We all will go through difficult times while we here living in this fallen world and if this is the place where you are right now where it seems as though a lot of hardships and trials are hitting you all at once and your are struggling with doubt and despair. And you’re looking to the Lord for comfort and reassurance, and for Him to give you a promise from His Word that you could cling to then this scripture below is for you to meditate on it, and make it your declaration of faith while you are walking through your trials. Have a wonderful day as you remain in His loving presence. Love you all.
“Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you!” Luke 1:28
From this day forward, say this over and over, day and night–“I am highly favored and the Lord is with me!” The truth is you may not feel the least bit favored by God. And you don’t particularly feel like He is with you, either. You are feeling lost, alone, forgotten, and abandoned. But in obedience to the Lord–and by faith, not FEELINGS- you declare His promise to you every time you are tempted to give in to fear or doubt. Not only will God see you through to the victory, but His winning strategy will enabled you to have more peace and joy, right in the midst of your troubles.
In our walk with the Lord, I believe what He is trying to teach each and everyone of us is how to declare victory in the face of defeat, success in the face of failure, abundance in the face of lack. When we’re in the midst of negative circumstances, the Lord always prompts us to get into agreement with His Word and His promises, rather than dwelling on our problems. For instance, when illness threatens, we will feel so much better when we continually say, “My health is springing forth speedily!” (Isaiah 58:8 KJV) It’s not that we’re denying that we’re feeling poorly. It’s just that we know the Bible says that we can’t please God without faith, and that He is certain to reward our faith somehow, whenever we choose to exercise it. (Hebrews 11:6)
I believe that there are some victories that can only be won when we claim them by faith BEFORE they are realized. Nowadays, as soon as trouble hits, begin declaring, “The blessings of God are chasing me down and overtaking me!” (Deuteronomy 28:2) As we say these words over and over, a fresh sense of hope will begins to rise in your heart. You will begin to see yourself blessed instead of oppressed, victorious instead of a victim. And I believe that it makes all the difference in our outcome each and every time. If you are facing disheartening difficulties today, let me encourage you to begin declaring that you are abundantly blessed, right in the middle of your trials. Not only will supernatural peace and joy overtake you, but so will the victory that the Lord has in store for you!
