I have this wonderful expectation that everything is going to turn out just fine, for my faith is rooted in Christ, in what He has provided and what He will continue to provide. My life bears the fruit of such divine provision, in fact, if folk want to see proof of God’s wonderful grace and favor…just look at me for all that I have and all of who I am, is all because of Christ. And lastly, I have complete knowledge of God’s will and I abound in spiritual wisdom and understanding.
This is what I believe and boldly and confidently declare! (note: these “I declare” statements work best when confessed out loud)
Colossians 1:4-9 (NLT) For we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and your love for all of God’s people, 5 which come from your confident hope of what God has reserved for you in heaven. You have had this expectation ever since you first heard the truth of the Good News. 6 This same Good News that came to you is going out all over the world. It is bearing fruit everywhere by changing lives, just as it changed your lives from the day you first heard and understood the truth about God’s wonderful grace. 7 You learned about the Good News from Epaphras, our beloved co-worker. He is Christ’s faithful servant, and he is helping us on your behalf. 8 He has told us about the love for others that the Holy Spirit has given you. 9 So we have not stopped praying for you since we first heard about you. We ask God to give you complete knowledge of his will and to give you spiritual wisdom and understanding.
