Be Confident

Be confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ. Philippians 1:6 NKJV Be Confident

Lord, here I am with crumbs on my face. You’ve blessed me so much and yet I have food all over me. (*Don’t worry- This was hand-written last month.) But Lord, what would You like to talk about?

You. I love you and I want your success. Therefore you will be successful for I have already planned it. 

Thank you Lord, for Your mercy, forgiveness, and encouragement. I don’t deserve it, but it’s so nice You believe in me. Wait. You believe in me? Wow!

Yes Child, for I have placed My victory in your heart. You can be confident of this- I am for you. Not only am I not finished with you, but also I’ll bring My plans for you into completion. I always finish everything I start. Know this, I will never give up on My victory within your life. 

Oh Lord, guide me this day according to Your will. What would You have me to do? I have it in my heart to follow Your will. But sometimes I, like King David, use the wrong cart. Help me to accomplish Your will in all things.

I realize my sin of greed and gluttony has hindered Your plans for my testimony, so I ask for forgiveness. Lord, I’m thinking of asking You to zap me when I mess up. but I’m afraid of what I’ll get.

Lord, what do You want from Me? I’m too ashamed to ask for help.Come to Me. 

What can I do?

Nothing. You can’t do anything, but I can do everything. Come to Me every time you want to eat. Come to Me first, before you put a bite in your mouth. I have the strength. So come to Me. 

Lord, I’ve made some really stupid choices. I’ve lost my testimony.

Child, I plan to give you another testimony.

  1. thank you Debbie for always sharing your heart with us .You say the things that I feel almost every day. I put way to much emphasis on food instead of seeking God first. I pray for you and ask that you call my name to The Lord for victory against the sin of gluttony. Love you!!!!

    1. Carol, thank you so much for all your encouragement. God is going to grant both of us victory! For He has promised us victory in 1Corinthians 15:57 “But thanks be to God, who giveth us victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” We are guaranteed victory with Jesus on our side. Remember He IS for you. Love you too, my friend.
