness in my inner man propels me to fulfill all the prophecies spoken over my life!

Today I will repent of any religious attitudes that remain in me, refusing to revere the past, as I recognize new realms of revelation. I make the decision to live this day in the now, because no matter what report I hear from the religious, who are rebellious to the realities of Christ, I realize that these are the good "new" days, and they are getting better, because the best is yet to come!

Today I will not be afraid of the radical change that comes from living in the now. The fire that is shut up in my bones is ignited by the Holy Ghost, and He is effective in all of His endeavors to establish and enlighten me.

Today I will keep believing as I see the plan for my life unfold. Even if I don't know the next step to take, I remember that Abraham went out, not knowing where he was going (Hebrews 11:8), so I move with God in faith and trust for His moment-by-moment direction. In Him I move.

Today I will listen for God's voice, for faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God!

Today I will meditate His Word, in an effort to locate the gifts of faith which He has imparted to me.

Today I will be glad that change is on the horizon, and that I am not frozen in time so that I am unable to accept it. Today, when I pray, "Let Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven," I will really mean it from the bottom of my heart – I will pray it in faith! I want heaven to change this earth, and I will continue in my believing to see that God's Word is performed in my surroundings. Even if everybody else in the world gives up on their faith today, I will keep on keeping on, because I have come too far to turn back now! Today my faith will put me over, and today I will live in the now!

By faith, in Jesus’ name, I will keep believing today!

Today's affirmation from A Year In The Now...

"Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart;
Wait, I say, on the Lord!
(Psalm 27:14)

Today I will live in the now! I will live in the now because my heart is strong and resilient – it is the heart of a warrior, a winner, and a world-overcomer. I am more than a survivor, I am a conqueror...and in Christ I am MORE than a conqueror! He has changed me into a champion, enabling me to do exploits in His Name, waxing strong as I wait on Him! God is my strength, and His strength is my weapon against the enemies of my destiny.

Today I will be of good courage, regardless of what I hear. Bad news and negative reports will not affect me today because God is my strength, and His strength is the Life Force that keeps me going in a positive direction.

Today I will speak confidently and courageously concerning my current circumstances. God is my strength, and His strength is the source of my confession (". . . Let the weak SAY ‘I am strong.'" – Joel 3:10). I say that I am strong in Him, and in my weakness He is made strong!

Today I will stay true to my vision, and I will not perish because my life is motivated by it. God is my strength, and His strength is the vision that is written on my heart – the one that I read and run with to His glory!

Today I will manifest all the grace that I need to do great things for God, as well as for mankind. His grace is my equipping for service, and is sufficient for me to do the impossible. God is my strength, and His strength graces me in every way today.

Today I will rise to the top by my ability to make good decisions. I am strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might, so I decide to overcome weakness and incompetence by exercising my spiritual muscles. God is my strength, and His strength enables me to choose the right path for my life today.

Today I will have the charisma that I need to be persuasive and influential. I have the power to salt the earth and light the world – to be a positive force in my community – to hold up a standard of righteousness. God is my strength, and His strength is a gift to be treasured. Today I will share that gift with others, and today I will live in the now!

In Jesus’ name, I will be bold and courageous today!
