Prayer Devotional for the Day Dear heavenly Father, I am so thankful to know the truth of Your Word. It has not only brought me light, but Your love as well. Thank You for loving me and forgiving me and giving me the precious Holy Spirit. Lord, may I always share this marvelous light through allowing You to live in me, and through me. May others desire to know You, through my witness. Lord, forgive me when I fail You and am not a good representative of Your nature. Fill me daily with Your Holy Spirit and guide me in the way that will bring glory to You. I ask this in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

Thought for the Day

We must confess what God’s Word says about our circumstances and ourselves, not what the world or our fears may tell us. Speaking God’s Word causes the rest of our words to begin to line up with it. We should confess the Word over our problems, instead of confessing only our problems. When feeling discouraged or doubtful, we must continue to confess in faith what the Bible says about us or our situations. We must, however, be careful to have a Biblical (and not merely a positive) confession. A Biblical confession speaks God’s Word back to Him, while a
