"Let them shout for joy and
rejoice, who favor my vindication; and let them say continually, 'The
Lord be magnified, Who delights in the prosperity of His servant.'"|
(Psalm 35:27, NASB)
Notice in today’s verse, God’s people were commanded to go around saying continually, “Let God be magnified. He takes pleasure in prospering me.” I believe one reason they were supposed to say it all the time is so it would get down on the inside of their hearts.
See, when we hear something long enough, we start to believe it. It starts to affect the way we see things. I wonder what would happen if, all through the day, we decided to stop dwelling on negative, defeated thoughts like, “I’ll never get out of debt. My business will never expand. How can I send my children to college; it’s so expensive?” And what if you started dwelling on thoughts like, “God takes pleasure in prospering me. Good breaks are in my future. Explosive blessings are coming my way?”
Today, let the truth of God’s Word sink down into your heart. All throughout the day, declare His goodness. Declare His faithfulness. Declare His blessings because He delights in seeing you prosper!
|A Prayer for Today|
|"Father, thank You for Your goodness. Thank You for finding joy in seeing me succeed. Help me to see my life the way You see it. Help me to see and declare the blessing and victory You have for me in Jesus’ name. Amen."|
