Father, I come before You today full of determination. But even as I do so I once again have the full realization and readily acknowledge that I can only be victorious when You are in the driver’s seat of my life.
You would think that after all this time that my defenses would be so shored up as to be impenetrable…but Trojan horses are never to be trusted. I have by no means fallen to our great enemy but a few of his fiery darts have found his mark. My shield of faith was not held in its proper position and I have suffered because of my laxness.
Father, I may have been wounded but I am not down! You have dressed my wounds and have helped shore up my defenses once more. I am keeping my “eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects my faith.” Hebrews 12:2 That is the only way that I can be victorious.
I am gladly dependent upon You, Lord. You are faithful. You will never let me down. You will never give up on me. I give this day – and every day – to You. My I keep my eyes fixed on You. Amen!
