Even in times of uncertainty, I will move ahead as I rest in God’s Sovereignty, rejoice for all He’s done, and refuse to ever give up.
That is a Declaration of Truth I added to my life based on my final sermon this past Sunday at Element Church.
Truth statements have become one of the key spiritual disciplines which help me replace the lies of the enemy with the Truth of God’s Word. Every one of my declarations is rooted in Scripture:
Isaiah 43:14-19 (Portions from NLT 1st Edition) This is what the Lord says—your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: “For your sakes I will send an army against Babylon, forcing the Babylonians to flee in those ships they are so proud of. I am the Lord, your Holy One, Israel’s Creator and King. I am the Lord, who opened a way through the waters, making a dry path through the sea. I called forth the mighty army of Egypt with all its chariots and horses. I drew them beneath the waves, and they drowned, their lives snuffed out like a smoldering candlewick. But forget all that — it is nothing compared to what I’m going to do. For I am about to do a brand-new thing. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway in the wilderness for my people to come home. I will create rivers for them in the desert.”
Truth statements like these are much more than self-help or positive affirmations. Truth statements are just that…TRUTH!
Scripture tells us that the enemy is the father of lies. He uses those lies to distract us, derail us, and destroy us. The only way lies are defeated is by replacing them with Truth.
Say it! Believe it! Live it! Even in times of uncertainty, I will move ahead as I rest in God’s Sovereignty, rejoice for all He’s done, and refuse to ever give up.
