A focus on Righteousness, Recompense & Reconnection ~
Week 3 Focus: Reconnection
Day 16: "The Bigger Picture"
Day 16 Scripture:
Philippians 1:27 AMP
Only [be sure to] lead your lives in a manner [that will be] worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I do come and see you or remain absent, I will hear about you that you are standing firm in one spirit [and one purpose], with one mind striving side by side [as if in combat] for the faith of the gospel.
Week 3 Confession:
I am a spirit.
I live in a body.
I possess a soul.
My spirit is alive to God!
I obey His commands... Therefore, I will pull strength from His Word when my flesh pulls on me to disobey Him. I declare that my flesh is under-subjection to my spirit. I will not be moved by what I see or how I feel; only by what I believe... and I believe God's Word.
God has made me courageous and I will not fear what others have to say about me obeying His Word.
My joy is to please The Father.
He gets the final Word to say about my future. What His Word says is what I will do. In Jesus’ name!
Help me to get along with difficult people. Give me grace to ignore what is not important and help me to see the bigger picture.
Show me how to put away striving from my conversation. I do not need to win or appear better than someone else... I am complete in You. Show me how to see the soft answer and how to lovingly apply it in my responses.
Help me to speak to every person as if I were speaking to You.
I cast down the lie that I need to stay away from people or that I can't find common ground with those who share the same God-given purpose as me.
Show me how to focus on the positive and to remember that the most important thing is that I work with people... as a Team,
to help others believe the Good News that YOU ARE LORD, in Jesus' name. Amen.
